I imagine your overflow float switch may be jammed, or the flood control sensor isn't working properly. It may even be the controller, there are just many things that can case the same or similar symptoms, but have widely differing causes, one must troubleshoot as per the help websites, or the service manual.
Please find below a Dishwasher troubleshooting how to..

What you need to do, is if you wish to DIY, is obtain a service manual, for your exact make and model. look at the below website to get your service manual.

If you do not wish to DIY, then please call a GE service center and ask for a service call, then ask for a "Quote" for any repair.

GE Dishwasher leaking


HI,
If you're just looking at the machine the problem is not going to be fixed..
and now the question: in witch cycle is leaking?
fill, wash or rinse?
can be...for fill...one hose from filling is broken.
for wash...mechanical seal from wash motor, the plastic manifold,one gasket.
rinse..manifold or hose for the rinse...rinse pump..
for drain..solenoid for drain, the hose for drain..
Anyway you must open the machine first of all and see.

Good luck

Dishes seem to have a powery residue on them after they're clean


Check inlet water quality for hardness. If salt chamber is provided, fill the chamber with salt meant for washing machine.

Use the recommended wash soap.

Check rinse aid and fill if required.

Recently glasses started to finish foggy and


MOST OF THE TIME "FOGGY GLASS" IS A RESULT OF SOAP BUILD UO IN THE DISHWASHER. IF YOU HAVE A WATER SOFTENER AND FILL THE SOAP CUP ALL THE WAY THEN THIS IS THE CASE. FILL A COFFEE CUP WITH WHITE VINEGAR AND PLACE IT ON THE UPPER RACK, RUN AN EMPTY LOAD ON HEAVY DUTY WASH, THIS WILL STOP THE PROBLEM, YOU MIGHT NEED TO REPEAT IT 2-3 TIMES BUT IT WILL WORK, AFTER THAT JUST USE AS LITTLE SOAP AS YOU CAN, IN MY GE I USE POWDERED CASCADE BUT ONLY FILL THE SOAP CUO TO THE BOTTOM LINE, WORKS GREAT. GOOD LUCK

I have a GE GSD2230Z00WW dishwasher water will not fill on start no power on the fill valve either. Water will come on quick wash cycle and rinse.


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

***If everything checks out ok with the water inlet valve, replace the timer or control board.

GE Triton Dishwasher will not drain they water after it's cycle...thoughts?


Peace,
Cut off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes and then turn it on and see if the system resets!
The machine was in your home 3 years , and used for more than that by someone else! I can tell you by the model that its at least 10 years old!
appliances more than 9 years old cost you money to run and fix! Throw it out and do not put good money into bad!

The new ones no matter how inexpensive will wash better and cost you a hell of a lot less to operate. They are so much more energy efficient today that they pay for them selves in a couple of years! With a new machine watch your water and power bill go down!!!
Other wise you need hands on service!
if you got the money do it new!

Bless You!
