Most likely the water evaporated and the pump seal dried out, causing it to stick. Try pouring a quart or so of hot (not boiling) water into it, letting it set for a few minutes, then starting it. If the motor still just hums, with some brands you can access the motor shaft or cooling fins under the motor and break the seal free by turning the motor shaft by hand.

Particle residue on glasses in top basket for glasses at the corners


The oldest dishwasher I have replaced was a Kithcenaid installed in 1953. It was a 24" built in with a smaller door, a handle looked like it was for a safe, and it had an s-trap underneath. The 90 year old customer said it did the same thing. My advice is to run a dishwasher cleaner through a hot cycle according to manufacturers directions. Check the holes in the spray arms carefully for any debris. Our service guys advise not to use gel or liquid type soap as it leaves a tiny residue after each load which will eventually clog your internal plumbing. Always use the least amount of soap you can get away with and POWDER is prefered.

This may be the smell of Varnish used in motor winding. When we turn on the machine it gets heated a little bit resulting in a burning electrical smell.

DISHWASHER WAS SEJ\LDOM USED AND EVENTUALLY BECAME COMPLETELY INOPERATIVE


Hi bnedict,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your statement didn't include a question so we'll assum you want to know if you should repair it.

If it has a few years on it, it's my opinion that repairing it is like throwing good money after bad. I would seriously recomend replacement.

Feel free contact me again!
