Tips for replacing the drain pump in a Bosch dishwasher

Academy Fellow Kurtius expertly guides us in this repair kata:

I find removing the outer door panel is helpful...remove the 6 screws, 3 left,3 right on the inner door edges.
Next spot the galvanized strip above the sump access...it has a plastic wire channel attached to it and a screw holding it on either end. Remove the screws and have a helper hold it up out of your way, no need to detach the wire channel.
The only other thing in the way is a corrogated plastic hose slipped into a hole in the sump...simply pull it out and move it to the side.
This should give you enuff room to get at the small plastic release tab and twist the pump out of its position.
Hope this helps!

How to test the keypads on the touchpanel of a Whirlpool dishwasher

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dishwasher Repair 17 February 2012 · 1,806 views
whirlpool, dishwasher, touchpad and 2 more...
If you have a flashing light above one of the keypads on your Whirlpool dishwasher, the keypad may be shorted. This does not apply to the Clean Light blinking in a sequence of seven blinks, pause, seven blinks, etc.; more on that here and here.

The dishwasher's tech sheet is located behind the bottom kick panel. Remove the panel to retrieve the tech sheet-- it has a procedure for testing the key pads on the touchpanel.

But in case someone with sticky fingers done stole your'n, this awwta git it fer ya:

from the tech sheet:

PROBLEM: Won’t Run and LED Above Key(s) is Flashing Rapidly

Short circuit(s) in keypad or in control’s input lines that read the keys.


CHECKING KEYPAD OPERATION

A rapidly blinking LED over one of the keys of the keypad (or sometimes a “dead” keypad / console)

indicates one or more key switch lines are stuck or shorted on either the control or the keypad.

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.


If a keypad does turn out to be shorted, the fix is to replace the touchpanel ==> Touchpad and Control Panel

Tips for troubleshooting a Samsung dishwasher with an HE (heating element) error

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dishwasher Repair 23 January 2012 · 2,144 views

This problem could manifest as the dishwasher running nonstop and not entering the drying cycle. Academy Fellow john63 points us in the right direction:

Check the continuity of the HEATING ELEMENT with a test meter---if "open" replace the HEATING ELEMENT.

If "good"---it's very likely that the HEATER RELAY---located on the right side of the dishwasher at floor level---has failed.

During the DRY CYCLE---there should be 120 volts AC coming from the HEATER RELAY---to the element.

Most HEATING ELEMENT or HEATER RELAY failures occurred in homes that had a "Tankless/Instant Water Heater".

Other possibles are:

1) One of the DOOR SWITCHES FAILED
2) MAIN BOARD (very rare)

GE Top Control Dishwasher Recall and Installation Instructions for TCO Shield Kit

GE Top Control Dishwasher Recall
and Installation Instructions for
TCO Shield Kit WD35X10354X
2010_Top_Control_Dishwasher_Recall.pdf

Dear GE Customer Care Servicers,
On October 26, 2010, GE announced a Product Safety Recall on a limited number of GE Profile and GE Monogram branded dishwasher models.
This voluntary recall is the result of the determination that water condensation can drip onto the electronic control board during
normal wash operation, causing a short circuit and resulting in an overheated connector.

To eliminate this risk, we will install a thermal cut-off with fiber shield over the control board.
If the dishwasher appears to be non-repairable, follow your normal process and call the Technical Assist Group at (502)452-4700.

Coverage Period: No end date
No charge for labor
No charge for TCO shield kit

GE will provide a free repair to all consumers with units affected by the recall.
Consumers who wish to replace their dishwasher with a new model can use a GE rebate of $200 for the
purchase of a new GE Profile dishwasher or a GE rebate of $400 for purchase of a new GE Monogram dishwasher.
Details and forms are on our website www.geappliances.com/recall or at our retailers.
