Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the cycle doesn't complete, then the first thing that should be checked is the Timer and then the heating element. Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it. Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next depends, as follows: On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time. On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Most likely the problem is with the water heater.

Please provide a detailed model no. of your dishwasher and also clarify if you are connected to hot water connection or cold water.

Are the dishes hot/ warm at the end of the short cycle and more importantly are they cleaned.

Now this below, Fix, may or may not apply to you, but, it is simply amazing just how many times regardless of why, this procedure works.. may well be worth a try. have a look at the other site too....
Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You shouldNEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

Above is a DIY link. http://appliancejunk.com/ge/dishwasher/31-9137.pdf http://appliancejunk.com/ge/dishwasher/31-3280.pdfAbove are two links for service manuals, asmost dishwashers are all very similar, the troubleshooting and repair info, can be used, please have a look at all websites, and i am sure you will be able to sort it out.

If the cycles are off and the timing doesn't seem correct, then the timer is likely bad and will need to be replaced. You can get the parts, diagrams, and more at partselect website

    Either your problem is a bad timer, low water pressure, or dirty water sensors. You can test the water inlet valves with a voltmeter to make sure they are opening to allow full water flow. The timer can also be tested for power/current to see if it is shutting off early or if it's one of the other problems.

    First check/test the timer, then check door switch to make sure it is not loose or faulty, it can be tested with an ohmmeter. Next, check all your sensor and switches for water level to make sure they are not corroded. If so, they should be cleaned or replaced. You can also check the water inlet valve to make sure it is opening fully to allow full water pressure. Low water pressure can cause problems.

Dishwasher does not complete cycle


Does it have standing water after cycle? If so you can turn the knob until you hear the water kick into the sink. let it drain this way completely and stop the dishwasher before it starts to add more water. turn the dial or switch to its off location and the let the dishwasher cycle completely to ensure issue is solved. Your dish washer is "short cycling". This usually works 9 of 10 times

This is probably okay, you have clock like motions running the motor electric contacts. There needs to be a delay between some cycles or shorting will occur. The motor on some designs, for example. is reversed to pump out water. to have this work long term, a delay is inherent and not a concern.

Dirty racks


What is the manufacturer and model number of the dishwasher?
Here is the process I would follow to remove the gunk.
Start a short cycle in the dishwasher, without adding detergent powder and after the (hot) water has filled the DW and the wash cycle has begun, open the DW door and add 1/4 cup of household bleach. When the water drains and begins to refill for the 2nd wash cycle, check the dishwasher to see if anything has gotten better and if not, add another 1/4 cup of bleach as soon as the hot water has refilled. Allow the DW to finish the full cycle.
Begin another short wash and as soon as the initial hot water fills and the wash cycle begins, open and add 2 cups (approximatly) of white vinegar. Allow the whole set of cycles to finish and check the insides.
If grease remains, I would use a de-greasing spray (avilable at all hardware stores and most food stores.) Spray on and use paper towels on all surfaces.
Because I do not know the make and model # for your dishwasher, I can not give you a part number for replacement racks.
Good Luck!

Cycles won't run


dc, sounds more like a shorted interface, a shorted keypad will act like this. There should be a tech sheet behind the toe panel on the bottom. It should have instructions on how to test the keypad and put the unit into the test cycle. Catriver..post back.
