    no it doesnt drain at all and its one of those roll around dishwashers that arent built into anything and no garbage disposal either

    we think its the pump that went out so we are trying to get that replaced

    Hopefully that will do it.

For starters does it drain at all?If the drain line is connected to the sink drain and you have a garbage disposal,the drain hose could be plugged up.

I have a GE 1200 Potscrubber portable dishwasher it was running good until it started to drain then water started coming out the bottom is there a way to fix this? Please help me.


You can take the unit and lay it down. There will be some water leakage. You can then see the hoses and connections. Sounds like the drain hose is either cracked or loose.

Is water suppose to stay in the sump pump of a ge potscrubber dishwasher. The water drains except in the very bottom where I guess the pump is. There is lots of mildew and I have lots of grit on my...


Yes water does stay in the sump all the time. This is normal.

Try running a cycle with a cup of Vinegar or Baking Soda in the dishwasher.

Also check to make sure that your drain line (under the sink) is higher than the sink drain and not allowing some sink drain seepage back into the dishwasher.

Sink dishwater intrusion


Hello- Find drain hose from dishwasher under sink. Should have gooseneck ~ in hose run to keep water from getting back into dwshr. Does full sink drained all at once push water into tub? Sometimes stuff not disposalled yet blocks drainage. Older motors can tend to become weak with age, not pumping as much water out of tub as it used to.Anyway- Hope this helps- ED

Potscrubber 900 Dishwasher won't drain


HI. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

GE 720 Potscrubber I started with the water puddling in bottom now it progressed to leaking on the floor. I had a repair guy come to my home yesterday and he says a broken seal and my total cost to replace seal and labor is $165 plus tax.
What is the life expectancy? He did not sound too promising about the future of my dishwasher and said he is certain there will be another repair need shortly something related to the water saturating an area underneath the dishwasher?
He reccomended I call Sears and replace with a Whirlpool product. He claimed he put his kids thru college repairing GE products. My husband wants to repair and I dont because of fear of spending more money!
