Woohoo! splice the wires back together, tested for continuity, plugged it back in and it works!

Thanks again for all the help.

Well. I think I've found the problem:

Now, I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure those wires weren't chewed up like that when I bought the thing. So yes, "loose wires" for an extreme definition of "loose."

 

The good news: new harness much (MUCH!) less expensive than motor control board.

The bad news: It's backordered at Repair Clinic - out of stock for 3-5 weeks.

 

Thanks for the help guys.

 

 

Have you checked the drum bearings in accordance with the patented Samurai Techniqueâ„¢? 

 

 

 

 

I had not, but oddly enough a 2" wolf spider decided to amble across my keyboard while I was watching the vid. I told him to skedaddle unless he was going to pay my subscription.




#225284 GE Triton XL dishwasher GSD6600G00BB will not drain (again)

Posted by MKeating42 on 26 February 2012 - 03:39 PM

So I pulled the pump off and flushed it out. Some gookus, but not enough that it would have bound up the impeller. I tried to turn the impeller with a screwdriver but couldn't get enough leverage to move it. It looked like the only thing holding the hose inlet/outlet assembly to the motor/impeller were three screws, so I backed them out and the pump came apart just as expected.

Once I had it apart, I could turn the impeller pretty easily, but I noticed a very different kind of gookus caught up around the base of it. The very rare gookus elasticus, in fact. Turns out, the pump was jammed because someone put a rubber band down the drain, and it got wound around the impeller assembly:

Untangled it, put the pump back together, reattached the leads, put it into service mode and voila!

Thanks again for all the help. Some genuine Cleveland microbrew headed your way, as soon as I figure out Venmo.
