Tip & How-To about GE Portable Dishwasher

One cure for a slow emptying dishwasher

My dishwasher was emptying very slowly.So slowly that the next fill cycle would start before the previous cycle's water was gone.I turned the machine over,and noticed a short length of metal pipe in the hose line that carried the water from the tub to the sink.There was what I believe a ground wire attached to this pipe,so this was for grounding the machine,I assume.Anyway,it was held to the rubber hose ends with simple spring clamps.I removed the clamps,and examined the interior of the pipe.It was half filled with scale! I used a screwdriver to clean out the pipe,put it back in place,and the machine empties normally again.

Cycle starts, but does not fill with water


When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'. When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20 times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time, the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly, everything works fine, including the rinsing.

Water slowly filling cabinet when dishwasher is off.


either
leaking valve - to check, turn water off and see if it still happens
or
if appliance is plumbed in to a spigot on the sink trap, then when you empty sink, some of the water finds its way into the dishwasher via the drain hose. to cure, take the drain hose as high as possible under the sink in a swan neck
