Customer Question
Hi. Very frustrated. My...

Hi. Very frustrated. My NEW dishwasher (a year old) doesn’t work more often than it works. Have had service people here twice to get it to run. Now it won’t start. When I press start it doesn’t turn on and the start light starts flashing. When I push start for 3 seconds to cancel it cancels. But it won’t start. Had this problem in the very beginning. Is there some combination of pressing start or some other button that will reset it it???? Perhaps if I press start while standing on my head brushing my teeth??????

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

Model GDF510PGD4BB

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

If it’s a simple thing of pressing buttons differently. Otherwise will call for repair again

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

Not that I know
