Hello, My GE dishwasher is making a grinding sound when it runs, everything is working properly, except for the grinding. I think it something stuck in the filter but i don't know how to get the filter off.

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher is making a grinding noise. Typically that noise could be a faulty motor/pump. I have included a link to your manaul. If that does not help I would recommend having a technician out to your home to properly diagnose and repair your appliance. Best of luck. -Matt Frigidaire Manual Search Results
It will help if you provide the make and model of dishwasher. There can be several reasons for dishwasher not draining. The most common is blocked filters or drain hose. Also ensure the kitchen side of drain is clear. If pump is running but making grinding sounds then something is blocking the drain pump. If you do not hear pump running sound then the dishwasher may not even be getting to the drain cycle for other reasons.
the unit has a "food chopper" inside the pump sump. it is to chop up "food" items and not bones, seeds or other items. you can keep running the unit and see if after 2 or 3 loads the noise goes away. ie: the item get chopped up small enough to go out the drain. if it doesnt go away, then you will need to get into the wash pump and see what is stuck in the sump. its not hard to take apart and you will find whatever shouldnt be in there.
Unfortunately, your dishwasher may have experienced a power surge when the power went off and dmaged some internal components or the control logic. There is no way of knowing the extent of your problem without a thorough diagnostics to it. It could be something as simple as a circuit borad component, stuck relay but this kind of repair is probably not something you would want to tackle yourself unless properly trained and with the proper test equipment. If you have homeowners insurance, it may cover the damage.. If not, then a service call is most likely required.
