OK. I've bent the striker down and am trying a cycle. Fingers crossed!
Well, that didn't work. Do you have a part number and instructions to replace the touch control panel?
Could the problem also be due to a crack in one of the ribbon cables? This problem came up after I had to replace the fuse a couple of times.
Well, I spent $161 to purchase a new control panel. I installed it and still have the same problem. The dishwasher stopped and had to be restarted 10+ times to get through the load. I've now addressed all three of the possible causes that you identified, and the problem is as bad as ever. What now?
Thanks. I'll give this a try.
OK, so I bypassed the door switch, ran it, and still the same problem: it stops 10 to 12 times mid cycle (with the green light flashing) and needs to be re-started. Now what?
I already replaced the touch control panel a week ago when you told me to do that.
I had replaced the control board before I contacted you the first time.
I've now done the following:
(1) Replaced the control board
(2) Replaced the touchpad
(3) Bent the door latch up
(4) Bypassed the door latch
What else is there?
Some more background: This all began when I had a problem with the fuse blowing repeatedly. I replaced this several times. I tried putting a piece of insulation between the fuse and the inside of the dishwasher thinking that heat from the dishwasher was heating the fuse. At some point this problem with it needing to be restarted began, and so I replaced the control board thinking it might cure both issues. At first it did, but then the problem with the restarting began again and quickly got worse. Then I contacted you.
Could there be anything with a heat sensor or such that could be at fault?
