    Default GE dishwasher GLD4260L00SS: Lights blinking

    Model Number: GLD4260L00SS
    Brand: GE
    Age: 6-10 years

    Hello,

    I have a GE dishwasher GLD4260L00SS and I think after a power outage (not sure anymore...), 3 lights are continuously blinking: heavy wash + hot wash + hot start (I think I had start/reset + hot wash + hot start blinking before... it may have changed??). I disconnected for days then reconnected it, but still have the same issue. The blinking does not change no matter what I do or push. When I close the door, the dishwasher is making some noise, nothing else happens, except the lights keep blinking. Anybody has any idea what the problem could be?

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    Check the door switchs as a good place to start...failing that the control would be a likely suspect...

    Hello Jeff,

    Thank you so much for your quick response. I have been so busy with other things that I could not follow up with the thread. If I buy the board kit at the link you provided, and if it does not fix my problem, may I return the kit for a refund? Thanks!

    Jeff,

    I just received the parts. Installed them, but now I have the Clean light blinking instead of all the other ones. Pushing any other buttons does not do anything. Do you have any idea?

    After looking on the web... I found that the resistance plug (selector plug) from the old board (location @ CN4) must be connected back on the new board. Now.. my dishwasher is working again!!! awesome! The instructions that came with the board kit somehow mentioned the selector plug, but was not clear as what it is exactly. I think the instructions sheet should be updated to be more precise (e.g. location CN4 on the board) and circle the selector plug and you may get fewer returns for the board kit for this dishwasher. Thank you!

    I think you've just solved the mystery to replacing the tactile board, I've been suggesting the tactile board to others as well when they have your same issue, but either they say it still didn't fix it, or I get no reply back at all if it did fix it.

    Thanks Jeff for helping him, and thanks Tom for pointing that out, I will make this thread a sticky!

    If you are now having fewer returns for the boards... I should receive a discount
