    Jun 05, 2010 - Thanks for your suggestion. Let me give you more details. The outlet is fine. The connection is fine. The touch panel on the dishwasher start button turns on and off while the other buttons stay lit. Also, I have to keep the door open otherwise the dishwasher will start on its own and run through all the cycles over and over.... Hope this helps.

    The dishwasher will start, run through all cycles and stop. Then it will beep and start again.maybe five minutes later or one minute later. if i open the door so it doesn't start running through all the cycles, the start button light turns on and off by itself and beep at the same time that the start button lights up. the beep is typicall when pushing the buttons to start or stop or choose any other cycle button. Thanks

Hi Chris.

Reset is done disconnecting power for about ten minutes (disconnect power cord or trip circuit breaker). This will drain power from internal circuit resetting the control assembly.

The two common resons for dishwasher turning on and off are faulty motor or faulty control board. A wiring problem can also turn machine on and off.

The control board is the last part to replace unless evidently faulty (eg. burnt component, or bulged capacitor etc.).
The test is done jumping and energizing pump motor, ensuring that wiring has continuity, and finally reading voltages from control board to motor with the aid of a diagnostic light or a voltmeter (easier than using a multimeter).
The door latch can also affect the cycle, and must be tested first. The latch is tested by jumping the door switch contacts to bypass the switch.
For safety reasons some of testing procedures described are only suitable for a trained technician.

If you want to arrange repair or verify warranty status, call the GE number listed on the owners manual.

Hi,
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Let us know if you want something more else please accept the solution.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

GE dishwashers use either a drain solenoid or a separate drain pump assembly. Sounds like your drain pump isn't getting power to it until you start other cycles, which sounds like control board issues.

Possibly, but first, check the door switches and their cover to make sure they are OK. You will have to seperate the inner and outer halves of the door to get to them, located where the tub latch protrudes into the door.
