When I turn on the dishwasher the minute timer goes to 82 minutes, the drain pump comes on and stays on, the minute timer does not count down it stays at 82 minutes. I can not reset the program by pushing the two required program switches. The last time it reset it went to 82 minutes then when I swiched off and on it went to 13 minutes the pump started but it din not count down and the pump is still running.
Is this a controller problem? The machine is about 12-13 years old.
ANSWER Hello Nick,
This is most likely a bad water valve 00425458. If the water valve is not opening fully and there is a drop in the water pressure, the unit will dribble water into the base assembly. The drain pump will kick on all of the time and in some cases, it will continue to run even after the door has been opened.
