Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a GE dishwasher with front control panel and at first the wash and dry lights stayed on and it was beeping every 30 sec. when I turned the breaker off for the required 30 sec. the lights started flashing and it is still beeping. The control panel seems to be frozen as it is not working and wont do anything.. everything was working fine before this. I bought it at Home Depot on 3/14/07 and had it installed by a licened electricion. Help

    The lock light is on and we have unplugged the appliance with no success in remedying the problem. We are unable to unlock and therefore can not use the dishwasher.

Won t stop beeping


if it's just continuously beeping, then you may have a shorted control board. This isn't an error code, so if it keeps beeping, you may need to replace the control board itself.

Edgestar DWP60ES prematurely ending wash cycle, will not drain properly, beeps alot


most likely the dishwasher has a minor leak in the base under the wash sump. this could be tripping the flood switch which causes the pump to run continuously. when the leak dries up you are able to start normally until the leak trips the flood switch once again.

Check for leaky door seal or hose. see edgestar site for instructions on getting to the area under the sump. make sure dishwasher is disconnected from mains when working on it.

I can't get the control panel to reset. The wash cycle light comes on but it just beeps and the dishwasher won't start. I press the start button and it stops beeping for a minute but it still...


II might need the actual model number. However, you can go to page 9 on this manual and check if the flashing options can fix the problem. I am assuming you have already tried to turn the power off and back on.

The ohter thing to try is the reset sequence. Within 6-7 secs press High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry. All lights should light up, press Start button to exit.

The Drying light flashes and the unit beeps about once per second. At the same time the unit acts like it is washing (sounds of water washing insiide. The bottom is oompletely full of water.


so its beeping and flashing once per second correct this beeping and flashing is an error code that your unit is giving blinking lights or beeping sounds may indicate a problem with the dishwasher caused by power surges. To correct the problem, try pressing the "Start/Reset" pad to reset the dishwasher. If the problem persists, reset (reboot) the control by turning off the circuit breaker supplying the dishwasher for 30 seconds. Turn the circuit breaker back on and the dishwasher should function normally if you still have the flashing and beeping message me back Im going through the error code book as I type this if it still persists after you turned off the power then back on message me back with the number of beeps within 60 seconds as well as the number of flashing lights for instance if it does it every second or once every 5 seconds also if you have any further questions message me back them as well and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situaitons Thanks Rick

My ge quiet power 3 dishwasher will not start, the normal wash and dry lights come on initially but then go off. Still will not work. Any ideas?


I have the same problem. If I turn the circuit breaker off (for 30 seconds) then turn it back on, the lights will light up, but the controls don't work. After several minutes, the lights go out again.

GE GLD5560 won't start


Although this post is old, I will help anyone else that is searching for the answer. I too had this problem but after looking at the schematics for this dishwasher, I could see where the problem was.
First, open the door and remove the eight screws that hold the inside cover to the front door on. BE CAREFUL. There are wires attached from the front panel of the door to the inside panel for the soap dispenser. Close the inside panel by slowly raising it up into its closed position and locking into place. Looking at the front panel from the inside, there is a black box at the top with a white PLASTIC PIN. This pin activates the "CLOSED" signal to the control unit. Push and HOLD the white pin DOWN until the system resets. If this does not work, you may need a new unit which runs about $6. After reseting the system, raise the front panel slightly and press and hold RESET/START for 5-6 secs. Now, with a second person holding the inner liner against the machine tightly, I started a cycle and it worked fine. Unlock the inner panel and slowly lower back down and replace the 8 screws.
It's really very simple 10 min fix. the reason this happens is due to the flawed design of the SWITCH PIN, which is not rigid enough. It tends to move side to side and become stuck. A better quality PIN assembly would solve this issue for GE forever.
Have fun.

Dose not finnish washing and starts bleeping and start light keep flahing. water is hot by have not dryed


Neighbor had a similar problem with a GE dishwasher except it wouldn't start and kept beeping when door was closed. So the door was left closed, and while it was beeping, turned off the circuit breaker that fed power to it. Waited about 30 seconds, turned circuit breaker back on, bleeping had stopped, dishwasher was reset. Normal and heated dry were already selected, (since I had tried pressing those two before all this to force a reset), then pressed start and it ran again. Hope this might help you.

Blinking lights on control panel


Same issue, machine is about 30 days past waranty. Door switch broke, but of course they (GE repair) do not fix the switch, you have to order the Escutcheon Body (whole panel) to fix ~$350 total.
