Sounds like the pump (not the drain pump) is not able to run. Perhaps something went into it and is jamming the pump. (bones, small pieces of glass, etc).

Dishwasher fills with hot water then does nothing


Do you get any humming noise when you turn it ON?

How long its been you used the dishwasher last time...?

If you are getting an humming noise then Sounds like the water circulator pump is stuck. The motor tries to turn it (humming noise), but cannot. So a breaker trips (self reset). Not claiming this is actually the problem, but this is what the motor turns.

Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water


your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..

Old ge dishwasher


Hi loda83,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: there isnt any water going to your dishwasher and its just making a humming noise when you turn it on

The most likely culprit is the solenoid valve. It is a simple on/off valve under the d/w on the left. Depending on make and model I might remove the d/w from the cabinet to facilitate installation. Don't forget to turn off the water first.

Dishwasher stopped washing just making a humming noise


humming noise is the wash pump energised but not turning.
this can be:
wash pump seized up
foreign object stuck in the pump impellor.
pump capacitor faulty - a common fault. if pump turns freely by hand but not when energised, then the fault is probably the pump capacitor - cheap part

Motor spinning? Arms not turning.....


When the dishwasher fills can you hear the wash motor does it make a humming noise if so it may be blocked if it makes a rattling noise the impellor may have broken off. I dont recommend sticking a screw driver in it from behind you may damage the windings.
