Dishwasher jets not working

I have a brand new GE 18'' in counter dishwasher. It was installed over a month ago and when I just tried to run it, it goes on but not washing the dishes. I checked the water supply and it feels like water is running into the washer.

Any ideas?

Check the actual water values to make sure they are turned all the way on.

    The dishwasher must still be under warranty if it is only a month old. I would call for a service call.

Dishwasher does not start


I had this problem and solved it by merely switching the associated circuit breaker off and on again. Something of a "hard reboot." Annoying ... and ... if it happens repeatedly (tonight was the first time), someting I will pursue fixing while hte d/w is still under warrwentey (It was purchased/installed less than three months ago.)

Recent changes in the law prevent soap makers from putting phosphates in dishwasher soap so they're not as effective as the were even a few months ago.  Unfortunately,  the solution is more thorough rinsing before loading.

We replaced the pump in our dishwasher about 18 months ago, now it does not get the dishes on top clean and there is still soap in the dispenser.

Glasses are cloudy and cutlery and dishes are not clean. using cascade with dawn powder. dishwasher is brand new, installed one week ago


Sorry to hear your having problems with your new dishwasher. Please review your owners manual for great tips for the best results on cleaning your dishes. Here are a few steps to take to get your dishwasher working:
  1. Run you sink water for 3 min on hot before you start your dishwasher. This allows warm water to enter the dishwasher and helps aid in sanitizing and cycle time. Remember water entering must be at 125 degrees.
  2. If your using power detergent be sure to use rise aid. All new dishwashers require this additive for best results.
  3. If you have hard water your going to need a dishwasher cleaner and use it once a month. I recommend dishwasher magic. Kills 99.9% bacteria and leave a great scent. I use it myself.

Soap does not all desolve during wash cycle, there is always some left in the door. we use cascade. this dish washer is new and we have always had this problem.


this could be caused by hard water depending on where you live. Make sure you always use Jet Dry, run the hot water on your kitchen faucet for a few minutes before you start the dishwasher and if that doesnt work there are a few different dishwasher cleaning products out there. This one works good: http://www.finishdishwashing.com/product-finish-jet-dry-dishwasher-cleaner.php.

Just installed new dishwasher top rack will not slide in


I had the same problem with my new GE. They installed 2 brand new upper racks.$$ it worked ok for about a month and then I had to force it in again. on the 7th repair call in as many months my repair guy walked in the door stating that he finally knew how to fix the problem. It is caused by poor design in the wheels. they are porous and the detergent breaks them down and they swell. new wheels from an older model fixed the problem. they have RND on the case.
