My GE dishwasher has no power. It's connected to a wall power switch in the kitchen. I've tried flipping the circuit beaker and cutting the power switch off an on. We have not had any recent power outages in the house.

To eliminate a dishwasher problem, run a heavy 3 pronged extension cord from a known working outlet to the dishwasher and plug the dishwasher into the cord. If you still have no power (dishwasher is not showing any signs of life) then it is a dishwasher problem (circuit board, bad connection from dishwasher cord to dishwasher, etc).
If the dishwasher actually shows signs of life, then you may have a tripped breaker. Check the breaker to make sure it is on and that the tab is not either in the center or the off position. Also, try moving the dishwasher cord's plug from the outlet it is currently in to another outlet in the under sink area. There is a chance that the plug got switched from the normal outlet to the outlet that controls the garbage disposal, that outlet should only be hot when the disposal wall switch is flipped to the on position.
Flashing reset light could mean the flood switch is turned on. There could be water in the motor compartment of the dishwasher. To get this water out, you will need to take the dishwasher out from the kitchen bench and turn it side to side a few times so that water comes out on the floor. Make sure the power mains connection is taken out.
If this does not help then the flood switch itself might be faulty.

Do not open the dishwasher until the cycle completes. A green indicator
light on the front of a Maytag dishwasher will let you know the cycle
has completed. If you open the dishwasher before the cycle is over,
close the door and press "Start/Resume."
Remove the knockout plug from the disposer inlet if the dishwasher is
connected to a food disposer. Place the tip of a screwdriver along the
edge of the knockout plug, which is on the side of the disposer. Tap
against the head of the screwdriver with a hammer until the plug comes
Inspect the drain hose for kinks. Make sure it is not bent or pinched in a way that would impede the flow of water through it.
Use your hands to clean food from the drain in the dishwasher. A
buildup of food can block the drain and not allow water to freely flow
from the inside of the dishwasher.
Open your breaker box and check to see that the switch that controls
your kitchen appliances is flipped to the "on" position. A switch
flipped to "off" means your appliance has no electricity. The
dishwasher will not drain without power.
Hello bidness_67 please check inside of the sink cabinet look for a switch on the back wall. If there is one flip it. Many new building electrical codes require a switchto turn off power to the dishwasher. Sometimes when putting items in the cabinet the switch is hit unknowingly. If there is no switch check outlets (the GFCI ones)and press the reset then check the dishwasher.if not those two items check breaker box for a tripped breaker.
Unplugthe power cord to your dishwasher. You can do this by manually removing thedishwasher from the wall and unplugging it, or you can flip the power switch toyour kitchen at the circuit breaker (although you will need light to drain thedishwasher hose). 2 Put on your gloves,and, using your screwdriver, unscrew the screws from the kick plate of yourdishwasher. The kick plate is the panel just below the door of your dishwasher.3 Place your bucket on the floor in front of the dishwasher. 4 Unhook the drainhose by pinching the ends of the clamp and sliding it down the hose. Remove theother end from the pump. There will be two hoses in your dishwasher. The drain hoseis the one that leads from the pump to the underneath of your kitchen sink. 5 Pointthe hose into your bucket to drain any debris. Twist and scrunch the hose tohelp remove the waste. 6 Test the hose by running water through it, and thenreattach your hose in the same manner in which you detached it from yourdishwasher.

1. No power to the dishwasher
Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a
tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for
power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher
(inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is
the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.
