My GE dishwasher 4 yrs old will not drain. I removed the filter cleaned it and found a tooth pick under it but it still will not drain. Bill Smith Appliance where I bought it can't come out till Jan 5. Plz can u help. ***** *****e

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I bought it 10/14/2013 model number is *****

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No way. i was scared to take the filter out knowing it was plugged in. I am 75 and usually not nervous about home repairs, but i will gladly try anything. i have 6 people staying with us this week so you can imagine i need my dishwasher!!!!

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I have run it several times took the plate holder out but no luck yet
