Hi lynnland,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: no power, not working

First check breaker (fuzes), if breaker is good then check the connection at the d/w. It's under the d/w behind the kick plate on right or center under a cover box. 9 times out of 10 you'll find a loose, broken or burnt connection there. That done, it's time to call in warranty repair. If beyond warranty you might consider utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repairman. If the d/w has a few years on it perhaps it is time to compare the cost of repair verses replacement.

Feel free contact me again!

GE Dishwasher stopped working after power surge

If you can confirm that the dishwasher is getting power, then there is a very good chance the control board is bad.

Possible that the power supply unit or the main program controller unit has failed. Hence the drain pump has stoped working. You must remove the power control/program controller unit to confirm.

Our dishwasher has not been working since a power outage.

Due to power fluctuation the programme would have got corrupted.

Generally if switched off and started after few minutes, the machine should work.

If you notice the power light ON & no action, most probably the micro-controller IC would have gone faulty. You have to replace the PCB & check.

If no light ON check the internal fuse and proceed. If works you are lucky. Otherwise the first message above.

It's not getting any power to it, but the outlets are working.

most dish washers do not come prewired for power connection. customer or installer provides "pigtail" the part you plug in. Unplug unit, remove kick panel,, follow pigtail to connection bod and remove cover. cut off wire nuts, restrip wires and install new wire nuts

hi there,

if the motor hums, that means you have power to the dishwasher and it's just the display that does not work.

if the motor is not running, it's definitely the control board.

most dishwashers in Canada are wired into the electrical circuit in the house, so if the power goes out, it take the dishwasher with it.

Dishwasher isn't draining

It could be the pump, but not only. Check first that you don't have any clog in the drain line. If drain line is clean, open machine's rear panel and : - Look if the pump works. If it doesn't work check that pump get power (with multi-meter). In case it get power (and does't work), it should be replaced. - In case the pump works - The machine has a drain valve with an electric solenoid (the drain pipe connected to it). When it get power the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain line. Test that it get power. In case it get power and dosen't work - You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new valve. Good luck !
