My GE quietpower 3 dishwasher won't start. Looks as though there is no power to it. It is on its own circuit breaker.

HI The door of the dryer is sealed with one or more gaskets to keep the hot air in the dryer from escaping and prevent the cool air in the laundry area from being sucked into the dryer. A deteriorated or damaged gasket greatly lowers the efficiency of the dryer. To check the gasket, hold a sheet of tissue paper near the rim of the door while the machine is running. If the door leaks, the paper will flutter. If the gasket or seal leaks, looks worn or warped, has chunks of material missing, or feels hard and nonresilient, it should be replaced with a new gasket of the same type.

SOURCE: GE 2200 Dishwasher-no power at all, circuit breakers are fine, switch works

with your volt/ohm meter check for power going to the dishwasher. the power supply is located under the kick panel. the power wire may be shorted out due to poor installation. if you are not comfortable testing power, I would advise calling a professional. If no power is found at the power box (this has a power cord or electrical wire going to it) the problem lies within your house electric. if 120 volts is present, check for power @ the door switch. aftrer that you just need to follow the power wire and see where it stops
If this is a newly built house and new to you the builder may have put a light switch above your counter ,the one you didn't think went to anything, check for that! good luck with it!

HI. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer or Control Board
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

SOURCE: GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher

in the front left bottom of the tub is a float switch; it sometimes is under a cover with a screw securing it it looks like a big round ball shaped piece of plastic and on the bottom of this float there's a pin going down a hole in the tub (the float pin sits on the switch and, water lifting up and down on the float moves the switch: listen for a distinct "click" as you move the float up and, down
you see; the float rises as the water fills the dishwasher tub closing the float switch and, signaling the washer to start cleaning the dishes
some times dirt prevents movement of the float but,waiting usually displaces the dirt/soap etc. just enough to make it work again until the float pin gets encrusted again the cure is to clean the float pin

Remove them and check that they don't need cleaning. The top ones usually move with the power of the water going through them. If they are blocked the water can't get through and they can't turn.

My ge quiet power 3 dishwasher will not start, the normal wash and dry lights come on initially but then go off. Still will not work. Any ideas?


I have the same problem. If I turn the circuit breaker off (for 30 seconds) then turn it back on, the lights will light up, but the controls don't work. After several minutes, the lights go out again.

My GE Quietpower 3 has blinking lights, goes through a short cycle and shuts off. How can I either reset or fix? I've already flipped the breakers.


To re- set can take up to 90 second's depending on the cycle, the door has to remain locked or it will not re-set. Our's had not been installed correctly, it had to be closed very hard to get it to lock, it was doing the same thing as your's. Hope this help's. That beeping is annpying.

GE Triton not working


Jitterbugclu-
I may have the solution. Husband just turned off power to dishwasher via circuit breaker. Waited around 30 minutes.
Restored power and Triton came back with normal lights.
I just ran a cycle and all was well. Hope this helps you.
My fingers are crossed because I don't know what happened but did read on another site that this should be the first thing you try before expen$ive repairman.
Reply back if it works!

Model number is on a sticker on the left wall of the dishwasher, just behind the door, about mid tub level. Post your full model number and I'll list your part number(s) for you.
