Question about GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher
I have a GE nautilus that was working fine then not used for several months- when I tried to use it again for the first time it filled up with water but then just made a humming noise and then there was no movement. Now the water won't drain and it only makes the humming noise when I turn it on. Is there anything I can do to fix it? Or is it broken beyond repair?
If you remove the front panel at the bottom and look underneath, there is a motor staring at you. The motor has blades that look like wings of a fan. If you take a screw driver and try to rotate the blades, you will feel that they dont move freely. This is what someone said, the impeller (blades) are stuck. You need to keep rotating the blades until they get free rotational motion. I had the exact same problem and I was able to fix it this way. Hope it helps.

There is a pump motor underneath with an impeller that is most likely stuck. You will need to turn the impeller until it breaks loose if it is stuck. This is a common problem with GE dishwashers and I recommend that you run it at least once or twice a week to avoid this problem in the future, even if you have to run it empty.
