Check the appliance repair websites such as AppliancePartsPros.com or other such sites--there are many. Type in your model number(usually found on a sticker near the front edge on the left or right side of the tub after opening the door). They will have exploded parts diagrams and designations for the parts locations, plus part numbers/prices. Also, any good appliance supply outfit will have that information, just make sure to have your complete model number and brand.
If the control module has a short circuit, it will not advance to the next stage. Replacing is not always the answer unless you have done a few continuity tests to locate the exact source of the problem. Lots of folks simply guess and end up spending good money and still remaining with the same problem. Without tests, it is a guessing game, so my advise is to call a pro to your home if the washer is of value to you. Consider the parts and labor cost also. It may be worth investing a new unit.
Ok the lights flash all continually because the control board is defective (as opposed to another component) the part number for the control board is 8564546 it could be purchased from your local appliance parts store or online at; searspartsdirect.com apdepot.com repairclinic.com apwagner.com partselect.com
To replace the control board,open the door and remove the T10 torx headed screws and seperate the inner/outer door,remove the cover from control board ,remove old board with the wires attached...install new board and install wires on new board the plugs are keyed and will only fit on the correct terminals, a tip is to remove on and install it on new board so you doing only 1 plug at a time and its easy to tell where it goes since its the exact same place it just off of old board.
BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS TURNOFF POWER TO THE DISHWASHER AT THE CURCUIT BREAKER
Ironically, I just had to go through this ordeal myself. You would think they would include all the parts necessary to install these appliances, but they don't.
The fitting is a 90 degree elbow with 3/4 inch hose fitting to 3/8 inch compression fitting. The part number is W10273460. You can call Whirlpool at 1-800-442-9991, or you can purchase online at any of the following websites:
You can also go to your nearest hardware store plumbing section and purchase a universal dishwasher kit. The newer kits have the elbow included. If you aren't sure, make sure you ask a sales attendant. A universal kit costs about $15. The cost for the part listed above averages about $10.
The washer was probably leaking when the seal was put on. Not enough time to dry. You will have to let machine completely dry, clean the area that the seal goes to, and purchase a silcone sealent to put inside this seal. If possible, use clamps to hold the seal. Let dry couple days. day and a half.
the person who originally sold this was happy to get rid of it!! you dont want to buy this unit used. even when it was new it wasnt a very good unit. save your money and go buy a new whirlpool d/w. you will have much better luck with it cleaning and the quietness level. dont waste your money on a gibson. it was made by the frigidaire company and they are not good units. doesnt matter how little you pay, you wont get your moneys worth out of it.
