Considering this, which dishwashers have leak protection?

Bosch is the only U.S. manufac- turer to offer a high-tech leak-protection system in their dishwashers. AquaStop is a precisely engineered tub and sensor system that detects leaks in the solid molded base of the dishwasher, shuts down operation and automatically pumps out water so it cannot make contact with the floor.

Additionally, how do you reset a GE dishwasher? To reset a GE dishwasher, press the Start or Reset button during a cycle. If you have a top-loading dishwasher, you'll need to open the top, press the button, and close it again. Then, wait 2 minutes for the dishwasher to pump out the water.

Subsequently, question is, what is AquaStop leak protection?

The AquaStop™ is a smart system that provides water leakage protection, provided that the dishwasher's mains power is switched on. When a potential leak is detected, the valve immediately cuts off the water supply.

How do you clear a leak detected on a GE dishwasher?

If the dishwasher is also beeping, disconnect power to the dishwasher until the dishwasher can be repaired. If you experience leaking from underneath the dishwasher or get the “LEAK DETECTED” message, service will be needed. For service, please schedule an appointment with GE Appliances Factory Service.

Why did my dishwasher stop working?

A dishwasher that won't stop filling may have a faulty float switch, a timer stuck on fill, or a water inlet valve that is stuck open. If your door isn't properly closed, the dishwasher will not start. If your latch is fine, check the timer or electronic control, especially if your drain pump motor isn't starting up.
