My dishwasher won't start. A green light blinks. I got a new board. All the switches work. When I turn it on, I can hear a click. The light still blinks a couple of times and it shuts off. Could you tell me what could be wrong? Thank you!
Answer Hello Donald,
When the clean light flashes it can only mean one of two things. It can mean that the clean button is stuck and the control panel W10083050 is in need of replacement or it can mean that the heating circuit has failed. The way to tell which has happened is that if the heating circuit has failed, the clean light will flash seven times with a pause and then flash seven times with a pause, etc. If this is the case, you need to troubleshoot the heating circuit. There are five components: the heating element, the high limit thermostat, the door switch, the control, and the wiring harness.
There should be a tech sheet behind the kick panel which will show the wiring diagram. This should enable you to shoot through the circuit with an ohm meter. If it reads open from the control board, you will need to test each component individually. It will also guide you through a self diagnostic test that is necessary to run through to clear the code so the unit can run a cycle once repaired. Let us know if we need to render further assistance.
I just recently replaced my water inlet valve with a new one. The dishwasher does not filll up the way that it used to. Does it fill up by time or is done by the float? I checked the float and the micro switch underneath with my meter and it checked out okay. The supply pressure is 80 psi,and the water inlet is clear of any debris.
Answer David, Actually the water fill cycle is controlled bu time and the float switch, which ever "opens" first. Under ideal conditions, the dishwasher starts to fill,(1.7 gal.) then the fill stops for a few seconds, then the motor starts to run. W10158389 is the correct fill valve part number based on the model number you supplied, and as long as you have a 3/8" I.D. water supply line, you should be fine. Here's some tech info " Supply Water Flow Rate: To fill 1.9 liters (2 quarts) in 27 seconds, 120 psi max., 20 psi min. Supply Water Temperature: 49°C (120°F) (Before starting a cycle, run water from sink faucet until hot). Water Charge: (Normal cycle with OWL) 6.5 liters. Fill valve Energized at beginning of all washes and rinses (up to 2:50 min.) so you can verify the operation of the machine.
