GE Triton dishwasher on cleaning strike
Posted 29 November 2010 - 01:58 PM
This is about my GE Triton dishwasher model GSD6860J01SS
I find that my dishes don't get clean unless I pre-wash (or really wash) them before putting them in--especially anything on the top rack. But now I just think it doesn't clean at all. I used eco-cleaner for a while but that seemed worse, so I switched to Cascade power tabs. But sometimes even though the door to the detergent holder opened--the tab was still stuck in the holder after the cycle ran. So I switched to powder detergent. I fill both cups. I notice now that the detergent is stuck in the cups after running the cycle even though I was careful to only put the detergent in the cups when they were fully dry. On a happier side, at least the cup holder lid is opening.
So now, I pour some detergent into the bottom of the dishwasher to see if that will work. Then I heard somewhere on this forum that perhaps my spray arms aren't rotating. So I put them in the 12:00 position after running the unit and then check after a few seconds and maybe they aren't moving. (They are almost in the same spot). I do know that water is coming out of all three sprayers.
This dishwasher is from 2003. Wondering if I shld just junk it for a new one--and if so, what might be a good replacement--or if this can be fixed. Don't think I want to keep it just as a fancy drying rack....lol

If that's good, then it's time to go underneath and make sure you're getting voltage to the circ. pump (item 310)... and that it's actually running.

Since it isn't getting there--any suggestions? I'll surf the FAQ section too. Thanks!
