Using the dishwasher.

Check the Water Temperature

The entering water must be at least 120°F and not more than 150°F, for effective cleaning and to prevent dish damage. Check the water temperature with a candy or meat thermometer. Turn on the hotwater faucet nearest the dishwasher, place the thermometer in a glass and let the water run continuously into the glass until the temperature stops rising.


Use Jet-Dry ® Rinse Agent

Jet-Dry® or Cascade Crystal Clear® rinse agents remove spots and prevent new film buildup on your dishes, glasses, flatware, cookware and plastic

Filling the Dispenser

Fill the rinse agent dispenser until it reaches the bottom of lip inside the opening. Replace cap. To check if rinse agent is needed, remove the cap and look into the dispenser. A full dispenser should last about one month. If rinse agent spills, wipe up the excess.


Loading the dishwasher racks


For best dishwashing results, follow these loading guidelines. Features and appearance of racks and silverware baskets may vary from your model.


Upper Rack

The upper rack is for glasses, cups and saucers. Cups and glasses fit best along the sides. This is also a secure place for dishwasher-safe plastics. The upper rack is good for all kinds of odd-shaped utensils. Saucepans, mixing bowls and other items should be placed face down.

Secure larger dishwasher-safe plastics over two fingers when possible. Make sure small plastic items are secure so they can’t fall onto the heating element.


Wash Tower

Keep the center area clear in the lower rack. The wash tower rises through the center of the lower rack during the wash and rinse portions of the cycle.

Don’t block it or load tall things next to it. Also, be careful not to let a portion of an item such as a pot or dish handle extend through the bottom rack. This could block the wash arm and cause poor washing results.


Lower Rack

When loading the lower rack, do not load large platters or trays in the front right corner. They may prevent detergent from circulating during the wash cycle.

The lower rack is best used for plates, saucers and cookware. Large items such as broiler pans and racks should go along the sides. Load platters, pots and bowls along the sides, in corners or in the back. The soiled side of items should face the center of the rack. Be sure items don’t fall through rack and block rotation of the spray arm.


Silverware Basket

Put flatware in the removable basket with fork and knife handles up to protect your hands. Place spoons in the basket with handles down. Mix knives, forks and spoons so they don’t nest together. Distribute evenly. Small plastic items, such as measuring spoons and lids from small containers, should go in the bottom of the silverware basket with silverware on top.


Caring for the dishwasher

To clean the control panel, use a lightly dampened cloth, then dry thoroughly. To clean the exterior, use a good appliance polish. Never use sharp objects, scouring pads or harsh cleaners on any part of the dishwasher.


Protect Against Freezing

If your dishwasher is left in an unheated place during the winter, ask a service technician to:

1.Cut off electrical power to the dishwasher. Remove fuses or trip circuit breaker.

2.Turn off the water supply and disconnect the water inlet line from the water valve.

3.Drain water from the inlet line and water valve. (Use a pan to catch the water.)

4.Reconnect the water inlet line to the water valve.

5.Remove the plastic sump cover in the tub bottom and use a sponge to soak up water in the rubber boot.


Does Your Dishwasher Have an Air Gap?

An air gap protects your dishwasher against water backing up into it if a drain clogs. The air gap is not a part of the dishwasher. It is not covered by your warranty. Not all plumbing codes require air gaps, so you may not have one.

GE Dishwasher with Front Controls and Power Cord

The air gap is easy to clean.

Turn off the dishwasher and lift off the chrome cover.

Unscrew the plastic cap and clean with a toothpick.


Stainless Steel Panels

The stainless steel panels can be cleaned with Stainless Steel Magic or a similar product using a clean, soft cloth.


GEDishwasherTroubleshooting Tips


Dishwasher won’t run

Fuse is blown, or the circuit breaker tripped:

•Replace fuse or reset circuit breaker. Remove any other appliancesfrom the circuit

• Try resetting the START/RESET pad

Power is turned off:

• In some installations, power to the dishwasher is provided through a wall switch, often located next to the disposer switch. Make sure it is on.


Noise

Some of the sounds you’ll hear are normal:

• Soft food disposal shredding action.

•Drain valve opening to pump water out.

• Timer control as cycle progresses.

•Detergent cup opening.

• The motor stopping during the drying period.

•Water draining out of tub immediately after touching the START/RESET pad.

Utensils are not secure in rack or something small has dropped into rack:

•Make sure everything is secured in dishwasher.

Rattling dishes whenthe spray arm rotates:

•Make sure dishes are properly loaded. See the Loading thedishwasher racks section.

Motor hums:

•Dishwasher has not been used on a regular basis. If you do not use your dishwasher often, set it to fill and pump out once every week. This will help keep the seal moist.


Water standing in the bottom of the tub

This is normal:

•A small amount of clean water around the outlet on the tub bottomat the back of the tub keeps the water seal lubricated.


