Question about GE Tritonr XL GSD6260JCC Dishwasher

3 Answers

Triton XL GE Profile Dishwasher does not wash dishes well, but in particular, leaves a cloudy film.

We noticed in our operating manual that there should be a water hardness test strip included. None was found with our dishwasher. This might be a start in determining the problem with the dishwasher. Is this something you could send? Do you have any other suggestions?

Thanks

I have the same problem. I noticed that it the heating element was not working either. I assumed that there is not hot water and is not drying the dishes either. Washing with cold water usually does not work as well. How can it be fixed? Maybe replacing the heating element....?

The problem is most likely that there is still water residue at the bottom of your machine. If the machine is not fully drained it picks up some of the residue and sprays that onto the dishes during the final rinse, leaving an unhealthy and unsightly film on everything.
Remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

Does not clean the dishes


Hello, I can help you. With the dishwasher empty, toss in two cups of white vinegar and run the machine on its longest and hottest cycle. This will thoroughly clean the machine.

Now put in a load of dishes, be sure to run the kitchen faucet til the water is as hot as it will get and then start your machine.

I got a layer of white cloudy film on my dishes after normal wash


Doing a full vinegar cleaning of the diswhasher is a good start, and every 6 months or so if you have hard water.
But, I have proven that using ultra-cheap dishwasher powder will cause this problem too. Recommend after you do the cleaining with white vinegar through a quick cycle with no detergent, you use only a brand name powder (like Cascade or Electrosol) and see if problems persist.
If problems remain, the heating element has probably failed. Once it is replaced, you will see a dramatic improvement. Good Luck!

If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
Drain line/air gap Aclog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reasonthat a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point wherethe drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drainline. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hoseor hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting thedishwasher again.

Pump Yourdishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directlyto the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You canreach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to removethe lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.

Lookfor an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spinsaround. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through thespray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which issimilar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impellerpushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up thepump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replacethem.

Drain valve and/or solenoid Manydishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. Whenelectricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts thewater to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever,sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly.Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you mayhave to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, themotor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drainvalve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse thedirection of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't havea drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to thepump housing.

Belt One brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen off, replace it.

Motor Ifthe motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First checkto be sure you have power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section"It doesn't work at all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it mayneed to be replaced.

Some dishwashers are susceptible togetting stuck if you don't run them regularly. If you haven't run thedishwasher for more than a week, you may need to manually spin themotor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it.Dishwasher motors can't be serviced.

Timer Partof what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If thetimer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need toreplace the timer. This problem is uncommon.
As for testing water hardness, you can find these at your local plumbing store, or even the electricals where you bought the dishwasher from.

Hope that helps!

GE Triton XL Dishwasher


My Triton XL soap dispenser still has a clump of soap after the cycle has finished. My glasses are left with a cloudy film, and my silverware is left marked with film on it. I have cut down on the amount of detergent, and have not overfilled. I have also tried using white vinegar as the manual states. Any suggestions? Thank you
