First you need to see if you are getting enough water. Let it fill and then look at the center hub where the spray arm is. The water should be at least to the top of that hub. Also you can clean out the sump which is located in the right rear corner of the tub. Usually there is a cover over this which is easily removed with a few screws. Reach in with a gloved hand as there may be glass down there and clean it out. Also look at the spray arms themselves to see if the holes are clogged. You can usually clean these holes with a toothpick or similar object. If the water fill is too low, you may to need to clean or replace the water valve which is located behind the lower access panel usually on the left side.

Dishwasher won't drain at the end of the cycle


Whenever an appliance does operate its pumps/valves heaters correctly for part of a cycle then doesnt at another point, it is a problem with the controller of the sequence in the cycle.. On older devices this can be a rotating knob that slowly runs to end of cycle triggering events as it turns, by tripping blade switches near the rotating item. On these the switch trigger points can be inspected and sometimes repaired. On newer items the cycle is controlled electronically, and you have to replace the whole control unit, which is usually a large expensive part that includes the display and all buttons. Try getting a used control unit from Ebay and swapping it out, or consider replacing the whole appliance.

How do you remove the sprayer arm from a GE potscrubber 600


Thought I had a problem with the spray arm or pump because water was not flowing enough to spray the upper rack. But it turned out it was a simple part missing: the "check valve" that is in the lower neck of the spray arm assembly. It's a $10 part. Part #WD1X5488 for GE Potscrubber 600.

GE Potscrubber disher - water leaks out while filling


I would try removing the cover and make sure the float isn't sticking. On mine the float pushes on a rod that goes through the tub to a micro switch. When you hit it, it probably frees it up for a while. Hope that helps.

My GE Eterna Series 3 Quiet power is not cleaning our dishes. Mostly the dishes on the top row has lots of stuff found in the glasses and mugs. YUCK!! I ran it for a minute and there is just water in...


I just took mine apart (bottom turntable, screen, etc.) and I was disgusted by the grime and gum that was clogging everything. I think it was keeping all the water a gritty white, which constantly left residue. I am currently running a load... hope that the "clean" dishwasher actually washes my dishes now!

GE 720 Potscrubber I started with the water puddling in bottom now it progressed to leaking on the floor. I had a repair guy come to my home yesterday and he says a broken seal and my total cost to replace seal and labor is $165 plus tax.
What is the life expectancy? He did not sound too promising about the future of my dishwasher and said he is certain there will be another repair need shortly something related to the water saturating an area underneath the dishwasher?
He reccomended I call Sears and replace with a Whirlpool product. He claimed he put his kids thru college repairing GE products. My husband wants to repair and I dont because of fear of spending more money!
