I have a GE Triton XL model #GSD6600G00BB that kicked the 20amp panel breaker sometime during the cycle. I reset the breaker and the dishwasher came on but it just seemed to be trying to drain. The motor never would come on. I removed power and ohmed out switchs and coils/solenoids. I found the float sw. micro got smoked- the arm and the insides of the sw. were burned. I suspected water got on the sw. and it shorted to ground thus kicking the breaker (I think that because I couldn't find any seal on the float itself). So I replaced the micro which is using the N.O. contact??? and now I get the motor to run but I'm not getting any water. I'm not getting any voltage to the water intlet coil/solenoid. It reads about 1130 ohms disconnected (seems high to me for AC). I removed the front panel (didn't find the tech sheet) and found relays soldered onto the pcb. Help please? How can I work my way back?
