Question about GE 24 in. GSD3900L Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher I have a GE dishwasher model GSD3800G00WW for mobile homes. Problem is the water is not getting the signal to fill, and my tech looked at it yesterday and checked out motor, water pressure, etc and determined that there is no power to fill switch or solenoid (not sending power to float switch) I have tried to locate a repair model for this model to no avail and need some advice as to what is the solution to this problem and what part do I need? Thanks, Dana

    Thanks I'll tell him that.......I also had an GE TECH suggest tapping on the flat value but he tried that and she suggested the pump seals might need lubricating and to flush out the system with vinegar and water. (as I have extremely hard water) So I am trying that first and will tell tech your advice.

Dana, on some of these GE's the power to the fill valve goes through the push button assy. WD21X10110. I have had a couple like this. Doing this from memory but contacts 1&3 need to be closed on that switch. As long as the tech verified power out of the timer, have him check the push button assy. back.

GE Dishwasher Model # GSD2400N00WW Starts but I do not get any water. How to check for the problem? Thank You!

First check under the sink to see it the supply valve is on. Next listen to the unit when it should be filling, do you hear and spitting, or water sounds? If not the inlet valve may be bad or the inlet valve screen may just be full of debris from the hot water pipes (common problem) and needs to be cleaned. It is possible as well that the controller, or timer is not giving a signal for the valve to open but this is less likely.

No water going inside, but water to dishwasher fine

If it is supposed to be the filling cycle and you have no voltage to the water fill soleniod then a timer contact is not making connection or there is no voltage to the timer relay. Fix it!

Ge Triton XL Dishwasher Fill Problem

I would check your fill valve screen, where your water line connects to the dishwasher, lots of times i will see that screen clogged, especially on customers homes that have wells.

There is no way to change the fill time on these.
There is also the potential problem with the float sticking if it is gunked up it will not allow water in...see that it moves up and down freely and you should here a clicking noise.....If it is not one of these there could be a problem...with the timer...I am providing a link that will help walk you through this problem in a more technical...manner...if you are not comfortable performing these tests...i suggest you forego it and let a tech handle it.... (

this is one continuous can scroll down until you see the won't issue.
I hope this helps ..good luck, have a good day& please rate my effort......The Fang

GE Portable Dishwasher won't fill/cycle

In a front corner of the tub is a float switch that raises up as the machine fills, then shuts the water off. when pumping water out the float drops and enables the fill solenoid valve to work when signaled by the timer circuit. Make sure the float is free to rise and fall. The residual soap may be holding the float up. Run some cycles without soap to clean the tub, manually clean it out if necessary. Make sure the water supplied to the machine is at least 129 degrees to get good cleaning and prevent soap build-up.

The Motor is running but will not fill with water. I checked the water supply and drained the water out but it still will not fill with water.

>Motor is running
>not fill with water
>machine "thinks" it is already filled with water because motor is running

>manually fill with water to proper level and close as needed...until machine commences next phase
...if no machine shows no new actions after above has fulfilled, then the main controller circuit is somehow bad
...if machine does advance to next step, then you have a faulty signal from water level switch...could be bad switch or wiring to it.

Help the water on my dishwasher is screwy.

The problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side on most models), in which case replace the water valve.
