Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Turn the dishwasher off.

Pick 3 buttons on the control panel then Press them in the following sequence:


Each button must be pushed within 1 second, afterwards all the lights on the control panel will light up then the clean light will begin to flash. The Service Diagnostics Cycle will start when the door is closed.
The flashing sequence will give you the error code. It does this by flashing in two stages.

It will flash "X" amount of times, then pause 2 seconds, and flash "Y" amount of times, then pause 5 seconds and start over again.

In order to tell you what error code is coming up I will need to know the values of X and Y, thanks.

Ok so the 5-1 error is a door stuck open error. Here is the tech data sheet for that model, refer to page 7 and follow the trouble shooting procedures for that error. It is probably a faulty door switch or latch mechanism.

Hi there,
I was just getting back with you, I see the question is still open and I have not heard back from you is there something else I can help you with?

now I get after fix ing the door switch 62 62 62 so I know that's the inlet valve so I disconnect it and get same code 62 62
Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 8 months ago.

ok if you have a meter you need to the check the ohms of the water inlet valve it should have between 890 and 1090 ohms if not replace it because its bad. If it checks ok then the unit has a wiring issue between the valve and the main control board.
