If someone can help please!
the pump is running all the time even with the door open!
i have tried resetting and checking for blockages but all seems ok, the only thing i found strange was when resetting the display was supposed to read 0 but mine reads p0?
any suggestions please?
Remove the lower kick panel by removing the 2 screws located just below the door hinge point. There should be a relay to the left side of the middle of the dishwasher. It looks like this sort of:
! !----/ The arm looking part is the
! ! linkage that opens and close
------- the butterfly for draining.
! ! The other part is selinoid
! ! which is probably corroided
! ! or has overheated and is
!-----! stuck. Remove the power to the unit and remove the 2 screws and the c clip holding the linkage on. disconnect the wires at the connection which is front right of the selinoid. Use some 3 in 1 oil if you don't have any electronic cleaner, and work the selinoid up and down. It is highly magnetized, so use some back arm. After it moves freely, re-install. That should do it. Now get in there and make me a pie ;)

Did you have a power outage recently? They are notorious for damaging circuit boards--usually about 3-4 weeks after the power interruption strange things will either start happening or *not* happening with appliances due to damaged computer chips on the boards starting to fail. Your symptoms indicate either a blown user interface(push button panel) or a defective main control board(board with the brains on it) or both!
first most GM OEM systems will need to recognize the key first and foremost ,to do that you will need to roll window down on driver door,turn the key to the run position and with engine NOT running leave the key on for 10 minutes exactly ..then turn ignition off then try to start engine. if original system is working engine should start normally
there is a water level sensor in the bottom of the machine if this is faulty and stays on, this will indicate to the pump there is water still in the machine. I would check this sensor it might be blocked with debris and has blocked in the closed position. that woudl be the best start for this issue.
This depends what you mean by "runs". If the dishwasher continues with a wash cycle - i.e. circulating water - with the door open, the simple answer is that you have a defective door microswitch.
However, I suspect what you perceive to be the dishwasher running, is actually the drain pump running continuously. This happens when the anti-flood protection system has been activated and continues even when the door is opened. The simplest way to check is to open the door (while it's "running") and pour some water into the tub. If the water drains away immediately, this shows the drain pump is running and the anti-flood protection has been activated.
This may be due to water having leaked into the base of the dishwasher, but it could be as simple as a stuck or defective float-switch.
Please try the simple test above then post back for further assistance. If you're planning to investigate or repair this yourself, you're going to need a Torx T20 screwdriver and a multi-meter would be useful as well.
Your float may have got stuck or it's possible that you have water leaking into the bottom of the washer. In the bottom of the wash compartment, next to the drain you will find a plastic dome/mushroom (the float). You might need to rotate the bottom spray arm to see it.
Turn the washer on so that the pump starts to run, open the door and push down on the float. This should stop the pump running. When you let go of the float, if it rises back up on its own, then it's almost certain that you have water in the bottom of the washer. If this is the case please post back for further assistance. If the float stays down, then it may have simply got stuck.
Please try this simple test and post back with the results.
If you can't hear the pump over the door chime, when checking, roll down the window instead of opening the door, or have someone else listen outside the vehicle! To get the relay out, spray some wd 40 or other solvent around the base... it will seep into plug and make it easier to remove. (if it's bad, it will have to come out sooner or later!!) Did you replace the filter when you did the pump???
Typically you could possibly have a leak in the base or sump which activates a little float switch. This in turn switches the drain pump on continuously and deactivates the programing cycle.Sort out the leak.
