Question about GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher
Never had a problen with unit till week ago. Had to clean out the drain. But now, the washer wont fill. There is continuity at the valve, but no power to the valve. Is there a relation between the cycle / energy option switches and the fill valve? Or maybe the timer has just all of a sudden gone out... any help?
SOURCE: Washer not cycling
I manually turned the impeller on the motor and "broke it loose". I found out if you don't use the washer for even a small period of time the motor may do this.

Had the same problem with ours today. That's why I got on here. My dad used a gallon jug to prime it with a gallon of hot tap water. We primed it to get it pumping, and now it is working fine. Just pour the hot water into the dishwasher and start it.

The average life of a dishwasher is 7-10 years. The symptoms strongly indicate a motor pump problem and my personal opinion is if that is the case youd be better to put the money toward a new dishwasher.

This is one problem I researched for GE dishwashers and however..it appears to be a universal problem with lots of brands...The float get stuck in one position or the other...you can see it inside the DW...(round like a half round ball....pull it out see if it is gunked up and clean it out replace it and make sure it moves up and down freely...all the while you should here a clicking noise. Anyway here is what I also found...similar or exactly the same as I said but with some extra info that may suit your model.....
The issue was a full overflow trap which pushes up a toilet-style float and trips a small switch. This effectively freezes the dishwasher in "drain" cycle and for whatever reason puts the panel on Heated Dry. Caused by too much soap or accidental or accumulated inclusion of regular or hand soap (from dishes w/ soap in them in the sink).
Taking off the toe kick and removing a couple panels under the dishwasher lets you barely see the tiny tray that is the culprit, and you can sneak paper towels into one edge of it to dry it out and return it to service.
Hopr this helps...good luck and good day...thank yopu for rating my effort.....The Fang.
