Ge gld6560 dishwasher overheating blowing smoke

My wife started our dishwasher tonight, it ran for about 45 minutes when I noticed a deep sound/vibration while upstairs in our mst bdrm watching tv. I went downstairs and our kitchen was filled with smoke that smelled like burning plastic. the lights on our dishwasher were flashing and white smoke was coming out. Any ideas what caused this? We've had it for over 6 years. certainly out of warranty.

Maggie, what you are hearing is probably the drain pump solenoid. At start the drain pump will get in to get rid of any water and purge the system. It's hard to tell without being there. I would call for service, it won't cost anything. Have the tech check the wash and drain pump assy. Catriver..post back.

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.

SOURCE: Soap and Foam coming out the front during wash

Also, check the rubber boots in the bottom corner of the door jam....I've replaced them on mine and it still leaked out the front. The too much soap may be the problem but with my experience I'll bet it's the rubber boots. I'm getting a new dishwasher because I'm still having problems with them.

There is a new product out that actually filters the water going into your dishwasher. My dishes came out amazing after the first load. No more cloudy glasses. I was very impressed. Who knows whats in the water cleaning your dishes so i thought this filter was great. It is very affordable and you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. Hope this helps some people.

SOURCE: GE Nautilus Dishwasher Start Problem (no water filling)

Model # should be on inside of tub wall....but any way...

This is a typical GE problem which I have seen many times...When a DW sets for a while not being used...the motor often freezes up....Take the front (lower panel off....find the motor assembly...(with the DW unplugged!!...very important)reach in with you hand or a screw driver...preferably your hand...at the back of the motor...there should be a impeller blade...you should be able to reach in with a finger and pull it down..it may be resistant so find a way to hold it in place as you reach up to the next impller blade and pull down further...finally it will all of a sudden free up....after which you plug it back in and start it up...I am also including a step by step (no drain problem check list as you may run into an issue like this if it has not been operated for a while ....notice article # 5).


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

I hope this helps...it is always useful to include the Model #...more specific instructions can then be provided

Good Luck and good day.....please rate my effort...the Fang

Dead ge microwave


magnetrons work only when the unit is cooking
it smells like an insulation from overheating wire so could be a fuse and failing transformer
take it in for a proper diagnosis and quote but if it is over 2 years old the cost to repair could be more than a replacement unit

Black smoke would indicate it is burning oil, Has the machine been working on an incline.? check valve clearences. My guess is that oil is somehow getting into the cylinder.

1997 Mitsubishi Montero SR. It started overheating and smoking noticeably all of a sudden. My wife drove it to the nearest repairman. The temperature gauge was on normal when it first was cranked again....


Really you should allow them run a diagnostic scan because this will definitely lead you to the cause of the problems.

From your explanation I can perceive that the EGR is blocked (needs servicing) and this has made the Oxygen sensors fail a great deal wherein it is sending wrong signal/ communications to the computer on the car; in this instance/ situation, the car will be on a hard starting module.

I will appeal you let the repairman scan the vehicle.

Good luck and thanks for believing in us at Fixya.

Do remember to rate this solution/ suggestion.

Cheers.

Ran without water will not fill now


Try unplugging the machine for 30 minutes then plugging it back in. I am worried that the pump is bad due to the fact that it needs water to add resistance to work properly and without water the pump spins so free the it burns itself out. But first try unplugging the dishwasher first

Open the dishwaser while still filling now keeps going to error


After reading a few of the other Haier models troubles, I pulled the unit out and tip it at 45 degrees backwards for around minute. Water pored from the back of the unit, once cleaned water up reinstalled unit and all seems to be back in working order.

GE Triton not working


Jitterbugclu-
I may have the solution. Husband just turned off power to dishwasher via circuit breaker. Waited around 30 minutes.
Restored power and Triton came back with normal lights.
I just ran a cycle and all was well. Hope this helps you.
My fingers are crossed because I don't know what happened but did read on another site that this should be the first thing you try before expen$ive repairman.
Reply back if it works!
