You probably have a restricted water inlet valve. It is not allowing the proper rate of flow for the allotted time, therefore not giving enough water to create the proper velocity to reach the top rack.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.

Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.

For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water is draining and is not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in dishwasher then check for clogged drain hoses and drain pump.

Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.



Thanks

SOURCE: My ge potscrubber 650 is leaking onto the floor in

On ours, the leak was on the right side, and it turned out to be a failure in the seal around the soap dispenser.

SOURCE: ge potscrubber 650 Dishwasher is humming

This happens when the DW goes unused for a while. The motor is stuck. Open up the lower panels and move the Motor Fan by hand until it moves freely. This worked for me until a seal broke.

Freeing the motor may break the seal between the motor and pump assembly. I'm in the process of replacing that now.

Check for leaks by running the DW before putting the lower panels back on.

GE potscrubber 940 isnt cleaning properly. Glasses cloudy, some dishes still dirty. Is there a filter that can be checked?


You need to add some vinegar. Depending on your water as much as 4-5 cups per load. I have had a Potscrubber for close to 10 years and discovered that they clean beautifully as long as you don't skip the vinegar.

Is water suppose to stay in the sump pump of a ge potscrubber dishwasher. The water drains except in the very bottom where I guess the pump is. There is lots of mildew and I have lots of grit on my...


Yes water does stay in the sump all the time. This is normal.

Try running a cycle with a cup of Vinegar or Baking Soda in the dishwasher.

Also check to make sure that your drain line (under the sink) is higher than the sink drain and not allowing some sink drain seepage back into the dishwasher.

Water not coming into dishwasher


Without knowing the model number of your GE dishwasher, but some dishwashers don't notice when the float / float switch is stuck. That could cause the dish washer to move through all the cycles but never have water flow into the dishwasher. That would be the first place I would look. But please post back here with what you find (plus the model number of your dishwasher) before ou rate me level of helpfulness, OK?
