Question about GE 24 in. GSD4020Z Built-in Dishwasher
Can anyone help me?
GE 720 Potscrubber I started with the water puddling in bottom now it progressed to leaking on the floor. I had a repair guy come to my home yesterday and he says a broken seal and my total cost to replace seal and labor is $165 plus tax.
What is the life expectancy? He did not sound too promising about the future of my dishwasher and said he is certain there will be another repair need shortly something related to the water saturating an area underneath the dishwasher?
He reccomended I call Sears and replace with a Whirlpool product. He claimed he put his kids thru college repairing GE products. My husband wants to repair and I dont because of fear of spending more money!

I would try removing the cover and make sure the float isn't sticking. On mine the float pushes on a rod that goes through the tub to a micro switch. When you hit it, it probably frees it up for a while. Hope that helps.

If you turn it on and hear a slight hum after water fill the motor is locked from non use. You will need to remove bottom panel and with power off you will see the motor right in the middle near the front. This is called a side winder motor because of how it sits. There are some blades you can turn to unlock the motor. Once the motor breaks loose which you will be able to tell when it does, turn power back on and let run thru complete cycle with heat dry in the off position. GE are about the only ones out there that will do this and it is usually from lack of use. Hope this helps.
