Question about GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher
My dishwasher will start, "washing" light on, when draining to begin rinse cycle, the soap has not drained from the washing. The rinse cycle continues with soapy water. I have run it through the rinse cycle over and over (a wast of water) and it is still soapy. I tried placing a tiny amount of cascade in the dispenser, and it is still too much soap. Seems like it drains, but comes back in, or something. The drying time has diminished to 4 minutes. The time on the panel was 85 min to continue the entire cycle, now, it is 50 min. I have had two service techs here, neither of them could figure out the problem; one said just try vinegar in the water, which I did, and it did not help, the other said that he was not certain, but would order a new motor, which would take care of any problem. This does not make any sense to me, seems that since it is not draining to rinse good and not drying, it would be the pump and the heating element (if that is what dries).
What could be the problem?
The solution i'm going to give you might sound weird but it should work. The drain hose should have a curve of about 36 inches up and then down to the drain. This avoids the water to drain on its own, the water has to be forced out by the washing machine. hope it helps.
