Our dishwasher is no longer cleaning dishes very well and usually the detergent tab that we put in does not dissolve completely.

\015\012There are various reasons for the Dishwasher not cleanig the Dish properly, From your query we can understand that, it must be issue with the Dishwasher selecter switch..

\015\012CHECKING:
\015\012
\015\012A switch is a mechanism that can make, break, or change the connections in a given electric circuit. Dishwasher cycle selector switches determine which cycle is to be used. Theyl have metal prongs, called terminals, extending out from the body of the switch.
\015\012
\015\012To access your dishwasher's cycle selector switch, first remove the inner panel of the dishwasher door. This can be accomplished by removing 6-10 screws. There may or may not be a smaller panel covering the back of the control panel at the top of the dishwasher door. It will be held in place with either a couple of screws or a couple of clips.
\015\012
\015\012Remove the cycle selector switch from unit. It will most likely be secured to the door frame with a few screws. The terminals extending from the body of the switch are grouped in pairs of two, one group of terminals for each button. Each group must have its wires removed for testing. Carefuly remove the wiring harness leads from the first pair of terminals of the switch. Do not pull on the wire itself. Needle nose pliers may be needed to remove the wire from the terminal. Replace the wires to the terminals before you move on to the next pair of terminals.
\015\012
\015\012Use your ohmmeter to test your switch for continuity. Set your ohmmeter to measure resistance at a scale of Rx1. Touch the metal tips of the test leads together and zero your ohmmeter by adjusting the thumbwheel in the front of the meter until the needle reads '0' on the scale.
\015\012
\015\012You are going to test one button at a time. Push in on the button of the switch terminals that you are testing. Touch an ohmmeter probe to each terminal. The ohmmeter reading should change from infinity to zero ohms. Keep each probe in contact with its terminal and press in on a different button, releasing the first button. The ohmmeter reading should go back to infinity. Replace the wires to the terminal and repeat these steps for each pair of terminals of the selector switch.
\015\012
\015\012Any readings that differ from the ones presented here are indicative of a defective cycle selector switch that will need to be replaced
\015\012
\015\012You can replace this switch to make it work properly..

GE PDW7300 dishwasher - must slam the door shut to get a light on the panel and when the START button is pressed, it looks like the dishwasher is cycling thru a wash, but there is no water. When I press the START cycle again, it seems like it thinks its pumping the water out for a few minutes, then the light will go off. If I start it again and push really hard against the door, I can hear the water go on. But if I stop pushing the door, the water stops. The dishwasher was installed in 2001, but

We have a Bosch dishwasher SHX46A06 UC/21. It continually runs. We couldn't find a diagnostic test for our model, but we did for another model. We held down the power scrub and regular wash cycles then turned it on and pressed them again. The delicate/econo light started blinking. Looking at some of the blogs, most often it seems to be the heater or the control panel - does this diagnostic test help to pinpoint what could be wrong? Also, where can we find a good manual for our model - we're havi

Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2-400-XTB7 Problem started with display cycling through delay times. (1 hr, 2hr, 3 hr and so on.) Was able to cancel that for short periods and then it would repeat the cycle. Was able to run dishwasher by pressing different buttons. Then it would start a cycle but did not run full cycle. Now control panel doesn't work at all. When buttons are pushed, lights do not light up and nothing happens. Is stuck in lock mode.

I have a maytag mdb6650 aww dishwasher. The dishwasher just stopped. The light on the control panel is on. If I push the buttons to try a different cycle, the light over light wash remains lit, so the buttons don't seem to respond. I was wondering if it is the control assembly, or if the door switch is not working. The handle cracked a while ago, but if the dishwasher still worked even though the handle had cracked in half.

My wife opened door during cycle. When she closed door it would no longer run. Looking at problems and recomendations on similar models, I replaced the board. Did not fix the problem. I have checked the fuse and the door switches for continuity and all seem ok. The only lights on the panel that come on are: under cycle- Pots & Pans, Light. Under Options - Heated dry. No other lights work and the dishwasher does not operate.

Control panel will not light up, the dishwasher was running and now it has stopped mid cycle and will not do anything. I just replaced the control panel (black plastic with buttons, not control circuitry). was running the diswasher and it seemed to be working fine, then stopped. water is standing in tub, I checked the float, I don't think the float is the problem. There is power to the outlet, no tripped breakers. But control panel will not light up.

The touchpad buttons no longer work to select a wash cycle. When I push "Start" the light above "Smart Wash" comes on and the dishwasher operates normally, but I cannot select any other cycles and the light only comes on after pressing "Start", not before. Also, the Options buttons seem to work normally but the delay button doesn't scroll through 2-4-6, it only toggles the light on and off above "4". The item is 15 months old. Thank you.

The normal wash light won't come on, the only setting that seems to wash a full cylce is antibacterial. It seems like something burned out. What should I be looking at as a possible cause/fix.

I purchased my Kenmore Elite dishwasher, model # 8542514, in 2003 & replaced the control board in 2006. Recently, I accidently opened the dishwasher during a wash cycle, but it continued working once I closed it. It seemed to work fine for a few more weeks. Now, however, I get nothing--no lights....just doesn't start up. I tried pressing all the code solutions listed on this site, but no luck so far. It seems to me that the control board/panel should last more than 3-4 years.
