I have a GE dishwasher that doesnt work. I have tried resetting it by shutting off at the breaker, and flipping the on/off switch that is connected to it. I have tried replacing the circuit board and yet it beeps once, two lights that come on (heated dry and wash), stay lite up for about twenty seconds and then turn off. I was told (by someone here) that it was the circuit boards, but that has failed as beeps once, the two lights come on, and then turn off after twenty seconds. There is a piece that is on one of the boards that when taken off the two lights dont come on but the clean light comes on and still, I cant do anything and the light wont shut off. This has been a cost of 160 bucks so far and I have no more funds to spend on this freaking GE. Even the maker doesnt know what to do...
Ok, I just replaced a board that was suggested to be the problem and with no change to the performance of my washer, I am skeptical on going with this suggested fix. The board that I just replaced is part number WD21X10247. Its two boards and I am not sure I can get a refund on their purchase. Therefor I ask without insult, are you sure this is the problem?
You replaced both of these boards?
yes both of them, twice, as the first one sent did not provide me with any electrical notification at all. Meaning, the lights nor the beeps were not working...
I think what you are referring to were the wires going from one of the new boards to the other new board, correct?
If you try to start a cycle, say by pressing any wash sequence, do the corresponding lights come on? I know you may have addressed this already, but I'm trying to get as much info as I can. So, if your door is closed, and you press normal, what happens?
Once I give the washer power, either from the circuit breaker being turned on or I flip the switch, it beeps once, the two lights come on, stay on for twenty seconds, and then shut off. During the time the lights are on and off, nothing can be done. No sounds, no lights, nothing. But there is a mod on one of the boards that if I take it off, the two lights turn off and the wash light is on and will not or can not be turned off. But it does make sound when the other buttons are pushed. Does this help?lol
On page two of this PDF, try to enter the diagnostics for me.
Please hold on as I try these for you...
The unit is unresponsive to the testing. To check the door switch, I need to know what or where the door switch is located...
I have no ohms reader... Any alternatives for me?
Also, page one of that PDF you sent me shows me the door switches doesnt it?
Well, without power putting the two lines together wouldnt do anything. Now once I powered on the unit, it will short out one of the boards I just replaced or will blow the circuit or shock the living shi t out of me. Witch will it be?
The two switches also have little buttons on them (both are popped out), that you can push in and they pop right back out. Does this tell me anything?

Okay, its working and wasnt the two boards after all. It was the door switches not getting hit when the door closed. I put my finger in between the switches and it started filling the tub. So, now trying to find out what is missing from the door that hits the two switches... That second PDF link you sent shows this doesnt it?
Parts numbered 1002 and 837 are missing and are what hit the two switches when the door is shut...
I will most likely get it and send back the two boards that I purchased. I do wish you the best at what you do, as the other guy did fail and never would reply. Thanks for the friendly service and I will be back if I am ever in need of help again.
