Hi loda83,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: there isnt any water going to your dishwasher and its just making a humming noise when you turn it on

The most likely culprit is the solenoid valve. It is a simple on/off valve under the d/w on the left. Depending on make and model I might remove the d/w from the cabinet to facilitate installation. Don't forget to turn off the water first.

Feel free contact me again!

My GE Triton dishwasher won't drain. How do I de-clog it?


Remove the dishwasher drain line from the under sink connection. Direct that end to a bucket and run the drain option on the dishwasher.

1. Does water drains to the bucket. Then your under sink hook up to the dishwasher is clogged. Clean it with a screw driver.

2. No drain water comes to the bucket then

2.1 When on drain do you hear a humming noise. If yes then your drain motor working. That means mostly your dishwasher drain line clogged.

2.2 If humming noise is like a fan (impeller) running then drain line clogged.

2.3 If humming noise is like a small struggling to run. Then something stuck in the drain motor impeller.

No water getting into the dishwasher


At the bottom of the dishwasher remove the kick panel . Then turn on the dishwasher , and then locate the water inlet valve , it should be on the left hand side with hose going to it . the pipe might be copper or plastic or stainless steel . listen for a humming noise . If you hear a humming noise . there is no water getting to the unit . make sure the hose is not kinked and the water is turned on and clean the screen on the valve . if there is no humming it is bad water valve . ( cleaning the water valve ) remove the incoming water line and remove the screw that holds the valve in . Then remove the 90 degree fitting on the bottom . you will see the screen .

GE Profile dishwasher makes a humming noise


I had the same problem. The issue is due to the top rack water inlet not properly seating against the water line in the rear of the washer. I fixed it by placing heavier items (bowls, glass cups) on the rear of the rack and lighter items (plastic cups) near the front of the rack. As long as I arrange items on the top rack in this way the washer runs silently.

Dishwasher makes a humming/rumbling noise when washing but stops when the water drains.


As the machine gets older, it may start to make other noises due to wear on the various parts. If the machine is working well, leave well enough alone.

Dishwasher wont go into cycle mode and hums


No model and brand name .
the way you mention look like the main motor jammed and making the humming noise click out on overload then the humming noise stop and after a while it will humming again and continue like that until you switch off the machine. If the dishwasher is old I would recommand you buy a new one instead of changing the motor.
God Bless have a nice day Dickson

I have a GE dishwasher; spray arm at the bottom does not rotate.


make sure that there is nothing blocking the racks, no big pots or pans, if thats ok then take out the bottom rack, u will see the sprayer, use something long, a screwdriver should do, u should see a slot in the sprayer at the bottom, stick the driver through it and give it a turn, it will loosen, take it off and make sure it isnt clogged, also, ull see a little cover that looks like a grate, take that off also and make sure it isnt clogged under neath
