There is no lights on panel but power to the unit. Could the motor be burnt out? The unit didn't finish last cycle. What else could be the problem?
You will want to check the control board to see if there is power getting to the control board. If there is no power getting to the control board then the issue would be caused by either loss of power from the main source or the fuse may be blown before you get to the control board. If there is power to the control board then the control board would most likely be the issue. The part number for the control board would be 8564543 and the fuse is 8193762.
I took the cover off of the chopper assembly. Should the chopper blade turn freely or is it designed to not turn during cleaning?
Answer Hello Kelvin,
The chopper 8268383 should be turnable but it will not turn freely since it is attached to the motor on the backside. You should remove it and make sure the assembly is not damaged. If there are a lot of food particles on the screen it has most certainly failed.
Followed online tutorial on dishwasher because dishes were not clean. All went well until reassembly. The chopper assembly is making horrible noise when running dishwasher. Is there a trick to getting the chopper assembly back in correct position? Additionally, it does seem chopper assembly is in good condition,
Answer Dora, Yes, there are several things to check and verify when you replace the chopper screen and blade. When you removed the original screen, you need to check the tabs in the cenetr of the impeller 8193951 (black area) make sure the tabs are not damaged or worn. The tabs on the back side of the chopper blade/screen have to engage the tabs on the impeller, in order to drive the blade and cut up the soft food particles. You also need to check and make sure there is nothing inside the impeller housing, that will create a noise as well. The screen and chopper blade do have to be installed properly and then the protector 8531857 needs to be installed after you're sure the screen and blade are installed and engaged the tabs of the impeller.
My dishwasher is not cleaning as well as it used to. I have removed the chopper screen a couple of time and found it plugged with food. Do these tend to wear out or do i have a bigger problem?
Answer Hello Diy,
The chopper screen should never stop up with food particles. If it has, the chopper assembly 8268383 should be replaced. This is not a part that should have to be cleaned out since the blade should ride against it and the water flow should wash away the particles.
