Question about GE Dishwashers
I looked at the picture posted above and I realize that I have been trying to move the "vane" at the wrong place. When I removed the panel, I see the back side of the motor. At the backside there are some vents and inside something that roatates with finger easily. But as I look at the picture, the vane is located on or closer to the front of the motor. Correct? There I was able to feel a large Blade and inside something that was very hard to move. So, it is stuck. I will try to put some pressure there and see if I can get it released. I guess it should move clockwise? Am I right? Thnx for all your help and would appreciate a response.
Washer fills with water, the solonoid engages but the motor does not turn. Spinning the wanes the motor turns both ways freely.
A. How can I check the motor to make sure it's working properly?
B. What should I consider next as the issue?
C. Give that a replacement motor is $130 online what other options for replacement do I have? Should I shop for a new dishwasher since the motor is 1/3 the price?
Buy new dishwasher, if you spend the money on the motor plus your labour yo will still have an old one at that and next time something else will go wrong , like the solenoid or timer or circuit board or the impeller seals, etc. Vitally
