PROBLEM: Won't Run and LED Above Key(s) is Flashing Rapidly
Short circuit(s) in keypad or
in control's input lines that
read the keys.
Don't replace both:
See first section of
"Checking Keypad Operation" for test to
determine whether shorts are in the
keypad or the control.
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.
How do I open console? Remove whole front of door?
around the inside of the door there are screws, remove them and lift the inner door panel up. On some of these you just remove the ones near the top and the control will come off without removing the whole inner panel.
14 screws, no separate panel, will have to take off whole door.But that is it, either replace the control or the keypad? any ballpark figure on what each costs? is it cheaper to replace dishwasher?
