Question about GE 24 in. Profile PDW9880JSS Built-in Dishwasher
The obstruction can be external to the unit. Check the drain at EACH connection working backward from the sink connection all the way to the motor pump outlet hole. Do not forget to dis-assemble the Air-Gap (if installed) and to check the inside of the garbage disposal hole also.
If all of these areas are free of obstructions then there is a good possibility that the pump impeller is either very worn / broken blade or there may be damage in the pump housing itself.
I think that if you look at the external drain lines, holes, and connections you notice a big change in the dishwashers performance.
Noting that you have hard water.... I really don't like promoting products.. but when one works and works well I will pass that information along.
There is a product out there made by FINISH called Jet-Dry and it comes in a mini basket form:
or an additive if you have a rinse dispenser:
Lastly.... if you need to clean up the dishwasher.. on an empty no dishes cycle add 2 cups of white vinegar when you know the cycle has just started filling NOT draining and let it wash. Then do your dishes after that cycle.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I just took mine apart (bottom turntable, screen, etc.) and I was disgusted by the grime and gum that was clogging everything. I think it was keeping all the water a gritty white, which constantly left residue. I am currently running a load... hope that the "clean" dishwasher actually washes my dishes now!
