Mine is doing the same thing. I just removed the motor & it is definitely where the smell is coming from. Mine is about 3 years old.

Our 3 month old ge adora dishwasher stopped working properly yesterday. Made funny noise and later I started smelling something burning. Opened it and noticed no water was in it. Restarted and still n


Sounds like the water inlet valve isn't working. Check your house water pressure and make sure it's not above 80 psi. If it isn't, then call a repair company that handles GE warranty work.

Dishwasher ran for an hour and was still on Start. I moved it ahead and it began to smell like something was burning. I turned it off. Should I call a repairman or just get a new one?


You can also try unplugging the unit. Then press the power button after unplugged for an hour. Then plug back in and see if machine resets itself.

Occasionally, dishwashers can run for hours, not finish washing

Won't work...smells like somethings burning....6 yrs old


Unplug unit or turn breaker off. Under unit is a silver box, remove screws to check that all wires are attached securely to unit from plug, and confirm belt is intact.

Motor does turn and smells like something burning


there is nothing that can smell like burning such as a slipping belt in dishwashers, but there is a heating element (the metal element loop at the bottom of the machine (inside where the dishes go). Check to see if a plastic item got stuck to this element. If not, then you need a professional to check the underside of machine for bad connections. Good luck, Macgivor.

first check to make sure door gasket is ok, if bad, replace and test. Make sure to remove bottom front panel during a test and inspect the motor and motor gaskets. It may be leaking here, replace leaking components as needed.

Garbage disposal (water won't drain out of sink standing water)


There should be an overload button somewhere on the bottom of the disposal motor. This is to prevent the motor from trying to run if the chopping blades are jammed, otherwise the motor would burn up.

First, try to move the blades with something like a broom handle. Using a flashlight you should be able to see the blades. there's probably three of them. try to make sure each one can move even a little bit.

Next, with the disposal switch in the off position, find the overload button and push it in, Then turn on the disposal switch and see if it runs. If the overload button trips off again, repeat the above steps until the blades can turn.

Let me know how this goes. Loringh

GE Potscrubber Disshwasher GSD700G, wont cycle


Most washers do not fill they spray the dishes. When enough water has accumulated in the bottom a float switch shuts off the water and turns on the pump to remove the water. If the pump motor does not remove the water the cycle will not continue but the timer will. There may be something clogging the pump and resulting in an overload condition for the motor. This would account for the smell. A pump may turn freely when you spin it by hand because you cannot spin it fast enough by hand to determine if the pump is obstructed. Does the cycle drain the water? If the cycle stops and there is water in the bottom not being pumped out then you should look at the pump and the motor to determine problem.

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.
