GE dishwasher pdw7880 control panel lights out of sequence

How do I reset the control panel? Though the dishwasher works, the status indicator lights are out of sequence. For example: the glasses cycle reads 4 minutes, the speed cycle reads 79 minutes. As each button on the panel is pressed, the display is the cycle time for another feature, sometimes the adjacent cycle, sometimes one over.

GE Dishwasher - status indicator lights don't come on. Ideas?


Before attempting any repair on any appliance with an electronic control it's a good idea to unplug it or shut off the circuit breaker and leave the power off for 5 minutes. This will often "reset" the control and save you appliance repair costs.

I can't get the control panel to reset. The wash cycle light comes on but it just beeps and the dishwasher won't start. I press the start button and it stops beeping for a minute but it still...


II might need the actual model number. However, you can go to page 9 on this manual and check if the flashing options can fix the problem. I am assuming you have already tried to turn the power off and back on.

The ohter thing to try is the reset sequence. Within 6-7 secs press High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry. All lights should light up, press Start button to exit.

Is there a reset button on the dishwasher? if so, where?


Not sure what type of reset you are after. Is the dishwasher not responding to any panel switches.

Is the keypad locked, i.e., is the control lock light on? Then press Energy Saver Dry button for 4-5 secs.

Are some lights flashing and dishwasher will not start? Have you tried to turn mains power off and back on?

If you think the controller needs a reset, you could try this sequence of keys within 7-8 secs.
hi temp scrub/ energy saver dry/hi tempscrub/ energy saver dry/ hi temp scrub/ energy saver dry.

If the reset sequence has worked correctly, then all lights should light up. Press Cancel to exit from reset mode. I am assuming you have a users manual. If not then download from here.

Please rate the solution if it helps your problem otherwise post a comment

I have a Gu2500XTPQ1. It will not start a new wash cycle.


The blinking clean light is an interruption in the dishwasher program that either indicates a malfunction, or it can be a simple glitch. The following link explains how you may be able to clear the blinking clean light problem:

Now, keep in mind all dishwashers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting. Just remove the screws that hold the panel in place and remove.

NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.

If the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of WHICH circuit is causing your problem. As all dishwashers differ in operation and features, refer to your tech sheet for the recommended troubleshooting steps.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

Some dishwashers use the Sani-Rinse/Air Dry combination, some use the Sani-Rinse/Heated Dry combination. Some use a sequence of three, others use a sequence of 5 pushes of the buttons. The tech sheet should explain the procedures in detail. If it is not located behind the lower toe panel, or affixed somewhere under the dishwasher, I have also found them located inside the inner door panel. Let me know if you still need assistance.

Filter light status


Please verify the model number for your fridge, as the description shows a Frigidare 24" dishwasher.

With the model number and you providing the different buttons on the front panel, I can provide you with the button sequence to push and hold to reset the filter light.

While waiting for the needed info for an exact solution, you can try this:
If you have a "light" and "lock" button, push and hold them together for several seconds, the filter light should go off or change back to green.

If not, please provide me with the brand and model number for your fridge so I can give you the correct procedure for resetting the indicator light, by responding back with a "comment".

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

GE Max dishwasher no lights on panel


I have the same problem and actually found a workaround by mistake you may try as a temporary solution (if that works for you):

- press and hold the lock button for a couple of seconds
(the delay timer would increase by 1 hour)
- press and hold the lock button again
- repeat until it reaches 9hrs
- repeat one more time: the control panel should be functionnal again.

Let me know if that worked for you!

Water Filter Indicator


I discovered by sheer luck that if I hold down the OK button for a few seconds the filter indicator changed from the flashing 1% to 99%.
