Question about Amana Dishwashers
SOURCE: Dishwasher doesn't drain
Greg, if the model number ends in GO1, your dishwasher has a piston nut assy. thats problably giving you the grief. If this assy. goes bad you will have water left in the tub at the end of the wash. A common GE problem. It's located under the filter screen in the back and just unscrews out. Part number is wd24x199. It's an easy fix. Look up the part on the net to get an idea of what it looks like. Catriver..post back.

Catriver: The dishwasher model is gsd5920do1bb. I probably posted the original problem in the wrong place. Does a similar fix apply? Sorry about the confusion. Greg

It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Check if motor spins. In case it spins, the problem is with the pump ,in case it doesn't spin it could be a motor problem or a motor and pump problem. Good luck

More likely: the solenoid which directs the water to either the drain or the spray arm is clogged/jammed. Located underneath near the drain line.

Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects. Also check the hose connected to the disposal. Mine apparently had a kink in it. When I straightened the hose the dishwasher drained at full speed (I recently had a plumber re-route a hot waterline. He must has bent the hose). Hope this helps. If not go to the GE website. That's where I found my answer.

If the machine functions properly when you add water, then it is likely there is a problem with the water supply. Start at the valve under the kitchen sink.
First I would turn that valve off and remove the water line. Then turn the valve on slowly. Use a small bucket or a large cup to catch the water. You should also have a lot of towels on hand.
If you are not getting much water through it, you may need to change that valve. If you are getting a good flow of water through it, inspect the water line checking for crimped or crushed parts. (is the line copper? braided steel?)
Reconnect the water line to the valve and disconnect it at the dishwasher. Now flush water through the line. how is the flow?
Lastly inspect the water inlet valve on the machine. I found a walkthrough for that at http://www.easyapplianceparts.com/repair.aspx?appliance=dishwasher&part=dishwasher-wont-fill
Actually, you might want to check that first. It may be as easy as cleaning a screen. I'm a plumber, not an appliance tech, so I tend to take a global approach to water supply.
Best of luck
