Thought I had a problem with the spray arm or pump because water was not flowing enough to spray the upper rack. But it turned out it was a simple part missing: the "check valve" that is in the lower neck of the spray arm assembly. It's a $10 part. Part #WD1X5488 for GE Potscrubber 600.

You probably have a restricted water inlet valve. It is not allowing the proper rate of flow for the allotted time, therefore not giving enough water to create the proper velocity to reach the top rack.

SOURCE: ge potscrubber dishwasher will not

Had the same problem with my dishwasher. Took it appart thinking that something was plugging the drain but there wasn't anything. Turns out the cylinoid that has the hook coming out of it to control the flap for the ejection of the water is broken. When looking at your pump, you should see a small flapper valve on the exterior of the pump hooked up to a small cylinoid that when accivated flips a flap in the pump to eject the water out of it instead of letting it circulate in the unit. This is an easy part to replace, but for me, hard to find since my potscrubber is so old. Hopefully your units are newer and you can find this part at your local appliance shop.

What is wrong with my dishwasher and how can I fix it?


Check water temp. Needs to be a minimum of 120 degrees. Check all the spray arm holes for food blockage. Look closely at the holes on the spray arm ends. Those holes act like jet engines to spin the arms.

My GE Potscrubber Model GSD2230Z04WW is not dissolving the soap. I have already replaced the water inlet valve.


Check your wash arms, and make sure the holes are not plugged. Also make sure they are free to turn. Next,remove the toe-kick panel, and look for leaks or signs of leakage. Sometimes (especially if your tile floor doesn't go all the way back), dishwashers will leak most of their water out and you never know it! Other simpler things is to make sure you are not blocking the soap dispenser with large pans or plates.

Remove the arm and clean it. It is surprising how much 'stuff" gets in to them and blocks the holes.

Little water to top rack


Your sprayer arms may be clogged.
The upper arm attaches to a tube in the back of the dishwasher. If the support clamps come loose, the upper spray tube will not be flush with the tube and can't carry water to the sprayer arms. Also the sprayer arms can become clogged with paper remnants, bone fragments, or pieces of peeling. You'll need to remove the sprayer arm and flush it at your sink. If there is a jet that is clogged, tweezers will help remove the residue.

I have a ge quietpower 3 dishwasher. Lately it has stopped cleaning the dishes. Sometimes the dispenser tray doesn't open. Sometimes it does open and the soap pac hasn't disolved.


Make sure your water temperature is hot enough to dissolve the soap. Generally, the water temp. should be 140 degrees. Run some hot water at the tap before you turn on the dishwasher. This will assure that hot water is in the dishwasher as soon as you start it. Be certain that there aren't any large pieces in front of the dispenser tray. Sometimes casserole dishes, frying pans or baking pans can block the door and prevent it from opening.
Also, the sprayer arms might be clogged with bone fragments, peelings, bits of paper, etc. If this is the case, you'll need to remove the sprayer arm, flush and then check the jets. If you see "stuff" in the jets, they can be remove with tweezers.
Finally, make sure the upper sprayer arm hose is securely seated with the tube in the back of the dishwasher that carries the water up to the sprayer arm hose. If these two are not seated correctly, the water will not travel into the sprayer arm hose, the sprayer arm will not turn and your dishes will not get clean! I hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice.

I own a GE Profile Trition quietpower III GSD5940F00SS dishwasher. The dishes, particularly the mugs and cups, are not getting clean.


Your sprayer arms may be clogged. You can remove them by loosening the screws holding them in place. Flush them with the sprayer at your sink. If you can SEE residue (parts of paper labels, bone fragments, fruit peel pieces, etc) remove them with a tweezer.Reinstall the spray arms and see if that works.
Three more ideas:
(1) run a cycle without dishes OR detergent and use 1/4 cup of white vinegar instead. This will break down soil and "gunk" and help your dishwasher run more effectively.
(2) use an old toothbrush and clean the underside of the door INSIDE the dishwasher. The door will be open and you just brush the bottom of the open door on the INSIDE of the dishwasher. A lot of "crud" gathers there and can be redeposite on your dishes. We seldom think to check that area.
(3) the pipe that carries water to the upper sprayer arm MUST fit against the outlet in the back of the dishwasher. If it is dislodged or not seated properly, the water won't flow to the upper sprayer arm.
Hope one of these suggestions helps. If it does, please rate my suggestion. Thanks.

Arms are clogged


You may have debris in the sprayer arm jets. It is usually simple to remove the sprayer arms. Then rinse them well using the sink sprayer for forceful water power. I have sometimes had to use a tweezer to remove bits of plastic, paper, bone, or food particles. Once you've remove the debris, rinse well forcing water through to dislodge any other debris. Once you've reattached the sprayer arms, you should have cleaner dishes. Also, some brands of dishwashers have a pipe that runs up the inside back wall and connects to a pipe that runs under the top shelf. Water flowing through this pipe under the top shelf propels the sprayer arms. If the connection at the back is not flush with the "propel" pipe there won't be enough water pressure to turn the sprayer arm. Check to see if your dishwasher has this type of set up.
I hope this works. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution.
Good luck!
