Question about GE Dishwashers
I have a GE dishwasher (GHDA485N00CS) and the cleaning performance is slowly getting worse. There is often food still on the dishes and at the bottom of the tub (around the water intake). I can take the main rotor off, but I can not get the intake grid off to inspect things because of the water tube supplying the upper rotors. Any help would be appreciated.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Is the top sprayer clean and not clogged so that the water can flow through? The top may not be functioning properly.

I bought a replacement filter and that dramatically cut down on the amount of "specs." Now there are only a few in some of the glasses. I also cleaned out the drain underneath the screen, there were peas and corn in there, I just used a shop vac to **** them out. Seems to be much better now, I think a good inside cleaning of the washer will help out too. Hope this helps...

Now is a good time to remove the spray arm and the filter/strainer underneath it. Clean everything you remove in the sink. With a flashlight, inspect everywhere in the sump area and remove debris (watch out for broken glass!) Inspect the impeller, making sure it is not broken and that is spins freely. While you are in there, look carefully at the heating element for damage and breaks.
Reassemble and test. If it continues to leave a film on the dishes (especially visible on the glassware) suspect the heating element (no kidding) If it is not heating during the final rinse and drying cycle, that is your main problem.
If problems continue when the heating element is working, then the wash motor is failing and needs to be replaced.
Good Luck, please post back here with what you find, OK?
