    or may be the problem is caused by a stuck key on the touchpanel console.
    If the control board detects that a key is stuck in the “mashed-in” position, then the dishwasher will suspend operation and maddeningly flash the light for that key until the condition is fixed. If a key without a light is stuck or multiple keys are stuck, the control will flash the light.
    The cure is to replace the touchpanel console.

    else ther may be an indication that the keypad has a stuck button. This usually means that the keypad will need to be replaced. I would recommend replacing the keypad.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls remove the bottom/lick panel. Normally there is a tech sheet inside the details error codes/messages and user action to correct. Additionally there would be a wiring diagram should further diagnosis be required.

Apparently, most designs such as your particular model uses two (2) switches. Both are activated by a single tab/plunger of the door. Since the door latching assembly is generally plastic, they easily get out of alignment or become loose. Pls check for such possibility.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    sorry that should read as bottom/kick panel.

    Incidentally, after aligning/checking the 2 switches and generally making sure that both switches are functioning properly, pls press and hold RESET/START button till the unit re-initializes.

    Have you tried unplugging from the mains for an extended period of time?

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 gsd422ox6BB Dish washer that all it does is flash the reset light.


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.
Check parts on this site.

My GE quiet power 1 dishwasher has flashing lights and won't stop cycling, what do i do?


I have had this problem with this dishwasher in my rented apartment occasionally since I moved in. It would usually reset itself if I let it sit a while, but not today. Today all it would do is flash and beep and I finally just unplugged it. I stumbled across this page and read the post by Dyons above and it worked. Close the door, let it grind away and within 2 minutes it will reset itself. Thanks, Dyons!!!

GE Dishwasher Quiet Power III Dishwasher leaking


The average life of dishwashers is 7-10 ten years so it might just be dying but try this. If the leak is a small one that seems to always be near the left side of the dishwasher put a cup of white vinager in the upper rack and run the unit on pots & pans or heavy duty. This is caused by a build up of detergent that make the unit oversuds, when the suds turn back into water it leaks out the left front corner. The amount of water is not huge, one towel to clean up. If the leak is larger it could be the pump is leaking and you can order a new one with your model # from marcone.com

GE Profile PDW7880G00SS Dishwasher will not Start


Re: My dishwasher start light flashes and the timer display is blank.

That is a fault condition, if the display is blank it is probably a faulty control board.

Unplug the appliace from main, or trip circuit braker to cut power for ten minutes.

If display is still blank on startup, then replace the timer control assembly.
