How to remove bottom screen in dishwasher.

I just moved into a house and it looks like they washed their yard tools in the dishwasher. I have a GE Triton and I can't figure out how to remove the screen at the bottom.

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

SOURCE: GE Triton dishwasher won't drain.

It sounds like the drain pump has gone bad.

First, unplug the unit or turn of the breaker, then remove as much water as you can with a wet vac if possible.
Remove the panels from the bottom of the front of the dishwasher (removing the big door won't help you) Then, disconnect the drain hoses from the pump (squeeze the hose clamps with pliers), any remaining water will come out when you do this, so you might want to put a thick towel underneath.

Pull out the wires—use pliers so you don't yank the wires out of the plugs, and remove the pump. Look inside and make sure there is nothing stopping the propeller- you may need to unscrew the pump from the plastic housing check.

If there is no blockage, it has likely just "gone bad" but to do one last check: take an old, two wire extention cord and carefully connect each wire to one of the prongs on the pump (make sure no stray wires "dangle" by using electrical tape if you need to) and plug it into a wall outlet.

If the propeller spins, something else is wrong with the machine but if it doesn't, you need a new one.

How do I remove lower spray arm

Pull out the lower wash rack. Using a flat-bladed screwdriver, CAREFULLY pry the 2 tabs at the bottom of the washarm so it can move up and over the "hold-down plate" Be careful! Those tabs have a tendency to break off, especially the older the dishwasher is. You may be forced to buy a new wash arm.

My GE Nautilus dishwasher keeps PUMPING water "out" of the machine during the entire wash cycle. I have removed all covers in the bottom of the unit to see if anything is stock. Used vinegar and CLR to...

If this convert-able dishwasher is permanently installed, you will have to take off the lower access panel to get to the pump area. If it is still in a portable configuration, it may be easier to lay the dishwasher on it's back or side to do this. Now, examine the pump / motor assembly. There is not a separate water pump on this model. There is a diverter pump out solenoid which get's pulled down to direct the water out the drain hose for pump out, which is suppose to spring back out of the way to allow water to go up to the spray arms for washing. I suspect that the solenoid got to hot and the plunger will no longer slide in the solenoid. If this is the case, you can replace it with a WD21X802. If the arm and plunger move freely, check the spring, or for obstructions in the pump housing, or possibly the diverter arm in the pump housing has come loose from the shaft. The solenoid is the most likely.

Maytag MDB3700AWE bottom wash arm does not move Freely by hand

Yes, the wash arm should spin freely. Recommend that you remove the arms and search for what is stopping it.
In addition to hard water, the ultra-cheap dishwasher powder really does/can leave calcium-like deposits behind. Use brand name powder for 30 days and you will see a difference. Never use gel or tablets in any dishwasher.
Adding a whole-house water softener would eliminate 90 % of your problem. The other 10% will be taken care of by not buying ultra generic powder.

My GE dishwasher after complete washed look like water not out drain (water remain in the tub)

Normally, there is a filter that precedes the pump and that's probably clogged with food by products. Look for the filter screen near the bottom of your dishwasher and remove any debris there.
Another consideration is if your dishwasher drains into/ through your garbage disposal... If so.. make sure that is empty and drains properly when you run the water in the sink. Hope that helps....

GE Max Dishwasher won't drain

I had the same problem with my GE Max model gsd6260k. I could hear it trying to drain and some small amounts of water going into the sink drain pipes but it never emptied it all there was aprox 1/2 inch of water that's 1.25 cm aprox for the metric lovers... lol
What i did was...Clean out all debris that was there.
There is a small basket (aka screen) just behind the bottom arms just a tad to the right i lifed it up enough to get a turkey baster into the opening (drain?). I coudn't seem to find the screws without taking all the bottom apart to get the basket out, as the water line going up the back to the center arms is there. Then i used the baster to remove water and i kept squeezing the air forcefully from the baster into the hole. This help, i don't know if it was a clog or what but i let the tub start to fill with water and then hit the start button again which makes it drain out. It was definately draining faster. when it finished there was no more water in the bottom of dishwasher.
