Question about GE Tritonr XL GSD6260JCC Dishwasher

3 Answers

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that all of the sudden stopped cleaning well. I now find food residue on the dishes, and the detergent cup does not empty completely. I use the gel detergent, and I just see the gel dripping down the door after the cycle is complete. This machine is about 5 years old, and I'm looking to see if it can be easily fix. I rather not have to call someone to tell me that I have to get a new one, or pay more to fix it that what it is worth. Thanks

    The water temp seems ok, but it looks like there is not a lot of water inside the machine when the cycle starts. Not sure what the level should be

Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

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.

Also
try placing a packet in the bottom of the DW and then start a wash cycle ( use the energy efficient cycle that does not use the heater to dry the dishes..).. if it is not dissolved at the end of the cycle then your water temp may not be hot enough..Hope that helps..

We bought a new dishwasher because we were finding a hardened residue was being left on our dishes, it was ruining our dishes. Although we have a brand new dishwasher this problem is still occurring and...


My best advise is to reduce the amount of detergent to the least amount that you can use, and still get the dishes clean. We do rinse the dishes a bit, as the soft food disposer isn't made to act like a garbage disposer, but rather, to catch incidental food residues. We no longer fill the closed detergent dispenser. We sprinkle about 1/2 of the normal amount (that goes in the open cup) on the inside door and close it up. Our dishes get very clean, with no residue. Also, use a good drying agent as this will help sheet the water off of the dishes. It may take several cycles to see improvements, but you should see improvements nonetheless.
Best regards, --W/D--

Detergent left in dispenser cup


You either do not have enough water getting itno the machine or it is not hot enough. 5 years old so I would suspect a plugged screen on the fill valve.

Left over soap residue in glasses


you need to flush out the dishwasher, fill a cup with vinager and put it in the dishwasher standing up, then run the dishwasher thru a heavy duty cycle with no dishs. Then cut back on your soap, with new dishwashers and soaps you dont need much at all

Detergent trouble


hi there,

sounds like the detergent dispenser is not working properly.

are the rest of your dishes clean? in other words, is there any food residue on them?

check the dispenser and make sure that there is nothing visibly wrong with it.

if the problem still persists, replace the dispenser.
