The keypad will have to be replaced. There is a short in there somewhere.

Better solution? Get yourself a nice new dishwasher if you've been having issues with this one..

You may have a key pad short or the button may be messed up. The key pad should be able to be replaced and cheaply. Also make sure the door is completely closed or it will not start.

Try unplugging the power cord for ten minutes.

Check the drain hose and the water supply at the back, ensure that the door is well closed.

    First unplug the power cord for ten minutes and try again, this will reset the control circuits.

    Check the drain hose, see that there is not obstruction.
    Check the water supply at the back, ensure that water is fowing inside the machine.
    Ensure that the door is well closed, and that the door sensor is not stuck, otherwise it will go automatically to cancel.

    It doesn't work at all

    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 replace the defective part, because neither of these
    can be repaired.

My door on the dish washer wont open


Hello,

IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at www.geappliances.com


The only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock.

IF the self clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven to cool down before the lock can unlock (safety feature).

Good luck and thanks for visiting.

Now after they get done spinning,push the cancel button.you should be able to hear the door unlock,remove the clothes.Now put Draino Max gel or Rooto-Routor gel in tub of machine and let it set for about 1-2hrs.Now star cycle on heavy-duty wash hot water,it may take a couple of times but it well clean your machine don't mix any othe soaps or bleach during this time. then rinse machine out again to get rid of gel.see if this work for you,are machine does the same thing,its because of dog or cat hair,or something was in a pocket like tissue,or strings from clothes.thanks

Error Message


Your owner's manual may give a troubleshooting guide for the error code your machine might give you. Is it possible you have locked out the control panel? I "think" the calypso has a control lockout, usually a start button or cancel button. If you press it in for 3-5 seconds, it can lock or unlock panel. If all else fails, try unplugging it and see it it will drain out the water.

sounds like central control unit problem, you can check for diagnostic mode operation by setting (door closed) drain/spin, no spin, pressing prewash 4 times in 5 secs pressing prewash again will advance through diagnostic cycle. replacing user interface may also be necessary

Dishwasher won't start


jamcdani Most likely the problem with your dish washer is bad key pad. It is not repairable and has to be replaced. Whirlpool does not sell it separate and you have to by the whole console assembly. The price range is between $95 and $115 (different colors) and it is not very complicated to replace it. I can help you with the complete step by step instructions and, if you provide the complete model number of your dish washer, I get the part number and the best price for you. Gendos post back...
