Is your ge dishwasher not emptying properly? If not, it may not be cleaning the dishes properly, not to mention a foul smell. It is normal for a little water to remain at the bottom of the washtub but if more than 2 cups remain or there is water spillage through the dishwasher’s door, you need to troubleshoot the dishwasher to correct the problem.
There are several factors that can prevent the dishwasher from draining including an improperly installed garbage disposal, a clogged sink drain, an improperly installed drain or an obstructed air gap. The following ge not draining repair guide will help you repair the dishwasher.
What you will need
· A screwdriver
· Wire clothes hanger
· Tape measure
· Liquid drain cleaner
· A half inch woo
· I inch single hole pipe clamp
Begin with switching off the circuit breaker that is dedicated to the GE dishwasher. The dishwasher connects to either a 15 or 20 single pole breaker. Try to start a wash cycle to make sure that you have turned off the correct breaker.
Now open the dishwasher door slid the lower rack to expose the bottom of the wash tub.
Check for any debris such as papers, food particles or plastics at the bottom of the washtub and at the back of the dishwasher that may be blocking the drain.
· Correcting an improperly installed garbage disposal
An improperly installed garage disposal can make a gee dishwasher not to drain. To correct this, disconnect the garbage disposal from the electrical outlet on the wall under the sink. Using a screwdriver, loosen the hose clamp that holds drain hose to the disposal. Pull the hose to access the connections.
The connection of the garbage disposal drain hose has a removable plastic plug. Insert the screwdriver into the drain connection on the disposal, if the installer did not remove a plug, the screwdriver will hit an obstacle. Leave the screwdriver in the position and use a hammer to tap it in order to remove the plug. Remove the plug from the disposal before reconnecting the dishwasher drain hose.
· Correcting a clogged sink drain
Clogged drain lines is another cause of the ge dishwasher not emptying. If this is the case, pour liquid drain cleaner through the sink drain lines following the directions outlined on the cleaner. A clogged sink drain will prevent the dishwasher’s waste water from draining.

Check under the sink to make sure that there are no twists in the drain line. If there are, loosen the hose clamp holding the garbage disposal or the sink drain using a screwdriver and pull it to straighten it then reconnect it.
· Checking for air gaps
Check for any air gaps at the back edge of the sink. Using your hands, grab the air gap cover and pull it to expose the diverter. Unscrew the diverter off the top of the air gap and check inside the air gap for any obstacles. Remove any obstacles then replace the diverter and slide the air gap cover back to position.
· An Improperly installed drain line
If there is no air gap, examine the dishwasher’s drain line under the sink. If the drain line does not pass through a clamp which is usually connected under the countertop, you should install one to raise the drain line. Measure the distance from under the counter to the kitchen floor to ensure that the counter top height is about 32 inches then insert the drain hose into a 1 inch clamp. The clamp should be attached under the countertop with a half inch wood screw taking care not to bend the drain hose anywhere between the sink drain and the dishwasher.
If water is remaining at the base of the dishwasher, check the accompanying things to check whether it amends the issue. To limit the likelihood of electric stun, unplug this apparatus from the power supply before endeavoring any support or cleaning. Some water, generally one to two glasses, staying at the base of the tub is typical.

Before you begin chipping away at your dishwasher, check where the deplete associates with your sink. Frequently this obstructs, and you can get it out with a screwdriver.

The initial four areas apply just to GE dishwashers. On the off chance that you have a Whirlpool dishwasher or some other brand skip to the last segment. Note that none of the initial four sections I specified beneath are on all GE dishwashers, however, no less than one will be on most and some have every one of the four.
On GE dishwashers that have a channel (screen) along the back mass of the tub have a bottle valve. The cylinder valve causes dishwashers not to draw out. Note that some GE dishwashers don't have a channel and this area does not have any significant bearing to these dishwashers. Be that as it may, if your dishwasher has a channel, evacuate it. Presently expel the cylinder valve situated in the middle of the canal. Directly to check the cylinder valve, press up on the spring. Once done the cylinder should stop up the gap in the highest point of the valve. At the point when a cylinder valve, is terrible the bottle breaks down to the point that it can never again stop up the gap, for this situation supplant it. If not, reinstall it and proceed onward to the following area.
On GE dishwashers, a typical issue that will cause it not to consume legitimately is the deplete solenoid. To check this, first separate power from dishwasher at that point expel the base board of dishwasher.
Once off, you should see the deplete solenoid connected to the fundamental direct at that point reach under the dishwasher and push down on the solenoid.

Reconnect energy to the dishwasher, now begin the dishwasher into a cycle. If you have a mechanical clock turn it gradually until the point when the solenoid invigorates. On the off chance that you turn the clock the distance around and the solenoid never empowers supplant the solenoid. If you have an electronic control, begin the dishwasher and hold up a couple of minutes at that point push start/reset then the deplete solenoid ought to invigorate, if not supplant the solenoid. On occasion, the clock will make this part turn sour particularly if it's liquefied or solidified down.
On the off chance that your GE dishwasher is not draining legitimately, the check valve might be your concern. The check valve will be on GE dishwashers with both a different deplete pump, and a deplete solenoid (note if you don't have both you won't have a check valve). The check valve will be found where the dark hose interfaces with the deplete pump. To get to the check valve, you should first expel the water from the dishwasher. Wet-Vac functions admirably for this, a turkey baster works alright or a little glass will carry out the employment. After the water is out, separate energy to the dishwasher. Presently expel the dishwasher from under the cupboard.
Indeed I know it's a torment however you will never do this with it under the bureau. Currently, discharge the dark horse (despite the fact that you expelled the water you will even now have water in the pump so be ready).Once off you should see the check valve. It's the little red elastic fold. If it is removed, the fold may have gone down the deplete yet regardless you should see the red ring deserted, for this situation supplant the valve. Some of the time the check valve will swell up and hang in the pump if so remove it. If the valve looks alright, read the following segment before you reinstall your dishwasher.

If your GE dishwasher is not draining appropriately, the deplete pump might be your concern. As expressed some time recently, not all GE dishwashers will have a drain pump, quite recently some more up to date ones.

Just when you evacuate the dark hose peer inside the pump.
Before checking the DRAIN hose verifies whether it is clogged at the sink as depicted at the highest point of this page.
If your dishwasher is not draining appropriately, the delete tube might be halted up. This is not normal however I keep running into it now and again. To check, expel all the water from the tub. Wet-Vac functions admirably for this, a turkey baster works alright, or a little container will carry out the employment.
After the water is gone, evacuate the deplete hose (despite the fact that you expelled the water you will, in any case, have water in the pump so be prepared) from the house plumbing and the dishwasher. Take it outside to your water hose. From that point, you ought to have the capacity to get it out. Reinstall it and your dishwasher is settled.
