On most dishwasers if you take off the bottom panel and look up inside by the water valve you will find a schematic.It's always folded up into a really small piece and tucked into a small black plastic bag.

GE Twenty-Eight Hundred Dishwaser says blocked washarm, but isn't Code C5

If you've checked that nothing is in the way (no spoons hanging down, etc) just press and hold start and it will start up again and probably won't reoccur for the rest of the cycle. Our dishwasher started doing this near the end of its life....

I have an older ge prfile washer & the cycle knob does not work. how do you take it off. i have pulled it & tried to unscrew it but neither works

pull knob out and look behind it. You should see a white plastic clip. You have to pull this out and then knob comes off. When replacing knob, put clip on knob first and then just push knob on to shaft.

Capacitor burned out? horrible burnt smell.

YOUR GOING TO NEED A NEW MICROWAVE . the cap may be bad but the real bad smell you have is most likely the HV tranformer , if the magntron shorts to ground there will be a small smell if you dont pick up on that and your microwave is set to run another few mins the transformer will overheat and burn , then the fuse blows and the controls shut down . the end result , you have more parts bad than you have good . if you google " GE SPACEMAKER MICROWAVE FIRE ' you will see your not the only one , its getting to be COMMON . good luck
