My GE dishwasher trips a breaker everytime I hit the start button...do you think it could be the control module? Thanks Paul
Answer Hello Paul. It could be the module. You need to check and see if the unit has a wire touching ground and causing the issue you are having with the unit.
The dishwasher is not running a full cycle in any mode and the dishes are not clean. Do you think the control board is bad?
Answer Hello Stu. Yes, if the board shuts off and does not complete the cycle, you will need to order and replace the control board in the unit.
When you push any button on the front control nothing happens. No lights come on, nothing. I'm thinking it is the module control assembly that needs to be replaced, #AP3203951. Am I correct?
Answer Hello Mary,
First check the breaker. If it is not tripped, flip it off and back on. now remove the kick panel and check inside the power connection box for burned wire nuts. If they appear to be fine, you should still pull on each wire to make sure they are secure in the wire nuts. If they are all tight and voltage is present at this point, you will need to open the inner door panel and check the door switches. If the switches are good, check for power to the control. If power is supplied to the control and not exiting the board, the board has failed. There should be a mini manual in the base of the unit. If you remove the kick panel and look up at the bottom of the tub you should see a folded piece of paper stuck between a metal heat shield and the plastic tub assembly. This will have troubleshooting information and a wiring diagram on it to assist in your repair. On this design, I would first suspect a door switch if power is getting to it.
The unit will not fill with water before it starts to wash. The water level never gets high enough to make the float valve stop the water from coming in.
Answer Hello Charley. The float switch doesn't normally shut the water off. The float switch is a flood prevention switch. The dishwasher fills on a time basis. The water level should almost touch the heating element. If it isn't filling to this level, I would suspect the water pressure or the water inlet valve WD15X10003. Sure hope this was useful in your repair. Have a great day!
