    Default GE - GDF520PSF2SS wont start...tried a few things already

    Model Number: GDF520PSF2SS
    Brand: GE
    Age: 1-5 years

    Hello all,

    Unit is 5 years old. Started out not filling up and pulling the detergent out of the holder. Pulled the float switch out and cleaned it with vinegar and peroxide. Freed up the switch it was stuck.

    After that it worked a few times then the start button wouldnt start the unit.

    I replaced the door latch switch no change.
    Ive replaced the interface control panel with no change.

    I'm not sure how to diagnose it further. Holding start and select cycle for 5 seconds makes all LEDs blink 9 times then the lock controls light illuminates.

    The only thing left to change is the unit control board?

    I'm wondering if I should just buy another unit...

    Thank you!

    Hi Corey,

    Open the control board cover and check the Service LED on the control board. If the Service LED is blinking, count the number of blinks between pauses. If the LED is not lit replace the control board.

    Here's the control board for your model:
    Control Board WD21X22276

    Here's the video that show you how to remove the cover to access the main control board, and Service LED on it: Main control board access video

    Let us know what you find.
