Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You shouldNEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.Service manual below, if the above doesn't help. http://appliancejunk.com/ge/dishwasher/31-9137.pdf

GE dishwasher with tactile board. Worked fine until special fingers caused issue? Now only the CANCEL and timer light-up when CANCEL pressed. Pump runs to drain for 2 minutes. Stops. NOTHING. Dont see...


This should help: PDW8000 series: press the resetbutton once. This will cancel the washing cycle and pump the water out of themachine. PDW9000 series: open the door aninch and wait for the machine to stop. Touch the reset button to cancel thewashing cycle and reboot the panel.
According to the GE Owner's Manual for the PDW9000 series only: If the"start/reset" light is flashing, close the door until the water pumpsout (this takes approximately 2 minutes) and the light stops flashing. When thelight stops flashing, the dishwasher can be reprogrammed and restarted. If the machine is unresponsive, killthe power to the machine by turning it off on the wall switch (if applicable)or turning the circuit breaker off. Leave the power off for 30 seconds,then turn the power back on. If thatdoes not work here is the repair info: Get into the service mode by pressingkeypads #8 and #4 for 3 seconds. Then reset from service mode. LINK to SCHEMATIC

Green start button won't stop blinking


START/RESET status indicator light flashing


You have pressed the indicator light flashing START/RESET pad while the START/RESET dishwasher is running. This will cancel the cycle. The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains (about 90 seconds).


Press the pad once to start the dishwasher. Press the pad a second time when the dishwasher is running only if you wish to cancel the cycle.


Power to the dishwasher was turned off while a cycle was running and power has just been restored to the dishwasher. The blinking lights indicate that the dishwasher is draining the potential water inside.


The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains. A new cycle will start automatically.


Good luck

Green Lights flashing, Whirlpool D/Washer not responding


Well I contacted a couple of techy guys I know and they were not familiar with the dishwasher. I then called the outlet we had purchased from to see if they could refer us to a service technician. I explained what I wanted and the woman on the phone asked what the problem was - she then asked me to close the door of the dishwasher and hold down the start button for 30-40 seconds to see what happens, which I did. At about the 30 second mark the machine started. She said it was likely that someone had interrupted the last cycle and we had effectively reset it. It ran a further 30 seconds to complete that last part of the interrupted cycle and has been fine ever since. My wife took them a box of chocolates the next day. Shows to go ay? Kind regards Peter
