Question about GE 24 in. Profile PDW8680JSS Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

I have a GE PDW8680 dishwasher. 5 1/2 years old.

I have a GE PDW8680 dishwasher. 5 1/2 years old. The heated dry buttin doesn;t light anymore and heated dry doesn't work. The button is dead. I ordered a new part (901) How do you install this? I figure if this doesn;t work, I'll try the control module. By then, I'm $225 into this, still cheaper than having someone come to the house with parts.

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.

You have the control lock activated. Press and hold the heated dry pad for 5 seconds and it should unlock it

SOURCE: GE Profile Dishwasher (5 years old); Leaving residue on dishes

In my case the counter mounted breather for the drain tube was being restricted ... finally to the point it would not drain the tub at all. I disassembled the above counter drain assembly and cleaned it out as it wass completely blocked and things work very well again. I would suggest this foirst as it is an easy task and is done 'above the counter'.
I then ran 2 cups of CLR with wash cycle ... no dishes to clean out the rest of the washer as on dissaembly of the internals to diagnose they were and very scummed up with a hard white crusty substance that was completely blocking some of the drain sump performations.

hello. thanks for choosing fixya. honestly I do recommend that you get a new one. By the time you get your current one repaired you will have almost as much money in it as a new one and you will miss out on lots of things the new ones offer now such as: much more efficient use of power, much more efficient use of water, much quieter. and a much better wash. Regards, J.

The clean light keeps flashing clean and we can't start it. Plus it doesn't get any of the dishes clean and it's only 3 hrs old


Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

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.

3 year old GE dishwasher dead!


Buy a different brand of washing machine. I suggest a front loading one because they use so little water and they are cost effective and actually pay for themselves.
