Customer Question

I opened up the door panel to look at the door latch, and I saw the sensors you were referring to, but in your answer earlier, you gave me a part # XXXXX the door latch only...I assume your thinking I need to replace the sensors as well?

yes ,, you need to replace the switches when you replace the latch but when you go to buy the latch look at it first ,, some comes with the switches already on it
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
can I replace just the switches?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
you can but if the latch is not closing then it will do it again but its worth a shot
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
the latch closes now ok.....it wasn't unlocked when the circuit breaker tripped...I still don't know what the pop noise was when the dishwasher stopped working
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
one of the switches most likely was the pop
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
so what do you think would happen if I try to run it again?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
if the switches did not burn though then it will run but is they are burnt then it will not do anything
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
have you seen this happen a lot with this model?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
that i cant say because i have seen this on all different makes and models and not just this one
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
thanks for your help--Ill try to fix it
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
glad to help .. have a good evening
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Sorry to say, it might have been a good guess, but the door latch switches are ok, I had them tested. I don't know what it is at this point, I'm thinking either the heater coil or the motor
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
if not the switches then it will be one of those two
