I have a GE Potscrubber dishwasher that only hums, won't run

I have a GE Potscrubber dishwasher that I rarely use, but when I tried to use it recently, it just hummed but nothing else happened. When I tried to manually move the dial, water started to come in just past the Rinse and Hold setting but it would not pump the water out.

    This happened to me several years ago on my 1 year old potscrubber dishwasher that was installed in my new house. It was just outside the warranty, so I had to pay. The repairman said it needed a new motor. So for $250 I replaced it. 5 years later, it did the same thing. Threw the thing out. No more cheapy potscrubber dishwashers for me!

I have a portable that had the same problem. I called a repairman and he turned a fan blade on the motor. Mine is located on the right side about 12" in. It gets hung up when it is run often enough. If your problem is the same is mine all you have to do is turn the blade and it works like a charm. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: LG LDF6920ST Dishwasher won't start

With nothing displaying and only the humming sound, it appears that the main controller card (PCB) has most likely failed.

If it were my dishwasher, I would add a pitcher of water (more than two big glasses full), close the door and start a cycle and listen at the drain. The first thing a dishwasher does is run the pump to empty any standing water before it fills up. If you hear that water drain, (and can see that is has drained from inside the dishwasher) it is not as broken as I think it is.

BUT, this dishwasher should be displaying something from the moment you press the power button.

Please post back with what you find and decide you do. OK?

SOURCE: My dishwasher is making a humming sound and does not rinse?

A humming sound can be a failing wash motor (that drives the water pump) or it can be as simple as a blockage in the the pump area beneath the lower spray arm, under the filter.
Remove the spray arm and the filter top (screws will need to be removed)
Use a flashlight and inspect all over the sump area for debris that is blocking/jamming the impeller area. Reasemble and test with a short cycle.
If the dishwasher continues to make the same humming, it is time to replace the wash pump.
Good Luck! Post back here if you would like more guidance.

Hi. My GE Potscrubber 1200, Model GSD120055, stops mid-cycle and does not drain the water. It stops on Rinse and Hold.

I can nudge the dial and the dishwasher completes its cycle, so the drain and pump are okay. Is the problem with the timer or something else ? Please help, O Wizards of Washing.

How do you remove the sprayer arm from a GE potscrubber 600


Thought I had a problem with the spray arm or pump because water was not flowing enough to spray the upper rack. But it turned out it was a simple part missing: the "check valve" that is in the lower neck of the spray arm assembly. It's a $10 part. Part #WD1X5488 for GE Potscrubber 600.

Ge potscrubber 650 Dishwasher is humming when turned on and will fill but not wash and drain


This happens when the DW goes unused for a while. The motor is stuck. Open up the lower panels and move the Motor Fan by hand until it moves freely. This worked for me until a seal broke.

Freeing the motor may break the seal between the motor and pump assembly. I'm in the process of replacing that now.

Check for leaks by running the DW before putting the lower panels back on.

My GE Potscrubber Dishwasher doesn't spray water when it is turned on. It has power.


If you turn it on and hear a slight hum after water fill the motor is locked from non use. You will need to remove bottom panel and with power off you will see the motor right in the middle near the front. This is called a side winder motor because of how it sits. There are some blades you can turn to unlock the motor. Once the motor breaks loose which you will be able to tell when it does, turn power back on and let run thru complete cycle with heat dry in the off position. GE are about the only ones out there that will do this and it is usually from lack of use. Hope this helps.
