How to test a WD26X10045 pump

Water was filling. And then nothing. After I took out the motor and cleaned all of the connections and installed it, it ran but failed to complete the full cycle. The cycle was still on, but it was not washing just filling and draining according to the timer. I found the service mode manual. I engaged service mode several times. Sometimes the primary pump would go on right away. Sometimes only by changing options continuously. Other times it would not engage at all. Also #3 (rinse/release soap) on service mode never works, but when the tub has water I hear dripping, I'm not sure what that option is supposed to do. I saw somewhere that it may be the capacitor, but that (10 uf MFD 300 Volt VAC) specific capacitor is not available for sale. The ones that I found are 1- Capacitor 10mfd, 10 Mfd, 10uf, 250vac Adp Type,true Voltage, Motor and 2- 97F9002 - 10 uf MFD 370 Volt VAC - GE Oval Run Capacitor Upgrade. I'm not sure that these are the right options.

SOURCE: Dishwasher doesn't drain

Greg, if the model number ends in GO1, your dishwasher has a piston nut assy. thats problably giving you the grief. If this assy. goes bad you will have water left in the tub at the end of the wash. A common GE problem. It's located under the filter screen in the back and just unscrews out. Part number is wd24x199. It's an easy fix. Look up the part on the net to get an idea of what it looks like. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Dishwasher fills w/ water, does not wash, but does drain.

Joel, it's hard to tell whats going on here without the full model number. The number you posted should start with a 665, 363,587 or 464.  Here is a couple of things to look for.  It sounds like you have a seperate drain pump. Remove the bottom toe panel and hopefully there will be a tech sheet behind it.  Check the harness to the motor itself.  You want to verify that there is 120V going to it when the wash motor should be running. If you hear the motor humming and kicking out on the overload, then we can assume you have something stuck in the impeller or the motor is bad itself. The tech sheet will give you a diagram for the hot and nuetral.  Check the float switch inside the tub, it should move freely up and down. This is a safety device to insure the dishwasher does not overfill.  If this is a 665,  there will be a start capacitor on the left side of the wash motor.  If one of the wires came off the cap,  the motor won't run.  Regarding the door switches,  if you have 120V going to the motor during the wash cycle, you can assume the door switches are o.k.   Hope this gets you started in the right direction...Catriver.

SOURCE: GE Nautilus won't drain after Rinse Cycle

Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects. Also check the hose connected to the disposal. Mine apparently had a kink in it. When I straightened the hose the dishwasher drained at full speed (I recently had a plumber re-route a hot waterline. He must has bent the hose). Hope this helps. If not go to the GE website. That's where I found my answer.

I have a SP 300 Pedestal Sump Pump that isn't pumping out the water in my crawlspace and the motor is constantly running.


I would check the input of the pump, exit and the hoses for being plugged up. The shaft of the motor may also not be connected to the pump impeller for some reason. Sometimes the impeller gets clogged with junk. Take the pump out, and clean it out first and see if that solves your problem. you can test it in a 5 gallon pail filled with water.

Top 10 frontload washer problems

1)Water fill problem: water took more than 10 minutes to fill to desired level sometimes indicated as a LF/IE or long fill/inlet error. Water valve screens clogged, hoses kinked, low water pressure, unpaid water bill. Check hose, clean screens.
2)Excessive vibration: noisey,roar, knocking noises. Bad damper,bearing or broken trunnion. no error code
3)Dispenser drawer open/detergent in wrong compartment: washer will not operate with drawer open or cleaning products in wrong compartment.
4)Washer won't drain: clogged pump/filter, slow or clogged drain usually indicated as a LD/DE, if a code is given (long drain/drain error) Clear pump of objects
5)Drum overfilled: usually caused by sediment in the water level pressure sensing tube going up to the main control.Find it and blow out the sediment, re-secure pump out water and retry.
6)Door open, Door not latched, clothes/objects keeping door from completely closing. Tighten door latch, add washers if nessisary to make good contact and close door tighter in case of leaks.Note some models send a signal to the motor and another to the control letting both know the door is secure before proceeding, corrosion gets into the lid lock and the door can be locked and the control is ready but the motor ain't getting the message.
7)Cold water does not enter washer: hoses connected backwards. Oops.
8)Oversudsing: Wrong Detergent, too much detergent, detergent in wrong dispensing drawer, turbidity monitors pick up particles in the water and judge soil content then the washer allows for extra time to wash the clothes, if the wrong detergent is in there the machine thinks that is too much and declares a suds error. On some models a suds detect is determined by the motor over amping, most machines will try a few mini loads to correct the problem. Remove detergent, retry
9)Locked motor: error LE,loose connection,broken wire/hallsensor, motor overheated/failed.
10)Water heating error, hE, the thermister/heater is out.

  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission
  • Inspect the Agitator
  • Inspect the pump coupling
  • Test the Water switch level
Good luck !!!

Humming pump throws beaker


It's because you may have a defective starting capacitor or a stuck-up motor or pump. If you know how to check a capacitor, do so. If not try replacing the old one. If the problem still persist, try to turn the shaft with your hand. If you can't turn it. You might have a defective motor or pump bearings.

Asko 620 not spinning and not agitating


Clean armature and replace brushes. When you remove the brushes the shut a small pin like device maybe protruding from the brush tip. this is a sure clue.

Won't start


It sounds like you have a food blockage or some blockage between where the water fills up and where it goes into the pump you need to take out the water wand (the rotating thing with water coming out) only the bottom one. You need to unscrew the water wand and make sure nothing is blocking in there.

If not then check your filter which should be next to the water wand remove it and then clean it and make sure nothing in in there to block water getting through.

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask
