That recall has nothing to do with the energy saver switch problem.

 

The recall is about the rinse agent dispensers leaking and causing the wiring to get mushy and deteriorate and short out causing fires.

Correct.  Only the really old bottom of the line GE dishwashers with a slide switch or a toggle switch for the drying heater are the ones that were recalled for the switch overheating and possibly being a fire hazard.  Pushbutton  switches were never in the recall. GE Factory Service did a ton of these reworks back 10-15 years ago in apartment buildings. It must have been nice for a technician to spend all day or at least half a day doing nothing but these recalls in one apartment complex and getting 60 or 70 completed calls in one day with no driving time. That will boost a technician's productivity reports!  Too bad Sears doesn't get more of these types of calls.

I thought it might have been a recall because I've got a few rocker switch kits that include splice on spade connectors and a new humidity seal for those pushbutton models.

Here's the text of GE service bulletin DD 02-00 that seems to pertain:
 
 
N.D. 525-01
GE Appliances
General Electric Company
Appliance Park, Louisville, KY 40225
Service Bulletin
DISHWASHERS DD 02-00
CYCLE SELECTOR SWITCHES
MAY 2000
DISHWASHER CYCLE SELECTOR SWITCHES
Model Families: GSD1920, GSD2100, GSD2200, GSD3100, GSD3200, GSD3300
Pump out and/or no water complaints have
been received on the above dishwasher model
families. The cause of the problem can usually
be traced to the connections between the wire
harness and the cycle selector switch. These
models have pushbutton cycle selector
switches with pink insulated harness terminals.
Poor wire crimps on the pink insulated termi-nals can cause a high resistance connection
and terminal heating. Excessive heat will cause
the plastic switch housing to soften. This in turn
allows the switch terminal to push out of the
back of the switch, opening the drain solenoid
and/or water valve circuit. The open circuit
prevents any further heating. Technicians
sometimes report this as a burned out or
melted switch.
The proper fix for the pump out and/or no water
problem is to replace the pushbutton switch
and the pink insulated terminals on the wires
connected to the switch. The pink insulated
terminals are indicated in the illustration.
Product service has kits for the repair. The kits
include a switch andattached short harness
assembly that is to be spliced into the existing
harness with butt connectors provided in the
kit. Use all insulated terminals provided, do not
re-use original pink insulated terminals.
Three different kits are available to accommo-date the different switch/harness combina-tions. Order the original switch and it will
automatically supersede to the correct kit.
Follow the installation instructions in the
switch/harness kit.
Typical switch layout on GSD1920, 2100, 2200 series. Wiring varies between models.
Typical switch layout on GSD3100, 3200, 3300 series. Wiring varies between models.
