GE Profile built in dishwasher problem

Our fairly new dishwasher isn't working all of a sudden, for no apparent reason. Rather than the time it will take to run the selected cycle (which is usually what is displayed) the display reads Ih, or maybe I and an upside down four; And although the buttons are all lighting up when pressed (even the start button) it won't start.

Got any ideas?

My GE profile dishwasher is not draining, is it fixable?


Yes, it is fixable. I would fix check to make sure the float on the inside of the unit is not stuck (not a probable, but easily checked). Then I would pull the unit out and check the pump. If something is clogging the pump intake then it wouldn't drain. If there isn't something blocking the pump intake, then it is probably the pump itself.

Have a new GE Profile dishwasher. The LED time display started at 62 the first time we used the machine. It keeps going up and is now at 108. Is it broken and how do we reset the time back to something...


Have you tried to turn the mains power to dishwasher off and back on again.

It also possible the inlet water temperature is not at the recommended temperature so it is compensating for heating it to the desired temperature. Please check if your installation guide says you use cold water inlet or hot water inlet.

Try running on one of the eco cycles first to see if the heater is the cause. Eco cycles use lower temperature inlet water.

Dishwasher will not drain. Used compressed air and blew the drain hose. After that, dishwasher worked fine for a couple of cycles. Then problem started again.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.


First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
