Hello, I'm looking at the door switch, and when the handle is not depressed I get a reading of 0 ohms, when it it depressed I get a reading of .5 ohms. Not sure what numbers I should be looking for. Is this a "failed" unit? Also, both switches are giving me the .5 ohm and 0 ohm reading. Thanks
Answer Richard, If you take the latch assembly and push it onto the strike, like in a situation where the door is closed on both switches it should read closed. If the latch is not in position as the door being open then the switches would be open. If you get an open circuit when the latch is closed then the switches are bad.
My dish washer won't latch and the power won't come on when I do get it to latch. What could the problem be.?
It sounds like you may have a bad door latch assembly. The door should latch easily. Check to make sure that the strike is meeting up with the door latch properly. If not then it may be that the strike is not making good contact with the latch to activate switches.
Hi, the child lock light blinks 3 times. I turned off the circuit breaker and tried to reset the dishwasher. Nothing works....will I need to order a complete door panel for 150.00?
Answer Hello Dan,
The child lock blinking indicates that more than 1 of the keypads is stuck. You can check your connection of the ribbon cable to the control board. If the connection looks good with no corrosion or bad connection then you will need to replace the keypad.
during cycle dishwasher stopped and lights were blinking. i figured push cancel/drain to reset. machine started to drain then shut off and now cancel/drain light blinking. bad door switch? also, how old is this unit?
Answer Steve, You're just a little off target, a faulty door switch would distrupt power to the control and you'd have no lights and the unit would do nothing at all. You most likely have a fault in the control panel/key pad assembly 8051721 " If the control detects that a key is stuck in the depressed position, dishwasher operation will be suspended and the control will flash the light for that key until the condition is corrected. If a key without a light is stuck or multiple keys are stuck, the control will flash" You will also need to reset the control "HI TEMP WASH, AIR DRY, HI TEMP WASH, AIR DRY or POWER SCOUR, AIR DRY, POWER SCOUR, AIR DRY If the sequence is entered after starting a cycle, the Rapid Advance feature is turned on, which allows the operator to manually advance the currently running cycle, interval by interval, by pressing the Pots & Pans/Antibacteria or Heavy/Soak & Scrub key." and allow the diagnostic cycle to run the complete test mode. Thanks and Good Luck
