Try to see if the filter at the bottom center of the dishwasher is clogged up with food debris and clean up as necessary by removing the screen.

Some kitchenaid models of dishwasher actually have a food disposal built in. But, I think that the GE dishwashers don't have this feature (like Bosch) and require periodic cleaning of the filter.

If a portion of the dishwashing liquid is left in the compartment I would ask the following questions:
Is the compartment blocked by a large dish? Is the compartment opening fully during the wash cycle? And, is the dishwasher filling up with enough water?

I hope that you can rectify the cleaning situation with your dishwasher.

SOME USEFUL KITCHEN TIPS.....!!!


1) To get much cleaner and sparkling dishes just add few tablespoons of VINEGAR to your
dish-washing detergent....Vinegar is a master in cutting of the grease that helps in getting sparkling dishes easily.

2) To clean the spills in Oven just sprinkle some salt over hem immediately. After the oven has cooled
down, brush away the spills with damp cloth.

3) Smelly sponges are a real mess....to clean them just clean them properly and thoroughly and then microwave it
while its wet. Once you see steam arising from the sponge take it out...and be CAREFUL as it will be too hot.
Wash before reusing it, with water. Be sure that there are no METAL components in the sponge.

4) For removing lime build up and hard water from a teapot, just add 1-2 cups vinegar to some water in
teapot and bring it to nice boil. Sim for 10 minutes and then rinse it out.

5) OLD STAINED SINK....To clean and whiten it just add half cup of salt in it and then scrub it
with a lemon over it to get a sparkling sink as new.

Unable to eliminate odour from previous cooking despite the fact that I wipe the microwave with a soapy cloth & then with a clean cloth each time to Microwave is used


  1. Fill a plastic bowl with 1 qt. of warm water. Add 2 tbsp. of liquid dish soap and 1/4 cup of chlorine bleach to the water. Thoroughly mix the solution.
  2. Dampen a clean cotton rag in the solution. Wipe all inside surfaces of the microwave with the soapy rag to remove food debris and stains. Scrub stubborn residue with a nylon scrub brush.
  3. Moisten another cotton rag with warm water. Wipe the microwave surfaces with the rag to wash away soap and loose food debris. Thoroughly rinse the inside of the microwave.
  4. Dry the microwave's interior surfaces with paper towels. If odors remain in the microwave, fill a microwave-safe bowl with 1 cup of cool water. Add to the water 2 tbsp. of baking soda, half of a chopped lemon (including pulp and rind) and four whole cloves.
  5. Place a microwave-safe plate on the microwave turntable. Set the bowl on the plate.
  6. Heat the microwave on high for three minutes. Operate the microwave according to the manufacturer's directions. Keep the bowl in the microwave for 15 minutes.7
  7. Remove the bowl from the microwave. Wipe the microwave's interior surfaces with clean paper towels to remove steam moisture.
  8. Leave the microwave door open overnight to completely air out any remaining odors.

    Turntable stopped turning


    This is quite a common problem and often associated with a recent spill (boiling over) of liquid in the microwave. Liquid overflows the glass dish, onto the floor of the microwave and down the hole where the drive motor that turns the plate is located. Liquid runs down the shaft of the motor and into the drive motor which then stops it functioning. Because the drive motors on most microwaves are induction motors, and not driven by a traditional armature with brushes, about 75% of the time you can fix this by drying the motor out (Though this depends on the liquid spilled).
    You will have to get into the underside of the microwave, often this means snipping a bit of the casing directly under the drive motor (Which is of course directly beneath the drive shaft that pokes up beneath the glass plate).
    Once you gain access, you will see the motor clearly and it is usually held in place by 2, 3 or 4 screws, unscrew from mountings, unplug the power wires (They usually have a couple of wires from the motor with a little plug on the end that you can pull out).
    Give the motor a good shake to remove any liquid and then go put it on top of your boiler, in your airing cupboard, out in the warm sun or even (If you trust yourself not to cook it!) in your oven on a very very low heat. Leave in the warm place for a day (not that long with the oven option!!) until it is thoroughly dry. To test, plug it back in, but don't bother to reassemble yet. Turn on the microwave and see if the spindle turns. If it does, it's fixed, if it doesn

    BREAKING MICROWAVE SAFE DISHES


    I would recommend having it looked at. Sounds like the magnetron or the maser is malfunctioning and not operating within it limits which could be potentially dangerous.
