I have a Kenmore undercounter dishwasher..model 665.16022400. The "normal wash" light keeps blinking..nothing will work on it..I tried reseting didn't work, killed the breaker for a while, didn't work. I tool the panel off and reseated the ribbon connection to the electronic board..didn't work. I'm not sure if I should be replacing the electronic board, or the control panel that contains the buttons. None of the buttons appear to be stuck. thanks - Andrew


Hi,This is a common problem. As i cannot diagnose the machine myself, it would be tough to exactly comment on the fault. However, more often it is an issue with control panel keypad assembly.You need to replace that.Let me kno ... Kenmore 16024 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Maytag quiet series 300, model # MDBTT60AWW. The front control panel have some green lights on but the start/cancel button won't work. The dishwasher will work for 5 days and quit for 2-3 days then work again. I tried to reset the main electrical panel hoping the dishwasher will reset too but it didn't work. I opened the panel on the front door to see if water is getting into the electronic panel but it is dry. I'm wondering if it is the front control panel itself is the problem. I want

My KitchenAid KUDS01FLSS0 won't turn on when the "Start" button is pushed. Several months ago it began requiring multiple pushes to get it to start. All the cycle lights on the control panel work when pushed - except the "Start" button. Online & repair parts person suggested I replace the: - Tail Cable Ribbon; did not fix problem, then - - Electronic Control Board (interface) which also did not fix it.

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher with electronic controls. When I set the controls press the start pad and close the door it will not start. The light on the start pad just continues to blink. This happened about six months ago and the Sears serviceman pressed two of the control pads simultaneously and this reset the controls. Everything worked after he did this. What are the two control pads that you press to reset the controls?


This is difficult to find out. Try different combinations. Otherwise get the information from the SEARS serviceman. ... Dishwashers

Model mdb7601awb diswasher . Nothing works , no buttons torn on or work when pushed, no action. 1.Have checked power to unit and is ok 2.checked door switches (2) and both work properly. 3. no visual discoloration on circuit board. There is a blue dot on the wiring harness from control board to button panel.When evaluating with magnifing glass I believe this to be blue ink droplet and not any burnning of harness. Need a Guru.


I have had the board replaced 5 times and the entire dishwasher replaced once. It was necessary to go to the state attorney general to get Maytag to extend the warranty.

Frigidaire FPHD2491 electronic buttons not working. Only China/Crystal cycle will light up and can be selected. All others do nothing. I checked the control lock and it does nothing. seems like the electronics are messed up or something. I turned power off and back on through the breaker and it made no difference.


Hello bamspry - From what you are describing if only the China/Crystal icon is working, then the dishwasher could possibly be experiencing a communication problem coming from the main control panel or wiring failure. If I was in your position, I p ... Frigidaire FPHD2491K Builtin Dishwasher

I have a Kenmore elite 13102 dishwasher touchpad that has begun to crack around the start button. Does this necessitate changing out the whole electronic control pad or is there a part that is the "overlay" to the control panel? The functions for each button on the panel work fine. LH

Zanussi Dishwasher ZDT6053. Holding the On/Off button causes the indicator lights to work correctly, but as soon as you remove your finger from the spring loaded button, all the lights go off. Would guess that on/off button should electronically latch via the control board. Have removed mains power for 60 secs in the hope of a 'hard' reset, but no fix. Is there anything obvious to check or fix or must it be a replacement control board?

I have a 6th sense dishwasher purchased new October 2004. It has been working properly and then has just stopped the next time I tried to use it - it will not turn on no matter what buttons I push - no response. I have checked the power out let with another appliance and that works so it is not the power supply from the power point. I can only think it must be a fuse or the controller. Can you please advise best course of action? Thanks Helen


I rang the appliance man to fix the problem.\015\012\015\012Thanks anyway Helen ... Westinghouse Dishwashers

My daughter's friend bought a Ford Explorer 1997 with approx. 150k on it. After only a few months, it quit working? He replaced the battery, alternator, starter and the whole ignition switch on the steering column. I ran for 2-3 weeks and now he says "Won't do anything". No, lights, no starter noise when trying to crank, no interior lights ... nothing. He took the battery out and tried it in another car... it worked fine. Any suggestions? I'm thinking a electronic control module.

Dishwasher (Whirlpool Model DU930PWQ0) won't pump out. Problem occurred after door was opened during a cycle. Then the pump-out function ceased to work. Washer fills and pumps correctly during the wash cycle. Any suggestions? My guess is that the electronic control may be faulty and it is not opening the solenoid valve for the drain cycle. The other option I have thought of is that the solenoid valve may be faulty and is not responding to the signal from the controller. The dishwasher is n

My Kenmore dishwasher model #66515639000 quit working. It was washing dishes just fine one day and then the next the buttons weren't working properly. The pots & pans button was flashing with the cancel button. After searching on your site, I tried to resent the control panel by pressing the normal wash button and the air dry button 3 times then opening and closing the dishwasher.

Hello, I've been working on a Bosch Dishwasher. It has no display of any kind, and there's a strange grunting sound coming from the wash motor when power is applied (like if you had just plugged it in), as if it's trying to start. The junction box is getting 120V, all connections to the junction box are fine, and the display board and the main control board are all getting the proper voltage. Now, we've already replaced the main control board and the problem persists. The tech line suggested

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.

Current problem - the machine starts up and fills with water and it sounds like it's running OK, then it will just stop, sometimes for a couple of minutes sometimes longer.
