Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a brand new GE Profile Dishwasher model PDW9280N20SS . I clean most of the food off and lightly scrub the dishes. But any left on food is generally still there after the wash cycle. In addition, there is a light coating of some sort. I use Cascade and jet dry but am not very happy with the results thus far. Any thoughts??

    I have the same problem. I just called the GE repair man to come and look at my dishwasher. He said everything looks fine--but the dishes are still dirty.
    We had already raised the temperature of the water to 130 first before we ever called the technician. The dishes are not getting clean.

Sometime there is a little dirty water left in the bottom and the dishes are dirty

Some models do not have a food grinder, only a food strainer to collect the larger chunks of food which may be partly blocked. the drain to the sink may be partly blocked.

Our Ge profile Dishwasher is not cleaning the upper level dishes, mostly glasses and coffee cups. The insides are bumpy with dried on food. We have cleaned the bottom filter.

Dishwasher leaves food particles on dishes

You are not getting enough water in the machine. The inlet valve is probably plugged with sand or something of the sort. You will need to replace the inlet valve.

GE Profile Dishwasher not cleaning - older PDW7880GOOSS

My GE Profile Dishwasher PDW8280N00SS wouldn't clean the dishes. I found what looked like plastic particles along with food particles in the wash arm spray holes. I found that heat had warped the gray flat filter in the bottom allowing food particles to bypass the filter, and I found that the flexible plastic sump inlet was disintegrating internally shedding plastic which clogged the filter to the pump and getting into the pump. This shouldn't happen. The material that the sump inlet is made out of is too soft and porous. I noticed other components in the wash water system made from the same white flexible rubber which is an unacceptable material. I bought replacement parts at a cost of $100 for both and this has solved the problem. What's distressing is that the replacement parts appear to be made of the same inferior plastic. And I have noticed upon closer inspection that additional interior parts appear to be heat damaged (warped). This dishwasher has been used less than 4 years and problems like these in a high end dishwasher are unacceptable.
