I have a GE quietpower 3 dishwasher I haven't used in years, started a regular cycle today and when it turned off, I can't unlatch it.

Hello, thank you for using Howly. I’ll be happy to help you out! May I ask your name?

Nice to meet you, *****!
What troubleshooting have you done so far?

Customer Replay

Nothing, I just can't unlatch the door

Got it. If the dishwasher won't do anything at all, the problem could be the power supply. Check the circuit breaker. Flip the switch to the “off” position and then turn it back on.

Customer Replay

No. I just did a wash and can't open the door

So the wash cycle has finished?

Customer Replay


Gotcha. It may be that the dishwasher is currently in the drying cycle. Once it is done, the dishwasher will open

Customer Replay

No, it cleaned, dried, and turned off. I just can't open the door.

I see, thank you.
Please try to turn off the circuit breaker and then turn it back on first

Customer Replay

I don't know which switch to turn off and if I turn everything, I'll this computer will turn off.

I turn off my circuit breaker and the dishwasher unlocked.

Everything is work?

No, that's all I had to say, but thanks again
