Having problems with your GE 24 in. Profile PDW9880JSS Built-in Dishwasher ?

Leaks when being unloaded

\015 We have a GE profile built in dishwasher. Our kitchen floor is carpet. Several times after emptying the dishwasher we noticed a soiled patch on the carpet approximately five inches in front of the dishwasher. The spot is wet but the carpet between the dishwasher and the spot is dry. We clean the spot with a carpet cleaner and it is not noticible for several weeks and then it comes back. I cannot imagine how the spot is connected to the dishwasher but there seems no other connection. Can you give me some guidance? The dishwasher was here when we purchased the house so I do not have the manual. Is there a grease trap or some filter that needs to be changed?\015

Answers :

I may not have the full solution here, but to avoid (expensive) sub-floor damage, I recommend you do the following.  Assuming that the water is not coming from some dripping between the opened door at the hinge....\015\012
\015\012-Remove the kick plate that is in the bottom, front of the dishwasher.\015\012
\015\012Use a flashlight to look for wet flooring.  Run the dishwasher with the kick plate removed, watching for leaks/dripping.  It is possible for a leak to seep under the floor.  If leaking is found, do not ignore it.  Pull the dishwasher, fix the leak or replace the dishwasher.  Remove the first layer of sub-floor under the dishwasher, looking for deeper damage.\015\012
\015\012You should probably do the same with the carpeted area.  Pull the carpet back and decide if the sub-floor needs to be replaced.  A flooring expert should probably inspect.\015\012
\015\012Sorry to be such an alarmist, but I have been around floor damage that was unnoticed and ignored.

No pressure Gas powered pump is a radial type from DeVilbiss. There is very low pressure, although there is some pulsing from the pumping action. There are no leaks and the supply pressure is good. Pump pistons are in good condition. They seem to be pumping when I had it disassembled and operated by hand. I suspect it is something in the bypass or unloader. Or it may be in the ''easy start'' assembly which I assume reduces backpressure on the pump when starting the engine. Pump has a temperatu

I had my dishwasher installed in December. Thought it was leaking but couldn't catch it in action since it didn't start in the early part of the cycle. Now it leaks through the bottom of the door but it is on and off. However, when it leaks it leaks a lot. They sent repair person twice. Did not leak. This is a new kitchen and I have not installed a sink or countertops because I want the leaks to stop first.

Door leak The dishwasher is 2 and half year old and is randomly leaking for at least one year or even more. The leak originally occurred at both lower ends of the door, close to the hinges. The leak was about one liter and the door panel sound insulation soaked with water. After door panel was removed, the leak location was identified at both ends of the lower door gasket. The outside part of the U-shaped gasket was filled with water, and eventually water was spilled on the floor. The leak can g

Water leaks from underneath the unit. Water only leaks when the pump cuts on (pressurizes). It leaks down on to the hose connecting to the water inlet valve on the right hand side of the unit when looking at the door of the unit.

My GSD5940Do1ss leaks from what appears to be a tube that is in the middle left of the underside. There are no leaks from the hoses or pumps. It only leaks when it is adding water during the wash or rinse cycle. The part it is leaking from looks like a plastic tube that is part of the tub enclosure. There are four of them and I think they are really the mounting guides for the tub enclosure, which means the water is probably flowing down the tub to this spot. I'm assuming that means my seal arou

Dishwasher Leaking Dishwasher leaks from underneath the right front side of appliance. Can't tell exactly where it's leaking from, because of plastic guard/support on underside. All of the connections and hoses are in good shape. I'm assuming that it has something to do with the draining process, as it will leak 2-3 times during a wash cycle. Sometimes it's very little water and sometimes it's as much as a gallon.

I have a pressure washer with a faip 3 piston pump. the other day i was using it and it stopped unloading. i cleaned the unloader and it didn't help. I bought a new one and it still won't work. I e-mailed Ryobi and they will not respond. There were no instructions on installing and adjusting the unloader. Could you give me an idea how to install and set up the new unloader. Any help would be most appreciated.


I think your main problem is that the unloader valve needs to be lubricated. Use the very best water resistant bearing grease you can find. If you can e-mail me a pic of your unloader assembly I can try to explain how to set it up. [email protected] ... Honda Pressure Washers
