SOURCE: GE Nautilus dishwasher wont run

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

You may not have enough water entering the dishwasher and need to have the water valve replaced. Try adding a quart of water during the wash cycle to see if it makes a difference.

Sounds like a motor overload switch. You may have a bind on your motor or a clogged water pump. Try removing the kick plate and take a look underneath. You'd be amazed at what can end up under a dishwasher.

Ok guys, I just had this gigantic piece of **** malfunction on me, exhibiting the same behavior as described - buttons doing nothing.

I looked online and apparently you have to hold the "time delay" button, and the "light wash" button at the SAME time for THREE seconds. You really have to push those suckers in hard, thanks to GE's awesome design on this panel.

After I did that I slammed my fists against the panel pretty hard about 8 times in a fit of rage. Magically the damn thing beeped and I was able to configure my wash (Pots and pans, heated dry, blah).

Whew! Sadly I rent my house, so I stuck with this abomination.

My GE quiet power 1 dishwasher has flashing lights and won't stop cycling, what do i do?


I have had this problem with this dishwasher in my rented apartment occasionally since I moved in. It would usually reset itself if I let it sit a while, but not today. Today all it would do is flash and beep and I finally just unplugged it. I stumbled across this page and read the post by Dyons above and it worked. Close the door, let it grind away and within 2 minutes it will reset itself. Thanks, Dyons!!!

I don't know why my microwaves keep beeping and starts the Exhaust Fan automatically every 5 mins. The display says F-3. Please help me with the problem I'll appreciate.


F-3 is usually for the temperature sensor being faulty. What you need most likely is to replace the temperature sensor. This would explain why your microwave oven exhaust fan keeps going off, because your temperature sensor is telling it that it is overheating even though it isn't.

Oven comes on for 5 min then shuts down everything even the keyboard


Same problem here on JKP15WOW1WW. The cycle starts like this:
1) Open circuit Breaker
2) Open oven panel and push ribbon connector to ERC. Replace planel.
3) Close circuit breaker
4) Run to oven, notice clock flashing some time but not 12:00 and start Bake. Bake button beeps and starts bake coil.
5) Within 5 minutes hear a beep and all buttons on panel are unresponsive. Bake continues. if oven light is on it continues to glow. Only button that responds with a beep (and not to clear bake or oven light) is Clear botton.

Try this, but keep in mind that one of the options wipes all your data.

These should be safe to use, and 'should' keep your data.

  • Step 1: Turn off the PLAYSTATION 3 by holding the Power button on the front of the unit till the Power light is red.

    Step 2:
    1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the PLAYSTATION 3 is powering on.
    2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset.
    3. Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a third beep and the system will power off (Power light is red).

    Step 3:
    1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the PLAYSTATION 3 to power on.
    2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset.
    3. Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep. At that point release the Power button. If you succeeded in activating Safe Mode, you will see a message on the screen saying, "Connect the controller using a USB cable and then press the PS button."
    4. Connect a USB cable to the controller and the PLAYSTATION 3 and press the PS button to enter Safe Mode.
    5. Then you will see the Safe Mode menu.


    Step 4: We recommending performing the safe mode options in the following order until one of the options works for you. If one of the options work, do not continue onto the other options.

    It is beeping "Error" with 5 beeps


    5 beep error means that the waste ink tank is full. You can reset the counter to make it print by doing the following: You have to be exact. If you make a mistake in any of it, just go back to the beginning and start it all over.

    1.Unplug the power cord from the printer

    2.Hold down BOTH the POWER and RESUME button at the same time and then plug the power cord back in. Keep holding down the buttons until the printer finishes its powering up noises.

    3.After the printer is quiet, release the POWER and RESUME buttons. Then hold down the RESUME and CARTRIDGE buttons at the same time with one hand, and press the POWER button with the other. KEEP HOLDING DOWN the RESUME and CARTRIDGE buttons until you hear 2 beeps. They will come quickly together and one beep will be longer than the other. Listen carefully, as they are not very loud.

    4. Once you hear the 2 beeps, release both buttons.

    5. After both buttons have been released, then press the CARTRIDGE button 15 times. You will hear a beep each time it's pressed.

    6. After you finish pressing the cartridge button 15 times, then press the RESUME button one time. The printer will beep and shut off.

    7. Turn the printer back on by pressing the POWER button. The printer will work fine now. The waste ink will have been reset to 50% full.

    After setting the time did you remember to re-lock the keypad by pressing and holding the "down arrow" for 5-seconds until you hear a long beep and then the "up arrow" for 5-seconds until you hear a long beep? Several minutes later the Green LED should come on indicating the cycle has started.

    Door lock lites keeps flashing but the door is not locked


    The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

    Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

    Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

    Ge quiet power 3 dishwasher


    According to the GE repairman who visited, the solution is to close the machine (with the lights flashing). The machine starts and goes through the cycles, which it does rapidly and then all the lights turn off and the machine becomes silent after 1-1/2 to 2 minutes. Then the machine has been reset to normal. During this reseting period nothing happens inside the machine, although you may hear a running sound.

    Thus, the solution is to run the machine in this flashing light state for the 1-2 minutes it takes to go raipdly through each cycle and then reset.

    I hope this helps.
