Having problems with your GE Adora GHDA650LBB / GHDA650LWW Built-in Dishwasher ?

Food particles thrown back on dishes, dirtier than when loaded.

\015 GE GHDA650 dishwasher, particles of food get thrown back on the dishes, especially on the top rack. The glasses on top end up dirtier than when we loaded them. Can't take off top spray arm to try and clean it. Filter also won't come off to clean. Is there anything we can do to fix it without calling a repair person?\015

Answers :

Don't worry about the top spray arm,I just repaired one,and the things to check are the upper rollers on the rack as they get weak and then the center spray arm water conduit wont seal tightly to the main water conduit and you get a loss of water pressure to the center wash arm,i also replaced the main water conduit so they are both new,replace the 4 roller/studs on the dish rack and the 2 water conduits and this should take care of your problem

Kenmore dishwasher Food particles left on dishes and inside of dishwasher. All functions appear to be working normally. Water pressure OK, drain OK, water temp OK, Etc.

Hi - I have tried all the usual tricks of running an empty load with vinegar, and the food particle filter seems to be the kind that isn't removable. Whenever I run a load, there is enough left over particles on the dishes - especially the top shelf, that I either have to wash all the glasses by hand, or run at least one more cycle. I have a standard size hotpoint built-in dishwasher. Please let me know if there is a way to clean the filter, or an alternative method so that the dishes are a

My dishwasher stopped cleaning my dishes when it was just under 2 years old. I hadn't changed the type of detergent, or how I loaded/ran it. We have since tried different detergents and different wash cycles to no avail. If I want to use the dishwasher, I must first completely rinse off any food--and I cannot load dishes as tightly as I used to be able to. Yesterday I noticed that a dish in the back left corner--bottom rack was completely untouched---the residue was as if I had put it in the

Hi, I have a Kenmore Dishwasher with a soil separator. I have food particles on my dishes after every load. No idea what I need to do.

Our Asko dishwasher no longer cleans the top shelf of dishes properly. Fine white and black grit is left on the dishes after every wash, and if there is any food residue on the dishes it does not come off. In addition, food residue that was not on the dishes to start with is being thrown up onto the top shelf and doesn't clean off the dishes. The control unit was replaced 2 months ago at vast expense, and this problem only arose following the repair. The only suggestion from Asko to fix the new

My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them. I rinse dishes before loading them into the washer, I have made sure the jets and washer arms are clean, and made sure the food trap at the bottom of the washer is empty, yet the problem persists. I think it has to do with the detergent not dissolving and dispensing. Is there some reason the

We have a 12 year old kitchen aid diswasher model kudpo1ilbs2. It is not cleaning the dishes. Everything is loaded correctly and the proper cycle and soap is being used. We have had no problems until the last 2 - 3 months when a greasy food film is now appearing on the dishes. Some food is left on but not a great deal. The question is what could be wrong and what kind of cost are we talking? We are trying to make an informed decision as to whether fix or buy new. Thank you in advance

I have a three-year-old Sears Kenmore Elite dishwasher. I find that despite the fact that we scrape and rinse our dishes before loading the machine, after each three months of use (two loads a day) or so, I have to take the machine apart (spray tower, racks, bottom impeller, bottom screen housing, food grinder cover) and clean-out the food grinder area, for it fills-up with sludge. The sludge restricts the water flow and there isn't enough flow to turn the impellers via that steering jets.
