Why is my dishwasher not heating?

If you have your dishwasher connected to the cold water supply then it’s highly likely that a faulty heating element or thermostat are the cause of the water not heating. The heating element is a coil which is responsible for turning the water hot that comes in to your dishwasher.

Do I need heated dry on dishwasher?

Save energy: The heated drying cycle uses more energy than the room-temperature air-drying cycle or air-drying alone. This will save on your electricity bill. Protect dishes: The extra period of heat may warp or melt any delicate items in your dishwasher, including plastics or woods.

Does a GE Profile dishwasher have a filter?

The filter in the base of a GE Profile dishwasher traps large pieces of debris that could otherwise clog the drain. Clean the filter whenever it appears to be clogged to keep your GE Profile dishwasher running smoothly. Removing the filter allows you to clean it thoroughly.

Why is water standing in the bottom of my dishwasher?

Water in the bottom of the dishwasher results from clogs in the filter, garbage disposal, drain hose, drain pump, or air gap. When food or sediment build up within these systems, the dishwasher won’t drain properly. Locating the blockage and clearing the debris will solve the problem.
