When I am unloading the dishwasher the dishes have a white residue on them as if the soap wasn't rinsed off enough and many times the glasses have little bits of food stuck in them


The scum, film and white residue problems have started since the reduction of phosphates in dishwasher detergents.

Here is a tip that will help you to solve the problem of films, residue, and scum in your dishwasher.

Dishwasher just over a year old. Very slow to

The little white balls are check valves - you need them.

Have you checked the discharge check valve under the dishwasher where the discharge line connects to the sink? It is under the unit and can be unscrewed (carefully). The valve can be disassembled with a couple of pronged keepers. This check valve can become obstructed and cause the problem you decscribe.

Dishwasher will not drain all the water out

If this is a GE or Hotpoint dishwasher the solution is fairly easy, but a pain. GE (Hotpoint is the same company) has been using a small plastic ball that prevents backflow of the water. A lot of times that ball migrates and doesn't allow the dishwasher to drain. To get to this, you need to remove the two 1/4 inch hex head screws in the food trap basket, the 1/4 inch hex head screw from the spray arm, and use a small screwdriver to pry a clip at the back of the spray arm up to remove the spray arm assembly. Siphon as much water from the dishwasher as possible because you'll be opening up the plumbing below. Turn off your electricity to the dishwasher and pull it out of the cavity. Directly behind the motor is a large manilla-colored "tank" with a large hoseclamp holding a white union with two smaller hoses coming off it. Loosen and remove the white union from the large tank and the ball should fall out. Replace the white union, tightening the hose clamp and drop the ball back into the tube on the left side of the food trap basket. Put it back together and test run.

Water will not drain. Motor is working. Drain does not appear to be clogged.

GE has equipped many of their dishwashers with a crappy anti-syphon ball. The problem with this is that they often relocate and clog the drain. To fix it, syphon all the water out of the basin of the diswasher and remove the kick plate. Open the dishwasher and remove the 1/4" hex head screw behind the food screen and remove the spray arm by prying the plastic clip on the back side (be careful not to break it). Then remove the two 1/4" hex head screws in the plastic basket and remove it. Remove the two screws that hold the dishwasher to the countertop and slide the dishwasher out. There is a large manilla colored hose with a huge hose clamp on it. Have plenty of rags on hand because this part gets messy. Remove the hose clamp and pull this area open. A small white plastic ball should roll out. Replace the hose clamp and slide the dishwasher back into place (clean up all the water that escaped first, and make sure you have turned off the power to the dishwasher before beginning). Drop the ball into the small tube on the left side under where the plastic basket goes. Installation is reverse of removal.

GE profile dishwasher gsd5130d00ww does not pump all the water out of the basin after each cycle. The pump runs at a very low flow and only removes a small portion of the water. the basin screen and sump...

I believe this unit has an anti-siphon ball that is equipped to prevent back flow. Pull the dishwasher out and syphon the remaining water out. There is a large manilla colored hose that elbows from the back with a large hose clamp. Loosen the hose clamp and pull the hose free, you should see a little white ball come out. Put the hose back together, remove the spray arm (there is a plastic clip on the back, use a small screwdriver to pry it free but don't break it and a small 1/4" head screw for you to remove). Remove the two 1/4" screws from the food trap basket and remove the food trap basket. Drop the ball down the tube that is roughly the same size and reassemble the reverse of removal.

yes they are part of the assy. and need to be put back to function . whatever level of dissaslby you were at when you found them is where they belong. you can see by flipping over the last removed plate a little chanenl where it looks like the balls would go( the d/w fills with water and diff. pressures hold them against or push them down) depending on operation.they go in seperate openings as well
