Question about GE Dishwashers
GE Profile Performance III GSD5610D04WW Dishes weren't getting clean,especially on upper rack. Determined water tower was shooting sideways due to broken clips in base. Also, water level wasn't sufficient. Did the following: 1) replaced intake water valve 2) replaced entire base assembly 3) replaced drain flapper Have tried using different cycles. Water level varies during wash and rinse. Usually add 12-16 cups water so upper arm will rotate. Hear a short "click" sound occasionally at beginning of water being pumped. Appears that water drains early during second wash and pump continues to run, even though there isn't much water left.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: Buzzing noise and won't clean
water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once.
It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to
shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this,
replace the inlet valve.or may be its due to
Heater fanIf the heater fan bearings are rusted or worn, they may squeal, or scrape loudly during the drying cycle. If this is the problem, replace the fan motor. Alternatively, the fan blade may be loose. If so, you need to replace it.

SOURCE: Dishwasher not draining water
I had the same problem....removed hoses, checked for cloggs the hole nine yards.....Inside of the unit towards the back in the bottom is a filter cover and in the middle is a valve that you just screw out. It has a rubber stopper that overtime breaks down....I was able to pick up the part locally for about $17CDN, replaced the part and the unit drains properly now.....now I have an issue with no power

Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko D1776 and 2) filling with water, draining, heating, but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump, as you mentioned. What you may not know, is the impeller itself is not serviceable, the entire motor/pump must be replaced unfortunately.
Before declaring it is indeed a motor/impeller issue, you said you hear a quiet sound of a motor starting once the unit has completed filling with water right ? Be sure the unit is actually filling with water, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for....
The pump will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke as I suspect it may be...almost like a fountain, since the Asko are very quiet under normal conditions. You will have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver and look for visual/audible clues. (try placing both spray arms at 12 o'clock position and placing a cup upright in the top rack. If the arms move and the cup fills, you've got circulation...if neither, you don't)
If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump or severed somewhere between the motor and control, maybe where the door pivots during opening...but not likely.
This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s and it is a case of being a victim of their own design.
What happens typically is the ball-bearings from the upper rack holders ( which are plastic, hence fatigues due to heat and fall apart ) come out making their way into the sump, hence breaking the wash impeller from the motor.
Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. If you need direction to remove the circulation motor and pump I can do that, but it is a pretty involved repair and requires pulling the unit from the cabinet. Check those other possibilities first and tell me what you find.
I'll watch for your reply.

the pump is running due to the float switch or the float itself either being stuck open or broken and showing a fault this is why you have water going in to a certain point but not the point required for washing the dishes and then due to the float switch not reaching the proper level and the water rising above the float and the switch not activating is why the drain pump is kicking on to get rid of the water in your unit check to assure the float switch or the float is not stuck and then test the float switch to make sure its working if you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick
