Re: dishwasher

Could be a stuck motor. With unit unplugged, tilt unit back and turn blades on motor by hand until they break free.

My GE Triton dishwasher won't drain. How do I de-clog it?

Remove the dishwasher drain line from the under sink connection. Direct that end to a bucket and run the drain option on the dishwasher.

1. Does water drains to the bucket. Then your under sink hook up to the dishwasher is clogged. Clean it with a screw driver.

2. No drain water comes to the bucket then

2.1 When on drain do you hear a humming noise. If yes then your drain motor working. That means mostly your dishwasher drain line clogged.

2.2 If humming noise is like a fan (impeller) running then drain line clogged.

2.3 If humming noise is like a small struggling to run. Then something stuck in the drain motor impeller.

Dishwasher is humming when turned on like pump noise but not starting the program

the first thing any dishwasher does is drain, so if its humming instead of the normal noise there will be a piece of glass or something similar stuck in the drain pump it will need to be removed and cleaned out

Dishwasher does not fill with water. It hums as if it is trying to work.

If there is water in your inlet and on switch of program there is water coming into the washer, it is possible that the Hum you are hearing is the inlet valve/pressure pump that is not activating.
It might be getting warm if humming for a while and you can check this out. Remove the unit and checkit out onthe table by applying voltage for the water flow or pumping. Dirt accumulation can make it stuck and if not replace .

Dishwasher fills with hot water then does nothing

Do you get any humming noise when you turn it ON?

How long its been you used the dishwasher last time...?

If you are getting an humming noise then Sounds like the water circulator pump is stuck. The motor tries to turn it (humming noise), but cannot. So a breaker trips (self reset). Not claiming this is actually the problem, but this is what the motor turns.

Machine will not go through program,

Basically, the wash motor is jambed. Gain access to it and turn the pump shaft. If jambed, it will then loosen up and function again. If it is free to turn, the capacitor has then short circuited.(replace the cap).

Dishwasher starts to fill then just hums

Sounds like a motor problem. Behind the chopper is an access to the impeller, try turning the impeller or the chopper blade and see if the motor will rotate. If it doesn't, then something is stuck preventing the motor from running.

Dishwasher gets stuck after first rinse

all programs start with drain put a little water in by hand, start a program and see if water comes out of the drain hose. things to check are if drain hose is plumbed in under sink, check no blockage in this area. if drain hose not running, then listen carefully for a low humming noise. if there is, this indicates a foreign object stuck in drain impellor. if youhave a multimeter, check if there is power to the drain pump
