Water is not spraying well while dishwasher is running. We had a service call and the technician cleaned a trap clogged with food near the water pump. I think the same thing happened but do not know how to access the trap.

You have to remove the sprayer arm, it's cover, and the cover underneath that located on the bottom of the dishwasher, inside the dishwasher. If you find a large amount of grease/food under these covers then you are not rinsing your dishes enough before placing in the washer.
The disposal unit in these units are nothing more than a cheap metal blade spinning over a metal grate. Anything tougher than a piece of cake and it's frosting runs the risk of breaking the gears that drives this.
Clean all the food/grease that you can access. Be careful while removing the gunk, I have found glass shards from broken dishes. Locate the disposal impeller and screen. It can be removed. Inspect it for damage and reinstall after cleaning.
Your water flow can be restricted if this is plugged.

Dishes not clean


It sounds like two possible problems.
1. A clog in the water system from previous food is restricting the spray pressure of the water.

2. Water pressure pump that provides the spray wands pressure is either stuck or inoperable.
Without spray pressure and the hot water, the food is gonna stay.

Dishwasher is not draining. how do you unclog? Removed all screens and traps, can't figure out where the clog is?


Those models commonly get food stuck in the spray arms. I would suggest you disassemble one or both and check for clogs there.
If you've checked all the screens and traps (and spray arms) in the dishwasher, have you checked the water flow in the hose to the sink and at the air gap (the small metal cylinder that sits on many sinks)? A dishwasher is typically connected to the air gap, then a short tube goes down and connects to the garbage disposal (if one is installed). The hose running from the dishwasher to the sink can become clogged as well. An easy way to check it is to tap the hose or pick it up close to the dishwasher. If it sounds full or is heavy, you've probably got a clog in the hose. If you do, be careful when you go to clear it, because the hose is full of water.

FOOD PARTICLES ON DISHES


Hi

If your dishwasher is cleaning poorly, check these:
Water-inlet valve Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it.

Internal filters Every dishwasher has some type of filter to keep large food particles and foreign objects away from the pump assembly:

  • Most modern dishwashers have self-cleaning filters that don't need any routine cleaning.

  • Some have filters in the bottom of the dishwasher that you need to periodically clean. You don't need any tools to remove the filter, and cleaning it is easy. Consult your owner's manual to determine which type you have and its maintenance requirements.

If your filter is clogged, it may be causing the cleaning problem.

Drain valve Some dishwashers have a valve (or gate) that should open only during draining. If debris lodges in the valve, it can't close properly, so water drains out during the wash cycle. Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposer. If yours does that, listen for water flowing into the disposer during the wash cycle. If you can hear it then, the drain valve may be clogged.

Spray arms There's a spray arm at the bottom of your dishwasher--it may have a tall spray tube mounted to the center of it. There may also be a spray arm located directly beneath the upper rack of dishes and/or above the upper rack.

If debris is blocking the holes in the spray arms where the water comes out, it could cause cleaning problems. Regularly inspect each of the spray arms and clean out the holes as necessary.

Water temperature To get the best cleaning results, the water entering your dishwasher needs to be hot enough. Try running the hot water in your kitchen sink for about 30 seconds before starting the dishwasher, to pre-heat it. Also, if your dishwasher lets you select a higher wash or rinse temperature, try that to see if it helps.

To check the temperature of the hot water that comes from your kitchen faucet use a waterproof thermometer. If the water isn't 120 degrees Fahrenheit, your dishwasher may have trouble getting your dishes clean. You could increase the temperature of the hot water to the whole house--and therefore the dishwasher--by adjusting the hot water heater thermostat.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Detergent cup Dishwashers don't perform their best if detergent is introduced only at the beginning of a cycle, so add detergent to both parts of the cup.

If the detergent cup isn't opening, see the "The detergent cup doesn't open" section, below.

Its a GE dishwasher and water is left in the bottom of the dishwasher. I have run it through its cycle twicw it sprays water around in the dishwasher but doesnot want to drain.


There is a solenoid valve located near the motor which should activate to either drain or to spray. These often get jammed up with food particles. Locate it and take it apart. Clean out what ails it and put it back in service.

Dishwasher spray arms don't spin & spray water


Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper broke or food chopper filter screen clogged.

Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.

Inspect food chopper:
1. Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm.
2. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover.
3. Remove primary filter
4. Remove food chopper cover to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage or blockage.

The top rack is not getting clean.


This is one common possibility
It may be the food chopper assembly. Mine broke last year from a toothpick,
the food doesn't get chopped because the blades are broken, then the filter clogs and water wont spray high enough.
Heres a test--turn on the dishwasher and wait until you can hear water running then open the door really fast and look at how high the water is spraying--there should be alot of water all over the top rack running down
