Question about GE 24 in. GLD5560LSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My dish washer isn't cleaning the dishes well. There are little particals inside of every cup and on dishes after it is done. I just emptied and and now I'm running it with bleach. But before I started it I looked at the drain hose under the sink. The drain hose had water in it. The drain hose is going uphill from the dishwasher to the sink so I don't know if this is normal to have some water in the drain hose when the washer completes since it's not would have to pump uphill to get to the garbage disposal or does this mean there is a clog in the drain pipe? It's still under warranty. Should I get it fixed?

try washing without dishes with a cup of vinegar or get a product at the store call dish washer cleaner that you use it in and empty dish washer to clean and remove smell.

Mould on inside of washer


The water may not be heating up. Does the DW feel warm to the touch when it is washing? How long do you leave dirty dishes in the machine? Do you empty the clean dishes right away. If you do not you should open the door a crack to allow the steam and moisture to escape so the dishwasher can dry itself.Some people who don't have a lot of dishes don't wash them often enough and this can happen. You should inspect the inside of the diswasher for food debris build up even in the little holes of the arms, which you can pull out with needle nose tweezers.You can't use bleach to clean it. Nor any other household cleaners.I would clean it with very hot water mixed in a little bucket with some dishwasher detergent. You don't want to introduce any other kind of detergent into it. I would clean it thoroughly, using a semi rough washcloth then use a clean cloth to rinse it off with hot clear water. Then I would run a full cycle with no dishes in it.Maybe even twice. I hope this is helpful!

Foul odor coming from dishwasher and drain after running.


Hello. Begin by pouring drain cleaner into that drain as per the instructions on the bottle. Then, pour two cups of white vinegar into the dishwasher and run it on it's longest and hottest cycle, empty of dishes of course. The vinegar will clean and deodorize your dish washer. Regards, Joe
PS kindly rate my answer. Thank you.

My Frigidaire dishwasher is leaving soap, a lot of soap, on dishes under where the dispenser dispenses. It just started hapening. Also, it has always left a light film on the clear glasses.


I scrubbed the screens with a brush and added two cups of white vinegar to the bottom of the washer, then ran it. Cleaned up nicely. I most likely will add a cup of vinegar once a week.

Dish Washer soap does not dispense during wash


You don;t list the make and model number or its aproximate age.
The simpelest cause is switching to an ultra-cheap dry detergent. Recommed you use a name brand powder (like Electrosol or Cascade) Never use gel or tablets, ever.
Check all spray arms for blockages. Now is a good time to remove the filter (non trivial but do-able on most dishwashers.)
Clean empty dishwasher by filling a bowl or large cup with white vinegar and placing it in the dish rack. Run a short cycle with no detergent added. You may need to repeat.
If problems persist, the pump motor is probably failing. Schedule a service call or consider replacement of DW. Good Luck!

Bad smell


Try running washer empty with soap or tablet in the regular cup and baking soda in the secondary cup. After cycle is complete and somewhat dry inside leave slightly open to allow air circulation overnight. This should help.
