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

5 Answers

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

    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.

Wiring diagram 06 impala


Read the alarm installation manual carefully and keep the support number handy if you have any questions as every alarm manufacturer uses different connection and mounting techniques. Open the hood and disconnect the positive battery cable. Connect the alarm power wire to the positive battery cable and run it to the driver side of the firewall.
Locate an open area in the engine bay and mount the siren, facing the engine to limit water exposure while driving. Run the siren wires to the driver side's of the firewall and feed all of the wires through the firewall and into the dash area of the Impala. Drill a small hole in the firewall if necessary, directly in front of the steering wheel.
Remove the lower dash panel if necessary and mount the shock sensor per the manufacturer's instructions. Locate the power lock relay if the car is so equipped and connect the alarm's power lock module.
Find the starter wire in the ignition harness and attach the start disable relay. Drill a small hole in the dash for the LED light and snap it into place.
Connect all of the wires to the alarm control module by plugging them into the module and secure it as far into the dash as possible with zip ties.
Reconnect the positive battery and test the alarm on the Impala. Adjust the sensitivity level as desired and secure any loose wires with zip ties.

Hello my key turns but wheni try to start my car nothing its completly dead then a security flashes because all the lights come on if i left it sit for like 4 hours it starts agian. i thought i was my...


? Who said it wasn't? The alarm installers? That I wouldn't doubt. It sounds like the starter kill switch is causing the problem and that is part of the alarm. Locate the alarm then on the alarm locate the power wire, this is most likely mounted on the firewall. The mail power wire to the alarm should have a fuse on it between the power source and the alarm itself that you can remove. Removing that fuse will deactivate the kill switch. Never trust the Alarm installers answer since they make money by not having to repair their work it is always going to be something else causing the problem according to them. Especially if they think it may end up being a warranty issue.

I cannot locate the valet switch to disengage the alarm.


    Preparing for the Installation
  1. Step 1 Gather materials. You will need scissors or a knife, crimps, solder material, solder gun, test light, drill, screw bit, screws, tie wrap, double-sided mounting tape and a voltmeter.
  2. Step 2 Read the installation manual that comes with the alarm. Make sure you understand what the instruction manual says. If you purchased the alarm from an automotive store, you can always ask them some basic questions to help you get started.
  3. Step 3 Call the tech support number for manufacturer of the alarm and tell the tech advisor what kind of car you have. Ask what kind of locking system your car uses and what color wire to connect to in order to interface the lock/unlock feature of your alarm,
  4. Step 4 Ask the advisor how to hook up the relay for the door lock feature, what color wire to connect to for the starter disable feature, and how to hook up the relay.
  5. Step 5 Ask how to set up the voltmeter to test the door lock wires.
  6. Step 6 Ask how to access the factory door triggers.
  7. Step 7 Determine where you intend to place the components by referring to the installation manual.
  8. The Installation
  9. Step 1 Mount the siren to a solid metal surface under the hood. Point the horn of the siren down toward the ground so that moisture cannot collect inside it. Drill a hole through a rubber grommet in the firewall of the car and feed the siren's wire through that hole into the passenger compartment of the car.
  10. Step 2 Connect the alarm's power wire directly to the car's battery. Feed the wire through the rubber grommet on the firewall and into the passenger compartment of the car.
  11. Step 3 Put a fuse on the power wire next to the battery. Check the installation manual for the fuse size.
  12. Step 4 Mount the shock sensor as described in the manual.
  13. Step 5 Drill a hole in the dash where you intend to place the LED status indicator. Feed the LED's wire through that hole and place the double-sided mounting tape to the back of the LED and place it over the hole in the dash.
  14. Step 6 Locate the wires that work the car's power door locks.
  15. Step 7 Connect the door-lock relay to the lock/unlock wires and connect the alarm wire to the relay in the manner described by the tech advisor.
  16. Step 8 Using the advice of the tech advisor, locate the wire that works the courtesy light if the alarm has current sensing.
  17. Step 9 Connect the current sensing line from the alarm to the courtesy light wire.
  18. Step 10 Locate the factory door triggers if the alarm does not have current or voltage sensing.
  19. Step 11 Connect the factory door trigger to the alarm.
  20. Step 12 Find the starter wire on the steering column some inches below the starter switch. Cut the line and connect the starter disable relay. Connect the starter disable wire from the alarm to the relay.
  21. Step 13 Mount the valet switch somewhere under the dash.
  22. Step 14 Connect all the wires to the proper inputs and outputs of the alarm module.
  23. Step 15 Mount the module to a sturdy surface under the dash using the drill, screw bit and screws.
  24. Step 16 Use the tie wraps to secure the wires of the harness and stuff it back under the dash.
  25. Step 17 Arm the alarm and test its performance.

I would like to know how to hardwire a CO alarm in my house. I would like to do this with 2 CO alarms. Can I pull power off a line going to an electrical switch? I am a woman and would appreciate...


Hello

I am a licensed electrician and I have three CO2 alarms that just plug into an outlet in whatever room it is in. If you insist on hard wiring them, then you should get power from a lighting circuit that you use all the time, so that incase the circuit goes out you would know it, because the lights would be off. You need to get power from the white and black wire where the switch is, that is the power coming into the circiut or box. You would need a tester to determine that, or look for atleast two white wires that are tied together. Those would be your neutral wire or where you connect the white wire from the 14/2 romex wire you would use to bring power to the CO2 alarm. There could also be two or more black wire in the box that you would connect the black wire to. This is why you need a tester to determine which wire is the one that is hot all the time. You don't want to connect to the wrong wire because then it would only work when the light was on. There will also be a bare copper wire that attaches to the metal box or if it is a plastic box you attach it to the other bare wires. I know it sounds like a lot, but it really is quite simple. You could get a licensed electrician to. Even go to Home Depot and get help. That is why if I were you I would buy the CO2 alarms that just plug into an outlet.
