Hey guy's , I have a G.E dishwasher ( pot scrubber 600 ) about 10 years old , and lately the dishes on the top rack have not been getting clean ,I've even tried washing dishes with the bottom rack empty and only the top rack loaded , now I've even fooled the door latch and looked in side the washer while it was running and verified the pop up tube is coming up and water is pumping out but not sure if the water pressure is enough . Thanks .
ANSWER Steve, The first thing to check, is the water level, and water temp. Start the dishwasher and let it run 3 to 5 minutes, unlatch the door and remove the lower rack,use a ruler and measure the depth of the water just in front of the lower sprayarm. The water depth should measure 5/8 to 1 inch in depth. Then check the water temperature, it needs to be at least 120 dgrs.F. on the first fill. There has to be enough hot water in the base of the tub to pressurize and move the water up to the upper sprayarm components. If all's OK, then remove the pump assembly and check the sump and impeller WD19X10032 for blockage or damage.
