It's draining properly now. I don't know about the suds. Haven't checked. Not draining was the first problem we had. Replaced the drain pump and it fixed that but continued to run with little water. Checked the float switch found lots of water. Pumped it out and now it appears to be working great. Put rinse agent in. But not getting that blast of steam when I open it at the end and the dishes are very wet.
Not sure which buttons to push for the diagnostic test.
The first . Completing the cycle and draining at the end but no heat.
The second one was the first problem we had which I think we fixed by replacing the drain pump. That's what I think anyway! :)
Is it the control board that is $380??????
I'm so sorry. Duh. The two numbers are 43
Ok just one more question. You are sure that it's not the solder on the whatever part on the front like some of the boards say? My husband has a soldering tool! :)
We disassemblied the control board but there was nothing blown. Everything looked fine. Now it's back to it's original problem which is running forever with the number on 1.
Hi Tyler, We found that control board for $160 on ebay! Maybe they didn't know what they had. Anyway, installed it and although it's completing a full cycle now with the steam at the end, it seems that the dishes just aren't getting clean. I don't think the spray arm is rotating now. We also filled it up with JetDry.
Could all of these problems be the result of my son putting the liquid dish soap in the unit?
What do we need to replace now?
when I open it during the cycle, it appears that water is spitting and dripping from the arms
it doesn't appear to be filling
maybe continually draining????? but I don't hear it going through the sink the whole time, only at the beginning
You need to figure out if it's filling or not. If it's not filling, then your dishwasher is continuously draining and the unit is stuck in flood mode so you'd need to uninstall the dishwasher, remove the left side panel and remove the water in the base or make sure that the styrofoam puck (float device) is seated on the floor properly. If it's washing and filling but it's just not spraying---you'd need to replace your impeller kit on the circulation motor.
Ok. You know we removed the water in the base once but perhaps it's wet again since we've had it in and out and in and out.
Replacing my propeller arm was the next thing I thought we'd do.
Thanks so much Tyler. Happy Thanksgiving!
Checked the machine again. No water in the bottom and it doesn't appear that the float was disengaged. However, the problem is definitely that it is stuck in drain mode. Doesn't fill up. Spits water and then drains. Spits water and then drains.
That's what my husband says. Thanks so much for all of your help.
