    Question Wash cycle not working

    Model Number: GHDA480N10WW
    Brand: GE
    Age: 1-5 years

    Dishwasher fills with water, wash cycle will not start. It heat dries and drains. But will not wash dishes. I have tried short cycle and that also will not wash. But goes thru all other cycles.

    You may have a clog or something keeping the sump pump/motor from turning.

    Read this thread:

    He found gunk blocking his filters and in the inlet sump pump assembly.

    The part# for your sump pump/motor assembly(WD26X1033) is:
    Manufacturer's Number: WD26X10033

    Cool Wash Cycle Not Working

    I took everything apart that would have to do with a clog. And that is not the problem. The dishwasher goes thru all cycles except the wash, the blades do not move. And I do not have a sub pump motor listed on the parts for this machine GHDA480N10WW
    Any other ideas are greatly appreciated. This machine just turned 3 yrs.
    Thank You
    Linda

    Angry Wash cycle doesn't work

    Thank you for your help. But at $149.50 for the part, I think I will check out a new dishwasher. You can get them at Sears outlet for $225.00.
    No more GE products for me. They are made too cheap.
    I would advise all that read this not to buy GE.
