Question about GE 24 in. GSD3400G Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Dishwasher possibly didn't allow water flow.

Selected hot start option, later noticed smell, and found plasticware melted. Appears as no water entered system.

Cleaned up melted mess. Next attempt the front door seal was leaking water, so water flowed this time.

Door seal may have gotten hot and needs replacement. Also noticed door seal factory installed one way and attempts to pull out of channel when door closes. If installed the other way it looks like the seal would apply better sealing pressure to door.

This is addressing two issues.

Any suggestions. Thank you

being in the uk i dont know this appliance, but the fault is probably that it is overfilling caused by crap in the airchamber or the hose leading to the pressure stat blocked or a split in this hose

SOURCE: I noticed the black residue on the clean

I had exact problem with a similar model.Mine was about 8 months old. I could have ordered a replacement seal but it would have done the same thing after a few months (according to the shop where I buy/order anything that runs on electricity, most anyways). I opted paying a few extra bucks and bought a seal(not made by Maytag but they sell replacement parts that fit). Mines been fine ever since(no black marks left after high temp washing,etc) Following is a link that my guy orders from but you'll have to check and see if they have one to fit your model. www.apwagner.com/index.php?main_page=page&id..

I have a frigidaire FMB1100RHMO and first i was having a water problem and then i got the clog out. I have water pressure now but now it get stuck in the wash mode and dont come out unless i cancel it....


Hello Theresa Norman-Ramirez - Typically, it is normal for the dishwasher to delay the cycle and depending on the cycle and options selected, the cycle may last up to 4 hours. To reduce cycle time, turn on the hot water at the sink and allow it to get as hot as possible (between 120 F-130 F), then start the dishwasher. If the dishwasher cycle runs longer than 4 hours the main control board may need replacing. I would suggest contacting an experienced service technician to determine the precise cause.

Fdb1502rgc2 cycle long


Hello Ron Temple - Depending on which cycle is selected, the maximum time is approximately 4 hours. Factor that contributes to long cycle times is water temperature. The water temperature should be at least 120f and no more than 130f. I advise turning the hot water on at the sink (or faucet closest to the dishwasher); allow the water to get as hot as possible. Then, start the dishwasher. If you are still experiencing long time cycle, I personally recommend consulting a service provider.

Whirlpool gold drains all the time, unable to fill


Hello

Ensure the water faucet is turned on and the connection between the water and the dishwasher is secure. The hose connector should be snapped into place between the water faucet and the water hose.

Straighten the water hose and check for possible obstructions in the water hose, the water faucet and the hose connector. Clean as necessary. Turn on the faucet hot water slowly until it is all the way on to ensure proper water flow to the dishwasher.

Open and close the dishwasher door firmly. The dishwasher will not start a wash cycle if the door is ajar. Verify that the dishwasher is plugged in to a working power supply and that a wash cycle has been selected.

Avoid running other appliances that use water, such as a clothes washer, while the dishwasher is running, to avoid improper water pressure. This may result in a lack of water flow to the dishwasher.

Check to make sure large dishes, such as cookie sheets, pots or pans, are not blocking the spray jets. Avoid overloading the dishwasher.

Won't let water in


Hello.

The Hotpoint is a portable dishwasher that has pump guard, overflow protector,rack bumper to prevent the rack from falling out of the dishwasher duringmovement, and temperature and wash options. When the dishwasher is properlyconnected to a water and power supply, it should work well in general. However,if something goes wrong, such as if the dishwasher will not fill with water,some troubleshooting methods may be beneficial in finding a solution to theproblem.

Instructions.

1 Ensure the water faucet is turned on and the connection between the water andthe dishwasher is secure. The hose connector should be snapped into placebetween the water faucet and the water hose.

2 Straighten the water hose and check for possible obstructions in the waterhose, the water faucet and the hose connector. Clean as necessary. Turn on thefaucet hot water slowly until it is all the way on to ensure proper water flowto the dishwasher.

3 Open and close the dishwasher door firmly. The dishwasher will not start awash cycle if the door is ajar. Verify that the dishwasher is plugged in to aworking power supply and that a wash cycle has been selected.

4 Avoid running other appliances that use water, such as a clothes washer,while the dishwasher is running, to avoid improper water pressure. This mayresult in a lack of water flow to the dishwasher.

5 Check to make sure large dishes, such as cookie sheets, pots or pans, are notblocking the spray jets. Avoid overloading the dishwasher.

Thanks.

I am having issues with my dishwasher where it appears to be working but does not clean. Hot water does enter the unit and drains properly but is not cleaning. Muck is still on the door, the arms are wet....


No you need not wash the dishes but just cleaning of the debris and then putting it in the dishwasher for proper cleaning will help you to prevent the drain from getting blocked.

First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter.

Car smells like it is running hot but gauge doesn't show its running hot. I don't see anything leaking from underneath and have checked fluids. Had to have the thermostate replaced a couple of years ago...


This could be due to a leaky heater core. The heater core corrodes and starts with a tiny collant leak that smells collant inside the car and washes out with the A/C water when the A/C is running. This water/coolant mix drips out possibly over the right side exhaust pipe creating the "hot coolant" smell outside. At the begining you won't notice the coolant been lost, but later the loss will be ovious.

A burning smell and steamy smoke come out when we open the door.


Normally, the last part of any cycle involves using the heater element inside, and at the bottom of, the dishwasher to give dishes a final hot rinse. Possibly some small plastic-type material has become melted and stuck to the element - which will remain hot even after all water is discharged. Hence the smell.

My SHE4AM1 dishwasher just doesn't get the dishes clean ... especially any plasticware which comes out with an oily film


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Kenmore Dishwasher #587.... doing nothing but heat dry


The problem appears to stem from the float and float switch. The float is a mushroom shaped plastic part that resides on the bottom left, just inside the door. It appears that the float does not release the float switch, causing the dishwasher to think it is full of water, and won't allow the dishwasher to fill. It's a relatively straight forward repair, but even with a new part, the same scenario is likely to repeat itself until the float or float switch is modified by Kenmore.
