E4 means dishwasher sensor is detecting the dishwasher is over filling. First thing I would check is the float. You will want to make sure it travels up and down freely. Open your dishwasher door all the way. Look on the right hand side (could be in a different location on your model) you will see a round thing. Kind of looks like a air hockey pusher. Try moving it slowly up and down making sure it’s not stuck open.
If this didn’t work then I would lean towards a faulty sensor.
It’s possible you could have a faulty board as well.
It is my opinion unplugging it will have no effect on this particular issue.
I hope this information has helped. God bless and have a great day.

According to the GE repairman who visited, the solution is to close the machine (with the lights flashing). The machine starts and goes through the cycles, which it does rapidly and then all the lights turn off and the machine becomes silent after 1-1/2 to 2 minutes. Then the machine has been reset to normal. During this reseting period nothing happens inside the machine, although you may hear a running sound.

Thus, the solution is to run the machine in this flashing light state for the 1-2 minutes it takes to go raipdly through each cycle and then reset.

I hope this helps.

At first thought, it sounds like the control board has gone bad. Make certain it is properly plugged in. If no luck there, call the repairman.

Not exactly sure of the problem you're having. Can you be more explicit?

Usually has a microswitch that connects when the door is closed. Check to see where the switch is and check to see if it is connecting.
