Question about GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

GSD4200 Will not clean the dishes. All functions appear to be working as normal

I checked and cleaned everything on the inside of the unit as well as checking the water temp. (was at 120) Also checked water inlet valve and it was 1056 ohms. I ran the unit through many times and get the exact same results. Dirty dishes and the soap from the container is not even half gone. My water level once filled seems low. Mine is about half way up from bottom to the heating coil. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks Don

    Over a period of time debris and grease can collet on the inderside of the float that controls the water level. When this happen, the water level will be too low and the unit will not wash correctly. The float needs to then be removed and cleaned so that it will allow the water to fill to the proper level in the tank.

SOURCE: GE Natulus will not fill with water

Had the same problem with ours today. That's why I got on here. My dad used a gallon jug to prime it with a gallon of hot tap water. We primed it to get it pumping, and now it is working fine. Just pour the hot water into the dishwasher and start it.

SOURCE: UNDISSOLVED SOAP RESIDUE AND

I have the same dishwasher and kept having soap still in the dispenser at the end of the wash. Someone mentioned this, but what was happening is that the soap dispenser lid was blocked from fully opening by the top rack. You also typically have large pans in this area, so the water spray is blocked from getting under the half open lid well. I started opening the dishwasher after I heard the dispenser latch release, so the lid could fully open. After that, I had no problem with soap still in the dispenser. I started setting a timer to open and shut the dishwasher door about 20 minutes into the wash process (after the latch had released for the 2nd wash cycle), so the soap dispenser lid would be fully open. This was a pain, but it worked. The other thing to be careful of with this dishwasher is to ensure you have pushed the top rack in tight before closing the door. Look at the water connection for the top "spinner" and you will see how the plastic pipe fits up to the supply. If you don't have the rack pushed in tight, you get leakage around the connection and don't get good water spray from the top spinner arms. This can definitely affect the quality of the wash. You mentioned the dispenser lid is open when the cycle is complete, but that is because once you open the door it can fully open.

Yes, please pull the unit out carefully - once it is unplugged and off - and clean everything you can reach. If there is a toe grille take it off the front and clean it with a vacuum or condensed can air. Also clean the inside and make sure you don't notice any gaps in the door seal. Gnats and bugs can get inside little gaps, or there might be spoiled food that is causing them to appear as well. Check everything and make sure no vents inside the cabinet are blocked by food items.

Check if you have at least 120 degree water temperature coming into the dishwasher. Check if the upper rack spray arm is turning during cycle. Does dishwasher sound normal, like you can hear strong water spray inside it?

I am having issues with my dishwasher where it appears to be working but does not clean. Hot water does enter the unit and drains properly but is not cleaning. Muck is still on the door, the arms are wet....


No you need not wash the dishes but just cleaning of the debris and then putting it in the dishwasher for proper cleaning will help you to prevent the drain from getting blocked.

First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter.

Why won't my GE dishwasher get my dishes clean?


IF all appears to be working just leacing film on dishes or if not actually cleaning dishes there could be several things it could be... the basics to start with are first make sure the entering water temperature to dishwasher is a t least 120-140 degrees ... run water at sink prior to starting dishwasher.. next remove drain line from under sink and check for any obstruction where it connects. check the area under lower spray arm for trash/food build up and if you can remove spray arm and clean port out of any calcium build up... make sure the water is filling unit properly run a cycle and when you start unit listen when it stops filling open door and make sure it has enough water in it.

My dishes are not getting clean and there is a film all over everything.


There are many probable causes of failure .

A dishwasher's water inlet valve is its most common part to fail. When your dishes are not being fully cleaned, quite often a faulty water inlet valve is to blame. Test your dishwasher's water inlet valve, and if it is no longer functioning as it should, you will have to replace it.

Water temperature is a key element in achieving clean dishes. A dishwasher's heating element is not designed to heat the water that enters it. Rather, the heating element is designed to maintain the heat of the water that enters the dishwasher. Its a good idea to run the hot water in your sink for a couple of minutes before you run the dishwasher. Just to make sure the water is nice and hot before it enters the dishwasher. If the water is unable to stay hot, it can adversely affect your dishwasher's cleaning ability.


There is a filter in your dishwasher. Its function is to keep large particles of food and foreign objects away from the pump. Many of the newly-manufactured dishwashers have self-cleaning filters, and routine cleaning isn't a concern. However, some other dishw ashers need to have the filter removed and cleaned regularly. If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your dishwasher

Greasy Film on dishes


You need to use something with citric acid in it like a can of frozen OJ or tang, the citric acid helps break up deposits. (run without any dishes in it) Hope it helps.

Spray Arms dont work, dishes dirty after cleaning cycle


Do the spray bars rotate easily? If not, you need to remove the spray bars and clean the insides out (do this even if the spray bars do turn easily.). Also check that where they mount is clean and free of debris.

Check the nozzles and make sure they are not plugged.

Also check that the inlet screen to the pump is not clogged (around the bottom of the unit).

Let me know what you find, and tell me if you can hear water spraying inside the unit during a wash cycle (and do the dishes get wet.).

Clean light flashing


The clean light should be blinking 7 times, pause, then repaeat if it is doing this -- it is a water heating fault. Use one of the following key dances to clear fault

a) Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal

 

b)High Temp-Air Dry-High Temp-Air Dry

All the Leds should light up now just press cancel and Unit should operate. If it shuts down again the heater isnt working properly. Some times the door doesnt get shut well and that causes the fault. But the dishes arent very clean if the heater is not working.
