  • sledger Jul 04, 2008

    GE dishwasher start-up problem. The previous guy told me to hold down the reset button for 30 seconds. I held down the start/reset button on front panel for 30 seconds. As usual, it started and then stopped. The cycle light and the option light were flashing at the same time - then it sounded like the pump shut down, but the lights continued to blink. Then the lights went out after about 30 seconds. This dishwasher is just over one year old.

Dishwasher starts in any type of cycle, runs for a minute, then shuts off as the lights blink out.


in general your wash motor can cause that. It gets old and you can hear the wash motor making a rumbling noise when it turns on. The increased load with cause a thermal coupler to turn the unit off.

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

GE Dishwasher no water upon start, humming, blinking lights


Seems like the anti flood is activated when water (even a small amount) appears on the bottom of the machiene. This is usualy a leaking pipe but can also be caused by a clogged pipe. Most machiens do have a plastic pipe that (from the flat water tank) feeds water to the bottom of the machiene in case of an internal fault. The anti flood is normaly a polystireen float with micro switch on the base of the washer. This automatically puts the outlet pump on to drain the water. The machiene does not work exept the outlet pump in this mode.

GE Profile PDW7880G00SS Dishwasher will not Start


Re: My dishwasher start light flashes and the timer display is blank.

That is a fault condition, if the display is blank it is probably a faulty control board.

Unplug the appliace from main, or trip circuit braker to cut power for ten minutes.

If display is still blank on startup, then replace the timer control assembly.

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.

Dishwasher starts for seconds but, then shuts off


Check that water supply is available and that water inlet valve is operational. Filling unit is usually the first step of any wash program and dishwasher is shutting down because float valve is not actuated.

Solis Palazzo - stuck in descale mode?


Are you refilling the tank during this process? You need to let in run dry, and then the buttons flash. Then, refill the tank with clean water, and let the tank run dry again.
