I have a GE Quietpower 3 dishwasher and let me tell you it is the worst dishwasher, hands down that I have ever owned. It is not quiet and it certainly does not have any power to clean anything. Or so i thought. After reading a few of the posts on this site it dawned on me to check the drainage. I took the whole drain assembly apart. Cleaned all of the gunk out of it. Then went for the drain hose. It was just about a clean as it was brand new. Then i reexamined the drain and found that it did not drain into the Garbage disposal like I am use too. Instead it had to make an immediate 30" climb into a PVC drain that sat just below the underside of the countertop. I rerouted the hose to dump into a bucket and ran the dishwasher. Guess what??? All clean and no residue. I am off to Lowes now to get the clamps and such to drain the dishwasher into the disposal. I still think this dishwasher is the worst I have ever owned and think GE should give that Six Sigma save a few pennies on one DW and the company can save hundred of thousands, at the expense of a customer spending hours on fix-it sites to find out the company cheapened the pump, a rest! However, for all of you that just want to fix your dishwasher, try draining it into the Disposal now before you blow your pump out.

Yes without doubt this is probably some thing in the impellor of the water pump at the bottom of the dish washer..Take the stainless strain tray out of the bottom of the dishwasher and there is a sprung clip holding down a shaped plastic cover at the r/h rear. Move this to one side remove the cover and you will see the impellor.

First clean the sprayer arm of all debris. In the back of most dishwashers there is a screen on the bottom that is often full of junk, debris and other stuff from dishes not being scraped off.
Clean that screeen off.
Run vinegar (1 cup) for a full cycle to help break down the lime and other build ups.
Check sprayer arm for debris and other objects. carefully pick it out with a small needle or sometimes even a nail works.
Try running dishes again to see if this helps.

I just took mine apart (bottom turntable, screen, etc.) and I was disgusted by the grime and gum that was clogging everything. I think it was keeping all the water a gritty white, which constantly left residue. I am currently running a load... hope that the "clean" dishwasher actually washes my dishes now!
