GE GSD2200G02CC dishwasher

My dishwasher will not clean the dishes. When the dishwasher was run (I was not there) my roommate told me that "stuff" backed up into the sink. Now each time we run the dishwasher, the dishes do not get clean. (I think someone did not rinse the dishes properly and there is a clog somewhere.) I tried to run the dishwasher with out any dishes. I don't think it filled up properly. When I opened the dishwasher door, it was wet but there was not a puddle of water at the bottom. However, there were peices of food inside the dishwasher. I thought I would try to clean the filter out, but then someone told me that there is not a filter for this dishwasher and that I probably need to replace the water valve. Does that sound right? If so, how hard is this to do? thanks, CL

Your dishwasher probably has rotating blades on the top and bottom that spray water on the dishes.  Clean these off and make sure the holes are not clogged.

Water backs up from the drain in my dishwasher and smells. what is the problem?

Two things can cause this problem:
1. The check valve in your dishwasher may be defective, allowing water and food debris to seep (or run) back into your dishwasher.
2. Your drain hose may not be "mounted up" the way it should be. Look under your sink. Look at how your drain hose is connected to your garbage disposal. If the hose runs down to the floor of your cabinet and into your dishwasher, that is wrong. Instead, it should be mounted up so that water from the sink and garbage disposal would have to flow up first to get into the dishwasher. If you do this, then even if you have a bad check-valve in the dishwasher, it will prevent the problem (or greatly reduce the problem) of dirty water flowing back into your dishwasher.

What dial should we put the dishwasher on as its not washing the dishes clean

try cleaning the dishwasher, sometimes the scale from the water clogs the jets so it will not clean as well. I put a cup of vinegar in and run through a high heat wash to clean mine. they do make dishwasher cleaning stuff as well. high heat or pots and pans setting.

Filter stops up on dishwasher

it is working correct, the salesman told you there was a disposal in the unit, there IS NOT. scrap and rinse your dishes prior to starting, also run your sink to get hot water prior to start. the heater is not for heating water.

Dish soap is leaving a build up on the interior of the dishwasher

Hi. Run your hottest and longest cycle with no soap, no dishes and 2 cups of white vinegar. Also, run the hot water into the sink before starting the dishwasher. Once the sink water is as hot as it gets, then push the start on the dishwasher. J.

My dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes.when the dishwasher is done there is still stuff on my dishes. if you cancel the cycle the water in the dishwasher is cold

If the machine used to work fine then I'd suggest running the hot water in your sink before starting a cycle to ensure the water entering your dishwaher is hot. If you then are getting hot water and still dirty dishes try reposting for a a solution. When re-posting, include your make and model for a better answer.

My dishwasher is not cleaning my dishes the inside of my dishwasher is thick with white residue

hello. I can help you. Make sure your dishwasher is empty. Then pour two cups of vinegar into the dishwasher. Next run the hot water into your kitchen sink until it is as hot as it gets and start your machine. Run it on the longest and hottest cycle you have..

This will clean your machine. Repeat the process with more vinegar if you need to.

Once your machine is clean, be sure to always run your sink water until it is hot before turning on the dishwasher and also rinse your dishes. good luck with it.
