Look at the base of the motor or top. You will find some hexagonal
bolts or star screws. Remove them in sequence and note down the
places. Some times screws will be of different lengths.

Remove the water hose connections also.

Switch OFF power before attempting.

Dishwasher makes grinding sound during wash cycle.I cancelled and drained due to the sound.


Hello,
This means that some debris is trapped inside the motor. You can complete this repair yourself, it's simple. Remove the lower spray arm followed by the screws on the top of the motor housing.
The impeller will be below the part that lifts off with the screws removed.

The water doesn't completely drain out. The dishwasher completes the cycle but there's an inch of water at the bottom.


The drain pump motor is in line with the outlet pipe. First check if the outlet pipe is not blocked or obstructed. The motor can be tested by removing the 2 electrical push on connectors and connecting mains supply to the 2 terminals. If the motor spinns it indicates that the motor is OK and that the fault is then with the electronic switching circuit (not normaly a home repair). If the motor does not spin it indicates that the motor is open circuit and needs replacing. (easy job). You can also spin the motor small cooling fan by hand just to determine if it runs freely like it should and is not obstructed by dirt inside the water channel of the pump.

Residue is left behind after cycle is complete. Dishes looks dirt


if dirt is not being washed away it is most likely you have a clogged screen before the waste tube. Depending on the model. Dismantling the dishwasher takes place inside it and under it where the motor is located.

Won't drain completely after a cycle is completed


HI. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer/control
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Water will not drain after cycles are complete


Start with removing the screws in the bottom of the dishwasher and pull out the filter, etc. Clean everything you remove in a sink and soak in white vinegar anything is coated with minerals.
Inspect closely everything you can now see with a flashlight (watch out for broken glass!) Remove any debris found. Reassemble and test if removing any obstructions found.
If problems continue, run a short cycle and listen closely. When the pump should be running, do you hear the sound/hum of the motor turning (but water is not draining?) If yes, replace the pump motor.
If you hear nothing during the cycle when the dishwasher should be draining, the problem is almost certainly a failure of the timer/controller that controls the pump motor.
Good Luck!

Leaking around seal in the center of dishwasher


the white hook peice is just that, a clip to hld down the motor. as you reinstalled you must have twisted or shifted housing to "pop" that clip. no worries easy fix. remove the lower rack and give alook at the motor assy from within ther tub make sure the black gasket is pushed completely down flush with the bottom of the d/w. applying pressure to top of motor assy will push it flush. the motor simply rests in the opening . the clip holds it in place from underneath, unable to find a pic but there a 3 in total under unit.

GE DISHWASHER


On most older Ge dishwashers this usually means a locked up motor. You should be able to hear it hum when it tries to start. The shaft between the pump and motor gets rusty, swells and locks up the motor. You can sometimes coax it to life for a little while by removing the front panel and spinning the fan in the motor by hand. Sometimes this lasts a couple of months. This problem usually shows up when it has not been used for a while. A new motor costs around $100 and is usually not worth fixing. It is very easy to install though. But you do have to completely remove the dishwasher to do so.

Whirlpool dishwasher model gu1200 not working


I checked. There is no sheet of any kind inside or below the door of my Whirlpool dishwasher.

In any case, opening up the non-washing washer revealed that the filter behind the chopper assembly was clogged with food. I cleaned it off, put the thing back together again, and it was washing dishes again, until about three days later. I took it apart again and found food clogging the filter behind the chopper. I thought the chopper wasn't chopping, so I replaced it. It was around $16. About three days later it wasn't washing dishes again.

Further examination (dis-assembly of the sump motor and impeller) revealed that the end of the impeller (which is designed to engage the chopper) had broken off, thus the chopper no longer spins with the sump motor. The impeller costs about $20 and isn't too hard to replace, as long and you keep track of what you've dis-assembled and put it back together in reverse order.

On whirlpool dishwashers, the sump motor drives the impeller (it's connected via the threaded end of the motor shaft) and the impeller, in turn, drives the chopper. The chopper you can replace from inside the tub, without removing the dishwasher from its home or taking apart the sump assembly. But save your $16, as that probably isn't what is wrong... The impeller, being screwed onto the motor shaft, requires complete removal of the dishwasher so that you can completely remove the base assembly that holds the motor assembly.

If you have a GU-series whirlpool washer, the tech manual can be found here:

It has complete instructions for the replacement of every part.
