GE Profile dishwasher LEDs do not light up.

The LEDs on my dishwasher do not light up when the door is closed. The Start/reset LED flashes when the door is open. However, once it is closed, nothing is displayed.

    The control panel light do not light up when the door is closed. I've disconnected the power in hopes of resetting the controls. "no joy" Is there a fuse that may need replacing? Is there something other than having a tech replace the mother board?

How do I reset the settings on my GE dishwasher?

Best way I have found is to disconnect power (turn off breaker for 30 sec), open the door, turn on and within 60 seconds press ON/OFF and SELECT buttons at the same time (if done correctly, all LEDs flash together), then close door. This enters the service mode (which reset mine with no issues).

What does error code E7 indicate on a bush dishwasher

E7 The appliance is waiting for a signal from a flow meter. However this appliance is not fitted with a flow meter. See below for details on how to cure this fault.

For an E7 fault the PCB has to be reset:
1. With the door open, turn the appliance ‘On’
2. Within 3 secs, push the program selection button ‘P’ 4 times

The test program has been selected if ‘Soak’ and ‘Strong’ LEDs are flashing. (This combination represents the test program for appliances that have a flow meter.

1. If the above LEDs do not flash after carrying out the above procedure, then switch appliance ‘Off’ and repeat process again

Once the above test has been activated and the LEDs are illuminated then:

2. Push the program selection button ‘P’ once to select the version “without flow meter”
bullet Check that the ‘Soak’ LED is ‘Off’ and the ‘Strong’ LED is ‘Flashing’

To complete the procedure:

1. Ensure appliance is switched ‘Off’
2. Wait for approx. 10 to 15 secs
3. Switch the appliance back ‘On’
4. Select the SOAK program to test

The start light is flashing on my GE dishwasher?

What's the model number? How old is this dishwasher? The new GE dishwashers (less than 3 years old) have a weakness in the door switch/latch assembly, and that would cause the light to flash - it wants you to press Start and close the door, but it's not recognizing that the door is closed.

I have a Bosch dishwasher model # shx4ap05uc/06 and I want to silence the alarm for when it is done. It goes off every 10 minutes until you open the door


Yes, you can switch the cycle completion signal off (or raise/lower the volume)

1. Switch the dishwasher off using the ON/OFF button
2. Open the door
3. Switch the dishwasher on again. (One of the wash cycle LEDs will flash.)
4. Hold the > button in. Continue holding it and press and release the Start/Reset button once, then release the > button.

"Clean" and one other LED should now be flashing. This indicates that the dishwasher is in the options/settings mode. If they are not flashing, start over at step 1.

5. Press > repeatedly, until the LEDs for "Clean", "Sanitized" and "Rinse Agent" are all flashing.
6. Press repeatedly until none of the LEDs are flashing.

The number of flashing LEDs indicate the volume setting . . .

0 = Silent
1 = Volume level 1
2 = Volume level 2
3 = Volume level 3

7. Press the Start/Reset button once to save the setting and exit the options mode
8. Close the door
9. Switch the dishwasher off.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
