Topics I've Started

GE stack wont advance to or out of spin

27 March 2014 - 06:22 PM

model#  gtup270em0ww


Washer starts and sprays then agitates then sprays then pumps out then sprays and continues this sequence.


Customer says it never spins. They put it in spin cycle and machine starts its routine and spins but never shuts off.


I put it in spin and it ran for almost 15 mins until I shut it off. Also it stayed in pump out almost 5 mins before it started to spin.


I diddnt find a tech sheet on the machine so I dont know the sequence of operation or any other info about it.

This is the first one I have run accross of this design.


Any sujestions would be of a great help.


Whirlpool Undercounter dishwasher DU810SWPQ4

27 March 2013 - 09:45 AM



Last week I ran a call on this dishwasher.


The timer knob was impossible to turn.

I took the door apart, checked the linkage and freed up the knob.

Sprayed a light coat of silicone lube on the knob. It was working when I left.



The timer turns freely. It was definately the knob sticking in the panel.


The customer just called and said it was doing it again.


There is no dirt build up on the knob or panel.

The d/w is only about 3 years old.


Has anyone run accross this problem?

I am going back this afternoon and was consider replacing the knob....

mod:  106.58023801


We have made 3 or 4 trips on this and tried several things.


Freezer was holding sub-zero temp first trip.
Fresh food side was hovering around  41 to 43 degrees. 


Evap fan running. 


Mecahanical damper OPEN.


No excesvive frost on evaperator.



Temp controls at max (set by owner).


Compressor running but not too hot.

Drier warm, not hot, not cold.


Condenser clean and fan running.


Slight ice build up on damper. Not enough to prevent operation.






Frozen food in freezer average temp  15 degrees.

FF side...  Cottage cheese on top shelf  48 degrees.  Broccali in bottom crisper  45 degrees.


Checked compressor RLA:  1.0 amp.                                 Rating plate did not specify  RLA

Unplugged and plugged back in for LRA:  11.2 amps.        Compressor rating plate says  LRA is 14amps.


All other aspects check the same as first trip. We thought it was the ice shoot because there was ice build up in the freezer and the dispenser door. Cleared that and it worked for about 3 weeks. 


Made another trip and same issue with ice dispenser....cleard again and disabled Ice maker to see if that fixed it.


Back out after 2 weeks (today)  no ice build up and the fresh food side is warming up.


My thoughts, though maybe wrong, is the compressor may be weak on the low side. Owner said she heard it shut off but couldnt tell me how long it had been running. Also could have been going into defrost.


Any thoughts?
