GE 2004 model nautilus GSD4260j00ss won't drain

My dishwasher drains through all the cycles except right before it goes into the platewarmer cycle and when it finishes that cycle and turns off it leaves a pool of water at the bottom. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: soap door latch won't latch close

Make sure the dial that you turn to start the dishwasher is all the way to the beginning. Sometimes my little grandson comes by and plays with it, turning it. I load, add soap and the dispenser won't close. I check the outside dial, and sure enough, set it to the very beginning and the dispenser locks in place!

SOURCE: GE Dishwasher is not draining water

GE Prifile dishwashers have a valve called a "Piston" and an "O" -Ring under the screen that become degraded over time. The part is around $10 and it takes about an hour to do the repair. You can do this yourself if you are handy and have some simple tools. You can go to the GE website and get a free owners manual.

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.

Runs through the cycle but will not drain


Pull out the machine drain hose form your main drain system. Place this hose in a bucket and watch whether it's draining.

If it drains, the machine side is OK. Check the main drain connection point for clogging.

Water does not drain from GE dishwasher.


Remove the drain hose from under the sink to verify that there is no clog. If the dishwasher runs in the "cleaning" cycle, but won't drain, you either have a clog or a bad solenoid. All the solenoid does is opens a little door to change from cleaning cycle to drain cycle. This part is VERY EASY to change. Definitely a project for DIY. The part runs around $60 from a parts place. Check ebay if you do not need it immediately and you can save abt $30.

Drain cycles don't end even after the fill cycles start.


This is one problem I researched for GE dishwashers and however..it appears to be a universal problem with lots of brands...The float get stuck in one position or the other...you can see it inside the DW...(round like a half round ball....pull it out see if it is gunked up and clean it out replace it and make sure it moves up and down freely...all the while you should here a clicking noise. Anyway here is what I also found...similar or exactly the same as I said but with some extra info that may suit your model.....

The issue was a full overflow trap which pushes up a toilet-style float and trips a small switch. This effectively freezes the dishwasher in "drain" cycle and for whatever reason puts the panel on Heated Dry. Caused by too much soap or accidental or accumulated inclusion of regular or hand soap (from dishes w/ soap in them in the sink).

Taking off the toe kick and removing a couple panels under the dishwasher lets you barely see the tiny tray that is the culprit, and you can sneak paper towels into one edge of it to dry it out and return it to service.

Hopr this helps...good luck and good day...thank yopu for rating my effort.....The Fang.

Nautilus dish washer won't drain


  1. Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit (there are others, this is just an example)
  2. Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
  3. Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
  4. Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause. ( not all dishwashers )
  5. Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise
  6. If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plugat connection.
  7. Check pump impeller for damage.
  8. Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.
    ok.
