Thank You BadFish!!!! I've been searching and trying for what seems like a week - you're the first person who made simple instructions of disassembling this thing. I couldn't believe the amount of debris I found in there - no wonder it wouldn't drain. Glass, plastic, safety seal from a honey bottle, popsicle plastic (thanks kids). It's running now! Thanks Again! You're kind of a rockstar.

By running it with all that taken apart if something was in there it may have passed through, so you might be good....By removing the lower spray arm you create a pressure difference, that's how I can tell if something is in the sump or elsewhere. If it drains with the spray arm off, it is in the sump...

As far as general maintenance, as long as your not putting food like lettuce or big chunks of stuff in the washer you really wont have a problem.
-I know this is an old post, but it took me awhile to find it and it saved me either a costly repair or an unnecessary purchase of a new dishwasher. It took some force, but pulling the sump filter out and cleaning around the sump drain worked for me. Apparently we washed a plastic cup with a sticker on it (UPC code) and that was the root cause of our problems.

Default GE drain problem

The help was right on.Mine finally got going when I took out the back flow check valve flap at the base and forced hot water back in through the drain hose with the filter out.
Thanks!

I have a simaler problem. In my case the dishwasher sounds like it is runing? But drying light is flashing and it is beeping?

Any Help would be appreciated.

Default GE Profile dishwasher won't drain completely

This is great advice and help. I cleaned out my dishwasher drain and it is working like new. I have been having problem with glassware and silverware not completely cleaned. The drain filter was almost 100% cloaked. It is not easy to remove for routine cleaning. But I am going to do it every six months. I took some pictures to show how to remove the filter.

I'm in the middle of canning and my dishwasher stopped draining. Your directions worked great and saved me from getting a new dishwasher!

I had the same problem. I know this an older thread, but it works. I took my dishwasher apart as instructed and cleaned out the sump pump area. Lots of gunk. Now my dishwasher drains as it should. FYI my GE Profile is 9 years old, and I have never taken it, or any dishwasher apart in my life. Thanks.
