GE dishwasher error codes

The history of the General Electric Company (GE) keeps its count from the 1876, when Thomas Edison created an incandescent electric lamp in his laboratory. In the 1890 he merged all his enterprises into one “Edison General Electric Company» and in the 1892 organized a merger with his direct competitor – “Thomson- Houston Company”. Thus, the General Electric brand appeared in the market.
