You can take the bottom panel off and see the motor. with the door latch in the open position and or the power off, turn the fan blade on the motor until it frees up, then you should be able to start the machine. if you don't use the dishwasher very much the water will evaporate out of the pump causing this problem.

Whirlpool dishwasher wont wash


if the bottom tub is filling with water but not washing the issues is with the wash motor, some of this model use a start capacitor that can fail, if it has a capacitor on the side of the motor it may have failed but are difficult to diagnose but are cheap to replace so worth trying, if this doesn't help or if it doesn't have a capacitor then the fault is with the wash motor.

Check your fill tubes remove the hoses and see if the filters are plugged, you are not hearing the motor humming. You are hearing the watervalve humming, the motor will not start until the tube is full of water.

Dishwasher fills and heats water, but doesn't wash.


To tell you the truth, I don't even know what model my Whirlpool is. However, I had this same issue. My dishwasher would fill, but it wouldn't spray the water. I could hear it hum, but the motor wasn't going.

After no success finding any ideas online, I had to call out the repairman. Well, 5 minutes and $109 later it was just a simple matter of the motor being stuck. Apparently this is a common issue with GE, but not as common with Whirlpool. Just a seal that gets stuck if you don't use it for awhile (even though there hadn't been any long stretch for me). He reached in/under and turned the motor a bit over a half rotation before it broke loose. It fired up... I wrote the check ... and he left.

He advised me to run the washer on the rinse cycle at least once a week.

Hope that helps someone.

I have a GE Potscrubber dishwasher that only hums, won't run


I have a portable that had the same problem. I called a repairman and he turned a fan blade on the motor. Mine is located on the right side about 12" in. It gets hung up when it is run often enough. If your problem is the same is mine all you have to do is turn the blade and it works like a charm. Hope this helps.

Ge dishwasher hums but will not work. is a 1999 model,,seldom use


When you use your dishwasher so infrequently the water inside evaporates and allows the pump seal to dry out, so there is no longer the lubricating water there. You may be able to solve this by pouring a couple cups of hot (not bioling) water directly into the center of the lower wash arm (center spray tower) and letting it sit for several minutes.
If that does not work, you can take the bottom panel off and turn the fan blade on the motor by hand until if turns freely. (don't do this with power to the motor or you may have some nasty banged up fingers !)

To prevent this from happening in the future, keep some water in the dishwasher by poring a bit in every now and then, or by running a fill and pump cycle at least once a week or so. If you are away for extended periods, you can try adding RV antifreeze to the dishwasher while away.

Motor not running?


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.

Help the water on my dishwasher is screwy.


The problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side on most models), in which case replace the water valve.
