Almost new GE quiet speed 2 dishwasher not working properly

We have GE quiet speed 2 dishwasher now one year old is not cleaing dishes. We started it and when it is done we noticed that the cascade powder still stuck to the little box and dishes were not cleanly done. I tried it again after few hours but again it did not clean after runnign through the cycle. We do not use dish washer on regular basis, may be once in two weeks. There were some problems before and GE tech came in, he removed the fan and noticed that a little rubber ring is missing and he ordered one for us. We used it afte that and it was working fine.

Thank you for the assisstance

Look at the spray arms see if they are stopped up look at the little holes in it hot water cleans dishes always make sure you get the water as hot as you can stand it before starting the washer as new washer dont use as much water as older ones so you can fill it with cold water before hot gets to the sink

Why doesn't soap completely dissipate in dishwasher


Usually that indicates a water flow or water level problem. Check the holes in your washarms for clogs and obstuctions. You might want to run a dishwasher cleaner (like Dishwasher Magic) in the machine and see if that helps. Also, if this is a new (less than 2 years old) GE dishwasher, it might not be allowing enough water into it to wash dishes properly. On these new GE dishwashers, a correct water level will come up the beveled or angled part of the filter cap, but not cover it. See the attached picture.

GE quiet power 2 dishwasher doesn't clean dishes anymore. It leaves a film on all and some dishes appear to be not cleaned at all. I do use powder and a rinsing agent


I have all the same problems as EVERYONE on line and nothing has been a solution. This is the worst dishwasher Ive ever had. Usless money with repairmen and parts. My 14yr old dishwasher even survived Katrina (dont know how) but since I replaced every other appliance I bought a new one. Big mistake with this brand. Big!

Dish washer 3 1/2 yrs old making a growling/vibrating sound.


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Maytag Quiet Series 100, Model # MDB5600AWS, built in dishwasher. Does not get the dishes clean, dishes stay dirty after multiple cycles of washing. Please help!


We also have a Quiet series 100 and had the same problem, the dishes always came out dingy or with food all over them. My washer is about 5 years old and worked well for about 4 of them but the last year has been doing a poorer and poorer job washing the dishes. I finally broke down and removed the racks and all of the plastic parts from the inside of the washer. Doing this revealed that the groves in the under side of most of the plastic parts was clogged with food and debris. After a good scrubbing with water and a brush then reassembly it worked like a new washer again, cleaning the dishes very well and the best part is it saved us about $700.00 for another washer.

The dishes don't get clean


Dishes not cleaned properly....
 
  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
  6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
  7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.

GE Dishwasher fills with water but does not "spray water" on dish


Here are a few things that might help you out, first is you could have a bad heating element in your dish washer, when it fills with water it has to reach a certain temperature before continuing to the next cycle, next thing is you could have a bad thermostat, or your timer is defective.

GE PDW9700 - The dishes do not get cleaned


Same as above problem: I have had this dishwasher for less than 4 years and the dishes as of about 2 years ago stopped getting cleaned. I use the recommended dish liquid and rinse and lightly clean the dishes before I put them in.
What a piece of junk!! gs

If it is not filling enough, you may need a new water valve. It may be plugged.
