Default GE dishwasher won't drain, not plugged up
Model Number: GSD2000J01WW   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The dishwasher has been working ok for 5 years, but now it stops when it is time to drain. The motor works for wash and rinse cycle, then nothing. The timer continues and the hose is not plugged up. I was able to remove some plastic debris from around the impeller shaft, but that didn't help.

Is it the discharge valve solonoid that is bad?

Thanks for your help,
Bonnie

Is it the discharge valve solonoid that is bad?
Yes it could be. Remove the kick plate so you can see the wash/drain solenoid (item 497 in Section 3).
Check that the solenoid plunger will go down into the drain position manually.
See if the plunger is pulled down when it is supposed to be draining.

The way it works is the solenoid is activated for a couple seconds at the start of the drain cycle.
This then moves the wash/drain flapper valve to the drain position.
The water pressure then holds it there till the unit is empty (no water pressure).
Then the springs pull it back to the wash position.

Sometimes the timer contacts running the solenoid can stick so the solenoid gets power for too long and overheats. This then melts the plastic on the solenoid and screws it up.

If the solenoid works OK manually but does not pull the plunger down monitor the voltage across the solenoid winding at the start of a drain cycle. You should see 120 volts for a couple seconds.
