Hello, my GE dishwasher won't start. It appears it stopped in mid-cycle because there is still water in the bottom of it and the dial was in the middle of the cycle. I have checked the circuit breakers as well as the power supply to the dishwasher with a voltmeter. What should I do next? Any advice would be appreciated.

Here are your parts

Have you tried moving the timer to different positions to see if it will start up?

Check for 120 volts across the motor at different timer positions.
If you have voltage and the motor does not run or hum then odds are the motor is toast.

Remove the doors inner panel and check the wiring.
Also check the door interlock switch (Item 803 in Section 1)

When we close it up & latch it closed, it will sometimes start & sometimes it won't. (It is rather intermittent.) Sometimes it tries to start & then quits. Sometimes it runs a couple of minutes & then stops in the middle of the cycle. It will fill up with water, it will drain water, the motor runs & sloshes the water around.

Okay, he opened it up and looked inside and there was a metal piece that presses down on two little buttons inside that had slipped down from where it should be. Apparently when you latch the door lock, it causes this metal plate to press down those two contact switches, and it was shifted out of place. He was able to move it back and it works again and I am so happy.

This is Matt's wife Tricia now writing the second paragraph by the way.

Thanks for getting back to us. Now when others search for a similar problem they will see what actually worked instead of just suggestions about what could be the cause.
