Why is my countertop dishwasher stuck in drain mode(s), and won't initiate or complete any wash cycle?


normally if a dishwasher fills then pauses it is trying to read the water level if it fills again it is trying get a reading from the pressure switch when it cant determine the water level it will drain to prevent it leaking, however you should get a error code for this kind of fault which makes me think it is the control board which is at fault by not being able to read the sensor rather than the sensor itself not working

GE model GSD600003 repair manual: Before you answer this, please tell me if I will be charged for the answer, in case I'm not interested at this time. Do you have a diagram of the drain area and water...


I'm not sure how mildew can grow in a dishwasher that is working well, but after cleaning it and putting things back together, it does now seem to be working. I thought that the water wasn't filling but I guess the heating element heats up before the water fills the dishwasher. So when I tried again and started the dishwasher from the beginning and waited, it did progress to filling water and going through the whole cycle.

Contunuous draining turned into a flood when unit powered off


The fill valve is governed by the float switch. I doubt that your fill valve (solenoid) has failed.

Focus on replacing the float switch and you should be all set.

Good Luck!

Dishwasher keeps tripping electric


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?
Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!
Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.
The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwash
If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.


  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.


Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.
