Question about GE Dishwashers
My brother broke my parents' dishwasher!!
He pushed the start button and at some poing found that it was set on the heated drying option. He pushed the energy saver button without first touching the clear/reset button. Now the dishwasher won't start. It makes no noise, nothing.
thanks for any help you can give.
No, he didn't do anything wrong. Swithching to energy saver setting only prevents power from going to the heating element during the drying portion of the cycle. I suspect that you have no power going to the dishwasher. Check the household breaker for the dishwasher. If that is not tripped (probably not) then your dishwasher power may be supplied through a GFI (ground fault interupter) protected outlet which has tripped. Look around the kitchen for GFI recepticles, as there may be several. Power may even be fed from a GFI from another room, such as a bathroom. Push the reset on all GFI recepticles you can find. You can purchase a small pen sized tester for under $20 which will show if a wire is carrying power without even thouching an actual wire. Pick one up at a hardware store to help see if power is reaching your dishwasher if you need more help.

Hello E Holliday, I appreciate your post!
I see that you need to find the model number for your Frigidaire dishwasher and a location of the reset button. There is not a specific reset button on your dishwasher. The best way to reset it is to disconnect power from it for at least ten minutes. You can locate the model number on the inside left hand wall of your dishwasher. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt
