Question about GE 24 in. GSD6260JSS Built-in Dishwasher
I have just moved into this house and the dishwasher has never been used, it is brand new. However, when I plug the dishwasher in, it makes this high pitch buzzing noise. No buttons work, all it does is buzz.
SOURCE: dishwasher not always draining
If the dishwasher drains through the vent pipe on your sink it may be clogged. I had that problem as well. Unscrew the vent cap and look for junk. In my case of all things it was dog hair!!

The same thing happens with my dishwasher. I have made it work by doing the following. When you start up the cycle, turn the dial to just a tick before "start." If you hear the buzzing, but no water is running, unlock and then lock the dishwasher door again. This usually gets it running. If it's still not running water, unlock, advance the dial a little bit, and lock again. This should work. You need to be around for the early parts of the dishwashing cycle because this machine tends to stop up and buzz without running water until it gets past "short wash." Every time this happens, do the same thing, unlock and lock, and advance the dial a little when necessary. Once you get past "short wash," it should complete the wash without intervention.

The part you are referring to is the pump out solenoid. ( part # WD21X10071) When the dishwasher is suppose to pump out, power is applied to the solenoid and it swings a flap inside the pump assembly to divert the pumped water out the drain instead of up into the dishwasher. If there are no signs of water leakage at the solenoid arm, I'd just ignore the noise. Note: Newer models use a separate drain pump and no longer use the pump out solenoid.

hello. thanks for choosing fixya. honestly I do recommend that you get a new one. By the time you get your current one repaired you will have almost as much money in it as a new one and you will miss out on lots of things the new ones offer now such as: much more efficient use of power, much more efficient use of water, much quieter. and a much better wash. Regards, J.

Testimonial: "I was hoping for some magic answer, but I think he is right, time for a new dishwasher!"
My delay start switch does not work and the dishwasher beeps periodically throughout the day. Also, I have it set for a 109 minute cycle and after about 20 minutes it says that I only have 35 minutes left in the cycle! Any suggestions?
