Question about GE Tritonr XL GSD6260JCC Dishwasher
I have the same dishwasher and encountered the same problem last year. What I had to do was call a plumber out. But all he did was clean out a plastic compartment in the bottom of the dishwasher then turned on the garbage disposal for a few minutes. There was some larger debris under the plastic compartment and the problem was solved. I am however now experiening a different problem w it. Good luck!

thank you for using fixya.
with regard to your issue, here is the possible cause. The check valve is worn and letting water back in the tub while it is draining there for not draining all the water out.
Can temporarily be repaired with a cork until i can get a new check valve.
You may also try to restart dishwasher with rinse only and as soon as it starts push reset and it will drain water out.
Going deeper into the appliance, the dishwasher has a rubber flapper style check valve located between the soil collection chamber and the drain line. These go bad and restrict the water from draining out. Also some models have a valve under screen in back called a piston valve if this has debris keeping it from opening and closing or is deteriorated you will need to change this also.Start washer let fill initiate pump out water should exit rapidy into drain if its slow check both items above
Hope this helps, if you have other question, please do not hesitate to let me know.

I had a similar problem with a GE GSD5811 model. The hoses were clear, and the auxiliary pump worked fine. It turns out that it was the "piston" assembly that had basically disintegrated over time. This part diverts water to the pump during the drain cycle.
To check it, remove the mesh filter at the rear of the inside of the machine, by carefully unclipping the heater element from the back of the machine and removing the 4 hex-head screws securing the filter panel.) Unscrew the piston assembly from the tub, and pull it out. If the sealing plunger has deteriorated or is jammed, replace it. The part number for the "piston and nut assembly" for my machine (and probably numerous others) is WD24X10018. It should cost anywhere between $10 and 16, depending on where you shop.
Another possibility is a bad drain solenoid. (This is what actually triggers the piston assembly during the drain cycles.)
