Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a GE Dishwasher model GSD4430X72WW.

The control panel keeps flashing ''power failure'' even though the power to the unit is on, the breaker is good, etc. If I open the door, close the door and reset the dishwasher handle, the message will clear itself for a random (minutes to days) amount of time, then start flashing again. It often starts flashing in the middle of a cycle and we have to start all over again.

Can I fix this, or do I need to buy a whole new control panel?

Hi, the surge has fried the logic sector of the control. it will work upon reset until the logic chip is commanded to initiate a wash. thsi is when the fault will kick in. I recommend replacing the control. this is the best action.

Leaking around heating element posts that protrude through dishwasher body


Some dishwashers like your model number are under recall for a potential fire hazard due to water leaking through the heating element posts onto the wiring.
Your serial number must begin with the 2 letters listed . Below is the list of recall serial numbers: FL, GL, HL, LL, ML, VL, ZL, AM, DM, FM, GM, HM, LM, MM, RM, SM, TM, VM, ZM, AR, DR, FR, GR
Call the phone # below or check out GE recall website. What GE does is replace the element and gaskets, unless there is burnt or arcing visible on the wires, they may replace the dishwasher.

www.geappliances.com/products/recall
GE has determined that an electrical failure in the dishwasher's heating element can pose a fire hazard. GE will provide a free repair to all consumers with units affected by the recall. We ask that you not use your dishwasher until it is repaired and to disconnect the electric supply by shutting off the fuse or circuit breaker controlling it and inform all users of the dishwasher about the risk of fire.
Consumers who instead wish to replace their dishwasher with a new model can receive a rebate towards the purchase of certain new GE and Profile brand dishwashers. Consumers can use a rebate of $75 for the purchase of certain GE front-control plastic tub dishwashers, or a GE rebate of $100 for the purchase of certain GE front-control stainless tub dishwashers or GE Profile top control dishwashers. See the rebate form for eligible models.
GE is aware of 15 reports of dishwasher heating element failures, seven of which resulted in fire and smoke damage beyond the unit. No injuries have been reported.
The model and serial numbers are important, as not all dishwashers are included in the recall. Look at the inside on the front left side of the dishwasher tub to find the model and serial number.
This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which will also monitor the effectiveness of the recall program.
Recall Hotline
866-918-8760
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. ET.
Before calling, have the model and serial numbers on hand.

Electrolux Model EDW5505EPS the control panel is stuck on short cycle. What problem does this indicate?


Hello Matthew, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Let's try reprogramming your dishwasher. This can be done by flipping the breaker off for approximately ten minutes. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, your dishwasher could possibly be experiencing a communication error with the control board/panel or could have a wiring failure. I would suggest contacting an experienced service technician to determine the precise cause.

Had a power failure from bad weather now the dishwasher is dead? checked the fuse box the breaker is fine, there are no lights on the display panel. what is the reset procedure for this dishwasher?


Try turning the breaker for the dishwasher off for 30 seconds and turn it back on. This should reset the dishwasher control board. If it still doesn't work then most likely the power failure burned up the main control board. The control boards in the newer dishwashers are sensitive to any type of power surges or failures.

Hope this gets it running for ya.

Hi! My Bosch began by tripping the breaker during the cycle (several times if I could get it to reset) and now will not start at all. Even when the dishwasher is off I cannot reset the breaker unless I...


Hello

Welcome to Fixya.

Based on your post,"...Even when the dishwasher is off I cannot reset the breaker unless I kind of move the machine around a bit. Sometimes it pops the breaker just closing the door..."

These are the most common reason for these Bosch dishwashers not having power.


#1

I would start by first shutting off the breaker. Then removing the kick plate ( access panel at the bottom ) and checking the wiring at the junction box for the dishwasher 120vac supply line.

Remove the murret's and visually inspect the wire for "resistance burn" and strip the wires back and install new fastener's if necessary to repair.

i.e.

60f6a31.jpg

This is actually quite common to find a wire connector come loose due to improper fastening and once the unit is in use for a while the connections heat & cool, become loose from normal operating vibrations and burn up from all the added heat caused by "resistance".

#2


A wire severed inside the door panel, hence the breaker trips by just moving the door in an open/close motion.

Check thoroughly in this location...

The end result is tripping the breaker and no power to the controls.

Check it out and post back what you find. Thanks for visiting "fixya" and please take a moment to rate the solution/suggestion provided here for you.

Good luck.

Macmarkus :)

Possible failur of the control panel. It can be a power supply failure in this unit, can be the SMPS, if so please refer to my repair guide to service SMPS, Check my link:

if not the controller unit must be changed.

Why is it dead?


Check power at the source; there could be a tripped breaker. If power is getting to your dishwasher, there may have been sudden failure of a part, such as the heater.

GE Profile PDW7880G00SS Dishwasher will not Start


Re: My dishwasher start light flashes and the timer display is blank.

That is a fault condition, if the display is blank it is probably a faulty control board.

Unplug the appliace from main, or trip circuit braker to cut power for ten minutes.

If display is still blank on startup, then replace the timer control assembly.
