SOURCE: Large blue band appeared on lower tray following wash cycle,

So. We had the same problem tonight and I have been sitting lookin at this thing for an hour and decided to run it and see what happened with no rubber band in there. After the cycle was over I noticed that my wife washes those "snap wear" containers in the dishwasher and these items have colored coated Mylar bands as sealers. When they heat they expand and can be dislodged. It was a coincidence that it wrapped itself around the bottom spinner. Myth debunked!!!!!

Found a blue rubber type substance in dishwasher after cycle?


I found the same blue rubbery stuff all over the inside of the dishwasher. We used Finish Gel for a couple years. Here is what it looks like

I have a whirlpool and when I opened it up today


Hi, not sure without model # but, it might help hold the upper spray arm to the upper rack. Is it the same color as the racks?
Please let me knw if I can assist you further.

How do you fix a noisy whirlpool dish washer DU1100XTP(Q) ?


A hard object has entered the wash module (on some models).
When the object is ground up, the sound should stop. If the
noise persists after a complete cycle, call for service.

Makes a funny noise


I had the same problem with my Triton XL Model # - GSD6660G02SS Dishwasher. I tried adding water, zip tied each wash arm (one at a time) and had no positive result. Then I noticed a notch on what is called the docking cone. It supplies water to the middle wash arm. When the upper rack is pulled out you can see the cone at the back of the washer. Anyway I put a rubber O ring on this notch and the noise stopped. I can't tell from the parts list if the O ring is supposed to be there or not. Maybe a GE repair tech can confirm this. Hope it works for you as it did for me.

Whirlpool dishwasher won't drain and won't run cycles - it's dead


I would think the dish washer control panel has burned out.
