Dishwasher will fill start to wash for 3 sec then stop and do this three time then lights shut off. If you hit cancel water will drain then stop what going on.
You will want to check down in the pump to make sure that there is nothing causing the motor to stall. If so then clear obstruction. If the motor turns freely then the problem is in the control board.
None of the lights on the control panel light up. Would the problem be in the control board or do I need to change the panel .
Answer Hello Steve,
You would want to make sure that you are getting 120vac to the contol board. If you are getting power to the board then you would want to check the ribbon cable connected to the control board to make sure that it is connected. If there is no power to control board you will need to check to make sure that there is power to the unit and trace back to the control to find out where the loss of power is. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
What about not being able to change selection on panel? When we try to change from one wash selection to another (or anything else) it will not change.
Answer Hello Angie,
I would first check the connection at the ribbon cable. If you take a pencil with an eraser and go in the same direction as the leads on the ribbon cable, this cleans the connections better than anything elst I've found. If you still get no results, you may have to replace the control 12002713. The panel contains the membrane switch 6-919816. I want to tell you to put it into the self diagnostic program, but if it's not responding for the wash cycles, it probably will not respond for the self-diagnostics.
To initiate the diagnostics test cycle, press the following sequence of keys within 10 seconds:
High Temp Wash, Air Dry, High Temp Wash, Air Dry
Power Scour, Air Dry, Power Scour, Air Dry
The diagnostics test cycle may be manually advanced to the next interval by pressing the pots & pans key. To exit diagnostics, press cancel.
2. The sales demo cycle consists of a single 6-minute wash interval which starts at interval 1 and concludes at interval 0. To initiate the sales demo cycle, press the following sequence of keys within 10 seconds:
High Temp Wash, Air Dry, High Temp Wash, Air Dry, High Temp Wash
Power Scour, Air Dry, Power Scour, Air Dry, Power Scour
3. The diagnostics test cycle executes a soil sensing interval at interval 9 to test the soil sensing circuit. The sensing LED is illuminated throughout this sense interval.
If the soil sensing pressure switch is tripped at any time during this sense interval, the control will immediately terminate the sense interval and proceed with the remainder of the diagnostics cycle.
If the time limit for this sense interval elapses without detecting soil, the control simply proceeds with the remainder of the diagnostics cycle.
4. The diagnostics cycle suspends cycle timing and executes a thermal hold at interval 7. The thermal hold interval is terminated and cycle
timing resumes when the water is heated to the desired set point temperature (60ºC/140ºF). The maximum default time limit elapses (1 hour), or the cycle is manually advanced to the next interval by pressing the pots & pans key. The water heating LED is illuminated during the thermal hold.
5. The clean LED is illuminated at the end of both the diagnostics test cycle
and the sales demo cycle. The clean LED can be extinguished by opening
the door or pressing any key.
6. During intervals 9 through 3 of the diagnostics cycle, the clean LED is
illuminated whenever the control detects a resistance of greater than
approximately 45 K-OHMS on the thermistor/ thermostat circuit. This
feature is intended to help determine whether a thermostat or thermistor
is installed. A thermostat with normally open contacts would trigger the
clean LED (until the thermostat is tripped). Under normal operation, the
resistance of the thermistor is always less than 45 K-OHMS and would
not trigger the clean LED.
7. The wash and drain auxiliary windings are only “on” when the motor is
being started. When the control has determined that the motor has been
started satisfactorily, the auxiliary winding will be turned “off”.
8. Entering the key sequence high temp wash (or power scour), air dry,
high temp wash (or power scour), air dry, after a cycle has started, will
enable the pots-n-pans key rapid advance feature. This will allow service
to rapidly step to any interval of the currently running cycle.
Other Control Features:
Terminates current active cycle and clears cycle selections. Executes 2-minute
drain upon first selection if water is likely to be left in sump. Subsequent
selections toggle between 2-minute drains and going to standby.
The control lock LED is illuminated and all keys of the keyboard are disabled
whenever the control lock feature is invoked by the customer. The control
lock feature (and LED) can be turned on or off by the customer at any time by holding down the air dry option key for 4 seconds.
If the control detects that a key is stuck in the depressed position, dishwasher operation will be suspended and the control will flash the LED associated with that key until the condition is corrected. If a key without an LED is stuck or multiple keys are stuck, the control will flash the lock-out LED.
If we can assist further please let us know.
My washer starts the cycle, fills with water and then runs for a while, then shuts off---- no lights on and water in the bottom.
Answer Hi John. Remove the lower kick panel. Turn off powered and see if the junction box wires are loose connections. If you do not find this, then from there power goes up to the door switches. There are 2 - switches one for the white wire (neutral) feed and the other id the black wire positive feed. Both of them need to close for operation. Look with a flashlight to see if the rear legs are completely down touching the floor. This insures that the door stays latched during a cycle. Use a ohm meter to see if you have a faulty switch not opening and closing while toggling it. Meter part # MA-12815. Door switch part # 99002751. Door latch assy part # W10130694. Look at the door latch body to see if the door handle or the outer pivots are broken off the latch. If so then look at the back of the control panel to see if the latch V-receivers are broken. If so the control panel will need to be replaced also. It is part # 6-919091. This is a direct indication of a installation issue. Level the unit front to back and side to side. Use the installation guide with your use and care manual.
