Question about GE Dishwashers

2 Answers

Have a GLD6500L00CC dishwasher. after the completion of any cycle there is a lot of water standing in bottom.It is understood that there should be a little water to keep the seal lubricated but the level is as high as the brackets supporting the heating element. The manual refers to running the discharge hose high referring to the installation instructions. The installer did not leave any install instructions only the Operating manual. There is no air gap installed. Where do you go to get a parts break down showing the actual location?

    What is the purpose of running the drain hose high? Is it to prevent waste water from the sink backing into the dishwasher? I could not find a parts break down of all parts on this washer or a repair manual at that web site.

    I do appreciate the help, but when I give you the model #, You should be able to tell me that there is a pump used only for drain. To get to the inlet of this pump is not very easy, but it can be explained. All you did was to give out a lot of generic things to look for.
    The problem with the drain was too much dry detergant and it was in the sump. The major problem was how to get into the sump. I figured it out no thanks to you! When I signed on to this site, it was my understanding it was to be a GE service person. Again if only you would have given me a parts break down & how these parts are connected would have done wonders.
    Everything you told me was known by me prior to asking for advice.

    The purpose is two fold:
    1. To prevent waste water from sink reentering dishwasher. Most DW have a check valve to prevent this.
    2. Grease and other sediments will collect in the drain hose, and over time begin restricting water flow. All DW draining is a timed event, therefore the pump will operate for a specific length of time then stop. If the drain hose becomes restricted, there will be water remaining in the DW at the end of the drain period.

Hi rischaaf,

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.

Water standing in tub


If there is a lot of water sitting inside the applicance, it's possible that the high water float switch has been activated and is preventing the dishwasher from running. Open the door, remove the bottom rack, dip as much water out of the bottom as possible with a shallow ladle or even tupperware container. When that is accomplished, shut the door and try to run a drain cycle. If the unit won't start, you may have to remove more water. You don't have to have the rack in place to run the drain cycle.

Dishwasher not completely draining


Make sure the drain screen is not clogged at the bottom of the dishwasher or that you water drianline is not pinched or clogged behund the dish washer. if you are confidant in doing this you may be able to troubleshoot it. It possibly could be a water pump issue too.

Draining after completion of cycle


Hello,
Miele dishwashers are typical not to drain all of the water. It is the way the siphoning system is designed. You will always have a bit of standing water after cycle completion but should not be above the bottom filter. You can manually drain the dishwasher by selecting any cycle and letting it run for 30 seconds and then turn the dishwasher off. Hope this helps

I have a GE PDW 8200 Dishwasher and there is standing water in the bottom of the tube. Why is there standing water after a complete cycle?


If it is older, the pump may not be draining the machine completely. The impellers, which is what acually moves the water could be clogged with yuck and could be cleaned if you can take the machine apart. If you call the repairman, he will likely replace the pump and motor.
