Question about GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Nautilius not running

I also have a GE nautilus. The water won't drain and it only makes the humming noise when I turn it on. I checked the impeller, but it's not stuck. Is there anything else I can do to fix it?

My GE Triton dishwasher won't drain. How do I de-clog it?


Remove the dishwasher drain line from the under sink connection. Direct that end to a bucket and run the drain option on the dishwasher.

1. Does water drains to the bucket. Then your under sink hook up to the dishwasher is clogged. Clean it with a screw driver.

2. No drain water comes to the bucket then

2.1 When on drain do you hear a humming noise. If yes then your drain motor working. That means mostly your dishwasher drain line clogged.

2.2 If humming noise is like a fan (impeller) running then drain line clogged.

2.3 If humming noise is like a small struggling to run. Then something stuck in the drain motor impeller.

GE Nautilius 24" built in about 6 yrs old won't start - it hums and goes through the cycles but doesn't run. Water came in and now won't drain either


Sounds like one of two things 1. The timer unit is gone, that would need replacing. 2. the syphin relay is stuck, this is located below the syphin on the underside of the dishwisher. BE CAREFUL! You will be dealing with electrics.

GE Nautilius Dishwasher - Water will not drain out after washing


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
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

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).

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

My dishwasher does not completely drain after a wash. what do i do?


  1. Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit
  2. Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
  3. Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
  4. Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause. ( not all dishwashers )
  5. Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise
  6. If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock out plug at connection.
  7. Check pump impeller for damage.
  8. Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off

GE NAUTILUS DISHWASHER


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.

Humming noise


I have seen this SOOOOO many times in my 35+ years in the appliance repair industry.......it is very typical....here you are this is an answer I provided someone with the exact problem not to long ago..............

This is an add on I thought about later...if you know someone who has or if you have or can get and electrical spray (cleaner/lubricant) it has to be nonconducting......spray for electric motors or coils...it will help prevent this to a degree and the motor will run better.

I hope this helps...Good Luck and good day.....please rate my effort...the Fang
