SOURCE: General Electric dishwasher model potscrubber 1410

So due to this water is still left in the bottom correct? you would have to remove the drain line where it connects into the sink area and also check inside the hole that the hose connects into the sink for any blockages if there are none found here then you would deinstall the dishwasher pull the unit out and check where the drain line connects to the pump. If you also found nothing in the other end of the line then you would disconnect the pump and assure nothing is stuck in the pump and that the impellar can spin freely. lastly you would reassemble the pump and drain hose but you would drain the unit into a bucket and still have the unit pulled out then start the dishwasher and assure there are no leaks. IF you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick

Wont fill with water

Other than the possibility that a shut off valve on the water line feeding the dishwasher was turned off for any reason, I had a similar problem on a different model and it turned out to be an electric valve that is under the dishwasher front kick panel that needed to be replaced. If it doesn't open no water can flow into the dishwasher during the fill cycle, 4c3igb

Dishwasher won't fill. replaced fill valve assy. checked float switch it's ok. timer seems to be cycling properly but i'm not getting power to fill valve solenoid. Is it the timer or advance module? and...

Since you are this deep into the machine, it would be easy to tell if that is the issue by using a meter to test for continuity THROUGH the switches on the timer. It might be the power supply is not working right to send the voltage to that switch.

Does not fill with water.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Water Inlet Valve

The dishwasher has an electrical water valve called a water inlet valve. If the dishwasher won't fill with water, the water inlet valve might be defective. These valves are not repairable and will have to be replaced.

The float assembly is normally inside the dishwasher near the door on the floor of the dishwasher. If something gets stuck underneath it and holds the float assembly up, the dishwasher won't fill with water. If the float assembly moves freely up and down, the float switch might be defective.

Float Switch

The float switch is actuated by the float assembly. It is a protection device designed to prevent the dishwasher from overfilling. If the dishwasher won't fill with water, it may be because this float switch is defective or stuck.

Water Supply Problem

The dishwasher is connected to the hot water supply from the house. Check to be sure the household water supply valve is turned on. Over time, calcium deposits can build up in the water supply valve or in the small filter screen inside the water inlet valve. The water supply line may need to be removed from the water inlet valve of the dishwasher, then run some water into a bucket to see if there is enough pressure. Be certain to turn off the water before working on the water line.

My Beko dishwasher model number DWD 4310 has stopped working and now trips the electricity when you turn it on.

Dishwashers are appliances that work in the kitchen to clean dishes. It has rules to govern its use and when those rules are broken, the dishwasher will fail to work. The General Electric dishwasher is a great addition to kitchen appliancesmag-glass_10x10.gif and also has a set of maintenance rules to ensure proper functioning. If for some reason the machine decides to malfunction, there are a few troubleshooting ideas to look into.
  1. Eliminate abnormal odors in your General Electric dishwashermag-glass_10x10.gif by removing any food particles found on the bottom of the machine. Locate any plastic, paper or other debris blocking the pump inlet and remove. Unblock the spray arm jets with a paper clip.
  2. Step 2 Do not overload the dishes, as this can cause poor drying. See that the dishes are not touching each other. Make sure the water temperature is between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit for best drying performance.
  3. Step 3 Check under the sink to locate the water valve found on the water line. If your dishwasher is not filling up with water, make sure the valve is open. Turn the valve all the way to the left.
  4. Step 4 Make sure the water pressure isn't too low if the dishwasher isn't filling up completely. Water pressure must be 20 to 120 psi. Make sure that the inlet water hose connected to the dishwasher is not kinked. Remove the toe-kick plate on the front of the bottom of the dishwasher to check the hose.
  5. Step 5 Notice whether or not the dishwasher drains while filling, as this is a sign of either an air gap in the drain hose, or the loop from the floor to prevent backflow of water isn't 32" high. If either problem is located, fix it. Check the water level when the fill cycle has completed. The level should be just under the heating element. If it is not, you will know the water is draining while filling.

GE Dishwasher Model # GSD2400N00WW Starts but I do not get any water. How to check for the problem? Thank You!

First check under the sink to see it the supply valve is on. Next listen to the unit when it should be filling, do you hear and spitting, or water sounds? If not the inlet valve may be bad or the inlet valve screen may just be full of debris from the hot water pipes (common problem) and needs to be cleaned. It is possible as well that the controller, or timer is not giving a signal for the valve to open but this is less likely.

General Electric Pot scrubber Dishwasher

From what you are describing, the fill valve may have failed or become clogged. Start the dishwasher, when the water stops filling, open the door and check the water level. There should be at least an inch to an inch of water in the center of the tub. If not, replace the water inlet valve.

If you need further assistance, let me know with a model number
