Try removing the bottom panel with washer off look for small fan on motor turn to make sure it is turning free. This happens a lot with the snowbirds in Fl. Simple fix.

SOURCE: ge potscrubber dishwasher will not

Had the same problem with my dishwasher. Took it appart thinking that something was plugging the drain but there wasn't anything. Turns out the cylinoid that has the hook coming out of it to control the flap for the ejection of the water is broken. When looking at your pump, you should see a small flapper valve on the exterior of the pump hooked up to a small cylinoid that when accivated flips a flap in the pump to eject the water out of it instead of letting it circulate in the unit. This is an easy part to replace, but for me, hard to find since my potscrubber is so old. Hopefully your units are newer and you can find this part at your local appliance shop.

most likely you have a bad motor when replacing the motor ihave found it is cheaper to get the pump with the motor attached where as they charge you more money for just the motor or the pump seprately try allbrands appliance parts they seem to be cheaper

Dishwasher starts in any type of cycle, runs for a minute, then shuts off as the lights blink out.


in general your wash motor can cause that. It gets old and you can hear the wash motor making a rumbling noise when it turns on. The increased load with cause a thermal coupler to turn the unit off.

Dishwasher won't drain at the end of the cycle


Whenever an appliance does operate its pumps/valves heaters correctly for part of a cycle then doesnt at another point, it is a problem with the controller of the sequence in the cycle.. On older devices this can be a rotating knob that slowly runs to end of cycle triggering events as it turns, by tripping blade switches near the rotating item. On these the switch trigger points can be inspected and sometimes repaired. On newer items the cycle is controlled electronically, and you have to replace the whole control unit, which is usually a large expensive part that includes the display and all buttons. Try getting a used control unit from Ebay and swapping it out, or consider replacing the whole appliance.

Dishwasher


GE 720 Potscrubber I started with the water puddling in bottom now it progressed to leaking on the floor. I had a repair guy come to my home yesterday and he says a broken seal and my total cost to replace seal and labor is $165 plus tax.
What is the life expectancy? He did not sound too promising about the future of my dishwasher and said he is certain there will be another repair need shortly something related to the water saturating an area underneath the dishwasher?
He reccomended I call Sears and replace with a Whirlpool product. He claimed he put his kids thru college repairing GE products. My husband wants to repair and I dont because of fear of spending more money!
