Having problems with your GE Adora GHDA654LBG Dishwasher ?

My GE Adora dishwasher is not cleaning well and the detergent isn't completely disolving. What could be the problem?


Answers :

Mine has been doing the same thing for about 2 months now.. I tried Finnish brand diswasher cleaner, but to no avail. Try this:
\015\012
\015\0121) Empty your dishwasher, then take out the lower rack.
\015\012
\015\0122) Start a regular cycle. Wait until you hear the jets turning, then open the door. Make sure there is enough water in the bottom - It should be just UNDER the heating element.
\015\012
\015\0123) If your dishwasher is getting enough water, Reset your washer and allow it to drain.
\015\012
\015\0124) Go to the store and get a gallon jug of white vinegar. Start your dishwasher on a regular cycle.
\015\012
\015\0125) Once you hear the jets turning, Open the door and add FOUR CUPS (liquid measure) of white vinegar to the water in the bottom. Let the wash cycle complete.
\015\012
\015\0126) When the wash cycle drains, the rinse cycle will fill. Once the rinse cycle starts, add ANOTHER FOUR CUPS of white vinegar to the first rinse cycle.
\015\012
\015\0127) Allow the first rinse cycle to drain. Let the second rinse cycle complete normally.
\015\012
\015\012I know this sounds too good to be true, but it REALLY DID work for me, this evening as a matter of fact! I also bought some hard water/soap film detergent additive from the store. It was kind of expensive, but I'm using it for a while just in case.
\015\012
\015\012I hope this helps. Like I said, I couldnt believe it when my dishes came out clear again! Also, I turned OFF the heated dry cycle, and just opened the door and pulled out the racks when it was done.
\015\012
\015\012Good Luck!

Like so many others, I am experiencing a problem with my GE dishwasher's smartdispense. I have ALWAYS used the SAME detergent(Cascade Complete)and still have the gumming-up issue. I noticed that the dishes were not getting clean and when I opened the smartdispense cover I could see that the detergent was gelled. Spent the better part of 2 hours trying to remove as much gunk out of the dispenser as I could with the help of a plumbers flexible plastic drain cleaning tool. This really angers me as

Recently my Maytag dishwasher has been leaving glassware filmy and not cleaning silverware and dishes as well as it had previously. I had a repairman look at it and he said I should use the "accu temp" setting for hotter water. I've used two dishwasher cleaner products and nothing has improved the results. I've heard that dishwashing detergents no longer contain phosphorus and that is the reason the glassware looks milky. Is there something I can add with the detergent to remedy this problem o

My two year old Bosch dishwasher is not cleaning well and is leaving gritty food on most glasses, cutlery, etc. Worse on the top but also not good on the bottom. I have tried cleaning the removable filter on the bottom and rinsing the two 'wands' - one on top and on the bottom so that the little holes are not blocked. I've tried using the power scrub mode. I've run the dishwasher twice with detergent and no dishes. This has problem has persisted over at least a month. Can you please help me?

Hi. My problem is with my dishwasher detergent dispenser. It does open (at least it is open at completion of cleaning cycle), appears to deliver soap to dishes (as they appear clean), however, from the dispenser to the bottom of the door, there remains a very large amount of soap residue after wash is complete. This residue only continues to build up after each wash? The dispenser does not appear to be clogged and also appears to be delivering soap to dishes so I am not sure what to check for

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

GE Dishwasher detergent dispenser has hardened soap in it when cycle is done We, too, have the same problem. Ours is a GE Profile MAX - GSD6610K01CC.

My Bosch dishwasher has several problems: 1) Water doesn't completely drain out and dishwasher kind-of smells when I open it -- I do keep the filter very clean. 2) The dishwasher takes HOURS to go through one load, no matter what the time says on the display and no matter what type of cycle you choose -- quick, delicate or regular. 3) The red display often displays something that looks like "2h" at the beginning of the cycle. 4) The place where you put the detergent doesn't shut.
