Answer Hello David. Test and see if there is any power coming to the control board on the unit. If there is power there, and the unit does not work, you will need to replace that board on the unit. 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
It runs without any coins and will not shut off.
Answer Hello Fred,
You will need to replace the timer. It contains a bad switch.
How do you take the door switch off? (Part #ap4114315) It looks like it should just pull out but I am afraid of breaking it. Thanks for the help.
Answer Hello Tammy,
These switches 99002751 are very hard to remove without damaging. It will come out but you have to be very careful. I usually replace the complete door latch assembly W10275768 since it includes both switches pre installed.
START/CANCEL BUTTON NO LIGHTS. ALL OTHER LIGHTS WORK. DISHWASHER IS DEAD. HOW DO YOU REMOVE THESE SWITCHES TO TEST? THEY WON'T COME OUT.
Answer Stan, The door switches are not the issue, there would be no lights at all were they the problem. The more likely issue is the key pad/control panel 6-919398, you have a failed start/cancel button circuit. The tech data sheet, should be in a bag attached to the backside of the lower kick plate/access panel. You can test each button/keypad with a VOM meter using the test information from the guide.
