Re: echo and fast light on together

This is a bad control board that if replaced will only repeat in a short time .My advice is to contact the manufacturer and complain,you have the right as a consumer to do so.

This model had two styles of motors which often became stuck. First secure power
to the unit at the breaker panel. Then remove lower cover. If the motor is square you can unstick it by moving the fins which are visible on the end of the motor shaft.
Also check for a broken off aluminum fin which occasionally happened due to poor casting which jams the motor.

If it has a black round motor, there is a fan blade located between the motor and pump,
there may be a small plastic cover there or not, reach between the pump and motor and rotate the fan blade to free the motor. Lube with silicone spray.
While doing this also check free movement of triangle shaped piece of plastic, it is the drain valve controlled by the drain solenoid. If it does not move then the solenoid has failed, (remove C clip and two philips screws behind to replace it).
Lastly, make sure disposal is working if you have one. if it does not work the dishwasher will not drain. There is a small red reset and in the center a 1/4 inch hex hole to use an allen wrench to free disposal on most models. Hope this helps.

LE on display

I just had my LG dishwasher fixed. I told the repair man that LE light was comming on. Even over the phone the repairman said its probably broken wires on the door. Me being in construction for years looked around the door for wires. Anyway the repairman took off 6 screws around the door, took the cover off. You will see about 50 wires taped together. He pulled them aside and visually checked them one by one. Sure enough two were broken in two. He twisted them together put tape and he was gone. $87.50 Still Working!

The motor makes a weird whirring loud noise but the gears seem to be turning still the arms are still turning and the water is going in fine it seems to be any time the dishwasher is on and in any cycle....

So it turns out that it was the disposer blades right behind the motor that were causing the problem. I took the filter off of the drain and found I had a piece of glass and a plastic army man gun trapped in the filter to the drain that the blades were hitting and stuck on. I took them out made sure the blades spun freely and then replaced the filter. It works as good as new!

The pump motor seems to be jammed on my GE Model GSD2000j I was gone for a few months and it stuck on the 1st wash when I returned. The motor will not turn freely and is buzzing and heating up . Can I free...

Dishwasher motors are susceptible to getting stuck if not used regularly. Manually spin the motor to free it up. Dishwasher motors are not serviceable and must be replaced if found defective.But try to access the bushings/bearings and put a few drops of lubricant then spin it manually to free it up.

My dishwasher won't actually turn on this morning. When I push the start button, it hums, and the lights by the cycles flash, for about two minutes, but it won't actually run through a cycle.

Your motor is probably stuck.
Remove power from the D/W.
Remove the lower access panel. The motor will be in front of you.
Turn the blades in the end of the motor counterclockwise until the motor turns freely. You will need a flat screwdriver to reach in and turn the blades.
When it frees, repower and try it again.

Dishwasher makes a loud grinding noise when running.

Start by pulling out the lower rack. Then pull the nut off the top of the lower spray arm. then remove all of the visible hex head screws. lift up on this section. this should expose another level of hex head screws, then they should be removed and this section should be lifted up. once you reach the chopper blade, remove the obstruction, and put back together.

Stuck motor?

bert, to get to the sump and chopper assy. First remove the lower spray arm by holding the top tab and turning the spray arm off. Next grab a hold of the rear feed and turn it to the right until it unsnaps from the rear feed assy. Now you remove the filter and accumulator assy. It has torq screws, remove and lift off. Now the chopper cover will be on the left, one torq screw and it will lift off exposing the chopper blade. This is probably where it's jammed. Look at the attached pics. It will help you. Catriver.
