GE dishwasher has to be reset constantly
« on: August 07, 2022, 12:32:38 PM »

GE dishwasher. The board with the buttons and display was replaced about the time the warranty was up. Then a month or 2 ago it started having to be reset regularly by turning the breaker off.Eventually it wouldn't complete a load with out being reset.  I thought it was the computer board since it would shut off when it wasn't running as well. I replaced the computer board which looked a little bunt in one area.  But, it is still doing the same thing. Can I check the motor with a multimeter? What should I do next?

Thanks

Hello,

You probably have voltage that is leaking to ground.  This is easiest to accomplish by a small water leak in the dishwasher getting electronics wet. Also your dishwasher may not be properly grounded.   There is a current sense module CSM, on this dishwasher that works like a GFCI.  It allows it to be reset by cycling the house power, which you are doing, and is not the solution.
