Customer Question

We have an old GE Potscrubber 900 dishwasher (model #GSD 900D-02) that has been fine for over 20 years. One day, it just didn't turn on. When the dial is turned to "on," there is a click indicating it's moved from "off" to "on," then nothing. No motor noise or grinding or humming or anything. We've checked the circuit breaker, and it has not been tripped. So it doesn't look like a power issue, unless it's within the dishwasher's electronics. I suppose it could also be a problem with the switch (round on/off dial). Can you help us troubleshoot this? Thanks for any light you can shed.

Secondly, I do not know your skill level so please try and let me know if I am going beyond your knowledge or comfort zone thanks! I strive for a 5 star rating from everyone especially our JA members.


Check the door switch to see if it is working correctly. If it is then you very likely have a timer issue and the timer would be defective. There is a chance that a wire could be broken to the timer. That would be difficult to find and trouble shoot, but I would start at the door switch and go from there.
