Hi tucker19,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You just purchased a GE Dishwasher from Home Depot...Its a QuietPower3...and after you run it, there is detergent build up on the detergent dispenser lid and residue on dishes...HEAVY RESIDUE...Why????

Are you useing a dry soap? If so, try a liquid. Make sure it says DISHWASHER soap on it. Also, use half as much liquid as the dry. Some new d/w's can be tempermental that way. If it persists then use the warranty.

Feel free contact me again!

GE Adora dishwasher model ddt575smf0es leaking from condensation


Sounds like a poor install. If the hoses aren't collected correctly heat from water could cause expansion therefore looser doors and hinges. Make sure the water connections are tight and then check the screws at the bottom of the door. you shouldn't need a pro to fix.

My heating element has white scale and build up on it


Hello, You should buy some lime away from home depot ot Lowe's. Put 2 cups inside the dishwasher and run a pots and pans cycle. This should clear up the calcium deposit on the heater. You may have to repeat depending on how bad the build up is. Hope this helps. Mike

My Jenn-Air dishwasher is approx 15 years old. Now all of a sudden it's leaving a white film on everything. I've tried both liquid and dry detergents as well as jet dry, running the hot water and disposer,...


it is not your dishwasher actually. it is your water. they must have changed the way they were treating it in your area. hard water leaves this white film. www.dishwasherfilter.com has a new product out exactly for this problem. it is very affordable and works amazing. you will love it guaranteed.

I have a GE QuietPower3 dishwasher... the normal wash, heated dry, hot wash and hot start buttons are all flashing... can you tell me what is going on please?


try this, I was researching and found that this solution worked. While all the lights are blinking, close the dishwasher door and let the machine run through the cycles. This actually happens pretty fast. Then it will stop and quiet down and all the blinking lights will shut off. Then just press the buttons you want and hit start and the machine will start. The time it takes for the blinking light to shut off is about 1 to 2 minutes. It worked for me.

Dishwasher hot water connection


Tell Home Depot they agreed to include installation with purchase, and if they refuse to honor their agreement, you will sue them in small claims court. To start a small claims action, call your local ton or city court and ask for directions on filing a claim

Need side mount brackets gpf65 because of granite counter top, model #ghda485n10cs ser# rm763786b, quietpower3 dishwasher


I don’t know your counter situation, usually you have to put dishwasher in a bottom cabinet and mount both side. Suppose you only have one side to mount, you have to go to home depot to buy a 90 degree metal mounting bar, mount the top part to your top granite support board, the bottom side mount to the dishwasher, it should be a ¾” plywood board underneath the granite, you can use ½” screw to mount it.

Hope this can help you,
