Potscrubber 900 Dishwasher won't drain

My GE Potscrubber 900 (model # GSD900D-03) will not drain .. this was in my house when I moved in and has worked fine (other than it's really noisy) until now. I disconnected the drain hose and it's not clogged .. what else can I check? Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

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.

3. Pump
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.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

GE Potscrubber 900 just runs and runs, dial just sits there


Hello Debbe,

Does the dishwasher fill with water, or is full and fails to drain?
Can you provide additional detail so that we may accurately troubleshoot? Also include the complete model number. It should be etched or stamped on a plate inside the door, or elsewhere on the washer.

Thank you!

GE MODEL GSD900D ISN'T PUMPING OUT THE WATER. IS THERE A RESET BUTTON?


There is no reset button. The most common problems are drain hose blocked (new or plugged disposal?), or the pump/motor assembly has been leaking. Is the motor turning? GE motors will turn from the time you turn it on until dry cycle. Remove the lower panels and observe the drain solonoid on the left of the motor. The silver plunger should go down when in drain cycle. Look for any corrosion meaning you have had a leak. If so, it is probably time for a new dishwasher. The newer dishwashers are much quieter, clean better, and use less energy. The best price on a new pump assembly is around $120 plus shipping.

Hope this helps,
Ken

Water not coming into dishwasher


Without knowing the model number of your GE dishwasher, but some dishwashers don't notice when the float / float switch is stuck. That could cause the dish washer to move through all the cycles but never have water flow into the dishwasher. That would be the first place I would look. But please post back here with what you find (plus the model number of your dishwasher) before ou rate me level of helpfulness, OK?
