Had a similar problem with mine a few weeks ago. It was intermittent in not working on delay. My first thought was that the close switch was not working. Upon disassembling the door, and fiddling with the switch, I heard some sizzling on one of the circuit boards. A little more digging revealed some cold solder joints on a couple of board mounted relays.
I removed the board, re-soldered the loose relays, and everything has worked fine since.
GenTech nailed that one. I had the same problem and found the 2 relays (light blue colored) had loose solder joints. I resoldered them and everything works fine! In order to remove the board, I had to pull off all the connections. I had a hell of a time removing one spade lug and ultimately had to rip it off & resolder it. A more experienced repair person might have been able to remove that one w/o the trouble I had.

Complete drain must occur before spin. A no drain situation would be an actual full pool of water seen in the bottom of the machine if all the cloths were removed, sounds like you are experiencing a spin enable switch failure, which mainly prevents final high speed spin leaving the cloths dripping wet. The spin enable switch contacts become tarnished/corroded over time resulting in poor connection. If the door lock light comes on than your door lock wax motor is working. The spin enable switch is the last switch to the right in the door lock unit where the light bulb is. Part# is 22002162. If there is an actual pool of water in the bottom of the machine as if you simply removed the cloths from the unit but left the wash water, than you should look first look to your drain pump for failure, or obstruction of foreign objects, or excess lint in the pump.

Dishwasher not draining completely problem usually occurs due to clogged/blocked drain hose-filter assembly or the drain pump not working. First try to clean the drain hose and drain pump filter located inside the front bottom panel for any clogs, then check drain pump operation. Take off the bottom access panel to clean the drain pump filter and hose. If the problem returns after cleaning then it is the drain pump that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions. Kevin
MAKE SURE YOU CAN COLLECT THE WATER AND WILL NOT DAMAGE ANYTHING BEFORE YOU DO THE FOLLOWING! In the front bottom right, is a water plug. unscrew it. water will drain. check if debis in there and look at impeller. The reason why the dial spins, is because it is giving you a fault code. count the number of the red light blinks. i have the diagnostic manual that has the fault codes that shows how to check components with an OHM meter
Look inside the machine on the floor will
be a small float valve. Looks like a small upside down cup. Lift it and
clear anything from underneath.
The valve is a safety feature
to stop the machine from over filling. If anything gets under the valve
it will jam open and stop the machine.
Check for a clog internal or external.
as much water our as you can. Open the cover on the floor of the
machine. Usually just turns and lifts out or snaps out some are screwed
in. Take your time and try not to force anything. Look for a clog
Check for clog in the drain. The dishwasher will
connect to the drain under your sink and run either directly to the
drain or into your disposal unit. Remove open the connections and look
for a clog. Clear if necessary.
Not the clog?
pumped out by the machine via an internal pump located under the base.
If it fails the water will collect until it trips the float valve.
First scoop out all the water from the machine and run it again. If
water comes in and it runs to the point it fills again and trips the
float then either the pump or timer is faulty.
the machine. It will be held in place by screws directly into the
counter top. You may have to lower it to get it out. The front feet
turn with a wrench to lower.
Turn off the water supply. Run the unit again until you get to the drain cycle.
a test light or voltage tester to the terminals at the pump. Check for
voltage at the pump. If you have voltage replace the pump. If no
voltage the timer is faulty.
Timer problem? Some can be replaced as a unit others are integral to the control panel. Turn style can be replaced. Touch control can not.

The drain inside the freezer is clogged. Your freezer goes into defrost every 8 to 10 hours. When it melts the ice built up on the coils, the water drains out of the freezer from a drain at the back down to a pan located under the fridge. You will need to remove the inside back panel of your freezer. Look at the bottom in the very back. There you will find a slopping place with a hole in the middle.This is the drain. There is something clogging that hole. I have found peas stopping them up. Take a turkey baster and fill with water. Push water into the drain hole then look for anything else that might clog the hole. Put unit back together. Problem solved.

hi,you need to switch the machine off,open the door and inside at the bottom is your drain ,lift out the filters and get a screwdriver there should be one screw to undo,get a pair of pliers and pull out the part you unsrewd.........have a good look inside there,should be something in there food/broken glass/ anything could be there...............................if not that its your drain pump.......
do they flash lik all on one side then the other? Start a cycle, then open the door. Do the lights flash the same way when you open the door as when it stops? if soyou may have a door that needs to be adjusted so it closes better. when the cycle ends, is there any standing water in the bottom? if so you may have a poorly routed drain hose or a partial clog in it. Last, pull the bottom panels off and look inside the bottom of the dishwasher and see if there is standing water down there . If ther is you have aleak somewhere or a bad drain pump. You r only other choice is a bad pressure switch. If youve already adjusted the water fil to the proper level ( just up to the grey plastic housing that the lower wash arm sits on) tehre really aernt any more options. Hope this helps!
