Did you have a power outage recently? They are notorious for damaging circuit boards--usually about 3-4 weeks after the power interruption strange things will either start happening or *not* happening with appliances due to damaged computer chips on the boards starting to fail. Your symptoms indicate either a blown user interface(push button panel) or a defective main control board(board with the brains on it) or both!

Model # is listed above in original post. No water underneath. If I pour water into bottom of tub, the pump will drain the water out. I can watch the water through transparent drain tubing as it pumps out. No water outside of tub anywhere. Tub drains complete and pump keeps running. If I turn off the breaker & wait 10 minutes or so, the pump will stay off until the door is reclosed or the control buttons are touched at all. Any button, its back to continuous with no led on panel lit.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Dishwasher front panel lights are all blinking in

It would help to know what the make and model of the dishwasher is.

Most likely the flood switch at the base has been activated.

My frigidaire oven door says locked and I cannot unlock it.


Reset the unit at the household circuit breaker for about 10-15 minutes. Then retry the unit. If no changes occur contact a professional technician, sounds like the door latch and/or control board need repairs.

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

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.

Can't cancel cycle without it starting


you have a few choices if the factory says that this is normal. try shutting off the breaker or unplugging the dishwasher. we use plugs when we install them to make removal easier. with the power down for a few moments, it may reset itself if its a solid state board. otherwise, let it run and then start it over again to do what you intended. its not a big problem if that is what you are stuck with for functionality. it is not a common need to reset, i would expect. check the manual too, you may need to hold the reset button for a few seconds or more.
good luck
