GE Profile Dishwasher -PDW7880G00SS
Posted 29 May 2011 - 04:46 PM
My GE worked great for about a yr , then it would leave a sandy residue of gook on everything. Especially deep glasses.
Even if we put the in completely clean, they'd come out w/ stuff on them.
Recently I saw dirty water in the bottom that wouldn't drain out. I figured the drain hose was clogged and so I figured disconnect it and clean it out.
Your not supposed to put 'Drano" in there right?
I can only get it out 1/3 of the way. Something on the left side (Left side if your facing the dishwasher) seems to be hung up and holding it.
Now it seems some water is leaking from the fitting from some copper pipe where it connects to the dishwasher underneath.
1-How do I get it out of the counter? It had to be connected before they pushed it in so it should just slide out right?
2- Why was it not cleaning my dishes and instead baking gook on them?
3- why was dirty water pooling in the bottom of the dishwasher
what do i do now?

I can't look under the screen I can't open the bottom propeller to clean out the dried gunk in the blower holes. How do you access this stuff?

There is a large strainer screen that lays on the bottom. I'd like to clean under there too.
The thing that looks like a strainer cap is under the propeller but won't come off . The white tube that runs along the back of the washer that brings water to the upper propeller is covering it too.
What do i do now?
Is there a pic in the manual of the strainer cap and how to remove?

1- open to clean the screen thing #451
2- open the propeller (#501) to clean the stuff caught inside
3- how do I open the cover / screen over the wash pump inlet? The hard white pipe that brings water up to the upper sprayer is on top of it (It's not pictured in your diagram)
4 what the heck is this pastey slime on my skin and how do I wash it off???
Does the screen 502 lift up somehow?
