Question about GE 24 in. GSD2230Z Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

We have a GE Dishwasher Model # GSD 2000 Z02AD - water leaks

Because we hadn't used the dishwasher for awhile, the vanes were stuck and we loosened those and the dishwasher turned on. We were letting it run through a cycle with no dishes in the dishwasher and we noticed that water was leaking around the areas where the vanes are. What might be causing this?

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

I have a GE GSD 5130 Dishwasher that leaks about 12 oz of water when it is pumping out the wash water and the rinse water. Its fine during the wash and filling cycle. Is it a seal problem?


This is more likely the hose connection at the drain pump or the pump housing is leaking. You will need to remove the toe kick, place unit into a drain cycle and inspect for a leak. Here is a couple links that should help.

Dishwasher Does Not Cycle


IA, these GE pumps have a habit of sticking if the unit hasn't been run for a while. First you want to verify that the motor is in fact getting power, this will eliminate the timer. You can use a meter on the quik connect from the motor while in the wash cycle. If the motor is getting power, see if the pump is stuck by turning the motor vanes (Do this with the power off). If it's hard to turn and then frees up than this was more than likley your problem. You remove the bottom toe panel and will be able to check this out without removing the dishwasher.

Losing water pressure in pump?


Shellybabe, these GE dishwasher pumps have a habit of sticking when not in use for a while. It sounds like you have been washing but not good. If you remove the toe panel (lower) you will see the pump motor in the center. If the vanes in the back center of the motor turn freely, your pump is not stuck. If they wont turn, put pressure on them until the pump frees up. You also want to make sure that the fill valve is letting in enough water. The water should be just below the heating element after the initial fill. If you are not sure try adding 2 addition quarts of water to the machine after the initial fill and see if the circulation is better. Remember to unplug or kill the power to the dishwasher when checking the motor vanes...Catriver..post back.
