Hello ashankhan,
huuum,happy to assist you!

You said,
I have GE Madellion 870 Washing machine
I guess I have motor problem
motor stops after smoke
Now Motor spins for few second then stops
after 15~ 20 minutes, it will run again for few seconds
if my motor burned then why it still runs for few seconds.

The motor is shot and it still works until it heats up, and then it binds up after it over heats!


How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy.
Therefore they pay for them selves in only a few years.
You can buy New and save today.

Find the small privately owned and operated appliance store and you will get better service and good treatment! They also will be the best informed!

Bless You, let me know how it goes.

The drum stopped spinning, but could still hera motor running. The door was locked; could not unlock to open. After several attempts of unplugging/replugging door could be open.


Is this a dishwasher or a washing machine that you have a problem with.

The drum is usually in a washing machine. The motor you hear running is the drain motor. So this is a normal operation of front loading washing machines. When the drum stops spinning, the drain pump takes away the remaining water and then a timer lock comes into play to make sure the clothes are settled dowm before you can open the door.

So I do not see there is any problem. Please accept the solution if ok else post a comment to confirm the exact problem with your appliance.

GE GSD2000J01WW dishwasher , full of water at bottom of machine


The drain motor (pump out motor) in line with the outlet pipe could be faulty. This motor must spin (to pump out water) in the drain mode. If AC (mains)voltage is across motor in pumpout mode and the motor does not spin indicates that the motor is open circuit and needs replacing. Has one of the 2 motor push on electrical connections dislodged?
Is the outlet pipe obstructed?

The pump motor seems to be jammed on my GE Model GSD2000j I was gone for a few months and it stuck on the 1st wash when I returned. The motor will not turn freely and is buzzing and heating up . Can I free...


Dishwasher motors are susceptible to getting stuck if not used regularly. Manually spin the motor to free it up. Dishwasher motors are not serviceable and must be replaced if found defective.But try to access the bushings/bearings and put a few drops of lubricant then spin it manually to free it up.

Washing machine


well, I guess by the sounds it you guys have belt problem.
Check to see if the belt is not slipping, if is you may have to tighten the belt. it is very simple there are two bolts on the motor,
One has a slot, and one is just a pivot. You have to loosen the pivot bolt a bit then you loosen the bolt that rides in the slot. Then you pull back on the motor to get the right tension on the belt.
That rattle you hear is the spin-clutch realease arm spring check to see if it's missing if it is then that is where the rattle is coming from that spring holds down the clutch arm when the washer is in spin thus preventing the rattle if it's not there or it's broken you have to replace the spring if your'e in Canada stop by greg's appliance repair and he will fix it for Ya!!!

This would be the motor that spins the dish washing unit in the bottom. The noise you hear might mean that the motor will need to be replaced.

It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Check if motor spins. In case it spins, the problem is with the pump ,in case it doesn't spin it could be a motor problem or a motor and pump problem. Good luck
