Hi,

I have a 6 year old GE Nautilus Powerscrub Quiet Power 1 dishwasher. A few weeks ago it stopped draining properly after a regular cycle. It is about 6 years old, but used very little. I removed it and checked all lines, opened both motors, etc. Everything looked okay.

I connected both motors to an external 120 V power supply and they spun.

I checked all drain lines and they were clear. I checked the sink connection to make sure it is okay too.

I checked the check valve on the drain line, and inspected the piston and nut check valve at the back of the dishwasher. It looks in good condition.

On a rinse cycle it drains properly. The first run through on the regular cycle it drains, but later in the cycle the drain motor hums / whirs / grinds but no water comes out to the sink. If I try a rinse / reset cycle immediately after the main cycle it hums but does not drain. If I try a rinse / reset cycle the next day (when motor is cool), it drains out.

Does this sound like the drain motor is going? I can see the main motor when it goes since the fan blades are exposed. The drain motor I can only hear and do not know if it is rotating during a cycle (only when I remove it and connect to an external power supply). Could it be a check valve?

How does a drain pump typically fail? All at once or only when hot?

Thanks!

Hi, Any thoughts?

Is it possible the drain pump works properly at the start of the cycle (I see it draining into the sink pipe after the first part of the wash cycle), but the later two drains it hums but no water comes out. Is this more likely the pump, piston nut valve (which looks okay), or something else?
