Hello -

I suspect the anti-flood protection system on your dishwasher has been activated and the motor you can hear is the drain-pump motor. It's unlikely you would be able to hear the motor (solenoid) for the water inlet valve. Please can you answer the following quick questions to assist me in solving your problem.

1. Does the motor continue to run even with the washer door open?
2. Brand and model number of the dishwasher.

Thanks,
BElectric

Whirlpool dishwasher model number GU3600XTSY2 is flashing: The clean light is flashing! It's not the heater circuit either. It says the dishwasher is malfunctioned. Call for service to check heater...


The clean light sometimes flashes and just needs to be reset. To do so hit the keys in the following order. <Heated Dry> <Normal Wash> <Heated Dry> <Normal Wash> <Cancel>.
The dishwasher will go through a cancel cycle (drain the tub) and will then let you start it up again

Dishwasher fills but no pressure during wash, middle and upper sprayer are not moving. I cleaned trap and lines in tub - no improvement. Is pump bad, how to test? Is this worth fixing?


What I would Do :
1st I would start your dishwasher and let it fill with water and when it stoped filling, I would open the door to see how much water it filled in the tub. ((( if you don't have enough water you will not get the correct pressure )))

If We have enough water we then close the dishwasher door and resume.

you have 2 motors in the bottom of your dishwasher, The drain pump motor and the Wash motor. They should be differen sounds.

We want to know if your wash motor is coming on.

If your wash motor is coming on then I will listen to see if I here water coming out of the spray arm. (( somtimes you can here the swish of the water hiting the door ))

If you do not here the water then I would open the door and position all spray arms the same way and close the door for a min and reopen to see if i have any movment.

If you do not have any movement and did here the motor run then your impellor might be broken or cloged or bound. you will only really find out by taking it apart. you could buy the hole pump & motor Kit. but you can save money by finding out what is the cause.

You can see a breakdown of a similar model here
I was unable to get your model to come up and you should check the machine model number so you have it to get the correct parts. Look at the pump & motor section and you will see how this pump is broken down.

If you don't think your getting the proper water amount, just open the dishwasher door and pour 5 or 6 glasses in and close the door for the wash cycle and listen for a differance.

My dishwasher has water going in to it and it drains but it's not making it to the arms, my dishes are still bone dry after all cycles even pre rinse.


it appears ur wash motor is not running.try this-start the unit and let it run for 2 min( this is the water fill period) and after 2 mins u should hear motor running and water splashing sound.u can even open the door and look for water falling from the spray arms.but after 2 mins if u hear only a humming sound and no water splash sound then motor is bad and needs to be chgd.drain motor is seperate for draining the water.

Water remains at the bottom of the dishwasher


some dishwashers have water left after the final rinse. it is important to keep the motor seals wet between loads. My filter is always immersed. If we go away for two weeks, I put 2 litres of water into the tub and let it soak 24 hr so that I never start it with dry seals.

Water does not drain


Hi

You can :

Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit

Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.

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.

Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause. ( not all dishwashers )

Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise

Check pump impeller for damage.

Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.
Please contact for further clarifications.

Thanks

Dishwasher keeps stoping


Favorite for bosch is the water inlet modual which monitors the water flow in could be faulty, If incorrect pulses take place the motor wont proceed. Otherwise listen for a hum after water stops filling. If there is a hum, the main wash pump is jambed and has to be sorted out.

Fills with water but won't wash.


It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Check if motor spins. In case it spins, the problem is with the pump ,in case it doesn't spin it could be a motor problem or a motor and pump problem. Good luck
