\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012for using FixYa. This issue can be either due to a faulty door latch or\015\012door lock switch which is not engaging itself. And, if the door latch will not\015\012engage the dishwasher will sense it as open door and will not start the cycle. The\015\012light also blinks when the dishwasher detects a no-fill\015\012condition. You’ll need to get access to the fill valve by removing left\015\012panel, look at back to see where valve is when you get to it remove one of the\015\012wires and set meter to ohms setting and put a lead on each tag on valve. The\015\012reading you should be about 3.6k ohm if you don’t get a reading then the valve\015\012is at fault. I'll also suggest you to check the detergent dispenser\015\012solenoid for this issue. Remove the door panel and see if there is a round\015\012item at the dispenser assembly with two wires attached to it. Put the\015\012dishwasher into a cycle and when the noise appears, gently press on the\015\012solenoid to see if that is where the noise is coming from. Please do\015\012accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further\015\012assistance.

After a power surge the dishwasher does not work at all. It just beeps constantly. There are no lights on the touch pad at all. The only thing that stops it from beeping is to remove the 2 pin black and white wires. I replaced the control module. Nothing changes. Do I need to replace the touch pad? What about the 3 digit clock? These parts together cost 145 dollars. I do not want to buy these parts and put them in to find out that did not fix the issue. I also unplugged the

Whirlpool dishwasher has line voltage in and has power up to the control pad but nothing is working, no light and will not turn on. It was in the middle of a wash when it quit.

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

I have an 8 year-old Kenmore 665.16912 dishwasher. Worked fine until two days ago. Then it stopped working altogether: nothing lights up on the front panel. I have checked the 120 in the electrical box, the door switch is working, the thermal fuse is working and there is 120 volts at the white and black connections to the timer control board. I bought a new timer control board for $120 and that did not fix the problem. What else could be causing the unit to completely stop working?

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.

I have a mdd8000aws dishwasher. After a power outage (2 days) the power came back on, and the bottom drawer no longer works. It still make the chiming noise when the drawer is opened, but the control panel is not fully lit up and the washer will not start in any mode. The lights seem to flicker for a short moment and then they all stay very lightly lit up. Is this just a bad control panel or is there some other circuit that needs replaced? BTW, the top drawer works perfectly.

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.

The hidden control panel has only about half the lights showing what function is pressed. A couple of days ago the washer would not start. The only function which would work was the far left sensor light. After trying to cut power and pushing other buttons, to no avail, we let the machine sit a couple days. It now works again with only half the lights on function pad working. It acts like there was a electrical short.

I have a KitchenAid dishwasher model KUDC10IXWH1 that has no control power. I have already verified that there is 120V at the control board. The unit kept the lights on after the cleaning cycle was done and I couldn't shut them off. I reset the electrical breaker and now nothing works, but the board has power. Please give any advice you might have. I was thinking of replacing the board, but I'm not sure if it is the board or the front control panel. Any way to tell?

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model #DU920PFGQ4. The controls locked light is flashing, and when I press the air dry key for 5 seconds it won't unlock, however the cancel/drain light starts flashing. When I press the cancel key the controls lock light will stop flashing, but will resume as soon as I release the cancel key. I have tried disconnecting power for 24 hours, but as soon as I plug it back up it does the same thing. Nothing else on the control panel will work.

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model #SHU43C02UC/14, which has stopped working - no water enters the inside nor is there any drain cycle - just nothing. At the same time, I had to have the new control board put in as part of the Bosch recall. The tech comes out, puts in the new board - still nothing. He says something is wrong with the board even though the problem existed before the new board was installed. He takes everything back to his shop and tells me he's trying to contact Bosch tech support
