GLD6500 Series Dishwasher -- soap dispenser has

Yes that's normal for that machine. The soap has to be washed out of the soap drawer by the top spray arm turning, and that's usually the problem - the arm isn't turning. Check both spray arms for blocked jets at the very end - remove blockages with a pin and water flow from tap. In the worst case, you may need a new spray arm - but they are usually cheap. More points to remember - on a rapid 30 minute wash program only, if you are using wash tablets, don't put them in the soap drawer as there wont be enough time for them to dissolve. put the tabs in the cutlery basket. Also - a dishwasher is not a garbage disposal unit, and uneaten food must be scraped of plates before putting them in the dishwasher. Run a dishwasher cleaner through now and then, or do a full program wash with nothing in the machine to clean it out and to keep spray arms clear.

My gld6500l dishwasher worked fine, then my

Yes probably a connection. The dishwasher drain connects to the the Garbage disposal . If the line is kinked then the dishwasher will not drain. Plus the dishwasher has to have a plug knocked out where the drain line goes into the garbage disposal. I am sure this is your problem.

Open the door quikley while the washer is running. Is the spray arm spraying up and rotating. If not you may have a bad seal under the spray arm or a cracked one.

GE Dishwasher door trim loose on top right corner. What adhesive can I use to reattach it?

What you need is a permanent bond. Anything else is temporary. Contact cement will work. Is can be messy to work with but it’s the best solution for your problem.

GE Profile Dishwasher about 7 years old.

The washer doesn't pump water in--plumbing water pressure forces it in when the water inlet solenoid opens the valve. Check the water inlet solenoid--they are a common failure point. Look under the front of the washer behind the panel to find it--just trace the water inlet line. It connects directly to it. The valve can be stuck shut or, more commonly, the plastic coil form of the solenoid disintegrates. In any case, just replace it. Don't forget to shut off the water supply valve under the sink before you start work. Hope this helps!

GE dishwasher rinses, but won't fill for wash cycle

It could be a failing water inlet valve or the main control board. If it does it every time you try, it is not the water inlet, it is the Control Board. Unfortunately both parts are obsolete. Time for a new one or search for parts in stock somewhere. https://www.partselect.ca/Models/GDT545PSJ0SS/Sections/Body-Parts/?ModelID=6882101&ModelNum=GDT545PSJ0SS&mfgModelNum=&ManufactureID=2&Selected=35592F79C4D18354271BEB350E3C0B86DA4AF3F2&Position=1&mfg=GE&Type=Dishwasher&Mark=1 https://www.google.com/search?q=GE+dishwasher+GDT545PSJ0SS+parts ..

Check the dishwasher to door seal for any defects or debris that maybe interfering with the maintaining of a proper seal.

GE Dishwasher makes loud banging noise

Check the stainless steel cover on the bottom of the lower rack sprayer. If it has been bent downward on either end, it will hit the inside panel of the door near the bottom. It may score the panel as it hits on each rotation of the sprayer.

Just bend it back in position, carefully, with a pair of pliers. The technique required is similar to bending the pocket clip of a fountain pen back into the proper position after it has been sprung out too far. You might practice on a pen or mechanical pencil clip to see what I mean.

GE Potscrubber 640 Dishwasher. How long does it take before the water starts running in the dishwasher? Can hear the motor, but not any water.

Check under the sink and make sure it is not shut off there. If there is water pressure to the unit then you could have a sticky inlet valve, no power to solenoid on that valve or a bad solenoid, a sticky overfill valve or a bad control board.
