Question about GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher
The beeping stops for 20-30 sec. the goes back to Normal wash cycle beeping.
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.

Same issue, machine is about 30 days past waranty. Door switch broke, but of course they (GE repair) do not fix the switch, you have to order the Escutcheon Body (whole panel) to fix ~$350 total.

Although this post is old, I will help anyone else that is searching for the answer. I too had this problem but after looking at the schematics for this dishwasher, I could see where the problem was.
First, open the door and remove the eight screws that hold the inside cover to the front door on. BE CAREFUL. There are wires attached from the front panel of the door to the inside panel for the soap dispenser. Close the inside panel by slowly raising it up into its closed position and locking into place. Looking at the front panel from the inside, there is a black box at the top with a white PLASTIC PIN. This pin activates the "CLOSED" signal to the control unit. Push and HOLD the white pin DOWN until the system resets. If this does not work, you may need a new unit which runs about $6. After reseting the system, raise the front panel slightly and press and hold RESET/START for 5-6 secs. Now, with a second person holding the inner liner against the machine tightly, I started a cycle and it worked fine. Unlock the inner panel and slowly lower back down and replace the 8 screws.
It's really very simple 10 min fix. the reason this happens is due to the flawed design of the SWITCH PIN, which is not rigid enough. It tends to move side to side and become stuck. A better quality PIN assembly would solve this issue for GE forever.

Keep pushing the buttons (any) including reset,hold them down for a few minutes and the system will reset its self. Just pushing the reset will not do it,push all buttons in turn

II might need the actual model number. However, you can go to page 9 on this manual and check if the flashing options can fix the problem. I am assuming you have already tried to turn the power off and back on.
The ohter thing to try is the reset sequence. Within 6-7 secs press High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry. All lights should light up, press Start button to exit.
