There is a solenoid valve located near the motor which should activate to either drain or to spray. These often get jammed up with food particles. Locate it and take it apart. Clean out what ails it and put it back in service.

Water is not spraying around and soapy water is in bottom after putting no soap for past five starts


You have an oversud problem and pump is cavitating due to too much soap. best and quickest way is to remedy is use 1 cup liquid fabric softener and let dish washer run thru complete cycle wit heat dry in off position.The fabric softener will break down the soap and remedy the problem. Hope this helps.

After cycle is complete my dishwasher doesn't fully drain water.


If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

Also, There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

**Water temperature Note***

To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

Concerning the Film(slimy looking substance).

This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there, Try Dishwasher Magic.

Water does not drain from GE dishwasher.


Remove the drain hose from under the sink to verify that there is no clog. If the dishwasher runs in the "cleaning" cycle, but won't drain, you either have a clog or a bad solenoid. All the solenoid does is opens a little door to change from cleaning cycle to drain cycle. This part is VERY EASY to change. Definitely a project for DIY. The part runs around $60 from a parts place. Check ebay if you do not need it immediately and you can save abt $30.

No water coming into dishwasher Model# GSD3200G00WW


I have the same model and had this issue twice in four years. What causes this is a water level switch inside the dishwasher, left at the bottom, almost touching the door. The switch has a cover that looks like a cup upside down. Remove that cover and give a perfect, thorough cleaning in and around the switch (including inside the cover) to make it look new again. The switch should start working freely again. You don't need to buy new parts to replace anything.

GE Nautilus Dishwasher Problem


check water level is ok. check its heating. open door when in operation and check if spray arms are rotating. if not, take them out, run water into centre hole and check water comes out of jets. note the spray arms only rotate with water coming out of angled jets at end
