I have a GE dishwasher QuietPower III. It does not drain completely after a normal cycle of washing. If I let it run again with RINSE ONLY cycle, then there is no water left at bottom. I have checked hoses. there is no clogging. Any advises are appreciapted.

Thanks,

Chao

One of the appliance gurus will probably respond....but this could be normal. From what I've read, water is left to keep seals from drying out.

I've heard that a d/w is one of the few appliances that benefits from being run MORE, not LESS...because you don't want seals, gaskets, etc. to dry out.

Hi,

No model# posted.

A copy:

Quick tips: Not draining the water out....

Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit.

Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.

Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause. ( not all dishwashers )

Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise

If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.

Check pump impeller for damage.

Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.

Some GE specific helps....
