Question about Dishwashers
I have a GE dishwasher (gsd5500g00bb) and had to replace the ESCUTCHEON & INSERT ASM (part 901) which meant that I had to take the front panel apart.
See diagram at http://www.us1internet.net/GSD5500G00BB/ for part numbers.
I got the escutcheon in correctly, however the spring timer lever (part 837) and lever (part 861) popped out. I believe these parts are underneath the Sequence Switch (part 904 ). I put it in how I thought was correct by holding down the dishwasher soap dispenser in the closed position and then closed the two parts of the front panel.
I'm concerned that I may not have put the two parts back together correctly and that the switch may be in the wrong location. I can't find a diagram online of what it looks like or fits together. Nor do I have a user manual as this is a rental property.
The soap dispenser would not open all the way, but I was able to put in the soap and close the dispenser.
The dishwasher ran fine until it got to the drying cycle and then started beeping. And ideas?
I turned off the dishwasher and the soap dispenser was wide open as it should be. However, it is very difficult to close it. I don't know if it's related to the issue at all.

so here it is...
get a screw driver (you may need a "star" head driver as well), get in there and take out all that you can and clean it (it all comes out pretty easily)...you will find a lot of undisolved soap and hard water build up...rinse it, scrape it, vacuum it...just get out as much as you can...keep note of how you took it apart so you can put it back together...then put 1/2 to a whole gallon of vinegar in and run a cycle (hi-temp if you have that option)...if it was like mine most of your sprayers were gummed up and the water just wasn't moving through the machine...
to avoid this problem...use half of what you have been using of your detergent...and only fill the "pre rinse" section if you are doing pots and pans....and then only fill that half way as well.
after that run a few cups of vinegar through on an empty cycle once a month...
whole job (not including the wash cycle) 1.5 hours...

I had the same problem with my GE Adora. The dishes were getting cloudy and the soap dispenser would not open. Turns out the hard water deposits were causing the soap dispenser to stick shut. I purchased and used Dishwasher Magic which is a dishwasher cleaner designed to remove limescale, rust and buildup. I used as directed and now my dishes are sparkling and the soap dispenser pops right open.
