This model comes with two types of doors. One with a single panel with integrated control on top or a two part door with control unit in front. The handle varies.
If you have a single door panel with handle bar across from right to left then you need to carefully unscrew the back panel screws and free up the front panel. the handle is screwed to the front panel from inside. Once you tighten carefully put the back door panel in and tighten. Take photos along the way to make sure you get back where you started. Also unplug dishwasher before working on it.
If you have a two part door with front control then handle and access to it is different. See diagram on this website for blow up of the panel and location of handle (part 713).
The front door panel usually removes with 2 screws located on the inside of the door frame. However, if you are just looking to give your dishwasher a new look, you may be able to avoid the hassle of removing the front door by going to www.applianceart.com

Remove the bottom toekick panel from the front of the dishwasher. Look just inside and you will see spring mounting holes on the bottom support frame. The spring goes from a hole to the hole in the lower door hinge. If I had a model number I could be more specific.
It depends on your dishwasher. Some don't have "panels " on the front. There are dishwashers that have a frame around the front face of the door. If you have one of those, you unscrew the 2 screws on the side of the door and one side of the frame will come off allowing you to take the panel out and replace it. If your front door is one solid piece that wraps around the sides, you will have a much more difficult, and expensive, trying to find the exact replacement. To help save you time and money, go to www.applianceart.com, they have many options that go over your existing panel, or panel replacements depending on the dishwasher you have. They even have stainless options as well
Sounds like one of the doors springs is broken or has come detached from the dishwasher housing frame. If you have a plain dishwasher door, ie one that does not have a wood panel matching your cabinets, and the spring(s) are broken, new springs cost about $20. If you have wood panel on the dishwasher door, then you may need heavy duty replacement spring at about $22.
Although this post is old, I will help anyone else that is searching for the answer. I too had this problem but after looking at the schematics for this dishwasher, I could see where the problem was.
First, open the door and remove the eight screws that hold the inside cover to the front door on. BE CAREFUL. There are wires attached from the front panel of the door to the inside panel for the soap dispenser.
Close the inside panel by slowly raising it up into its closed position and locking into place.
Looking at the front panel from the inside, there is a black box at the top with a white PLASTIC PIN. This pin activates the "CLOSED" signal to the control unit.
Push and HOLD the white pin DOWN until the system resets.
If this does not work, you may need a new unit which runs about $6.
After reseting the system, raise the front panel slightly and press and hold RESET/START for 5-6 secs.
Now, with a second person holding the inner liner against the machine tightly, I started a cycle and it worked fine.
Unlock the inner panel and slowly lower back down and replace the 8 screws.
It's really very simple 10 min fix. the reason this happens is due to the flawed design of the SWITCH PIN, which is not rigid enough. It tends to move side to side and become stuck.
A better quality PIN assembly would solve this issue for GE forever.
Your question is: Your son accidentally put dishwashing soap (for dishwashers) in the area where the jetdry stuff goes? Can this be corrected?
Yes, but I don't recomend this to the average homeowner because it requires taking the door apart. You might consider the Repair Directory for a repairman. You could just use the d/w, I don't think it will hurt anything and it will quickly flush itself out.
