Question about GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Our GE Dishwasher (GSD3400G00BB) has sat for several years prior to just installing it. We have the water hooked up and turned on! But when try and run it no water makes it inside to clean the dishes. Any Thoughts on what is preventing the water from making it to the cleaning area? Thanks Brian

Make sure the spray arm is actually rotating and the jets aren't clogged. You should be able to hear the arm rotating when the dishwasher is operating.

Otherwise, perhaps the pump is plugged or not working and the water isn't "jetting"

Sounds like you have an excessive build up of hard water (mainly calcium) in it. Clean it like this: Close the detergent cup cover. Run hot water at the sink to clear cold out of the pipes. Start the machine on pots and pans/added heat. Wait about 10 minutes and open the door. If the detergent cup cover flops open, it is in the main wash. If it is still closed, let it run a few more minutes, check cup cover again, keep dong this until the cover is open. Once it is open it will be in the main wash (the longest cycle) and at that time put in about 2 cupfulls of Tang orange drink in the bottom of the tub. Tang is very high in citric acid and will clean the calcium and other hard water deposits from the tub, pump, spray arms, ect... Make sure your hot water is HOT (130 is great) and use Cascade Complete powdered detergent from now on. Should take care of it... Repeat every 6 months to keep it clean.

There is a new product out that actually filters the water going into your dishwasher. My dishes came out amazing after the first load. No more cloudy glasses. I was very impressed. Who knows whats in the water cleaning your dishes so i thought this filter was great. It is very affordable and you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. Hope this helps some people.

Why won't my GE dishwasher get my dishes clean?


IF all appears to be working just leacing film on dishes or if not actually cleaning dishes there could be several things it could be... the basics to start with are first make sure the entering water temperature to dishwasher is a t least 120-140 degrees ... run water at sink prior to starting dishwasher.. next remove drain line from under sink and check for any obstruction where it connects. check the area under lower spray arm for trash/food build up and if you can remove spray arm and clean port out of any calcium build up... make sure the water is filling unit properly run a cycle and when you start unit listen when it stops filling open door and make sure it has enough water in it.

Do these 'portable' dishwashers 'heat' water prior to washing? i have customer complaining bout the dishes not coming clean..yet the water entering the dishwasher is cold, does not appear to heat water...


Most dishwashers require a minimum 120 degree inlet water temp. The heating element will boost this up during the main wash cycle to aprox 140. Do not hook a dishwasher up to inlet water temps above 150.

Hello Wes. Begin by installing a new o ring. Take off the old one and take it to a hardware store to get the correct replacement. Also pick up a little tube of O ring lube.

The easy way to fix it would be to empty it and run a quick wash. hopefully the latch is just stuck and it will open up.

Please remember to rate me.

Ge dishwasher hums but will not work. is a 1999 model,,seldom use


When you use your dishwasher so infrequently the water inside evaporates and allows the pump seal to dry out, so there is no longer the lubricating water there. You may be able to solve this by pouring a couple cups of hot (not bioling) water directly into the center of the lower wash arm (center spray tower) and letting it sit for several minutes.
If that does not work, you can take the bottom panel off and turn the fan blade on the motor by hand until if turns freely. (don't do this with power to the motor or you may have some nasty banged up fingers !)

To prevent this from happening in the future, keep some water in the dishwasher by poring a bit in every now and then, or by running a fill and pump cycle at least once a week or so. If you are away for extended periods, you can try adding RV antifreeze to the dishwasher while away.

check water level is ok. check its heating. open door when in operation and check if spray arms are rotating. if not, take them out, run water into centre hole and check water comes out of jets. note the spray arms only rotate with water coming out of angled jets at end
