GE Potscrubber Disshwasher GSD700G, wont cycle

Water fills in but doesn't cycle. Also, after a couple minutes, I smell a mild burning. I didn't use it for sometime. Had been working great before I let it sit unused.

Checked the motor vin, it moves freely. So, what could be wrong? The knob rotated slowly, so it cant be the knob. Isn't the washer supposed to start washing immediately after the initial water fills in?

    Sorry, if I could not explain whats going on here.When I turn the washer knob to ON position, I hear a bit of water spraying in the washer.After that stops, nothing happens. Isn't the wash cycle supposed to start immediately after the water has been sprayed when turned ON? After a minute or so, I manually rotated the knob and then I heard a Click at some point in time. Nothing happens. Except that more water filled in. After that nothing happens. So, I manually moved the knob back to OFF positon,,because I did smell a little burning. Water is now sitting at the bottom of the washer.. I am going to romve that water now manually by sponge.

    Now pls tell me what could be wrong. If I recall correctly when I was using the washer, the wash cycle used to start immediately or a few seconds after the water sprayed when I turned it on ON position.

Most washers do not fill they spray the dishes. When enough water has accumulated in the bottom a float switch shuts off the water and turns on the pump to remove the water. If the pump motor does not remove the water the cycle will not continue but the timer will. There may be something clogging the pump and resulting in an overload condition for the motor. This would account for the smell. A pump may turn freely when you spin it by hand because you cannot spin it fast enough by hand to determine if the pump is obstructed. Does the cycle drain the water? If the cycle stops and there is water in the bottom not being pumped out then you should look at the pump and the motor to determine problem.

Cycle begins and we can hear water filling up, but the arm doesn't spin, and water isn't being "sprayed" around the washer. We can hear the dishwasher "clicking" throughout the cycle, but nothing else is...


There are a couple of things here. One is the pump is not coming on. The other is the unit leaking. Check the door seal for rips or tears on the bottom. Replace as needed. Also check the sump in the bottom of the unit to see if it has a lot of debris in it. This can cause the pump to not start. It could be more complex like the water valve is not shutting down all the way. The control board is bad etc.

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Dishwasher Does Not Cycle


IA, these GE pumps have a habit of sticking if the unit hasn't been run for a while. First you want to verify that the motor is in fact getting power, this will eliminate the timer. You can use a meter on the quik connect from the motor while in the wash cycle. If the motor is getting power, see if the pump is stuck by turning the motor vanes (Do this with the power off). If it's hard to turn and then frees up than this was more than likley your problem. You remove the bottom toe panel and will be able to check this out without removing the dishwasher.
