GE Monogram ,"Dishwasher Blues"

3 posts in this topic

I'm repairing a GE dishwasher that have a preprogrammed circuit board. When I close the door and push the button to start the normal wash , or set any other wash for that matter, the only thing that happens is the circ pump sounds like it comes on and continues to run constantly but never fills. Nothing else happens. I then decided to check the voltage to the fill valve when I start the cycle to see if  I had voltage at the valve. I never got more than 20 volts. I then checked the continuity at the float switch , it was normal also. I could not find a wiring diagram anywhere around the machine so I suspect that the preprogrammed circuit board must be bad . what is your opinion on this topic. Thanks!!!! :dude:

Use the wiring diagram to locate the fill valve control voltage output wire to the control board. Measure the voltage there wrt a known good neutral. If you get junk voltage right outta the board, it's a bad board, slam dunk.

Be careful to do this test diligently: bad switches, such as float switches, are famous for showing continuity but passing junk voltage.

cant get that model to come up on sears website. cant remember if the monograms have a basin or not but if it does it probably has a flood switch which if tripped would prevent filling.
