How To Drain Ge Dishwasher Mid Cycle


Draining a GE dishwasher mid cycle can be necessary when the dishwasher has malfunctioned, or when dishes need to be removed. Whether you have a front control or a top control dishwasher, there is a simple process to follow. Here is what you need to know.

Before starting, you need to make sure to unplug the dishwasher and turn off the water supply. If you do not, you may damage the dishwasher as well as risk electric shock.

Once you have unplugged and turned off the water, open the dishwasher door and locate the drain line. This is usually a small flexible hose that runs from the bottom of the dishwasher to the sink drain.

Once you have located the drain line, you can start the draining process by taking off the cap at the end of the drain line. This will allow the water to drain out of the dishwasher. The water may still be hot, so be careful not to get burned.

Once the water has drained out, you can then take off the kickplate at the bottom of the dishwasher. This kickplate is usually held in place by a few screws and will be located near the bottom of the dishwasher.

Once the kickplate is off, you should see a large access panel. This panel will be held in place by a few screws, and once removed, you should see the dishwasher’s drain pump.

At this point, you can unplug the drain pump and remove it from the dishwasher. This will allow you to remove any debris that may be blocking the drain line. Once the debris is removed, you can then reassemble the dishwasher and turn the water back on.

After the water is back on, you can then turn the dishwasher back on and continue the cycle. If the issue with the dishwasher was not related to the drain line, then you may need to call a repair service to fix the issue.

Draining a GE dishwasher mid cycle can be a simple process if you follow the above steps. Be sure to always unplug the dishwasher and turn off the water supply before attempting any repairs. This will help to keep you and your dishwasher safe.
