C5 error on GE Twenty-Eight Hundred dishwasher.

I just installed a old GE Twenty-Eight Hundred dishwasher but we keep getting a C5 error stating the water pressure is low and not enough water. I installed a new shutoff value and dishwasher water supply line so I am confident the water supply is adequate and unobstructed. Are there any parts pre or post pump that could clog triggering the C5 error? Any suggestions?
Thanks for your help.

    ihave the same problem. If it hooked up to the same line as the sink, I found that it helps to hit the sink disposal firts for both the c5 and the one that says water level is high

If you've checked that nothing is in the way (no spoons hanging down, etc) just press and hold start and it will start up again and probably won't reoccur for the rest of the cycle. Our dishwasher started doing this near the end of its life....

Hi afarugia,

The IE error you are seeing means Inlet Error, this shows because your dishwasher is not getting enough water through in a specific time frame - Please check the following:

- Is the Inlet hose kinked in any way? (This could lead to low water pressure to the solenoid) Straighten it.
- Is the Inlet hose filter (Found when unscrewing the hose form the inlet on the machine) dirty? Clean it.
- Is the tap completely open? (Low pressure)
- Has your home gone under any plumbing alterations? (This could have also caused low water pressure - Too little water)

If all of these come back OK, and it still gives the same problem, I'd suggest replacing the inlet valve (Found on the opposite side of the inlet pipe - inside your Dishwasher), could also be a pressure switch (Found at the bottom of your Dishwasher - accessible from the bottom).

This should solve any problems.

Kind Regards :-)

Recent changes in the law prevent soap makers from putting phosphates in dishwasher soap so they're not as effective as the were even a few months ago.  Unfortunately,  the solution is more thorough rinsing before loading.

Even after a deep cleaning cycle I keep getting food particles on the inside of the glasses that sit in the top rack of the dishwasher. The unit is only 5 months old! Help!


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

My one month old Bosch dishwasher Model SHE6AF06UC has and error code E-01. It was there when I came home. Can't find anything on this.


think this means that your water pressure is not high enough for rinsing to be completed 100%. do you have low water pressure.
