When the door is open when I press the on/off button the unit starts to drain. What part could be the problem?
Answer Hello Scott,
Turn the power off to the unit and remove the water inlet valve. There is a flood switch in the bottom of the unit just behind the water inlet valve. There will be water in the bottom of the unit that will need to be cleaned out. Be careful not to damage the styrofoam float used for the flood switch! Once this is done, the water inlet valve 00425458 is normally what causes this issue to occur. When the valve doesn't fully open, the water splatters from the fill assembly in the upper left hand side of the lower machine compartment. When the flood switch is activated, the only thing the unit is able to do is drain out.
I have examined the wiring harness and do not see any obvious breaks or bad connections. How difficult is it to replace the harness? The lower end of the harness seems to enter into the bottom of the diswasher through a narrow slot. I can not see how or where it connects. What is the part number for the harness?
Answer Hi. Not Available As A Service Part (wire Harness) - This part has been discontinued and is no longer available. Item Number:999003. You have to remove the dishwasher completely. The base is a "Clam shell mounted" type as you disconnect one side and then "open the tub from the base assy. It is normal to un hook the lt. Side and hinge the rt. side (from the front view). Thank You.
The latch is not engaging - will not seat like the old one - do I need to reset the latch since I turned off the power to install the part?
Answer Hello Rob. It sounds like the latch is not positioned properly. Make sure everything is lined up correctly and there is nothing in a bind in the latch and strike plate assembly 00419828. If everything is installed correctly, it should latch properly. Hope this helps.
I just bought this part from your company. I am not able to get it to fit. Can you please tell me how to install this part in my dishwasher?
Answer Hello Jennifer. Here are the instructions from the manufacture. Remove fascia panel from console by removing four (4) T-20 Torx screws. Remove the console and access the latch assembly. Remove the old latch assembly and install the new one. Reinstall in reverse order.
