Question about GE Dishwashers
Our 2 1/2 yr old GE Profile Dishwasher (Model# PDW9280NSS) will not turn on. About a month ago it stopped in the middle of a wash cycle. It wouldn't start again so my wife unplugged it and plugged it back in again and restarted it. It stopped again while filling with water and wouldn't start again. I ordered a new control module and installed it and saw some flashing of the key pad but it still wouldn't work. I then ordered a new touchpad and installed it but it still won't work. It is now completely dead, no lights on at all.
OK, this may sound silly, but check this out: I ran into a similar situation, and found that the electrical connections, where the incomming power connects to the dishwasher, were bad. The wire nuts were not making good solid contact. When they heated up a bit, the wire momentarily broke contact. Check it by getting to the connections behind the toe kick panel, then holding the twist on wire connectors (one at a time) and give a moderate pull on each individual wire to make sure none come loose. This may not be your problem, but it may be. It is the first place to check after you, make sure you do have power to the dishwasher. (no tripped breaker, etc.)
