    My dishwasher pumps water out at the same time it's filling with water. Is the drain valve the right part? Thanks
    For model number GSD500X-72WB

        Water not draining from dishwasher
        I had never done work on my dishwasher - I was a rookie in this area. Turns out the work itself was quite simple. Pulled the dishwasher out, turned it over, and was able to easily replace the motor and pump assembly. The drain tube was also an easy replace. A couple key notes:

        1. I also purchased a new drain solenoid and impeller kit. Note that both of these items are already included in the Motor and Pump kit replacement. There is no need to by both, now I have extras.

        2. The end of the drain tube has to be trimmed if you are routing the drain tube to an air gap mounted on your kitchen sink. You have to cut the large diameter end of the tube to get to the narrow portion that will fit on your air gap.

        3. The first cycle you run with the new motor/pump assembly is noisy. When you first fire it up the components in the pump are all dry, and they squeal until the water gets to them. I initially thought I had done something wrong, but once the water started flowing all the peculiar sounds cleared up.

        Water wouldn't drain.
        After disconnecting the supply and drain hoses I unscrewed the security screws and slid the unit out of it's space under the counter. I tipped the machine about 30-45 degrees to one side and examined the underside. I noticed a solenoid that appeared to control a valve leading to the drain tube. I cycled the washer through a wash cycle and noticed that the solenoid never activated. I removed the solenoid and found it filled with debris. I cleaned it out and reinstalled it, but it still did not function. I ordered the part from PartSelect.com because they had the clearest description of the part I needed. Delivery was quick and installation took only a few minutes. After hooking everything back up and sliding the machine back in place, it works like new.

        Dishwasher would not drain
        I simply removed the front toe kick panels.
        The solonoid is staring you in the face.
        I removed the small nuts on back side of the solonoid bracket and removed the retaining clip and springs.
        I installed the new solonoid and was very surprised how easy it was.

        I DID turn the power OFF at the breaker panel prior to starting the repair.

        Would not cycle / would not drain
        Timer - (easy):
        Turn off power for unit at breaker box. Open the front door and remove the screws holding the front cover. Locate timer. Unplug timer and remove screws holding timer in place. Reverse process to install new timer.

        Drain solenoid - (a little harder):
        Turn off water to dishwasher under sink and disconnect from plumbing. Disconnect drain line. Remove any screws holding dishwasher in place and start pulling unit from it's cavity. It should come about half way out. At this time you can peer under the unit and see the drain solenoid.

        If you don't know what you're doing (like me) I recommend the following. Remove the water line from the dishwasher (and possibly the drain line) It should now be easy to pull the unit all the way out and tip it on it's side, fully exposing the drain solenoid.

        Note: The drain solenoid provided to me was encapsulated in a different bracket than the original one in my dishwasher unit. It was necessary to pry the solenoid out by bending the bracket and installing in the original bracket. Then squeeze back together in a vice with a few gentle love taps with a hammer to squeeze it all back together. It was still a little loose but the solenoid just goes up and down so no big deal.

        There's a little metal clip holding the white plastic arm to the drain valve. Let's say this O represents the diameter of the metal rod it's hooked to. That clip is removed by a small screwdriver pushing the clip away from that rod, this way: 0 ==> It will make sense once you do it.

        From there it's pretty easy to replace the solenoid unit and reverse the steps above to re-install the unit.

        Dishwasher not draining on all cycles.
        My GE Potscrubber 940 would not drain on all cycles. After checking the basin traps and not finding any blockage in the water drain line, I suspected that the problem was with the drain solenoid, since the motor was running smooth. I removed the dishwasher, primarily by removing the water supply line on the left side from the water inlet valve and disconnecting the electrical connections. Make sure you turn off the water and electricity before you do any work on the dishwasher. With the dishwasher taken out and on its side, the drain solenoid unit will be visible near the motor in the middle assuming that the front bottom panel of the dishwasher has been removed. I found mine to be all crudded up. I removed the electrical connections and the solenoid bracket. Then by using my multimeter, I found a bad resistance reading (infinity) for the solenoid. I ordered the Drain Solenoid Repair Kit and replaced all the items except the plastic rocker arm. Naturally, just reverse your steps to get the dishwasher back together. Turn the water and electricity back on and fire her up. Check for proper operation and any leaks and you should be done.

        Would not drain
        The repair kit solenoid was mounted in a metal bracket. My unit has the solenoid and mounting bracket as one piece. If the solenoid was separate it would have been an easy fix. As it was I had to cut the solenoid out of the bracket to mount it in my unit which this kit was suppose to fit.
