Hello, I'm looking at the door switch, and when the handle is not depressed I get a reading of 0 ohms, when it it depressed I get a reading of .5 ohms. Not sure what numbers I should be looking for. Is this a "failed" unit? Also, both switches are giving me the .5 ohm and 0 ohm reading. Thanks
Answer Richard, If you take the latch assembly and push it onto the strike, like in a situation where the door is closed on both switches it should read closed. If the latch is not in position as the door being open then the switches would be open. If you get an open circuit when the latch is closed then the switches are bad.
My dish washer won't latch and the power won't come on when I do get it to latch. What could the problem be.?
It sounds like you may have a bad door latch assembly. The door should latch easily. Check to make sure that the strike is meeting up with the door latch properly. If not then it may be that the strike is not making good contact with the latch to activate switches.
