    Default GLD6906R10BB won't fill or drain

    Model Number: GLD6906R10BB
    Brand: GE
    Age: 6-10 years

    I have a strange issue with an approximately 8 year old GE GLD6906R10BB dishwasher. I let it run last night, and woke up this morning to a good bit of water remaining in the basin area and semi-clean dishes.

    I pressed the start button and let it go for a few seconds (knowing that the float likely wouldn't let it fill) and then pressed the start button again to cancel the cycle, which would normally result in the water being pumped from the basin, but it didn't.

    I used a shop vac to remove all of the water from the basin and also made sure that the sump screen was clear.

    I pressed the start button on the unit again, and it doesn't fill with water either. When I press the start button, I can here a slight click, which I'm assuming is the fill valve relay activating. I can also hear the click again when I press the start button to cancel the cycle. I manually filled the unit with water and started a cycle. When it came time for the pump to activate and start circulating the water, the pump makes a strange humming noise and I don't hear any circulation.

    My first instinct was a pump issue, but since the unit isn't filling, I'm at a loss. I can't imagine the fill valve, main pump, and drain pump would all die at the same time.

    Any advice on this one would be forever appreciated.

    Hi,

    It sounds like the control module has gone bad on you.

    Here's the control module for your model you can order:

    I replaced the control module, but still get the same results. Does this model have a factory diagnostic mode?

    That's very odd. Seems like you have multiple problems then, which is extremely rare.

    Ok, you will need a multimeter to see if you get 120 volts at the water inlet valve electrical connector when it should be filling.

    Ohm test your float switch too. Also make sure your float is not stuck in the UP position. It should move up and down freely and you should hear the float switch clicking each time you move it up and down. You will need to remove the float cover(dome) to access the float.

    Does this model have a factory diagnostic mode?
    Not that I'm aware of.
