A dishwasher is a machine that cleans and dries dishes. GE dishwashers are known for their quality, efficiency, and reliability.

How to Reset GE Dishwasher

How to Reset GE Dishwasher

To reset GE dishwasher, you need to Press the “Start/Reset” Button. Normally, this button is on the front control panel.

Resetting a GE dishwasher is easy and does not require much work from the owner.

After waiting for at least five minutes, restart the dishwasher and load it with dishes.

Step 1: Press the “Start/Restart” pad

GE dishwashers need to be reset mid-cycle if there is a malfunction or for adding dishes. Push the Start/Reset button on any GE dishwasher that has front controls or open the door of top control and push start/reset.

Step 2: Wait for 2-5 Minute

It is recommended that you wait before opening the dishwasher and adding more dishes. You may see a blinking light while resetting; wait for the blinking light to stop before starting the GE Dishwasher again.

Do a Hard Reboot

Many a time, Simply pressing the Start/Reset button won’t reset GE dishwasher. In this case, you need to do a hard reboot.

Be careful not to perform a hard reset too often, as these are usually only for last-ditch efforts. Resetting a dishwasher is usually as easy as pushing Start/Reset. If the machine still does not work and won’t reset, reboot it by turning off power to your home for ten minutes, then turn it back on.

In order to restart a GE dishwasher, detach the power cord from the outlet. Doing so will reboot and reset the machine and should fix any problems with it.

Disconnecting power to the dishwasher is a good way to reset it when you don’t have easy access. If your main breaker isn’t accessible and there are no circuit breakers or fuses close by, find another location where you can access and disconnect power.

GE advises that you wait for 30 seconds before trying to turn the power on again, but occasionally machines may need a longer break. Keep the power off for up to 10 minutes and then restore it. Hopefully, it will reset GE Dishwasher, and you can now use it to wash dishes without any issue.

    I have a GE Dishwaster model #GDF52Opgjww, just replaced the heating element in mine. Is there a reset button to push to get the heater to work again? If so, where is it and what is it that I do.

  4. Try this for a GE Profile dishwasher. Turn off power at the correct circuit breaker. Check and re-seat the connector to the door-closed sensor switch at the top of the dishwasher. It is visible when dishwasher is pulled out a few inches. Turn power back on. That solved my flashing yellow light issue. Loose or bad connections, or wire damage from rodents, is the number 1 cause of electronics issues.

  5. All lights on control panel functioning, however lights do not blink when door is open and washer will not start. Is this a door latch issue or control board. Had to replace board a couple years ago due to lights not functioning.
