Our dining table looked like this:
GE had shipped these parts to us. The grit issue in our water has created a problem for the dishwasher. Hard water is hard on a dishwasher. Explains why we’ve replaced more dishwashers than any other appliance in the 36 years we’ve lived here. The repairman also thinks the water may not be hot enough to dissolve the detergent. Maybe a liquid detergent is part of the solution.
We really like this dishwasher, and it’s only 7 years old
The repairman was here in August and cleaned it out the best he could and then ordered all those replacement parts. We joked that they probably had to manufacture them in China and ship them to the East Coast at which point they were loaded on a truck to make the cross country trip. It took that long.
Two repairmen showed up because they thought they would have to pull out the whole machine to make the repairs. The replacement parts weren’t sufficient. One more part is needed. We can use the dishwasher and they will be back next week with what we hope is the final installment.
