Question about GE 24 in. GLD5860LSS Stainless Steel Free-Standing Dishwasher
I have a GE MAX that's about 5 years old. The problem is that there is 2 lights (normal and heat dry) that are always on in the control pannel but when I push the start button the get it to work, well, it won't. I tried putting the braker off for about 15 min and turn it back on, but still nothing. The 2 same lights always come on when I shut the door latch but that's all it does. I also looked to see if the control panel was locked but the little lock that's showing beside the "heat dry" function isn't lit. I also tried to press that "heat dry" button for 3 secs like mentioned on the tech sheet to see if it would lock and still nothing. Also, I pressed on the start/reset button for also 3 secs and it won't do anything.
please help 'cause dishes is accumulating....big time!!
Thanks I also have a GE dishwasher although not the same model. It is brand new. It worked the first 2 times it was ran and then started doing the same thing. Every once and a while, after many, many tries, it will start. It will start about 1 out of every 50 times you try. The lights on the panel are lighting up but they do not respond when you push any of them.
I turned off the power to the dishwasher for 10 minutes as recommended by a serviceman via the phone and then turned it back on and it reset itself and worked fine.....

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.
