Question about GE 24 in. Profile PDW9880JSS Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Leaks when being unloaded

We have a GE profile built in dishwasher. Our kitchen floor is carpet. Several times after emptying the dishwasher we noticed a soiled patch on the carpet approximately five inches in front of the dishwasher. The spot is wet but the carpet between the dishwasher and the spot is dry. We clean the spot with a carpet cleaner and it is not noticible for several weeks and then it comes back. I cannot imagine how the spot is connected to the dishwasher but there seems no other connection. Can you give me some guidance? The dishwasher was here when we purchased the house so I do not have the manual. Is there a grease trap or some filter that needs to be changed?

I may not have the full solution here, but to avoid (expensive) sub-floor damage, I recommend you do the following.  Assuming that the water is not coming from some dripping between the opened door at the hinge....
-Remove the kick plate that is in the bottom, front of the dishwasher.
Use a flashlight to look for wet flooring.  Run the dishwasher with the kick plate removed, watching for leaks/dripping.  It is possible for a leak to seep under the floor.  If leaking is found, do not ignore it.  Pull the dishwasher, fix the leak or replace the dishwasher.  Remove the first layer of sub-floor under the dishwasher, looking for deeper damage.
You should probably do the same with the carpeted area.  Pull the carpet back and decide if the sub-floor needs to be replaced.  A flooring expert should probably inspect.
Sorry to be such an alarmist, but I have been around floor damage that was unnoticed and ignored.

Check the pump and filter for blockages as the dirty water may be not draining properly. A mix of detergents is ok. Run a prewash with the unit empty and see if the water is still greasy

Dishwasher does not drain completely. Then when left fills with water by a slow drip and leaks onto the floor through the front door seal.

Put wrong soap in the SmatDispense container...


If you run it as is you will have a kitchen full of soapy water.
Take a pot or pan. Fill it with COLD water. Our it into the DW. Fillit to the regular water level, about 1 inch below the bottom rim.
Set the DW to a pump out setting and drain it.
You will have to repeat this several times to clear the soap out.
COLD water pump out. Cold water pump out etc.
Do not use HOT water. You will get instant suds and lots of them.

GE dishwaher leaks with standing water in bottom


Check to make sure regular dish soap did not end up getting inside the dishwasher. This will create a lot of suds that will overflow onto the kitchen floor. Standing water from not draining can mean the drain hose is clogged somewhere or the check valve has something caught in it. If you remove the front kick plate, you will be able to check those.
