The house I'm renting has a GE dishwasher (model GSD400T-48WA). At the end of a complete cycle, there is quite a bit of (mostly dirty) water in the bottom - it comes up to the bottom of the lower rack. At one point, I siphoned the water out by hand and got about 3 gallons. I then ran the dishwasher again and once again it was full of water.
If I leave the water in there and run the machine, I end up with the same amount of water as before. So it appears that it's trying to drain - just not fast enough or completely.
It appears that all plumbing connections were made from below as there are no hoses leading from the dishwasher to the sink drain. (no disposal, single sink).
Is this most likely a problem with the dishwasher drain or pump? Or is it more likley related to the drain pipe it dumps into?
