Dishwasher (GE Nautilus) Control Panel Loose

The front door panel (where the controls are located) is loose on my dishwasher door and is getting looser. I've tried tightening the five screws on the inside of the door, but that doesn't tighten the panel.

I can't find any other obvious screws, anywhere, which might be loose. Any ideas as to how to tighten this front panel? It's so loose I can see the styrofoam liner.

I cant get my dishwasher to start


Defective Door Switch?The next thing that could be causing your dishwasher to not start could be the door switch. This door switch is also sometimes called a door lock or door interlock switch. This switch is a safety feature and makes it so the dishwasher will not run if the door is open. If your dishwasher won't start, then it is possible this switch is bad. This switch is located inside the door panel. To determine if the door switch is bad, remove the control panel, locate the door switch, and test it for continuity.
Blown Thermal Fuse?Another part in your dishwasher that could be causing it to not start could be the thermal fuse. This fuse is designed to blow if the dishwasher overheats. If this fuse blows, it will need to be removed and replaced to make your dishwasher work. Most dishwashers have the thermal fuse located in the control panel area. To determine if the thermal fuse is bad, remove the control panel, locate the fuse, and test it for continuity.
Broken Door Latch?The part that holds your dishwasher door shut is called a door latch. 99% of the time this latch is made from plastic. If this latch becomes broken or cracked, it will prevent your door from closing properly. To determine if your door latch is bad, inspect your dishwasher door and be sure the latch is not broken.
Defective Main Control Board?The control board in your dishwasher supplies power to all components. If your dishwasher won't start, this could mean that the board is bad. If you have tested and confirmed working all the other steps above, then the control board in your dishwasher is most likely bad and replacing it would be a smart option at this point.

GE dishwasher model GLD5868V15SS handle loose


This model comes with two types of doors. One with a single panel with integrated control on top or a two part door with control unit in front. The handle varies.

If you have a single door panel with handle bar across from right to left then you need to carefully unscrew the back panel screws and free up the front panel. the handle is screwed to the front panel from inside. Once you tighten carefully put the back door panel in and tighten. Take photos along the way to make sure you get back where you started. Also unplug dishwasher before working on it.

If you have a two part door with front control then handle and access to it is different. See diagram on this website for blow up of the panel and location of handle (part 713).

Nothing lights up on panel


Always check your circuit breaker 1st to see if it is tripped.If that is ok turn it back off and check the household electrical connection to the dishwasher. This can be found by removing the kickplate below the door. The junction box is usually located in the lower right front corner. Check the wire nuts for a loose or burnt connections. If that is ok your most likely cause is the main control which is located in the control panel.

My GE Nautilus dishwasher stopped. Before it


Sounds like your door interlock switch is faulty.

There is a metal tab on the unit that triggers a interlock switch. The switch is located in the door and is part of the door handle. This tells the machine that the door is closed and that it is OK to start.

Most probably the first experience with the machine continuing to work with the door open was that the switch in the door was stuck in the on position. When you closed the door it moved to off and stuck there.

Open the door and use a screwdriver to move the switch to the on position. Move the timer to on. You should hear the unit start. If so it is the switch. Repair or replace it. You could try WD40 and switching it on and off a few times to free it up. Once you can see it is working make sure it is aligning with the tab correctly. You can bend the tab to adjust the alignment.

To repair:

Turn the breaker off.

There are screws on the frame of the door and in the door to hold the control panel in place. Carefully remove the control panel to access the switch. Once you see it you will be able to remove it easily as it just screws in. Replacement is the reverse of removal.

Hope this helps please rate if it does help you.

Dishwasher leaks from bottom


You must first determine exactly where the water is coming from. The water supply line may be loose or cross-threaded. The overflow float may be stuck in the down position. This will allow the machine to over-fill and leak. The door seal may be worn or off-position. The drain line may be loose or have a hole in it. The wash tub may have a crack in it that needs to be sealed. A gasket around the motor or the heating element may be loose or split.
Get a flashlight. Remove the bottom panel. Start the cycle. Get comfortable on the floor and watch closely. This may be a simple fix. Something like tightening a loose hose. Good luck
