Question about GE 24 in. GSD5500G - Multiple Color Built-in Dishwasher
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Just os you know there are 12 models of this dishwasher and you only gave a partial model number. It is missing several digits after the last G. The symptom you describe would be applicable to all 12 models.
There are a few things that can cause this symptom.
1. Debris in the motor pump impeller (Things like toothpicks or small bones / bone fragments)
2. The motor pump seal has failed letting water into the motor bearings.
^--- These are the 2 most common reasons.
Take a look under the motor pump assembly for the tell tale signs of water dripping onto the floor under the dishwasher. (stains or a circular soap pattern) If you see a water or a soap stain on the floor the motor pump seal has failed and the only remedy is replacement of the motor pump assembly.

There is a possibility that the impeller is jammed with something but if the unit is 4 or more years old, most likely is the motor pump seal has failed causing subsequent motor bearing failure. It is best to remove the motor pump assembly for any attempt at clearing foreign debris from the pump impeller. Also look for a broken impeller blade during the clearing / cleaning process. If you thnk the motor can be salavaged make sure to lunricate the bearings with a paraffin based oil. We use the "Zoom Spout" Olier
available at most LOCAL appliance parts sources.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
