Check you filter and screen .Check whether you need an replacement for them.


If you dishwasher has foam coming out from under the door, then the problem is that dish soap somehow ended up in the dishwasher or excessive rinse aid . It is not recommended to prewash the dishes before loading them into the dishwasher as only a small amount of dish soap can cause the sudsing that you experienced. Only detergent specifically designed for automatic dishwashers such as Electrasol®, Cascade® or Cascade Complete® should be used. Spilling rinse aid while filling the dispenser will cause sudsing also.

To clear the suds from the dishwasher sprinkle several tablespoons of non-dairy coffee creamer over the suds. The fat in the creamer will help break down the bubbles. Wait five minutes for the suds to lessen.

Many pump leaks happen around the seal on the pulley. Some pumps have a weep hole that lets water drip out when this seal begins to go bad. The solution is to rebuild or replace the pump.

You'll want to confirm that the fill hoses are connected and properly tightened. Always use new rubber washers when re-installing the hoses. Take care not to over-tighten the connection. Other leaks may be caused by the drain hose being cracked, or by a leaky connection at the water-inlet valve. Too many suds may cause the appearance of a leak when actually it's just a sudsy overflow. Sometimes a drain hose leak occurs at the end of the hose where it attaches to the washer. If the hose is long enough you can cut the leaky end off and re-clamp the hose back on. Usually though, when a hose begins to leak, it is best to just replace the hose.

My GE Potscrubber Model GSD2230Z04WW is not dissolving the soap. I have already replaced the water inlet valve.


Check your wash arms, and make sure the holes are not plugged. Also make sure they are free to turn. Next,remove the toe-kick panel, and look for leaks or signs of leakage. Sometimes (especially if your tile floor doesn't go all the way back), dishwashers will leak most of their water out and you never know it! Other simpler things is to make sure you are not blocking the soap dispenser with large pans or plates.

Hi,
The pump seal may be the problem. There are a number of places on the net where you can get step by steps and the the parts to replace the seal. Some recommend just getting a new motor pump housing which is 150. I just purchased the impeller assembly (it has all you need) and it cost $25 with shipping. Only thing is I did not realize I also had a leak in the solenoid stem valve. Let me know if you need the link I was talking about.

Ge potscrubber 650 Dishwasher is humming when turned on and will fill but not wash and drain


This happens when the DW goes unused for a while. The motor is stuck. Open up the lower panels and move the Motor Fan by hand until it moves freely. This worked for me until a seal broke.

Freeing the motor may break the seal between the motor and pump assembly. I'm in the process of replacing that now.

Check for leaks by running the DW before putting the lower panels back on.

On ours, the leak was on the right side, and it turned out to be a failure in the seal around the soap dispenser.

GE Potscrubber disher - water leaks out while filling


I would try removing the cover and make sure the float isn't sticking. On mine the float pushes on a rod that goes through the tub to a micro switch. When you hit it, it probably frees it up for a while. Hope that helps.

Dishwasher


GE 720 Potscrubber I started with the water puddling in bottom now it progressed to leaking on the floor. I had a repair guy come to my home yesterday and he says a broken seal and my total cost to replace seal and labor is $165 plus tax.
What is the life expectancy? He did not sound too promising about the future of my dishwasher and said he is certain there will be another repair need shortly something related to the water saturating an area underneath the dishwasher?
He reccomended I call Sears and replace with a Whirlpool product. He claimed he put his kids thru college repairing GE products. My husband wants to repair and I dont because of fear of spending more money!
