Question about GE 24 in. Profile PDW9880JSS Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

PDW8281 will not drain. I was able to take the bottom propeller off but can't figure out how to get the rest of the grill off the bottom to inspect it for clogs. I assume it's blocked with gunk and want to try and manually remove what I can before trying the baking soda/vinegar trick. Can you point me to a diagram or something that shows me how to get at it without breaking something (most of it is plastic). Thanks.

SOURCE: LEAVE MORE WATER THAN SHOULD BE

There is a drain hose that runs from your dishwasher to underneath your sink. (usually connects in right below the drain spout)

It sounds like this may have become clogged, or the sink drain is clogged causing the water to back-up in to the dishwasher drain hose.

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not drain there is a bunch of

Most likely a bad drain valve solenoid.
It is attached to the side of the motor.
The GE solenoids tend to burn out.

SOURCE: GE Triton won't drain completely

Hi Tina! (say Hi to the Family, too)

Your drain hose from the dishwasher (DW) was installed incorrectly after the DW was moved back into place. Good news!!! Easy fix. All it takes is a 5/16" nut driver (or socket) and some vinyl electrical tape.

Look under the sink, you'll see the white drain hose hooked up to (most likely) your disposal. You'll notice that it just kinda slopes downhill 'til it disappears through the cabinet, right? Well, the slope in question is actually the culprit! It's siphoning water from your sink and down into the DW. Everytime you run water in the sink, some of it goes over to your DW instead of down the drain. Go figure, right?

Here's the fix... You have to re-route your drain line to make it have an upside down "J" in it before it connects to the disposal.

Use your 5/16 and loosen the clamp at the disposal and remove the hose. Pull on the hose to get as much slack as you can from the DW and into where you're working. Now route the hose between the sinks (the recessed area there underneath) and THEN into the disposal. Now tighten the hose clamp to secure the hose to the disposal. For extra measure, use your tape to secure the hose to a water line in the back by the water valves.

Seriously easy job, Tina and Family. Maybe 15 minutes.

Very easy repair. By dropping the hose gravity takes over allowing the water to run out. The buzzing noise is the propeller on your pump jammed.(Brawires,coins,hairpins) < common causes.. STEP 1:Drop hose down to remove water from machine STEP 2:Lean machine forward on a 45,rest machine on a chair.

It is on the bottom of the engine. Lift up the deck and look under it. Make sure there's no grass covering it up.

Refrigerator Door Lost Suction


I have a GE Profile Stainless Steel side by side. I also noticed that the refrigerator side door was not sealing like it had previously. There was no "suction" when opening. I started inspecting the gasket around the door to see if this needed replaced, as I had read that may be the problem from this forum. My particular model has the grill / vent at the bottom of the door, in the front, which just pops off. I found that down by the grill my model has magnets there that match up with magnets on the bottom of the doors. I inspected this and found a foreign object had attached itself to this magnet. I removed this object and waaahlaaah the door now has suction! I was relieved to find that I didn't need to replace the gasket. Worth a try. Hope this helps.
