Have a GE Profile PDW8280 dishwasher. My dishes are not as clean as they used to get - dishes feel gritty and food particles keep getting stuck in the middle and lower arm spay holes. Is there something wrong with the filtering system? If so, how do I fix it. Thank you.


If you have cleaned the filter sump and you are sure the kitchen side of the drain hose is ok, then I suspect there is some problem in the separation circuit between the wash and drain pumps in the dishwasher.\015\012\015\012See ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW8280JSS Built-in Dishwasher

My GE Max dishwasher is not cleaning my dishes. There are food particles left on the dishes, and the dishes themselves are not cleaned very well. The bottom of the dishwasher has food particles left ont he screen once its done. I run the hot water before starting the dishwasher, I use gel detergent because the powder gets caked in the dispenser. Where do I start to troubleshoot?

Cleaning My dishwasher always leaves behind these brown small peices of crime. I use about 1 tsp of dry poweder (the repair told me to last year) and that helped with all the streaks on the dishes. I clean the traps often, clean off my dishes to the point as I might as well just do them by hand, and still I get these food particles or whatever it is. We have a good working water softner. I get so frustrated and it seems like such a waste of time. Any suggestions? Teree

My dishwasher filter keeps getting plug up with large food particles. I take it apart and clean the screen. It works for a 2-3 -4 weeks before I have to do it again. There is a spinning fan on the screen. I'm wondering if this scrapper fan is working at all. If it was I think it would keep the small screen free from particles. The first thing that happens is the top cleaning arm stops working.' Thanks


Hi Judy. The only way to know for sure is to power up the fan independent of the machine and see if it still works. In the meantime, rinse and remove all debris from the dishes prior to placing them in the machine, including pots and pans. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

I recently bought a house (appliances came with it). The dishwasher is model #HSD2504J01WW. It does not get the dishes even slightly clean. There are food particles on all items, even glasses which had no food in/on them. I have made sure the waterhose to the dishwasher is wide open so enough water flows to it. I have run vinegar through a cycle....I am not sure how old this model is, the previous owner had the house for 4 years and it was here then. I do not want to spend alot repairing it,
