Question about GE Dishwashers

1 Answer

Dishwasher works fine except that after the drying cycle, water slowly builds up in the bottom of the dishwasher. It did this a few years ago for several months, but then it stopped doing it altogether. I did nothing to fix it. Now it's started doing it again. I run the dial around to a point where it drains, let the water drain and then turn it back to off before the drying cycle begins.

Hello,
This would mean that the dishwashers water valve has failed. This is a simple repair to make yourself. The lower access panel would need to be removed, four screws. You can purchase the part from the link below.

Dishwasher slowly fills after cycle


If water slowly fills in the tub when not in use.

a) Most likely your machine inlet water valve not seating properly and closing. Change the machine water valve.

b) May be sink drain water back flowing to the tub. But you have checked that.

So it has to be the machine inlet water valve.

When the cycle finishes, there is water in the bottom of the dishwasher this begins to smell


there is some kind of clog in the drain system. clean the screen in the dishwasher, there gets a build up of food, or misc stuff in there. it is probably draining, but slowly.
the dishwasher usually has a pump that pumps the water out with force, but if clogged it will be slowed down and when the cycle stops there will be water left in bottom

hope this helps

Cloudy film on dishes


Dishwashers have a part usually called a separator or accumulator which traps the dirt from the water during the wash cycles while the water is continuously recycled to clean the dishes. At the end of the cycle the separator is flushed out and the trapped dirt goes down the drain. If it doesn't get flushed out the dirt builds up till it starts showing up on the dishes. Some separators have a hole on top and one on bottom with a valve which stops up one hole or the other depending which cycle it's running. The valve can be stuck or broken causing the problem. It's located inside the dishwasher under the spray arm. Part 7 on this diagram. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5170559&diagram_id=1332418#d1332418

KUDS01FLSS0 Dishwasher - tub slwoly filling with


Slow fill of water is due to the strainer clogging. Strainer is located on the body of the machine where the inlet water hose is connected.

Clean all the water flow tubes in the machine.Clean the solenoid valve opening also.

Dishwasher wan't fill with water


The water valve may look fine but the solenoid may not be opening to allow water in. You said that everything else works fine except no water supply to the dishwasher. This sounds like a bad soleniod valve. Check for continuity on the valve with an ohms meter after you start it. Be careful.

Sounds like dishwasher is running but no water coming out (there are no broken pipes or leaks)


I had the same problem. The motor is working (humming) and my dishwasher goes through the whole cycle without water. I googled it and found it on a website. Sorry I don't remember which website. Basically, it said to put some hot water in the bottom of your dishwasher and add some citric acid. I added 2 small packets (2 oz each) and filled the bottom of the dishwasher with hot water until it covered the motor or the drain of the dishwasher and left it overnight. The next day my dishwasher started and ran perfectly fine. That was over 4 months ago and I have not had any problems.
