If your model has an air vent, make sure it is clear and flowing freely. i the air is not venting through that line, the water will back up and stay in the washer.

SOURCE: my dishwasher will not drain
GE dishwashers will have a sump
entrance screen ( #4 ) that should be
removed and checked for any gookus, see 1 or 2 screws on the cover top, which is
behind the lower spray arm. Almost all ( some newer GE dishwashers have a separate
drain pump and motor - but for our purpose, we will talk about the most
common GE dishwashers ) GE dishwashers have a drain
solenoid ( #1 ) that can fail and stop
the draining. If the solenoid cannot pull in the silver plunger, the drain port
will not open to allow the motor and pump assembly to drain the water out. The
solenoid can be ohmed
with an ohm meter for continuity, or tested to see if it is receiving 110-120 volts AC. Many GE
dishwashers have a self
clean filter ( #3 ) inside at the back.
The draining water must pass through a plunger in the self clean filter body.
This can get clogged up, or the plunger may twist and distort and not allow the
draining water to get past. The filter can be removed from the inside and the
plunger will twist out of the self cleaning body for testing/checking. Next obstacle
for the draining water in the back
flush valve ( #2 ). This valve can twist
or distort and block the water flow as well. The drain port will need to be
accessed to check this flapper valve, the drain port will untwist from the self
clean filter body. All hoses in-between the items mentioned above and the drain
hose itself all the way to the house plumbing should be checked for
Some extra filter, draining tips and pictures....
During the wash and rinse modes of the cycle, soiled water falls down the back of the tub and into the filter area. The water comes through the filter and back into the tub. During the wash and rinse periods all ( we hope! ) the water will pass through the filter. The soil will settle into the collection chamber and is held there. When the dishwasher goes into the pump out mode the water in the sump is pumped through the collection chamber. This closes the piston valve to the inside of the tub. The pump flushes the collection chamber of all the food soil and pumps it down the drain. A check valve is located in the drain line port. This valve allows the water to flow in the drain direction only and prevents the water from coming back into the tub. The drain line check valve must close in the back flow direction or the piston valve in the collection chamber may not reopen into the tub after the pump out is complete. Water should "fall" through the filter and go back into the tub....the heavier food particles go down into the chamber and are collected.

I hope this helps...good luck and ggod day...please rate my effort......thanks....The Fang.

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.

Sometimes these get gunked up and need to be coaxed....so take a butter knife...insert it in the edge of the dispenser tray...pry gently...all the while turning the timer control knob...it should pop open at one point if not try a little more pressure...and once open .clean thoroughly..if it persists you may have a timer or control panel issue...also use factory recommended soaps...
I hope this helps...Good Luck and Good day....thank you for rating my effort.....The Fang.

Check floater valve.
Inside the unit. On the floor. Looks like and small upside down cup.
If it is jammed in the up position it will stop the machine. Lift, clean underneath. It should drop and the machine will run.
The float valve stops the machine from over filling.
Could also be clog in the drain filter. Remove the cover from the drain inside the unit. look for clog in the filer of the drain.
If none of the above it is the timer. The timer tells the unit what to do (fill, run, empty). If it is not working the drain function will not run.
