Fisher and Paykel Dishwasher child of satan
Posted 29 July 2005 - 04:19 PM
my dishwasher always seems to be operating.... once the cycle is completed it continues to humm as if the water pump is still going, however the display is turned off and there are no other signs the machine is on. The behavior continues whether or not the dor is opened or closed. the machine will also not stop mid cycle when the door is opened, leading me to believe my door switch is broken. (any one know where this is located on the machine??) however the most confusing fact is the pump operating when the machine is off!! any help would be much appriciated.... :D

A model number will help and can you also tell us if the machine is beeping as it runs on after the cycle. It is possible it is in the flood mode which over rides the door switch and leaves the drain pump running.

That being the case it sounds like you have a faulty control board. Apart from the heating element everything on these dishwashers is switched on the neutral. Check for any broken wires from the motor to the circut board. If there is and it is grounding to earth it will make the motor run as long as there is power to the dishwasher. Apart from that it has to be the controller at fault.
NZ/AUSTRALIA part number for the controller is 521793P.
