Question about GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher
This unit is not even two years old and will not drain after the wash cycle ends. I removed the two drain grates in the bottom of the unit, and was unable to find an obstruction. Don't know what the problem is.
I had the same problem (water remaining in the bottom) after the rinse cycle. FYI my GE Nautilus is 7-years old.
(1) I disconnected the drain tube at the garbage disposal unit (in the sink) and, using a wire coat hangar freed a 'plug' of sludge located at the spot where the drain tube clamps onto the garbage disposal. I blew into the drainage tube to further clear other 'plugs' I observed but could not reach w/the coat hangar.
(2) I unscrewed the Filter/Strainer on the inside (bottom) of the dishwasher; and further removed the inner filter; cleaned both out.
(3) Re-ran the dishwasher thru complete wash/rinse cycles (to check for leaks. There were none.
Finally, upon completion of the w/r cycles there will always be a small pool of water (residing in the filter area). However my dishes are clean and (after 7-years) checking the drain tube and filters was a breeze.
Hope this helps

I think i found a solution to this problem.it might not be the manufacturer recommend,but it works for me all the time now .Here is what i found out : on my model,there is a HOT START OPTION,then START,then SHORT WASH,RINSE ONLY. what i do was : WITH THE DOOR OPEN, starting at the HOT START OPTION,i move the arrow toward the end of the cycle ,close to the START line, but a little bit on the left of the START line,then i close the door,when i turn the handle to close,machine running,and for a minute or less,you will hear the pump start draining the water.The way i did that because i figure it just like the washing machine,when you move the arrow toward ALMOST to the end of a cycle,the pump has to drain water out.TRY IT AND PLEASE TELL ME IF IT WORK FOR YOU- GOOD LUCK

My dishwasher is less than 2 years but it's not draining water after the cycle finished. Anyone knows how to fix it?
