We are getting what looks like motor grease on the bottom of out dishwashers sometimes. What could it be from. It also growls on some washes, and on others it operates fine. Any ideas?? Thanks

This is a known issue for GE dishwashers and may be similar for other models too.  The fix is simple.  The noise is due to vibration of the arm for the middle sprayer.  Just secure it with a tie wrap or wire and the noise should be gone.

Refer to the following link for my earlier response to a similar issue which fixed the problem.

SOURCE: dishwasher issue

Have had this problem twice on my DWI614. First time engineer came out and I watched what he did and asked questions. He removed panel at bottom of dishwasher (2 screws) after removing facia panel from kitchen as it is a built in dishwasher. To the right is the drain pump. Remove 1 retaining screw and hose retaining clip. Ease out the drain pump and make sure to have some cloth beneath as residual water will flush out. Before I did this the second time I removed as much water from inside with a small cup first. Both times I had blockages in the drain pump. First was a piece of glass and second some food. I also pulled the drain pipe forward and blew through to make sure path to sink was clear. Clear out and reassemble. Start a simple program before putting the front back panel back on and you can touch the drain opump and feel it working as the water drains properly. That was my fix both times, good luck.

QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.

Recommendations:
-Switch to a brand name detergent powder - like Electrosol or Cascade and do not fill the dispenser cup full. You will notice the difference immediately.
-Remove the filter assembly one more time and inspect underneath with a flashlight. Look closely for debris and also inspect the impeller to look for damage and that it is spinning freely.
Reassemble and listen for the growling sound. It should not happen. If it continues, you may have a a failing wash motor / motor bearing.
Please report back what you find. OK?

Jenn-air dishwasher jdb1090aws wont drain


Hi,

Most common issue on this model is the drain motor itself. More times then not it gets clogged with debris. Pull the unit out and remove the three screws that mount the pump to the bottom of the dw.

take the hoses off and clean the drain motor out. It will fix this issue I have seen it more times then you could imagine. Good luck with your repair friend

We have a dishwasher that has cleaned great for six or seven years but all of a sudden we have started seeing a white film on all of our black plastic utensils, like spoons and the such. Now some is on...


If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1 cup of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

Won't drain


Look for the float.

It will be in the bottom somewhere. This is how your dishwasher knows it has water in it.
your float might be cracked or full of water (then it needs to be replaced. if you just want to drain the dishwasher in the short term, you can always prop up the float (but this will prevent the dishwasher from filling up again, because it will think it is still full...)

Or

sometimes it is an open bottom or air-trap type of float and it might just be filled up with grease and stuff.

Reach underneath with your finger (YUCK!) if you can, and scoop out the grease. Then it should work just fine.

Maytag Quiet Series 300 smells broken door latch and lower rack


I have had the same problem and there is a simple fix.

The problem in my case was the floating water sensor was stuck and gummed up with grease.

On the bottom of the dishwasher, in the front right corner there is a round doughnut-looking thing. This is the water level sensor. It is open on the bottom, and grease collects there.

When this happens, the air pocket is too small, and the float won't float. then the dishwasher overflows. To clean it: just reach under with your finger, and scoop out the grease.

Sometimes, after doing this, the float then gets stuck in the "up" position. When this happens, the dishwasher completely drains, and the heater element for the dishwasher is exposed, and food cooks onto it, and that is where the smell is coming from.

I hate to sound like a broken record. But look for my vinegar and CLR fix. In my experience in most cases that works.
