SOURCE: dishwasher will not drain water out

if plumbed in under the sink, check the spigot the drain hose goes to is not blocked - a common problem. if on drain you should be able to hear the drain pump working. if you hear a faint humming noise instead, then there is probably a foreign object stuck in pump. also check for blockage in the drain hose

SOURCE: GE Profile Dishwasher (5 years old); Leaving residue on dishes

In my case the counter mounted breather for the drain tube was being restricted ... finally to the point it would not drain the tub at all. I disassembled the above counter drain assembly and cleaned it out as it wass completely blocked and things work very well again. I would suggest this foirst as it is an easy task and is done 'above the counter'.
I then ran 2 cups of CLR with wash cycle ... no dishes to clean out the rest of the washer as on dissaembly of the internals to diagnose they were and very scummed up with a hard white crusty substance that was completely blocking some of the drain sump performations.

SOURCE: GE Nautilus GSD4200 Dishwasher will not wash/drain

The average life of a dishwasher is 7-10 years. The symptoms strongly indicate a motor pump problem and my personal opinion is if that is the case youd be better to put the money toward a new dishwasher.

SOURCE: specks of "sand-like" food on my dishes; water not draining

I bought a replacement filter and that dramatically cut down on the amount of "specs." Now there are only a few in some of the glasses. I also cleaned out the drain underneath the screen, there were peas and corn in there, I just used a shop vac to **** them out. Seems to be much better now, I think a good inside cleaning of the washer will help out too. Hope this helps...

Before loading into the machine you have to remove food particles. Washer will wash the greasy surface. If particles are left in the dishes, the same will find entry to the drain system. Check the drain filter in your machine. Clean them. Mostly problem will be solved!

I ran a load of dishes and the soapy water leaked out on the floor. The dishes were done, but there was standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher. Do I need a repair man?


Someone put dish soap in your machine. Put some ... SOME ... salt in your machine and run it empty - turn off the heaters for this cycle.

If you are CERTAIN THIS IS NOT THE CASE, maybe you should call the repair guy in your area.

Standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher


I had the same problem - a 10 minute fix. The issue tends to be that the trap gets clogged by debris (like broken glass etc.) and restricts the amount of water that can be evacuated by the tub.

1. Undo the trap cover (two hex headed screws)
2. Remove the trap cover
3. Remove the inner trap grate
4. BE CAREFUL NOW ! Gently remove debris - this can have broken glass in it !!! - You can use a wet vac if you have one. Ensure all debrs is removed and the trap is clear.
5. Clean trap cover and grate
6. Re-install cover and grate
7. Bingo !

I just had this problem with a zanussi dishwasher - I opened it this afternoon to find the bottom full of water - luckily not deep enough to flood my kitchen when I opened the door. I determined that the sink drain was clear (ran water, could hear it going down the drain outside), so the problem had to be in the dishwasher or drain hose. I poured just a little mr muscle sink & plughole unblocker in the bottom of the machine where the trap is, left it about 30 mins as per instructions, followed by a little boiled water - no difference. Scooped out the water, removed the filter (the big round bit, not just the trap that you pull out and empty) and scooped out till I could see what appears to be the out pipe. Thought what the heck and ran a rinse cycle - no dishes, no detergent and lower tray and arm thing removed for convenience. Water drained just fine, ran a second rinse cycle which got rid of the suds from the plughole unblocker. I now have an extremely clean and sparkling dishwasher and am about to run a load of dishes through it.

I hope that my post is helpful to you, I don't know if all the steps are necessary, it may have been a freak occurrence that would have gone away with a simple rinse cycle. It may of course be a problem with the pump on yours, I was hoping that wasn't the case on mine, and I had lots of old towels on hand in case water came out when I opened the door. But it's possible your machine has the same problem as mine and that this info works for you, I hope that is the case.
