Turn off the dishwasher.
Remove the chrome cover from your air gap, which protrudes a couple inches above the rim of the sink.
Pull up to remove the plastic cap.
Clean any debris off the air gap with a toothpick. Put the plastic cap and the chrome cover back in place and turn the dishwasher back on. The GE Profile dishwasher now should drain.
- If the dishwasher does not drain after cleaning the air gap or if you do not have an air gap, turn on the disposer and let it run for a few moments until the food inside of it is processed and cleared.
