Question about GE Dishwashers

Open Question

GE Model GSC1807PWW portable dishwasher door won't open. Ran cycle last night this morning door won't open.

I tried to get at the latch by sliding an allen key between the tub and door and lift or move the catch but am unsure how the latch mechanism works. Any suggestions other than using a crowbar to force it open. This is a very plain model about 8 years old and there are no electronics or test cycles that can be run.

SOURCE: Oven door stuck on locked!

E1-F5 indicates door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by this operation. Suggest oven cleaner method next time...

On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. Remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. If it is a built-in over, sometimes bending a coat hanger into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.

SOURCE: dishwasher door will not open.tried

The plastic latch release inside the door handle is broken. Most likely one of the pins holding it in place has broken.

First go to your local dishwasher supplier and look at a similar brand (GE Profile in my case) and see how the mechanism works. Next, get a thin pair of siccors, pull the dishwasher handle down and slid the siccors into the opening above the handel and push the tab holding the door closed up so it will release.

Once the door is open, remove the inside of the door to get to the latch. Remove the plastic latch release and order a new one.

Asko d3251 randomly stopping during cycle.


The thing that immediately comes to mind is a faulty door switch or latch. The door switch can be replaced and you might be ok. But the latch would be more tricky to check. Sometimes if dishwasher is not level or if the door springs are misalinged the door tends to slip and release the latch due to pressure. It works when you open and shut. But not sure about the night time cycle. That sounds a bit creepy if it starts again by itself. Why not put a tape around the door and then start. That will help eliminate the obvious ones. The other thing that exends dishwasher cycle time is the lack of adequate water temperature. Could be heater or thermostat or both.
You should be able to stroll through the parts by selecting categories on this site.

If the door is not locking properly there is a chance that the door lock switch is not being closed. This will shut off power to many of the circuits, including power to the water fill solenoid, etc. Latch mechanisms are available separately.

How do i reset the locked oven door to unlock it?


I have had that problem once.I turned off the breaker to that oven over night and then in the morning the door opened as it should.I found a GE page that is below.It may help.


http://www.geappliances.com/search/fast/infobase/10000161.htm
Some models with oven Set and Temperature knobs must have those knobs set in the Clean position before the latch can be moved to the left. If your door won't unlock, try turning those knobs back to Clean, then slide the latch over.

Hi,
The pump seal may be the problem. There are a number of places on the net where you can get step by steps and the the parts to replace the seal. Some recommend just getting a new motor pump housing which is 150. I just purchased the impeller assembly (it has all you need) and it cost $25 with shipping. Only thing is I did not realize I also had a leak in the solenoid stem valve. Let me know if you need the link I was talking about.

The door won't open - ran and re-ran the wash cycle, and it still won't disengage.


Switch OFF the main power and try. Give a bang by hand on the latch side. It might open. Do not use hammer etc.

If nothing works you have to force open carefully.
