Question about GE Dishwashers

1 Answer

My dishwasher is a Profile Quiet Power II and is 8 years old. There is one person in my household, so it has not had a lot or wear. The issue is that the flatware and glasses do not come out clean. The flatware is often smudged and the glasses are cloudy. I have changed detergent several times and adjusted the settings and hot water. There is a self-cleaning filter. I am contemplating buying a new dishwasher but wonder if I would benefit from a service call.

    Thanks, Daniel. I think I will work with this some more. Your suggestions were excellent. I just purchased Affresh from a local dealer who was convinced that I did not need a new dishwasher. How do you add vinegar to the rinse water? Do you just open the machine at some point? I do have a whole-house water purification and softening system in my house. At one point I really increased the heat for the water. Are you saying that it not necessary?

    Thanks again,

    Carole.

Hi

White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed. It may also be due to mineral deposits on the heating element. Inspect the heating element for any deposit and scrub it with a soft brush when the dishwasher is unplugged. Try filling detergent cup half way and use white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Run a cycle with glasses and see if there is any difference. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results. You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle.
Check if the dishwasher’s spray arms are working fine and all the holes of the arms are clear. Now try using a different detergent like gel or liquid based detergent to see if it helps. Sometimes, the dishes are left unclean when the dishwasher is not filling in properly or when the water pressure is low. Check for water pressure and water inlet valve. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

    Hi Carole,



    While the dishwasher is in the final cycle, pause it and add some vinegar. Also try cleaning the heating element if you are able to access it. And, high heat sometimes damage the heating element and also causes the minerals to deposit on the element. Use a cup filled with vinegar and let it be there for one cycle. Most important thing to remember is that you use half detergent than you use normally . Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

    Thanks
    Daniel

8 year old jade dishwasher has suddenly become very noisy


Eight years is a lot of dishwashing. There are hoses, belts and gears- all of them wear- and the noise is part of the result. Especially when it works hardest.
I doubt it can be repaired for less than its is worth

Won't start?


Good Morning Lisa - Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. Wait roughly ten minutes and turn on the dishwasher. Confirm that the door is properly latched and try selecting a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: wiring failure, damaged cord, faulty door latch assembly or control board. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the dishwasher to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

I have waited 24 hours for a response to my problem about the Whirlpool Quiet Power II dishwasher leak. Please respond. Thank you. Clisten Wells Indianapolis


Clisten, maybe no one had an idea for your issue...You did not mention what the issue was, specifically, in THIS post....be sure that you are using the correct detergent, anything but automatic dishwasher soap will cause leaking...

NORMAL Wash light is blinking and I can't CANCEL wash. GE Quiet Power II PROFILE dishwasher. Started a normal wash and a few minutes into it the NORMAL light started blinking and can't find a way to reset.


We had the same issue with ours...tried turning off at the breaker, still didn't reset. Contacted appliance repair who came in and unplugged it from underneath the sink, waited a few seconds and plugged it back...dishwasher reset and repairman charged trip charge and labor $65 BUT problem is resolved and we now know what to do in the future.

Quiet Series 100


It sound like a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Check if pump spins when it should force the water up into the sprayer arms. In case it doesn't spin you should replace the pump. Good luck !
