MY DISHWASHER IS FILLING WITH WATER BUT DOES NOT GO INTO WASH

This answer was rated:

MY DISHWASHER IS FILLING WITH WATER BUT DOES NOT GO INTO WASH CYCLE. JUST SHUTS OFF. IF I TURN IT ON AGAIN AND THE SHUT IT OFF MANUALLY, IT WILL DRAIN THE WATER. JUST STOPS AFTER FILL UP. FOR A WHILE, AFTER IT FILLED UP AND SHUT OFF, I COULD HIT THE START BUTTON AGAIN AND SOMETIMES IT WOULD START. NOT ANYMORE. IT FILLS UP AND SHUTS OFF.

Any blinking lights on the control panel?

No, nothing blinks.

Ok so just to clarify, you hit the start button, the machine fills, then it stops and does nothing, If you hit cancel it will drain?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


correct

Ok in that case sounds like you are correct in your assumption it is the control board, This will need to be replaced.

To do this open the door, remove all the screws around the inner liner behind the control panel, Lift the control panel out, you will be greeted by the control board, At this point it will be a case of a couple of screws and swapping wires from old to new controls.

Click here to order the replacement part

I recommend you purchase the part here since they give a full year warranty unlike other suppliers who only give a 90 day warranty.

Thanks Mike. I have ordered the part on the site you suggested. Now just gotta wait for part and then install. I took apart the dishwasher and it looks pretty easy. My husband says he is gonna hang out my "shingle" for repair service. Sometimes I just want to do things myself. Ha Ha

Ha Ha great! when you do it yourself you know it gets done right :)

Have him make dinner tonight :)
