My dishwasher stopped working, and I noticed the release handle was broken, and thought perhaps the limit switches were broken, so I replaced the handle assembly, however, still no joy.
I'm trying to determine if it's the control board or the button panel. Looking at the ribbon, I was wondering which pinouts correlate to which button so I can test for continuity change as buttons are hit to validate the button panel. Maybe I need better glasses, but I'm counting 13 contacts in use for 6 buttons, is one of them a ground?
I replaced the button panel about a year ago when the start/stop button stopped working.
The led's on some of the buttons are dim, but some have just been that way since I replaced the button panel.
Answer Hello Majolley,
If the unit is completely dead, first remove the kick panel and check the power supply connection for burned wire nuts. While there, make sure voltage is being supplied from the breaker. Check both door switches and the leveling of the unit. If it isn't level or isn't properly secured under the counter top, the door switches may not be making contact when the door is shut. Since you didn't say if there was any sound from the unit or not, there are too many possibilities to cover. If you could please re-post with more details such as, "unit completely dead" or "unit fills and stops". This gives us enough information to give a fairly accurate diagnosis. Thank you for your understanding.
What is the 3 beside heated dry for/or do?
Answer Robin, the indicator beside the heated dry button is the lock symbol. You can lock the control panel from being used. Press and hold the heated dry button for three seconds to lock the controls and do the same to unlock them. Hope this information helps you, thanks!
How can I check the door switches and the wiring?
Answer Hi Lee. The door latch assy. is part # W10130695. You can buy the door striker part # is W10119337, and use it to toggle the door switches shut/on and open/off. This will free up your hands to electrically check the door switches. Make sure the unit is level front to back and side to side. All 4- legs touching the floor snugly so the door /latch don't get cocked under a full heated load in the tub. This in turn breaks switches, control panels and latch assy. Thank you.
