    I apologize for coming back this late to acknowledge and thank you for your kind help. I have decided to live with the issue of no power light as I'm somewhat apprehensive about ending up with a leaking door if I don't put things back on right after fixing the bulb problem. Except for this power light glitch the unit works perfectly well. So for now I'll go with the wisdom of the old adage 'If it ain't broke don't fix it'. Thanks again and my best wishes to you.

Hi Agean, or anybody else with the same problem:

I have justfixed my problem: Take off ALL outside (visible) screws , back and front indoor liner.
Then take of the "hood" of the washer (white cover).

This gives you access to the electronic parts. There are 6 screw from the inside that you need to take out. Once this done, you can lift off the outside electronic part cover.

This gives you access to the screws with whom the Power button mechanics are fixed. Unscrew, and you can replace the Power button mechanics (Piezo-electronics, I think).

Hope this helped, it helped with my DDW399W.

Open the door and after you've disconnected the power supply ,remove all of the screws that hold the inside door liner to your door.They are usually T-15 or T-20 heads. This will give you access you ask about. Please Rate This !

I have a Kenmore elite dishwasher. The Pots and Pans red light is flashing and the Heated Dry light is solid red. Nothing I do will change that. I've tried pushing any combination of buttons and ...


Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Water is full and won't shut off dnby ddw399w countertop dishwasher


Hi, There is a water level switch in the d/w. located in front corner. You can move it up and down while listening for a clicking noise. Sometimes soap will gum them up so they don't move. when it is overflowing, will the water shut off if you turn the machine off or do you need to turn the water off at the faucet?
Please let me know so that I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Danby counter top dishwasher power switch problem


In regards to the problem with the power switch , I was able to get the 800 number from the store that we bought it at. Called the number-got right through-and they emailed me a COMPLETE breakdown and parts manual for my specific machine.

And I was able to order the part from them right over the phone and it was shipped out immediately. Very pleased with the service. Any one needs the parts breakdown I can email it to them.

Good luck-

DDW399W Danby Power button won't stay in place...washer powers down


I know your post is a bit old. I solved this by opening the outer shell and removing all screws attaching the control panel. The power switch needs to be replaced. I looked everywhere (including radio shack and lowes) but sears parts department is the best!

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=DDW399W&productCategoryId=0130000&brandId=3055&modelName=DISHWASHER&diagramPageId=00004&componentDescription=CONTROL%20PANEL&documentId=50031886&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

This should be the link of a diagram and info on the parts. They have just about every screw and bolt you need to repair you Danby. Also they have diagrams to show how it is all put together!

Good Luck!
