Question about GE GSD3200J Dishwasher

GE Dishwasher The water does not shoot up from the center. It just slowly bubbles over. I did not see or feel any obstructions. Is this a bad pump? How do I get to it?

Have you gone to the GE website yet?

You can drill down to "appliances" .. "dishwashers"... then "Parts&Accessories" (on the left side of the web page).Look for the section titled "Repair or Replacement Parts". Enter your model number. You can see drawings of your machine. I suggest looking at the tubing leading to the water valve. There are a couple of screws below the door which you need to loosen to get access to this and everything else. They do have your model on the site. I have repaired several of my own GE dishwashers over the years. Most use the same core components. Let me know how you make out. If you need more help, I'll be glad to help.

I have a 2002 dodge grand caravan 3.3 L engine my engine overheats and loosing coolant but no sign of leak under. New thermostat, radiator and flushed system but coolant slowly leaks. No white smoke


Top it off while cap is off and it is idling. You will see little bubbles. At first just a few. Like a newly opened soda pop bottle. Over a few weeks more bubbles will be there.
This is a head gasket.
If there are no bubbles I'll be surprised. But if there are none then have your water pump looked at.
Do the bubble test first. And then you can feel lucky if it's the waterbounp. Do not do the water pump until you check for bubbles.

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model W10082943A) is draining very slowly, what should I look for to fix it?


If your Dishwasher is not Draining check the following

PISTON VALVE

On some dishwashers that have a filter (screen) along the back wall of the tub have a piston valve. The piston valve commonly causes dishwashers not to pump out. if your dishwasher does have a filter, remove it. Now remove the piston valve located in the center behind the filter. Now to check the piston valve, press up on the spring. Once done the piston should stop up the hole in the top of the valve. When a piston valve, is bad the piston dissolves to the point that it can no longer stop up the hole, in this case replace it.

DRAIN SOLENOID

Another common problem on some dishwashers that will cause it not to drain properly is the drain solenoid. To check this, first disconnect power from dishwasher then remove the bottom panel of dishwasher. Once off, you should see the drain solenoid attached to the main pump then reach under the dishwasher and push down on the solenoid. If it will not move down it is bad and needs replacing. If it will push, down most of the time it is good but not always so follow these steps as well. Reconnect power to dishwasher, now start the dishwasher in to a cycle. If you have a mechanical timer turn it slowly until the solenoid energizes. If you turn the timer all the way around and the solenoid never energizes replace the solenoid. If you have an electronic control, start the dishwasher and wait a few minutes then push start/reset then the drain solenoid should energizes, if not replace the solenoid. At times the timer will cause this part to go bad especially if its melted or frozen down. So you may have to replace the timer as well.

CHECK VALVE

If your dishwasher is not draining properly, the check valve may be your problem. The check valve will be on some dishwashers with both a separate drain pump or drain valve (note if you do not have both you will not have a check valve). The check valve will be located where the black hose connects to the drain pump. To access the check valve, you must first remove the water from the dishwasher. A Wet-Vac works well. After the water is out, disconnect power to dishwasher. Now remove the dishwasher from under the cabinet. Now remove the black hose (even though you removed the water you will still have water in the pump so be ready).Once off you should see the check valve. It's the little red rubber flap. If it is torn off, the flap may have gone down the drain but you still should see the red ring left behind, in this case replace the valve. Sometimes the check valve will swell up and hang in the pump, if so replace it.

DRAIN PUMP

If your dishwasher is not draining properly, the drain pump may be your problem. As stated before, not all dishwashers will have a drain pump. To check this, First check to see if it is getting power. You should have 120 volts when the dishwasher is put into a drain cycle. If you have power and the pump does not run remove the pump and check for obstructions if none found replace the pump.

DRAIN HOSE

If your dishwasher is not draining properly, the drain hose may be stopped up. To check, remove all the water from tub. A Wet-Vac works well for this. After the water is gone remove the drain hose (even though you removed the water you will still have water in the pump so be ready) from the house plumbing and the dishwasher. Check for obstructions and remove. If you just installed a new garbage disposal check that the metal knockout was removed. Check the air gap if this is not right your dishwasher will siphon water back into it.

Will not pump water out of the bottom of dishwasher


UNPLUG THE DISHWASHER. Inside the dishwasher is a covered drain, usually covered with a plastic guard to prevent large objects from getting into the drain. Remove the blades in the bottom (careful but on my GE they come off with a firm pull) Remove the drain cover and see if the drain is plugged. If it does not appear to be plugged, you may have a bad drain pump. This usually requires you to remove the dishwasher but on some you can access it by removing the bottom plate. You then can disconnect it from the dishwasher drain by loosening a band that holds it firmly to the pump housing. Be ready with something to catch the water as it drains out. If the water inside drains out then your pump is bad. Because the water inside drained out, that tells you that the drain to the pump is clear. Your dishwasher has a drain pump that moves the water out. You will need to remove it, check it for obstructions and replace it. If it still does not work, you will need a new pump. There are two water connections to the pump, one for the flow from the dishwasher and another for the flow out. There are two electrical connections that you will have to remove.

Water does not drain


HI. i recommend inspecting the following areas to address this issue.


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer/Control
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Improper rack loading Make sure large dishware does not block the

Dishwasher


Check the drain hose and sink drains for obstructions. Check your disposal make sure it is clear if you have one. If drain lines are clear, then you may have an obstructioin in your pump. clear obstruction and it should work properly. If no obstructions are found check voltage going to pump during pump out. If you have voltage to the pump and the water is not pumping out, you will need a new pump. Good luck and I hope this helps you.
