GE GDF620HMJ2ES dishwasher fills with water, but then it just drains

First, I have scanned the manual and searched for this problem. So many have had this issue, but it seems not with this dishwasher type, so apologies for asking about this issue if it is already answered.

"Hi @kolfild22

Have you checked the temperature of the water supply to the dishwasher?

According to p.5 of the installation manual it says to “Adjust water heater for 120°F to 140°F temperature”.

There is also a heater element- part #101 body parts diagram which is used to raise the temperature but this can only raise it by some 20-40F.

I cannot find a temperature sensor or thermostat shown in the parts list so I’m not sure how the control board knows whether the temperature is correct or not or whether to turn on the heater also unless the heater is merely a ‘timed” event so to speak only when Heated dry or Wash Temp boost or Sani is selected. Maybe the tech sheet mentions about the water temperature?

Perhaps the heater element is checked to make sure that it is OK. Try using an Ohmmeter (disconnect power from the dishwasher) and check that the heater element has continuity and is not open circuit. Don’t know the resistance value but usually they are between 25-100 Ohms and definitely not open circuit.

Looking at the parts for your model there are two pumps, the circulation pump -part #310 - sump and motor mechanism diagram and the drain pump - part #325 - sump and motor mechanism diagram

Check if there is power getting to the circulation pump and if so check that the pump motor winding has continuity.

There are other suppliers online that may suit you better. This was only to show you the parts and their location. Just search for GDT695SGJ2BB parts"
