Question about GE 24 in. GLD5860LSS Stainless Still Built-in Dishwasher
Ever since I got my dishwasher it has not cleaned very well and the detergent does not completely dissolved from the dispenser. I had a service man out once and he said to turn up my water heater to about 130?. I did that plus make sure the water coming out of the faucet is hot before starting the dishwasher and I have the ?Hot Start? and ?Hot Wash? cycle button on. I have checked to make sure the dispenser is not being obstructed by a dish and that the middle washing arm is moving around. It?s my fault that I did not continue to call for repairs and now I am out of warranty so I was hoping someone had a suggestion on how to solve this problem without throwing out the dishwasher altogether. Thanks P.S. I have tried using several brands of dishwasher detergent and they all perform the same
I have same dishwasher with same problem. it is a design problem. i will never ever buy GE again. only way to solve this problem is, DO NOT load any dishes at left front side of bottom rack so bottom spray can shoot water in that stupid designed detergent cup. I have service tec came here 3 times and this idiot ******* blamed everything in my new house but this junk and expensive dishwasher. i just wrote a letter to GE headquarters adress is AP 6, Room 129 Louisville, KY 40225

Kalee Most likely your dishwasher is not getting enough water. Check if the water shut off valve under the sink is completely open. If this valve looks pretty old and is not moving freely it could be stuck with hard water deposits. If you see something like that it is a good idea to call a plumber to check it and probably replace it. Good luck. Gendos Post back...

1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.
