Question about GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher with stuck fan motor

My GE Nautilus dishwasher has the common "stuck" fan motor. It does come unstuck when I move it with a screwdriver, but I have to get down and do that EVERY time I run the machine (every other day). I've sprayed it with WD-40 on numerous occasions, but this problem isn't going away. How difficult and costly is it to replace this part? Neither my husband nor I have any electrical knowledge, but I'm willing to give it a try.

Sorry about the delay, I have been gone this week. Yes, it sounds like it will need to be replaced. I will need the model and serial numbers for your appliance to tell you how much the part would cost. Let me know and I'll try and get back to you as soon as possible.

GE Dishwasher motor hums but doesn't engage.


These motors will stick sometimes during periods of not being used. With the power turned off to the the dishwasher, remove the front lower grille. There are usuallly 2 screws on each side of the panel. Looking under the D/W your will see the motor and pump assembly. If you feel around you should be able to feel the motor's cooling fan. Simply rock the fan back and forth and the motor/pump should become unstuck.

The pump motor may be stuck. If this is the case, as it often is with a GE dishwasher, you can break it loose (e.g. spin the impeller until it doesn't spring back any more). If it's not stuck, it may have something inside of the pump motor and it may need to be replaced.

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.

if the dishwasher has not been used for a few weeks, the water in the sump that goes into the pump will evaporate causing the pump to freeze up. usually you can turn the fins inside the motor to free it up. make sure the dishwasher is not on when you do this.

GE nautilus wont run


These motors were famous for the seal sticking to shaft. If this is an older unit turn the fan on motor by hand until it breaks free. Do this with power off.
