FixAll :

HI thanks for choosing Just Answer, do yo have a model number by chance?

Customer:

not on hand but this is the part #


CONTROL PANEL PART # XXXXX
Customer:

sorry that's the panel I am looking at purchasing

FixAll :

how old is dishwasher?

Customer:

about 4yrs Part Number: W10039780

Customer: DU930PWSS0 Whirlpool Dishwasher
FixAll :

yes thats control board, but if the control lights up its most likely not bad

FixAll :

when yo say you put it in reset mode are you talking about the cancel button?

Customer:

the indicator lights are off. as it is running in wash mode it lights up in drying mode

FixAll :

a hok

FixAll :

ah ok

FixAll :

so only some of the lights work?

Customer:

when I reset it all lights work and it default to "heavy" wash cycle, however the "drying" light is on while washing. the start button does not work at all

FixAll :

you can hear it washing ?

Customer:

not the cancel button. alternating the two middle buttons (sorry I am not at the dw) until panel lights up

FixAll :

what buttons are you hitting to reset?

FixAll :

oooh yes that is not a reset

FixAll :

that is a diagnostic mode

FixAll :

they all light up because its made to detect error coes

FixAll :

codes

Customer:

oh ok. well it starts the wash cycle

FixAll :

yes that is a test

Customer:

new panel?

FixAll :

if yo go thru that sequence again it should come ot of that

FixAll :

doesnt sound like a bad panel no sounds like yor just in the wrong mode

Customer:

I can put in other wash modes but start button does not work, nor does delay wash. I can select cycle type and cancel button work.

FixAll :

yes this all sonds like its in diagnostic mode

FixAll :

if yo know where the breaker is

Customer:

yes

FixAll :

yo shold try and sht it off for 5-10 minutes and turn it back on see if it corrects problem

Customer:

tried that too

Customer:

this is at a rental property and the front of the panel has worn thru on the start button

Customer:

meaning the protective pvc plastic over the button has worn off

FixAll :

oooh

FixAll :

yes then yo need the toch panel

FixAll :

touch panel

FixAll :

sorry

FixAll :

misunderstanding you

Customer:

it appears that there are several layers of plastic and that it is just the black plastic so I think it is still protected however a new panel seemed to be the answer

Customer:

not a symptom of temp fuse?

FixAll :

yes there are several layers but if it has worn thru it will not operate correctly

FixAll :

temp fuse will show no lights at all

FixAll :

will be dead

Customer:

ok. that's it then. thanks for confirmation

FixAll :

no problem at all!

FixAll :

if you have any other questions feel free no charge.

Customer:

ok thanks. have a good evening

FixAll :

you too
