Solution Found!!

Checked for power to dishwasher. According to the manual, shutting off the breaker for more that 30 seconds resets the dishwasher. It did!!! The dishwasher works fine now. THANKS!!!

SOURCE: GE Nautilus Drain Problem

I had the same problem (water remaining in the bottom) after the rinse cycle. FYI my GE Nautilus is 7-years old.
(1) I disconnected the drain tube at the garbage disposal unit (in the sink) and, using a wire coat hangar freed a 'plug' of sludge located at the spot where the drain tube clamps onto the garbage disposal. I blew into the drainage tube to further clear other 'plugs' I observed but could not reach w/the coat hangar.
(2) I unscrewed the Filter/Strainer on the inside (bottom) of the dishwasher; and further removed the inner filter; cleaned both out.
(3) Re-ran the dishwasher thru complete wash/rinse cycles (to check for leaks. There were none.
Finally, upon completion of the w/r cycles there will always be a small pool of water (residing in the filter area). However my dishes are clean and (after 7-years) checking the drain tube and filters was a breeze.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: GE Nautilus won't drain after Rinse Cycle

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.

I have a GLD 4456R00CS dishwasher that is maybe 6 months old. It seems to cycle properly, but has never really cleaned the dishes. This is the worst dishwasher we've ever had (over 25 years) and I'm...


Sorry you have had so much problems with this dishwasher. Before you "take it to the street" please check one more thing. I have had so many people say similar problems.
  1. Check that you are using rise aid if their is an adj. set it to 4-5
  2. Make sure the soap in the dishwasher is a name brand. Dollar store soap will only get white film and poor results
  3. Everyone should run there sink water for at least 2min before you run the dishwasher making sure the cold water is flushed from the line and hot water enters (better wash and shorter wash times)
  4. Water entering has to be at least 125 degrees always.
Also run a bottle of Dishwasher Magic once a month to clean out your dishwasher.
This should do wonders for your cleaning results. Have a super weekend!

Won't clean-looks to run properly


check the sump area below the pump and clean out any waste food debris,etc. and also the drain check valve,it may be plugged and not draining waste water completely or not closing completely and letting waste water back into the sump and this could be getting back through the pump and sprayed back onto your dishes

I have a GE Model GLD 4260L dishwasher. It is noisy in wash cycl


Hey Roy, the main pump/motor mechanism that supplies water through the washarms is a seperate pump from the drain pump.
Try this since it sounds like your handy, I bet this diagram will help you.
Go to www.geappliances.com scroll down while looking over on the left side of the site and click on the quick link of parts and accessories, then scroll down and click on the picture of the dishwasher, scroll down to the box where you enter your dishwasher model number, click on either of the models that pop up( both are the same) then click on the little arrow next to the red go button,to drop down your choices, click on motor-pump mechanism,then click GO,then click on the red letters that say "click here to view diagram of motor-pump mechanism" and then an exploded view of your dishwashers pump and other units will appear,study the diagram and this should help.
Wow that was a long road, but hey I hope this helps you solve your problem. Good luck !

Calypso - water goes straight to drain hose-not drum


the hose may still be filled from last cycle. try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
