Customer Question
Hi. Trouble getting my...

Hi. Trouble getting my dish washer going. The start light comes on then goes to blinking. Model number GDF-510PGD2WW. We have only had this dish washer for one year.

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?

GE

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If we can.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

It goes to standby and we have to reset it and hope that it comes on. It just started the wash cycle and we have spent half an hour trying to get it running. Is there a delay start that we do not know about?

What do you have to do to get it to work, just reset the cycle or open the door and reset?

We have tried these things. Maybe not in a set sequence.

I have it, thank you. What do you have to do to get it to work, just reset the cycle or open the door and reset?

It just started working. It’s like it is on s delayed start. This is the third time this had happened. We do not use the dishwasher often.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Any ideas? It was installed this time last year. We did not install it ourselves.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 8 months ago

When it does not start, what do you have to do to get it to work or does it just start on its own after a delay?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
We keep resetting and restarting. It goes to a steady light then to a blinking light and stays there. We then repeat these steps. It finally started after a few attempts
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 8 months ago

So when you reset it, are you just pushing buttons or do you open the door? This is a very important piece of information.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
We have done both
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
We have cancelled it. Opened the door, closed it and started it. Steady light comes and then it goes to blinking.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
We open and close the door and turn it on. Starts off with steady light then going to blinking and stays at that stage.

No problem.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 8 months ago

The door latch that has the switches in it that tell the control the door is closed has a very high failure rate. I suspect it will need to b replaced if the door is closing well. The flashing start light is indicating that the door is open.

The video at the link below shows how it is accessed for replacement!
