Hai!

Dishwasher mojo no gojo. Kentai fixawaza? Wana replace da controlo boarda mashinta. Howa doita?

Desu!

Translation:

I had a repairman look at my Kenmore Dishwasher 665.13469K902 several months ago and was told it needed a new control board - maybe, or the control panel. My choice, I guess. Both were expensive so I chose to hand-wash dishes for a while. Hey, I got kids - they can do it, right?

Now that my wife and I are tired of doing our kid's dishes I think I'll try replacing the control board myself. Can I get a step-by-step?

Also, is there any chance that leaving the dishwasher unused for months has damaged it?

Looking forward to drinking a cold one while admiring my repaired appliance doing its thing with the new part purchased from the Samurai!

The dirty secret of our craft is that there are far too many repairmen who replace the control board as a "hail Mary" pass. Sometimes the problem was never the control, sometimes it really is the control board but there's another issue causing the control board to go out, and maybe 1/2 the time the problem is actually in the board.

What's actually happening?

Onegai Shimasu,

If I remember correctly it started, filled with water...aaaand...that's about it. It did not wash or rinse or finish.

These control boards rarely fail, most of the time it's the membrane keypads that fail and cause the problems.

That could be a board. Could be a dead motor. Could be a broken wire harness between the board and the motor. Do you have a meter to investigate resistance and continuity?

Samurai Sensei and Sempai,

Canyitchitorwha!

I did a test this morning. This is what it does:

Ichi
7:42am: Started the machine. Water noises; setting lights on (Smart Wash, Hight Temp, Sani-Wash, Heated Dry, Start) Continues for 2 minutes.

Ni
7:44am: Motor noises start for a few seconds, stop; then start again. (Washing noises?) Continues for 2 minutes.

San
7:46am: Motor noises stop; then start again, but sound a little different then before. Continues for 5 - 6 minutes.

Shi
7:52: All sounds cease. Lights stay on (Smart Wash, High Temp, Sani-Wash, Heated Dry, Start) After 10 minutes of silence I check inside.

Go
8:02am: I check inside. Everything is wet and warm. Water fills the bottom.

Roku
8:03am: I push the cancel button; machine drains, pump sucks. Cancel light is on; all other lights are off. Continues for 2 minutes.

Shichi
8:05am: All sounds cease; Cancel light turns off.

Hachi
The End.

I have a mulitmeter... somewhere around here. I am at white belt level in appliance repair skills. I can do nuts and bolts and pulling and plugging. Mostly, just.

Oiiiiishi!

There may be nothing wrong with the DishWasher ...
The 10 minutes of silence may be the Heater heating the water..
OR the Heater may not be working ..
What was problem why you called the repairman ?

In this morning's test I only waited 10 minutes after it stopped. I originally called a repairman because it never continued after that point. I can try it again. How long should I wait before I can be confidant that it will not continue?

... How long should I wait before I can be confidant that it will not continue?

may depend on the input water temperature...
Can you measure the water temperature at the start of the "Wash Cycle"
then again after 10 minutes of "stopping" ?
It may be a bad Heater Element
OR may be a bad Controller
Can someone do some electrical testing with a meter ?

Onegai shimasu,

Test #2:

1) The temp of the water standing in the bottom of the machine after starting was 117 degrees Fahrenheit.
2) Water temp when it stopped "running" was 114.
3) After 10 minutes of "not running" 112 degrees
4) Another 10 minutes later it was 110 degrees.
5) Every 25 - 30 minutes the machine "runs" for about 1 minute,
6) The water in the machine is the same water from the beginning; no more is ever added, and it continues cooling.
7) Stopped the test and drained the machine after 3 hours.

I'll do the electrical meter testing myself, but I'll need to be told how.
