Baumatic BHD5 works then buttons start flashing and it beeps and stops working
The dishwasher stop after about 5 minutes, it flashes saying control error or something, it beeps and wont continue to do anything. Apparently i might need a new pcb/control circuit board but buying one direct from baumatic costs £200 and what if this isnt the actual problem? do you have any advice? thanks

CHECKING KEYPAD OPERATION
A rapidly blinking LED over one of the keys of the keypad (or sometimes a "dead" keypad/console)
To determine if the control or keypad is faulty, do the following test:
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
2. Open the dishwasher door.
3. Open console and disconnect the keypad ribbon connection from the control (at P1).
Make sure all other connections are made.
4. Put console back together. Do not close the dishwasher door.
5. Plug in dishwasher or reconnect power.
6. Wait 5 seconds.
7. Close dishwasher door.
8. Monitor the control's response:
If the control is OK (no longer sees shorts with the keypad unplugged),
it will respond by turning on a Drain Motor for 2 minutes.
Check and/or replace the keypad if the control responds OK.
If the control is not OK (still sees shorts with the keypad unplugged),
then the drain motor will NOT respond and will remain off.
If no response, replace the control.
I tilted mine backwards with it running and beeping and it stopped beeping shortly...It made a mess on the floor of course but I put it down and lights were still flashing but no more beeping. Thought I would try tipping it forward while it was running and the lights went off and the beeping never started again. Its working fine now??
I've not changed a control unit before, so I don't know how easy it is. I would suggest you get a fixed price engineer to come out and tell him in advance what the problem seems to be. Or call a Baumatic engineer and have the control unit sent by the spares department to your address in advance of the engineer's call out. Otherwise it will become around a month long wait and will require 2 visits. If you already have the part - then pehaps the repair won't be stretched over 2 visits?
