When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all
remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular
washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few
minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'.
When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20
times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time,
the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly,
everything works fine, including the rinsing.
I would check tosee if your water meaning hot water temp is hook up correctly. i have seen cold water going to machine and causing the machine to do funny things. 1 the unit drains.2. it fills.3.it washes if the water is cold there is your problem .make sure b4 you start machine the water going in is hot. let me know how you made out maybe we can further check. p.s im a old bosch tech:)
Most diswashers have a complete cycle that lasts over an hour. The machine fills with about 1.5-2 quarts of water, rinses the dishes for a few minutes, then empties the water, then fills again with new water and rinses for a few more minutes, then empties. This is to get a good bit of the looser gunk off the dishes, and to soften up any other stuff that has dried on there. Then the machine fills a third time, the soap door pops open, and it washes for a much longer time to hopefully dissolve away pretty much anything left on the dishes. Then it empties, and does a rinse the soap off cycle, and usually a final cycle that rinses again with a little bit of rinse agent to help them dry quickly.
If a dishwasher runs but doesn't fill, either something is wrong with its water supply system or it is draining water too soon.
First make sure the water is turned on. Check the hot-water supply stop
valve, normally located under the sink. Open it all the way by turning
it counterclockwise. If there is no reason this would have been turned
off since the last time the dishwasher worked, go on to the next step.
2) Turn off the power to the dishwasher.
When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher;
this is usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the
tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and
down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are
out the float mechanism, and clean around the float tube. Many floats
must be disconnected from below; to do this you'll have to remove the
lower access panel. Rinse off the float, replace it in the tube, and
make sure it moves up and down freely.
If you're experienced with minor repair work, shut off the hot-water
valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the
dishwasher's bottom front panel; disassemble the valve to reveal the
screen; clean debris from the screen; and reassemble. If the screen
doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson
You said, I have GE Madellion 870 Washing machine I guess I have motor problem motor stops after smoke Now Motor spins for few second then stops after 15~ 20 minutes, it will run again for few seconds if my motor burned then why it still runs for few seconds.
The motor is shot and it still works until it heats up, and then it binds up after it over heats!
How old is the appliance?
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy. Therefore they pay for them selves in only a few years. You can buy New and save today.
Find the small privately owned and operated appliance store and you will get better service and good treatment! They also will be the best informed!
Bless You, let me know how it goes. huuum
Please give me a good rating for my fine advice before you sign off. Thank You
With an error code the only way to find and to repair this is,
First unplug the washer and wait a few minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange! If it corrects the problem GREAT!!! WE WIN!
If not only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses. Like we used to be able to fix my own cars, but not today they need diagnostic equipment!

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.
There is a relay on the soap dispenser, if it is a Kenmore quietguard 4, I had the same type of noise, the repairman replaced the dispenser, which to me made no sense, because the relay is activated from the control board. After the $130. for the soap dispenser, he ended up replacing the control board for another $160. Now the dishwasher only goes up to the dry cycle and stops. If you press the heated dry button and then the heated wash button 5 times each, the entire control face will light up and it will do some kind of reset and try a new cycle. I have tried the button pushing and it worked great till it got to the dry cycle, so I am looking for another solution without involving Sears. Good Luck!
Try checking the water level, and level switch? Is the outlet hose high enough of the floor? If you tip the machine back you should see one or two clear plastic tubes, take one end of these and blow through them and the do it the other way round.
