Hello daniedag,
Unfortunately, your dishwasher may have experienced a power surge when the power went off and dmaged some internal components or the control logic. There is no way of knowing the extent of your problem without a thorough diagnostics to it. It could be something as simple as a circuit borad component, stuck relay but this kind of repair is probably not something you would want to tackle yourself unless properly trained and with the proper test equipment. If you have homeowners insurance, it may cover the damage.. If not, then a service call is most likely required. Here is a link to the GE website for yopur dishwasher but your model is not PWD9200 and IS PDW9200 http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/Dispatcher

Hope this helps..

The filter is probably blocked.

It is inside the base of the machine.

Take out the filter and clean it and also clean out the filter well as that can also hold quite a bit of debris.

The Start/ reset button is part of the integrated keypad on your model and you will have to replace the whole strip.

See item 719 in this diagram.

Hope this helps. If this is different to your model then please post a comment so that I can find the correct part for your dishwasher.

Please confirm if you want to install ribbon cable that connects the keypad membrane or the cable which is hooked in the MIDDLE hole of the door. The door panel covers the main control board, detergent cup, wire harness, Smart Dispense bottle, Smart Dispense detergent sensor, and Smart Dispense pump.

The outer door panel is held in place by 12 screws (5 Phillips head screws per side and two 1/4-in. hex head screws at the bottom). The esutcheon keypad is held on by 4 screws.

Note: When removing the outer door panel, be careful not to remove the 4 screws (2 per side) holding the escutcheon to the door assembly. Remove these only to gain access to the control module, active vent, fl apper, and door interlock switch.

Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

Sounds like you have an excessive build up of hard water (mainly calcium) in it. Clean it like this: Close the detergent cup cover. Run hot water at the sink to clear cold out of the pipes. Start the machine on pots and pans/added heat. Wait about 10 minutes and open the door. If the detergent cup cover flops open, it is in the main wash. If it is still closed, let it run a few more minutes, check cup cover again, keep dong this until the cover is open. Once it is open it will be in the main wash (the longest cycle) and at that time put in about 2 cupfulls of Tang orange drink in the bottom of the tub. Tang is very high in citric acid and will clean the calcium and other hard water deposits from the tub, pump, spray arms, ect... Make sure your hot water is HOT (130 is great) and use Cascade Complete powdered detergent from now on. Should take care of it... Repeat every 6 months to keep it clean.

Open the dishwasher

Remove door panel

Remove 2 screws that holds a plastic cover by the detergent release arm

Look for a switch with 2 spade lugs attached

Make sure the 2 wires are not broken or corroded

Use a tester to verify switch opens and closes.

Replace switch and your problem should be solved
