THE DISHWASHER ONLY DRAINS SOMETIMES.NO CLOGS ,IMPELLER SPINS FREELY,DO YOU THINK THE DRAIN PUMP WORKS INTERMITTINGLY OR SHOULD I BE LOOKING MAYBE ELECTRICAL. I DONT WANT TO START BUYING PARTS I DONT NEED.MACHINE IS 7 YRS OLD.
Answer Chuck, you're on the right track. It is more likely to have an intermittent or failed drain pump WD26X10039 than a defective control board WD21X10241 or wiring at this stage. You do want to make sure the filter screens and sump chamber are clear of any sediment, chemical build up or debris. You also may want to disconnect the drain hose from the plumbing, and drain the dishwasher into a bucket, a few times, this would clear any debris from the drain hose.
I have a problem similar to Brad's with the pdw8880l00ss. Mine will start (begin to fill), sometimes start the cycle, sometimes just stop during filling and at other times, finish the rinse cycle and start the wash cycle andthen just stop. I've noticed that the cycle time under the same conditions as a few weeks ago is now 20 minutes shorter? Any ideas?
Answer Hi. It seems like you have a couple different issue. Remove the lower kick plate. Inspect the float stem as it engages the float switch for positive engagement actions up and down (ON/OFF). Make sure the float stem has not fallen off the side of the lever and the side cover has not uncapped open allowing all of this. Once this is established, then the Diagnostic chart needs to be located (either behind the toe kick panel in with the electronic control board). Put the unit into a diagnostic mode. It sounds like the Turbidity Sensor test in the diagnostic needs tested. The Sensor is part # WD21X10202. Make sure the door latch/switches are staying closed. Let us know what the diagnostic error codes are so we can help. Thank You.
After starting the dishwasher it runs a few minutes (the first cycle). Clicks as if to switch to the next cycle but shuts off. This will happen repeatedly 5-6 times and then it will run once. It makes it past that first interval it will complete the rest of the cycles ?
Answer Hi Brad. WASHABILITY COMPLAINTS- Hot Water – Ample supply of water at 120°F minimum temperature is necessary. Do not use dishwasher soon after using clothes washer or filling bathtub. Remove the lower kick panel and find the tech. sheet. It will allow you to use the diagnostic mode and find the default code . This allows you to use the volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. Then you will check the complete circuit , wiring , connections, and devices with the wiring diagram at your hand. Thank You.
Why does my dishwasher keep running? Is it the control board?
Answer Hello Bob! It is possible that it could be a bad board. Is there anything showing on the control display? Does this happen on every cycle selected? Thanks.
Had a power surge after which the d/w would not do anything. Tried reset but no change. Is there a transformer in the d/w?
Answer Hello Sam. You will need to test and see if your getting power to the control board. If so, you will need to replace the control assembly. Hope this helps.
