My Whirlpool dishwasher is not working. In touching the control panel get nothing to work or light up. How would I test fuse? Or is this the control panel?
Answer Debbie, You do want to start by testing the control panel thermal fuse 675813 it is a good possibility it's "open" based on your post. Of course you need to remove power to the dishwasher, then remove the screws holding the inner door liner to the door frame. be careful with the wires to the control board, and remove the two wires attached to the fuse. Set your meter to the lowest resistance setting and place the meter leads across the two terminals, you should have a "closed" circuit. If not replace the fuse kit. If the fuse checks "closed" then you'll need to remove the lower access panel and kickplate, and check the wiring connections inside the junction box mounted to the front frame of the dishwasher. If the fuse and the connections in the junction box are OK, then start by replacing the control panel 8274721 it's more likely to be the issue than the control board.
dishwasher goes through a normal wash cycle. Instead of cutting off,the normal button will flash red for a while.Then start going through the wash cycle again and won't cut off. ???
Answer Randy, The more likely issue is in the control panel / key pad assembly 8051707 Apparently the "Normal" wash keypad has failed " ERROR MESSAGES STUCK KEY: 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 the Lock-Out light."
We have a Kenmore 2 door fridge, Model number 106.52522100, and it has a serial number of: SL4950889. There was a leak under it a year ago, and the ice maker stopped producing ice. Basically water would not flow into the ice making tray anymore; I think these two things - the leak under the unit and the no water flowing into the ice making tray may be related, or may be they are not, I'm not sure. Anyhow, after talking with your knowledgeable sales people on the phone I ordered a new Inlet Valve AP5263471 and new Ice Maker AP 2984633 and installed them, and I find the problem is still there - water is not going into the ice maker and filling it up, so no ice gets made. There is water going into the water inlet valve, but for some reason the inlet valve is not switching on or something is blocking the water from flowing into the ice making tray, hence no ice. I am told now that I might need to order a control board for this fridge to finally fix the problem. Can you confirm that this is what I need to do? Thanks
Answer Hello Vidur,
You should check the fill tube to make sure it is not frozen up. If it is frozen, the water will not be able to get to the ice maker. You should use a straw or something to check for ice in the fill tube since it can sometimes be frozen completely clear and the ice inside it isn't visible. If it is frozen, you can thaw it with a hair dryer. This may take up to 15 minutes but it will clear the ice with no parts damage. This is caused by a failing water valve, which you have already replaced, so this will complete the repair you have already begun.
