Question about GE 24 in. GSD4030Z Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

I have a GE 24 in. GSD4030Z Built-in Dishwasher that leaks

My GE 24 in. GSD4030Z Built-in Dishwasher leaks when it goes into the drain cycle. The hose connections are ok. It is quite obvious that the leak is at the seal where the arm enters the housing pump assembly to turn the valve inside the housing pump in order to switch to the "drain cycle".

I have ordered from GE a gate shaft seal and a new push-on nut, hoping this will solve my problem.

My QUESTION is: are there any special instructions for replacing this seal, or is this a straightforward procedure, where I simply pull off the solenoid bracket, pull out the seal, then reverse the procedure?

Many thanks,

Bill Watson

Fills arbitrarily not holding any water after a full cycle. All seems well and on any given day it will have filled without warning and floods floor

Check your drain hose to where it connects under the sink. If it is connected to the garbage disposer, and not looped upwards before it runs back to the dishwasher, it may just be drain water from the sink running back to the dishwasher. Even if it hooks up to a "t" spout under the sink, and the drains run a little slow, water can still run back to the dishwasher. The ideal set up is to have it connect to the drainage, run up behind the bowls of the sink, and then back to the dishwasher.
If this is not the answer, then you may have a defective fill valve that is allowing water to seep into the machine (very unusual in dishwashers). Also note that water valves require 23 psi of pressure to seat closed and if the incoming pressure is less than that, even a new valve may have the same issue.
Good luck and let me know how you make out, and if you have any other questions.

Sometimes the drain hose will get partially clogged where it hooks into the drain under your sink. Take the hose off and put it into a pail. Advance the dishwasher to go into a drain cycle and see how fast the water comes out. If it comes out really fast check where the hose goes into the drain. Clean out with a screwdriver and refasten the hose and clamp.
If the water comes out slow the problem could be in the pump or drain hose.
Very common problem.

It will not drin about 2 inches of water after full wash cycle I have checked and cleane drain hose and checked the electrric drain plunger and it works and partly drains

Do you have a disposal and is it working? If yes, then the only other things i can think it would be is the impeller is stripped or the vane that opens to drain is stripped. You could also check the amps/and voltage to the motor to make sure it is running as it should.

Leaking dishwasher

Unless you can check the hose connections for leakage and the waste drainage outlet it would be difficult to diagnose any specific problem.

Hopefully it will be a loose or failed hose or drain problem which are easily fixed.

If you can move the timer manually, then check the power to the timer motor. If you have power to the motor, replace the motor
