Question about GE Dishwashers

1 Answer

I've got a GE model GLD4408R00WW front load dishwasher, which was not filling, even though you could hear the motor running. Tried resetting it by turning off the power at the wall switch, and then from the breaker itself, but now, see the "Normal" wash cycle and Heated dry lights blinking when power is returned...

Completely disassembled + tested GE dishwasher, but still won't drain


Air Gap on the sink could be clogged.
Solenoid on the motor could be melted or overheated and it is not letting the check valve open.
Also the motor should make noise. It could be stuck so that it gets voltage but is not turning. You can hear it humming. Unplug the dishwasher and from the front underneath, you can see the fins of the motor. It should spin freely. If it is stuck, the you can force it free by turning the fins with a couple of screwdrivers.Sometime if you don't use the dishwasher weekly, the motor seals dry and gets stuck.

Bosch SHE44C06UC/22 won't fill with water even though you hear water running somewhere.


Check to make sure there is no residual water underneath the unit, they have a flood sensor and if it is picking up water in the motor area it won;t run.

Dishwasher has no water


Find out where your water supply is turned on to your dishwasher. Usually it is under the sink and make sure the valve is turned counter clockwise to supply water to the dishwasher. If this is on, on some models there is a float switch that will sometimes get stuck in the overflow position. Look in the bottom of the dishwasher tub and you will see a round float. Usually it is in the front left of the dishwasher. Move the float up and down and you should hear a clicking noise. Make sure float stays in the lowered position, closest to the dishwasher floor. Check those two and let me know what you find. And we can go from there.

GE Nautilus dishwasher wont run


This is a typical GE problem which I have seen many times...When a DW sets for a while not being used...the motor often freezes up....Take the front (lower panel off....find the motor assembly...(with the DW unplugged!!...very important)reach in with you hand or a screw driver...preferably your hand...at the back of the motor...there should be a impeller blade...you should be able to reach in with a finger and pull it down..it may be resistant so find a way to hold it in place as you reach up to the next impller blade and pull down further...finally it will all of a sudden free up....after which you plug it back in and start it up...I am also including a step by step (no drain problem check list as you may run into an issue like this if it has not been operated for a while ....notice article # 5).


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
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

I hope this helps...it is always useful to include the Model #...more specific instructions can then be provided

Good Luck and good day.....please rate my effort...the Fang

Washer not cycling


I manually turned the impeller on the motor and "broke it loose". I found out if you don't use the washer for even a small period of time the motor may do this.

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.
