Question about GE 24 in. GSD2230Z Built-in Dishwasher
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?
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.
