Question about GE Dishwashers
First if you have a disposal, make sure that it is working since many dishwashers
are connected to the disposal and will not drain if it is not working.
Second, with power off to unit at the breaker box take off lower cover and check
the triangle shaped plastic arm that is connected to the shiny rod
It is the drain valve. If It does not move freely or you see black stuff on
the metal shaft then the drain solenoid has failed.
Remove the plug and "C" shaped clip and the two phillips head screws and slide
it toward you to remove. The plastic arm is under spring tension so you
may want to remove the spring first. Reverse procedure to assemble.
This should cover most models of GE/Kenmore/ Hotpoint.
Hope this helps.
