Question about GE 24 in. Profile PDW9200J Built-in Dishwasher

Constant alarm sound coming DW, DW has no power and lights.(dead)

Hello. I was doing some wireing in my house and drilled through the electrical wire going to my DW. It instantly tripped the breaker. I have since repaired the power wire going to my dishwasher and now it will not work when I turn on the breaker. All it does is sound an alarm sound, but DW has no power at all. The alarm is attached to the control assembly curcuit board. I am thinking that it blew up the board, but after removing it,I see no sighns of burns anywhere. Do you think that I will need a new control assembly board? or would it be somthing else?
Oh yes, it is a GE Profile model #PDW9280j00ss.

Thanks, Paul

    Thank you

    findmeifucan For your reply, (check thermal fuse), I just need to know were that is. I can easily check a fuse but I see no fuse anywhere? I have checks the part break drown list for this DW and find no thermal fuse. Any suggetions?

    Thankyou, Paul

    Ronnieh49 about the advice about installing a new circuit board (controll panel). This is what I was originally was going to do, I have heard others say they tried installing a control panel and that did not fix the problem. Throwing parts at it can get costly. When I drill through the power wire going to the dishwasher I completely broke the black positive wire and I am sure it shorted with the ground bare wire. All I am looking for is someone who has encountered this problem and what part they needed. Someone out there has this experience and knowledge.

An high pitched sound can be caused by a beep stuck on motherboard, or an high frequency signal generated by a bad capacitor on control board.

If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house
Door switch
Wiring
Timer or selector switch
Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

More than likely you will have to order a new board. you shorted something out on it when you drilled through the wiresw...you have not see any burn spots on the board but because or the break in power you may have short circuited the entire board,

Your dishwasher has a thermal fuse that feeds voltage to the control board.
The thermal fuse is a safety device & other components will need to be checked to determine the cause of failure.
This will require accessing the control board & using a meter to make some voltage checks.
The thermal fuse is a safety device that will prevent the unit from overheating in case of a harness failure

    Sorry for late response

    The thermal fuse is in between the power supply box & the control
    board. The thermal fuse is located in the console mounted to the top of
    the control board.

    I will just find whether there is any picture available demonstrating the removal of fuse and checking it and i will post it if i get one for your model .

    This is in response to your fourth comment

    You will need to have 3 wires there
    1 black hot,
    1 white neutral and
    1
    bare copper or green ground wire -
    dishwashers must be grounded

    Remove the cover from the junction box and run the wires through the
    knockout into the box. Connect the black wire to black wire, using the
    needle-nose pliers to twist the pair together, and then tighten a wire
    nut over them. Do the same thing to the white wires. The green or bare
    ground wire gets tightened to the green ground screw inside the box.
    Wrap electrical tape around the wires where the wire meets the wire
    nut. Replace the junction box cover.

Hello Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your post!

I see that your question is listed under Frigidaire refrigerator (FPRH19D7LF) and that the alarm is sounding. First, did your refrigerator previously experience a power loss? If the temperature of food rises to an unsafe level, the buzzer will sound and the red light, if equipped, will also glow. First, deactivate the alarm to your refrigerator by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your refrigerator. After deactivating the alarm and your refrigerator has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own. If the red light/alarm continues to stay on, your refrigerator may possibly have a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or a wiring harness. If this is the case, I would recommend connecting with an experienced technician to determine the underlying cause. Best!

My dishwasher (Model # FDB520RHB0) is not quite 2 years old. We had the water pump replaced a few months ago because it had been making a grinding noise. Then we tried to run it a few days ago and it...


Did you check the outlet with a voltmeter? If you did and have 120Volts then it sounds like your latch switch could be defective which would kill the power to the unit.

But remember that in most houses that the outlet under the sink is wired for a garbage disposal where the top outlet is controled by a switch and the bottom one is wired for the dishwasher.

Unable to install. Does it have an electric hookup because it did not come with an electric cord.


Hi, You have to take the cord off of your old dw and install on the new. In the right front corner of your new dw is a metal box. Take the cover off and install your cord using wire nuts. This should get you going. Hope this helps.

Moved Kenmore dishwasher to new house. Installed it. It will not start. Is there a reset switch? Model 587-1541590. Electrical installation checked OK. Water connection checked OK. Is there something I...


You say "electrical installation checked OK"...is the machine hard wired into a junction box or does it plug into an outlet?

If in a wall socket the new house circut may be on a wall switch which is currently off. If it is plugged into a GFI outlet it may have tripped, Find another power source to wire to, GFI plugs and dishmachines just don't get along, Learned that some time ago!

There may be an issue with your door safety switch on the unit.

Check for voltage where the house wires are wire capped in the machine if hard wired, sometimes twisting those can cause issues.

I doubt your machine has a reset switch but many hobart units have on on the motors.

It really sounds like you have a voltage issue.

HOW TO REPLACE HEATING ELEMENT


Turn off the electric panel breaker that powers the unit! Check to make certain it is off before proceeding.

You will need to disconnect the Dishwasher (DW) from the electric, water and drain lines and remove it from under the counter in order to be able to access the underside of the DW. There you will find two (2) wires connected to the heating element along with a couple of fasteners that hold it in place. Also check inside the DW for any hold down clamps, etc. on the heating element there.

Once you have removed the connectors and mounting screws, you can then remove the element from the inside of the DW. You will need to "pop" out the grommets that the element passes through from the inside to the underside of the DW, as these keep water from leaking past the elements. Just remove and save those grommets and reinstall them onto the new element and slip it back inside the DW and through the holes in the floor of the unit. Reconnect the wires and re-fasten the screws or clamps that hold the element in place and reinstall the DW back under the counter, reconnecting the water and drain lines and the electric power.

This is a fairly simple and money saving repair for the DIY'er and well worth the time it will take you to perform the replacement. Good luck and hope this helps. Here's a link to the versions of your DW that will show you what it looks like for the parts and placement for your specific unit as I couldn't locate an exact match without the rest of the model number series. Just select yours and look at the diagrams to find the heating element on the inside of the wash tub.

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!

LG LDS5811BB Dishwasher


Some of the LG LDS5811 had problems with the wiring harness in the door panel. This is nothing to mess with unless you have disconnected the DW from power.
You can open the door panel by removing the screws around the inside edge of the DW. Or, better yet, firmly but politely contact LG service and tell them you are aware of LDS5811 dishwashers having these symptoms being caused by _melting_ wires in inside the door panel. This is true and even if the DW is out of warranty, LG should fix this problem at no cost to you.
Good Luck!

ASKO D1706


look at the pwr supply box on the dw check for a short to ground in the main pwr wires, otherwise the only field in the dw to trip to breaker is a mtr dead shorted to ground. if that is the case you may want to by a new dw because not to many techs enjoy working on ASKO PRODUCTS or are they certified to do so. so it maybe difficult to get a service company to even look at it and if they do and the mtr is the issue you will be looking at a expensive repair. good luck
