Svc Manual Request: GE PDWT380V00SS Dishwasher and question
« on: November 28, 2013, 11:53:46 AM »
Need the service manual for the dishwasher mentioned in subject line.

Also, my client is using Cascade dishwashing detergent tabs.  She claims the dishwasher's not cleaning the dishes.   Before doing the service call, I had her run a couple of cycles with vinegar and one with bleach.  Once on-site, I did a thorough top-down inspection and found a few, trivial items of concern, but nothing major. She says she rinses the dishes beforehand, but I suspect she rinses and then lets the dishes sit awhile before the washer is full.  Comments?  Suggestions?  Feedback?

Thanks

Did you clean the sump?.  This is a poor design, GE has the chopper blade behind the inlet screen instead of in front of it. I usually find it plugged up with shredded napkins.

Appreciate your response.  I don't have tech sheet and this is my first go-round with this model.  What's the process of accessing chopper area?

Thanks much!

Oh, and yes, I cleaned the sump.  You're right about the design.  I'm hoping I can remove kickplate and access components because builder put an island in the kitchen with minimal clearance to pull unit away from wall.   :-\
