Hello,

My dishwasher can start a cycle but then will just alternate between running the pump for a few seconds and then sitting and they sometimes you can hear it fill for a couple seconds. But it seems to be stuck and never actually gets started.

The lower control board either shows 3 blinks or when a relay clicks, the led goes solid for a second and then 2 blinks. After that, back to 3 blinks. Any idea on what part to investigate first?

Thanks

Hi,

Most of these GE's will start and stop the wash motor at first for sensing purposes, then after about the 5th time doing that the wash motor should run for a long time till the rinse cycle.

What happens if you continue to let it run for 90 minutes?

2x per 3 seconds=Dishwasher is in Delay Start and waiting to start a cycle. The cycle will begin once the delay expires.
3x per 3 seconds=Dishwasher is running a cycle.

If it continues to act up and flash the 2x per seconds, when its NOT in delay start, then that indicates a control board problem.

--->Here's the control board for your model you can order: WD21X24900

The dishwasher would never start a cycle after 90 minutes.

I ended up getting a different dishwasher rather than replacing parts on the current one.
