GE model GLD5868V15SS
« on: July 02, 2014, 04:17:11 PM »
Looking for some insight on a drying issue for a GE model GLD5868V15SS. This washer has a stainless exterior with plastic tub and is installed in a (high-end) rental property. The dishes are not drying well and we are trying to understand the cause to keep some great tenants happy. Has anyone run into heating element or control board issues with this unit that could lead to this problem?

Any help or experience with this model and/or a repair manual link would be appreciated so that we can target the repairs or replacements. Thanks!!

Don't know that particular model but there should be a mini manual tucked in between the tub and the tubular steel frame underneath it. That will tell you how to run the diagnostic(s). One of them will test the heater. On some models there's a small electric motor that controls a damper on the vent in the upper left corner of the door. If this is stuck drying won't happen. Also check the soap they use (powder is better) and the rinse aid (helps drying). I probably have the mini manual at work if it's not there.

EDIT: There's probably a manual that covers it in the Google Drive. http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=12032.0
