I have a triton xl model @ gsd6200g00bb serial #va790400b. The dishes on the top rack are not getting clean. I have removed the top, and middle, and bottom arms cleaned calcium out of them. Removed the screen below the lower arm cleaned. The top and middle arms are still not spinning during wash cycles. Where do I go next?

Apart from the spray arms themselves there could be other reasons why the water is not getting up to the middle and top arms.

The distribution circuit from the wash pump that feeds the arms could be blocked or the wash pump itself is not developing enough pressure to push the water up. I am assuming the dishwasher is taking in water at the start of the cycle and you can see water at the base.

The distribution circuit to the middle and upper arms can be viewed in this diagram.
The part 585 carries the water up from the wash pump circuit

The wash pump circuit s shown in this diagram.
The pump is part 310 and the water is distributed to the upper arms by part 450.

Your dishwasher has got a turbidity sensor which checks if the wash water is dirty. If so, it drains the water out during wash cycle and lets fresh water in. A reason for not enough water circulating in upper arms could be the drain is happening faster than the inlet water is getting in which can cause a nett drop in water circulating in the dishwasher. Question - do you hear drain pump running when the wash is also happening?

Hope we can solve the root cause of the problem.

Top dish rack dishes don't get clean model 8575637


Most dishwashers have a rotating spray bar underneath the upper rack. Over time bits of food can clog up the holes and then dishes won't get clean in the upper rack. Check to make sure all the holes in the spray bar are clear and that it is rotating freely.

Check that the arms spin freely when spun by hand, then check the outlet jets at the trailing end of the arms are not blocked with food particles and other solid matter. This often happens and the arm is unable to turn because the water jet that is supposed to drive the arm does not have the force to rotate it with the result is that the upper dishes do not get enough water and chemicals. It may also cause water to continue dripping onto dried dishes after the the drying cycle has stopped.

We have run the dishwasher through several cycles, there is no water whatso ever getting to the top rack of dishes , the bottom rack is pretty clean but the top is dry like it has no water at all


Try unscrewing the top and middle arms and soaking them in vinegar or CLR to remove any calcification that could be blocking the spray holes. If that does not work there is a blockage somewhere between the middle and top water feed. and the entire casing needs to be taken apart to verify where it is.

Dishes on top rack don't get clean


The following suggestions will greatly enhance the ability of your dishwasher to clean all of the dishes thoroughly:

1. Rinse all of the food off of the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.

2. Run the hot water into the sink until it is as hot as it gets before you start the dishwasher.

3. Do not pack the dishes into the dishwasher, just put in a reasonable number without crowding or stacking them on either shelf.

4. Pull the top shelf all the way out to be sure that the water connection at the rear of the top shelf is connected. Sometimes, this connector comes disconnected preventing the water from entering the top spray assembly.

THese things should make a huge difference.

Good luck with this and please rate my answer. Thanks. Joe

Makes a funny noise


I had the same problem with my Triton XL Model # - GSD6660G02SS Dishwasher. I tried adding water, zip tied each wash arm (one at a time) and had no positive result. Then I noticed a notch on what is called the docking cone. It supplies water to the middle wash arm. When the upper rack is pulled out you can see the cone at the back of the washer. Anyway I put a rubber O ring on this notch and the noise stopped. I can't tell from the parts list if the O ring is supposed to be there or not. Maybe a GE repair tech can confirm this. Hope it works for you as it did for me.

GE triton dishwasher middle spin arm not spinning


I had the same problem and found two things which were causing it
-The O-ring was missing off of the tube connection on the back of the dryer that inserts into the sprayer tube. I found a size 11 O-Ring at Home Depot and it worked
-The openings on the underside of the spray arm are what propels the sprayer to spin. I found small pieces of plastic debris in the openings and cleaned them out.

Now the middle arm spins like it should.
