I have a GE Profile (PDW7300G00BB) dishwasher which powers up and turns on. However water is not pumping (and impeller blades not turning).

Heater element is getting hot and if I dump water into the bottom, the washer will also pump it out.

To me, I'm guessing the electronic actuator for the water is broke. Any ideas?

I am handy and not afraid to take things apart. I have voltage meters so I can test components, I just need to know what to look for, test and how. TIA Herb

Are you saying water is not flowing into the basin when you start a cycle? If so, then yes, begin your investigation at the water inlet valve ==> http://www.repaircli...er=PDW7300G00BB

It's located behind the kickplate.

You can check the valve coil for continuity. A better check would be to see if it's getting 120vac when the dishwasher should be filling.

OK, I finally got around to testing the Water Inlet Valve and it seems I'm reading zero voltage when the washer should be filling w/ water. I also pulled the cover off the float on the inside of the washer and when I put a piece of duct tape on ball of the float, it moves up and down and I here a slight clicking when moving the float up and down manually.

So maybe the float switch is shot, and maybe the control panel? I know very little about washer so I'm just guessing.

Also, are there schematics available for this washer?

Where to I find a list of common parts which typically are replaced for a washer.

check the operation of the Flood (float) Switch with an OHM meter
Check the resistance across the Water Valve.
Note the Dual Zener diodes across the Water Valve.
