Dish Sanitizer


Yes that is right, not a dishwasher anymore, it hase become a dish sanitizer. For about the last 2 years or so now, unless the dishes are pretty much clean when they go in the whole load comes out cruddy. About 6 years ago I replaced the motor/pump assembly and it cleaned better than ever after that but it has gotten pretty bad now. Does anybody have any suggestions? It is a GE potscrubber, it is just under 14 years old.

At just under 14 years, it is at the end of its life. Rather than toss some more money at it for questionable repairs, replace it and be happy. New machines are far better than the best made that long ago. Quieter too.

Does the soap container open?
Have you opened the door in the middle of the cycle to see soapy dirty water pouring down from the top rack?
Can you give mroe details about what is wrong?

It seems to run through a cycle just fine. Soap door opens, drains properly etc... It just doesn't seem to filter out the water very well, or at all for that fact. Anything left on any of the dishes will end up somewhere else after the wash. We always make sure that the hot water is up to the kitchen sink and we have had softened water in the house for 10 years now. We just are not ready to get a new one when the one we have does work..... Mark

If it did work, you'd not be writing here. It makes noise, but does not clean. A repair can be 50% of hte cost of a new machine and once done, something else can go on a 4 year old machine. Get some hints at www.applianceaid.com

Mark, the repair cost cannot be justified ... it is at the end of its life.
If it worked properly, I would not be typing this response.

check ACTUAL water temp should be at least 130 degrees
check actual rotation and spray of arms. they clog or pump may be anemic.
check water level, too low can cause it
I too agree at 14 years a NEW machine is the best solution.
