Question about GE GLD4460NSS Stainless Steel Dishwasher

1 Answer

9 month old GE GLD4460nss

Water did not drain out when we got up this morning and dishwasher will not come on. Breaker is ok and wall switch ok. Wife emptied washer and after reading up on it I pulled front panel on bottom after offing the breaker.The motor spins free and I had wife put in two pots of hot water in bottom of machine to see if a vapor lock. No drain . I saw the two panel lites come on one time after putting on breaker but that is it.The washer was never attached to the new granite countertop when we bought the older updated house and the washer scoots in and out very easily.It has to be pulled out or pushed in just right for the unit to come on ( this has been from day 1 ( 8 ) months ago. We have an autistic son who is going nuts because he can not unload the washer ( his prized job)-----HELP!!!!!!!!-2 weeks till sears can come out.

    I have the same issue, and the electrical connection is solid. It does not drain, and never did. It is a brand new dishwasher that is never used.

Order a Non-Wood Countertop Kit GPF65Check electrical connection to dishwasher. All that moving around may have contributed to a poor connection. Test wire nut connections where the household wire connects to the dishwasher by holding wire nuts and tugging each wire to make sure they are firmly attached. Inspect incomming wire to make sure it has not been damaged.

GE Profile GSD4010202AA Built in Dishwasher acts as if no power


1. turn breaker off to diswasher. 2. remove bottom access cover. 3. remove cover over electrical connection box on right side. 4. hold each wire nut connector and firmly tug on one wire at at time to make sure none of the wires pull out of the wire connecor nuts. A loose connection here is more common than you might think.
If those are all OK, turn breaker back on and make sure you have power there. (120 volts black to white) If that was OK, then check door latch switch inside door at the top center and wires passing through door at the bottom of the door.

I woke to water draining from the dishwasher this morning. I looked inside and there was water in the bottom? Help?


when you say you woke to water draining i assume the pump was activated if so you water valve is not shutting completely causing your dishwasher to gradually over fill this will cause your water level switch to activate the overfill stage and bring in your water pump have a close look and if this is the case replace water valve hope this helps let me know how you go

No power to dishwasher


Do the following:
  1. Check the power from the wall outlet or the branch circuit itself.
  2. Check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.
  3. Check the wiring connections of the dishwasher from the house wiring.
  4. Check the door switch. Remove the control panel cover or the interior liner of the door whenever it is applicable. Replace if defective.
  5. Check the timer or selector switch. replace if defective.

No power at all


Check The following components below to address this issue.


1. No power to the dishwasher
Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

3. Timer/control
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

No lights displayed at all and the unit does not turn on. Tryed reseting the circuit breaker


It doesn't work at all If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house
Door switch
Wiring
Timer or selector switch
Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

Installation


The incoming hot water can be hooked up independently. The thing you should consider is the drain line. The drain hose and the pump are (obviously) below the tub of the dishwasher (DW). If you route the drain hose through the floor directly, the water in the tub will siphon out. You'll need to route the drain hose to keep this from happening. The way to do that is to route it in such a way that it forms an almost upside down "J", then down through the island. The upper portion of the "J" should be about the same height as the top of the DW.

Also consider the electrical hook up. The proper way to wire it is through a SPST switch (like a light switch) so you can turn power off in an emergency or a servicer can kill power without having to locate the breaker. Some contractors "hard wire" the DW's in (with or without a SPST switch)... others mount a wall outlet so you can plug and unplug the DW if necessary. Either way is OK, only mentioned it so you'll know how your contractor will be doing it.

Just some things to consider. Good luck with the renovation and I hope you enjoy your new Kitchen.
