Having problems with your GE Dishwashers ?

No power not coming on. circuit braker is not kicked.


Answers :

Start with the simple things and work your way from there. You will be amazed how many people call a plumber who flips a breaker or simply clears a stuck float valve (for $80 minimal fee).\015\012
\015\012If no lights are coming on. \015\012
\015\012Check if your float valve is jammed. \015\012
\015\012The valve is a safety feature to stop the machine from over filling. If anything gets under the valve it will jam open and stop the machine.\015\012Look inside the machine on the floor will be a small float valve. Looks like a small upside down cup. Lift it and clear anything from underneath. \015\012
\015\012Not the float valve ?\015\012
\015\012Check the door interlock latch.\015\012
\015\012Much like a washing machine a dishwasher will only operate with the door closed (or when it thinks it is closed!). There is a metal tab that engages a switch in the door. This is the same switch that activates as you operate the handle to open the door. If it is misaligned it will not signal the machine that the door is closed and the machine will not operate. \015\012
\015\012You can check this by overriding the locking tab. Put a screwdriver in the door latch and press the switch. You should see the lights come on and power flow to the machine. \015\012
\015\012Note: if the machine is in run mode you will get water spraying. \015\012
\015\012To fix this problem bend the tab to properly engage the switch. Or if necessary loosen the screws retaining the switch and move it to correctly align with the tab.\015\012
\015\012Not it?\015\012
\015\012OK now you are into electronics. \015\012
\015\012First is quite simple. Some units have an internal fuse to protect the control panel. Check that first. Take your time and take care. Turn the breaker off. \015\012
\015\012The control panel is screwed in place. Remove the screws and gently remove the control panel. Take care not to have parts of the door latch fall out or springs drop out etc. On newer units it is very simple as it is just a circuit board. Look for the fuse and check that it is OK. Replace if necessary with correctly rated thermal fuse.\015\012

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.

SHU 5316 UC dishwasher by bosch. I think it is from about 1998 or 99. It blew a circuit breaker yesterday. I reset the circuit braker, but it won't even power on. It may have burned something out. We replaced the control board 2 years ago. Please tell us: 1. Is it worth fixing again, or just replace? 2. Any suggestios? Maybe the pump has shorted? THANKS SO MUCH!! Mark


Hi Mark -There's no internal fuse in this dishwasher, so if there's no power you may well be looking at a new control unit and probably another major component as well, depending on what caused the overload or short. The most likely ... Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher

We have a KitchenAid KEBC147KSDS06 24" conv. oven. After putting it through a clean cycle, I tried to preheat it to conv, bake @ 350 deg. The display comes up normally and the fan runs, but after 5 sec. the temp disappears from the display and 'Lo' appears in its place. The conv. fan continues to run but neither upper nor lower element heats. Following a suggestion, I tried to reset the oven by turning off its circuit breaker and powering back up, but it did not correct the problem.


It depends how long you had the self-clean function running. The oven is known to overheat and damage the thermostat during self-clean.\015\012\015\012See postings on some user forums.\015\012\015\012 ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS02SRSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

I have a GE Quiet Power 3 that has completly died. I cannot get a light to come on or anything to beep when pressing buttons. I checked the circuit breaker and outlet and they are both working fine. I tried pressing and holding the reset button on the front control panel and nothing. It seems to have just died at 2 years old. Anyone have a solution? GE wants $80 just to look at it.
