GE 3200 Portable Dishwasher

No power, no response, no settings work. Just used last night and now it is dead. Electrical socket has power so the electrical issue must be with the washer. I pulled off the cover and so far I see no immediate problems with connections. Any ideas? Thanks for your help in advance!

If the door switch is bad, it will override the system and shut it down. Also, check the plunger on the door that makes contact with the switch. If it is still there, access the switch and check the wires that are on the switch. Be sure they have good contact.
You could try pushing the switch with a pencil or small screwdriver and listen for a faint clicking sound, like a relay picking. This means that it is mechanically working, but a problem may still exist with the contacts inside the switch. Remove the two wires from the door switch (with machine unplugged) and place paper clip between the two leads. Tape securely. Plug the machine back in and see if it will start. If it does, this isolates the problem to the door switch and it needs to be replaced. Do not attempt to use the washer with the paper clip bridge.

What do I need to hook up my new portable dishwasher to my kitchen sink?


Go to a hardware store and get a Dishwasher Hook-up Kit. It will include a flexible hose along with several adapters. You dishwasher should come with a drain hose. You will also need a 3-wire "pigtail" (an extension cord with no receptacle or socket at the end). Your dishwasher whould have come with installation instructions, but seriously, if you've never done that before (or done similar work before), you should call a professional installer or at least and experienced handy-man.

We have a GE profile dishwasher. It worked fine last night. Tonight we loaded it and closed the door. Its like it dosent power up.


If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these: Power from the house Door switch Wiring Timer or selector switch Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker. Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it. Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors. Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to re

GE Profile Dishwasher PDW7300 Died on me!


Turns out the folks who installed it did a shoddy job of connecting the power. The power connections were not twisted on tightly enough, and after time, the continuous arcs of current between the loose connections burned through the wire nuts and finally separated the poorly twisted electrical wires. SOLUTION: Turned off power to the dishwasher, chopped off old, burned up wire ends, stripped some insulation off, twisted/spliced the electrical wires back toghether TIGHTLY and then tightly closed it all with quality wire-nuts. Power came right back on! :-) Yay! The only problem is, since the washer had been sitting/dead for a week or two, the lubricating water on the motor's ceramic bearing dried up, causing the motor to seize up. Had to replace the motor. :-( But everything is working fine now!

Electricity went out last night. when i get up this morning, it is making a high pitch squeeling noise and now none of the buttons work????? its a ge profile dishwasher


The electricity probably "surged" when the power came back on. It sounds lke the conrol board may have "fried". Call the repairman and get an estimate.

Power outtage blues


Hello daniedag,
Unfortunately, your dishwasher may have experienced a power surge when the power went off and dmaged some internal components or the control logic. There is no way of knowing the extent of your problem without a thorough diagnostics to it. It could be something as simple as a circuit borad component, stuck relay but this kind of repair is probably not something you would want to tackle yourself unless properly trained and with the proper test equipment. If you have homeowners insurance, it may cover the damage.. If not, then a service call is most likely required. Here is a link to the GE website for yopur dishwasher but your model is not PWD9200 and IS PDW9200 http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/Dispatcher

Hope this helps..
Regards,
Rick
