Default GE Profile dishwasher tripping circuit
Model Number: Model: PDW7880J01SS   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hello,

We have a GE Profile dishwasher. I estimate that it's 7+ years old (It was in the house that we bought.)

The problem >> After completing a load of dishes, it goes completely dead. No lights on the buttons. Doesn't work at all. Then I go to the breaker box and flip the switch, and leave it off for a few minutes. I turn the circuit back on, and all the buttons light up on the dishwasher and it works fine.....

...until it completes the next load of dishes. Then it dies again. I've brought it back to life three days in a row with the breaker box trick.

What's going on? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here are your parts
Parts for GE PDW7880J01SS Dishwasher - AppliancePartsPros.com

Here is the operators manual just in case you do not have it.

I find your post a little confusing.
The title says "dishwasher tripping circuit" but you say " Then I go to the breaker box and flip the switch"
So I do not know if the unit is tripping the breaker or you are manually tripping it.

If you are manually tripping it then odds are that the control board is shot and by removing power from it you are resetting the computer on the board.

Hi,

I see what you're saying. Yeah, the dishwasher doesn't trip the circuit. At the end of it's cleaning cycle, it just goes dead. Then I go to the breaker box, flip the switch off for a minute or two. And when I flip it back on, the dishwasher comes back to life.

Some more information > when it goes dead, the little l.e.d.-type lights in all the buttons go out. But when I press the start/reset button, it'll still beep. But it won't work until I flip the switch at the breaker box again.

Is there a way that I can definitively confirm that the control board is shot?

Not that I know of.
GE likes to keep all it's tech data a secret unless you are a GE tech.

So what should I do next? Is it a safe bet to order a new control board? Or is that still kind of a shot in the dark?

I would replace the board.

I cannot think of anything else that would cause this problem.

You may want to consider getting it from AppliancePartsPros as they will let you return it if it does not fix your problem. See their return policy.
