SOURCE: GE Dishwasher fills with water but does not "spray water" on dish

Here are a few things that might help you out, first is you could have a bad heating element in your dish washer, when it fills with water it has to reach a certain temperature before continuing to the next cycle, next thing is you could have a bad thermostat, or your timer is defective.

For 6 mos. now, my dishwasher has begun to leave this white filmy, cloudy residue on all my dishes. It has ruined calaphon utensils and glasses I have had for 14 years. The detergent has always been the...

Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound. If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve.
Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Hope this helps......

Our newer dishwasher does not clean the dishes presently. The water heats up, and drains properly, but I noticed the sprayer nozzles are not spinning when I open the dishwasher.

Try manually rotating the spray arm. Check the orifices & clean if clogged.

After loading the dishes check every time before closing the door for free rotation of the spray arm.

Fills, drains but does not spray water. I've made sure it is clean. no water comes out of the top and bpttom jets

Check for clog in chopper assy. This can be accessed by dissassembling the sprayer assy in the bottom of the washer. Chopper assy is replaceable part , if necessary, ~$25.

The dishwasher doesn't clean properly

Lots of possibilities...

1. the sprayer arm might be sticking and not moving, or moving very little. Check to see if you can spin it by hand. Listen when the machine is running and you should hear the sound of the spray changing as it rotates. Check for items that might be jamming the arm like silverware, cups, jar labels, etc.

2. the little holes in the sprayer arms could be clogged. Need to remove the arms and clean them.

3. If it has a spray arm in the top rack, check to see that the piping for that is not broken or missing any pieces.

4. Any filter screens inside the plumbing could be clogged. This would slow down the spray and result in the dishes not getting rinsed properly. Check the inside of the machine for any foreign objects (see #3 above).

5. The machine might not be emptying between portions of the cycle. After the wash cycle, see if it is draining by either checking for water coming out of the drain hose or by opening the machine before it should start filling up for the rinse cycle.

6. Machine could be overloaded. Or loaded with extremely dirty dishes. Or with foods that are hard to clean like grits or oatmeal.

7. The machine could be improperly loaded. Bowls or platters blocking the spray. Tall objects like glasses and jars should not be loaded into the corners of the racks. The corners do no get a lot of spray and tall items can end up dirty.

Water does not spray out at high enough pressure. does water fill work on volume of water or timer. i think my fill valve may be partly blocked

I think you need to check your gaskets o rings that are where the water pipe comes in onto the sprayer (which is the part that rotates and sprays water ) somewhere thee lays your problem .Check for clogs also like a clogged pump suction as at the base of the dishwasher the water accumulates and it is sucked in .

Cutlery on top tray is not cleaned - comes out with food still stuck here and there - rest of the content is clean

I had the same problem and fixed it by disassembling the lower spray arm and return filter, and cleaning all the junk out.
Most dishwashers have 'risers' that bring the water up to the top sprayer or arm located under the top rack. If the recirculating pump is plugged even a little there won't be enough volume or pressure to get the water up there.
Test this by putting a dry muffin pan in the top rack, flat, and running the dishwasher for a bit. If there is no water on the top (or the bottom) either the top sprayer or the sprayer arm underneath the top rack is not getting enough volume.
To fix this you need to clean out the screen and filter, where the water returns to be recirculated. If you don't have any confidence to remove the parts and clean it out yourself, get an appliance repair person to do the job.

Water won't spray

Sounds like whatever caused the clogged drain may also have clogged the sprayer arm.  If it is clogged it will not spin.  Remove the arm and if it is clogged see if you can clean it out.
