Question about GE Dishwashers

1 Answer

My GE Dishwasher model GDF610PGJ2WW won't start and beeps three times.

I did press and hold "Select Cycle" and "Start" for Five seconds. Since all the LED's flashed I am assuming that the dishwasher thinks that the door is open. Will simply replacing the door latch fix this problem? Is the correct part WD21X10490?

Usually has a microswitch that connects when the door is closed. Check to see where the switch is and check to see if it is connecting.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Dishwasher clean light ind flashing and won't start

That means the control sensed that the heater in the d/w did not operate 3 times in a row. so the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. use a meter to see if it reads open, if so order a heater assy it will come with a new control replace it to. If your heater checks good press in sequence normal wash , heat dry ,normal wash,heat dry , normal wash , heat dry three times within 6 sec all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that d/w does not heat it's own water your incoming water temp should be 120. the d/w will maintain that temp. when starting your d/w first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your d/w this insures your unit fills with hot water and not cold

SOURCE: Faulty Dishwasher

1st 2 lights flashing is fault F03 meaning The drain pump has been energised for 4 minutes, but the pressure switch has not reset to the empty position.
The drain pump is fed from the wash pump; therefore an open circuit wash pump could stop the drain pump from working.
A jammed drain pump or blockage in the outlet hose or plumbing.
A blocked pressure chamber or pressure switch air tube.
A faulty pressure switch.
Check wiring to pump and module connections.
If all the above are OK, replace the module.

We have a whirlpool ADG 7800 dishwasher ,getting a beeping sound and start button flashes 12 times? Any help


Hi
.
Ok try this and see what happens.
.
Hold the start button again till it beeps
Then select the first cycle on the left which should be the rinse cycle
Then turn the dishwasher off
Then press and hold the start button and with this held in turn the dishwasher on.
Once the start light is flashing let go
Now press the start button once and close the door.
.
Now it will run a 12 minute test cycle. If it goes wrong it will drain the water out and beep. So open the door and count the number of flashes from the start light inbetween the pause and let me know.
.
Regards

I can't get the control panel to reset. The wash cycle light comes on but it just beeps and the dishwasher won't start. I press the start button and it stops beeping for a minute but it still...


II might need the actual model number. However, you can go to page 9 on this manual and check if the flashing options can fix the problem. I am assuming you have already tried to turn the power off and back on.

The ohter thing to try is the reset sequence. Within 6-7 secs press High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry. All lights should light up, press Start button to exit.

I have a Bosch dishwasher model # shx4ap05uc/06 and I want to silence the alarm for when it is done. It goes off every 10 minutes until you open the door


Hi,

Yes, you can switch the cycle completion signal off (or raise/lower the volume)

1. Switch the dishwasher off using the ON/OFF button
2. Open the door
3. Switch the dishwasher on again. (One of the wash cycle LEDs will flash.)
4. Hold the > button in. Continue holding it and press and release the Start/Reset button once, then release the > button.

"Clean" and one other LED should now be flashing. This indicates that the dishwasher is in the options/settings mode. If they are not flashing, start over at step 1.

5. Press > repeatedly, until the LEDs for "Clean", "Sanitized" and "Rinse Agent" are all flashing.
6. Press repeatedly until none of the LEDs are flashing.

The number of flashing LEDs indicate the volume setting . . .

0 = Silent
1 = Volume level 1
2 = Volume level 2
3 = Volume level 3

7. Press the Start/Reset button once to save the setting and exit the options mode
8. Close the door
9. Switch the dishwasher off.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric
