Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a GE triton quiet power 2 dishwasher, and the "normal" wash light will not stop blinking/beeping. Because of this, it will not start any cycle, just keeps beeping and blinking. Please help!! Ive tried opening the door, which causes it to stop beeping (still blinking), but as soon as its re-locked, it starts again. Tried unplugging it, and turning the breaker on/off. Comes right back on blinking and beeping. Hitting the "start/reset" button stops it for maybe a minute, then it goes right back. I dont know what happened! It has worked perfectly up until today.

Hello Shayla Moy!

What an annoying situation!

You were wise to try a hard reset by plugging and unplugging. Often a solution with modern appliances with electronic controls. See, control, alt delete ??.

The troubleshooting page of your manual will likely translate the desperate message your machine is trying to convey, or a call to GE service, although they often just want to schedule a visit by a tech.

Unfortunately, this sounds like the "blue screen of d$&th", since you have already plucked the low hanging fruit.

A final thought. Unplug the unit and how far you can find your way below the screen at the bottom of the tub. Maybe something large, like a piece of broken glass has jammed the soft food grinder causing the unit to shut itself down. Of course, if that were the case, the unit would start briefly every time, then display the symptoms you describe.

Also, grunge buildup is a common issue. If you have an accessible water level float switch, remove that and inspect. Unfortunately, it may be external to the tub, on the side.

Is there water in the tub or did the unit run a full cycle last go?

All the best.

The normal wash and heated dry lights keep blinking on my GE Quiet Power2 dishwasher. Every few minutes it will beep. I am unable to wash dishes.


Check the door switch, is the door completely shut? Door switches will ware out, they are used everytime you open, and close the dishwasher

I have a GE QuietPower3 dishwasher... the normal wash, heated dry, hot wash and hot start buttons are all flashing... can you tell me what is going on please?


try this, I was researching and found that this solution worked. While all the lights are blinking, close the dishwasher door and let the machine run through the cycles. This actually happens pretty fast. Then it will stop and quiet down and all the blinking lights will shut off. Then just press the buttons you want and hit start and the machine will start. The time it takes for the blinking light to shut off is about 1 to 2 minutes. It worked for me.

MY GE Triton GSD5200 just stopped mid cycle...it is beeping and the normal cycle light is blinking. What is wrong?


I had the exact same problem. It was near the end of the cycle and it just stopped and then started beeping. I opened the door, and something seemed to pop. Looking at the mechanism, I'm thinking that the Jet Dry dispenser had gotten stuck somehow, and fiddling with the door loosened it. If it gets stuck again, I'll probably just remove it since I never use Jet Dry.

NORMAL Wash light is blinking and I can't CANCEL wash. GE Quiet Power II PROFILE dishwasher. Started a normal wash and a few minutes into it the NORMAL light started blinking and can't find a way to reset.


We had the same issue with ours...tried turning off at the breaker, still didn't reset. Contacted appliance repair who came in and unplugged it from underneath the sink, waited a few seconds and plugged it back...dishwasher reset and repairman charged trip charge and labor $65 BUT problem is resolved and we now know what to do in the future.

Ge triton xl dishwasher


One answer is NEVER buy another GE product!!! I bought all GE Profile appliances when I redecorated my kitchen. Have had issues with every single piece. Refrigerator has been replaced twice (on 3rd one). Triton XL dishwasher will not reset...good luck getting it back to normal wash if you change a cycle...for example to run just a rinse. It is almost impossible to get it to reset. And don't get me started on the over the stove microwave. Never have been able to use the lights. Every time from day one I turn them on, the bulbs blow and the cover shatters. Absolutely no support from GE!!!
