Smart Dispense on GE Dishwasher

I no longer want to use the Smart Dispense on my GE Dishwaher (I used it in the past). How do I get the light to go off (the smart dispense light that says to add detergent) without keeping it filled. I have decided to no longer use the smart dispense, but add detergent tablets which I find work better.

Thanks!

Press the ADDED HEAT pad 5 times within 3 seconds. You will hear 3 beeps; then the light will go off. You can turn the feature back on again by repeating.

What can I use to plug the dishwasher drain connection I no longer need?


Push a cork into the hole.
Garbage disposal doesn't have a lot of pressure pushing water out dishwaher tube until full sink of water is drained.
You might put gorilla glue or caulk on the cork to keep it in place.

Purging ge profile smart dispense dishwasher


How to Purge Incorrect Liquid Detergent from the Bulk Dispenser

The purge routine operates the bulk dispenser pump continuously to drain the bulk dispenser tank when an incorrect liquid was poured in the tank. The process consists of setting up the dishwasher to run the purge mode, running the purge mode and then cleaning up the purged detergent.

Follow these steps carefully to have a successful purge run.

For Top Control Models:
  1. Make sure Pre-wash, Added Heat and Heated Dry LEDs are off.
  2. Press Heated Dry and Down Arrow buttons together for 3 seconds. All LEDs will illuminate.
  3. Press Added Heat and Up Arrow buttons together for 3 seconds. The Anti-bacteria LED will illuminate
  4. Press Start button one time
  5. Select Normal and make sure Pre-wash, Added Heat and Heated Dry LEDs are off.
  6. Press Start button one more time and dishwasher will run a complete cycle without the main motor running. Cycle is complete when the Clean light illuminates. This should take approximately 60 minutes.
  7. Open door and wipe up excess detergent from the door and tub
  8. Flush remaining detergent off by pouring water on the door and tub where there is detergent residue.
  9. Remove SmartDispenser cap and fill tank with water and then replace cap.
  10. Repeat Steps 1 through 9 one time.
  11. Then, repeat Steps 1 through 6. When the Clean LED illuminates, the system is purged and ready to be refilled with the correct detergent.
Front Mount Controls (same as above except for the changes in the two below steps):

2. Press Heated Dry and Cookware together for 3 seconds. All LEDs illuminate.

3. Press Added Heat and Cookware together for 3 seconds. The Anti-bacterial LED illuminates.

No water


GE's are bad for the water supply line freezing inside the freezer door. Also,a clogged water filter will cause the same thing. I have used a hairdryer in the past to unthaw my water dispense line.Good Luck!!

Smart dispense detergent dispenser


There are two different types of dishwasher detergent types, bleach based and enzyme based.  The owner's manual states that if the two are ever mixed that the mixture will congeal, clogging the dispenser.
I don't know exactly how to safely remove the detergent that is in there, perhaps a wet/dry vaccuum.  There is likely a service mode for the dishwasher if it has electronic buttons, in the service mode you could activate the pump that dispenses the detergent.  Use caution, the thicker the clog, the harder the pump has to work and it may fail.  Hope this helps.

How do I make sure the dispenser is completly empty?


Just use the manual dispense. The smart dispenser is horrible. You will never get it empty AND you will have congealed soap in the dispenser for ever.
