Question about Dishwashers
The F4E1 is a code that signifies a WASH MOTOR issue. Specifically, no Communication. This is usually caused by:
A loose connection in Wash Motor Circuit, Motor Communication Circuit and/or an open wash motor.
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
2. Check all connections in Wash/Rinse Circuit and Motor Communications Circuit. Fix/replace an open connection/part. Motor fuse on control open.
Using keypad press "Heated Dry", "Normal Wash", Heated Dry", Normal Wash, and the "cancel button" to reset.
Start a cycle and listen for 2 relay contact clicks at the start of interval to confirm both the pilot and motor relays are turning on.
These relays provide power to the motor, but the motor does not start until it receives a start command later in the cycle). If hear only 1 or zero clicks and wash motor does not come on later in service cycle, and there were no loose wire communication wire connection when checked above, then unplug dishwasher or disconnect power and replace control.
