    Dishwasher wouldn't drain. It would only circulate in the wash cycle, then...nothing when it was supposed to drain.
    Had a repairman come in and he said it was a faulty clock timer and quoted $285 to repair it! That's more than half the cost of a decent dishwasher, new. So I paid his minimum fee and let him go. Before buying a replacement, however, I went on this site and following the trouble shooting instructions and testing the timer, I found out it was working normally! What wasn't working was the solenoid that switches a valve from the wash to the drain cycle. It was so melted inside you couldn't budge the little piston at all. So I ordered a new solenoid here, for about $45. It arrived a few days later. You have to take the kick panel off to get to it, under the machine, but it's only about 10 inches back from the front, so very easily reached. I took a picture of the existing part, as installed, in case I got confused later, putting in the new one. But that wasn't necessary. It was just a matter of taking out two screws, a spring and a little clip that holds one of the parts on a shaft. The replacement part was identical, so all I had to do was put the pieces of it together, matching the old one I had taken out, and reversing the procedure to put in the new one. Very simple. I re-connected the electrical wire to it, plugged the machine back in and BAM. Works like new! This is a great site! Love all the directions you provide!

    Water not draning.
    Removed solenoid and installed new one. The C ring was a bit bitchy to put on because of my big fingers, but I got it. Dish washer works fine.

    Unit not draining
    Watch installation video. Unplug unit from main power supply. Remove kickplates. The repair can be done without having to remove unit and turn on backside. Unplug solenoid electrical connector, unhook and remove spring, remove "C" snap ring, remove white plastic lever, remove two screws and remove solenoid assembly. Follow replacement instructions and put it all back together. Done job, works great!

    Dishwasher Drained Water Immediately (and was leaking)
    Bottom Line: Follow the video instructions and it's easy. I'll start by describing how I got to the point of repairing my dishwasher in case someone else has a similar problem. The first indication that I had a problem with my dishwasher was when it didn't clear out all the dishwasher detergent. Upon further inspection, it appeared that the water drained from the dishwasher immediately after it filled up. By doing some research - particularly on this site, I came to the conclusion there was something wrong with the solenoid that closed the drain shut-off. Further analysis revealed a lot of water damage to the wood underneath the dishwasher. Apparently the original problem was that there was a leak, but never enough to run out from under the dishwasher - just enough to damage the floor immediately under the dishwasher, so the initial problem went unnoticed for quite a while. Ultimately, what had happened was the Drain Valve Shaft Seal had been failing/leaking for a very long time. It was not only leaking, but the leak caused the Drain Solenoid (which is situated right below the drain valve shaft) to rust and eventually fail. If it wasn't for this website, I don't think I would have figured all of this out and I would have replaced the dishwasher...and according to my wife, the refrigerator and stove too so they would all still match! I followed the repair videos on this site. They were extremely helpful and made the repair go as smoothly as if I had done this repair a number of times. Definitely go with their recommendation to replace the Push On Nut - I had to cut mine off. One thing to add is that I didn't even pull the dishwasher out of it's normal position to fix it even though in the video they showed the repairman working on the dishwasher on it's side. It was a little cramped, but definitely easy to accomplish while still in place. I will absolutely visit this site again if I have a problem with one of my appliances! Thank you very much for the service you all provide!

    not draining
    Replaced the valve flapper. In this model GSD5310D00AA the flapper is not where the instructions say it is. It is in the out put rubber tube.
