I have had that situation happen to me twice. The answer was that a small piece of bone ( or similar ) had stuck in the valve opening preventing the water flow. When we cleared it the machine resumed normal operation._

SOURCE: On certain cycles, the motor makes a very loud humming noise.

quite possible that noise is from foriegn debris( ie.chicken bone of pistachio shell, toothpicks) getting into macerator/chopper assy, wouldnt panic just yet, give it a fewloads to try to clear itself, a few screws leading down through the top of motor assy (under lower spray arm should give you access to assy if needed

SOURCE: humming noise

I have seen this SOOOOO many times in my 35+ years in the appliance repair industry.......it is very typical....here you are this is an answer I provided someone with the exact problem not to long ago..............

This is a typical GE problem which I have seen many times...When a DW sets for a while not being used...the motor often freezes up....Take the front (lower panel off....find the motor assembly...(with the DW unplugged!!...very important) reach in with you hand or a screw driver...preferably your hand...at the back of the motor...there should be a impeller blade...you should be able to reach in with a finger and pull it down..it may be resistant so find a way to hold it in place as you reach up to the next impeller blade and pull down further...finally it will all of a sudden free up....after which you plug it back in and start it up...I am also including a step by step (no drain problem check list as you may run into an issue like this if it has not been operated for a while ....notice article # 5).


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there's anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).


This is an add on I thought about later...if you know someone who has or if you have or can get and electrical spray (cleaner/lubricant) it has to be nonconducting......spray for electric motors or coils...it will help prevent this to a degree and the motor will run better.

I hope this helps...Good Luck and good day.....please rate my effort...the Fang

Sounds like the motor is stuck. If your careful you can unplug the dishwasher or turn the breaker off, take the bottom panel off and reach in with your finger and spin the motor assembly.

WHY DOES THE MOTOR ON MY SAMSUNG DISHWASHER RUN ALL THE TIME AND THE LIGHT ABOVE HEAVY BLINK?


Yes, you've got a leakage error, which means water has leaked down into the base of the dishwasher. The drain pump runs all the time, trying to get all the water out, but the drain pump can't get to the water down in the base. (Those North Korean engineers/designers aren't too bright.) You'll have to pull the dishwasher out, pull off the side panels, and dry up all the water before that drain pump will stop running. But you still have the problem of figuring out where the leak came from and fixing the problem before you can use the dishwasher. The most common source of leakage in a Samsung DW is the drain pump and/or drain hose.

The motor on my Miele washing machine is running constantly even when not set on a programme. The water seems to empty out as soon as it comes in. I Have to release the Stop /Start button to stop motor.


what motor do you mean the motor that spins the drum or the pump motor if its the pump motor i would check the programmer as it tells the pump when to run, on a rinse water evacuate cycle it would seem that you are stuck in that mode call a loacl engineer

There seems to be no water preassure comming out of my krystal clear deluxe salt water system, model# 8111. What could be wrong? I have lost my manual and the system is indicating code 90.


sounds like air lock
disconnect skimmer ( if you use one) from inside of pool
make sure the tube going from pool to pump has no debris at the motor housing
hair can build up there then trap other debris
no open you bleeder caps till water runs freely
once water is coming out and you do not hear air turn on the pump
let run for a minute then close the caps

No water coming out when I backwash. I cleaned


water level must be about the discharge (eyeball) in the pool to back wash. Check the hose connections to make sure that hoses off the the filer head are going to the right place Look for the words "Pump" , "pool" and "waste" molded into the valve. I've seen it a number of times where "Pump" and "pool" were connected the wrong way.

Our dishwasher is not running through all cylcles


Either:

1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.

Good luck,

You,ve done a good job the first time the pump fail MikieM. You can do it again. We sometimes forget to empty our pocket. Some small metal things could have gotten into the pump...could be other hard foreign object. Good luck.
