Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator
I have reset, plugged and unplugged, checked the circuit breaker, all OK. I want to override this darn blinking light! Washer ran fine this morning. There is no load in the washing machine. I haven't the foggiest idea what to do, it is a holiday weekend, and I have laundry to do! And it is 24F degrees with flurries predicted! HELP!
Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
With electronic controlled appliances today and in this case your dishwasher. The printed circuit board (PCB) transformers are very susceptible to power surges. The windings are just large enough for the normal operational voltages. Anything above or below that range causes the windings to fail rapidly. When they fail you do not get the 5V or 3.3 V for the LEDs ' and IC chips or the 12V for the controlling the relays for normal operation.
I don't see a model number listed for your dishwasher so I can not provide the replacement part information at this time.
Before I went into the parts changing mode I would first go back and reset every breaker in the house by:
1. Pushing each breaker with conviction to the OFF position. This completely resets the breaker.
2. As you turn each of the breaker ON push hard on the face of the breaker near the center of the main panel to ensure it remains connected / engaged to the main power buss bar.
Then go back and check the dishwasher for signs of life. If it works great! If not.... I will be watching for model number information if you need help with the dishwasher control parts information.
Just a side note... you may want to check your home owners insurance coverage (if your a home owner) to see if it covers repair of equipment other than the one that caused the original problem.
Thanks for using FixYa.
