Question about Dishwashers
If the machine fills and heats up the water, but does not proceed any further in cycling , that means that the timer board did not detect that the correct temperature has been reached.
The machine keeps heating or filling warm water, and the cycle does not advance.
When this happens it usually means that the thermostat is faulty.
The thermostat can be tested by a technician reading Ohms at its contacts and jumping or opening its contacts.
The thermostat must read zero or very low impedance at room, and it will cut off reading no continuity when the limit temperature is reached.
If the machine keeps cycling , then the thermostat is not opening, or it is not reading temperature because defective.
