GE Profile dishwasher with ''SmartDispense'' technology is clogged

\015 How can I unclog the SmartDispense feature of my GE Profile dishwasher? The dishes are not getting clean and the detergent in the dispenser is not being dispensed. I believe I may have used an enzyme detergent after using a bleach detergent which I understand can cause the system to clog.My GE PDW9700II dishwasher's SmartDispense system doesn't work either. I'm on the third round of purging. The first time quite a bit of detergent came out, but not even close to all of it. I added hot water to the reservoir as directed in the purge instructions. The second and third times, some liquid came out, but it is still almost all the way up to the top of the reservoir. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

Check the reservoir hose , and unclog it if necessary. You may need to disassemble the reservoir/dispenser to solve the problem.

My GE Profile model PDW9280N00SS dishwasher is 3 years old, and has the SmartDispense feature. Over the last month or so, a noticeable amount of detergent is leaking into the dishwasher between cycles. The dispenser is not clogged, and it does not contain water at this point. I also exclusively use Cascade liquid detergent. What needs to be done to correct the leaking detergent?

Perhaps I am late to the party, but is GE having a current issue with Cascade over their detergents resulting in SmartDispense technology clogging their dishwashers units? We did not mix detergents, but today's GE serviceman says we're looking at $200 in labor and repair on our RDW8600 series, due to severe coagulation. Seems this is closer to a product defect, and one of the company's should be footing the bill.

The GE Profile Dishwasher does not drain completely. The bottom drain shows no obvious clog and the screens are clear. The overflow drain in the back of the washers the only reason the dishwasher does not overflow. Any suggestions......The washer is about 10 years old...

I would like to run the Smart Dispenser Purge function on my GE Profile 9280N Dishwasher because, we mixed detergents and it is no longer functioning correctly (glassware and silverware does not get clean).

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine.

My dishwasher spray arms were clogged with calcium buildup so I cleaned one and replaced the other. I also removed the fixed disc-shaped device underneath the lower spray arm and found the particle filter was clogged- so I cleaned it out. The dishwasher ran fine for a few times but then the filter clogged again, and again, and again. Now I need to make a routine of disassembling the parts to get at the filter every week because the filter no longer clears itself during the wash and/or emptying c
