Im having issues with my GE Cafe dishwasher not starting, The light on the key pad illuminates when pressed however the dishwasher will not start. Could it possibly be the door switch? If so what is the procedure for testing the switch?
Thank You

Here's some video's to help you out. Also does all the buttons on your touchpad work just not the start button?

All of the buttons appears to be working...the dishwasher just will not start when door is closed.

More then likely your touchpad is bad or your main computer board. Look under the unit or behind the panel for the tech sheet it should show you how to ohm test the touchpad. Check for 120v at the main control board from tan to white with the door switch tripped. Ohm test the door switches for continuity.
