Recently started having problems with our dishwasher, GE GDT655SSJ0SS. When I would go to start it, there would be a yellow light that beeps continuously 3 times and the machine doesn't start. I've reset the breaker for the machine multiple times in the past but that solution doesn't work anymore. Just tried to replace the machine control board yesterday and I'm still having this problem.

Wondering what other solutions there 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: WD21X24901 Machine Control

To view the STATUS LED, remove the lower access panel of your dishwasher. You DO NOT have remove the control board from its metal casing when you view the STATUS LED.

When you have that panel lowered down turn the breaker back ON to your dishwasher. When viewing it leave all the electrical connectors to it plugged in.

Lets make sure you are getting 120 volts to the machine control board.

You will need to take the voltage reading from the 120 VAC SUPPLY electrical connector, just remove the 120 VAC SUPPLY electrical connector and put your meter probes in it, and your meter should read 120 Volts.

If your meter reads 120 volts, and the STATUS LED is STEADY OFF, then your machine control board is defective.

See it on the right side of this photo below? Coming off the two yellow wire nuts, I circled it in red.:)

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

So if you don't have it Delay Start, then your machine control board you got if faulty, return it to the place you got it from and they will exchange it for you with another new one.
