Having problems with your GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher ?

My GE Dishwasher GSD2030 fills with water, but won't drain. If I slowly move the cycle dial, it makes humming and clicking sounds as if it's trying to engage and start doing something, but it doesn't. Any thoughts?


Answers :

The problem is more than likely something is stuck in the prop. that helps to grind up foods so they can pass thru the pump. Remove your dish racks, take a small screw driver and gently pry the lock out that the sprayer sits in and pull the sprayer up and out. If it has a filter, remove the 1/4 in screw that holds it in and push the lock in and pull the filter up. You will notice 2 screws in a plastic strainer towards the back of the tub. Remove the strainer. You will then see where the water drains.Remove that strainer and feel down in the drain. you will feel the prop. Remove any foreign materials from the drain and from around the prop. Probably a piece of macaroni. lol . Make sure you turn off the breaker before starting any repairs.

My garbage disposal had something stuck in it. i did not know and the sink was backed up. i started the dishwasher and it sounded like the motor was running like a drain emptying...i thought it would stop but continued. i unplugged the dishwasher, freed the garbage disposal and the drain is now clear. i turned on the dishwasher and the sound is the same. the large POT light is lit up and when you try to shut it off it doesnt stop running. i unplugged it for fear of breaking something.

How to diagnose? My Kenmore won't run. First it was flashing the clean light 7 times, so I figured out how to reset ("High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"/"High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"), but when I try to run a wash, it sounds like it's not getting water into the tub. When I checked it several minutes later, it was in "Cancel" mode, making a sound like it was draining (or trying to drain), then the clean light started flashing 7 times again. Clearly, the machine has something wrong but I don't know where to


Once this code goes off, it is not going to run. The module has picked up ths issue as you said. I would check the sensor first. You can make sure it is getting current by testing the circuit. ... Kenmore Dishwashers

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher, SS, model # KUDIO1ILBL6. When you press the ''normal'' button to run it, nothing happens. Tried other cycles and same thing, the green light goes on above the cycle but its just not starting. I tried resetting by opening, pressing high temp scrub then energy saver dry, high temp scrub, energy save dry, then close and hit cancel. Is there any other combo to reset it? or does it sound like something else is wrong? thanks!

I have a Bosch dishwasher model SHU9915 that is 8 years old. It just give a ''hum'' when it tries to go into the wash cycle. It stops humming after a few seconds, like it overheats or overloads, then after a minute or so it tries to start the motor again and ''hums''. It continues this as long as you wish to watch it. Does it sound like the pump has gone out or just a capacitor or something small?

The electronic panel on the top of the door doesnt light up anymore and is unresponsive, when the power is turned on, the machine makes a sound like its running or draining or something, but nothing is happening. This all started after a potential electrical disruption following a power outage. Perhaps there is a fuse or some relatively easy way to fix this? or am I screwed and should just call a repair man. Thanks for your suggestions, Brodie

Dishwasher Dilema Hi, Can someone help me solve this problem. Last time I had a problem with my dishwashers I was pretty successful in solving it on this site. I was running a reg wash on the top drawer of my Fisher&Paykel when I suddendly had to stop it in the middle of a wash to add more dishes (something I do all the time) suddenly both screens started beeping with an F1 along with a wrench. It sounds like both motors top and bottom are running full blast. I tried shutting the power for a few

My Kenmore Elite suddenly stopped filling with water. I pushed start but when I checked it hours later the soap dispenser door had opened, the soap is just lying in a puddle, and nothing is clean but the clean light on the front panel is blinking. I tried again to no avail. Any ideas? I've had the machine since it first came on the market and have had other issues with it--it never drains completely, it makes sounds like someone revving a sports car engine when the drain pump is engaged, my dish

Our Ingis ADL 834 dishwasher just stopped working last night. Sounded like a fuse went or something out but I've no idea if they even have fuses or reset switches. It's built in so a complete pain to pull it out from the kitchen recess but it may be what we have to do. So at the moment it just doesnt respond at all. Any thoughts welcomed!

The "clean" light keeps flashing, but dishwasher will not start to fill and operate. When I push the cancel-drain there is a motor sound as if it is doing something, but there is still no response if I try to push "normal wash". Linda Watters

I have a Siemens Dishwasher. I'm not sure of the model but it is built in, has concealed controls and was purchased about 6 years ago at Best Buy. It sort of looks like the SL85. When started, it runs for a few minutes and then starts to make a horrible sound. ALmost a grinding sound but may also be like water trying to get through a small opening. The sound does not stop even after turning off the DW and even the power to it. Only turning off the water supply does it stop. Help?

Dishwasher: Kenmore ultra wash sensor quiet guard plus. I'm in a rental so I don't have the manual or model number. A few days ago it just wouldn't start the wash cycle. When you press normal wash then start the no heat dry and lock lights flash every other second or so but nothing happens. I can hit the cancel button and it will make sounds like its trying to drain, and after about 5 minutes stops. I've done the heated wash/ no heat dry sequence to try to reset but no luck.

Dishwasher will not finish/start a cycle. The washer filled with water and during the cycle I heard a pop like someone knocked something over in the kitchen. I smelled an electrical burning smell. All the lights and the buttons work on the front panel, but when I try to start I hear an electrical buzz like it is trying to start, but nothing happens and after 3 seconds the electrical buzzing stops and the lights on the panel flash. I removed the dishwasher and found that when I hit the start butt

Dishwasher smoking Started cycle, everything seemed fine. Opened it to put something in and when I closed it to restart it sounded strange. Then the smoke starting pouring out of it and it smelled like something electrical burning. I immediately turned the wall switch off. It is a Kenmore, not sure of the model at this time. Is this a common occurence like if a specific part went out? Thanks for your time.

Blanco dishwasher Hi. Saw your answer on the Blanco dishwasher. We have same problem. Dishwasher makes all the pump sounds it used to, but does not start to drain at cycle start, and then no water comes in. read the manual again and think we may have been washing up - ie sinks plugged. Could this have triggered something. You mentioned something about a "micro switch" could you tell me where would this be?. We have a BFDW 650 S. Thanks, Angie

This problem is intermitten. Kenmore 665 16765690. starting the dishwasher, I hear a motor running. I think it is trying to empty water, however there isn't any water. I will turn the time rotor around to the start again. Sometimes, when I do this the motor running sound has stopped and I hear gurgling sound of water entering. Once this happens, the cycle is good and does well. However, there are times, rotation the timer back to the beginning may take several times, up to about 20 times.

I have a GE dishwasher with the following model number: GSD3230F00WW. Last night, while the dishwasher was in the clean cycle, a buzzing/grinding sound came from underneath the dishwasher. I removed the access panel to try to isolate the sound. It appeared to come from a solenoid that was connected to an arm that opened and closed something. I am not sure if the solenoid is bad or if there was something that was preventing it from operating properly. I moved the arm to which it was connected


The part you are referring to is the pump out solenoid. ( part # WD21X10071) When the dishwasher is suppose to pump out, power is applied to the solenoid and it swings a flap inside the pump assembly to divert the pumped water out the ... GE Dishwashers
