SOURCE: DIshwasher Cycle TIme INcreases by 20 minutes over two years

Try cutting the breaker off for 5 min, This will reset the control. The issue is in order for a dishwasher to clean the dishes properly the water in the dishwasher needs to be at least 120 deg f. If its not the dishwasher keeps adding more time with the heater on to try to achieve this temp. The dishwasher only uses about 1 gallon of water per fill so if the water heater is a ways away or the temp is not hot enough, the water temp in the dishwasher will not reach 120.

SOURCE: GE Nautilus won't drain after Rinse Cycle

Check disposer plug. If a garbage disposer has been recently installed, it is possible the disposer drain plug was not removed. The drain plug is a plastic piece in the disposer that blocks the hole where the dishwasher hose connects. Also check the hose connected to the disposal. Mine apparently had a kink in it. When I straightened the hose the dishwasher drained at full speed (I recently had a plumber re-route a hot waterline. He must has bent the hose). Hope this helps. If not go to the GE website. That's where I found my answer.

SOURCE: GE Nautilus GSD4200 Dishwasher will not wash/drain

The average life of a dishwasher is 7-10 years. The symptoms strongly indicate a motor pump problem and my personal opinion is if that is the case youd be better to put the money toward a new dishwasher.

When I hit the start button on my GE dishes washer the light in the front is blinking and it will not go on


This sometimes happens when there is a problem with the door latch system or switch. Your door may be closed but the control still thinks it is open. Check the door latch and switch alignment. GE had a problem with the doors dropping slightly about a year ago. the latch looks like a arrow head on top of the door center that pushes into the switch that is mounted on the dishwasher body. If the arrow head is slightly lower than the part on the body you will get the exact problem you are having. GE has hinge shims that they install to raise the door up slightly to fix the problem. Not sure your dishwasher is one of these without a model number.

How do I get my ge dishwasher to run? the lights


Hello there and welcome to fixya
If electrical power is available to the dishwasher but the appliance doesn't run, the problem is likely to be a defective door switch, timer, or selector switch. Make sure to turn off the power to the dishwasher before attempting any repairs
To solve a door switch problem, you may be able to adjust the door latch's strike slightly, using a screwdriver
then make sure the door closes securly, if this doesent work
please check the timer as follows
Dishwasher timer concerns can be classified into two general categories: the timer cannot be advanced manually and appears to be stuck or intermittent automatic timer advancement.

1. The timer dial cannot be advanced manually and appears to be stuck. Stuck timers are generally caused by objects that prevent the detergent cup from opening, or by a sticky substance between the timer dial and the control panel.
  • Objects that prevent the detergent cup from opening: If your timer will not advance, open the dishwasher door and check for items that may be blocking the detergent cup.

    Also, check the detergent cup:

    • It should be fully closed at the start of a cycle.

    • It should be fully open at the end of the cycle.
    • Almost fully open between main wash and final rinse.

    If it is in any other position, try to open or close the cup while at the same time rotating the timer. This should free it up. To prevent a reoccurrence, make sure nothing blocks operation of the detergent cup when the dishwasher door is closed and operating.


  • Sticky substances like orange juice that get between the timer knob and the front of the control panel on some models will bond the timer knob to the control panel. If you have this condition, it will be virtually impossible to rotate the timer knob while gently pressing the knob in toward the dishwasher. It will rotate normally if the knob is gently pulled away from the dishwasher while rotating the knob.

    This problem can be solved by gently pulling the knob away from the control panel and cleaning behind the knob with a damp cloth. Do not use excessive force because the knob is attached to the control panel on models affected by this problem. If this operation cannot be performed, service should be contacted to repair the problem.
2. Intermittent automatic timer advancement. This can be described as the timer can be advanced manually, but it does not advance automatically in spots for up to 30 minutes.
  • This is almost always a normal condition and always occurs on models with a "Delay Start" feature.

    Delay start timers increment or advance a couple of degrees once every minute or so during most of the cycle. However, during certain parts of the cycle they increment once every 30 minutes. This gives the dishwasher time to do the job of cleaning your dishes. The long increment times occur during "Delay Start", "Hot Start", "Normal Wash" and "Dry" cycles.

    The timer will not move at all during these delay periods. This is normal operation and service is not needed. If you notice delay times substantially longer than 30 minutes, replace the timer
  • Also ensue that you are getting adequate water pressure and the unit is getting water inside and that the water is at the right temperature 140 is the min. for most units
  • Please check the above and let me know what you have found so i can continue to help there is a lot of things to check but these that i have provided are the most common thing that need to be checked first ok?

My Maytag QuietSeries 400 dishwasher won't start. Sometimes 88 flashes on the display and that's all. What does that mean? Model # MDB7601AWB


Dishwasher will not start Is the door open or unlatched?
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if it believes the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons, etc), interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure.

Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.

Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob? (Some Models)
The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.

Is the control lock option activated?
Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for three to five seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.

Is the delay start option activated?
To cancel the delay and cycle, press Cancel/Drain.

Has the motor stopped for less than 10 minutes?
The motor may have stopped due to an overload. If this is the case, the motor will automatically reset itself within 5-10 minutes.

Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing?
Opening the door or interrupting the power can stop the cycle. Close the door and press Start/Resume. If the Start/Resume indicator flashes three times when you press Start/Resume, the dishwasher is waiting for you to open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door, and then press Start/Resume.
On models where the controls are on top of the door be sure to close the door within 3 seconds of pressing the Start/Resume to start or resume the dishwasher cycle.

Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.

No water goes into dishwasher. Dishwasher has only been used 2times. Came new with house 3.6 years ago. Pulled front panel off...everything appears to be connected motor fan runs.


I've experienced the same thing. Try very slowly rotating timer dial, click by click, until the water starts. Sometimes 3 or 4 clicks will start water. (You're advancing the clock.) Usually water starts in before the dial points to, "Short Wash." If this doesn't work, advance the dial to, "Off," unlock and open the door, reset, close, the soap dispenser, close and lock the door, and slowly advance the dial until the unit starts. I think this problem is a clock to pump issue and what I've described does a reset of the system. This happens to me once or twice per month. Poor engineering but still better than buying a new machine...at least 'till now.

Triton XL detergent dispenser won't stay closed


Well this is not a solution by any means but I would just put the tablet or powder directly into the machine-just "chuck it in". It will work just the same. The dispenser itself isnt truly necessary.

Cleaning Cycle not Starting


Please provide the model number and the approximate age of the dishwasher.
If this diswasher uses a turning dial to select the cycle, which turns as the dishwasher progresses, I strongly suspect that this timer has failed and needs replacement. Especially since the soap door never opens. Does the dishwasher drain during and at the end of the full cycle?

Dishwasher door will not open.tried running it another cycle and still nothing.It is a GE profile with the latch that you just push in. The latch/handle seems stiff.


The plastic latch release inside the door handle is broken. Most likely one of the pins holding it in place has broken.

First go to your local dishwasher supplier and look at a similar brand (GE Profile in my case) and see how the mechanism works. Next, get a thin pair of siccors, pull the dishwasher handle down and slid the siccors into the opening above the handel and push the tab holding the door closed up so it will release.

Once the door is open, remove the inside of the door to get to the latch. Remove the plastic latch release and order a new one.
