GE Potscrubber Disshwasher GSD700G, wont cycle

Water fills in but doesn't cycle. Also, after a couple minutes, I smell a mild burning. I didn't use it for sometime. Had been working great before I let it sit unused.

Checked the motor vin, it moves freely. So, what could be wrong? The knob rotated slowly, so it cant be the knob. Isn't the washer supposed to start washing immediately after the initial water fills in?

    Sorry, if I could not explain whats going on here.When I turn the washer knob to ON position, I hear a bit of water spraying in the washer.After that stops, nothing happens. Isn't the wash cycle supposed to start immediately after the water has been sprayed when turned ON? After a minute or so, I manually rotated the knob and then I heard a Click at some point in time. Nothing happens. Except that more water filled in. After that nothing happens. So, I manually moved the knob back to OFF positon,,because I did smell a little burning. Water is now sitting at the bottom of the washer.. I am going to romve that water now manually by sponge.

    Now pls tell me what could be wrong. If I recall correctly when I was using the washer, the wash cycle used to start immediately or a few seconds after the water sprayed when I turned it on ON position.

Most washers do not fill they spray the dishes. When enough water has accumulated in the bottom a float switch shuts off the water and turns on the pump to remove the water. If the pump motor does not remove the water the cycle will not continue but the timer will. There may be something clogging the pump and resulting in an overload condition for the motor. This would account for the smell. A pump may turn freely when you spin it by hand because you cannot spin it fast enough by hand to determine if the pump is obstructed. Does the cycle drain the water? If the cycle stops and there is water in the bottom not being pumped out then you should look at the pump and the motor to determine problem.

Beko dishwasher doesn always fill with water but makes sounds as if it does. Other times it works great any ideas?


depending on chosen wash cycle washers are not always supposed to 'fill' just use enough for that cycle .
If you mean sometimes no water at all and sometimes water with same settings check hoses and valves .
make sure valves are fully open hoses securely attached and hoses from valves to washer are not pinched twisted or damaged.
Hopefully the water not getting in the washer isn't leaking all over your floor below the washer.

Stagnent water smell while filling


I found that running about a quart of white vinegar through a cycle with hot water and no clothes or detergent takes care of the musty smell. Vinegar removes detergent build-up.

Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Cycle begins and we can hear water filling up, but the arm doesn't spin, and water isn't being "sprayed" around the washer. We can hear the dishwasher "clicking" throughout the cycle, but nothing else is...


There are a couple of things here. One is the pump is not coming on. The other is the unit leaking. Check the door seal for rips or tears on the bottom. Replace as needed. Also check the sump in the bottom of the unit to see if it has a lot of debris in it. This can cause the pump to not start. It could be more complex like the water valve is not shutting down all the way. The control board is bad etc.
