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!

Hello Tom Weiss, There are a couple of things to check.
1. Check connection at the dishwasher. It is possible that the wire nuts came lose. Re-tighten and wrap with electrical tape to secure.
2. Check for a small leak from sink or faucet this has also been the culpret before.

Drainage problem


I had similar problem and rerouted the drain hose like papps54 said. I still had the condition and decided to pull out the drain hose completely to see if there was any debris trapped inside the hose. There was! I removed the hose from the machine completely, cleared out the debris, and let the hose soak in white vinegar overnight. In the meantime, I looked back up the drain outlet and found evidence of debris lodged in there as well. I didn't completely dismantle the dishwasher at this point but I did eventually clear it out as well as the drain filter located inside the dishwasher. After reassembling the drain hose and dishwasher, I cleaned it with baking soda for three nights and now it runs very well with no odors. Runs quieter as well.

Whirlpool 24" built-in GU1200XTLBO dishwasher electrical smell


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.

I was using my dishwasher very little and eventually it became inoperative


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.
