The interlock switches on dishwashers can be the culprit for many malfunctions. When they sporadically loose continuity they break havoc on the programed sequences of the unit. I eventually removed mine altogether and replaced them with an illuminated manual switch. My dishwasher works great now. The issue you're experiencing was a persistent problem for me before removal of the interlock switches. I have a very cheap GE.

Changed battery terminals and now dinging wont stop unless warning light fuse removed


It sounds like it thinks the key is still in it all the time. Try turning the key forward to the on position, but not running, so the dinging stops. disconnect the battery. Remove the key completely and reconnect the battery.

Door is ajar message when shut light comes on but doesnt run


That's because the door switch isn't getting pushed when you're closing the dryer door for some reason or another. Its located at the top of the door. Try pushing the switch by hand and seeing if the light shuts off when you manually push it.

Door ajar and interior lights won't go off!


open the door and there will be a small piece of plastic that can be pushed into and out of the door jamb. You will need to replace that because it is not telling the computer the door is shut.

Wont start


The lights flash when the door is not shut all the way, or the sensor that detects that the door is shut is not sensing the door is shut. Try pushing in on the door while hitting the start button.
