Customer Question
Hello. We have...

Hello. We have a GE dishwasher (model BDF520PGJB13). The AutoSense button keeps coming on by itself long after the dishwashing cycle has stopped and it attempts to was the dishes again. How do we get it to stop doing this?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

We’ve had it just a bit over a year.

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

No, we just want the button to stop turning itself on.

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

No; it’s my mother’s machine and she doesn’t want the dishwasher to be wasting water on dishes that have just been washed.
