My GE diswasher that is only 1 year new, does not stop running. I start it at 1pm and it ends at 7pm, the countertop gets really hot and the soap does not seem to dispense. Any idea why? something I can do before placing a $200 service call? thankyou

Re: GE built in dishwasher
YOU ARE UNDER WARRANTY SERVICE FOR ONE YEAR! And if your a week over or a little bit, GE will still make good on it! Do not wait! Monday call GE! Why is it $200 for service call? $75 is what we pay! look for a new guy if they want here in fixya.com are service people, too! Don't run this. it is a fire hazard if it's doing this! Bless you

So you have an airgap ? if you might have a clog . if you are not sure dind were your drain hose runs to . usally it is under your sink cabinet , you can unhook the end of the drain hose and put in a large bucket and dorce drain your dishwasher. if no luck take the filter screen out from the bottom inside and look for broken glass or whatever would prevent a drain. oh get a wet vac to remove water so you can see what you are looking for. Also listen for a hum when you force drain if you do not hear anything call for service, pump is dead or not getting voltage
You need to replace the piston assembly check valve (see http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-gsd5500g-%3d%3di821081&PartID=821081). This part is beneath the rear filter frame. You then twist it out. In my dishwasher the little rubber valve piece had completely disintegrated. That allows water to be pumped back into the dishwasher rather then being emptied out the drain house. I replaced the little rubber piece with a piece of plastic cut from a milk jug bottle cap. My first attempt wore out after about a year. I just replaced it again. Works like a champ. Or you can just order the part you need from repairclinic.com
Push these buttons in this order High temp wash > Heated dry>High temp wash >Heated dry all the lights will come on and this will reset the board and run it through a short test cycle but more than likely it will come up again,It's a failure in the heating cycle either the heater itself or the turbidity sensor which sits mounted up into the tub right behind the drain pump...hope this helps
You can find them on a label on the tub wall just inside the door. However 99% of all DW are a standard size and the difference is made up by adjustments of the threaded leveling /adjustment legs.
Standard size is 24" x 32-36"...you can take a tape measure and measure from the floor to the bottom of the countertop it is to be installed under...and then measure across the front of the DW. you should find my measurements to be within this range unless it is a custom unit.
Hope this helps. ...good luck and good day...The Fang
1 make sure heated dry is on. 2 run your cycle and when it says drying open the dishwasher. see if it has steam coming out. 3 give me your whole model number. 4. if heater is not turning on then you may have one of three issues. 1. Bad door switch 2. Wire off element or bad thermistat 3. No power going through the control. to the heating circuit.
