Question about GE 24 in. Profile PDW8280JSS Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

The ge profile dishwasher model PDW8280J10SS was purchased about 2 yrs ago. It was working fine up until Jan. 2009. It ran fine but the water stopped draining. I read were you should run the garbage disposal prior to running the dishwasher. I drained the water and did this. It worked fine for a while then the problem was back. Once again, Drained all the water, sucked it out with a turkey baister, moved the dishwasher and checked hoses etc. Once again, it worked fine for about 10-14 runs. It now does not drain no matter what we do. Help!!

It is probably clogged at the pump or before. See if you can get outlet hose off the bottom before the pump.

My GE Profile doesn"t drain completly, leaving about 2" of water.


Sounds like a water level sensor is on the fritz. The drain valve is probably opening if the level drops at all.

Dishwasher wan't fill with water


The water valve may look fine but the solenoid may not be opening to allow water in. You said that everything else works fine except no water supply to the dishwasher. This sounds like a bad soleniod valve. Check for continuity on the valve with an ohms meter after you start it. Be careful.

WATER NOT FILLNG IN GE PROFILE DIHWASHER


Hi,
It ended up being a simple fix. Soap had dried on the floater (water sensor device) and it could not move, therefore no water was going in. I poured hot water and vinegar into the washer and ran a complete cycle and it is working fine now

GE Profile PDW8280J10SS: Water won't drain. I


Can you get the water to drain at all in any cycle? If you can, then its possibly the control module .

If you can't get it to drain in other cycles or when you cancel the cycle, then its a possible clog in the drain outlet hose, drain solenoid, or screens.

Here is a good detailed link to check out that explains about it:
