Hello all,newbee here.

My dishwasher is confused. intermittantly works.

For the past 6 mos., it would only turn on w/ Normal wash & the 3 drying lights-then start button.

Now,those lights work,but not starting/running.

Any help/advice?

> Control Board?

Thanks,Jeff.

Is the start led flashing?  If it is, is it flashing slowly or rapidly?  Try pressing cancel.  De-energize unit for 5 minutes then re-energize and attempt to enter diagnostic mode to check component operation.  Press heated dry-normal-heated dry-normal within a 6 second time frame and close door.  Should advance through a quick test cycle.

Hi. 

The 'Normal' wash button does not illuminate now. Only - the drying  buttons light up.? 

Can I assume, the diagnostic sequence you spoke of consists of the "heated dry-then normal >(wash button),heated dry,normal wash?

OK, tried to enter Diagnostic mode. Nothing. 

I had/have NO  'start'  LED: flashing or steady.

As to D mode, should I have door open prior to enter D mode?

Cancel button does nothing-won't turn off the 3 lights that do illuminate> 'Hi-Temp Scrub,-Sani-Rinse,-Heat Dry.

Pushing each light will turn them on/off. 

Help me Obi-Wan.

Jeff.

Affirmative on sequence.  Doesn't matter if door is open or closed when first activating diagnostic mode but door needs to be closed to engage mode.  If that fails, try Sani Rinse-Heat Dry-Sani Rinse-Heat Dry and close door.  The previous keydance came from the tech sheet for your model but the second keydance works on many models.  If successful all leds should light and with door closed should proceed through 5 minute test cycle where it test runs all components.  If can't access diagnostic could be bad touch control (console).  If access is successful, all leds light and nothing else happens with door closed, might be a bad door latch assy.

OK.

The second method seems to work:

All LEDs lit,then proceeded to cycle thru 'some'functions. Normal wash,Rinse only,Drain.and Dry light....

Then shut down.

NO flashing lights,etc. to tell me any codes?

What's next,wise one?

Replace the touchpad/console assembly and all will be fixed.

 

All these membrane touchpads have problems and fail in all brands, some more than others.

 

Everything you describe points to bad touchpad.

Hi Willie,

While running Diagnostic, I pressed Normal wash, and machine ran thru cycle. 

Still suspect Touchpad panel?

Thanks,Jeff.

Generally diagnostics don't use the start key to run the diagnostics.

 

If you can get the touchpad to respond to the diagnostic starting procedure and it goes thru the diagnostics that proves your main control board is OK.

 

Another test on a lot of the newer Whirlpools/KitchenAids is to turn power off to unit disconnect key pad from controller reapply power and shut the door.  If the control board is good it should go into a 2 minute drain cycle and stop.  If it does that it also proves the controller is OK and didn't see the touchpad, so by default your touchpad is bad if it won't work.

Funky One, I'm sure you can,but no one of importance cares anymore. Those of 'our' age,probably couldn't even hear it!

I remember a test pattern that had an Indian Chief picture in the middle. Pittsburgh,PA ,late '50s-early '60s. 

Of course, The Star Spangled Banner played before the monotone.
