C5 error on GE Twenty-Eight Hundred dishwasher.

I just installed a old GE Twenty-Eight Hundred dishwasher but we keep getting a C5 error stating the water pressure is low and not enough water. I installed a new shutoff value and dishwasher water supply line so I am confident the water supply is adequate and unobstructed. Are there any parts pre or post pump that could clog triggering the C5 error? Any suggestions?
Thanks for your help.

    ihave the same problem. If it hooked up to the same line as the sink, I found that it helps to hit the sink disposal firts for both the c5 and the one that says water level is high

If you've checked that nothing is in the way (no spoons hanging down, etc) just press and hold start and it will start up again and probably won't reoccur for the rest of the cycle. Our dishwasher started doing this near the end of its life....

Recent changes in the law prevent soap makers from putting phosphates in dishwasher soap so they're not as effective as the were even a few months ago.  Unfortunately,  the solution is more thorough rinsing before loading.

I keep getting a washer arm blocked error.


I have had the same problem for a couple of years. When it tops without opening the door just press the start button and it will resume and finish the load.

Disconnect the drainline and hook up a shop vac set up for wet and draw the drain line clear. Sure it isn't the pump?

Doesn't run


I asked for help when the dishwasher (GE 1991) started up and then quit. Your site was useful as we found a priority list of things to check, thus saving much time and confusion. Our problem turned out to be a disconnected ground wire.

Thanks for the help. You probably saved us a couple of hundred dollars for a repairman. We intend to replace the dishwasher next year when the kitchen is renovated so the timing was important.
