Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Fills but motor doesn't run

\015 My GE GSD2800L04 dishwasher fills with water and then stops doing anything at all. After a minute it says the spray arm is blocked, but there is nothing in the washer. It does this for all wash cycle selections(heavy,rinse, etc.) Any ideas?\015

Answers :

I reckon that is a computor control circuit so cut the AC supply beaker\015\012off for a few minutes to to the washer and see if it will reset the\015\012computor and work properly again.

Won't run...... Dishwasher fills.... and will empty okay but it doesnt wash. There is no cycling of the washer blades. Is this a motor problem? Any ideas? I hate Sears. Contacted them and all they wanted to do was sell me a service contract. Thanks Drew


Hi,\015\012It sounds like the main pump isn't running - either it is jammed with something, burned out or has a power supply problem.

My sound conditioned Whirlpool dishwasher is real old. It fills up completely with water. It looks like it will overflow, so I stop it. I thought it always started washing from the start. Do they always fill completely up with water, then start washing. I never noticed. I am afraid the water will overflow. Can it? Last time I ran this, it had a real loud motor. I used to hear the motor running from the start, but now I don't, just water filling up to what looks like overflow if I let it. I baile

Maytag Dishwasher Model MDB4100AWQ When I start the Light Wash Cycle: Washer fills with water, heater comes on (I checked it with a volt meter--120 volts), timer runs, motor never runs, before the timer gets to "rinse" the heating delay light on the door comes on and the timer stops. The heater is still on (120volts) nothing further happens it just boils away on the water in the washer.

No water pressure coming out while ingine is running. hoses/ attachments not clog. Pulled and opened pump, didn't see anything broken although noticed pump was filled with oil/lubricant but about 1/4" below top surface. Is it suppose to be filled to the top? What kind of oil is used on the pump? And how come there's no water pressure coming out while the motor is running and handle trigger engaged?

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid (model # KUDMO1T JWHO) dishwasher that runs the motor in all cycles, with water fill & drain working fine, but the pump is not pumping water during any cycle, as the spinners and the inside of the washer are dry when I open the door, except for the water sitting in the bottom. Also, no normal swishing sound of water when the motor runs in any cycle. Looks to me like a mechanical break in the pump drive. How do I check the pump drive on this model? Do you have any

I have a Kenmore diswasher model 587 1525. I can hear the water filling and rinsing, but during the wash cycle I do not hear the motor. At the end of the wash cycle and when I open the door I see the detergent tablet is sitting on the floor. The dishes are not cleaned. Does this mean that the motor has failed or is it the control card. I can hear some clicking noise while the motor should be running. Maybe solenoids cycling.

My kitchenaid KUDI01DL dishwasher began making a lot of noise while running, then subsequently decided not to circulate the water around to wash the dishes. It sounds like the motor is running (maybe) but there is no washing action going on. The machine will fill, drain and heat the water but nothing else. Is it likely that the pump/motor assembly has ceased to function properly? thanks...


The problem is very likely in the chopper and/or somewhat possible in the impeller. The chopper is replaceable from the front.

Dishwasher cycles with timer, won't fill with water. Motor runs fine, drain and fill valves test fine, float switch tests fine too. Water pressure fine. I'm thinking the timer is bad and won't send a signal to the water valve to open. What do you think? The system here doesn't know what a GSD2030F00WW is, so I had to pic one with a computer board, mine is not that sophisticated.

My Viking dishwasher won't fill with water. The motor seems to be running but no water enters the chamber. It's Sunday morning so I'm not able to get a repair person here. I got a response that said ''The ventilators are blocked. Turn it off and have the motor checked'' i was hoping for instructions on how to unblock the ventilators or clean it out. I have a house full of people for the weekend and would love to get this thing back up before Monday when a repair person could come. Any suggestion
