Question about GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Problem draining became problem with filling

The dishwasher in question hasn't been used in about a year. We just got our kitchen redone and when we ran the dishwasher, there was water left in the bottom. Turned out that the knockout plug had not been removed from the new disposal. Easy enough to fix. But now the dishwasher won't fill and it makes odd, clicking noises that seem electrical in nature. Any advice for us? The dishwasher is a GE Nautilus, about 3 years old, and had worked great for the first two years.

I have a Maytag dishwasher Model PDB3600A. the dishes are left with a strong soap residue after a full cycle of wash. I use a powder detergent and Jet Dry. What should I check to solve the problem?

When you open up the dishwasher is there still water in the bottom of the dishwasher????? The screen around the bottom could be dirty. Or the drain line could be restricted, if it drains back to the Garbage disposal make sure it is draining. Are you using hot water??? Check to see if the Arms are turning and the ports are not plugged with debrie.... If the drains are OK and the screen is clean...... I put in about a half gallon of white Vinegar in the wash cycle after it filled with water and used no soap and rewashed the dishes. I ran the Hot water faucet at the Kitchen sink till the water was good and Hot and then on the dishwasher used the heat water feature. It cleaned up the dishes and the dishwasher. I did this on a Whirlpool dishwasher but it should work for any make of dishwasher. Hope this helps... I had to do this several time to get all the dishes back clean

Too much sink water causes flooding from dishwasher.

If you let it sit with vinegar and it worked after for a while that tells me it may be plugged up with grease. Might be worth while trying to clean it out with Drain O a drain cleaner. Make sure its washed clean after. Grease and dirt builds up after a while in all machines. If vinegar works might be worth cleaning more often.

Water left in the bottom of a hobart (kit aid) dishwasher

Drain valve not opening, kinked or blocked drain hose. Remove the hose from the sink plumbing and look for debris. try running the drain hose into a bucket to eliminate a domestice plumbing issue, but hold onto it when it starts draining, or you will have a wet kitchen. Timer contacts may not be opening drain valve.

Water not draining whirlpool quiet partner ii

Remove the drain line where it hooks into the disposal. See if the plug, which must be removed to let water thru, is still in there. I ran into this on a service call a few years back. Removed to plug and voila! Hope this helps!

Doesn't run

I asked for help when the dishwasher (GE 1991) started up and then quit. Your site was useful as we found a priority list of things to check, thus saving much time and confusion. Our problem turned out to be a disconnected ground wire.

Thanks for the help. You probably saved us a couple of hundred dollars for a repairman. We intend to replace the dishwasher next year when the kitchen is renovated so the timing was important.

Dishwasher runs for 3 hours

Are you using the high wash temp setting? I was having the same problem with my dishwasher while using that setting. Apparently, it will run until the temp gets to its required number. And my hot water heater was set to not go that far. So my dishwasher would run and run. I fixed it by not using that setting any more.
