Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Just os you know there are 12 models of this dishwasher and you only gave a partial model number. It is missing several digits after the last G. The symptom you describe would be applicable to all 12 models.

There are a few things that can cause this symptom.
1. Debris in the motor pump impeller (Things like toothpicks or small bones / bone fragments)
2. The motor pump seal has failed letting water into the motor bearings.

^--- These are the 2 most common reasons.

Take a look under the motor pump assembly for the tell tale signs of water dripping onto the floor under the dishwasher. (stains or a circular soap pattern) If you see a water or a soap stain on the floor the motor pump seal has failed and the only remedy is replacement of the motor pump assembly.

There is a possibility that the impeller is jammed with something but if the unit is 4 or more years old, most likely is the motor pump seal has failed causing subsequent motor bearing failure. It is best to remove the motor pump assembly for any attempt at clearing foreign debris from the pump impeller. Also look for a broken impeller blade during the clearing / cleaning process. If you thnk the motor can be salavaged make sure to lunricate the bearings with a paraffin based oil. We use the "Zoom Spout" Olier

I noticed just as going to bed last night that our dishwasher appeared to be making a strange noise (dull buzzing sound), opened door to check and the display has the number 3 flashing, several fault codes...


check the very bottom of washer; look for something jamming the garbage cutting blades. it can be something very small stock half way in the drain causing the blades to stop turning and therefore keeps it from draining water. just an idea

GE Dishwasher - loud rumbling/growling noice!


If I am not mistaken this dishwasher has a Clean out at the bottom of the machine that can open .This is here to catch stuff like broken glass and things like that. It has a little fan like blades that act to chop up food that is to big to go down the outlet hose. also look under the machine if you can ,but in most cases you must remove 4 screws to get the bottom kick plate off, Also check all the spinning arms to make sure they are turning correctly. hope this helps

Water wont stop going in


You stated that your house is new. I see this frequently and what has likely happened is the installer used pipe dope to seal the elbow that screws into the bottom of the dishwasher water valve. They should have used Teflon thread tape instead as the pipe dope will get into the diaphram in the water valve, clog the tiny holes in it and ruin the water valve. The valve on the dishwasher will need to replaced. Hopefully the company that takes care of the warranty doesn't charge you for it. They should back-charge the installer.
