The filter in the base of a GE Profile dishwasher traps large pieces of debris that could otherwise clog the drain. Clean the filter whenever it appears to be clogged to keep your GE Profile dishwasher running smoothly. Removing the filter allows you to clean it thoroughly.
Open the GE Profile dishwasher door.
Pull the bottom rack out and set it aside.
Grasp the handle on the filter. Pull straight up to disconnect the filter from the dishwasher base.
