GE PDW9700 - The dishes do not get cleaned

I have had this dishwasher for less than 2 years and the dishes as of about 8 months ago stopped getting cleaned. I have a water softner, use the recommended dish liquid and rinse and lightly clean the dishes before I put them in. GE has no answers and says I must be putting really dirty dishes in the dish washer. VERY FRUSTRATING!!!! I am ready to rip out the dish washer and start washing by hand!

    I have the same problem with our GE dishwasher. Ours is just over a yr old and not cleaning the dishes. I just pulled out 2 bowls that were as dirty as they were before I ran the dishwasher.

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.

We have a portable dishwasher for 15 years and had it built in a few months ago. Now the dishes are not coming out clean. The stainless pots and silverware has a rainbow like film on them.


Try some Iron Out. Follow directions carefully. It's very strong and caustic. Be careful not to inhale the fumes of the powder!

Grit like residue after cycle finishes.


I had the same problem and it was fixed by switching dishwasher soap. We always used the same liquid soap for years and when this problem came out of the blue (about 8 months ago) I switched to Cascade action pacs with Dawn. It did the trick! No more residue since then. We now are having a problem with the dishwasher not draining (our unit is 8 years old), but the grit issue has been handled!

Food Deposits left on dishes


I had an old machine with a similiar problem & I found that food had somehow entered into the arm that spins & sprays out water. The food blocked somewhat the holes which of course means less cleaning.
