SERVICE DIAGNOSTICS CYCLE NOTES
To invoke the Diagnostics Cycle, perform
the following key presses or actions in less than
6 seconds while in standby:
➙ Normal ➙ Heated Dry ➙ Normal
To rapid advance one interval at a time, press the
Invoking Service Diagnostics clears all status and
last ran information from memory and restores
defaults; It also forces the next cycle to be a sensor
Calibration cycles begin with a "sensor check" to
determine whether the dishwasher has an OWI soil
sensor or not. If the control detects an OWI, it forces
two rinses to occur prior to Final Rinse (to assure
clear water), then calibrates the OWI during the final
I cycled the power breaker and tried your suggestion. The "NORMAL", "HEATED DRY" buttons illuminate simulataneously but the washer does nothing until the door is closed. THEN the motor will start rumbling, I'll call it, and it apears to be draining. If I don't close the door to initiate this action then the "NORMAL, "HEATED DRY" lights will illuminate and the washer will just sit there with the lights on for 60-70 seconds, then go out
well, it appears to be draining the water that was in it. It was working fine, then all of a sudden this happened after it completed its last, working, wash cycle. It's not attempting to put in the water. We also cannot turn "OFF" the "HEATED DRY" option or select the "DELAY" options. It's like it's locked into "NORMAL" HEATED DRY" option only AND yes I have a meter but I'll need to remove the panels if were going into that aspect of repairs
Press and hold the Heated Dry key for
5 seconds to turn off (or on) the Control
tried the control lock & unlock already before chatting with you guys, no avail
no blinking lights at all at any point of troubleshooting, even after cycling the power breaker and the diagnostic steps from earlier ---- my latest observation is that because of the "HEATED DRY" light being illuminated and unable to extinguish the light (turn it off) by pressing the button it will only allow me to change the "CYCLE" options to "LIGHT", 'NORMAL", "POTS & PANS". i think that was standard before just bringing it up to your attention of details for this purpose
A rapidly blinking LED over
one of the keys of the keypad
(or sometimes a "dead"
keypad/console) indicates one
or more key switch lines are
stuck or shorted on either the
control or the keypad. To
determine if the control or
keypad is faulty, do the
Unplug dishwasher or disconnect
Open the dishwasher door.
Open console and disconnect the
keypad ribbon connection from
the control (at P1). Make sure all
other connections are made.
Put console back together. Do not
close the dishwasher door.
Plug in dishwasher or reconnect
Wait 5 seconds.
Close dishwasher door.
Monitor the control's response:
If the control is OK (no longer
sees shorts with the keypad
unplugged), it will respond by
turning on a Drain Motor for
2 minutes. Check and/or
replace the keypad if the
control responds OK.
If the control is not OK (still
unplugged), then the drain
motor will NOT respond and
will remain off. If no response,
replace the control.
I'll try this and let you know something
with the instructions provided I did as instructed and the "DRAIN MOTOR" action was initated for the 2 minute cycle so I will come to the conclusion that the keypad is bad and I'll need another one
