Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The lights on the front panel are flashing - Dishwashers


Answers :

Hello,\015\012
\015\012Try flipping the breaker off for several minutes. This may reset the electronic glitch the dishwasher is having. If that does not work you can try to remove the ribbon cable from the touch pad and clean it with an eraser. Often times this will fix this type of issue. If that does not work, the touch pad would probably need to be replaced.\015\012

The troubleshooting papers didn't provide much guidance.

My GSD3600 GE Dishwasher will not finish/start a cycle. The washer filled with water and during the cycle I heard a pop like someone knocked something over in the kitchen. I smelled an electrical burning smell. All the lights and the buttons work on the front panel, but when I try to start I hear an electrical buzz like it is trying to start, but nothing happens and after 3 seconds the electrical buzzing stops and the lights on the panel flash. I removed the dishwasher and found that when I hit

Leak from a De Dietrich Integrated Dishwasher has caused 3 red lights on the left of the Control Panel to flash and also a Blue Light on the right hand side of the Control Panel to flash.
