Question about GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

GE Nautilus wont start

The dishwasher can be closed, and the dial can be turned, but when i turn the dial nothing happens, the motor doesnt even attempt to turn. The soap tray opens up when the dial is turned past that point in the cycle, but nothing else. I checked, and it is wired directly to electricity; so its not unplugged. Any thoughts for what i can do to fix it? I have the exact same problem.used a meter to make sure power was actually getting to the dishwasher. power was getting to it but unit still would not start. no matter what setting I set the dial to no power got to the motor and unit did not try to fill with water.

I am thinking it may have some type of built in fuse/circuit breaker somehere that is just not allowing this thing to turn on.

Looks like you need to replace the timer/cycle panel on your appliance.
Try first unplugging machine for 20 minutes, to see if this reset can fix the problem.

    when is a faulty pump you should get an error code, when machine lights on but do not start, you mainly check door latch sensor and control/timer panel.
    Check if the door is closing properly and if the latch is engaging, check that the gasket is ok and that there is no dirt in the door latch.
    If door latch is OK, then it is usually the cycle control.

    Here you find more hints from Repairclinic:






    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.
    You can buy parts here by typing your model number

    If you cannot fix it and you need to call a technician, you can use the number listed on your user manual.

No water goes into dishwasher. Dishwasher has only been used 2times. Came new with house 3.6 years ago. Pulled front panel off...everything appears to be connected motor fan runs.


I've experienced the same thing. Try very slowly rotating timer dial, click by click, until the water starts. Sometimes 3 or 4 clicks will start water. (You're advancing the clock.) Usually water starts in before the dial points to, "Short Wash." If this doesn't work, advance the dial to, "Off," unlock and open the door, reset, close, the soap dispenser, close and lock the door, and slowly advance the dial until the unit starts. I think this problem is a clock to pump issue and what I've described does a reset of the system. This happens to me once or twice per month. Poor engineering but still better than buying a new machine...at least 'till now.

Sounds like you need a new timer. Costs about $50 - $60. I had the same problem. The knob now turns. Hope this helps.

Our Nautilus dishwasher won't turn on. I can hear a buzzing noise, but nothing is happening. Does anyone now what I should do?


The same thing happens with my dishwasher. I have made it work by doing the following. When you start up the cycle, turn the dial to just a tick before "start." If you hear the buzzing, but no water is running, unlock and then lock the dishwasher door again. This usually gets it running. If it's still not running water, unlock, advance the dial a little bit, and lock again. This should work. You need to be around for the early parts of the dishwashing cycle because this machine tends to stop up and buzz without running water until it gets past "short wash." Every time this happens, do the same thing, unlock and lock, and advance the dial a little when necessary. Once you get past "short wash," it should complete the wash without intervention.

GE Nautilus wont start


check the two switches under the inside cover of the door. there are two switches under the flimsy metal switch actuator, one switch has a black wire in both ends the other switch should have two white or white/red strip wires on one end and one white or white/red wire on the other end. the black wire is power the white wire is your neutral. both switches should have a button in the middle that is pushed in by the flimsy metal switch actuator when you lock the door shut. i had to replace the switch for my neutral when mine quit working. you can remove this switch and get the part number off of it. you can look it up on line or call a small appliance repair store to see if they have the part or can order it for you. remember to unplug the dishwasher before you remove the the inside cover of the door. hope this helps.

These motors were famous for the seal sticking to shaft. If this is an older unit turn the fan on motor by hand until it breaks free. Do this with power off.

Soap door latch won't latch close


Make sure the dial that you turn to start the dishwasher is all the way to the beginning. Sometimes my little grandson comes by and plays with it, turning it. I load, add soap and the dispenser won't close. I check the outside dial, and sure enough, set it to the very beginning and the dispenser locks in place!
