Question about GE Dishwashers

Open Question

I have a GE GSC3500DWW that does not drain at the end of the cycle, HOWEVER, does drain manually. I have looked at all the videos that talk about this subject, but they all relate to NOT DRAINING and point to obstruction in the impeller, etc. My take would be a problem with the relay. Has anyone encountered this issue? Thanks

SOURCE: WATER IS NOT DRAINING

Most likely the pump has failed or is blocked or jammed. Coins and buttons become trapped in the impeller. Suggest you check the pump drain inspection point - there is always one somewhere at the bottom of the machine. See if you can rotate the pump motor - ISOLATE THE POWER FIRST!

SOURCE: GE Dishwasher is not draining water

GE Prifile dishwashers have a valve called a "Piston" and an "O" -Ring under the screen that become degraded over time. The part is around $10 and it takes about an hour to do the repair. You can do this yourself if you are handy and have some simple tools. You can go to the GE website and get a free owners manual.

SOURCE: Whirlpool LSR7133KQ0 no pumpout, rinse, or spin.

NO...the problem you are describing are the typical symptoms of a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch shuts the washer off when you open the lid while the drum is spinning. This is a safety feature to prevent injury from moving parts if you decide to add a garment or stick your hands in the tub for some reason while it is in operation. On some model Whirpool's the washer WILL work initially for the wash cycle, then stop when it gets to the rinse cycle. I would recommend you check your lid switch to make it is not loose or broken. Your washer is also equipped with a lid strike (a small plastic piece on the lid that activates the switch) make sure it is not broken off or missing. This will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch.

If you require a replacement switch, they can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com, or you can go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. The part number for the switch is 3949247. The lid strike (if required) is part number 358684. If you need instructions on how to replace the lid switch, you can use this link if you like:

I don't know how savvy you are, so I thought I would add the instructions just in case. I hope you find all this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultrawash QuietGuard 3 Dishwasher not draining or rinsing

Not draining may either need new drain motor. or something is blocking the drain pipe.

Spots on dishes means you are using to much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent.

Your owners manuel should tell you what type to use.

My GE HE top load washer quit draining & spinning. I*t went through a wash cycle just fine. It drained & spun for that, but at the end of the rinse cycle it wouldn't. I even tried to put it on


WE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. ONLY OURS WOULDN'T WORK ON THE "WHITES" CYCLE BUT WOULD WORK ON THE OTHERS. BUT IT WAS JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THEY WOULD ALL GO & THE REPAIRS WOULD BE $$$. YOU WILL EITHER NEED A REPAIRMAN & YOU'RE LOOKING AT A MINIMUM OF $200........IF YOU'RE LUCKY. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR & GET THE G.E. MODEL #GTWN2800DWW AT HOME DEPOT. LOOK AT IT IN THE STORE BUT BUY IT ON LINE (AS THERE MAY BE A $50 DISCOUNT). THIS WASHER IS WHAT YOU WANT. YOU WON'T BE SORRY.

Dishwasher won't drain at the end of the cycle


Whenever an appliance does operate its pumps/valves heaters correctly for part of a cycle then doesnt at another point, it is a problem with the controller of the sequence in the cycle.. On older devices this can be a rotating knob that slowly runs to end of cycle triggering events as it turns, by tripping blade switches near the rotating item. On these the switch trigger points can be inspected and sometimes repaired. On newer items the cycle is controlled electronically, and you have to replace the whole control unit, which is usually a large expensive part that includes the display and all buttons. Try getting a used control unit from Ebay and swapping it out, or consider replacing the whole appliance.

Profile dishwasher not draining at end of cycle.


It would have helped if you provided the model no.

Check this GE website for possible causes. If you do not have the user manual then you can also download it from here, But you will need the model number. (should be etched on the body of the dishwasher)

Manual claims machine has ability to spin out water but there are no options on the control panel


There are different models withing this line by GE. There is one model that have a "Drain & Spin" cycle on the main cycle selection knob, but on the higher end models, you'll need to use the "Rinse & Spin" cycle.

This will add some water to the washer, but the basic cycle will give items a quick rinse and spin.

If you're trying to use just a spin cycle to wring out towels, etc. and you don't have the "Drain & Spin" cycle, (which you shouldn't based on your higher end model #), just use the "Rinse & Spin" cycle and it'll do a nice job of getting out a lot of moisture from your clothes, towels, etc.

I have this same washer in my own home and refreshed my memory by reading my manual (again) to see that this is what you need to do, to spin out stuff.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Unit not draining all the water after cycle


There appear to be some prior posts on this same issue with this model. I could not find any service manual. Prior posts talk about making sure the whole drain system is clear (including the air gap)...and about some flapper valves going bad that prevent backflow from the drain system.

We have a GE front loading washing machine model GCVH626OHWW that won't complete a full wash cycle. It normally stops part way through whatever cycle that we put it on and we have to hit the start button...


I would check to be sure your drain hose is hooked up correctly (not twisted/kinked or too far down your laundry drain) and the drain is not clogged or slow. Could also be a dirty pump filter on the washer. Check out the Troubleshooting Tips in the GCVH6260 manual- http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-90315-2.pdf

GE has instructions and a video for cleaning the pump filter-

Dishwasher doesn't drain


Greg, if the model number ends in GO1, your dishwasher has a piston nut assy. thats problably giving you the grief. If this assy. goes bad you will have water left in the tub at the end of the wash. A common GE problem. It's located under the filter screen in the back and just unscrews out. Part number is wd24x199. It's an easy fix. Look up the part on the net to get an idea of what it looks like. Catriver..post back.
