Whirlpool adp 6515ix dishwasher start button is flashing in 4 time cycles-what does this tell me please. None of the manuals indicate what the flashing could be signalling.

How to test for power in the control panel


see this tips. God bless you
If your dispenser does not open First check to make sure it is thoroughly cleaned. Check the latching mechanism, does it appear to be latching? On some models there is a spring that breaks off. In that case you will need to replace the dispenser.

Next thing to check is to get the tech sheet out and see if the dispenser opens at the pre determined time. If it does not you will need to remove the front panel and maybe the console cover depending on the model. Then you will need to see if the wax motor that opens the dispenser has continuity. The tech sheet might also have the Ohm reading that the wax motor should have. Depending on model it is somewher between 600- 2800 ohms. If it has no continuity or is out of range replace the wax motor. Follow the Dispenser Replacement tutorial for replacing the wax motor. If the wax motor checks out good and the dispenser will not open, you will need to replace the main control board/ Timer follow this tutorial to replace the control.

The other type of dispenser is a mechanical style used on GE and many others. This type of dispenser has a little cam that breaks off. You will need to remove the front panel and maybe the console to access the mechanism, this part is sometimes available but you might need to replace the unit. The Dispenser replacement tutorial will walk you thru this.9_25_2012_6_43_59_am.jpg

Glrs237zdw temp goes from 29 to 60


I am not sure if you said you checked the=> 5303918476 Defrost Control Board or here=> 5303918476 If you replaced the defrost thermostat inside the freezer that is most likely not the problem. These defrost control boards will really cause strange things to happen. Sometimes by unplugging and taking out the control board you will see burn marks or signs of heat damage on the printed circuit, not always. Unplug and open the control panel inside the fresh food compartment=> GLRS237ZW2 Control Panel

You will see part/location number 23 is your 5303918476 Defrost Control Board If I misunderstand please let me know so I can help you resolve this problem. Thanks Sea Breeze

Error codeE6 F2


Remove the power from the oven. Open the control panel and unplug the key pad ribbon from the control board. Assemble the control panel back and turn the power on. Wait a few hours.
If the error code came back on, replace the control board.
If the error code did not show up, replace the control panel (the key pad comes as a control panel assembly).

- The part number for the black/stainless control panel AP3131755

Good luck.

My machine wach but do not spin a the end.


Note: This solution is intended only for asker qualityisc as per Live Chat session discussion. Error code reads E47 which means the Control board thinks the PTC circuit (wax motor) is open.

Unplug the machine then remove the spring-loaded wire loop that holds in place the front of the bellows over the lip of the door opening in the front panel.

Using needle nose pliers, start where the spring and wire are connected at the bottom of the bellows and pull the wire out of the groove of the bellows then pull the bellows off of the lip of the front panel.

Remove the screws securing the door lock and switch assembly to the front panel. Once the screws are removed, lift the door lock and switch assembly then pull it away from the front panel.

Take the door lock and switch assembly out of the machine and disconnect the electrical connections.

Measure the resistance of the wax motor. The normal resistance is around 1500 ohms. Shorted or open circuit wax motor means the door lock and switch assembly needs to be replaced.
27a1c27.jpg

Simply
replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #131763202) if the wax motor reads shorted or open to address the issue. But if the wax motor resistance is normal, check the continuity of the door lock and switch assembly wire harness, particularly the wax motor wire harness. Start with the continuity of the red/black wire of the wax motor harness to each of the red/black wires of the door lock and switch assembly harness. They should all have continuity; otherwise, replace the harness.

Remove the top panel to access the control board if further continuity test is necessary or if the red/black wire of the wax motor harness has continuity with the all other red/black wires of the door lock and switch assembly harness.

Remove the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the cabinet then lift the panel off. The console can be removed from the cabinet to completely access the control board connections, particularly the door lock and switch assembly harness connections. Check the continuity of the red/black wires at the door lock and switch assembly to the red/black wire of the harness connected to connector J2 on the control board.

The problem is in the control board if the wax motor is good and the door lock and switch assembly wire harness has all the necessary continuity. The only viable solution, should that be the case, is the replacement of the control board.

How do you gain access to the Front Panel circut board? On a Jenn Air JDB8910AWW Dishwasher? If I want to check the soldering connections, I don't want to open up areas which would make more work for me....


the front panel control board is accessed by taking off the inside door panel that will release the control panel so you can get to the control board but do not try to solder connections on the board just replace the complete board

Oven stops after a few seconds


I like the information you give.
If the unit will work with the control Panel at a 45 degree angle it tells me you have a loose connection. The 45 degree angle puts enough pressure on the connection to keep it completed. With the Control Panel in it's normal position, the loose connection Heats and Opens the connection. After it cools connection is again made until it Heats up again. Remember Expansion, Contraction. I do not believe you have a Magnetron issue!! A Magnetron does not know if the Control Panel is at an angle.
Can you hear a slight "Click" when the unit shuts down? If so this is a relay opening. When you say you replaced the Control Board. Was this the Control Panel PC Board, or was it the Cook-Relay Control Board? A Door Switch not making solid contact can do this. Is your Door latching down solid? Check for loose connections, not open LOOSE.
