Having problems with your GE Profile PDW8480JSS Built-in Dishwasher ?

Dishwasher will not drain. We cannot get the screen out to check for clogs. There is a grey plastic box that prevents the screen from coming out.


Answers :

Hi

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

I have a PDW8480 with a draining problem. I removed the standing water with my shop vac. I removed both upper and lower racks to gain better access. The spinning rotor was removed by twisting backwards and pulling up. Then the drain screen in the back is relatively a pain to remove. With a little bit of wiggling it will come off. The drain catch was full of all kind of nasty food bits, scum and even bits of broken glass chips. I used my shop vac to **** of the stuff and it worked like a charm. I live in (So Cal) an area with really hard water. I use about a gallon of CLR about once or twice a year to remove the mineral build up. Just dump it in and turn the machine for one cycle. It works excellent!!!! It also helps remove any scum build up as well.

Miele dishwasher makes grinding noise when turned on, there is a light on front next to inlet/drain. So I poured some boiling water into the dishwasher and then left it turned on and could feel the boiling water coming out of the drain hose so I am assuming it is an inlet problem, as it will drain but will not fill or otherwise work.There are a few small cracks in the outer hose of he inlet hose just below the grey box thing, could that be enough to cause the problem? They are only small so I di

GU2400 whirlpool gold quiet partner iii. Won't clean dishes. Dishes don't get wet. Water seems to accumulate at the bottom but no spraying sound during cycle.

Hi, I have a Miele dishwasher G2150 that after 7-10 minutes on any cycle the rinse, dry, and end lights flash amber.

My check ball seems to be plugging the tube the water goes up in.

I have a Bosch Dishwasher, Model SHE46C06UC. No mater what cycle I start it in, it simply activates the drain and continues to run without ever starting. Within the last week prior to the dishwasher not working, I noticed a low hum/vibration emitting from the dishwasher. I've clean out the screen and drain filter, removed the pump cover to check for any debris. I've manually added water and it does drain. Additionally, the drain cycle continues to operate even with the door open.


First thing you may want to check is the door switch. You can pull it off and measure the resistance with an ohmmeter. If you get good reading while pushed in and none while switch button is released, then it is a good start. Next, you may want ... Dishwashers
