We have been having problems with item melting when we run the dishwasher, and now noticed the the lower spray arm has started to melt as well. Could this be a thermostat problem or something else.
You would want to test the thermostat to make sure that it is good but it could also be an issue with the relay in the control board sticking. You will want to check to make sure that there is not constant power going to the heating element without shutting off.
Unit makes a sizzling sound and does not drain.
Answer Hello Dennis. See if the noise is coming from the control board. If so, you will need to order and replace the board in the unit.
Dishwasher runs wash cycles and stays on rinse and does stop. What can I do to fix this?
Answer Hello Lina. Make sure the heater is working good in the unit. If so, you will need to order and replace the control module 154712101 on the unit.
The water valve leaked water and the dishwasher sat in about 1/2 for sometime. I fixed the valve and water goes into the dishwaser but it does not wash or darin the water. There is some rust on the pump and corotion on the turbidity sensor? What can I do?
Answer Tim, You could try and clean the deposits off the sensor, using hot water and distilled white vinegar or a citric acid based cleaner. Soak the "clear end of the sensor, then use an old tooth brush to scrub and clean it, just be very carefiul. For the motor, first thing to try, remove the lower wash arm,support and filters, remove the volute cover 154245501, and use your finger or screwdriver and turn the impeller several revolutions, this should "break" the shaft seal and shaft loose and the motor may run fine from then on.
The lower sprayer arm melted. Is this a electrical problem or something else?
Answer Hello Lisa. If the spray arm becomes loose, it can release and hit the heater and melt on the units. I would check and see if the arm is loose and made contact with the heater. If so, replace the spray arm in the unit.
The washer will not drain. has standing water after cycle. I have changed the drain pump and checked for any blocked hoses. Not sure what else would keep the tub from draining. Motor runs and no water drains though the pump.
Answer Hello Brian. If the drain pump 154580301 is new and the hoses are clear and the sump assembly in the machine is not clogged, you will need to test for power to the drain pump during drain. If there is no power coming to the drain pump, you will need to replace the control board 154663005 if the wires are good. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I am getting water to the lower spray arm but it does not appear to be turning.. I noticed a little black piece when I took the arm off does anyone know where this piece goes... If I order a new spray arm will this be in tack?
Answer Hi Sharef. Under the lower wash arm there is a gray trap that you lift up and out. Then you take the white support and twist/ lift at the same time to remove. There is a 3" filter basket under here that you need to clean . Also clean the large silver screen to clean. Clean , Clean , Clean is the name of the game. Is the spray arm full of debri's in the jet holes? Take a pick tool and rinse clean the wash arm. There shouldnt be a piece of anything broken. You need to make sure all is clean in the sump/ pump assembly. Thank you.
