Question about GE 24 in. Profile PDW7880G Built-in Dishwasher
The dishwasher is approx. 5 years old, came with new home purchased in 2003. The panel of dishwasher displays all normal times, different selections for types of washing, adding heat, delay, etc.; BUT when I press START nothing happens; IT will cycle through with the time to it ends and I think the heating/drying may work; BUT NO WASHING occurs; no noise at all? Can someone help?? thanks mack

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.

SOURCE: Dishwasher won't stop washing
Could be a couple things... but let's address the "not draining" first
Have you recently installed a new disposal? Ensure that the drain plug is removed "punched-out". The plug is located where the air-gap or your dishwasher drain-line is directly connected to the disposal.
This can possibly make the rest of the machine malfunction due to the sensing of "sitting" water that is not draining. Ensure you're pump and filter is not clogged from debris (Inside, right, rear of dishwasher or screen type material)
Other than that, the problem can also possibly be your control board ($100+ dollars for part only)

If it's under warranty, get someone to look at it. Probably a bad switch or sensor in the unit, could be something simple, and they're not hard to open up, but the soap dispenser mechanism has to be reassembled (it often falls apart upon taking the door apart). Last resort is the appliance serviceman. New house? New dishwasher? Warranty? That's your best option.

The pump/motor combination is stuck.
Disconnect power to the unit.
Remove the toe-kick panel at the bottom front.
You will see fan fins at the back of the motor.
Turn the fan fins counter-clockwise.Turn to the left and hold the position with a screwdriver. Then turn left again. You will feel when the stuck motor shaft frees itself.
After it frees,resume power and run the dw.
If it does not break free you will have to replace the pump and motor.
