Factory Test Mode:
The Factory Test Mode, or FTM, is run on each unit during final QC to ensure
that all of the components are operating normally. The FTM runs the unit
through an abbreviated wash cycle and checks various sensors for response and
is a valuable diagnostic tool. By knowning the timing of the FTM (shown below), a
technician can check for operation of the component in question at the expected
MAKE SURE THAT THE UNIT IS SAFE TO OPERATE, AND ALL PLUMBING
CONNECTIONS ARE MADE PRIOR TO RUNNING THE FACTORY TEST MODE.
To Enter the FTM:
1. Press the SECURE key for three (3)
seconds. Then press the SECURE key
again for three (3) seconds
to exit the secure mode.
2. Press DELAY and SANI RINSE keys simultaneously to start the factory testmode.
3. Close the dishwasher door. Be sure to close the detergent dispenser prior to
initiating the FTM to check for proper operation.
4. All LED’s on the dishwasher will turn
ON for about 15 seconds then turn off.
5. The factory test will begin. Use the timing chart below for expected operation
timing of the component in question. If during the FTM one of the electric components fails to operate at the scheduled time, it is likely that either
the component has failed, the wiring has failed or the Power Board has partially failed. Start by checking the component in question and working back to the Power Board. Use extreme caution when working with live components. After test has been completed, press CANCEL key once to exit from the factory test mode. To exit the factory test mode at anytime, press the CANCEL key once. If the FTM has completed without error, a solid green light at the bottom of the door (ED model only) and three beeps will signal that all the major components are operating correctly.
