SOURCE: need side mount brackets gpf65

I don’t know your counter situation, usually you have to put dishwasher in a bottom cabinet and mount both side. Suppose you only have one side to mount, you have to go to home depot to buy a 90 degree metal mounting bar, mount the top part to your top granite support board, the bottom side mount to the dishwasher, it should be a ¾” plywood board underneath the granite, you can use ½” screw to mount it.

Hope this can help you,

SOURCE: GE Nautilus dishwasher wont run

Thank you! Our dishwasher hasn't been working for so long. I've tried spinning the fan to get it unstuck a long time ago but I thought that wasn't the problem. The fan was stuck real tight and i couldn't turn it more than a quarter turn each time. This time it worked!

-Turned off power to dishwasher on circuit breaker
-Removed kick panel
-Used two screw drivers, one to turn the fan till I couldn't any more and the other one to hold the blades in place so that it wouldnt "unwind". Then I would turn the fan some more. It turned less and less each but after repeating about 5 times the fan got un-stuck.
-Turned the power back on to the dishwasher and turned the dishwasher back on and IT WORKS!

THANK YOU!!

SOURCE: GE Profile PDW7880G00SS Dishwasher will not Start

Re: My dishwasher start light flashes and the timer display is blank.

That is a fault condition, if the display is blank it is probably a faulty control board.

Unplug the appliace from main, or trip circuit braker to cut power for ten minutes.

If display is still blank on startup, then replace the timer control assembly.

SOURCE: GE Dishwasher Start Problem (with no water)

Model # should be on inside of tub wall....but any way...

This is a typical GE problem which I have seen many times...When a DW sets for a while not being used...the motor often freezes up....Take the front (lower panel off....find the motor assembly...(with the DW unplugged!!...very important)reach in with you hand or a screw driver...preferably your hand...at the back of the motor...there should be a impeller blade...you should be able to reach in with a finger and pull it down..it may be resistant so find a way to hold it in place as you reach up to the next impller blade and pull down further...finally it will all of a sudden free up....after which you plug it back in and start it up...I am also including a step by step (no drain problem check list as you may run into an issue like this if it has not been operated for a while ....notice article # 5).


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

I hope this helps...it is always useful to include the Model #...more specific instructions can then be provided

Good Luck and good day.....please rate my effort...the Fang

What does a 5h code indicate


The GE dishwasher error codes I have seen start with a letter (usually "C") not a number. I suspect that this isn't an error, but an indication that you have activated the system to delay starting the dishwasher. I believe 5h represents a 5 hour delay. Pressing the "Delay" button should cycle through the different selections and eventually bring it back to Zero.

GE dishwasher GLD5800L Experiencing panel issues - the start or delay button does not work.


The door closed switches on this model are a problem. There are two switches activated by the plunger. They both need to be open when the door is open and both closed when the door is closed. Remove power before working on the switches. I had to add small spacers to adjust the switches position. The touch panel will not work right if the switches are acting up.

GE profile performance dishwasher- not starting after child pushed buttons.


The only way we have been able to fix this is to turn off the breaker to the dishwasher for 5 minutes and then turn the power back on. The dishwasher should reset.

Start/reset button flashing


The GE technician came to my place this morning and here what he told me.

The start / reset button is used to reset the current wash cycle. You just have to close the door and 90 sec later the dishwasher will be ready to start another cycle. This button is used usually to cancel a wash cycle.

A more drastic measure is to turn off the dishwasher breaker in the electric panel for 30 minutes in order to clear the memory of the panel. After 30 minutes, turn on the breaker and the dishwasher will be back to the factory defaults.

At this point you should not have any problems.
