Question about GE GLD5850LC Dishwasher
Our dishes do not get clean and most of the time some detergent is left in the dispenser. GE said over the phone that it was probably a faulty water inlet valve. We have replaced the water inlet valve which did not help. We would like to know how long the water inlet valve is supposed to be open, We have timed ours and it ranges from 40 - 42 seconds for each rinse and wash cycle. Also, the amount of water that enters for the wash cycle is approximately 1.25 gallons. Is this the correct amount? Thanks for any help.
The water should come up about an inch or so below the sill of the machine. It is governed by a float switch, not the timer. The float is located near the front of the inside of the machine. Clean it up and make sure it moves freely. If probably is stuck. It governs the height of the water.
