Ge triton xl dishwasher

All of the dishwasher lights are on. I press start and the machine locks, but never actually begins the cycle. I can't unlock or open the door for the Triton XL builit in dishwasher? Anyone have this problem?

    I can not find the model as I can't open the door. The best I can determine is that it is a Triton XL dishwasher. It is either a GSD6900 Series or a PDW7000 series.

    It's funny that you suggest that because that is exactly what I ended up doing after getting frustrated and I manually opened the door with a butter knife. It is model number GSD6960N10SS and there is a plastic white piece that the handle presses on. When I look into the door from the top I see a blue plastic piece, that seems to be loose and moving around. The handle appears to work now if you do it slowly, but I think the handle mechanism will need to be replaced. But at least now I know how to get in if needed.

    All the lights are on, but I can not select the options that I need. I end up re-setting the power switch on the fuse breaker. That's so frustrating as I am disabled & cannot climb up or down steps. HELP

    Interesting... there is no electrical locking mechanism on the machine that would cause it to lock (like a front loading clothes washer has for instance). My best guess is that there is an off-white colored plastic piece that fits above the door handle/release that may have broken on one end. I hate to say it but I think you going to have to try to force the door open so you can get the model number or at least take the door apart. If it is a GE Profile it would be the PDW a regular GE would be the GSD. See if you can push up on the latch release from the front with the door closed at the end of the door handle release. If you can see up there you are looking for an off-white plastic piece to push up on with a small long screw driver.

My GE Triton XL is not working. When you push start the "sensing" and "washing" lights come on, and it fills with water. The element heats the water, but then the cycle seems to end. ...

Hi Michael,

It seems one of the components aren't doing its part in continuing the cycle. Does your machine physically pump out water?

Please confirm for me, then I will reply.

I don't know if this will help you, but, you might find where the electrical plug is plugged in - mine is under the sink- and unplug it, wait 10 long seconds and plug it back in. See if that resets the machine. Can't think of anything else you could try, sorry. Hope that resets it. Best of luck

Try placing a packet in the bottom of the DW and then start a wash cycle ( use the energy efficient cycle that does not use the heater to dry the dishes..).. if it is not disolved at the end of the cycle then your water temp may not be hot enough..Hope that helps..

My Triton XL soap dispenser still has a clump of soap after the cycle has finished. My glasses are left with a cloudy film, and my silverware is left marked with film on it. I have cut down on the amount of detergent, and have not overfilled. I have also tried using white vinegar as the manual states. Any suggestions? Thank you

One answer is NEVER buy another GE product!!! I bought all GE Profile appliances when I redecorated my kitchen. Have had issues with every single piece. Refrigerator has been replaced twice (on 3rd one). Triton XL dishwasher will not reset...good luck getting it back to normal wash if you change a cycle...for example to run just a rinse. It is almost impossible to get it to reset. And don't get me started on the over the stove microwave. Never have been able to use the lights. Every time from day one I turn them on, the bulbs blow and the cover shatters. Absolutely no support from GE!!!
