Question about GE 24 in. Profile PDW8680JSS Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher has no power. Running fine 'til this point...

Checked the breaker (obvious), no problem there. Took off the front cover to check the connections on the Module Control Assembly. Nothing looks wrong. I'm assuming I have to pull it out to check where the power comes in. Has anyone ever had an issue like this?? Are there fuses somewhere on this unti that could have blown?? Or a short??

Hi Dave
Make sure that with power off you check the interlock switch. When the door closes the actuator closes the switch(s) to continue power. Make sure that door strike is entering the latch assembly ok when the door is closed. Also with the circuit breaker off, make sure the wires at the junction box are in order. Here is the interlock switch assembly. Good Luck!!!!!!!!

Whirlpool Dishwasher model gu980scgq3

Hi vicyoung0921,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Will not start, seems to have no power at all. You checked the breaker and it's fine. Is there a reset button somewhere on this dishwasher ?

Whirlpool Dishwasher model gu980scgq3

No reset, if breaker is good then check the connection at the d/w. It's under the d/w behind the kick plate on right or center under a cover box. 9 times out of 10 you'll find a loose, broken or burnt connection there. That done, it's time to call in warranty repair. If beyond warranty you might consider utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repairman. If the d/w has a few years on it perhaps it is time to compare the cost of repair verses replacement.

No power after one months usage.

Hi Red15,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: New dishwasher was working prerfectly and now it will not power up.
You checked the breaker it's fine and I checked the outlet for power.
The dishwasher will not power up. There was water at the bottom of the tub so you took out the filter removed the water and cleaned out the drain pump.
Still no power. Any suggestions on what to do next?

I see this all the time! Your problem is electrical. 9 times out of 10 you'll find a loose, broken or burnt connection in the junction box. Turn off the breaker first, we're not going to get a shock. Look under the d/w and behind the kick plate. You'll find a small metal box on the right or center. Remove the screw. You'll then find the hard wire connections we're looking for. Take wire nuts off one at a time (so we don't confise them). Inspect carefully. Replace wire nuts and restrip wire ends as nessessary. Test the unit before replacing box and plate, there's a chance you might have missed something. Confirm d/w is working then recover.

Feel free contact me again!

Dishwasher not washing

sounds like the wash pump (wich recirculates the water during wash) has something stuck in the impelor or the wash pump motor is faulty. someone qualified would have to check this for you
