Default Replaced melted armature - melted again after first use
Model Number: GSC3508KK00WW   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a portable GE dishwasher. It wasn't draining and after reading on here and elsewhere it led me to the armature/solenoid. After replacing it, I can the unit and during the first "drain" cycle it drained. I had assumed it was working but this morning when I checked it there was water at the bottom of the unit again. I checked the armature again it is melted again!

I read in this thread that there might be an issue with the timer:

solenoid frozen, armature has melted plastic

Can someone please guide me how to test the timer. Is there anything else that could be causing the brand new armature to melt again?

Also, this is a Canadian model. I can't seem to find a schematic for it. This is the part I used to install:

Just saw a warning now on another part suppliers website to look at the "timer" and replace it at the same time...Now I wish I had seen that before... someone else said they had the same problem, replaced and it burned out a few days later again.

Guess I want to make 100% sure the only reason it is burning out could be the timer... or, find a way to test the timer (Without the schematic I am not sure what it is). I haven't flipped the unit down again as I need to bail out the water still.

you could measure the voltage across the solenoid.
At the start of a drain cycle it should get 120 volts but only for a couple seconds.

Thanks,

Is there a universal way to get to the "drain" cycle? Like, would I just I just removed the solenoid and had my meter hooked up to the electrical connection that would connect to the solenoid and I waited to see if there was a "voltage" reading but nothing came up while I waited for 20+ minutes. I thought when the proper part was in it had drained before that... I tried moving the dial forward but the voltage never changed on the meter. I guess next I will re-connect the old part and hold the meter on the connectors.

That would be a good way to do it.
It should drain at the start of the cycle
