Start button on the HMI won't work

GE PDW9800 Profile DW. Start button on the HMI won't work. This happened sometime after a wash cycle was complete earlier in the day. All other functions work. Get an 'engage' beep with door opening and closing. Tripped breaker a few times to reset, goes to normal cycle, same issue.

None of the status LED's are lit either.

Re: start button on the HMI won't work

There is a ribbon cable that connects to the control panel. Mine was operating the same as yours. I opened up the front and reinserted the cable and its been fine ever since. you need to take all the screws out from the door panel inside the washer to geet to it.

I try to start my GE Profile Dishwasher and nothing happens after I press start except for a click. Is my water pump busted? The dishwasher powers on ok.

Here is a list to trouble shoot your DW. Cross off each item as you go. If this is a new DW..... less than a year old..... it may be under installers warrantee and definitely is under a manufacturers warrantee. Keep that in mind as you go.

Look also at your owners manual for troubleshooting help.

My ge profile dishwasher, pdw7800, just keeps running in the wash cycle

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these points must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Check how to remove the control panel:

It is unclear from your description if the wash pump starts and pushes the water around but never stops cycle or the dishwasher stops as soon as the water is filled.

If you do not hear the wash pump start then it is possible the wash motor is faulty. But if the wash pump starts and never completes the wash cycle then it is possible the heater is faulty and dishwasher is waiting for water to heat up before it can go to next cycle.

See the attached diagram for location of wash pump motor and heater.

Hope this helps you find the problem. Please rate the solution if you found it useful.

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.

I have a gsd5610 and my drying button is blinking.the unit will not start

Someone opened your DW during last washing cycle. The Machine paused but no-one pushed the button to resume the cycle. It's still waiting for you to tell it to finish last cycle. Press your PAUSE/Cancel button 'til the light goes off. Then use your machine as you normally would.

Hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck! :-)

DW will not drain

If the dishwasher is not completely draining, your dishes probably aren't as clean as they could be either.

Most dishwashers have a filter screen to keep solid food from getting into the pump. This could be stopped up. Also look for kinks in the drain hose.

Whirlpool Gold model GU1200 will not start wash cycle

FYI, for anyone else with the same symptoms. I took mine apart and found that the seal on the motor shaft failed and over time corroded the motor shaft bearing causing it to failed. I ordered full motor assembly from the parts store.

Start/reset button flashing

The GE technician came to my place this morning and here what he told me.

The start / reset button is used to reset the current wash cycle. You just have to close the door and 90 sec later the dishwasher will be ready to start another cycle. This button is used usually to cancel a wash cycle.

A more drastic measure is to turn off the dishwasher breaker in the electric panel for 30 minutes in order to clear the memory of the panel. After 30 minutes, turn on the breaker and the dishwasher will be back to the factory defaults.

At this point you should not have any problems.
