Customer Question
I have a GE...

I have a GE dishwasher and it won't drain. When I opened up the bottom kick plate I noticed a blue wire that looks like an ether net cable not connected does it need to be connected to something?

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

Where can I get the model number? I think it is only about 2-3 years old. I bought it at home depot.

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

If it is easy I will if not I would be more than happy to pay a repairman to do it.

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

No that is it.
