    OK. I'll do that. Will there be some type of instructions on how to do this?

You probably have a bad water valve. It is not expensive to replace. About 25-30 dollars. Go to an appliance dealer and tell him the model and he will sell you the part. It is fairly easy to replace too.

    Yes, there will be a diagram with the new part that will explain it. I believe specifically the part will be called a solenoid. It does act by an electrical impulse that shuts and opens the water valve. The solenoid actually opens and shuts the valve. When you go to the appliance dealer, tell him about the problem and he will give you the correct part. When mine went bad, it was actually the solenoid that was bad. Good luck and let me know how it turns out.

This is a bad wash pump. Looking at about $175 for just the sump assembly. You could do it yourself, but unit would need to be uninstalled.

Why is it dead?


Check power at the source; there could be a tripped breaker. If power is getting to your dishwasher, there may have been sudden failure of a part, such as the heater.

GE Dishwasher fills with water but does not "spray water" on dish


Here are a few things that might help you out, first is you could have a bad heating element in your dish washer, when it fills with water it has to reach a certain temperature before continuing to the next cycle, next thing is you could have a bad thermostat, or your timer is defective.

GE Natulus will not fill with water


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.

Dishwasher not filling with water


My GE Nautilus, Serial # GSD363F00W, Model # LA774908 is about 3 or 4 years old. I use it at least once a day. It has been working fine. Today I turned it on, red light came on, and I heard activity of some sort inside machine but no water came. Turned washer off, looked inside, no water. Turned machine back on, again heard some sort of activity but again no water came. Tried twisting the dial through the washing cycles, detergent cup dispensed detergent and dry heat come on, but no water.

Dish washer has no water.


Check the faucet first, turn off the faucet, disconnect the dishwasher copper hose, re-open the faucet and check you faucet see if there is water come out, sometimes there is a small stone or sand block the faucet. Good luck, hope this can help, if not we check the others.
