    When I returned I checked electrical connections and cleaned out drain screen. I pushed start button and initially got PF message. Pushed start again and dishwasher has been running fine for the last week.

To check this you would take off the lower kick panel and go down the bottom of the machine where the power wire plugs into your machine and first assure that power is going to the machine. if you do have power going to the machine yet the touchpad has no power going to it from the control to the touch pad on some units the control is built in with the touchpad then you would replace the control this is the part number for the touch pad 154639206 and here is a schematic of how the control is removed as well click this link http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fR0803230-00001.png and here is also the schematic for your entire machine as well http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Model-PLD4555RFC2/1428/0130000?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=PLD4555RFC2 i would also suggest to use www.marcone.com under contact us they have a 1800 number and they are much cheaper then sears and other parts suppliers when it comes to prices on repair parts if you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks for using Fixya

Thermal Fuse

If the dishwasher won't start the thermal fuse might have blown. The thermal fuse helps to prevent damage to the dishwasher by turning off power so that it doesn't overheat. Once blown, the thermal fuse will have to be replaced for the dishwasher to work. The thermal fuse is usually located in the control panel on the control board or mounted to the bottom of the tank behind the lower panel. The thermal fuse can be checked for continuity.

Door Switch

The door switch, or switches, are sometimes called interlock switches. The door switch prevents the dishwasher from running while the door is open. If the dishwasher won't start, the switch or switches might be defective. To access the door switches, remove the control panel or inside door panel - depending on the model. They can be tested for continuity.

The main control board provides power to nearly every component of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher won't start the main control board might be defective. You should first check for more common parts. Many times control boards are replaced unnecessarily because the problem was not diagnosed properly.

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced. On some models the touchpad and control panel are sold together and will need to be replaced at the same time.

Most Whirlpool manufactured dishwashers have a thermal fuse, located inside the operator console. When tripped, the dishwasher will not run. A power outage can cause the thermal fuse to trip. It cannot be reset and has to be replaced, if bad. Please post back with your COMPLETE MODEL NUMBER (located around the door opening) so I can determine the configuration of your dishwasher and explain how to access any potential fuses. -->

Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher


check and see if you are getting ac 110 volts to your water vave when trying to start the unit. if no power check your breakers and /or the incoming power to your dishwasher if they are ok and show 110 voltage coming to the unit then you probably have a control board or touchpad problem which would need a little more detailed check out.
If you do have ac 110 to your water valve then you may just have a bad water valve. Because the washer has to fill first. Hope that helps!!

Error flashing and won't reset.


hi there,

PF stands for power failure. the first you should do is check your house breaker and make sure that you did not trip the fuse.

Does anything run? Can you hear the motor running? If not, you have no power coming into the machine. In this case it's the main control board that needs to be replaced.

If the motor hums, it means you have power to the d/w, in that case you need to replace the touchpad.

thanks

Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher Model GU2400XTP


There should be a thermal fuse located inside the console on the control board. Most dishwashers have them mounted this way. It's a white square plastic piece, or silver component with two wires connected to it. If the thermal fuse is bad it will give the same symptoms you are describing. To check, you need to turn off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher and remove the screws holding the console in place. This should be the four or five screws at the top of the door (with the door open). Carefully lift the console off the door (support the wires) and flip it over so you can see the control board. The thermal fuse should be mounted somewhere on the control board. The fuse will read a SHORT if good, an OPEN if bad. The fuse is not resettable (meaning you can't reuse it) and must be replaced. If you need further assistance let me know. I hope this helps you. PS There should be a tech sheet located inside the lower kick panel under the door. This includes all the schematics and troubleshooting tips. You may use this as a reference too.
