The 'normal' light blinks constantly. No break in the blinking pattern. Dishwasher does not work and unplugging it hasn't helped. Help is GREATLY APPRECIATED. Thanks!
Answer Hello Melissa. Here are the instructions from the manufacture. Hope this helps.
A rapidly blinking LED over one of the keys of the keypad (or sometimes a “dead” keypad/console) indicates one or more key switch lines are stuck or shorted on either the control or the keypad. To determine which one, do the following test:
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
2. Open console and disconnect the keypad ribbon connection from the control (at P1). Put console back together.
3. Plug in dishwasher or reconnect power.
4. With door latched, disconnect and reconnect thermistor or OWI sensor two times in less than 6 seconds.
5. Wait 10 seconds, then monitor the control’s response to the thermistor:
?If the control is OK (no longer sees shorts with the keypad unplugged), it will respond by running service diagnostics. Listen for it to begin filling after it concludes the 5–10 second display test at the beginning of the service diagnostics cycle. Check and/or replace the keypad if the control responds OK.
?If the control is not OK (still sees shorts with the keypad unplugged), then it will NOT respond to the thermistor at all and will remain off
after 10 seconds go by. Make sure the keypad is unplugged for this test. Confirm that all other connections are made, the console and
door are reassembled, power is back on, and the door is latched; then repeat steps 1-5 above. If still no response, replace the control.

Electric Range/Kenmore (Roper); I need an oven control. When I use your Index, it list 3 oven control modules all of which are Frigidaire parts; putting the model #in the compatabilty shows non-compatible.
Answer George, the replacement electronic control listed for your model is part number WB27M4. Unfortunately, this item has been discontinued with no further replacements or cross references available and our company is unaware of any other available sources. Sorry about that!
My dishwasher is dead. I have checked the power to the fuse and it is good. Can I jump the fuse to see if the control board works? What would make the control board go out? What would make the fuse go out?
Answer Hello Mike,
The fuse will open when an excessive current flow is present in the circuit. Be aware that the current flow will be the same through the entire circuit. This means that the current that blew the fuse was the same from the breaker to the motor and all of it in between. For this reason, you will need to check the entire circuit for loose connections and proper resistance readings. I would start at the wire nut connections where the power is connected to the unit behind the kick panel. If there is a melted wire nut, this caused the fuse to blow. If not, ohm out the motor windings and make sure there are not shorted components and/or harnesses. If no problem is found in the unit, check connections to the breaker in the breaker box. If you jump the fuse without correcting the issue, the board will require replacement since this will allow excessive current flow to the board.
What is a thermistor?
Answer Hello Nathern. A thermistor is a sensor that changes in resistance as the temperature around it changes. As the resistance changes, a control board reads the resistance and determines the air temperature.
