Will the drain solenoid click before it fails.
Answer Hello Ray,
The drain solenoid clicks when it is operating properly in the sense that when the solenoid activates you will hear an audible click sound pulling the arm down.
DISHWASHER RUNS FOR 4 MIN. THEN WE GET ERROR MESSGE C1, OR C2. THE WATER IS ALL PUMPED OUT.
WE FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS, BUT IT DOES NOT FIX IT. WHAT IS GOING ON?
Answer Hello David,
You may want to check the drain pump gate valve. If the gate valve did not return to the closed position then the pump needs to be replaced. You may also have a drain sensor switch that is shorted or closed. Do a continuity check on the switch to make sure it is open. If it is closed then you will need to replace switch. Also check your drain solenoid to make sure that it is not stuck down. If it is then it needs to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
