Question about Computers & Internet
When I push the select button to see voltages,etc. after a minute or so the LED light turns off? Is there anyway to have the LED panel display to stay on all the time, or is this normal operation?---Model GS-1285U
SOURCE: Always dispenses CRUSHED ice
try removing the ice bucket, and on the back wall is a hole approx 1.5 inches square that the brass bar attached to the rear of ice container inserts into,(you may have to put hte container back in partilaly to look under and watch where it slides into) inside thatcut-out is a plunger that slides up and down activating the crushed/cubed option.you can sick you finger in the hole you should seee a plastic hoop that would catch the brasss bar.Try pushing and pulling hte hoop up and down if it does not move freely, youll need to replace the solenoid assy. if it does, then pull allthe way to the lowest positon and make sure when replacing the ice container that the bar falls with in the hoop itself

On my unit, I had the same problem (child lock LED on, or flashing.The cancel process of pushing anything was not possible, as a bad/stuck switch prevented any input from the control panel buttons.
The underlying cause of the problem turned out to be a faulty switch associated with the "Light China" button. I determined this by removing the control panel from the door and using a digital multimeter with OHMS and DIODE settings, was able to check each individual push-button switch using the following table to check the 12 switches (applies to the KUDC25CHSS1 model).
There are 2 ribbon cables, it is the larger of the two cables you need to check. Pin 1 is noted on the ribbon. You can use 2 normal sized paper clips to insert into the ribbon cable and make your connections. (My Ohm meter has aligator clips on its leads which helps a lot...maybe another set of hands would help if you don't have these kind of leads).
-Using OHMS: the reading should be infinite (open circuit, so no reading/no connection inside the switch) when not pushing the button, otherwise you will receive a reading when you push the switch.
-Using DIODE/beep: Ensure polarity is followed in the table below. When connected, pushing the associated button will cause a beep to occur, otherwise there will be no beep and no reading.
+Positive Lead -Negative lead
Antibacterial Sw 13 3
Rinse Only Sw 13 2
Light China Sw 11 2
Normal Switch 13 4
Delay Switch 11 4
Energy Save Dry 13 5
Cancel 12 5
Start 11 5
Soak & Scrub 12 6
Super Scrub 11 6
Short Wash 12 4
Sani Rinse 11 3
All my switches checked out OK, except for the "Light China" switch. On the OHMS settings I was never able to measure an open circuit for that switch, which means the switch was always closed. or connected.
I noticed that "Light China" was pin 2 and "Rinse only" also used pin 2, which happen to be cycles I never use. With power turned off, I carefully removed some of the plastic surround of the matching connector on the Control Board right next to it's associated Pin 2 all the way to the bottom. Then I carefully bent over pin 2 as close to the connector base as possible. Making sure all the remaining pins were straight, I plugged on the control panel ribbon cables and all is well again.
Prior to trying this I was resolved that I needed to buy a new dishwasher because I wasn't going to pay over $350 for a new control panel. Instead, I eliminated 2 unused cycles at no cost, and maybe I can get some more use out of this dishwasher.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description, "clean light stays on" this is actually an error code as you may or may not know associated with the heating process. What typically happens is poor water circulation preventing the water from heating properly.
To resolve this, I'd start with the following...the wash pump area. You`ll need to follow these steps to clean it.
1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.
2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.
3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".
a ) lift to depress the rear tab, i.e.
b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.
4 ) Now you can remove the center nut...
Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out.
Below the filter you`ll find food debris, undissolved detergent etc, but also a cover with a single #10 torx head screw to remove and the cover will pull straight up and out. the arrows from left to right in the image indicate...
1) screw location
2) tab to pull up on
3) the latch you may need to twist to the left to remove the cover
Now you should see the chopper and screen assembly, it too can be clogged up pretty bad, clean it best you can...you don`t really want to remove this part.
If my explanation is not clear enough, here`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.
Once these actions have been performed you'll need to clear the error code. to do so is as follows. Press the following buttons in this sequence...
HEATED DRY - NORMAL, HEATED DRY - NORMAL, HEATED DRY - NORMAL
This diagnostic cycle may take approx. 15-20 minutes to complete. Let it proceed through to completion and you should be good to go...unless the heater itself is at fault or a wire has vibrated loose from the heater...those are steps to follow if OR when necessary.
Let me know how you make out, please keep me informed if you need further assistance or anything is unclear. Please take a moment to rate me assistance and a short testimony is appreciated as well.
Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Open the front panel by pushing on it. Pressing on the panel releases the lock and allows the front panel to pop open slightly. Pull the corner gently to open the panel completely.
Use a pointed object, such as the sharpened end of a pencil or the tip of a paper clip, to push the "System Reset" button.
Wait about one minute, or until the green LED light on the front panel display stops flashing.
Turn your television back on once the green LED light turns off.
this is procedure for most mitsubishi dlp.
