GE Cafe Dishwasher 2014 Making a continuous thumping noise even when running empty and leaves dish soap traces in the holder.

The noise can only be heard when the washing cycle is on. It's quite when draining or taking in water.

SOURCE: Diswasher motor making noise during wash cycle

It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.

First clean the sprayer arm of all debris. In the back of most dishwashers there is a screen on the bottom that is often full of junk, debris and other stuff from dishes not being scraped off.

Clean that screeen off.

Run vinegar (1 cup) for a full cycle to help break down the lime and other build ups.

Check sprayer arm for debris and other objects. carefully pick it out with a small needle or sometimes even a nail works.

Try running dishes again to see if this helps.

SOURCE: Not starting wash cycle

Typically this means that there has been a water leak of some sort and there is water in the lower base pan. This is the large white plastic base that the dishwasher sits on.

If you remove the toe kick and look back past the fill valve on the extreme left side of the dishwasher about 6 to 8 inches from the front you will see a red stick that goes straight up and down. This is a mechanical linkage that activates the drain feature. Be careful as there are live connections here.

This stick rests on a round piece of Styrofoam that acts as a float. If there is water present it will cause the stick to lift and the dishwasher will go into drain. The source of the leak will have to be isolated and corrected. Most likely it is the fill float assembly as referenced at the end of this post.

If the stick is not in the upright position then there is possibly an issue with the switch mechanism itself.

You will have to pull the dishwasher out from beneath the cabinet and remove the panel covering the left hand side. If it is a full panel then there are a couple of screws holding it on from the front through side trim as viewed when the door is open if it is a half panel then it can be removed by removing the large torx screw on the lower right as seen when facing the panel.

If there is a problem with the switch then the entire mechanism should be replaced.

Try the following link to a picture for reference. It is upside down as compared to the installed one:

Hi you probably have something in the sump drain assembly (this is a common problem with Nautilus DW's) there's a screen on the right side of the spray arm with 2 screws remove them and take screen off use your fingers to probe the cavity be careful it could be glass.

If it does not correct the problem

!.You may have an electric pump . and it could be pump without water . so i would say a bad pump....but since you say everything is draining well...then I doubt the later...HOWEVER...you did say it ran forever...which is absolutely typical of something in the sump...drain area...which will make the drain cycle run because it believes something to be in the drain.....there is also a check valve...that the drain hose attaches to...(it comes right off of the motor assembly) when you take the hose off there is a check valve that screws into the hose or the motor assembly...(it could have debris in the hose that is not being drained all the way out and it is finding it's way back to the check valve) ...shop-vac the drain line...or the valve is screwed into the motor assembly where the hose disconnects...and there may be something stuck in the valve...unscrew it and check that the valve is in good shape...and free of debris......reassemble...and run through cycle....if you need any of these parts...or any specific instructions on replacement of these parts...here is a great site...Quality for less and quick delivery.

I hope this helps...I believe it will....Good luck and good day....thank you for your rating my effort....The Fang.

Recent changes in the law prevent soap makers from putting phosphates in dishwasher soap so they're not as effective as the were even a few months ago.  Unfortunately,  the solution is more thorough rinsing before loading.

After 6 years, started leaving white film on dishes and silverware


Run a cycle with some CLR instead of soap, empty no dishes, run two more cycles with just water to rinse out the CLR and then see if the residue is gone, that's the cheapest, the other is some of the jet cleaners out there that clear out the jets that spray the water but I have no clue on the cost of those

Dishwasher leaves food particles on dishes


You are not getting enough water in the machine. The inlet valve is probably plugged with sand or something of the sort. You will need to replace the inlet valve.

Dishwasher runs but does not get dishes clean


1.) Confirm that the holes of the spray arms are not blocked with debris.
2.) Run a short cycle with an empty dishwasher and no dishwasher soap. Run the dishwasher until you hear it finish filling with water and begins the wash cycle. Add up to two cups of white vinegar to the water and allow to wash and drain. Feel free to do the same when the dishwasher fills again.
3.) Only use a brand name powder detergent (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) in any dishwasher. Do not use a gel or tablet in any dishwasher. Do not fill the dispenser fully.
Test your dishwasher with a standard load of dirty dishes.
If problems continue, confirm that the heating element is working properly. The heating element is vital to getting clean dishes with modern dishwashers and DW detergent.
Please report back what you find.
