Our Ge profile Dishwasher is not cleaning the upper level dishes, mostly glasses and coffee cups. The insides are bumpy with dried on food. We have cleaned the bottom filter.

We have a GE Spacemaker XL 1800 Microwave. There is dirt and moisture that has collected between the inside and outside glass. How can you clean this?


HELLO.

This is the solution to the cleaning issue.

1. Wipe the microwave inside and out with a soft cloth dampened with a warm, mild detergent solution. Rinse with a soft cloth dampened with plain water. Dry with a soft, dry cloth.

2. Put 2 cups of water into a 4-cup measuring cup. Place the measuring cup in the microwave, then heat on high for 5 minutes to loosen food particles that are stuck to the inside walls. Leave the measuring cup inside the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes, then remove and wipe the interior as in Step 2.

3. Remove the glass turntable and wash it in the sink with mild detergent or in the dishwasher. Handle carefully, as the turntable is breakable.

Thanks.

I own a GE Profile Trition quietpower III GSD5940F00SS dishwasher. The dishes, particularly the mugs and cups, are not getting clean.


Your sprayer arms may be clogged. You can remove them by loosening the screws holding them in place. Flush them with the sprayer at your sink. If you can SEE residue (parts of paper labels, bone fragments, fruit peel pieces, etc) remove them with a tweezer.Reinstall the spray arms and see if that works.
Three more ideas:
(1) run a cycle without dishes OR detergent and use 1/4 cup of white vinegar instead. This will break down soil and "gunk" and help your dishwasher run more effectively.
(2) use an old toothbrush and clean the underside of the door INSIDE the dishwasher. The door will be open and you just brush the bottom of the open door on the INSIDE of the dishwasher. A lot of "crud" gathers there and can be redeposite on your dishes. We seldom think to check that area.
(3) the pipe that carries water to the upper sprayer arm MUST fit against the outlet in the back of the dishwasher. If it is dislodged or not seated properly, the water won't flow to the upper sprayer arm.
Hope one of these suggestions helps. If it does, please rate my suggestion. Thanks.

I have a GE Quiet Power 2, Model: GLD5560L00SS that suddenly is leaving all dishes and glasses dirty with dry scum stains. Is there a filter that needs to be changed?


Its not a filter that needs to be cleaned, the scum is a result of dishwasher detergent. You need to run a dishwasher cleaner through it. First fill a cup with white vinager and place it on the upper rack, then run a cycle with no other dishs in the unit. The vinager will be displaced through out the cycle and help to get the scum to go away. I had to do this 4 times to get the scum to go away. You can also use "Dishwasher Magic" and that can be found at most hardware stores.

Some of the dishes and glasses are not coming clean


Either the nozzles on the spray arms are clogged, or there is not enough water pressure spraying.

Dishes in top rack not getting clean


If you live in an area with 'hard' water (having more than 5 ppm) you may require a whole-house treatment system to eliminate the mineral content that will wreak havoc with any water-related system (including your water heater).
If that is not the case I would have a service call to check the upper level service arm, which must be pushed in to a hole in the back of most units in order to get the water to flow in.

they must have changed the way they treat the water in your area. those spots are caused by hard water. www.dishwasherfilter.com has a product out for this problem. it filters the water going into your dishwasher leaving them spot free and crystal clear with every load. you will love the way your dishes look.

GE Profile Dishwasher (5 years old); Leaving residue on dishes


In my case the counter mounted breather for the drain tube was being restricted ... finally to the point it would not drain the tub at all. I disassembled the above counter drain assembly and cleaned it out as it wass completely blocked and things work very well again. I would suggest this foirst as it is an easy task and is done 'above the counter'.
I then ran 2 cups of CLR with wash cycle ... no dishes to clean out the rest of the washer as on dissaembly of the internals to diagnose they were and very scummed up with a hard white crusty substance that was completely blocking some of the drain sump performations.
