I have an 18 inch ge dishwasher, and I was not scraping my dishes. I've cleaned it, but now my dishes aren't getting cleaned. Do I need it serviced, or is there something I can do?

Thanks Woody,


It is GSD1807K00BB.


I've run vinegar through the machine, it helped a bit...

I can not pull up any info on that model number but I also see it is a Canadian model or I see you are from Canada I should say.

OK if the vinegar helped use a cleaner this will clean all the interior parts ,or the spray arms, tank ,pump assembly.

I recommend Finnish dishwasher cleaner ,in the states we can get it anywhere dish washing detergent is sold.

and scrap the food off the dishes but do not rinse then and run the hot water at the sink ,before you run the dishwasher , to dissolve the detergent ,

Excess detergent will also make the dishwasher not clean properly also
