HI, this seems to be an obstructed hose(drain). i recommend inspecting the hoses before replacing the pump.

To access the drain hose remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.

The drain hose connects to the pump and runs to the sink drain (or to the air gap on top of the sink). The pump has a second hose that recirculates the water back into the dishwasher. The drain hose is roughly 1 1/2 inches in diameter. While inspecting the drain hose, check the recirculation hose as well.

When checking for blockages, disconnect the drain hose from the pump, pinch the wire clamp with pliers and slide it up the hose. Place a shallow pan beneath the pump to catch any spillage. Remove the hose from the pump; wiggling the hose may help to loosen it.

Check the hose and nipple to the pump for any debris. The only way to be certain the drain hose is completely clear is to disconnect it from the sink and run water through (such as spraying a garden hose through it at full pressure). Disconnect the recirculation hose and check it in the same way.

Reconnect the hoses and replace the clamps. Replace the lower panel and restore electricity to the dishwasher. If there are no obstructions found or debris, this will confirm a damaged pump and, it should be replaced.


NOTE(((Your model is equipped with a Drain valve(solenoid) i recommend testing this as well before swamping out the pump)))

The drain valve is typically near the motor although it can be located elsewhere. Look for a water hose running from the motor or underside of the tub. The hose should lead to the drain valve. The valve consists of the the gate arm mechanism and a solenoid (also called a coil). The gate arm allows the water to flow out of the dishwasher's tub through the drain valve. You should be able to move the gate arm up and down easily and smoothly. The gate arm also has two springs attached to it. If either of the springs is missing or damaged, they should be replaced.

The gate arm mechanism is engaged by the drain valve solenoid. The solenoid is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the solenoid before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connector off of the solenoid's terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Test the solenoid for resistance using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should change from a reading of infinity to roughly 40 ohms when the probes touch the terminals. If the reading is infinity or substantially different from 40 ohms, the solenoid should be replaced asap.

    If you are positive that there are no blockages and your inspection of the entire drainage assembly and pump is ok, this will be a defective drain solenoid.

My new dishwasher leaks water on the floor about an hour after it is completely finished with the cycle


Make sure the drain hose connected to your garbage disposal is connected well. Also, the hose should loop up near the sink (counter top) before it loops back down about 3 inches below the drain connection on the garbage disposal (or sink drain pipe if you don't have a disposal). This effectively makes a drain trap to avoid any smell from the dishwasher.

Also make sure the door is closed properly and there is no packaging material on the door.

hi just try this Is the door open or unlatched?
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched.
Was the selected cycle interrupted before completing?
The Clean light will come on when the cycle is complete. Wait until the Clean light comes on before trying to manually drain dishwasher. Press Cancel/Drain to try and drain the standing water.
Is the water level just covering the pump module?
This is normal. A small amount of water will be seen in the bottom of the sump area at the base of the pump. This is to ensure that the pump seal does not dry out.
Is the dishwasher drain hose connected to a garbage disposal?
For many dishwashers, the drain hose is connected to the disposal and the knockout plug must be removed from the disposer inlet.
Is the drain system blocked?
Run the disposer to clear the drain system.
Do you have an air gap at your sink?
Check to see if the air gap is blocked by foreign material. To clean the drain air gap, follow the cleaning instructions provided by the manufacturer. With most types, you lift off the chrome cover, unscrew the plastic cap, and then check for any soil buildup. Clean if necessary.
Is there a loop in the drain hose less than 20" (50.8 cm) above the floor?
Make sure the drain hose is looped up so that it touches the underside of the counter before connecting to the sink drain or disposer.
Is there a kink in the drain hose?
Replace a kinked drain hose.
Did you reuse an existing drain hose?
Make sure to use the new drain hose that came with the dishwasher.
Is the sink drain clogged?
If the sink is not draining well, a plumber may need to be contacted. Most dishwashers connect to the sink drain. If the sink drain is clogged, the dishwasher can't pump out water.
Is the drain hose too long?
If the supplied drain hose was replaced with a longer one it must be shorter than 12' (3.7m).

2 weeks ago, I had a plumber come and put in a new garbage diposer and since then somewhat old/dirty water seems to be sitting at the bottom after all cycles are done. I calle dhim back and he says that...


There is a breakaway stub in the garbage disposal's dishwasher hose port, it needs to be removed before connecting the dishwasher drain hose when installing the disposal.
Disconnect the dishwasher drain hose at the disposal, get a screwdriver and, insert in the disposal's dishwasher drain port and tap on it with hammer until it breaks off. Then remove that stub from the sink side.

Once my dishwasher completed the cycle there is no water but after two or three days the bottom of the dishwasher fills with the dirty water. what could be the reason? I have garbage disposal and one pipe...


You must have your dishwasher connected directly to the garbage disposal and not through an air gap. What is happening is when you disposal fills with water it is siphoning through the drain hose back to the dishwasher. If you sink has a spare hole on the deck install air gap and run dishwasher drain through air gap first. Otherwise make sure you run Garbage disposal often so that water does not get slowed and build up inside.

My kemore dishwasher is holding water after the cycle is over.


Usually it is due to poor draining ie. garbage disposal clogging etc... If it connected to the garbage disposal get a bucket, disconnect drain hose and run rinse and hold drain line over bucket to see if it is draining at all. It should drain completely if it is showing it is trying to drain it is a blockage in the pump underneath. but try the hose first and go from there.

My dishwasher does not completely drain after a wash. what do i do?


  1. Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit
  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 plug at connection.
  7. Check pump impeller for damage.
  8. Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off

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.

Standing Water in Dishwaaser


Since water doesn't drain out ,it could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Good luck!

Dishwasher will not drain


I hav an Americana / GE dishwasher, only one and a half years old. the dishwasher is not draining. When I turn the selection knob on the front to wash, is begins filling with water again. But, the cycle is not actually working. I removed the drain hose from the disposal unit and allowed the really really nasty collection of water to drain out. I have a feeling that the hose connection to the washer is clogged. Is this possible. If so, should I remove the hose from the connection at the dishwasher and clean the hose or could it be something else.

Thank you,
