GE Dishwasher has a 817 Error Code and dead board. Went out to customer had the 817 Error code dead board customer could tell it had been leaking floor is heaping had not run into this so got back to shop and came on line and really didn't get an exact fix

Called customer and they called GE they sent them a heating element in which the old one tested good and a control board installed both pushed the buttons board lights up im thinking good to go got everything pushed back in tested it looked good as i was putting kick plate on i feel water got d/w pulled out found the leak in a hose between the diverter and the wash pump fine but now its back to the 817 error code on the new board i'll fix the leak did the flood switch trip the code and once i fix the leak how do i get the board to flip back to working condition thanks in advance

Did the new control board get water on it?

I'd fix that leak first before you do anything else.

Check your main control board Service LED, Tell us how many times its flashing in a row.

For others following your thread: To view the main control board Service LED, remove the lower access panel of the dishwasher.

--->Here's the main control board for this model: WD21X24799 Machine Control

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

D/W is fixed the diverter hose had a hole in it so it leaked into the pan which kicked in the flood mode which not sure but put it in the 817 error code got diverter in. Thinking since i had power disconnected for a period of time once power was restored it must have reset on its own dishwasher is now working properly so orginal problem was leak that kicked d/w into flood mode
