Having problems with your GE Tritonr XL GSD6260JCC Dishwasher ?

GE Triton seems to lack pump pressure to rotate the wash arms.

\015 I have a GE Triton Dishawasher that is several years old that is having cleaning isues. Mostly the top rack dishes are the ones with food particles and an oily film. My eleven year old and nine year old sons load and unload the dishwasher as part of their daily chores and the chore is not always done as it shoud be. In the main sump seperation screen area I found a fiber like scum clogging the screenthat seperates the main pump ( for washing) and the evacuation pump. I pulled these out and cleaned them and decided to make sure the impeller and pump shaft was free. I discovered a rubber band behind the impeller and removed it. After reassembly, on the pots and pans cycle the middle wash arm seemed to be spinning and the first severl loads seemed to be better. I should mention that the water level according to the literature I have is to be between 1/8" and 1" high, and it is. I also checked the was arms to make sure there was no debris clogging the directional ports, I've had this happen before with popcorn seeds. At this point I figured I missed somthing that would cause a starving of the pump or that I was loosing pressure from the pump. I pulled the screens out again and they were fairly clean, I used a flashlight a dental pick and some yoga moves and found hair, easter grass and god only knows what else it was wrapped up behind the impeller shaft. Yoga wasn't working so I removed the two boot clamps, the motor harness and grounding wire with screw as well as the motor hanger bracket. I then removed the impeller, the reverse thread corse screen behind the impeller and cleaned the main pump impeller. None of these were clogged but there was debris wrapped around the shaft and in the pump veins. I then reassembled everything and ran the F1 test cycle. I positioned the upper, middle and lower wash arms diagonally so I could check for movement and there was barely any! At this point I put on my raincoat, using a screwdriver I tricked the door switch and started the washer back up in mid cycle. As I suspected the lower wash arm was barely spinning, the middle one didn't spin at all, and I believe the top one was spinning. QUESTION? Could the pump be worn enough allowing for the water in it to just cavitate? Or is is possible that the motor isn't spinning as fast as it once did? Or is there not enough back pressure or resistance to spin the wash arms. My thoughts at this point are to replace the center spigot and lower wash arm assembly and or the the pump body or impeller. I appears that there is a good volume of water but it is hard to judge. As I recall it, from days gone by, when the washer was opened in mid cycle to add a dish the wash arms were visibly spinning. Any thoughts would be appreciated.Scott in IA\015

I have a 13 year old Siemens SE64630GB. It isn't cleaning items in the upper basket and I believe it's due to lack of water pressure in the upper spray arm leading to little or no rotation of the arm. Have cleaned out the drainage pump and removed and cleaned both the water feed pipe to the upper arm (a lot of gunk in there) and the spray arm itself (which also had blocked nozzles) - no apparent blockages now. Could there be a blockage in the circulation pump and if so how do I access this pump

Noticed dishes on top shelf not entirely clean. Ran machine empty and opened many times during wash. Noticed that Lower Spray Arm works as expected, but Middle Spray Arm turns only 1/8 or less, then Lower Arm spins again. Schematic with Use and Care manual just says pump motor switches from one to the other in certain cycles, but I don't see this happening. Looked for obstructions to water flow and pressure seems normal. Is control for this function part of the pump, or in the control panel?

It appears that there is not enough water pressure through the sprayers to to wash food 'deposits' off the plates and dishes.We have well water and it has a some what high lime content so I suspact that there is some calcium / lime clogging in the machine.

The holes in the sprayer . rotating arms appear to be clean.The machine has been e

Whirlpool dishwasher doesn't seem to fill with enough water despite good water pressure. Therefore, pump sounds like it is cycling from pumping water for about 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds to pumping water for 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds, etc. Spray arms rotate only for the 2 seconds when pump is actually pumping water. Dishes do not get clean.

My Kitchen Aid KUDS01FLSS2 dishwasher does not spray water thru the wash arms nor do they seem to turn. Additionally, one of the the bottom arms hits the "cap, internal rear feed" where it clips to "feed tube assembly" when rotated by hand. The spray arm assembly appears true on visual examination. The unit fills, cycles and pumps out in an apparent normal way. While on this site a while back I was advised to clean the unit and referred to a downloadable repair manual that was, in fact, not

I had a service tech at my house to repair my refrigerator. He also took a look at my Maytag WU504 dishwaser, which was not cleaning the dishes anymore. He was less familiar with dishwasher diagnosis, but found that the lower spray arm was pumping out water through the jets properly in the cycles, but that the spray arm was not rotating. He seemed stumped and called his supervisor, who suggested it might be the wash impeller. I have looked at the parts diagram on partselectdotcom and taken t

Bosch SHU4302 WITH REPAIRED PC BOARD has been working fine for several years now seems stuck in rinse/drain mode and is not quite pumping cabinet dry. I have removed the screens and located the small impeller at bottom below cover. The impeller rotates as though it has multiple spring loaded stop positions. When I turn on the unit and open the door water is trickling from the sprayer arms at low pressure. It seems stuck in rinse mode and will not advance cycles or reset when shut off.

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

Hi, ^The GE dishwasher (PDW788000SS) will not fill in either "rinse only" or "normal wash" modes. The control panel lights up with all functions. After selecting rinse only or normal wash and pressing/holding the start/reset button down for several seconds to reset the unit the drain pump comes on for approx 90 seconds as advertised. Checked the float switch and there is no continuity in any position of the little switch arm and the switch arm has no spring on it. Seems like this is a faile
