Re: GE DISHWASHER GSD5930
Ron, on these GE's there is a piston and nut assy. This is located under the filter screen in the back part of the dishwasher. It's a simple mechanism that screws out. When these do not seal properly they will leave water on the bottom of the dishwasher. I seen this plenty of time and believe it might be your case. Part number for the assy. is wd24x220. It's not a hard fix...good luck.

if it has water in it the door won't open,you can try unplugging it or flip the breaker,wait a few minutes and then put power to it and see if the door will open,if not pull the drain hose out of the stand pipe or sink,get it as close to the ground as you can and with a shop vac suck the water out through the drain hose,or you can unplug the machine remove the top panel and on the bottom of the door switch there's a round ring,you pull it down to manually open the door.go here to see. https://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Door-Lock/WP8182634/1094190
you see the round ring on the bottom grab it and pull it down and that will release the door,if it's not drainiing you'll have to take it apart and get to the pump,remove the hoses and see if anything is stuck in the pump or hoses,also you can remove the plastic hose that goes to the pressure switch and blow through it to see if soap is blocking the opening where it connects to the tub.blowing down into it will hopefully open it up if it's blocked if not remove it and clean out where it connects to tub or stuff in hose with a paper clip.but puling down on door switch will manually open the door.
If the leak is from the bottom of the front door than it is most likely the door seal. If the leak is from beneath the unit and appearing to leak out from the front there are many sources for the water.
Check the seal around the door. It may have some residue that has collected prohibiting the seal. The water in the machine actually sits in a tub. The seal on the door prohibits the water leaking as the spray arm rotates.
To test the door seal start the cycle and stop the unit as soon as the machine begins the spray cycle. Open the door and observe that the tub is full but still below the edge. Dry the seal around the door. Place colored paper towels or cloth beneath the door as close to the door seal as possible, Continue with the cycle and observe for water leaks. Stop allow the unit to sit a few seconds open door and observe the seal. You are looking for the location that it is leaking.
If you can confirm that the seal is leaking you can purchase replacement seals, On some models they can be easily replaced.
In my experience I have not seen a filter in the return line. If there is a blocked return hose the unit would not leak. The tub would remain filled after the cycle. There is an overflow switch that prohibits the tub from overfilling if the tub has not emptied between cycles.
Clean out the small holes in the gray door gasket (at the bottom) to allow water to drain back into tub. Open access door at bottom left on front of machine, use small hose to drain remaining water from machine, remove and clean out filter there. Re-install. Run washer on the tub clean cycle if you have that cycle, or if not, use the longest, hottest cycle you can, but make sure to use a commercial washer cleaner like Affresh, Washer Magic, Whirlaway hot tub cleaner, etc., with no clothes in the washer. After cleaning tub, make sure you only use one tablespoon of HE detergent per cycle, and only one teaspoon of fabric softener per cycle if you use softener.
susds error is a an fault error ....the machine has detected excessive tub pressure could be from not using "HE Soap ....if your are good but you might be using to much.... whens the last clean cycle you have ran to clean excess inner tub buildup on your washer .....
1 #drain all water out of filter sump behind lower front axcess panel make sure washer is unpluged

5# plug washer back in now lets run a clean cycle or any cycle that usues hot water ....
6# if unit suds code again this could happen a few times we need to flush out the buildup you may have to repeat steps 1-6 a couple of times....
Remove the filter from the lower front section of the wash tub and clean it out. Then start a wash cycle with no dishes and no soap. Once the water fills and starts washing,open the door and pour 1 quart of white vinegar in the wash tub. Close the door to resume the wash cycle. Let the machine run a complete cycle to the end to help clean out the water ports.
If there is a lot of water sitting inside the applicance, it's possible that the high water float switch has been activated and is preventing the dishwasher from running. Open the door, remove the bottom rack, dip as much water out of the bottom as possible with a shallow ladle or even tupperware container. When that is accomplished, shut the door and try to run a drain cycle. If the unit won't start, you may have to remove more water. You don't have to have the rack in place to run the drain cycle.
remove the bottom panel below tha door. youll see the drain pump in the center,fronr of washer. there is a black hose going from the pump to the bottom of the tub. remove that hose. at the end of the hose there is a plastic ball that is supposed to seal the end of the hose. more than likely there is lint build up on the ball or around where the ball seal. clean the ball and the hose and reinstall. you should be fine after that
If your washer functions when the door is shut it cannot be a door problem. The likely thing here is you may have a drain problem....your drain oulet filter (or out pump) could be blocked. This requires cleaning; when the washer goes thru all the functions except spin it is most likely your drain is clogged. Aft u have cleaned the filter & pump check by a small spin. Before you attempt, wall socket off & keep bucket handy to collect water.
