GE is getting sloppy with the documentation on its sorry-ass appliances. In this case, it’s a GE Triton XL dishwasher that tripped the circuit breaker (model number GSD6600G00BB). This is one of those abortion-that-lived dishwashers with the over-priced, unreliable electronic control boards. Turns out the problem was that an undocumented surge suppressor in the water inlet valve circuit had shorted– this surge suppressor was not shown on the wiring diagram! How sloppy is that? Well, that’s GE fer ya.
And, here’s a tip: putting electronic controls in wet appliances is a great recipe for selling lots of replacement control boards.
