Dishwasher beeping during dry cycle - just replaced eschucheon

I have a GE dishwasher (gsd5500g00bb) and had to replace the ESCUTCHEON & INSERT ASM (part 901) which meant that I had to take the front panel apart.

See diagram at http://www.us1internet.net/GSD5500G00BB/ for part numbers.

I got the escutcheon in correctly, however the spring timer lever (part 837) and lever (part 861) popped out. I believe these parts are underneath the Sequence Switch (part 904 ). I put it in how I thought was correct by holding down the dishwasher soap dispenser in the closed position and then closed the two parts of the front panel.

I'm concerned that I may not have put the two parts back together correctly and that the switch may be in the wrong location. I can't find a diagram online of what it looks like or fits together. Nor do I have a user manual as this is a rental property.

The soap dispenser would not open all the way, but I was able to put in the soap and close the dispenser.

The dishwasher ran fine until it got to the drying cycle and then started beeping. And ideas?

I turned off the dishwasher and the soap dispenser was wide open as it should be. However, it is very difficult to close it. I don't know if it's related to the issue at all.

Thanks.
Dee

SOURCE: Dry Dishwasher Soap Still in dispenser after wash.

so here it is...
get a screw driver (you may need a "star" head driver as well), get in there and take out all that you can and clean it (it all comes out pretty easily)...you will find a lot of undisolved soap and hard water build up...rinse it, scrape it, vacuum it...just get out as much as you can...keep note of how you took it apart so you can put it back together...then put 1/2 to a whole gallon of vinegar in and run a cycle (hi-temp if you have that option)...if it was like mine most of your sprayers were gummed up and the water just wasn't moving through the machine...

to avoid this problem...use half of what you have been using of your detergent...and only fill the "pre rinse" section if you are doing pots and pans....and then only fill that half way as well.
after that run a few cups of vinegar through on an empty cycle once a month...
whole job (not including the wash cycle) 1.5 hours...

SOURCE: Dishwasher soap dispenser won't open during cycle

I had the same problem with my GE Adora. The dishes were getting cloudy and the soap dispenser would not open. Turns out the hard water deposits were causing the soap dispenser to stick shut. I purchased and used Dishwasher Magic which is a dishwasher cleaner designed to remove limescale, rust and buildup. I used as directed and now my dishes are sparkling and the soap dispenser pops right open.

GE Profile dishwasher too loud during the washing cycle


It has been my experience that water doesn't damage motors it destroys them! While it is possible I guess I would look and see if there is any kind of drive mechanism between the motor and the arm that could have been damaged. A warped shaft, bearing or bushing or something of that nature.

Not draining water


You need to replace the piston assembly check valve (see http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-gsd5500g-%3d%3di821081&PartID=821081). This part is beneath the rear filter frame. You then twist it out. In my dishwasher the little rubber valve piece had completely disintegrated. That allows water to be pumped back into the dishwasher rather then being emptied out the drain house. I replaced the little rubber piece with a piece of plastic cut from a milk jug bottle cap. My first attempt wore out after about a year. I just replaced it again. Works like a champ. Or you can just order the part you need from repairclinic.com

The water isn't getting hot


If the water to your kitchen tap is above 120 to around 145 your machine is getting hot water. If not your need to adjust your hot water heater.
It is fine to open the DW door during the wash cycle. The unit will hold the wash cycle. Open the door during the start of the wash cycle (not rinse) and see it the dispenser door is open. If not it could be the timer is not sending the proper signal to the dispenser on when to open. This would be a timer issue and you would want to replace the timer. I doubt that this is it but it is possible.
Hope this helps.

Dishwasher buzzer will not turn off. no lights on display, buttons have no effect, and killing power to dishwasher does not reset board.


You may be able to cancel the cycle buzzer by pressing the HEATED DRY button 5 times in 3 seconds. You should hear a 3 beep signal. If not your control board will have to be replaced.

GE Nautilus Soap does not dissolve


What is happening, is that your dishes are washing dry. Start the dishwasher and slowly turn the timer till it starts to fill. Let it go and see how they are after

Blinking lights on control panel


Same issue, machine is about 30 days past waranty. Door switch broke, but of course they (GE repair) do not fix the switch, you have to order the Escutcheon Body (whole panel) to fix ~$350 total.
