Question about Danby DDW496W Free-Standing Dishwasher
Hi: this dishwasher isn't a year old and it was just coming to the end of the cycle when it stopped working. I opened the door and saw there was still water in the bottom, so it had stopped before draining.
I fiddled with the sprayer to make sure it wasn't stuck or had something jammed in it, shut the door again, and for a brief second the lights were on but shut off again. An electrician checked the outlet and the actual dishwasher and electricity is live.
Could it be anything to do with the unfortunate crack on the outside of the door (it hit our tap and eventually got rather large, but the machine still functioned for months, only emitting a slight squeaking, I assume from a possible steam leak) - would this have had anthing to do with the machine dying mid-cycle?
I just wanted to check if I could check for anything before trying to find someone to repair it. Would appreciate any ideas you might have...
The problem is probably in the cycle switch/timer assembly. It probably burnt/shorted some contacts. This switch is of pretty intricate design, a bunch of wires run in and out of it and the turning action of the switch/timer opens and closes different contacts for pumps, heater, detergent door, etc... at different times in the cycle
