How to test the touchpad in a Whirlpool dishwasher

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dishwasher Repair 22 June 2011 · 2,212 views

PROBLEM: WON’T RUN AND LED ABOVE KEY(S) IS BLINKING
Stuck key(s) or shorted circuit(s) in keypad.

Checking keyswitch contacts:
■ Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
■ Remove connector P1 from the control board.
Using the table below, measure the resistance across the switch when the key is pressed.
NOTE: The meter must be connected with the proper polarity.

If using an ANALOG readout meter:
The resistance reading should go from infinity (open circuit) down to a readable ohm level.
The level may be different depending on your meter, since there is a diode in the circuit.

If using a DIGITAL readout meter:
The resistance reading should go from infinity down to a readable ohm level.
The level may be different depending on your meter, since there is a diode in the circuit.
If available, you could use the “Diode Test” function of a digital meter, which will give a voltage of about 1.2 VDC during the test.
➔If any switches fail this test, replace the console panel/keypad assembly.
➔If all switches test OK, replace the machine control board
