Having problems with your GE Dishwashers ?

Cycle stops with pump running continuously- system monitor shows only "normal" and "heated dry". How can I find the cause and correct it

\015\012Looks like the float switch is activated. This is telling the dishwasher that it is flooded and it tries to dump water by running the drain pump.

\015\012Is the dishwasher empty when the normal and heated dry leds light up?
Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle.This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method

Kenmore Ultra Wash Model 665 - 158* Front panel not working properly. Pressing Normal does not light that option. The only option that lights is "Quick Rinse", pressing this lights that option and also the "No Heat Dry" light. After a few seconds the lock light comes on. Looks to me that the "No Dry Heat" button is stuck on, which causes all the other things to happen Is there a way to fix this?

Maytag DWU6402AAB dishwasher hums but motor does not run. I've taken the inside apart down to the disk-shaped impeller. It turns freely so the pump and motor are not stuck. When control knob is turned motor hums at the places where it normally should run. The water valve & heating coil seem to be operationg normally. i assume the next step is to test the motor &/or motor relay. Is this correct and how do I do that?

My accusense light keeps coming on and blinks continuously. I tried the heat-dry, normal sequence and it would reset to 2 minutes. After the 2 minutes cycle, the accusensor blinking would begin again. Then I tried holding the heat-dry button in for 5-seconds. This looked like it worked so we set a normal cycle without heat-dry. Äll looked good, but a few minutes in, the normal light was off, the accusensor was blinking again and the heated-dry was on again! Is the unit possessed? Other id

I have a GE dishwasher model GLDL560N10SS. I noticed a burning smell coming from it the other day and then realized that although I can hear water running into the dishwasher when I start it, it never actually runs in the sense that the water is pushed through the various outlets to wash the dishes. I'm assuming that it is because the unit is dry and the heating element is still coming on that it is causing a burning smell. If I open the unit and reset it, it pumps the water back out into the si
