Question about GE GSD4500G Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

My tub on my GSD4800 D/W will not drain.

I have disconnected the line to the disposal and still no water came out. I blew into this line thinking it was slogged, Nothing. I could not blow into it. I have removed the housing, strain so to speak to see if I cold get to the pump or the other end of the line to look for a clog. I can't see what is there, still some water stands. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I thought this was a high end Natulas product that would last me over 5 years. Has just gunk clogged the lines and I can't fix or do you have any ideas. Thanks so much for your help and will await your reply.

GE 720 Potscrubber I started with the water puddling in bottom now it progressed to leaking on the floor. I had a repair guy come to my home yesterday and he says a broken seal and my total cost to replace seal and labor is $165 plus tax.
What is the life expectancy? He did not sound too promising about the future of my dishwasher and said he is certain there will be another repair need shortly something related to the water saturating an area underneath the dishwasher?
He reccomended I call Sears and replace with a Whirlpool product. He claimed he put his kids thru college repairing GE products. My husband wants to repair and I dont because of fear of spending more money!

SOURCE: GE Triton Dishwasher will not drain they water after it's cycle...thoughts?

Peace,
Cut off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes and then turn it on and see if the system resets!
The machine was in your home 3 years , and used for more than that by someone else! I can tell you by the model that its at least 10 years old!
appliances more than 9 years old cost you money to run and fix! Throw it out and do not put good money into bad!

The new ones no matter how inexpensive will wash better and cost you a hell of a lot less to operate. They are so much more energy efficient today that they pay for them selves in a couple of years! With a new machine watch your water and power bill go down!!!
Other wise you need hands on service!
if you got the money do it new!

Bless You!

SOURCE: dble sink, one with the garbage disp. won't drain standing water

It's a drain clog within the disposal. Try a drain cleaner, if no luck, you will likely need to replace it.

SOURCE: GE diswasher GSD4020Z02BB doesn't completely drain

This is exactly what happened to me and I paid the repair man. Learn from me. Open dishwasher, unscrew screen along back of dishwasher. Piston assembly should be right there. Part is WD24X10018. GE will charge you $17 plus labor. Can buy it on-line for around $12. Takes about two minutes to fix.

The situation is most likely linked to the previous cycle not being completed when you press the Cancel button. Most likely the controller is not timing correctly or the water is not heating enough.

Are the dishes hot at the end of the dry cycle?

How to repair or fix a Dishwasher if it doesn't drain


Dishwasher Doesn’t Drain Following a cycle, a small pool of clean water inside the tub is normal. An excessive amount of water means the pump isn’t pumping water out properly, the drain hose isn’t carrying it to the drain pipe, or the house’s drain lines are backed up.
If dirty water spews from the air gap, the drain line is kinked or clogged. (If you’ve recently installed a garbage disposer, be sure the knockout plug for the dishwasher was removed when the connection was made; see your disposer instructions.)
1) Remove the cover from the air gap at the top of the sink (usually a short chrome domed cylinder that sits at the back of the sink), and, using a stiff wire, clean it out. Also check the entire length of the drain hose for kinks or blockages, especially at the drain connection to the disposer or drain line.
2) Once the dishwasher is cool, shut off the power to it, and—if your dishwasher is made to allow this—remove the strainer, located under the bottom spray arm at the base of the cabinet (see illustration). Unscrew the hubcap, lift the spray arm off, and remove any clips that hold the strainer to get it out. Scrub it clean with a brush, then replace it.
3) Determine whether the sink trap or house drain line is clogged.
4) If the dishwasher still doesn’t drain properly, the drain hose may be clogged or the drain valve may need replacement. You can check the drain hose for obstructions, but this sometimes involves pulling the dishwasher out from under your counter to access the hose, disconnecting the hose at both ends, and flushing it out with a faucet or garden hose or replacing it with a new hose.

Replaced disposal and now dishwasher isnt draining


It sounds like you've done everything fine. I would disconnect the dishwasher drain line from the disposal, have a bucket ready and see if it will drain. It's possible that there is a plug or something else left in the disposal opening that is blocking the water. If the dishwasher won't drain with the hose off of the disposal, there is a problem with the dishwasher that has nothing to do with your disposal installation. Hope this helps and good luck!

Will not drain water out of tub


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.



First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

LEAVING WATER IN TUB


I think your problem is in the garbage disposal unit. There is a knock-out seal in the outlet on the disposal unit where the dishwasher drain tube attaches. If you don't remove the knock-out then there is nowhere for the dishwasher water to go, and it will spill out onto the floor.

Dishwasher not draining


I had water at the bottom of my 4 year old plus dishwasher and of course I thought the worst. Did the pump go out, bad impeller, or what else could it be! I started with the easy stuff first and disconnected the drain lines. The drain line runs from the dishwasher to an air gap mounted to my sink, which keeps the drain line from getting an airlock. From the air gap device another larger line runs to the garbage disposal. I used an 8MM wrench to loosen the clamps enough to pull the drain lines off and drained them into a bucket. There really wasn't any resistance to water flow and no real chunks, I was disappointed.
I then took the actual air gap out of the sink by removing a large plastic nut and pulling the devise out from underneath the sink. When I inspected the air gap I saw a wad of hairy, feathery plastic stuff blocking the flow of water. I took the chunk out, reassembled everything and it works like new again.
It is a very easy fix and now even the area under the sink is clean to boot.
