GE Profile Performance - Drying and Beeps Error
Several days ago our GE Profile GSD49300Z03 dishwasher (purchased in 1999) went bad. Here is what happened. We left the house for the evening and decided to open the dishwasher door. The cycle was about 75% completed. The following day I closed the door and noticed the blinking drying light and beeping. The washer would not complete it's cycle. I pushed the stop/reset and it would cycle to the wash and then back to blinking light and beeping sound. Well after spending several hours reading the forums on how to fix this problem I did not come to a concusion, so I called a service person to come out next Saturday to fix my dishwasher.
Still determined to fix this thing my self, I Noticed that the soap door was still closed and I was looking at it and noticed the door was pushed up a little and I saw soap detergent still in the compartment. So I got my knife out and started poking and saw the soap had turn really hard. After I carefully poked enough the door popped open. I try starting the dishwasher and it works now! I think someone had tried to put soap in an closed the door and later we had tried to restart with no luck. Owell... I feel lucky tonight because I saved a few dollars.
This may be a fix to some of the problems with the same issues. I just wanted to share my experience.

Performance - Drying and Beeps Error
Thanks a million!!!! I had the same problem - Control error with beeps. The detergent cup was so filled with dry dishwasher detergent that it could not open. I pried it open with a butter knife and pressed start/reset and it reset itself. The beeps means, "hey the detergent door is stuck!!!" I wonder how much a service repair job would have cost me since they probably would have done the same thing - and charged a fortune for it.
