GE dishwasher will not start cycle

My 8 year old GE dishwasher has power and water supply hooked up, but when engaged there is only a humming sound but no water pumped into the washer??? Could it be like on a clothes washer, a defective water inlet valve? Thanks,

Yes,it could be a deffective inlet valve. But before replacing it check first water inlet line's filters (on its both sides) In case it will not help- test that the valve get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it from scale or other dirt. Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new one Good luck!

Have you checked for power to the pump???

It sounds like you are not even getting power to the pump... the relay on the main board is not sending the power to the pump, so it will not run because of no power coming to it...

Check for power and replace the board if there is no power...if you get power at the pump, it is installed incorrectly or you have a bad pump...even new ones are bad sometimes...

GE Dishwasher motor hums but doesn't engage.

These motors will stick sometimes during periods of not being used. With the power turned off to the the dishwasher, remove the front lower grille. There are usuallly 2 screws on each side of the panel. Looking under the D/W your will see the motor and pump assembly. If you feel around you should be able to feel the motor's cooling fan. Simply rock the fan back and forth and the motor/pump should become unstuck.

I have a GE dishwasher with the following model number: GSD3230F00WW. Last night, while the dishwasher was in the clean cycle, a buzzing/grinding sound came from underneath the dishwasher. I removed the...

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.

No water to water/ice dispenser

My old GE stopped working not too long ago too. Same thing, water to the back and no further. I replaced the pump ($25) and it worked fine. I found the pump at an appliance repair shop, they ordered it for me, a few screws and such and it worked! Good luck.
