Question:

GE potscrubber 900 dishwasher not draining. I’ve done this:
Removed screen and found melted plastic piece 4 inches long-removed. Pump run, no water discharged
Used baking powder and vinegar twice, pump runs no water discharged.
Removed drain hose from drain and ran drain cleaner wire as far as could go, back and forth, motor runs no water discharged.
Removed 2 screws holding kick plate in place unable to remove kick plate to access hoses beneath DW.
Next steps?

hi there

esequiel walker :

so the drainhose is clear

esequiel walker :

can i get a model number please

Customer-l08cuq3h- :

I did give it in my opening statement, 900

esequiel walker :

one second

esequiel walker :

this is the pump

esequiel walker :

it has a drain solenoid apparently its faulty so no water is coming out

esequiel walker :

Customer-l08cuq3h- :

Will esequiel step back in?

esequiel walker :

yes

esequiel walker :

go ahead

Customer-l08cuq3h- :

So solenoid needs to be fixed.

esequiel walker :

its part of the motor drain pump but yes it can be replaced

Customer-l08cuq3h- :

How accessed, how removed, how much to replace, where to get if still available?

esequiel walker :

to fix this problem

esequiel walker :

pressing accept for my help pays me thanks

Customer-l08cuq3h- :

You haven’t helped me yet. If piece of plastic was found in trap how do we know it is a solenoid problem if we haven’t inspected lines beneath DW? If I say accept now, how can I be assured this work will continue? I am concerned that you asked me what the model was when it was in first line of my request. I’m not sure you have read my full explanation.

esequiel walker :

hi that is just a trap its designed for that also there is a plastic screen in the drain area that catches all the big stuff and a metal blade to chop up this you have no water draining

esequiel walker :

thats a solenoid not engaging and opening the chute

esequiel walker :

there is only one line and that is the drain. with all respect i know these machines

Customer-l08cuq3h- :

As you can see from my opening, I had removed screen and insert in drain channel. I also ended my opening by saying I had removed 2 screws from kick plate and was unable to remove same. I am willing to have you paid if you tell me how removed, how accessed, part available, approximate cost?

esequiel walker :

the solenoid is part of the pump and motor

esequiel walker :

to access it the machine will need to be pulled out completey

esequiel walker :

to get to it

Customer-l08cuq3h- :

Does that mean that the pump and motor must be replaced to fix? If so makes sense to buy new?

esequiel walker :

yes as they are both one part how old is the machine

Customer-l08cuq3h- :

15 years!

esequiel walker :

thank u
