My GE dishwasher stopped running about two weeks ago. Typical close the door, hit start, beeps three times because it doesn’t sense the door is closed. Went and got a new door latch, installed, worked like a dream. Done, right? Nope. Today it is doing the same thing. Did all the normal things, cycled power, checked to make sure the connection to the new latch didn’t come lose, etc. Nothing. It seems unlikely that the new latch has broken already, but I am not sure what else it could be?

Hi,

--->Check your machine control board STATUS LED, Tell us how many times its FLASHING in a row, or if its STEADY ON or STEADY OFF.

--->Here's the machine control board for your model: WD21X24900

Restore Power, then make sure the door harness connector is attached to the bottom of the control board casing connector when you view the STATUS LED light, Also make sure the 120 volt connector to it in the front is still attached to it also.
