Question about GE Dishwashers

1 Answer

Hello - our GE triton dishwasher door latch will no longer ''latch''. It gets stuck about 1/4 of the way. I took off the panel and looked at the latch. Seems one piece of it gets ''stuck'' with another lever. Not sure how to fix it?

I am not familier with the Triton however on many under counter dishmachines with a front door such as the CMA L1X one or both latch or catch is bolted or screwed to the frame in a manner that can be adjusted by loosening the fasteners and realigning the two parts then snuging them in the position that works properly. Hopefully that will be the case with yours too.

My GE dishwasher door is stuck closed


Have you tried wiggling it side to side? The diswasher may not be secured properly and will vibrate while running. If the counter opening is relatively small it can be hard to open the door if the dishwasher is off center.

My GE dishwasher's door is stuck shut ~ I'm assuming a broken latch. I was told to fix the latch, the dishwasher has to be taken out from under the counter top (in order to get the door open). My...


Well I'll try to help you get this opened. I don't know how much space you have at the top side edge of the dishwasher. You need a long stiff rod like a metal clothes hanger straightened so it can reach from the side to a little past the dishwasher middle. You need to push it in between the door top and the dishwasher body up at the latch area. What holds the door closed is a flat metal piece with a plastic hook on the end facing down towards the floor. You need to try and get the rod under the metal piece and lift it slightly, hopefully to unhook the the door. If you can't do that, the only alternative is to pull hard on the door handle and you should be able to break the plastic part of the latch which will then have to be replaced. The part that should break is the top hook which would be an easy replacement, but I can't be sure thats all the damage to the latch that will happen. It may do some damage to the part inside the door also. This is last resort. I'll try to attach a parts breakdown of the tub so you can see the latch hook. Look at item #50

I have a GE dishwasher model GSD1100G and the door will not latch now. Any ideas?


Yessir, I have a few.
1. Check the latch and strike. Usually, they're just loose.
2. Check the wiring to the switch. The lock and latch take a good bit of vibration being opened and closed.
3. Take a good look at the latch for physical damage. It happens. Your only recourse here is probably to replace the latch.
4. You didn't mention if the washer would run; the door latch is a permissive switch - if the washer will run, the switch is making contact, but the latch is defective. If it won't run, either the latch switch is bad, or the issue may be the control panel.
Best regards, --W/D--

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.

Door locked


To manually unlock the door lock system, perform the following steps. Power off the mains.
1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the lower toe panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a teardrop shaped tab. Gently pull the tab down approximately 1/4 inch, or until a click is heard.
5. The door may now be manually opened.

Soap door latch won't latch close


Make sure the dial that you turn to start the dishwasher is all the way to the beginning. Sometimes my little grandson comes by and plays with it, turning it. I load, add soap and the dispenser won't close. I check the outside dial, and sure enough, set it to the very beginning and the dispenser locks in place!
