i put new front panel on dish washer and it work great for about 5 times then it quit again they sent me a new panel this one does the same . I have current to the main switch but i think thats a far as it goes. no juice to door switch, should i just buy a new one? thanks rich
Answer Rich, If theres no 120 VAC to the door switch, you'd have an open thermal fuse 8193762,and or a broken or loose wire between the two components. If you have an "open" thermal fuse, it could be due to a voltage fluctuation in the power supply, a loose connection at the power connections in the junction box. or fault in the heater element or wiring there. You can check for 120 VAC at the door switch and the P2pin6 (blk/wht wire) at the control board to chassis ground. and you can check for 120 VAC at the Tan wire on the P8 terminal to chassis ground, with the door switch "activated". You'll also want to make sure your power supply and connections are properly polarized and grounded in the junction box. We don't see you needing "new one" over a loose or damaged "minor" component.
Hello, my dishwasher will not start. I have verified it is getting power, first indication was that the Air Dry, Sani Rinse, and Hi Temp Scrub buttons would light up when pressed. None of the Wash options (Pots and Pans, Normal wash, etc) will light up when pressed. I found the reset procedure online, and pressed the Air Dry and Hi Temp Scrub buttons back and forth 5x. At this point all the lights on the control panel lit up, and it went into the 2 minute diagnostic cycle as expected. When that completed, it was still the same as before, it would not start when I press the Start button. Any ideas?
Answer Hello Nathan. Based on the information you provided, the control panel is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
Thank you for responding to my original question (machine's buttons light, but the machine will not start-the unit will discharge water), the machine's float mechanism is working properly, but it is still not working. What would be the next step please. Does the fact that it will discharge water rule out door switches and the control panel?
Answer Hello Robert. I would test with the machine filled with water, at the point the circulation pump should be running , to see if the motor is getting power. If power is present, the circulation motor W10239404 has failed. If no voltage is present, the control 8564543 has failed.It is much easier and safer to test for voltage in this instance with a voltage indicator TJNCVT-2. sure hope this helped!
My machine does not start. The button lights go on but nothing happens. If I put water in the unit, and hit the cancel button and close the door, the water will drain.
Answer Hi Robert. Remove the kick plate. Look at the float switch to see if the float stem rides up and down on the fill switch kit part # 8193506. Sometimes the switch mount body side access will pop loose and the stem will slide off the sw. lever getting cocked between the 2. Thank You.
