Having problems with your GE Dishwashers ?

GE models in the Medle East (problem with heater and salt)

\015 GE models in the Medle East already have a heater built in. However, the technicians say that it needs to be connected to hot water supply. Actually, I have two questions: \015\0121) Cold water supply in our area is usually 30-40 Degrees Celsius. In this case, is there any need to connect to hot water supply? Is it a must or cold water supply would be efficient here in our case? \015\0122) The water we are using is very hard and the GE models do not use salt (softener: special for dishwasher which is usually there in the European models). Would it be acceptable to use the GE model in this situation? Actually, I had a whirlpool dishwasher before and I used it with salt but problem of water deposits was there strongly. \015\012\015\012I need your suggestions (Please I need a suggestion by an expert)\015

Answers :

Cold is probably more efficient unless you have solar heating or your how water cylinder is right next to the washer with minimum amount of piping otherwise by the time the hot water reaches the machine it will have enough in it anyway :p I dont have much experience with water hardness issues as water in my region is quite soft but you can get tablets containing? softener as well as detergent... yes?

My IFB Dishwasher Brand Model Neptune does not dispense the soap during any of the cycles. The Rinse fluid and salt are all topped up. Despite numerous calls to the no given they took around 15 to 20 days to attend and even then the problem has not been sorted out. Despite calling them again and informing them that the problem has not been sorted out nobody has attended.

I have a Zanussi dishwasher model IT 5614. When I turn the dishwasher on, the indicator light is already stuck at "BIO 50" and won't move, and the dishwasher won't start when the door is closed. This just happened today. The indicator light for dishwasher salt was also on, so I added dishwasher salt and that light went off, but the machine is still stuck. The instruction book says that when this happens, technical assistance is needed. What exactly is the problem, and is it anything I can


It has been suggested to switch the machine on/off a couple of times and the flashing light will not reappear. Until this light goes off the dishwasher will not start. All the filters should be cleaned free of any leftover food particles. What i mean ... Dishwashers

After replacing a hotwater heater I was unable to get water flow from several faucets because of sediment. I think the same problem with water is happening in the dishwasher. Where would sediment collect in the model gu1200xt lq1?


Likely, the water inlet valve might have some sediment jamming the valve action. If there is none left on the deck of the washer, then any entering past the intake valve is likely being washed out to the drain. If you have no water fill when starting ... Whirlpool 24 in.

FDW60 Fault Hi, I have exactly the same problem. My dishwasher starts and washes ok but appears to get very hot during the drying phase and then the two lights fast and eco flash warning of a heater problem. I suspect either the heater, thermostat or control PCB. As the rest of the cycle seems of and the water gets hot then I'm assuming the heater and thermostat are OK. When the dishwasher attempts to dry is when the problem starts. Did anyone find out what there fault was? Thanks

My asko dishwasher(1504) keeps running sometimes, The time will run down to 1 min on the disply and stay there and run on and on until I turn it off. Prior to this another problem occured, when the washer does shut off on it's own, the display will read F1(Falt in the heater), I am wondering if one problem has to do with another. The heater problem I can deal with but not the continueous running.


F1 doesn't mean that it's always the heating element itself, often it \015\012can be the control board relay that has shorted and isn't sending power \015\012to the element. If the element is the faulty part, you'd be looking at \015\012about $250 f ... Dishwashers

My zanussi zdf131 has not caused any problems during the last year or so since i purcheased it, but now all the dishes etc come out with a "bloom" of white over everything. I've checked all filters etc, run several cleaning programmes but I've now noticed that the salt level does not seem to be going down. I check it every week & refil but this time the salt has been in the reservoir for several weeks & doesn't seem to have changed - could this cause the problem & if so why is the salt level not

I have Whirlpool control board part #8267371. The problem is that the dishwasher does not complete a cycle. A green light on the door will flash. From what I understand it indicates a failure in the heater at some point. I replaced the heater and all I am left with now is the possibility that the control board has failed. So my question is this. Are there common problems associated with these boards ? Which components should I be looking at ? I don't have a schematic. Or is there anyone that can


Yeah, I'm in the middle of that, too. There's a thermal fuse you can check with a meter just above the control panel inside the front door. It should be 0 ohms. Then it's the control board, I guess. Looking for the same one myself right now. I'm goin ... Kenmore 24 in. 16032 Built-in Dishwasher
