For many years GE had the old faithful sidewinder motor with solenoid flap. Now they go and screw that up too.I hate dishwashers. They are leaky,messy,nasty,and downright crappy to repair.

Hi All. I have checked all the things you mention here and on other sites. (Piston valve, drain pump, etc.). My unit only turns the drain pump on for about two seconds when it enters the drain cycle so it does not even start to pump water out. When in the F1 test mode, it will run the full 75 seconds and pumps out all water. I'm convinced there must be something screwy with the control module. I've tried the resets and everything else. Any thoughts?

It could be the control or it could be some sort of cheapass computer sensor. Measuring the turbidity of water within a dishwasher and washing machine allow the machines to run more efficiently by continually monitoring the particle levels in the water. The decrease or increase in voltage enables control optimization of water, time and energy efficiency. When installed in a dishwasher, the GE Turbidity Sensor supplies measurements to the washing controller module and based on those measurements the controller will determine how long the cycles will last. I would try replacing that bastard first.
