Dishwasher problem Model number GSD2200LO1

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.

How do I restart my double flashing dishwasher?


What kind of dishwasher are you talking about? What's the model number, how old is it? This information is important as not all dishwashers work and operate the same. I need more information to assist you.

I cannot find the model number but need to know where reset button is?

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

The dishwasher is displaying 5H in the time panel is there any way that could happen by pushing the wrong button and is there any way to make it go away

It would help to know the model number to determine the features of your dishwasher. The only guess I can make is that someone pushed the "delay" button and you are now set for a 5 hour delay for starting the dishwasher. Pressing the Delay button a few more times should bring it back to Zero delay.

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the buttons don't work on the control panel the entire touchpad and control panel assembly may need to be replaced. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

Enter your model number to see parts for your dishwasher.

If the buttons don't work on the control panel, the dishwasher touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the dishwasher display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.

Main Control Board

The dishwasher has a main control board which regulates nearly every function in the dishwasher. If the control panel buttons don't work, and other causes have been ruled out, the main control board might need to be replaced.

It seems when I pushe button to start nothing

Some fault in the dishwasher is causing it to believe the door is not locked.

I would check the door lock.

check this youtube video out for the location of the door switch.

(quality of video may not be the best but gives an idea of its location).

If you can give me the exact model number I can find out more details of the problem you are having.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Energy Star blinking lights.

Hmmm...don't know why this worked, but it did. When the lights were flashing when I tried to start my Frigidaire dishwasher model#FDB1500LF, nothing would happen...just blinking lights, so I went to the house electrical panel, found the switch for the dishwasher, turned off & on again, and now the dishwasher works.
Go figure.
