Our GE Triton XL Dishwasher (model GSD6960J01SS) will not drain. We received it used, My husband (carpenter, mechanic, jack of all trades) installed it himself. He has now taken it out, taken everything inside apart, and put it back together several times to get it to work, but so far with no luck.
we've read many other posts, but none seem to answer our specific problem.
When we run a normal cycle (after removing all water manually) it will seemingly run through everything ok, but when it is finished and we open the door there is still water sitting in the bottom.
This is what we've tried so far:
*this model has no air gap, and we've tried draining it with the drain hose low AND high (over 32") with no results
*the disposal drain is open as it should be (our old dishwasher drained through it just fine)
*the drain hose is not clogged, nor is anything else (he has taken it all apart and put it back together several times)
*the rubber gasket in the check valve seems to be good too
*the pump seems to run ok when we start the dishwasher, then stop it we can hear the pump come on, but it doesn't stay on and nothing drains out
We really don't know what else to try - it seems like it would be a good dishwasher if we could just figure out why it's not draining - everything else works.
Any suggestions would be welcome - please help.
