Answers :

A power surge has occurred unfortunately. this surge has fried the control module and, you will need to replace this module asap.

I would check the motor as well. it may have took a hit as well. test the continuity of the element as well.
Replacing the control module didn't work for me. I found another forum where the expert suggested replacing the keypad. It's about a $70 part (beware the shops that are trying to get $200+ for it; MSRP is like $110).

I have a newer model GE dishwasher. About a couple of weeks ago we lost power to home. When power was returned the dishwasher was making a high pitch sound and power was not returned to the front display. I had to remove a black/white wire from front of the display to make the high pitch sound go away. Do you have any solutions to make the high pitch so go away and for power to be restored to the front display? Thank you.


Hello\015\012\015\012High pitch sound comes when the main control also known as the electronic board goes bad and needs replacement. Please try to blow air with hair dryer on the display just to check if that'll solve the problem. Hope yo ... GE 24 in. GLD5560LSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

After a power outage, that occured while the dishwasher was running, the lights come on and there is a high pitched noise. Then all the lights go off and the motor sounds like it is starting. However there is no water and the heating elemant comes on. The lights on the front; china/crystal, normal wash, clean and heated dry, all come on as if the computer is confused and trying to run them all simultaneously.

Just turned the dishwasher on at the wall and tap after it's been sat off for a day. It's done one cycle (eco) and now doesn't seem to be doing anything but flashing. The two lights flashing are the power and eco lights. I have tried turning it off on the console but it turns itself back on and continues flashing. It sounds like it's whirring but I can't hear water. It did have a small leak when we first plumbed it in if that makes any difference?

How to diagnose? My Kenmore won't run. First it was flashing the clean light 7 times, so I figured out how to reset ("High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"/"High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"), but when I try to run a wash, it sounds like it's not getting water into the tub. When I checked it several minutes later, it was in "Cancel" mode, making a sound like it was draining (or trying to drain), then the clean light started flashing 7 times again. Clearly, the machine has something wrong but I don't know where to

Bosch SHX33A: lights come on properly in response to buttons, it has power. Close door, it makes the normal startup sounds, then water flows in. Normally, at this point washer starts into normal cycle. Instead, it just sits there and nothing happens. Forever. Not a matter of patience: we've left it in that state all night long. Have flipped power circuit and started over, everything else I can think of to kick-start it, no change.


Hi\015\012\015\012The issue seems to be with the motor or the door latch\015\012assembly going bad and should be replaced.

Baumatic (BKD62SS or BKD62W .3) Dishwasher will not do a normal load but will run in a strange start up mode I found. When I press the power button, select a cycle, then press start the dishwasher will no longer do anything. 5 seconds after pressing start it will make a light hum noise, a little like heating water. After about a minute the dishwasher won't have done anything. It will then beep 30 times with the third led on the set of four (don't know what it means) will flash a lot. The beeps t

My Frigidaire Dishwasher PLD4375RFC is showing 3 blinking lights at the same time when I flipped the power at the circuit breaker off-on: High Temp Wash, Air Dry on the touch pad and PF on the display. It would not respond to anything that I tried. All blinking lights are off and machine does nothing when I open and close the door. Flipped the circuit breaker off-on again to repeat the sequence. I replaced the controller board, as recommended by the appliance guy since he checked and said ele

The electronic panel on the top of the door doesnt light up anymore and is unresponsive, when the power is turned on, the machine makes a sound like its running or draining or something, but nothing is happening. This all started after a potential electrical disruption following a power outage. Perhaps there is a fuse or some relatively easy way to fix this? or am I screwed and should just call a repair man. Thanks for your suggestions, Brodie

GE ZBD6880KOOSS This just happened this morning. The dishwasher is less than 2 yrs old. The dishwasher will not operate, the panel lights do not come one and it simply make a continual low pitch tone sound. Do you know what could be the problem?


This is an unusual failure. The humming could be a motor (or valve) that has power but isn't moving. But that doesn't explain the (absence of) lights on the control panel. I suggest you call a professional. ... GE Monogram® ZBD6880NSS Stainless Steel Dishwasher

I have a mdd8000aws dishwasher. After a power outage (2 days) the power came back on, and the bottom drawer no longer works. It still make the chiming noise when the drawer is opened, but the control panel is not fully lit up and the washer will not start in any mode. The lights seem to flicker for a short moment and then they all stay very lightly lit up. Is this just a bad control panel or is there some other circuit that needs replaced? BTW, the top drawer works perfectly.

Dead dishwasher? I have an Prima LXP600 dishwasher that doesn't work - no power light, no beeps, no anything. I've changed the fuse and used different power sockets. Is there anything that I can investigate, or alternatively is it likely to worth calling an engineer? The machine looks almost unused (was in a repossessed house that I bought, so no history), so I'd like to think that it's got some life left in it!
