Help. My GE Nautilus won't drain at all (not even partially) and after all the troubleshooting I still can't get it to drain. Here are the steps that I have already done:

I first removed the sump filter inside the machine and did not notice any material that caused any obstructions. I then checked for a blocked drain pipe by unscrewing it at the drain point under the sink and found nothing there. Next I removed the kick plate and checked that the Selenoid underneath would pull down when the machine would go into the drain phase. I even removed the drain pipe at the machine to make sure there was not a plug at that end with which there was not. I also checked the Piston and Nut which is located at the rear of the unit and has to be unscrewed. That was also ok.

I can't think of anything else. Am I missing something? Any help is appreciated.

Did you check voltage at the drain pump after hitting cancel/drain?

Hey Humboldt I ordered a new drain Selenoid so I hope that clears it up before checking the voltage on the old one. Thanks for the reply.

Hey Humboldt what would be a good voltage read on the Selenoid if its running in good? Only reason I ask is if I run into this problem again I'd like to know if the Selenoid is running good and then I can focus on some other problem. Again thanks for the replies.
