When my dishwasher is going through the heat cycles it sometimes stop and the high temp wash light and heat dry light begin flashing back and forth. What causes that?
Answer Hello Mack,
This is most likely a stuck key on the control panel. Since the complete model number is not listed, I cannot accurately give you the correct part number. You are welcome to call in with the model number and one of our representatives will be happy to look it up for you.
Does the thermistor keep the dishwasher from changing cycles?
Answer Hello Dave,
The thermistor can indeed prevent the unit from going through its' cycles. If the control doesn't see the thermistor satisfied, the control cannot advance. Be aware though, if the heating circuit has failed and the water cannot heat, the thermistor cannot be satisfied and the unit will not advance. Also, if the control circuit that receives the information sent by the thermistor fails, it also will not advance.
