My GE gdt680sgh4bb dishwasher will not start. All status

Customer Question

My GE gdt680sgh4bb dishwasher will not start. All status lights look correct and the machine worked just two days ago. What's up with that?

So the start light doesn't flash now?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
That is correct. But other than the other status lights (seemingly properly) staying lit, nothing else is happening either.
Expert:  AppTech8579 replied 9 months ago.

Okay, sounds like the door switch may be faulty here. Check the switch for continuity with a multimeter. If no continuity replace the door switch. If the door switch tests continuity the control board is at fault and will need to be replaced.

There is no indication that the door switch is not indicating closed. Beforehand, I may have thought that too as the start light was flashing (including the yellow one on the front of the door). But now it does not flash either.So how do I get to the switch to check the continuity?

rest on the floor while you disconnect the user interface control wire harness from the control panel.

Pull off the outer door panel and control panel.

Unplug the door switch wire harness from the latch assembly.

Release the locking tabs and pull the door latch assembly out of the inner door panel.
