Having problems with your GE Dishwashers ?

Diswasher stop working, it fills with water but doesnt do anything else. you hear clicking and clunging as you turn the knob is there anything that can be done


Answers :

Look very closely at the wash motor shaft extension on your dishwasher. You’ll need to disassemble from the spray arm downward to get to it. A plastic shaft extension was installed from the factory. If something too hard got caught in the cutter that mounts onto this extension, that plastic shaft extension strips out. When you remove the shaft extension from the motor shaft you will likely see stripped out threads from the extension left on the motor shaft. Replace the shaft extension, seal kit, and cutter with the new improved parts kit. Then you should hear that old familiar sound of your dishes being blasted clean.

Just turned the dishwasher on at the wall and tap after it's been sat off for a day. It's done one cycle (eco) and now doesn't seem to be doing anything but flashing. The two lights flashing are the power and eco lights. I have tried turning it off on the console but it turns itself back on and continues flashing. It sounds like it's whirring but I can't hear water. It did have a small leak when we first plumbed it in if that makes any difference?

Hi, I have a Whirlpool dishwasher, model DU980QPDQ6. The problem is it won't turn on. We bought it in 3/98 and had no problems with it in the past. The lights go on, I can hear two clicks, or relays, and it would start after the second click. Well it does'nt do anything! Help me please! Thank you!

My dishwasher has power but does not turn on to any cycle when the control knob is in that position. It was adding water and starting to wash, but not going through the whole cycle and not rinsing and drying. Now it has water stuck in it. I hear sounds underneath like it's trying to go to the next cycle (a clicking noise), but then it doesn't. I put a new timer in it, but it was doing the same thing before that.

Model #363.14232100 dishwasher. When you turn the switch to on, it will not come on. If you keep turning the knob slowly you can hear the dishwasher trying to start up,but it doesn't. Keep turning the knob and its the same thing, sounds like it will start, but it doesn't. It did fill with water, but once it was opened it didn't start up where it left off. The lock switch was in position, and still nothing. Now I have water in the bottom but can't get the thing to come on. Any suggestions? Help!

My dishwasher SMS 448 works up to the point in the cycle when the dispenser is supposed to dislodge the Powerball detergent. It doesn't, and the machine stops. If I open the door and click the dispenser, the Powerball falls into the dishwasher unit itself. But when I close the door, the machine doesn't operate until I turn the knob a bit farther on in the cycle. Then, no water comes out, but the knob moves on in the cycle and the heating pipes heat up

KENMORE MODEL # 363.16222100 Hello - my dishwasher (model# above) is currently filled with H20 and will not drain/work. When the knob to select the dishwasher cycle to begin is turned, it just 'clicks' and does not engage the washing cycle. When I tried to just let it run the cycle as is to 'restart', it had an electrical odor to it., Currently the knob is at the 'Rinse & Hold-(Heated Dry Off)' part of the cycle and all dishes have been removed. I would appreciate any assistance available. Thank

I have a Samsung DMR78AHS. I recently had a HE1 error code, which is a heating error code. I followed the manual's troubleshooting steps - I reset the breaker as well as removed the dishes and ran it empty with soap. Now when I run it you can hear it fill and empty, but it does not wash anything... no water is sprayed. Is there anything that can be done to reset this or is it a totally different problem.

All of a sudden, my Kenmore dishwasher (Model 363.1411691) will not cycle. When I lock it shut and try to set it to wash, all I hear is a click--no motor running, no water sounds. As I advance the timer knob, I just get clicks where each cycle should begin. There is standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher which does not drain out. Any advice would be much appreciated, for sure.


Hi.The clicks are simply the relays in the timer board that try switching on. The control module is likely working.The cycle does not start because of a different problem.If no light is coming on, then ensure that wall socket ... Dishwashers

Kitchenaid Dishwasher model # KUDS25SHBS1 has started making noise. Noise happens when unit is draining so perhaps its the same mechanism that houses the grinder. Can definetly hear a clicking as something spins around to drain the unit. I have removed the washing armature and plastic skirt around bottom and felt underneath the skirted area, but don't feel anything caught or jammed. Noise is getting louder as more draining cycles are being utilized (i.e. as we use the machine more). Anyone have

Kenmore Model 1590 Dishwasher, 1985, sitting unused since about 1994. Takes water into tub but never goes through any washing/rinsing cycles; water stands in bottom (I stop it below door level). A click, like a solenoid activation from the timer area, but motor never does anything. Removed the shroud covering what I assume is the impeller, which was stuck, but freed it by turning several times...made no difference. Suggestions??

I have an older Maytag model #WU482. For some reason it will not drain and will only run using the economy mode. I can hear the timer ticking at all other cycles and it does click between cycles. I recently replaced the drain float and the machine had been working fine after. The motor is working and the belt is good. I think the kids were playing with the timer knob. Could this cause a problem with the timer motor? Or does this sound more like a pump out issue, impeller? I'm thinking its
