Customer has a ge dishwasher that has wet dishes at end of cycle.Checked heater and limit thermostat with reset button both are okay.Found Tech sheet on right side front support brace and noticed these were the only two things in the heater circuit so it must be the board or a sensor.Ran the test for heater using test cycle and heater was working.Has anyone else ran onto this problem?I ran out of time before I made a determination and customer will be out of town so I want to get parts to fix upon return. thanks

Haven't run into this problem yet, but there is a kit for this problem.

 

Part # is Part number: WD35X10395

Part number: WD35X10395

, which consists of a new user interface board and door vent outlets. You will have to remove the entire door assembly and separate the outer door panel from the door liner.

Here's a link to the service pointer that was mentioned for the kit that the Wolf mentioned above.  I didn't respond earlier because I didn't see a model number, and I don't look at the tags.

The existing board can also be flashed if you know someone with a GE laptop. I've had at least a dozen done under warranty. 

 

EDIT: There's also a plastic thing that looks like an IUD available that forces more water into the soap dish. I've got the part and tech sheet at work. That solves another problem on that service bulletin posted by Spannerwrench.

On no-dry complaints check the user before ordering parts. Customers who won't use jet-dry,customers who fill the unit with plastic, customers who open the unit 3 minutes after the pump has stopped... Gotta eliminate these before putting parts on.

What is the simplest, dumbest explanation? Because that's the most probable one.

Here's the lowdown on the 'Soap doesn't dissolve' issue with these D/Ws... Diverter: WD12X20914  Instructions: WD00X1071  Kit: WD35X20915 . There's also a soap issue with the models that have 2 silverware racks. The rack with the cut out needs to be on the bottom or else not enough water gets to the soap dish.

 

 

EDIT: Have your GE rep send you a few... Part number: ap5953059

Part number: ap5953059

 is ridiculous!

I returned to dishwasher yesterday and it was washing dishes. Water was about 90 degrees and it is hooked to hot water.No problem with soap dispenser, detergent dispense and washed out of dispenser.The person who operates the dishwasher says that steam usually came out of vent when it was in use for two years,dishes hot at end of cycle.Measured the resistance of the thermistor 6.2k. I think thats within tolerance for water temp I measured.The customer uses rinse aid and runs hot water before starting the dw.The part #wd35x10395 has program board,I am wondering if that could be bad or the circuit board that has the relay board and brains could be bad.Im going to order circuit board($41) and see and let you know.

I found the heater not working on the test cycle when I went back.Measured the thermister resistance and it read 1.088k at room temperature which is to low for the ntc resistor.Replaced the water level/ thermister assembly and it works properly.I do not know why my readings were so far off and why heater was working on test cycle to begin with.Thank for your input.
