I bought a new shaft, cup and spring for the dishwasher since old cup assembly broke. The new shaft won't lock in place. Is this a problem? With no instructions, it is not intuitive how to put insert the spring to work with the shaft and cup? Can you help?
You will need to open the dishwasher door and remove the screws around the perimeter of the door. You will then pull the dispenser lever that is on the inside of the door off and place the spring on the back side of it. There is a groove that the spring will hook around and then slide back into place. Push the lever you received in from the front and push through the hole on the lever in the back and it will lock into place.
I have the GE Potscrubber and the detergent cap does not stay closed. Please tell me all the parts I would need to fix. Thank you
Answer Hello Mary,
This can be caused by a detergent build-up on the components from a slight leak at the dispenser door and shaft assembly. I would first try clearing any detergent build-up in the door assembly and if that doesn't correct the issue, replace the shaft WD16X313 and the detergent cup cover WD16X297.
It seems when the detergent cup opens (after you start the wash cycle) water comes out of the bottom of the dishwasher.
Answer Hello Ken,
You should check the bottom of the float WD12X334 for the float switch for a detergent build-up underneath it which would make it heavy. You should also make sure the water valve WD15X93 is closing properly since this would cause an overfill.
The detergent cup will not stay closed. What do I need to fix it?
Answer Hello Larry. If the level is broke, and the cup does not stay closed, you can replace the cup shaft and lever kit WD16X313. Hope this helps.
The detergent cup doesn't open all the way during the wash cycle. After the cycle ends there is still detergent coming from the cup. What can be done to fix this?
Answer Hi Will. you will need to change the detergent cup shaft / lever assy. part # is WD16X313. You will need the spring behind the inner door. part # is WD3X764. Is there anything while loaded in the racks that might be holding the door closed partially? Thank you.
