My replacement control panel has two little plastic tabs on the bottom of the panel that did not exist on my original. They look like they would fit into to little notches in the stainless steel tab on the front diswasher cover, but mine does not have that either. Otherwise, the parts are identical. Can I safely cut these tabs off?
Answer Hi. If your front panel does not have these cut out notches to accept the ones of the new bottom control panel, then it would be a safe manner to remove the tabs as long as it does not adversely affect the total rigidity of the completed replacement physically. So when you press in to activate he commands it does not feel spongy. Control panel part # 8531242. Thank you.
Water will not drain out of dishwasher when cycled. Dishwasher cycles like normal until the end during the drying cycle when the water is supposed to drain out. I have to hit cancel button to have water drain out ?
Answer Hi Tomilyn. Use a shop vac and towels to remove the water and debris as you take the inside top of the pump assy. apart. Rinse the wash arm jet holes out and clean the debris under the sink water. At the bottom of the inside sump assy. there is a chopper blade/screen part # 8268383. It may be clogged or the chopper blade defective. Then un hook the drain hose at each end. At the pump end there is a check valve (flapper) part # 8268375 that may be just barely hanging. Look inside the sink drain end and see if there is debris in both the drain hose and the sink plumbing itself. Use a screwdriver to help unclog under the sink. Thank You.
