Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
This model sn is HH778455B. I will tell you that in 2010 I had the "repair" done for this recall but I have 2 of these in my house. I came home about a month ago with something that smelt like it was burning and it was. My dishwahsers computer module and the wiring harness. GE is coming out to "look" at this next week to see if they will take care of since it is the reason for the recall but they were not biting on the one I have asked you about.
I did replace the module. I do have a meter to test for low voltage. After replacing the module, the other way I could keep the alarm from sounding was to unplug the 3 prong plug that has 2 wires going to it on the far, left, bottom corner. Even with the 2 single wires plugged in at the "circle" the alarm would not sound if this 3 prong plug was pulled out. I am not sure if that helps you. I am not very good with the meter thing. Can you tell me what I put where for this test? Thank you!
It took me a second to open it up but yes, it will spin by hand.
I disconnected the plug at the blower and plugged everything else back in at the board, the alarm sounds. :(
The reason the alarm stops with either the 3 prong plug (bottom left corner of module) is pulled out or the plug pulled out of the "circle" is b/c it is a dark gray wire that runs from the "circle to the 3 prong plug and is joined there with a white wire.
It's 12:23 a.m. my time. It is ok with me if you would like to pick this up again later. I signed up for text alerts. Your call.
I apologize- this wire is dark gray from the "circle" plug then it is connected to a black wire that runs to the 3 prong plug where a white wire is plugged into the plastic plug in as well. I did not see any numbers but the white wire that runs from this plug within inches is connected by a splitter and connects 2 more white wires. One runs to the blower plug you had me check and the other to the soap dispenser.
I'm with you. I will tell you this, if it helps, when I unplugged the detergent dispenser and the alarmed sounded, I realized that the blower motor, I disconnected last night was not plugged in and the alarm still sounded. Did you get my message about the keypad question? I don't see it listed under my responses.
I still don't see it listed so I will retype. I had an epiphany that maybe my other keypad is bad as well. I plugged it into the old module, it didn't stop the alarm so I just assumed it was the module and ordered a replacement. I didn't dawn on me until now that maybe the keypad to the other dishwasher is bad as well and I either just need a keypad or both module and keypad. What are your thoughts?
I am in total agreement with you and I have already placed the order. Thanks for you help. I will let you know how it works out.
Please remember to leave positive feedback before you leave. If you have any other questions, please let me know!. You may continue asking follow-up questions until you have all the information you need, even after rating my service. Thank you!
I replaced the keypad. That was it. It works great and I did not need the module so I am bagging it up and sending it back.
