Question about Dishwashers
I took out the drain unit in the bottom of the dishwasher to clean it.
1. I took off 2 hex bolts(screws) and an oval white plastic cage(about 1' tall) came off.
2. Next, two white plastic parts came out. One has an oval top about 1" deep. The other white plastic part is also oval and has 2 screens going down, perpendicular to the top.
3. I gently pried the 2 push washer-like grips off the front of the large bottom screen in order to clean under it.
1. I wasn't paying attention when I took the 2 white plastic parts out and need to know how to put them back in. Yes, next time I WILL pay attention! I can't find a diagram on the web and GE customer service is not open.
2. Can I reuse the little push washer-like grips to secure the bottom screen? If not, can I take them to Home Depot and get some new ones? Or a local plumbing place?
Hope that you can help me.
Good Day Sherry, GE has used several different designs in the past couple of years. It would be helpful it you could list the model for your unit. When you open the door and glance on the left side.. what you're looking for would be a gray label about 1 inch wide and 4 inches long. It will say Model and be something like PDW8200... or GSD5900 that way, we would be able to identify, which particular drain system is used for your particular model. Can we start with that..?
