The (LED) lights on the control panel come on and stay on.
I have cut the power to the washer and a couple of times it "fixed itself" What is broken and how much does a new part cost? The machine is 5 years old
Answer Wendy, The most likely issue is a faulty control panel keypad assembly W10175347, especially if you " cut the power to the dishwasher and a couple of times it "fixed itself". An electronic control board, can't really repair itself. But, a faulty key pad on the panel, can cause the lights to turn on, or off and will under certain conditions, "lock up" or confuse the control board, until the power is reset the control returns to a "neutral" state.
My dishwasher does not work at all. However 3 lights do work on the pannel (High Temp., Heated Dry, andSani Rinse) The start button does not work at all. Does it need a now control board. I had to have one replaced on another dishwasher I own that did the same thing? Also what is this Thermal fuse I have heard about? Do I hav one and if so where is it located? Thank you in advance for your help!!!
Answer Bob, Yes, your dishwasher has a thermal fuse W10258275 it is located inside the control panel just above the PC board. If the thermal fuse was "open", the dishwasher would not operate at all. The fuse controls the power into the control board. Since your issue is some buttons don't work and unit won't start, you need to check or replace the control panel W10243209, you most likely have several faulty keypad circuits, and the control can't program for a cycle.
