    Default GE Dishwasher won't drain

    Model General Electric GDT58055F8SS
    It has water about 2" deep in the bottom when done. Does not drain. I cannot hear any pump ever coming on during the cycles when it is supposed to drain. The main pump does come on in the wash cycles, it operates normal until time to drain. This is what I have replaced.
    Machine control board
    Logic Board
    Drain pump
    Main pump, it is 2 wire pump
    Inlet valve
    I am stumped. There are no blockages. There is power to the drain and main pump. I have checked continuity of both pumps and is good. The new and old pumps register the same numbers when tested so it looks like the old pumps were never bad.

    I have not replaced the Turbidity sensor, flood control sensor or the passive drain diverter. I think that is all that is left to replace. Please any ideas on this? Thank you for any help.

    Hi,

    GDT58055F8SS
    Could that be GDT580SSF8SS

    It has water about 2" deep in the bottom when done. Does not drain. I cannot hear any pump ever coming on during the cycles when it is supposed to drain.
    There is power to the drain and main pump.
    The drain pump is not running, even with power to it? This has been checked with a volt meter?

    There are no blockages.
    This has been checked all the way from the d/w through the drain to the house drain spout?

    Yes on the model number.
    Yes I checked both with a volt meter and they are getting power but not running on the drain cycle. The main pump does work in the wash cycle.. Both the main and the drain pump are new. Could the Passive drain diverter cause this? It looks clear but could it possibly be failing?

    The diverter looks to be in the wash system and not the drain.

    Yes I checked both with a volt meter and they are getting power but not running on the drain cycle.
    It should be running if it is getting real power.....I can't find a picture of the drain pump, but if it is 120 volts AC I'd hook up a test cord directly to the drain pump and plug it into an extension cord powering the drain pump only and see what happens.....drains, runs and doesn't drain, etc, etc.
