My dishwasher will not come on. It is getting power to the unit but the display will not come on. Is there a doorwsitch assy that could be faulty causing the issue?
Answer Hello Shane. No, it sounds like the control board is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. The switches will not prevent the control panel from coming on and lighting up.
I changed the water inlet switch, float valve and the latch assembly. The lights come on but there isn't anything else that happens, no water although the supply line to the machine is wide open. I hardly use the machine and it's just four years old.
Answer Hello Steve,
You will want to turn dishwasher on and check for power going to the water valve. At start up there should be 120vac going to water valve. If there is 120 vac and there is no water flowing then you need to replace water valve. If there is not 120 vac then you will need to check on the control board to see if you are getting 120 vac out of board to the pump. You will Check P2 pin 11 to neutral for 120 vac. If no power then the control board is bad. If there is power but none getting to valve you will need to check the wiring.
My dishwasher seems as though it is going through its cycle. You can hear the water coming in and you can hear it click through each cycle, but on the wash part of it, which is normally the loudest part of the cycle, you can't hear the water being circulated. The detergent door opens but it is just streaming down the front of the door and not being distributed in to the tub. Can you give me any idea what the problem is. Thanks!
Answer Hello Bandy,
If you can hear the motor running, you need to check the filters and the spray arms for clogs. If it isn't making any motor noise during this time and voltage is being supplied to the motor, the motor 154844301 has failed and needs to be replaced. Of course, you should first check the water level when the unit has finished filling. If the water level is low, (it should be within about half an inch below the heating element), either the water valve 154637401 has failed or the water level float is stuck in the up position.
Hi Dave My dishwasher turns on but water is not coming into the unit at all. What part does this sound like? thanks
Answer Vicki, First check the water level float, 154767801 in the front left corner of the tub bottom, make sure theres nothing blocking it and if you raise and lower the assembly, you should hear a " click" noise, from the bottom of the tub. If alls OK, then check or replace the water fill valve 154476102.
Water will not go into dishwasher. Float works, do I need a switch assembly?
Answer Hi Frances. Remove power. Make sure the float stem rest on the float switch arm so it rides up and down correctly as the water level adjust with the float. Is the float stem off to the side of the switch arm? If so then adjust so it rides correctly on the switch arm. Jump the float switch wires momentarily. Wrap elect. tape around to protect from shorting out. Reapply power. Is the water now incoming? If so replace the float switch with part # 154773201. Make sure the float stem rest on the float switch arm so it rides up and down correctly as the water level adjust with the float. If is is out of pocket, then it will not activate the switch correctly. This is a common failure. Turn off the water supply under the sink. Unhook the supply hose from the units water valve. Flush out any sediment into a bucket. Use a flashlight and see if the water valve inlet screen is clogged. If so the water valve is part # 154637401. Make sure the supply hose is not kinked. Unplug the water valve wire connector. Are you getting 120 vac to the water valve at the start cycle? If not, then check if the wires as they pass through the bottom of the door are not chewed in 2. it is common that field mice will be a guest for the winter and go closest to incoming water. They are a common dishwasher fail cause. if so, repair wires with wire nuts or crimpers and butt splices. Use the ohm meter and see if the water valve coils windings are OK. Approx. 18-38 ohms. See if they are not shorted to case frame also. If so the water valve need replaced. Part # 154637401. Thank
