Dishwasher will not wash

My dishwasher will go thru cycles but not wash dishes

    The dishwasher cleans the bottom portion somewhat, but not great. It does not clean the top at all. It seems like very little water is being sprayed up on top. It also seems to be depositing some dirty scum in the stuff on top. We have run several 'dishwasher cleaners' through the system with no improvement. The inside of the dishwasher appears spotless and no water builds up or collects in the bottom.

Hi

so many possibilities here, a couple possible solutions.. check the sprayer arms to see if they move and check to see if all the holes on the sprayer are clear. check the drain lines they may be clogged or the motor may be clogged or broken.

How to repair - no water is entering the dish waterr


Your dishwasher is equipped with a safety system which is able to detect any operating problems. These anomalies are reported by
one or two wash cycle indicator lights "E" will flash rapidly.

Any flashing combination of LED diodes (Intensive wash, Regular wash, Eco wash, Rapid wash, Soak and Crystal care) means different error code. Take a note of which lights are flashing?

If you have problem with fill water than following two LED should be flashing.24428775-0h3kxpflbez5mdeb5anq3st4-3-0.jpg
In this case could be:
  • Water valve disabled
  • Turbine disabled
  • Control board faulty

I have GE GLDT696TSS. The dishes are not clean and one time noticed water leak from the back of the washer.


You should check the water outlet - probably discharges into your sink through a garbage disposal - the water outlet is likely plugged and water can not discharge down the sink. You can remove the hose and clean it out.

Mold growing on dishes


Recommend that you run another cycle with no DW soap aded, waiting until the dishwasher has filled with hot water and begins to do the first wash cycle. Then add 1/2 cup of bleach to the water and close the door. Allow the cycle to finish. Run it normally with a standard load of dirty dishes. Note: These high efficiency dishwashers count on the "dirt" of the dirty dishes to help wash/clean the dishes. Recommend you not rinse/wash the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.

Watch for any occurrence of the black dots and repeat the bleach treatment.
