Question about GE Dishwashers
The main pump motor may not be working. If you cant hear it running, it may be jammed up or burnt out. If you can hear a loud humming noise, its possible its only jammed. You will have to remove the pump and see if any foreign matter has stuck in the pump impellor. If the pump is running, check the small outlet holes in the spray arms, they may be blocked.

You probably have a restricted water inlet valve. It is not allowing the proper rate of flow for the allotted time, therefore not giving enough water to create the proper velocity to reach the top rack.

It sounds like it may be stuck between cycle steps.(this sometimes happens if the washer is open during a cycle)Try and run it through one full wash cycle as it is.Then check to see if the soap door will close.If not,the lack may be broken

I have a Ge Potscrubber 1200. Fairly new I guess as I bought it with the house that I purchased 1 1/2 years ago. Sometimes it drains and sometimes it does not. Today there was two inches of water! About to remove the bottom panel. Sounds like the drain valve it blocked but not sure. Any thoughts?

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.
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.
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.
Replace the motor if defective.
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).
