dishwasher was not running but the inside smelled warm like after dishes ran a cycle. Heater coil not hot. Upper right side of door panel is warm to touch, inside and outside. When I turned off circuit breaker to the dishwasher it cools off. Is it the electronics getting hot for some reason?
Answer Mike, The warm control panel, would be a "normal" occurrence. As long as the door is closed and latched shut, there is voltag supplied to the control board, and certain components will be "active" and can produce a warm feeling on the panel and door assembly(s). With the warm control board area, the door switches and fuse, should be fine, so the issue should be in the user interface 3380893 or control board 8531292. We'll send you some information, so you can program a test mode, and check the operation of the dishwasher. Thanks
The light on my panel do not work and the dishwasher doesn't run. There is power getting to the unit. It worked once last week by jiggling the handle a bit. I think it's something with the handle not thinking it's properly closed. My jiggle the handle trick doesn't seem to work. Can I replace this?
Answer Nick, Your description would lead to a possible issue in the handle 3369457 or latch assembly 3380854. If there's a broken tab or crack in the frame etc, the handle won't interact with the latch assembly properly. There is also the possibility of a faulty door switch as well 4318273 Once you remove power to the dishwasher and remove the inner door liner from the door assembly, you'll have access to the latch and switches, and can determine the issue.
Lights dont work on control except for the lock light.
Answer Hello Bill! Is the control pad locked? Press and hold HEATED DRY for 5 seconds until the light turns off. This should help. Thanks!
Thanks for the reply. How do I get the fuse unclipped from the control board? Bob
Answer Hello Bob. The fuse 675813 is held onto the control board with tabs. You will need to release the tabs and pull the old fuse off. Then clip the new fuse onto the control board and replace the wires. Hope this helps.
I have the thermal fuse (ap3115186) how do I get it out of the control board? Also,the instruction sheet does not tell me this information. What part is the console ? Thanks!
Answer Hi Bob. The thermal fuse is located in the control panel on the back of the circuit board. The control panel is on top of the door where you press for commands. You will need to take the screws from the inside of the door out to access the panel circuit board. The thermal fuse is clipped in place on the board housing. Make sure that you use the wiring harness that may come with the fuse kit part # 675813. Thank you.
