To reach it, you need to remove the control panel\015\012cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door.

If that's the problem, the wires must be\015\012repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the\015\012wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower\015\012part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer.

I have a Dishlex Global 500 that displays "OF" It happened during a cycle and no button-pushing changes anything. I tried unplugging it from the power to try for some sort of reset with no success.

Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher model number 665.1374 or 665.1384 I am a technician. This unit does nothing. It has power and ground. I have tested the door switches. They test good. If I unplug the unit and plug it back in then it will run a drain cycle, at least that is what I think it is doing. The motor runs for about 4 minutes. Once it shuts off, there is no further response. No control indicators illuminate. No response from pushing any of the touch buttons.

PDW9280J10SS dishwasher has been in use for about 3 years. The control panel is not working properly. I use the up/down arrows and it turns on heated dry etc. When I push the heated dry button, it changes the lights to the different cycles (which is what the arrow keys used to do). 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.

Continuous alarm after a power failure an alarm started going off in the door of the dishwasher. the push button panel is not functioning. I opened the door panel and found an electronic control circuit board. It is this board that is making the noise. I unplugged the black and white pair of wires on the lower right side of the board and the noise stopped. this must supply power to board. Anyone know what this problem is?

Quit working during wash cycle, about 6 liters of water left in bottom, looks like it quit during rinse cycle. There is power to the door switch and door switch works shutting off power when door is opened. However the control panel does not respond to any push button. I have had a problem in the past with moisture from the door vent getting into the control panel area causing the push buttons to become eratic.


The capacitors in the control panel could be bad or have burnt out. Do check all connnections and if necessary, check the continuity of the power to and from the control panel with an ohm/voltmeter. ... Dishwashers

Our AEG Favorit 50620 dishwasher won't start. When I push the power button, the power light comes on, but none of the other lights. Pushing the function buttons has no effect. The door is fully closed, and it was working perfectly before. I have tried turning it off and on, unplugging it etc. Nothing works. Interestingly, if you push more than one function button at the same time, some of the function lights come on, but then when you try to start the cycle it still won't work. Help!

I looked at the nearest outlet beneath the sink, but did not find anything unplugged.
