    Same problem... Door Closed and Locked but the CL indication is flashing on the control panel. Second time it happens to me. the first time the unit was under warranty and local Dacor rep replaced the main board. A year and a month later same problem. Dacor refuses to cover the repeater... Any idea which component may failed?

The issue is the controller board seems not to be insulated and then the glue from the connector that holds the power to the board comes apart from the heat of the wash.  I removed the board, resoldered it (power cables are the black ones) and it seems to work.  Plus I added insurlation to the front of the door (simple .5" insulation from Lowes) and now my board works a lot better.  Thus far no more CL.

If your dishwasher won't start the problem could be the door latch or door latch switches. The door latch assembly is used to hold the door closed during the cycle to prevent water from leaking and it also incorporates the door latch switches that supply power to the dishwasher controls. If the door cannot close properly to activate the door latch switches or if the switches are defective then the dishwasher controls will not receive power and the dishwasher will not start. Inspect the latch assembly including the switches.
The door latch assembly is typically located at the top of the door, behind the inner door panel. To gain access you will have to remove the screws that secure the inner door panel and then separate the inner and outer door. The door latch assembly will normally have two switches that are wired in series as a safety feature. Verify that the door catch will activate the switches by manually inserting the catch into the latch assembly. If both switches are being mechanically activated then you should next check the switches for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before attempting this repair.

Hi

Error CL appears when the dishwasher control detects door switch is open or door is open. You'll have to open the door and check the continuity of the door switch. If the door seems to be closed then it is the control has detected an issue with the door latch. Check the door latch & seals to make sure door is closing fine. Unplug the dishwasher from power outlet and wait for 10-15 minutes. Restart the dishwasher and check if the error is still there. If error still appears then you'll need to repalce the door switch/door latch. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

Dishwasher won't run. Normal light and cancel light flashing cont


Hi,


The door latch pulls the door tightly closed to prevent water leakage around the door. It is also designed to prevent operation while the door is open. The door latch works in concert with the door switch to ensure that the door is tightly closed and latched.The door switch is a separate part from the door latch and is found inside the cabinet. The switch is off when the door is open. Depressing the switch closes the circuit and enables dishwasher operation. Closing the door does not depress the switch all the way. Only when the door is closed and latched, does the door fully depress the switch.

If the door latch is not properly aligned it may not pull the door tightly closed and the door switch will not be fully depressed. Unless the switch is fully depressed the dishwasher will not operate. It is a simple matter to determine whether the door latch is the problem. Simply open the door, close the latch and select a cycle and depress the switch. Note that if the test is successful, with the door open, the dishwasher will operate and water may spray out. Make sure to first remove all tools from inside the dishwasher. Do not reach inside the dishwasher during the test. Now, inspect the cabinet where the door makes contact with it and locate the door switch. It may have a protruding button or spike or more likely it is a hole with a piece of metal or plastic inside it. You must fully depress that switch. If the switch is recessed, then use a non-conductive object, such as a wooden pencil, to depress the switch.

Thank you !!

Dishwasher stops during cycle and full of dirty water


you are having a problem with your door latch.the unit may not be staying closed or the latch strike is not in position to engage the door switches.
check the metal bracket just where the door closes and try to bend it downward , closer to the door and see if this helps to keep it working.

When i close the door i hear it close but i have to put something up against it to keep it washing if i take it away it stop washing


Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.


Latch The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem. If the latch has worn out in a way that makes it impossible for you to close the door properly, you probably need to replace the latch.

CL Error Dacor Dishwashwer


I had this problem and it was driving me crazy! I finally figured out what it was, in my case. I thought that the door switch would be the problem, so I took the door cover off and jumpered out the switch. No luck. While I had it apart, I noticed that each time I bumped the main control board, I heard a short, and heard a relay close. I found that the main control board wasn't snapped all the way into its mount on the left side. Apparently, there is a contact on the back side of the board that only makes when the board is fully seated. Snapping the board firmly into place has fixed my problem.

Dacor dishwasher door won't latch


Don't know if this helps or not...might be obvious...if you open the door and look up where it latches...there is a philips screw you can loosen to adjust the latch forward or back.
