Like so many others, I am experiencing a problem with my GE dishwasher's smartdispense. I have ALWAYS used the SAME detergent(Cascade Complete)and still have the gumming-up issue. I noticed that the dishes were not getting clean and when I opened the smartdispense cover I could see that the detergent was gelled.

The dishwasher does not complete a cycle. It starts the cycle just fine but then it stops after one minute. It seems like it gets stuck and won't move to the next step. I do hear a slight clicking noise similar to a clock ticking, like its trying to move on, but then it stops. It clicks three times. When I open the door the "fine china" light is on even though I set it on "normal". Is there a "re-set" button?
