Question about GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher
Remove the bottom panel and check if the pump is working.
If the motor is not moving but makes a humming noise then replace the pump and motor assembly.
If there is nothing wrong with the motor, check the drain line.
I would start to check the drain line from the air gap on top of the sink (if there is one). Remove the cover and the top piece and check for clog.
Disconnect the drain hose from the air gap, put the end of the hose in a bucket and start the drain. Look for any foreign objects coming out.
Remove the lower dish rack, then remove the filter frame on the back (#543 on the body break down diagram) and unscrew the piston & nut (#564 on the same break down diagram). Replace if it's worn out.
If it did not help, remove all water from the dishwasher. Remove the dishwasher from the cabinet. Disconnect the drain hose from the check valve (#560 on the body break down diagram).
Check the drain hose for any clog.
Replace the check valve assembly.

Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
