Having problems with your GE GLD4456RCS Builtin Dishwasher ?

I have a GLD 4456R00CS dishwasher that is maybe 6 months old. It seems to cycle properly, but has never really cleaned the dishes. This is the worst dishwasher we've ever had (over 25 years) and I'm ready to take it to the street. I've cleaned the screen (was already clean), checked the spray bars for clogs (removed, sprayed water through it, and replaced), and looked for any other obvious problem.


Answers :

Sorry you have had so much problems with this dishwasher. Before you "take it to the street" please check one more thing. I have had so many people say similar problems. \012

  1. Check that you are using rise aid if their is an adj. set it to 4-5
  2. \012
  3. Make sure the soap in the dishwasher is a name brand. Dollar store soap will only get white film and poor results
  4. \012
  5. Everyone should run there sink water for at least 2min before you run the dishwasher making sure the cold water is flushed from the line and hot water enters (better wash and shorter wash times)
  6. \012
  7. Water entering has to be at least 125 degrees always.
\012Also run a bottle of Dishwasher Magic once a month to clean out your dishwasher.\012
\012This should do wonders for your cleaning results.\012Have a super weekend!

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned the float. I also took the inlet valve off and cleaned the screen. Although the washer works better overall, the upper arm still does not work well. Nothing appears to be in the upper arm assy to clog water from spraying out. All seems clear from the turbid sensor (next to the pump) through t

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.

My Whirlpool Gold dishwasher has been wonderful until recently. In the last 2-3 weeks, the top rack of dishes does NOT get clean - AT ALL. It appears that the spray arm is not moving, or at least not moving much. What can I do myself to check this out and possibly take things apart to see if something is clogged?

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher about 7 years old. The Model # is 665-16462300. It works beautifully, except that about every 2 months the spray flow intensity ( and the cleanliness of the dishes) drops significantly. The cause is the metal screen located just upstream from the sump is clogged with food particles. I have taken apart the dishwasher several times to remove, clean and replace the screen.

My Thermador dishwasher DWHD64EP/54 does not get the dishes clean. We checked all the usual things--water to the dishwasher is hot, filters clean, spray arms working and not clogged, detergent cups working, proper amts of detergent etc. We find that no steam is produced during the cycles, we find that the when choosing a cycle and power boost incorrect cycle times are now displayed compared to previous usage when the dishwasher ran normal.

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

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher, model KUDS30IVWH3. The dishes have not been getting as clean lately, the bottom is decent but the top rack is not getting very clean. Also, when I open the door after the cycle is done, there's a bunch of detergent at the bottom of the door and on the floor of the dishwasher, like it isn't getting sprayed all over or something. Don't know if I have to check the water intake valve or if maybe the sprayers could be partially clogged.

Whirlpool ADG 7550 integrated dishwasher not cleaning properly. Ive checked the filter and there are no signs of blockage. There is no unusual beeping but there is however a weird motor noise that just appeared. Dishwasher appears to run through the cycles but most of the time there is still traces of food left behind.

I have a Whirlpool GU2500XTPQ3 dishwasher that is about 5 years old. The dishes in the top basket do not get clean. I checked the water tube that feeds the upper spray arm and the top spray and there aren't any obstructions. Our water pressure and temperature are suitable. Could the pump be plugged or otherwise lose its ability to circulate enough water to adequately feed the upper sprayers? How can I check on that?
