It fills & dumps the water with no problem BUT it will not wash the dishes it just makes a humming noise.

OK, i would test the motor to make sure that it is working properly. this is a two speed motor and, if the windings are bad or separating, it will not be able to switch speeds. if the motor checks out ok, this will confirm control failure. replace timer or control board in this case.

Dishwasher doesn't drain after washing

Try to see if you hear a slight hum noise from the electric motor under the bottom. The noise will not last for long. This is the motor trying to start in the reverse direction. For the unit to drain the motor must run in the opposite direction so it can actually wash dishes well in on direction and not run in the other. After power has been removed (and maybe water too) get under unit and see if motor will turn in both directions. If it does, then the nearby start capacitor needs replacing or the motor is defective. A bad motor will not hum for long before the "heat trip" safety device will cut it out and it will then have to cool off before more test or done

My dishwasher is making a humming sound and does not rinse?

A humming sound can be a failing wash motor (that drives the water pump) or it can be as simple as a blockage in the the pump area beneath the lower spray arm, under the filter.
Remove the spray arm and the filter top (screws will need to be removed)
Use a flashlight and inspect all over the sump area for debris that is blocking/jamming the impeller area. Reasemble and test with a short cycle.
If the dishwasher continues to make the same humming, it is time to replace the wash pump.
Good Luck! Post back here if you would like more guidance.

GE Nautilus Built-In Dishwasher

This would be the motor that spins the dish washing unit in the bottom. The noise you hear might mean that the motor will need to be replaced.
