GE GSD5930 D00WW

Looking at problems discussed on internet I have concluded that I probably have need for a sequence switch for my GE dishwasher.  During a wash cycle, it started flashing drying and beeping in sequence to the flashing. 

Removed power and tried a number of different things but always ended up with dry/beep after doing a clear and then having washing flash for 30 seconds.

Noticed when I had the front assembly off that the plastic flap that is in the vent, is broken.  So no way whatever activates it can activate it.

Think this will cause any additional problem if I get the sequence switch fixed??

 

Thanks,

 

Jim

Sure that steam or water splashes haven't entered the door interior and ruined the control board?

If you mean that this thing is broken, it could well be the original culprit to your problem. What ever the flap is that you're talking about, if it is obviously broken or misplaced, it should be fixed before further troubleshooting can be accurately done.

This part http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=270522 only opens the flap so dryer heat can exhaust.  Look at part above and what is broken is the left side which attaches to a spring that pulls the flap open when dryer is activated.

Don't know if I broke it when taking the door apart or if it happened earlier.  If earlier, I suppose steam could have ruined the control board.  How can I determine that???

Apparently too much. Actually up to the point of overSUDSing.

Any help out there as to how I should trouble shoot this problem. 

 

1st - during wash cycle, drying started flashing then beeps sounded in step with the drying light flashing.  Cleared the flashing light then sequence went to Washing for about 30 seconds and then returned to flashing drying lights and beeping.

Removed power over night and when reapplied, the situation was the same.  I've reached the conclusion that I may need a new sequence switch.  Could be other things too I guess, Need someone's help here.

 

2nd, reference above about the vent flap,  is this a contributing factor to the dishwasher screwing up?  If so, how can I isolate where the problem might lie?

 

Thanks

I think it is the best to both your peace (and my torn-apart piece) of mind that someone else took this over... or under...  Geez, perhaps I should join an AAA group.

Cheers!

Sequence switch is a common troublemaker on these. Replace it. If, by some rare fluke, that doesn't fix it, you can return it for a refund.
