We just moved into a house that has a G865 dishwasher. It worked for the first few days we were here and then our drains backed up and the dishwasher would not drain. A plumber had to come in to roto the drains and since then the dishwasher won't work. When we turn it on it sounds like it is trying to drain, but there is no water in it. The cycle won't start...it just keeps trying to drain. Is there anything we can try before we call to have it serviced?
Your problem is a water leak. There are a couple of rubber seals that are required to correct the problem.. When the seal leaks it accumulates in a tray in the bottom where a sensor turns on the pump when water is present. If you remove the lower access panel and reach in you should see the accumulated water. I had a repair tech repair mine.

i have the same problem....i would think the inlet valve is leaking....that would be the mechanism where the water supply is attached to the dishwasher.......did you get yours fixed? can you help please?
If your Dishwasher is not Draining check the following
On some dishwashers that have a filter (screen) along the back wall of the tub have a piston valve. The piston valve commonly causes dishwashers not to pump out. if your dishwasher does have a filter, remove it. Now remove the piston valve located in the center behind the filter. Now to check the piston valve, press up on the spring. Once done the piston should stop up the hole in the top of the valve. When a piston valve, is bad the piston dissolves to the point that it can no longer stop up the hole, in this case replace it.
Another common problem on some dishwashers that will cause it not to drain properly is the drain solenoid. To check this, first disconnect power from dishwasher then remove the bottom panel of dishwasher. Once off, you should see the drain solenoid attached to the main pump then reach under the dishwasher and push down on the solenoid. If it will not move down it is bad and needs replacing. If it will push, down most of the time it is good but not always so follow these steps as well. Reconnect power to dishwasher, now start the dishwasher in to a cycle. If you have a mechanical timer turn it slowly until the solenoid energizes. If you turn the timer all the way around and the solenoid never energizes replace the solenoid. If you have an electronic control, start the dishwasher and wait a few minutes then push start/reset then the drain solenoid should energizes, if not replace the solenoid. At times the timer will cause this part to go bad especially if its melted or frozen down. So you may have to replace timeras well.
If your dishwasher is not draining properly, the check valve may be your problem. The check valve will be on some dishwashers with both a separate drain pump or drain valve (note if you do not have both you will not have a check valve). The check valve will be located where the black hose connects to the drain pump. To access the check valve, you must first remove the water from the dishwasher. A Wet-Vac works well. After the water is out, disconnect power to dishwasher. Now remove the dishwasher from under the cabinet. Now remove the black hose (even though you removed the water you will still have water in the pump so be ready).Once off you should see the check valve. It's the little red rubber flap. If it is torn off, the flap may have gone down the drain but you still should see the red ring left behind, in this case replace the valve. Sometimes the check valve will swell up and hang in the pump, if so replace it.
If your dishwasher is not draining properly, the drain pump may be your problem. As stated before, not all dishwashers will have a drain pump. To check this, First check to see if it is getting power. You should have 120 volts when the dishwasher is put into a drain cycle. If you have power and the pump does not run remove the pump and check for obstructions if none found replace the pump.
If your dishwasher is not draining properly, the drain hose may be stopped up. To check, remove all the water from tub. A Wet-Vac works well for this. After the water is gone remove the drain hose (even though you removed the water you will still have water in the pump so be ready) from the house plumbing and the dishwasher. Check for obstructions and remove. If you just installed a new garbage disposal check that the metal knockout was removed. Check the air gap if this is not right your dishwasher will siphon water back into it.Use the VOM .God bless you
Ours did the same....last week. Would not work for a few days...in the end i took the spinning rotor arms off that spray the water. The nozzles looked blocked ...used tootbrush to clear nozzles. Put arms back on and it is now working. Wife thinks we have had the problem before...(just going thru cycle) but it cleared itself.
Not impressed by the dishwasher but the oven & hob are working ok. Hope this helps.
Check the very bottom tray under the machine. Remove the lower front cover, 2 screws, and you'll find a tray full of water. A Turkey Baster will **** most of it out, towel the rest.
Once dry, the machine will operate through all cycles, most likely.
This is a common problem with this model. I have to do this about once a year.
