SOURCE: GE Nautilus GSD4200 Dishwasher will not wash/drain

The average life of a dishwasher is 7-10 years. The symptoms strongly indicate a motor pump problem and my personal opinion is if that is the case youd be better to put the money toward a new dishwasher.

SOURCE: Dishwasher not draining water

I had the same problem....removed hoses, checked for cloggs the hole nine yards.....Inside of the unit towards the back in the bottom is a filter cover and in the middle is a valve that you just screw out. It has a rubber stopper that overtime breaks down....I was able to pick up the part locally for about $17CDN, replaced the part and the unit drains properly now.....now I have an issue with no power

GSD4020Z07BB won't drain. replaced pump and piston nut


When you replaced the pump I am assuming you replaced the whole assembly that pumps water for the wash and drain. See item 310 in this diagram.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/GE-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Model-GSD4020Z07BB/0432/0130000/G0040034/00003?blt=15&prst=&shdMod=

If the dishwasher goes through the wash cycle then it was unlikely the thing that was faulty. The pump is shared by both the wash and drain cycle. It is likely the impeller (item 429) is not getting the pulse to change direction so that it draws water from the drain sump to the drain hose rather then to the wash arms as it does in wash cycle. The solenoid connection might be faulty or the controller output is not there.

Dishwasher not draining


Most likely there is some blockage in the drain filter or the drain hose. I am assuming you are able to hear the drain pump operate at the right time in the wash cycle.

The parts involved are shown in this diagram.

Dishwasher isn't draining all the water out after cycle is complete. Checked all lines, no clogs and both pumps are working


YOU MAY NEED A SIMPLE DEVICE CALLED A PISTON AND NUT ASSEMLY. A RUBBER SEAL ON IT HAS FAILED.
TO LOCATE IT......OPEN DISHWASHER, REMOVE LOWER RACK AND IN THE REAR YOU WILL SEE A SCREEN COVER, REMOVE THAT SCREEN AND UNDERNEATH TOU SHOULD SEE A ROUND THING, UNSCREW IT AND INSPECT IT IN THE CENTER RUBBER SEAL, IF BAD REPLACE THE PISTON AND NUT ASSEMBLY

GE Profile Dishwasher does not drain. model #


I had a similar problem with a GE GSD5811 model. The hoses were clear, and the auxiliary pump worked fine. It turns out that it was the "piston" assembly that had basically disintegrated over time. This part diverts water to the pump during the drain cycle.

To check it, remove the mesh filter at the rear of the inside of the machine, by carefully unclipping the heater element from the back of the machine and removing the 4 hex-head screws securing the filter panel.) Unscrew the piston assembly from the tub, and pull it out. If the sealing plunger has deteriorated or is jammed, replace it. The part number for the "piston and nut assembly" for my machine (and probably numerous others) is WD24X10018. It should cost anywhere between $10 and 16, depending on where you shop.

Another possibility is a bad drain solenoid. (This is what actually triggers the piston assembly during the drain cycles.)

Dishwasher won't drain


Check the piston and nut assembly. This is located inside the tub at the very back, behind the spray arm. There is a filter and frame that does not allow you to see it so you have to remove it. To do so first remove the filter frame, (4 1/4 in hexhead screws). Once you have remove all 4 screws then you will see a circular yellowish colored piece of plastic. This is your piston and nut assembly. To remove, just loosen it counter-clockwise. If you can't loosen it by hand, then try taking needle nosed pliers and opening them slightly, enough so that each tip of nose can grab each ridge in the plastic nut. When you get this out, take a close look. You should see a spring and inside, a piece of rubber(off whitish color). If you were to take your hand from the bottom and compress the spring, and view to part from the top, you should see that whitish rubber gasket create a seal. If it does not then that part needs to be replaced. Only about 15.00 or so and they are notorious for going bad in time. If it looks like the seal is ok, then I would check your drain line, disposer, house plumbing for clogs. There is a remote chance that a piece of debris may have gotten into your collection chamber, but thats very rareI'm betting that its a bad piston and nut assembly though. No auxillary drain pump on that model so I would say we most definately have a bad piston and nut assembly, but still check it first. Takes less than 5 minutes for avg person to check. Good luck!

GE Nautilus dishwasher wont run


This is a typical GE problem which I have seen many times...When a DW sets for a while not being used...the motor often freezes up....Take the front (lower panel off....find the motor assembly...(with the DW unplugged!!...very important)reach in with you hand or a screw driver...preferably your hand...at the back of the motor...there should be a impeller blade...you should be able to reach in with a finger and pull it down..it may be resistant so find a way to hold it in place as you reach up to the next impller blade and pull down further...finally it will all of a sudden free up....after which you plug it back in and start it up...I am also including a step by step (no drain problem check list as you may run into an issue like this if it has not been operated for a while ....notice article # 5).


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

I hope this helps...it is always useful to include the Model #...more specific instructions can then be provided

Good Luck and good day.....please rate my effort...the Fang

GE diswasher GSD4020Z02BB doesn't completely drain


rs, in the back under the screen is a piston nut assy. This is a common problem on these GE's. The seal on the assy. becomes warped or worn and when this happens we get water left in the tub after drain. It's an easy fix. The screen comes off and the pistion nut assy. simply unscrews. The part number is WD24X220. You can look it up on the net, inexpensive. Catriver..post back.
