Question about GE 24 in. GLD6200L Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

GLD6200 NOISY We have above unit approx. 2 years. It just started having a "rumbling noise" when running (all cycles}. The floor even vibrates mildly. It works fine just annoying - it used to be very quiet. Everything I know how to check seems fine. Do I need a repairman ?

The sound is almost always caused by a worn docking cone “O” ring on the main conduit. When the docking cone “O” ring wears, the mid level spray arm conduit is no longer constrained and it can vibrate against the docking cone, making the “growling” or vibrating sound. Use a plastic wire tie to quickly verify if the growling noise is coming from a worn “O” ring. Snug the mid
spray arm coundit against the upper rack with the plastic wire tie. Run the dishwasher. If the noise goes away, you have verified the presence of a worn “O” ring. Remove the wire tie when the test is completed.
The recommended repair for this problem is to replace the WD12X10059 (titanium) or WD12X10121 (grey) docking cone. These parts supercede to the full main conduit. It is not necessary to replace the full main conduit for this problem. Remove the docking cones from both the existing and new main conduits. Install the docking cone removed from the new
main conduit on the existing conduit still installed in the dishwasher.

Dishwasher starts in any type of cycle, runs for a minute, then shuts off as the lights blink out.

in general your wash motor can cause that. It gets old and you can hear the wash motor making a rumbling noise when it turns on. The increased load with cause a thermal coupler to turn the unit off.

Noisy drain pump on FDB635RF?

Two questions: 1) Are there filters that need to be cleaned on a routine basis with the FDB635RF? and 2) What causes the scum left behind on glasses and utensils? I use a rinse aid, but doesn't seem to be helping. This is a recent problem.

Dishwasher making loud noise during wash cycle

It's noisy If your dishwasher seems noisy, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Heater fan
Water-inlet valve An aging water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once. It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this, replace the inlet valve. 

Motor If it's the motor that's noisy, either of these may be the "culprit:"

  • As motor bearings wear out, they can become quite loud when the motor runs. They wear out quickly if they frequently get wet, because the water washes away the motor bearing grease. Bearings can get wet if the spin seal is defective. Then there will also be water leaking onto the floor beneath the dishwasher. Replace the seal if it leaks (read about the main tub seal in the "It leaks" section, later).

  • If, from beneath the dishwasher, you can see a round, plastic disc that's mounted to the top of the motor (a "slinger"), it may have broken free of the motor shaft. If so, it could be rattling around the shaft while the motor is running. If that's the problem, you need to replace the motor.

Heater fan If the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.

Pump Small fruit pits, toothpicks, and fragments of glass sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this happens, open the pump and remove the debris. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. 

To get to the pump, you usually need to remove the lower rack, the spray arms, and the spray arm support from the inside of your dishwasher. A dishwasher pump isn't obvious. Look for an impeller--a round, plastic fan blade-type device that spins around and pushes the water toward the drain. When you can see the drain impeller, you should be able to see the clogging debris.
thanks and accept the solution accordingly

There is an O-ring they may be missing on the upper wash arm in the back or there are plugged jets in the wash arm(s). Check both.

most of the noises you are talking about happen often when something is down in the sumpyou need to take the pump apart and you will find something small in there causing the noise! i see if very often and common for this unit.

My dishwasher has been running for 4 hours!

The long cycle is caused by the heater not heating the water or not having enough water in it to heat. It is normally a slow fill valve in the unit. The best way to check is to start a cycle and let it fill to see how much water is in it. If you add a little water to it and it pumps better you will know you have a water supply problem.

Noisy dishwasher

This is a known issue for GE dishwashers and may be similar for other models too.  The fix is simple.  The noise is due to vibration of the arm for the middle sprayer.  Just secure it with a tie wrap or wire and the noise should be gone.

Refer to the following link for my earlier response to a similar issue which fixed the problem.
