Check if you have at least 120 degree water temperature coming into the dishwasher. Check if the upper rack spray arm is turning during cycle. Does dishwasher sound normal, like you can hear strong water spray inside it?
Hello, One Ge dishwasher when they sit for a long time and dont get used the most tends to stick. IN most cases its pretty easy to unstick it. To do that remove the lower panel below the door and you will see the pump/motor assambly, If your dishwasher is older their will be a black fan blade between the pump and motor,turn it and you fell some resistiance at first but by turning fan blade you will fell it pop free. If their is no black fan blade the fan is in the rear of the motor(aluminum colored part) turn the fin in the rear of the motor and once again it will pop free.After freeing up if you dont use regulally just start for at least 30 seconds every week and it wont stick.
The pump/motor assembly on these dishwashers have a soft food cutter
that helps to cut up smal soft food particles. This may be your problem.
These cutter blades can sometimes get loose or something can get hung
up in them like a broken piece of glass or some other pieces of trash
that they can not handle.
You can access these blades by removing the sump cover near the rear of
the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher. remove the bottom rack and
take a couple of screws out of the sump cover. you can feel down in
the sump and see if there is any trash caught up here or in the blades.
If this is not the problem and you have an older dishwasher - you could
have a problem with a loose fan blade in the motor. If this is the case I
would run it til it dies. The motor/pump assembly is about $125+.
The newer motors are a lot quieter.
If everything is working ok. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
Check the food grinder (small blade spins against a screen) in the bottom of the dish washer drain. I found the grinder to be inoperative and clogged which reduced / stopped flow of the wash water. Also, small pieces of clear plastic food wrap can block flow.
Hi, the problem here is you have a piece of glass or something similar caught in the chopper blade. Pull the lower spray arm out and then remove the screws and the filter and the rest of the assembly inside the dishwasher until you get to the chopper blade. Then remove the debris. Put the dishwasher back together and you should be all set. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike
If you are unable to put it back on while the nut is still attached to the inside of the dryer, reach in and unscrew the upper arm nut. Remove it, reattach the arm to the white plastic piece and reattach the entire assembly by screwing the nut back onto the inside of the dishwasher. Very simple to do and doesn't take much strength at all. In fact, I'm usually the one that has to do it at our house, not my husband, because I can reach in and do it without removing the top rack where as he would have to remove the top rack because his arms are too big.
It worked for me .I have a danby countertop dishwasher. I took off the metal top I looked under on the left side to find the pump I took both hoses off the pump and took off the little fan. i took off the little metal bracket behing the little fan. and unscrewed the little pump to take it out. the little metal piece that the fan was on wouldn't even move.So i sprayed it down with wd and it started moveing again then a screw fell out.so i found where it went(inside the motor which the fan and metal piece move) got the tweezers and replced it. oiled it some more and put it all back together. Perfect.
