Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a GE Dishwasher model GSD4430X72WW.

The control panel keeps flashing ''power failure'' even though the power to the unit is on, the breaker is good, etc. If I open the door, close the door and reset the dishwasher handle, the message will clear itself for a random (minutes to days) amount of time, then start flashing again. It often starts flashing in the middle of a cycle and we have to start all over again.

Can I fix this, or do I need to buy a whole new control panel?

Hi, the surge has fried the logic sector of the control. it will work upon reset until the logic chip is commanded to initiate a wash. thsi is when the fault will kick in. I recommend replacing the control. this is the best action.

No power appears to be coming in....no connection when door is closed; no lights come on on any of the cycle indicators...deader than a doornail@l


Hello. I need the make/model number to help you most accurately. From the symptom you describe, there might be a main fuse located on or near the main control board which has opened, killing power to the unit. Clues: totally dead--no lights--an open door will not affect indicator lights, the unit won't do anything though--safety(nothing will happen until the door is closed) Have you had a power outage recently? Usually 3-4 weeks after an outage, the damaged chips on the boards start to fail. This can be evidenced by blown control panels, blown main boards, etc. Make sure 120 volts *is* getting to the dishwasher--check the power connections below(be careful). If the breaker has tripped, reset it and see if the unit runs. Troubleshooting starts from the outside and proceeds inward, eliminating the obvious and moving to ever more complex problems until the culprit is found. Definitely supply me with that model number so I can see what I'm dealing with and guide you correctly. Thanks!

Door ajar keeps flashing evan though the door is close


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand the door ajar light keeps flashing even though the door is closed on your Frigidaire freezer, model# FFU17K1CW. Please try resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. If further troubleshooting is needed, please leave the model number of your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

MY CONTROL PANEL DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. THE NIGHT LIGHT IS ALSO NOT WORKING. THE SERIAL NO. IS 900170B THANK YOU, MYRTA JACOBO EMAIL: MYRTA JACOBO@HOTMAIL.COM CELLULAR NUMBER 786-285-4262


Sorry to read about your problem.
It seems your have a general failure in the power control or switch failure on the unit.

  1. No power to outlet (blown fuse or tripped breaker or GFCI).
  2. Blown main fuse - likely due to other problems.
  3. Open thermal protector or thermal fuse.
  4. Defective controller or its power supply.
  5. Clock needs to be set before other functions will operate (some models).
Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair.

Hi! My Bosch began by tripping the breaker during the cycle (several times if I could get it to reset) and now will not start at all. Even when the dishwasher is off I cannot reset the breaker unless I...


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 :)

Gurgles with no water coming in; keeps trying to run with door open.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

When the door is opened do the lights all flash, or are the flashing regardless if door is open or closed ?

Based on your description I`d suspect the unit has sensed an overfill problem...the flashing "LED`s" is how the Asko indicate this scenario.

The gurgling is simply due to the drain pump being on continuously.Though you say the machine is empty, the overfill basin may be full of water.

**Turn off the power to the unit via the house breaker before attempting any repairs or service**

If you remove the toe panel/kick plate below the door, check to see if the basin is full of water or has any sign of water being present. If left several days it will typically evaporate and appear to be normal again...until it overfills again.

There are other factors which could cause this of course, including a faulty pressure switch, but we can go down that path once you inspect the overfill basin for water.

Good luck.

What does it mean when lights on control panel keep flashing and ice dispenser flap keeps opening and closing?


Ours started the same thing today. Called the 800- Maytag service number. They said it is a "known quality issue" with the controller and scheduled maintenace call. If gone unfixed, the controller will probably eventually fail and the frig will quit working all together. From what the lady said, this will be a free fix even though it's passed the warranty period.<!-- from fixya rte -->

I have no power to the control panel


Check the door switch, repeatedly open and close the door a few times,check for control power at the panel, push in on the door with a little more force than normal to see if that will trigger the door micro switch and restore power to the control panel. These are just quick, simple checks that may help. The no control power symptom can be related to many different component or module failures. Don't forget to check the obvious stuff like if your dishwasher plugs into a power receptacle under the sink make sure that it is! Check the circuit breaker in your house electrical panel also. Good luck !

I have a Whirlpool stove (model# RF385PXE)and I tried to start the self clean oven cycle the letters "door" appeared along with "E1" and "F5". The door is closed all the way. I even tried pushing it closed...


HI. This code is an indicating that the Self clean latch will not lock. Lock mechanism failure. follow the procedure below to address further.

1. If door latched:

A. Disconnect power from unit.
B. Check wires and connectors from control to door switch, then from door switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C.
C. Replace door switch.
D. Re-apply power.
E. Press and hold any key down for 1 minute to clear F5 failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.

2. If door not latched:

A. Disconnect power from unit.
B. Check wires and connectors from control to latch switch, then from latch switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C.
C. Repeat steps A and B for door switch.

3. Measure door switch (door open = switch open small low voltage terminals). Replace switch if defective.
4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open, CAUTION - oven light contacts are closed). Replace switch if defective.
5. If corrections are made in any step, reconnect power to control. Press and hold any key for 1 minute to clear R failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
6. If failure remains, disconnect power and replace control.
