GE PWD7880G00SS - Won't start washing!!!

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

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.

You have the control lock activated. Press and hold the heated dry pad for 5 seconds and it should unlock it

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.

SOURCE: My GE dishwasher will fill then it stops. The wash

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.

My sister year old GE dishwasher won’t start. Ha don’t a power outage and after power came on she tried to start it and wouldn’t work.


If it was running when the power outage happened, that may have "fried" the control panel.
She needs to have it checked by an appliance repair person to see if that is so.
God bless your efforts.

Recently bot a home with a GE Profile dishwasher -- only about 4 years old -- it does not get anything clean -- before replacing it I was told that it might just need some "line" cleaning -- anyone know...


Hello,

Welcome To FixYa.

Before getting into this too far I have a couple of question`s which will enlighten me in which direction to steer you.

First, the home you purchased...do you know if it was un-occupied for an extended period, thus the dishwasher not running for a while ?

Second, after the unit initially starts and is full of water, do you hear the wash motor spraying water at all.

I`ll watch for your response and try to reply asap.

Thank`s,

macmarkus :)

Detergent left in dispenser cup


You either do not have enough water getting itno the machine or it is not hot enough. 5 years old so I would suspect a plugged screen on the fill valve.

Dishwasher will not go into wash cycle.


On the LG LDF6810 dishwasher, the best you can do is remove the bottom spray arm and then the 10 phillips screws that hold the filter down.
Pull the filter out and clean it as best you can.
Inspect the sump area beneath where the filter was. Be careful of broken glass and remove all debris. Use a flashlight and look into every little spot down there. Reassemble the dishwasher and operate your DW.
If you still have problems, I recommend a service call. Check your manual to confirm but most LG dishwashers have a 1 year parts & labor plus a 2 year parts only. Have your proof of purchase ready.

3 year old GE dishwasher dead!


Buy a different brand of washing machine. I suggest a front loading one because they use so little water and they are cost effective and actually pay for themselves.

Rusty dish rack


Clearly a design or manufacturing flaw. I have the same model and the rack is disintegrating after 6 years. I believe it is a manufacturing flaw. Our previous dishwasher rack lasted over 20 years in the same conditions. Same construction, vinyl covered steel. New upper and lower racks cost over 200.00 and there is no guarantee that this won't happen every six years. I recommend a new non-Maytag dishwasher as soon as you can. Meanwhile, limp along with the defective racks.
