We have a GE Model GSD680X dishwasher, about 6-7 years old. The telescoping
tower that pops up when washing hasn't been retracting all the way when the
wash is finished, and then we can't get the rack out. It can be pushed back
down, but it can be very difficult to reach when the rack has been fully
loaded. It does go down easily when you do get to it, so I'm wondering if
the problem is dirt getting in-between the telescoping sections.
Is there a way to get this thing apart, without wrecking it, so it can be
cleaned out, or to find out what else might be making it stick.? Any
suggestions will be appreciated.
If you search for appliance parts, there are many sites that have
exploded parts diagrams by model. Then you can figure out what the
parts are and how it comes apart. It's possible it has some debris
lodged in it, or it could be worn out.
It probably need taken apart and cleaned. You'd be surprised how much
gunk can accumalate in one of those things. Also when you get into it
think just how sanitary is it? But what people don't see don't hurt
As others have mentioned, a good cleaning of that part certainly seems to be
in order. After that, I can wholeheartedly recommend a wonderful product
that will help to keep it clean, a product called "Dishwasher Magic." You
can see more on it here:
Good luck, and happy washing!
