Question and Answers


Why would my GE model GHDA475M00CS dishwasher fill but put no water in the blades to get the dishes wet?


The model number you submitted had to be altered but it would appear this is an older unit that is filling with water but not circulating it and you mention a burning smell.

From the description you give the motor is not circulating the water. If you haven't already then remove the lower access panels from the dishwasher. See the image below for a similar panel.

With the panel removed you may be able to tell if the motor is running or just humming. If the motor is hung up or jammed then it might give off an burning smell.

If the motor is jammed there is one thing to try if caution is used. Turn the power to the dishwasher off. The may be a plastic shield that can be removed to access a fan blade on the motor. With no power to the dishwasher you can try turning the blade. It may be stuck and you may feel it break free as you try and turn it. If if turns freely then you can try the dishwasher again and see if it runs.

Replacing a motor on an older dishwasher is not an economical repair to make. You can view some similar new dishwashers from the following link: New Similar Dishwashers .

The WD26X10013 motor/pump is approximately $156 dollars if your curious about replacing the motor.

I hope this information is helpful to you but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.

Why won't my GE dishwasher cycle water in the machine?


From what you are describing it sounds like either the float assembly or water valve is malfunctioning.

You should be able to check the float yourself. With the door open you will see the float on the left hand side. This is the device that prevents the dishwasher from overfilling with water, just in case the drain pump fails or the timer is advanced to another fill cycle after the unit has already filled.

You will need to remove the single screw that holds the float cover in position & remove the cover. You should now be able to check that the float moves freely up & down. It usually will only move about a half inch in either direction. Be sure not to pull up on the float too hard. You should also be able to hear the click of the float switch which is right below the float. The float should be in the down position for proper operation.

The water valve is located behind the lower inspection panel on the left hand side. I do not recommend you removing this panel. With the timer set to the beginning of a cycle you should be able to hear the hum or buzz from the water valve. Be sure the water supply to the dishwasher is turned on under the sink.

If your dishwasher is still not filling after making these checks I would recommend calling 1-800-803-6775 for a service technician's assistance.
