The GE Profile dishwasher is a sleek, modern dishwasher equipped with high-tech gadgetry --- like the SmartDispense II system that ensures sparkling dishes and a DeepClean cycle that will remove crusted-on food. According to the owner's manual, "reset" is used to change a cycle during washing. The "reset" button will sometimes refuse to respond, displaying 888 on the panel and necessitating a couple of quick tricks to ease it back into action.
Resetting the machine
PDW8000 series: press the reset button once. This will cancel the washing cycle and pump the water out of the machine.
PDW9000 series: open the door an inch and wait for the machine to stop. Touch the reset button to cancel the washing cycle and reboot the panel.
If the machine is unresponsive, kill the power to the machine by turning it off on the wall switch (if applicable) or turning the circuit breaker off.
Leave the power off for 30 seconds, then turn the power back on.
