We had a power outage and it blew a capacitor on the control board when the power came back on. I replaced the capacitor on the control board and tested the continuity on both door latches and they were fine but there are still no lights on the touch panel.
Answer Hello Wilbur,
Chances are extremely high that since the capacitor isn't the most sensitive component on the control board, there are more components on it that have failed. The most likely of which would be the microprocessor. Since none of the manufacturers allow the schematics of the control board out for fear of it being stolen, the repair of the board is normally not possible. I would replace the control board.
I can not get the lock fuction off. Do I need to replace the control panel?
Answer Hello Robert,
This is what I found in the use and care guide:
Control Lock Option
The control touchpads can be locked to prevent
unwanted use. If this feature is activated between
cycles, the dishwasher cannot be operated until the
controls are unlocked. If desired, the controls can be
locked after a cycle or delay has started.
Setting the Control Lock:
1. Press the Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
2. An indicator light next to the lock graphic will
illuminate when the controls are locked.
1. Press the
Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
2. The indicator light will go off.
If this isn't working for you, it's either going to be a bad control panel 6-919844, (a failed button), or the control board has gone into failure.
