Please mention the nature of the fault seen on the machine. It is possible that a failure of the main circuit board means that in most case the board had to be replaced as there is very little that be done for component replacement except if the damage is clearly visible.

Hi All,
Great web-sitevery useful. To add, my SB907 has same problem - not heating. Found no open/short circuit in heater - found this forum - followed through with removal of circuit board and ... BINGO ! Dirty big black burn mark under relay ! Am now wondering if I can "just replace relay"... any thoughts? Thanks Rick

Electrical burning smell coming from control panel on westinghouse dishwasher


Had the same issue with a 903sa. Strong burning smell. Continued to run for a while then just died. Opened the control panel (4 screws holding the plastic part at the top of the door on - open the door to access).

Mains feed into the controller was totally fried. Case was all melted. Very nasty. There was nothing obvious on the Board other than a mains resistor that looked like it had been pretty hot at some stage. The three pin mains connector (at least I think it was 3 pins) was just a big, charred bit of goop.

How do I actually get to the circuit board on dishwasher


Undo the top two screws on each side of the back of the door and all the ones across the top edge. Then the panel can be manouvered away from the door. The catch mechanism tends to hold the panel back and there is only just enough free length on the wiring to pull the panel away a couple of inches, but it's enough to access the on/off switch and control module.

It won't be the defrost timer, unusual, it will be the defrost element inside the freezer section behind the back panel or a shorted defrost klixon.
