Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

Hi, I have a GE Potscrubber 600 (with Temperature Sensor) PermaTuf dishwasher. Recently, we had a suds-overflowing-out of our dishwasher problem. (I'm guessing my husband may have put dishes in there with too much soap on them?) Anyways, we got the mess cleaned up, but the dishwasher did not drain (about 3 inches of water at the bottom.) Additionally, the dishwasher does not start. I've read online that if regular soap was in there, that it might be "gunked" up and to put vinegar in there, but this still would not solve the not-starting issue. Please help! Thanks in advance! Marissa

You possibly have several problems. The plunger is broken to the dispenser. You will have to disassemble the door to check the dispenser. Your water not draining is why the dishes aren't getting clean. Check to see if your drain hose is clogged. It may drain at a disposal or through a siphon gap which is mounted to the rear of your sink. Sometimes the siphon gap gets clogged and will cause drainage problems. It sometimes is located at the right or left rear of the sink and has a cap that sits about 3 to 5 inches high. Take the cap off and make sure there is no clog.

there is a new product out that filters the water going into your dishwasher. the film or cloudy white look is caused by hard water. this filter eliminates the problem and is very affordable. you can get it at dishwasherfilter.com. i was amazed how clean my dishes came out after the first load.

SOURCE: water not draining

For starters does it drain at all?If the drain line is connected to the sink drain and you have a garbage disposal,the drain hose could be plugged up.

check for a clogged discharge hose where it connects to the plumbing under the sink...this is the most common area for a clog. if no restriction is found, the discharge valve will need to be tested

How do you remove the sprayer arm from a GE potscrubber 600


Thought I had a problem with the spray arm or pump because water was not flowing enough to spray the upper rack. But it turned out it was a simple part missing: the "check valve" that is in the lower neck of the spray arm assembly. It's a $10 part. Part #WD1X5488 for GE Potscrubber 600.

My ge potscrubber 650 is leaking onto the floor in front of the dishwasher. What is the likely problem?


Check you filter and screen .Check whether you need an replacement for them.


If you dishwasher has foam coming out from under the door, then the problem is that dish soap somehow ended up in the dishwasher or excessive rinse aid . It is not recommended to prewash the dishes before loading them into the dishwasher as only a small amount of dish soap can cause the sudsing that you experienced. Only detergent specifically designed for automatic dishwashers such as Electrasol®, Cascade® or Cascade Complete® should be used. Spilling rinse aid while filling the dispenser will cause sudsing also.

To clear the suds from the dishwasher sprinkle several tablespoons of non-dairy coffee creamer over the suds. The fat in the creamer will help break down the bubbles. Wait five minutes for the suds to lessen.

Many pump leaks happen around the seal on the pulley. Some pumps have a weep hole that lets water drip out when this seal begins to go bad. The solution is to rebuild or replace the pump.

You'll want to confirm that the fill hoses are connected and properly tightened. Always use new rubber washers when re-installing the hoses. Take care not to over-tighten the connection. Other leaks may be caused by the drain hose being cracked, or by a leaky connection at the water-inlet valve. Too many suds may cause the appearance of a leak when actually it's just a sudsy overflow. Sometimes a drain hose leak occurs at the end of the hose where it attaches to the washer. If the hose is long enough you can cut the leaky end off and re-clamp the hose back on. Usually though, when a hose begins to leak, it is best to just replace the hose.

GE Potscrubber disher - water leaks out while filling


I would try removing the cover and make sure the float isn't sticking. On mine the float pushes on a rod that goes through the tub to a micro switch. When you hit it, it probably frees it up for a while. Hope that helps.

I have a GE Potscrubber dishwasher that only hums, won't run


I have a portable that had the same problem. I called a repairman and he turned a fan blade on the motor. Mine is located on the right side about 12" in. It gets hung up when it is run often enough. If your problem is the same is mine all you have to do is turn the blade and it works like a charm. Hope this helps.
