Customers complaint "Will not start" The display is flashing/blinking for ( 3 left buttons ) Pots/Pans--Normal wash---Econo wash.......Push and hold cancel button for four seconds and the 3 lights stop flashing and last cycle selected button/light will flash...................Push the start button, close the door but with-in 4 seconds the three left buttons/ lights start to flash.....You can hear relays click from the control board , located lower left, shoved under the unit ............The use and care guide states to 'Push the start button and close the door with-in four seconds'............I accessed the door switch and the door switch was depressed ( on position ??)............... No wire diagram/schematic found on the machine.....................The lady stated that it has been doing this for a while, possibly for the past year, getting more frequent...She just pressed 'cancel' and then 'start' and it would work...........I was leaning towards the door switch.............Combing the fix-it sites I found the exact complaint and the FixYa site, the guy stated a 'drain problem'........I hate to have to pull a unit and chase wires, but............................Another statement listed this Viking as an Asco model # DBF450, but I ain't seen one of them either..................................P.S. found the fault code for the three flashing buttons, it states " Flood Sensor Disconnect " is at fault............Rats, I did not see any water in the bottom, much less a " Flood Sensor Disconnect"..... Now I gotta find a loose connection... .

The Dojo is a tech-only forum that you have access to.  Go to the Appliantology home page and scan down the list of forums, you'll see it.  

 

The best way to fix your customer's dishwasher, though, is to simply start a new topic here in the Kitchen forum.  Be sure to include the complete model number and a good problem description.
