I bought this dishwasher 5 years ago and was kept in the box until last month. I installed it, turned on the water and no water is being pumped into the unit from the water release valve in the dishwasher. I then checked all the cycles and everything works except for the pump. Then I checked to see if any power/volts was going to the pump and there is none. Could it be a wiring problem or could it be the circuit board?? please help. thanks


You will have to check all the connections visually. Since you know how to use a meter, see where the current stops. See if there is current coming from the control board to the pump. the water inlet solenoid valve should "free flow" water into the m ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher

MacMarkus, I just got parts for the dishwasher. I put the circ pump in and no water enters the dishwasher. I also see that I didn't put a plastic cover on one of the leads, so I need to pull the dishwasher to do that. How do I know if I've installed the pump correctly?

I have a whirlpool gold model GU1500 diswasher. When the rinse cycle ends the water pumps out into the garbage disposal like it should, but then water backs-up from somewhere into the bottom of the dishwasher. The overfill protection drain seems OK...the water doesn't overflow. It doesn't have a air gap on the sink. The drain hose goes directly from the dishwasher to the inlet on the garbage disposal. It appears to be properly installed per the installation instructions. The washer is about 4 ye

I am a licensed plumber who installed a frigidaire fdb1o5rem1 dishwasher for a customer about 2 years ago. It has water to the solenoid valve and the screen is clean. I can see water coming in to the unit on left side through the port hole on the inside of the unit. Dishes do not get clean and it doesnt act like water is being distrubuted inside the dishwasher. Soap never gets washed away from door. Dishwasher makes funny sound in mid cycle like the pump is not running in wash cycle. Discharge p

GE PDW7300 dishwasher - must slam the door shut to get a light on the panel and when the START button is pressed, it looks like the dishwasher is cycling thru a wash, but there is no water. When I press the START cycle again, it seems like it thinks its pumping the water out for a few minutes, then the light will go off. If I start it again and push really hard against the door, I can hear the water go on. But if I stop pushing the door, the water stops. The dishwasher was installed in 2001, but

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 catering boss has installed a new midi 50 but the drain is to high and it won't drain. I'm I right in thinking this is a manual drain machine without a drain pump.our old machine had a drain pump. Is there any legal height that a commercial dishwasher has to be installed off the floor in regard to health and safety. thanks.


Lower height can be a violation, higher won't be. Pumps are only used to drain in a high volume environment. Many commercial clippers and washers don't have them. ... Dishwashers
