My dishwasher started showing a blinking "Clean light. The pattern was 6-1. The tech papers with the dishwasher indicate this is a "No Communication" fault. One of the recommended checks is to measure the resistance of the diverter from "the load side of the fuse to the P12-6 on control. The reading should be 1300-1600 Ohms. When I look at the wiring diagram, this seems to indicate I am supposed to measure the resistance across the diverter motor. I was able to locate where there are two light blue wires plugged into the diverter. upon removing this connector and checking the resistance, I get infinite resistance. This seems to indicate to me the diverter motor is shot. Do you concur? According to your sight, the recommended diverter motor is W10155344. Do you think replacing this part will solve my problem?
ANSWER Rob, We concur, The motor winding should have a resistance of 1300 O to 1600 O , if you have infinite resistance, then the motor winding is open and the motor wont run, so you will need to install the diverter motor W10155344 once installed and wired correctly re check for the proper resistance at the control board (Place one probe on the P10 Pin 1 position and the other on P12 Pin 6 position.Should be between 1300 O to 1600 O.) to verify the wiring and the connections are proper and "solid".
