Customer Question

Have a brand new gdt695smj2es dishwasher. Installer ran a test cycle. Later that night when we tried to wash dishes wouldn't start. Pressing the start button causes it to beep in a "low low high" pattern, and not light up or do anything. Any ideas?
JA: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?
Customer: ge gdt695smj2es.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Hoping it doesn't need work, but its still under warranty
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Have also tried turning power off for about a minute, and pressing start and wash cycle for a few seconds so that it resets - all the lights blinked and it displayed "817". Still just low low highing me.

I solved it. Found a link to the 2012 technical service guide for a similar model, and it said that if every button works normally, but start gives 3 beeps every time you touch it, it's in demo mode, and to hold start+heated dry for 5 seconds, which fixed it.
