Question about GE 24 in. GSD6200G Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher fills partially, stops, and then heating element comes on.

I started my dishwasher last night and when I checked it this morning all the dishes on the lower level were coated with dish detergent. So I started the dishwasher again but it only filled with water for approx. 1 min. It stopped and did nothing. I hit the reset button and it drained normally. I tried to run just the rinse cycle, but the same thing happened. We noticed a funny smell, so I opened the washer and discovered that the heating element had kicked on. It drains well, but will not fill completely and progress through the cleaning cycle???

The problem would be on the pressure switch or inlet valve

Even when we rinse dishes before we put them in the dishwasher, they come out pretty filthy still. Is there something we can do?


my mother suggested this to me.
run the hot water tap in the sink that the dishwasher taps into .
So that the water going into the dish washer is going to be hot !
the other thing was that the plastic coated detergent block thing may need a longer wash cycle setting so that the plastic covering dissolves completely to clean the dishes more .

Water hardness could be an issue .
dish washer may have a slat reservoir and a water hardness setting . Check the dish washer manual for water ph level adjustments.

Smeg DI 409CA Dishwasher - Doesn't wash properly, tablet doesn't desolve and cycle lasted all night


Hi,

The first thing is have a look at the instruction manual from HERE

If the dishwasher is not washing properly then please follow these steps:
  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
  6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
  7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.
As you said that the water builds up at the bottom see If it comes out 'foamy' then liquid dish soap is getting introduced into the dishwasher. Liquid dish soap is different than automatic dishwasher detergent. liquid dish soap needs to be COMPLETELY rinsed from anything that has been pre-soaked prior to putting in the dishwasher. after a couple of regular cycles the foam will go away. Nowadays liquid dish soap is also 'concentrated' or 'ultra concentrated' which doesn't help.


If further this does not solve your problem the the only solution is to get it repaired.

Goodluck..

The dishwasher runs through it's cycle but does not clean the dishes properly and leaves a cloudy film and smears on the inside of the machine and the dishes


    Common Problem
  1. Confirm the wash water is hot
    1. Try heated wash(sani wash) if available
    2. Run hot water in sink to warm up before starting
    3. At least 120 degree Fahrenheit water temperature
  2. Open door check wash arm position start washer for a minute
    1. Confirm wash arm has rotated
    2. Check for plugged spray tips at either end of wash arm.
    3. Use small tweezers to remove
    4. Check for rack and dishes interfering with arm rotation
  3. Place cup in upper rack with opening up cycle washer.
    1. Confirm that cup quickly fills with water
    2. Not washing check water level in tub mim 1 1/2 inch
  4. Discontinue use of rinse/dry liquid additive.
    1. Confirm rinse/dry additive not leaking from dispenser into tub
    2. Washer detergent contains sparkle additive and too much sparkle/rinses/dry additive will coat dishes
    3. Try alternative wash detergent that contains minimal rinse/dry additive and use without liquid rinse/dry additive.
  5. It will take several wash cycles after the elimination of rinse/dry to purge the oily film from dishes and machine..
  6. If success "joy" is achieved with no additives then cautiously add back wash detergent with additives. Additives are important to facilitate drying and protecting the glassware china from leaching. The leaching process permanently etches the surface of glassware leaving a cloudy appearance.

Dirty Dishes


Hello Peter, Welcome to Fixya. I'm going to start by asking a couple of questions, but that is part of a proper and thorough diagnosis from afar...in my opinion. Does a "normal" wash cycle take longer then 2 - 3 hrs ? Do the dishes appear to be dry when the dishwasher completes the cycle ? Further to this question, does there appear to be any heat in the machine upon completion of the cycle ? I ask these questions specifically because heat is a crucial factor in desolving the detergent ( usually a minimum of 145F ) and thus cleaning the dishes as well as allowing the dishes to dry properly when cleaned. If we could start here I will be better equipped to helping you solve your dishwasher troubles and with any luck assisting you in repairing it yourself. I'll watch for your reply and we'll go from there. macmarkus :)

Check both arms are spinning freely when you have the machine loaded up normally.
If thats ok you could try powder instead of tabs if they are not disolving correctly
