How do I get my ge dishwasher to run? the lights


Hello there and welcome to fixya
If electrical power is available to the dishwasher but the appliance doesn't run, the problem is likely to be a defective door switch, timer, or selector switch. Make sure to turn off the power to the dishwasher before attempting any repairs
To solve a door switch problem, you may be able to adjust the door latch's strike slightly, using a screwdriver
then make sure the door closes securly, if this doesent work
please check the timer as follows
Dishwasher timer concerns can be classified into two general categories: the timer cannot be advanced manually and appears to be stuck or intermittent automatic timer advancement.

1. The timer dial cannot be advanced manually and appears to be stuck. Stuck timers are generally caused by objects that prevent the detergent cup from opening, or by a sticky substance between the timer dial and the control panel.
  • Objects that prevent the detergent cup from opening: If your timer will not advance, open the dishwasher door and check for items that may be blocking the detergent cup.

    Also, check the detergent cup:

    • It should be fully closed at the start of a cycle.

    • It should be fully open at the end of the cycle.
    • Almost fully open between main wash and final rinse.

    If it is in any other position, try to open or close the cup while at the same time rotating the timer. This should free it up. To prevent a reoccurrence, make sure nothing blocks operation of the detergent cup when the dishwasher door is closed and operating.


  • Sticky substances like orange juice that get between the timer knob and the front of the control panel on some models will bond the timer knob to the control panel. If you have this condition, it will be virtually impossible to rotate the timer knob while gently pressing the knob in toward the dishwasher. It will rotate normally if the knob is gently pulled away from the dishwasher while rotating the knob.

    This problem can be solved by gently pulling the knob away from the control panel and cleaning behind the knob with a damp cloth. Do not use excessive force because the knob is attached to the control panel on models affected by this problem. If this operation cannot be performed, service should be contacted to repair the problem.
2. Intermittent automatic timer advancement. This can be described as the timer can be advanced manually, but it does not advance automatically in spots for up to 30 minutes.
  • This is almost always a normal condition and always occurs on models with a "Delay Start" feature.

    Delay start timers increment or advance a couple of degrees once every minute or so during most of the cycle. However, during certain parts of the cycle they increment once every 30 minutes. This gives the dishwasher time to do the job of cleaning your dishes. The long increment times occur during "Delay Start", "Hot Start", "Normal Wash" and "Dry" cycles.

    The timer will not move at all during these delay periods. This is normal operation and service is not needed. If you notice delay times substantially longer than 30 minutes, replace the timer
  • Also ensue that you are getting adequate water pressure and the unit is getting water inside and that the water is at the right temperature 140 is the min. for most units
  • Please check the above and let me know what you have found so i can continue to help there is a lot of things to check but these that i have provided are the most common thing that need to be checked first ok?
  • Best regards Mike

Hello, I have a problem with our Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher. It starts its cycle OK, draining out any residual water, taking in fresh water and doing the initial rinse. After about 5 minutes it then...


hello andy..... On many dishwashers, a plastic actuator arm mechanically links the timer to the detergent cup. When the timer reaches the proper time in the cycle, the timer activates a lever that opens the detergent cup. If the linkage is broken or defective, the cup stays closed after you've closed it. Check the link and repair or replace it, as necessary.

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Ok there are acouple of things that can be checked on this along with what you have already checked
Drain solenoid Beneath some dishwashers, there's a timer-activated drain solenoid (an electro-magnetic coil) that opens a drain valve, to drain the wash water through a hose and out to the house's plumbing waste system. If this is failing it will not allow the water to drain from the machine fully
Timer Dishwashers have a timer behind the main control panel at the front top of the dishwasher, or behind the lower access panel. It is either a mechanical device like a simple clock, or it's completely electronic with just a digital readout. The timer runs the dishwasher in a pre-determined pattern. It provides the electricity to all of the dishwasher components at the correct time, for the correct length of time.

Water pumps into the bottom of the dw but the spray arm doesn't rotate and spray. It also empties, so the problem seems to be with the spray arm. Any solutions?

Dishwasher Spray Arms not Spinning

Reset delay program


Hi there,

Well first of all you can check that the stopcock is opened fully or whether the water inlet hose is kinked. Check that the water inlet filter is not clogged and clean it, if necessary, as described in the operating instructions. Check that the drain pump is not clogged.

Reset the error message as follows: To cancel the error message, turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Then switch the appliance off and then back on again. Post comments if you need furtehr help or information........

Good Luck!!

Sprayer arms not spinning


I know this sounds too simple, but on My dishwasher which is an SHX46b model, the plastic supply arm that comes out of the pump and supplies the upper arm popped out of it's correct position at the base. It is held in place by two dinky nibs. I just popped it back in and voila, pressure was back and arms were spinning.

WASHING ARMS NOT ROTATING, ITEMS NOT BEING CLEANED. IS THE PUMP WORN OUT?


Please post the model number of your dishwasher here.

I am not familiar with the HorPoint Aquarius dishwasher, but if it is a newer, water conserving, energy saving model, it ~might~ have a check valve that switches/alternates the water from the lower to the upper rack (Other manufactures do this, including LG.)

I know you think I am nuts, but your problem ~may~ not be the wash arm. It really sounds like your heating element is not working, which then does not get the detergent powder up to the high temp it needs to activate the cleaning ability.

Also, buy a box of name brand detergent powder and use it rather that an ultra-cheap box. It really does make a difference with dishwasher detergent.

Good Luck!

Please post back here with what you find, OK?

The dishwasher isnt doing the full cycle


A few things here one with no water coming in the water solonoid could be blocked or is fualty,check to ensure the filter in the soloniod is clean do this by removeing the inlet pipe from the conection at the back of the machine and in the solonoid is a small filter remove it and clean ,reconnect the water and try again,if no water is taken the chances are that the solonoid is gone replace it after you have checked the following ,second if water is taken then see if the timer moves if it does not then look at replaceing the timer again after going through all the possibilities,the motor running is part of the process the motor is meant to run to drain exsess water before takeing new water .the only other thing is that the pressure switch has not released normally from an obstuction in the pressure pipe worst case the switch itself has packed up to test is easy locate the pressure switch and blow into it and if you hear a click and another click when you stop blowing it should be ok if not replace it.

Not cleaning properly


It sounds like the dishwasher is not completely draining... this leaves particulates floating in the water and is redispersed during the next cycle.

If it were me, I'd consider taking apart the bottom rotating sprayer and the plastics that cover the draining impeller (or pump). My guess is that contains a large amount of debris which should be cleaned out. If that isn't the case, check the pump itself. Something might be in there preventing it from working, or may have damaged it in a previous cycle (ie: chicken bone). Any screens or traps should be completely clean. If you use powdered detergent, there might be a buildup of solidified detergent preventing things from working properly and will need to be cleaned. If you use powdered detergent, consider switching to liquid as it tends not to solidify.

Let me know how it goes. Please rate accordingly.

Dishwasher Does Not Cycle


IA, these GE pumps have a habit of sticking if the unit hasn't been run for a while. First you want to verify that the motor is in fact getting power, this will eliminate the timer. You can use a meter on the quik connect from the motor while in the wash cycle. If the motor is getting power, see if the pump is stuck by turning the motor vanes (Do this with the power off). If it's hard to turn and then frees up than this was more than likley your problem. You remove the bottom toe panel and will be able to check this out without removing the dishwasher.
