Power to Front Control Panel

After replacing both circuit board and door switch I still do not get any response (power) indication on touch panel.

    Events leading up to zero response or no power indication on touch panel was incomplete cycles on intermittant basis (not often - two or three times over previous month). I definitely have power coming to unit as measurable by the appropriate AC voltage at the door micro switches. Intend to return new board and have the old board tested against the remote possiblility of new board being being bad. If the boards are good is it possible the touch panel set up is faulty?

KUDE60HXSS-DW is getting power but will not work-no lights/beep or response to cycle touch panel. Trying to locate fuse with no success


There is what is called the "triac-load fuse" on the main board, but it is not replaceable... I would expose the main control and look at the back of the circuit board for burns...

Kitchenaid dishwasher kuds30ixssa has pump running but have no lights on control panel with door closed.


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!

Problems could be related to defective control board or control panel as it is very common issue with these new dryers with to much electronics and made to fail parts

Whirlpool electric range E1 -F2- error code on display


2_10_2013_1_08_28_am.jpg

Taking a Quick Look

The E1 F2 error message indicates the control board thinks the touch panel has been unplugged from the board or it cannot read the switches. After getting access to the panel, you can see if it is indeed still connected to the control board, but when touching buttons on the panel, but if you notice some of them would beep while others do not respond at all, this was an indication that one of the switch matrix lines that run through the ribbon cable is no longer a complete circuit.

How it Works
The panels on these ovens utilize a switching matrix to constantly monitor all the buttons for a key press. By using a matrix for switch input, many buttons can be read by the processor using very few wires. The unfortunate side of a switch matrix is if any one wire becomes damaged, an entire row of switches on the matrix will no longer be usable since they cannot be seen by the control board. Here is the control board to order.

Oven door wont unlock/open


Hi,

E1 and F1 error code indicates a faulty ERC board. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing. Gain access inside the control panel.Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.Turn the power back on. Wait for an hour to see if the code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound). If code comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

Thank you !!

Flashing on oven F54 shut off oven at circit


HI. This code is an indication of a shorted upper door latch circuit. This could have be caused by a malfunctioning relay board.

The necessary actions are to gain access to the upper door latch assembly, and test the circuit with a meter. Use the procedure below.

Before repairs or further testing can begin you must disconnect the electricity at the fuse panel, at the circuit breaker panel, or by pulling the plug. Make sure the power is off before proceeding. Set the latch to the "clean" position and test for circuit continuity at the terminals of the switch with your VOM's ohmmeter function. If there is no continuity, the switch is faulty. Use caution when testing.

NOTE_ If the upper door latch switch passes the test, simply replace the relay board.

You have a faulty keypad. You could probably special order this part from a local appliance parts supply store for 50-60$ or purchase a new microwave.

Power to the outlet, but apparently no power at the touch pad - it is non responsive with no indicator lights on.


1. No power to the washer
Make sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Lid switch
The washing machine may not function if the lid switch is defective. The switch is usually located near the door. Replace if found defective.

If all the above checks out OK, replace the touch pad.