Water won’t pump out of the tub

Drain is clogged:

• If you have an air gap, clean it.

•Check to see if your kitchen sink is draining well. If not, you may need a plumber.

• If the dishwasher drains into a disposer, run disposer clear


Suds in the tub

Correct detergent wasn’t used:

•Use only automatic dishwasher detergents to avoid sudsing.Cascade®, Cascade® Complete and Electrasol® Automatic Dishwashing Detergents have been approved for use in all GE dishwashers.

• To remove suds from the tub, open the dishwasher and let suds dissipate. Add 1 gallon of cold water to the tub. On Models with a Dial: Close and latch the dishwasher. Pump out water by slowly turning the Dial until a drain period is reached. Repeat if necessary. On Models with Electronic Control: Pump out water by pressing the START/RESET pad, then 10 seconds later, press START/RESET pad again. Repeat if necessary.

Rinse agent was spilled:

•Always wipe up rinse agent spills immediately.


Stained tub interior

Some tomato-based foods can cause reddish stains:

•Use of the RINSE ONLY cycle after adding the dish to the loadcan decrease the level of staining. GE recommends Cascade® Plastic Booster to help remove these types of stains.

Tea or coffee stains:

•Remove the stain by hand, using a solution of 1/2 cup bleach and 3 cups warm water.

WARNING Before cleaning interior, wait at least 20 minutes after a cycle for the heating elements to cool down. Failure to do so can result in burns.

An overall yellow orbrown film can becaused by iron deposits in water:

•A special filter in the water supply line is the only way to correct this problem. Contact a water softener company.

White film on inside surface—hard waterminerals:

•GE recommends Jet-Dry ® or Cascade Crystal Clear® to helpprevent hard water mineral deposits from forming.

•Run dishwasher with citric acid to remove mineral deposits. Citric acid (Part number: WD35X151) can be ordered through GE Parts. See back cover for ordering information.

How do I reset my dishwasher control panel?
Expert (9/21/2020 2:56:31 PM):

To reset the dishwasher control panel, it needs to be disconnected from the power source for one minute. If your dishwasher is plugged into an outlet, simply unplug the unit for one minute and then plug the unit back in.

Barr (9/21/2020 2:50:45 PM):
Why is my GE Dishwasher not filling with water?
Expert (9/21/2020 2:53:45 PM):

If the water valve is clogged or defective, water will not flow into the dishwasher. Water inlet valves are not repairable if the valve is defective, you must replace it. If the float switch is defective or stuck, it might not stop the dishwasher from overflowing.

Badr (9/21/2020 2:49:59 PM):
How do I get my GE dishwasher to drain?
Expert (9/21/2020 2:50:25 PM):

How do I get my dishwasher to clean better?
To clean, run your dishwasher on a normal cycle using two cups of white vinegar instead of detergent. To go the extra mile, wipe down the interior walls and racks with a solution of vinegar and baking soda, making sure to rinse well once you've gone over all the surfaces.

Aldis (9/21/2020 2:49:37 PM):
Is there a fuse in a GE dishwasher?
Expert (9/21/2020 2:49:43 PM):

The thermal fuse shuts off power to the dishwasher if it overheats. If the thermal fuse blows, it will prevent the dishwasher from starting.

Afton (9/21/2020 2:49:06 PM):
Why will my dishwasher not start?
Expert (9/21/2020 2:49:22 PM):

Make sure your dishwasher is securely plugged in and that the circuit breaker switches haven't been tripped. Wait until the drain cycle is complete and try starting your dishwasher. Ensure the door latch is working properly—The door latch assembly holds the door closed during a wash cycle to prevent water from leaking.

Deborah (9/21/2020 2:48:46 PM):
Does a dishwasher have a reset button?
Expert (9/21/2020 2:48:55 PM):

Most dishwashers can be reset by holding down the start button for three seconds or until you hear a beep. If the dishwasher still doesn't roar to life, then read the keypad buttons to diagnose why the dishwasher won't start.

Kimberly (9/21/2020 2:47:44 PM):
Is there a recall on GE dishwashers?
Expert (9/21/2020 2:48:03 PM):

(CBS/AP) WASHINGTON - More than a million GE dishwashers are being recalled due to fire hazard. The Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday the voluntary recall includes about 1.3 million GE, GE Adora, GE Eterna, GE Profile and Hotpoint dishwashers. The machines' heating elements can fail and cause fires.

Laura (9/21/2020 2:46:57 PM):
Why won't my GE dishwasher clean the dishes?
Expert (9/21/2020 2:47:22 PM):

Common solutions for: GE Dishwasher not cleaning. The water inlet valve opens to allow water to enter the dishwasher. If the valve is clogged or defective, the dishwasher won't get enough water to clean dishes properly. Do not attempt to clean the water inlet valve cleaning the valve could make it more likely to fail.
