GE Profile dishwasher GSD4930X88WW will not start C3 error code

Good day. I have a GE profile dishwasher model in sibject line that is not working. I am a retired Electonic Engineer and sadly have no wiring diagram to help work through the bug.( none on panel of machine ). I have replace the stop check valve that is on the finial output as was suggested for a C3 error code. This has not helped. The unit powers up that goes to a C7 after I reset that the unit defaults to the C3 code. Some time it powers up ( that is digital display only- NO operations active ) then show the C3 fault code first thing.
I am looking for any suggestions along with a wiring diagram / schematic if available. If not can you tell me if all relays / survo's / etc operate on a 110 VAC bases or are there step down voltages that operation the units functions.
I thank you for your help and look forward to NOT washing dishes by hand...!
Take care
Sincerely MR. Clean hands.

Re: GE Profile dishwasher GSD4930X88WW will not start C3...

The wiring diagram for GE dishwashers is usually found under the dishwasher, take the bottom panel off, then look for a envelope about 3"x5" up against the bottom side of the floor of the dishwasher, right under/behind the front edge. If its not there it makes servicing it tougher. C3 code means the drain sensor is not functioning, C7 code means the temperature sensor is not functioning.
As to the voltages used, I would only know that by looking at the wiring diagram (which I do not have).

Hi I have a GE Dishwasher model gsd2200g -03 and I am getting C1 & C2 error codes but it seems to be working fine. I disconnected the drain hose and the water appears to be draining properly

hello there:
if you have installed a new garbage disposal make sure the knock out has been removed if removed then check the drain valve in the pump hope this helps you out sincerely D.Jones

Profile dishwasher not draining at end of cycle.

It would have helped if you provided the model no.

Check this GE website for possible causes. If you do not have the user manual then you can also download it from here, But you will need the model number. (should be etched on the body of the dishwasher)

you have set it to start after a one hour delay- just press the start delay button until it cycles through past 24h and you will get back to the immediate start mode...
