You needed a manual quickly and waited some time to get the info, all the while the manual and info has been right under your nose.

Next time, try searching the forum and the download section using the first 4 or five characters of your model number and add an "*"(wildcard) at the end such as, "GLDT696*". Make sure you use the Appliantology search box at the top right corner when searching using a numerical string with a wildcard and make sure the box besides it says "forums" for a forum search and then "download" for a search of the downloads section.

For instance searching Gldt696* i found a post that led me to this minimanual

and this topic that has some useful info

If I want more to find more info I just remove one or more digits from my search string and try... maybe "GLDT*"..... I get the same results. And I find that mini manual when I search the downlaod section.

Maybe there is a manual that covers the entire series and is named "GLD"? I am not sure, I don't even know that is the name of the series but what the heck, I'll try it. So I search forums and download section using "GLD*".

Searched forums and nothing came up... can't be... oops i forgot to switch the box from" this topic" to "forums".... ok... 112 threads came up.. scroll through them and look for some interesting stuff... uh oh there is a service bulletin... Didn't list my exact model but I'll check it out anyway.

Now I'll switch the box to downloads and search "GLD*".... Ok..10 results. There is the mini manual I found earlier... and lookie here! There is a manual named " GE and Profile GLD GLC GDWT PDW Dishwashers Technical Service Guide"....

Ok great... but my exact model is not specifically mentioned in that guide but maybe GE simply uses the mini manual to update this technical guide... maybe not.. but I will check it out shortly

But right now, gonna keep looking at the search list... there is another bulletin... gonna see what that's about.... etc

Okay, now I want to bolster my overall knowledge of this issue.. so this time I will use the google search box located top middle of the page and search " GE dishwasher dead" I get 112 results including May not apply but who knows.

I see another post about GE Monograms recall due to a thermal fuse issue causing breaker trips... not relevant... good to know but it got me thinking.. does this thing have an internal fuse... Check wiring diagram.. No problem.

here's another thread It involves PDW model... but wasn't didn't that tech guide I found include PDW series along with my series? hmmmm let's check out that thread.... something about a dead machine caused by a shorted touchpad.. I'll keel that in mind.

Anyhow, this is how you can use this site to the fullest... hope that helps!
