DDW399W Danby Power button won't stay in place...washer powers down

Hi IFIXALL,
my DDW399W Danby suddenly doesn't hold the power button in place once pushed in. The button moves back a little, and the washer powers down. The washer's still functional when I hold the button pushed.

Could it be the button mechanics that broke? If yes, what part do I need to replace?
In another power light related solution earlier, you said we need to remove all T-20 screws to gain access behind the button cover. Do you mean to loosen and take out the entire stainless steel portion inside the washer?

Thanks for your help, Michael

I know your post is a bit old. I solved this by opening the outer shell and removing all screws attaching the control panel. The power switch needs to be replaced. I looked everywhere (including radio shack and lowes) but sears parts department is the best!

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=DDW399W&productCategoryId=0130000&brandId=3055&modelName=DISHWASHER&diagramPageId=00004&componentDescription=CONTROL%20PANEL&documentId=50031886&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

This should be the link of a diagram and info on the parts. They have just about every screw and bolt you need to repair you Danby. Also they have diagrams to show how it is all put together!

Good Luck!

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Thermal Fuse If the dishwasher won't start the thermal fuse might have blown. The thermal fuse helps to prevent damage to the dishwasher by turning off power so that it doesn't overheat. Once blown, the thermal fuse will have to be replaced for the dishwasher to work.

Door Switch The door switch, or switches, are sometimes called interlock switches. The door switch prevents the dishwasher from running while the door is open. If the dishwasher won't start, the switch or switches might be defective. To access the door switches, remove the control panel or inside door panel - depending on the model. They can be tested for continuity.

Main Control Board The main control board provides power to nearly every component of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher won't start the main control board might be defective. YOU should first check for more common parts. Many times control boards are replaced unnecessarily because the problem was not diagnosed properly.

Touchpad and Control Panel If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced. On some models the touchpad and control panel are sold together and will need to be replaced at the same time.

Touchpad If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced.

Timer The timer allows power to flow to the proper parts at the proper times. If the dishwasher won't start, the timer might be defective. Keep in mind that timers are often misdiagnosed as the cause of a problem. Check other components first before replacing the timer.

Error code e01


do the following steps: God bless you
To start test program, press and hold both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD program buttons, then turn unit on by pressing ON/OFF button. When program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press ON/OFF button.To check program indicator lights (POWER SCRUB PLUS, REGULAR WASH and RINSE & HOLD), press and hold each program button. When REGULAR WASH program button is pressed, CLEAN light also comes on.
To start testing, press both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD buttons a second time. When testing has ended and a fault was detected, the following indicator lights will be lit:
POWER SCRUB PLUS = Heater fault
REGULAR WASH = Water filling fault (over or under filling)
RINSE & HOLD = NTC (temperature sensor) fault ? note circulation motor stops shortly after it started during an NTC fault
To check for heater, high limit or flow switch problems, start testing until heating starts. Using a meter with a current coil, measure current going into dishwasher. If current is ~ 11 A, then heater, high limit and flow switch are OK. If current stays at ~ 1.5-2 A, then heater, high limit or flow switch are faulty.
If water level switch (f1) has failed (opened), REGULAR WASH light will come on and unit will continually fill and drain where testing won't be completed. If flow switch (e5) has failed (opened), water won't heat (to 150?F) and water won?t stop circulating. If NTC probe (f2/f4) has failed (opened), RINSE & HOLD light will come on immediately and testing will end shortly after water has started circulating.
If more than one fault occurs, more than one light will be lit.

Water is full and won't shut off dnby ddw399w countertop dishwasher


Hi, There is a water level switch in the d/w. located in front corner. You can move it up and down while listening for a clicking noise. Sometimes soap will gum them up so they don't move. when it is overflowing, will the water shut off if you turn the machine off or do you need to turn the water off at the faucet?
Please let me know so that I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Danby counter top dishwasher power switch problem


In regards to the problem with the power switch , I was able to get the 800 number from the store that we bought it at. Called the number-got right through-and they emailed me a COMPLETE breakdown and parts manual for my specific machine.

And I was able to order the part from them right over the phone and it was shipped out immediately. Very pleased with the service. Any one needs the parts breakdown I can email it to them.

Good luck-
