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.

Check your water pressure. Disconnect the water line at the intake valve. Hold the end of the water line over a bucket and turn on valve. See if any deposits come out and check the water pressure. There is a fine screen at the intake valve which can get clogged if you have crud in your pipes. Get a mirror and flashlight and inspect it.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
There is and internal float switch that controls power to the inlet water valve. If the float is sensing that the unit is full of water it will go through all portions of the cycle but.... will not have any water in it at all.

Take a look at this diagram and check items 302 through 308:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=209408&diagram_id=20816425#d20816425

The float should move up and down around 1/2 inch. I believe your float is stuck in the UP position. This is usually caused by food particulate on the stem (Item 306). Clean it up and it should work. You can gently push the stem up and down from under the unit and you should hear the micro-switch click as you raise and lower the stem. No click = bad micro-switch / no power to the inlet water valve. You can briefly jumper across the micro-switch to see if you get water flow during fill cycle. Just be aware of the dangers of working on live circuits.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

How does water actually get into the tub of a GE Model GSD2200G00WW dishwasher and to clean the overflow area how do you get it out I have cover off, down to rubber, got some stuff out, ? filter


First--Water enters the dishwasher through the water inlet valve which is the plastic electric valve that the house plumbing attaches to. On GE's its usually under the left front corner once you remove the small access panel. Power is applied by the the timer during the fill cycle. Second-- there is no other filter down in the area you are trying to clean. To remove that rubber boot/sump area you would need to un-install the dishwasher and remove the motor pump assembly from underneath. Here are a couple of things to check for poor cleaning. 1---internal water level---should be about 1/2 inch at door front edge. If not, that inlet valve may be partially blocked and need replaced. 2---water temp needs to be at least 120 minimum. If not hot enough it will not dissolve soap. 3--- look closely at all the little holes in the spray arms. Pay close attention to the end holes that are used to spray out water like a jet engine and spin the arms. Any blocked holes need to be cleaned with something like a toothpick. 4--- check dishwasher at cycle end. If tub has excessive amount of water left inside you may have a blocked drain hose from dishwasher to house drain system. Remove and clean. A small amount of water in sump area is normal but none u near door.

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.

Bosch washer #2460 signas that water tap is closed, checked the hoses and screens


I am not sure why but there are 2 posts for your question. This is a duplicate of my original answer:
If you have checked the hoses and screens then the most probable failure is the inlet water valve. I suspect that one of the electrical water valve solenoids has failed. If you using cold water try a warm or hot wash. If your using hot or warm try a cold wash. I am not sure on this washer if there is a mixing valve but may front loading washers have mixing valves that mix hot and cold water simply to help dissolve the HE type soaps. If changing wash temp makes no difference then a continuity check for inlet water valve coil resistance will have to be performed with an inexpensive ohm meter. If there is no continuity the solenoid has failed and the inlet water valve will have to be replaced.

This unit appears to have 2 inlet water valves one for hot and cold and one for just cold that is used for diluting soap. You will need to check all 3 solenoids for continuity. The inlet water valves are items 5 and 6 of this picture:

Does not cleans dishes



Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.

Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.

For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water is draining and is not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in dishwasher then check for clogged drain hoses and drain pump.

Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.



Thanks

Using powder 1/2 recommend amount. there is a continual build up of powder in the dispensing cavity behind drawer. how do I prevent this am having to clean with toothbrush daily


Hi

When you start a cycle, does the machine take a long time for it to fill up with water.

If so, you have a faulty inlet valve. There is a rubber diaphram inside the valve which tends to tear over time.When this happens the water just trickles in. Therefore the soap/powder is not dissolved into the tub thouroughly.

Some powders also dissolve less than others, and using the machine on hot water cycle helps to dissolve the soap faster.

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.
