GE Triton Dishwasher won't stop running

We had a power outage the other night while it was washing a load. Does anyone know how to reset/restart the dishwasher? It won't stop and it seems to be going thru random cycles. Its happened before but unfortunately I forgot what I did to clear the problem. Thanks for the help.

    Have the same problem. Resetting circuit breaker didn't help. Found it is on 2004 recall list. Thanks.

    power outage caused my GE Triton dishwasher to do the same thing. The cycles kept going and in random order.I had to turn off the circut breaker about 3 times but it finally worked.

    I ran the dishwasher and it ran and ran. Would change in the different settings, but would not stay in the drain cycle and would never stop running...Calling to see if recall # and it is.. I just about ordered a new dishwasher..Thanks to this site, I am getting this fixed!!!!

    Our triton dishwasher started running extremely long - and now it's hitting random cycles - sometimes all the lights flash on - then off -then it goes into sensing - and drying and rinsing - it's just all over the place. I tried turning off the power for 5 min. but it didn't help.

Try to reset the circuit braker--remove all power.

Have you checked to see if that model is included in the GE dishwasher recall?  I had a GE Triton Quiet Power 2 that was recalled due to fire danger after using the JetDry dispenser.  Got a decent rebate for a new GE model.

My sister year old GE dishwasher won’t start. Ha don’t a power outage and after power came on she tried to start it and wouldn’t work.

If it was running when the power outage happened, that may have "fried" the control panel.
She needs to have it checked by an appliance repair person to see if that is so.
God bless your efforts.

Yes, try unplugging it (or turning off the circuit breaker), wait for 15 to 30 seconds and then try pluggin it back in.

Air conditioner compressor runs for about 1-2 min, then cuts off

well when u have outages the voltage drops obviously, the one that suffers are the capacitors the capacitor for the compressor might need to change, change it with the same capacity as the old one example if labels say 55 microfarady ( mf ) ( 55 mf ) get one of the same I am not saying it is a 55 mf capacitor vary depending on motor and brand. So check the label

Dishwasher not draining after a power cut

I would run the heated dry cycle a few times to try and get rid of that residual water, then restart the cycle and see if it work now. If it still is a problem try cleaning out the drain line behind the dishwasher, this is a very common problem with draining. If not that then might need a valve or if you have a new garbage disposal you need to punch out a peice of the plastic or it wont drain. Hope this helped, good luck

GE Triton dishwasher will not drain and after cycle.

Look at the timer to see if the contacts have finally worn off. The circuit board may have failed too.
