Question about GE Dishwashers

Open Question

PDW880L00SS. GE dishwasher - normal wash start pushed. Dishwasher sounds like it turns on, a few minutes later it’s off, no lights on, soap box inside not open. We’ve tried resetting, on and off power switch, it just seems to have lost its mind. How can we open the control board to clean? Or is there a reset sequence?

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher LIghts are blinking....

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.

SOURCE: blinking lights on control panel

Same issue, machine is about 30 days past waranty. Door switch broke, but of course they (GE repair) do not fix the switch, you have to order the Escutcheon Body (whole panel) to fix ~$350 total.

SOURCE: Maytag Dishwasher model # MDB5130AWW

I had a similar issue with my MDB5130AWW. The Wash was interupted and wouldn't come back on. Not knowing where to start I read some other solutions on this site and started by opening the bottom cover. Thats where I found a 4 page diagnostic / Electrical Schematic. Start with the Sales Demo mode of pressing the Rinse button 5 times within 5 seconds. I had to do it twice before the washer came "alive". I was estatic after reading about the $100 mainboard cost and maybe more for other parts. The document has other test and what different keypads mean when flashing. Thankfully I didn't have to go that far.

I suspect for either of these units that the timer control boards are bad.

disassemble front door to get to the latch. Check if the latch is properly in place, sometimes the metal cylinder that hold it in place, slips out of position.

Try pressing the "Start/Reset" pad hold it for 5 seconds to reset the dishwasher and wait 2 minutes. If the problem persists, reset (reboot) the dishwasher by turning off power to the unit at the house circuit breaker/fuse box for 30 seconds. Or if its pluged in below the sink like mine unplug and plug back in. Restore power and the dishwasher should function normally.

Dishwasher control light blinking


1 Press down the overfill protection float on the floor of the dishwasher's tub in the right, front corner near the door. If it cannot move up and down freely, the "clean" light will flash.
2 Make sure the dishwasher's water supply is turned on.
3 Look for suds on the inside of the dishwasher and wipe them off with a wet cloth. If the washer's sensor detects suds or foam, it may not run. Use the correct amount of dishwasher soap, not hand soap or detergent for washing dishes in the sink, to ensure suds and foam do not form. Also, make sure the cap on the rinse aid dispenser is secure--this will keep suds and foam from forming as well.
4 Close the dishwasher door. Push the "normal wash" button, then push the "heated dry" button. Push the "normal wash" button again, and push the "heated dry" button again.
5 Watch for all of the lights on your Kenmore dishwasher's panel to turn on and then turn off. The washer may start a new wash cycle at this point; if you do not want it to do so, press the "cancel" button. Otherwise, allow the dishwasher to run through this cycle.

GLD6500 Series Dishwasher -- soap dispenser has


Yes that's normal for that machine. The soap has to be washed out of the soap drawer by the top spray arm turning, and that's usually the problem - the arm isn't turning. Check both spray arms for blocked jets at the very end - remove blockages with a pin and water flow from tap. In the worst case, you may need a new spray arm - but they are usually cheap.
More points to remember - on a rapid 30 minute wash program only, if you are using wash tablets, don't put them in the soap drawer as there wont be enough time for them to dissolve. put the tabs in the cutlery basket. Also - a dishwasher is not a garbage disposal unit, and uneaten food must be scraped of plates before putting them in the dishwasher. Run a dishwasher cleaner through now and then, or do a full program wash with nothing in the machine to clean it out and to keep spray arms clear.

NORMAL Wash light is blinking and I can't CANCEL wash. GE Quiet Power II PROFILE dishwasher. Started a normal wash and a few minutes into it the NORMAL light started blinking and can't find a way to reset.


We had the same issue with ours...tried turning off at the breaker, still didn't reset. Contacted appliance repair who came in and unplugged it from underneath the sink, waited a few seconds and plugged it back...dishwasher reset and repairman charged trip charge and labor $65 BUT problem is resolved and we now know what to do in the future.

''clean'' light flashing (whirlpool Dishwasher GU2300XTLS1 model)


I had the same problem recently and a repair person came to my home to fix the dishwasher. He said he had to reset the control panel. He did this simply by making sure the soap dispenser door inside the washer was closed, then making sure the main dishwasher door was closed and locked. Then he quickly pushed the Heated Dry button and the Hight Temp wash button alternately. He said each button needed to be pushed twice within five seconds. After he did this all the lights on the control panel came on, then turned themselves off before the washer went in to a test cycle. This simple reset fixed the whole problem. Works great so far.

GE Triton not working


Jitterbugclu-
I may have the solution. Husband just turned off power to dishwasher via circuit breaker. Waited around 30 minutes.
Restored power and Triton came back with normal lights.
I just ran a cycle and all was well. Hope this helps you.
My fingers are crossed because I don't know what happened but did read on another site that this should be the first thing you try before expen$ive repairman.
Reply back if it works!

Dishwasher soap dispenser won't open during cycle


I had the same problem with my GE Adora. The dishes were getting cloudy and the soap dispenser would not open. Turns out the hard water deposits were causing the soap dispenser to stick shut. I purchased and used Dishwasher Magic which is a dishwasher cleaner designed to remove limescale, rust and buildup. I used as directed and now my dishes are sparkling and the soap dispenser pops right open.
