I recently went out on a call were they had a new garbage disposal installed and the plumber did not remove the knock out plug for the drain. After I removed the tub and tried to drain the dishwasher I found the motor seized up. Did leaving the knock out in cause the motor to burn up or was that 14 year old motor just on its last leg?

It seems pretty unlikely that the plug would be the cause of the motor problem.  I think that's probably just a coincidence.

GE dishwasher are famous for the seal faces sticking if left unused for a long time - that doesn't seem like it would be the case here, unless maybe it set for a month or so before they called you.  These motors are not very powerfull and it doesn't take much to keep it from starting if anything is binding it up.

 

Most of the time you can turn the motor by the fan blade and break the sticking seal loose and it will be OK.

 

If it continues to happen then a replacement of the impeller and seal kit or the complete pump/motor assembly would be the next thing to do.
