Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Hi there, we have an LG dishwasher that keeps blowing the trip on the main board.this happins after about 2/3 mins after turning it on. Have taken the sides off and found that there was a small amount of water in the bottom of the catch pan under the motors. Im thinking that it could be water spraying onto the motor but how do i test were from without getting a hell of a buzz from it if it is.

    OK ive tried it and cant see any leaks but still cuts out after about 4mins. Starts filling and washing then popped RCD again. Any help please

  • Sam Feb 16, 2014

    what is the model of the dishwasher. The motor capacitor might be leaky and shorting the RCD.

If the problem with your dishwasher is not fixed then consider replacing the capacitor on the wash motor. It could be shorting and cutting the circuit breaker. See this manual for location of parts.

SOURCE: Kenmore Dishwasher 665.1671590 Leaking water at fill funnel.

Step1
Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely. 
Step
2
If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary. 
Step
3
Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet. 
Step
4
Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement. 
Step
5
Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.

SOURCE: bosch dishwasher motor keeps running no water

Hola Lewis!

This is such an easy repair, you'll be shocked and surprised! The reason this is happening is that the computer or timer has detected a "flood" condition and has permanently energized the drain pump to clear the "flood".

What you'll need to fix it...
1.) Shop-Vac (for vacuuming water) with a crevice tool (like one of these)
2.) T20 Torx bit with a driver. Torx sizing here. (You can get a set at Home Depot or Lowes)

All you gotta do now is get down on the floor and remove the kick panel. Then remove the screws holding the water valve and lift it up out of its' plastic holding. Now your shop-vac w/ crevice tool can be used. Stick the crevice tool in there (about 10") and vacuum up all the water that's been trapped in the basin. (you may need a flashlight to see what's going on back in there...) After the water is gone, your DW will work fine.

Here's how it works... About 10" behind the inlet valve is a "float" made of styrofoam. When water gets into the basin, the float rises and eventually trips a "flood condition" switch. This switch shuts the unit down and will only allow the drain pump to operate. So what you want to do is get the water out of the basin.

There may be a reason for the basin flooding, though. Suds (caused by too much (or the wrong) detergent), an actual water leak from the valve, etc... So after you get the water out of there and the unit is working again, you may want to monitor it (like, only run it when someone is home) for a while just to make sure that a real flood does not occur.

Hope this helps.
SG

SOURCE: lg LDF6810ST dishwasher not cleaning top rack

Almost all of the problems mentioned above will be solved by having the owner buy a name brand detergent powder (like Electrosol or Cascade) and using a little less than you think you should.
For those who continue to have problems with poor cleaning, you need to remove the lower spray arm (pull straight up firmly, then out) and then remove the 9 screws that hold the filter in. Using a flashlight, inspect everywhere in the sump area (be careful of broken glass!) Remove all debris and especially look for something blocking the white check valve that is driven by the Vario motor to control the alternation between the upper sprayer arms and the lower arm. Reasemble and test.
If inside dishwasher is a mess with white mineral deposits, recommend you place a bowl filled with white vinegar on the rack of your empty DW. Start a quick cycle with no detergent added.
Check out how clean it is when you are done!
If you have problems after this, please post back what you are seeing.
Good Luck!

No lights, won't run. Nothing. Worked fine yesterday.


Hello. Critical question--is the dishwasher on that GFCI circuit!? If so, (A) you might have voided any warranty and (B) you should NEVER have appliances with digital boards on a GFCI circuit. Why? Because the method GFCI breakers and outlets use to keep us safe(how they reference current to ground) can blow out the electronic control boards plugged in to the circuit they monitor. I am ALWAYS telling my customers to immediately switch out an outlet or breaker which is protecting a washer, dishwasher, or microwave. I know that electrical codes often mandate that a GFCI device be within 3 feet of a water source but the design engineers didn't think about that one...It often is buried in the users manual to NOT connect the device to a GFCI.
Now, after all that, I need the model number of your unit to help you most accurately--some dishwashers have a main fuse on or near the main control board. If this fuse opens, voila! The unit is D-E-A-D until you replace the fuse. However, if there isn't a fuse, you've got a blown main board(and possibly user control panel, too). Power slams like the one you experienced are notorious for damaging control boards. That's why power outages are so destructive--they either blow out boards immediately or cause them to fail in about 3-4 weeks afterwards due to the damaged chips on the board starting to fail from over-current/voltage. I hope I helped you!

LG Dishwasher LD-1420T1 Tripping the main Power Board


Looks like the pump motor is drawing lot of current and tripping the circuit breaker. Need to check if there is any water inside it. Or simply the capacitor is leaky and causes motor to draw current.

See this part.

Hi I have an ADG 7540 dishwasher Yesterday, our kitchen sink was blocked, so the Mrs poured some sink unbloker into the sink and left it for 2 hours to soak through At somepoint - not sure if it was...


Hi Kris,

It certainly sounds like you have the diagnosis about right. Clearly there are still internal components that are wet and they are causing various short circuits that will cause trips and strange behaviour.One of a couple of things will have happened here:

Either the machine will dry out and return to normal operation (you would be surprised at what a soaking electrical equipment can take and still work once dried out) or the soaking has blown a controller board and the machine will need diagnosis and repair.

My first step would be to pull the machine out and leave it in a warm and well ventilated place for about a week (A conservatory is a great place for drying if you have one). After a week, try the machine and you will quickly learn if it has dried out and survived or not. If it is still dead, then call for a repairer.

A couple of things to note here:
Firstly: Be patient and wait the whole week. Every time you turn the machine on and it fails because a component is still wet, you run the risk of killing a component that had managed to survive the initial problem.
Secondly: If the machine is worth the repair, it is probably best to call out someone qualified. This kind of problem is a DIY nightmare and you can find yourself buying components that dont fix the problem, or worse, that you blow up, because the problem was somewhere else and all you did was put a new component in place for the fault to destroy. Better to call out someone who knows what they are doing, has test equipment and who will blow up their own components that they paid ffor rather than yours!

Hotpoint aquarius fdw60 tripping problem


I would agree with you. Everything you say here certainly points to a faulty heating element. The original is fitted with two factory fitted clips so you may need to go to your local garage and get two jubilee clips as they don't usually come with the new element.

Error code OE; dishwasher stops with error message 2 min into cycle, drainage seems OK, water doesn't appear to pump into machine - any advice?


Hi,
The most common cause of an OE error code on a modern LG dishwasher is:
1. Blocked drain hose
2. Obstruction in the sump area (beneath the filter, which needs to be removed to check for onstruction)
3. Failing drain motor. 
else you need to REPLACE THE PCB POWER CONTROL BOARD
Good Luck!!!

A faulty heater in both a washing machine and dishwasher will trip swithes because they both cause an earth........the chances are you heater needs replacing......the reason its tripping after a short period is probably beacause the cycle doesnt start heating the water until after approx 15-20 mins depending on the cycle chosen
