SOURCE: MDBH945AWW maytag dishwasher panel lights will not

These control boards do not have fuses on them. I opened mine up when the front panel touch pad stopped working and the LED indicators were anemic. This is a sign of the ribbon cable connections have oxidized. The ribbon cable connects the touch pad to the control board.
Others have written up nice solutions on similar Maytag diswashers with the touch pad.

The previous expert shows that you can diagnose this by using a 10k resistor and connecting pin 6 and 10 on the ribbon cable connector and it will start the dishwasher (you have to trip the door handle and carefully do this with the power on). This proves that the control board is fine and ribbon cable connections are the problem. Don't forget to quickly trip the door latch once the dishwasher starts.

My solution was to purchase a contact cleaner called Deoxit. You can order from RadioShack.com or get at Frys. Spray Deoxit on both the ribbon cable end (removed) and into the connector on the control board. Deoxit removed the oxide on the connectors. The twin pack Deoxit spray comes with a solution that helps prevent corrosion. I am 1 day into the successful repair of this model Maytag dishwasher.

Previous people have suggested heat and steam get into the control board and oxidize this connector. I notice on the top right where the control board sits, there is a gap to allow steam to get into the door/control board area. I used bathroom caulk to seal both sides of the door to hopefully prevent further corrosion.

Bosch diswasher,model Sms68m02AU trips circuit breaker


rcd units trip from the milliamps that are in a short
it trips the rcd to prevent electrocution and acts in nano seconds besides being a circuit breaker for excessive current
the trip can be from moisture allowing a current leakage to ground or some other simple operation
I suggest that you get in a qualified electrician / bosch service technician to find the reason for the problem rcd

Bosch Classixx 1000rpm. Trips out RCD each time turned on. Am able to use other appliances in same power point. Only 3-4 years old


If the RCD is tripping then the appliance has an earth leakage fault. You should remove the plug from the power point and not use it until you get it repaired. This is a potentially dangerous fault, and the RCD is telling you it is faulty.

Dishwasher is tripping RCD, can it be repaired?


not necessary-- yet-- to buy a new unit
tripping the rcd is an indication of earth leakage which could amount to water in the wall plug across pins, moisture across the power board, water in the motor, faulty heater element
what you need is an accredited electrician to run tests on the system to find the reason for the earth leakage that is tripping the rcd
the rcd works from microvolts and operates in nano seconds to prevent electrocution of the operator
testing before buying may save heaps of cash

Pumps water in don't wash and pumps out again


Not sure whether a schematic will help unless you have some understanding of the location of the components. It would help if you are able to clarify what you mean by pumping in. Usually you should hear the water inlet valve turn on to let water in. Then the wash motor should run to churn the water around and then the drain pump should drain the water out. What is happening is the dishwasher is leaking water as soon as it fills. This causes the flood switch to turn on and that triggers the drain pump to empty the water. Usually Bosch dishwasher have an inline water leakage detector. Check under the sink where water inlet tap is located. There is a device connected through which the water get in. The hose is detecting leakage. Need actual model number of the dishwasher to investigate.

Dishwasher only wants to drain


With my Bosch Evolution 500 series, this problem was caused by water in the washer's sub pan tripping the leak detector float switch. The water came from a hose leaking at the connection to the sump body (white plastic "bowl" in center of dishwasher). Remove water (wet/dry shop vac) and should work. Obviously, the leak must be fixed. Probably oring on hose that needs replacement. Remember to lubricate oring with silicone grease.

Hello

Welcome to Fixya.

Based on your post,"...Even when the dishwasher is off I cannot reset the breaker unless I kind of move the machine around a bit. Sometimes it pops the breaker just closing the door..."

These are the most common reason for these Bosch dishwashers not having power.


#1

I would start by first shutting off the breaker. Then removing the kick plate ( access panel at the bottom ) and checking the wiring at the junction box for the dishwasher 120vac supply line.

Remove the murret's and visually inspect the wire for "resistance burn" and strip the wires back and install new fastener's if necessary to repair.

i.e.

60f6a31.jpg

This is actually quite common to find a wire connector come loose due to improper fastening and once the unit is in use for a while the connections heat & cool, become loose from normal operating vibrations and burn up from all the added heat caused by "resistance".

#2


A wire severed inside the door panel, hence the breaker trips by just moving the door in an open/close motion.

Check thoroughly in this location...

The end result is tripping the breaker and no power to the controls.

Check it out and post back what you find. Thanks for visiting "fixya" and please take a moment to rate the solution/suggestion provided here for you.

Good luck.

Macmarkus :)

My Whirlpool ADG 7550 Dishwasher trips out all my electrical sockets as soon as its plugged in. It failed whilst in mid wash. Any advice?


It is possible there is a short in the electric system in the dishwasher. There are two possibilities

1. there is a leak to the earth due to some water leakage and this causes the earth relay to trip.
2. the dishwasher motor coil or capacitor is shorted and drops the circuit breaker.


If it is related to 1, then best to take the dishwasher out from the cabinet and check with multimeter if power plug Live is showing short with Earth connection. You will have to find source of the water leak onto the power board.

If it is related to 2, then isolate the motor capacitor and try again. But 2 is unlikely if the breaker trips even if the dishwasher is not turned on.


Please post a comment if you find anything.

I assume you are refering to the earth leakage circuit breaker. This trips when a earth leak fault has occured. The normal cause for this could be
A) Water leaking via a pipe at the bottom comming in contact with one of the electric motors at the base of the washer.
B) A heating element has gone faulty with a electrical leak to earth.
You need to test this with a multimeter on the OHMS scale and rectify any short to earth that the meter would indicate.

My aquairius hotpoint washer dryer wd62 keeps tripping electric why


Remove top cover, and unplug motor, try it, and if it does not trip, then motor is causing prob.
If it still trips, then heater is probably causing problem.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.
