SOURCE: I have a Kitchenaid Dishwasher about 5 years old.

Removed power line from panel board # 11 as seen in appliance parts pros and shocked the board. It came to life and completed a cycle nominally. Then it died again. Tried to shock it again and sometimes it works but most times it doesn/t. Similar posts indicate a transistor failure in the board assembly. The board is easy to replace and costs about 90$. I'm replacing mine. Turn off power. Remove #15 torx screws (6) from the upper cover and lean panel forward. Remove board power . Diagram where connectors go back. Board is held in with 6 clips. Gently push clips open on one side and tilt board to remove board and ribbon cable. Reverse installation.

Connectingit hooking it up


The exact list of parts for a dishwasher hook-up would depend on the existing plumbing and electrical . There are three hook-ups needed; a hot water feed, typically from under the sink. A Tee is installed on the hot water line with a valve, and the hot water line to the dishwasher is connected to the valve. A drain line from the dishwasher is installed under the sink. It connects to the sink drain. The Electrical connection can be made using the appropriate electrical cord.
There are specific guidelines and considerations on how to connect the drain line under the sink, and what is required for the electrical hook-up. If you do a search on "how to install a dishwasher" you will be able to find extensive information.

Hi,
Probably because it is hooked up wrong...

The water feeding it should be hot water... meaning it should be hooked into you hot water piping, not the cold water...

The dishwasher will keep hot water hot but it is not powerful enough to heat the cold water up...

Dishwasher not filling with water. It is not the float. GE PDW 8480 Dishwasher


It could be the fill valve or that the power is not getting to the fill valve. Pull the bottom panel and find where the water line hooks up to the valve. There should be an electrical connector on the valve. First, listen when the dishwasher is at the cycle where it should be calling for water, to see if youhear a click of the valve opening or water running in. If not, and you have a volt meter, pull the electircal connector and check for AC voltage across it when the dishwasher is off - it should be 0, and when the dishwasher normally would fill - it should be something above 0 - it might even be 110v. If the voltage is ok, but the valve is not working, you need to replace the vavle. If the voltage stays 0, then something is wrong in the timer/control circuitry.

Not draining


Are you sure your drain system is not clogged or restricting water flow ? When you say youtook off the hose off under the sink and it seemed to be lots of water running on the rise cycle .. that suggests that you may have a restriction after the drain hose in your house drain system. ...

Some other considerations..

To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug this appliance from the power supply before attempting any maintenance.
  • Some water, usually one to two cups, remaining in the bottom of the tub is normal. However, if water is covering the bottom of the tub, the dishwasher is not draining properly.

  • Check for paper or large objects covering or blocking the sump area in the rear of the tub.

  • Make sure that the right type and amount of detergent is used: Using the wrong type or too much detergent can cause sudsing that can prevent the dishwasher from draining. Only detergent specifically designed for automatic dishwashers such as Electrasol®, Cascade® or Cascade Complete® should be used
Hope this helps you...

Dishwasher problem


If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:
1. Water-heating cycle
2. Timer

Water-heating cycle
Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time. 


On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too. 

Timer
Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.
