How does water actually get into the tub of a GE Model GSD2200G00WW dishwasher and to clean the overflow area how do you get it out I have cover off, down to rubber, got some stuff out, ? filter

First--Water enters the dishwasher through the water inlet valve which is the plastic electric valve that the house plumbing attaches to. On GE's its usually under the left front corner once you remove the small access panel. Power is applied by the the timer during the fill cycle. Second-- there is no other filter down in the area you are trying to clean. To remove that rubber boot/sump area you would need to un-install the dishwasher and remove the motor pump assembly from underneath. Here are a couple of things to check for poor cleaning. 1---internal water level---should be about 1/2 inch at door front edge. If not, that inlet valve may be partially blocked and need replaced. 2---water temp needs to be at least 120 minimum. If not hot enough it will not dissolve soap. 3--- look closely at all the little holes in the spray arms. Pay close attention to the end holes that are used to spray out water like a jet engine and spin the arms. Any blocked holes need to be cleaned with something like a toothpick. 4--- check dishwasher at cycle end. If tub has excessive amount of water left inside you may have a blocked drain hose from dishwasher to house drain system. Remove and clean. A small amount of water in sump area is normal but none u near door.

Black rubber pieces falling out of Kenmore Model 13869K602 ?

A washer or grommet is degrading... Start checking the easy stuff: hoses, arms, filters first but it may be anywhere inside the machine. Good luck. A call to manufacturer might give you some places that most commonly see this problem.

GE Dishwasher - loud rumbling/growling noice!

If I am not mistaken this dishwasher has a Clean out at the bottom of the machine that can open .This is here to catch stuff like broken glass and things like that. It has a little fan like blades that act to chop up food that is to big to go down the outlet hose. also look under the machine if you can ,but in most cases you must remove 4 screws to get the bottom kick plate off, Also check all the spinning arms to make sure they are turning correctly. hope this helps

Sink dishwater intrusion

Hello- Find drain hose from dishwasher under sink. Should have gooseneck ~ in hose run to keep water from getting back into dwshr. Does full sink drained all at once push water into tub? Sometimes stuff not disposalled yet blocks drainage. Older motors can tend to become weak with age, not pumping as much water out of tub as it used to.Anyway- Hope this helps- ED

Canot get the diswasher to drain. Tried CLR-no

Hi, please check to make sure which style d/w you have as outlined above. The direct drive dishwashers have a drain solenoid attached to the motor and pump or a separate drain valve that must be checked with a ohm or volt meter. The drain solenoid and valve energize and opens the drain port to allow the water to pump out. For a "no drain" problem, always start with the common stuff first...a kinked or clogged drain hose. The drain hose must be checked and cleaned out and if you have to, remove the drain hose(s) to fully check and clean them. Don't forget the drain system sometimes consists of a self cleaning body that also can get clogged and stop the dishwasher from draining. If your drain hose needed to be lengthened a hose connector was probably used, these hose connectors are slightly smaller than the drain hose and food bits often get clogged there, also the tail pipe piece that connects the drain hose from your d/w to the house drain is also another popular place to get a clog. On the forward/reversing style of dishwashers that won't drain, make sure the motor is reversing to drain the water out. If the motor does not reverse to drain, the motor, wires ( especially where the doors bends to open and close ) and timer will have to be checked. If the motor is reversing and running, the pump impellor inside the motor and pump assembly may be damaged and is incapable of pushing the water out to drain. If the drain solenoid or drain valve checks ok on the direct drive motor and pump, the impellor inside may also be damaged as mentioned above.
Always check the drain spout under the sink for a d/w that will not drain, also if the Air gas is leaking this is a clogged air gap or drain and normally not a d/w problem.

Ge nautilus leak left side

If your dishwasher leaks, check these: Main tub seal Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

  • Lower rack

  • Spray arm

  • Spray arm support

  • Wash/drain impellers

Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 

Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

Black stuff in the bottom of the dishwasher

That black or gray stuff you're talking about is actually a combination of old food particles and soap deposits. The stuff builds up in the corners of the lower front areas of the tub and right under the inside of the door where it closes over the tub front. These areas can develop "scungy" deposits because these are areas that the dishwasher doesn't always clean and/or water remains pooled. A little routine cleaning about once a week around the bottom lip of the door and the door gasket with a damp sponge will prevent this build up. Hope this helps you.
