What do you mean "bottom blade"? Do you mean the lower wash arm? There is no "adjustment" built into the dishwasher, but if it's hitting the heater element (or its supports), you might be able to bend it slightly. If it's hitting the lower rack, make sure your rack has all of its wheels attached, and that it's not bend down.

Ge gdwt260r10ss won't drain

Probably one of two different things can cause this problem. Your dishwaser drain could be clogged you can take off the the drain and try to see if it is clear by using a vaccum cleaner reversed to try and blow air through the drain if clogged the air will be strickly hammpered or not getting through at all, if this is your problem then starting at the filtered drain and work your way to where the drain enters the house hold sewer. The blockage will some where between these points. The other possiblity is that the drainiagepump on the dishwasher is bad, you'll have to referre to your owners manual in order to see what it say about testing or replacing the pump. Hope this helps.

On most dishwasers if you take off the bottom panel and look up inside by the water valve you will find a schematic.It's always folded up into a really small piece and tucked into a small black plastic bag.

GE Twenty-Eight Hundred Dishwaser says blocked washarm, but isn't Code C5

If you've checked that nothing is in the way (no spoons hanging down, etc) just press and hold start and it will start up again and probably won't reoccur for the rest of the cycle. Our dishwasher started doing this near the end of its life....

I have a GE PDW8060GSS dishwaser. The washer does not turn on. The "anti bacterail" swith keeps blinking. There is some water standing inside the washer. Tried draining, but water keeps coming back. Not...

If after draining water comes back then you need to check the waste water system for any cloughs. Problem might even be at the dwelling drainage system as any blockages would prevent water from going out from washer. Check the waste hose, filter and pump. clean them all if needed.

Best of luck
