Question about Bosch Dishwasher Timer Control Unit 092190

1 Answer

I have the bosch SMU7056UC/14 dishwasher - it is about 14 years old so it does not have an electronic touch pad - it has control buttons that you have to push - the on/off - first button on the left - will not hold so it will not start. I assume the control panel is bad - how hard to replace yourself?

Easy to replace - IF you can find spares !
Most manufacturers declare their products obsolete after 10 years (some even earlier).
However, you may be able to fit a standard chassis mount ON/OFF toggle switch and solve the problem (assuming that only the ON/OFF switch is faulty).
Use a switch that has a plastic body and mounting shaft, to avoid safety problems.
Select a switch with a current rating equal to the stated rating on the machine's spec label (usually at the rear of the machine). If the rating is only stated in Watts, then simply divide Watts by the rated mains voltage to get the current.
If no lable can be found, then select a switch that can handle at least 10 amps if the rated mains voltage is 110 - 120Vac, or 5 amps if the rated mains voltage is 220 - 240 Vac.

    Does the little light come on above the button? If may not be the switch/ maybe a broken wire from the switch to the terminal block. You can check the switch itself for continuity with a multimeter...then (WITH THE POWER SHUT OFF AT THE BREAKER PANEL OF COURSE) check for continuity between the switch (Black wire) and the terminal block. These units are notorious for a broken wire where the door opens and closes.

Lights are blinking when trying to start frigidaire dishwasher

First, confirm that the display is working. If the display is still working, try pressing some of the touch-pad buttons. If some of the buttons respond correctly but others don't, it is likely that the touch-pad is at fault. (Some manufacturers sell the touch-pad separately from the control panel. Other manufacturers require that you purchase the touch-pad and control panel together. If you cannot replace the touch-pad individually, replace the touch-pad and control panel.)

My Kitchen Aid Dishwasher is 8 years old, The light that I push to start it, does not light up, and I cannot turn it on. All other lights are on

Looks like an electronic problem. Most likely the touch pad. But sometime you may be end up changing the both touch pad and main control board. Also sometime harness between the touch pad and main control board can be the culprit. If there is dirt build up harness then user rubber eraser to clean it out. It will help.

Dishwasher lights are all flashing

If you do have the Touch Control Electronic Pad, then you do have a problem, moisture related. You need to open the panel, use a Hairdryer to dry the panel properly and replace. This sorts many of these Touch Control Electronic Pad.
