Question about GE Dishwashers
It could either be the filter (most likely), the drain pump (likely) or the drain hose/tube (least likely).
Normally, there would a filter somewhere at the bottom of your dishwasher with the primary function of keeping large particles of food and foreign objects away from the impeller/pump. Most current dishwashers have self-cleaning filters and therefore regular cleaning is no longer a concern. However, some other dishwashers need to have the filter manually removed and cleaned regularly or as even in your case. If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your dishwasher and may cause the problem as you have described.
To check the filter and/or the drain pump, the bottom has to be exposed, the filter/pump located and cleaned.
There are pages online with illustrative description and detailed procedures on how to go about this. Perhaps you can try referencing here and/or here.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
