Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

GE Dish Washer GSD 2800 DO3 runs a partial cycle...(even empty) and then beep and gives a message on control panel "washer arm blocked". Even ran without dish rack in washer still got the message. Push reset button and washer starts back runs a couple minutes and then stops and then beep and gives the same message on control panel "washer arm blocked" again. There is "NOTHING BLOCKING" the washer arm!


Answers :

The rotating arm has a magnet in it to let the controls know if it is turning. Yours is not turning so \012

  • check the jets for blockages... you might have to remove the arm to clean them properly
  • \012
  • make sure there in nothing stopping the arm from turning...spin the arm manually to see if it rotates freely.
  • \012
  • knives etc sticking upward can stop the arms from rotating on the top rack
  • \012
  • if you run without the rack the arm will obviously be not telling the electronic it is not blocked because it is not there. the rack must be in the machine with the magnet and the magnet passing correct messages.
  • \012
  • If there is really no blockage then there is a elect fault that need to be sorted professionally.
  • \012
  • PS have you taken the arm off anf squirted a hose up the inlet to see if water comes out all of the jets????

The next day when I press the start/resume control, the same thing happens. 2 to 3 blinking lights followed by beeping for several seconds. Dish washer does not start

Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.

I own a KUDS01FLSS3 KitchenAid dishwasher. The lights on the control panel do not come on and a cycle can not be started. There is about an inch of water in the bottom of the dishwasher basin and it looks like the previous cycle did not complete. I have checked the wall outlet that the washer is plugged into and the washer is receiving power from the wall. And ideas? My next thought was to take the door off and check the power supply running to the door panel and control panel.

MDB6709AWW1 Poor Quality Control Panel Our dish washer is 2 years old this month and the control panel broke!!! My service technician told me that he has seen DOZENS of new Maytag dishwasher control service panels break and is convinced it is a design flaw. When I called Maytag the customer service rep had the NERVE to tell me "that because the house is near the beach, I must get a lot of power outages and power surges, that is why the control panel broke." I told her I wasn't born yesterday

Noticed dishes on top shelf not entirely clean. Ran machine empty and opened many times during wash. Noticed that Lower Spray Arm works as expected, but Middle Spray Arm turns only 1/8 or less, then Lower Arm spins again. Schematic with Use and Care manual just says pump motor switches from one to the other in certain cycles, but I don't see this happening. Looked for obstructions to water flow and pressure seems normal. Is control for this function part of the pump, or in the control panel?

My deceased parents have a GE dishwasher (don't know the model number - can't find it on the machine and can't find the paper work) that stops working shortly you start it and displays a message on the front panel that says "Blocked wash arm - check for wash arm obstruction - restart". We restart it and get the same message shorty thereafter. This happens when the washer is COMPLETELY EMPTY, even when we remove the bottom rack. It first started after several month of inactivity. We'll just t

GE Mod # GSD22360Z04WW will not drain water. I manually pushed the solenoid down and the pump and motor seemed to run. No water pumped out of the hose that was disconnected from the garbage disposer. I have discovered that the plug for the disposer was not taken out where the dishwasher hose attached. The dish washer stopped working after a new disposer was installed. I rotated the control knob and at no time did the solenoid for the pump operate. It went back to normal position after control kn

My dishwasher is not cleaning dishes... The cycles work but the dishes do not get clean an sometimes are more dirty if that is possible. I have tried adding jet dry and extra cleaning liquid but get no results. Also there are times that the bottom of the washer fills with water unexpectedly and will even leak on to the floor. It doesn't leak when the dishwasher is running... I just don't know what to do other than clean out the spray arms. Please help.

Dishwasher will suddenly start "beeping" intermittently at several second intervals when not in use. Controls will not funtion at times, then will suddenly be OK, and run through a full cycle perfectly. Later will do the same all over again. I have replaced sequence switch, but no improvement. Does it need a control panel, and if so, should original sequence switch be OK?


HI. That original sequence switch shoudl be ok. This will essentially be a control panel issue. There may be one or two button circuits that could have become unstable,thus, causing the intermittent beeping. With that said, i would like to examine th ... GE Dishwashers

A few days ago the dish washer was running fine, maybe a single wash every day. Then, out of no were the logic seems to have left the machine. If you pressed the "normal cycle" button it would blink for about 30 to 45 seconds then the front panel would go blank. All LED lights would turn off, like it finished doing the diskes, never running a single cycle. I unplugged the machine to let all circuits reset, that worked for two days, two washes in that time.
