Several of my buttons no longer activate their cycle so I assume I need a new control module. Is this the correct module? It seems one area of the website says it is compatible and then when I check it for compatibility it says it isn't. What should I believe? Also, is this something "easy" to install if you are mechanically inclined?
Answer Hello Amy,
The correct control for the model number you listed is 266746, MFG Part Number: 266746. If you need the jumper wire also, the part number is 167782, MFG Part Number: 167782. When you get the door panel off and you are ready to remove the control, there are three tabs made on the bottom of the control that have to be depressed to release it from the panel assembly. I start on one end and work my way to the other end. These tabs are on the bottom as you look at the control in position. The hardest part is programming the control. Be sure to check the rinse and hold cycle for 18 to 24 minutes after you get it programmed. To check the program, turn the machine on with the control hanging by the wires, (not on the control panel yet), and the control panel snapped into the door lock position. If the rinse and hold cycle is over 30 minutes, the program you put in is incorrect. If you would like an illustrated instruction sheet, re-post with an e-mail address and we can send it to you. Since it has pictures, it cannot be posted in this format.
How do you remove the control module from this dishwasher as I have the panel off and looking at the control module in its housing. I have the replacement module ready to be put in place of the original one but do not know how to remove the old one from it's cradle. Apparently it must snap out and the new one snaps in somehow! Please Help!
Answer Hello Bernie,
If you look at the third picture of the part on our site, you will notice three places across the bottom that are notched. These are the tabs that lock the control onto the metal frame. If you depress each of the three places from one side to the other while putting slight upward pressure on the control, it will pop out. This seems simple, but if you put too much pressure on it, it will not want to come out and if you don't put enough, it will also give you a hassle to come out. Rest assured, it will come out . Just be patient and work slowly and it will come out easier than you expect it to.
