Question about Viking VDB450 Dishwasher

1 Answer

First of all, I'm not 100% sure what make my dishwasher is, as the previous owner didn't leave the manual. I do know it's a Viking, however, and I know that it looks a lot like the icon next to the VDB450. Anyway, here's my problem: the dishwasher won't rinse correctly. It's not immediately evident to the eye, but soap bubbles rise in our water glasses when we fill them up with H20. Also, there's a VERY visible layer of soap scum on the bottom of the dishwasher. Any tips? Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi

The issue seems to be with the float switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills your dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with your dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use your voltmeter to test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If your switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Whirlpool Dishwasher power surge results in flashing clean button


I'm not sure what the sequence would be on your particular model as Whirlpool dishwashers can differ in operaiton. However, if you remove the lower kick panel under the dishwasher door, there should be a tech sheet either directly behind the panel, or tucked inside the door. The tech sheet will list all troubleshooting tips and any fault codes that the owner/operator's manual does not list. This is the SAME sheet the repairman will reference when they come to your home on a service call. Please let me know if you still require assistance. I hope this helps you.
