    Default GE dishwasher 165D5450P001

    Another appliance breaking!!

    This time it's the dishwasher. The other night I noticed it was stuck in the "drain" mode for quite some time. I went and turned it off, and back on, and it continued through the rest of the cycle like normal.

    Last night I load the dishwasher and turn it on. After 3-4 minutes I notice it sounds like the water was not sloshing around. I went over and turned the dishwasher off and opened it. No water! I turn it back on and turn the timer to different functions, but the cycles don't change in the motor. I wait 10 minutes, and still no water. Finally, during the rinse cycle at the end of the washing cycle, the water fills up. So I get a soapy rinse off of the dishes inside.

    This morning I try the float valve. It's clicking when I push it up and down, although it only moves about a quarter inch. It also turns manually.

    I start it up just to see what happens and it starts washing!! What the heck is going on?

    thanks.

    Hi theChad,

    Please double check your model# again. The model# tag should be inside the dishwasher frame after you open the door.

    Your water inlet valve may be starting to go out. Keep your eye on it to see if anymore loads keep doing that.

    Okay, update.

    My wife starts it and there is a little water in it. It drained eventually, and didn't fill back up.

    It's draining right now and changing wash cycles. It didn't stop draining, and sounded like water was filling and emptying at the same time. It drained for a minute or so, and I stopped the machine. Open the door, and there's water in it. Lock it to turn it back on, the draining stops, and it begins washing again. Completed that little cycle, and now it's draining again. Drains for a few minutes, and I'm lying down in front of the machine. Immediately after the draining ends, the spring plate kit moves the armature into the solenoid. But 7 minutes later, I've still got no water in the machine.

    Could a rusted bracket around the solenoid with a little drip be causing this? I'll include a link to a picture I took.

    Thanks again!

    Yes theChad,

    From that photo that rust is definitely causing the issue.

    Here's the one for your model you can order:
    Manufacturer's Number: WD21X10060



    Its #493 here:

    I also had this part go bad. I have ordered and received the new part. But now I'm having troubles getting the new part installed.

    My old solenoid burned up, melting the internal plastic onto the plunger causing it to seize up. Since my new solenoid did not come with the plunger. I had to chip away the melted plastic from around the plunger so that I could remove it from the old solenoid. But I'm not sure how that is supposed to be installed into the new solenoid. It fits in the hole just fine, but there's nothing to keep it in there. If I turn the solenoid upside down, the plunger will just fall right out. And, unless I'm installing the new solenoid wrong, it seems that the spring loaded gate valve will just pull the plunger right out of the solenoid unless it's secured somehow. I'm realizing now that I should have taken pictures before removing the old solenoid.

    Am I doing something wrong? Does anyone know if I can access installation instructions somewhere?

    Your solenoid should of come with the plunger as in the kit above.

    Default Solenoid

    I didn't order the kit, just the solenoid. Unfortunately, I didn't realize the complete kit was available when I ordered. This is what I ordered:

    Partselect.com - Parts And All Brands of Appliance Parts

    The model # of my GE dishwasher is GSD1100G00WW. Do I need to order the complete kit?

    Thanks!
