Model: 665.13742K603

 

 

I did search and found the 2006-2008 links.  Are they still what they should be checked.  There was a video on that chain to troubleshoot, but no longer exists.   Any ideas on where to find it.  Any ideas on where to check first.

I checked for a service manual for this model and did not find one.  Is there on that is similar?

Also, some of your trouble shooting require me running the machine. It currenntly won't run.  I should follow the diag test reset on the tech sheet?

Define "won't run."  Examples:

 

- wash motor gets power but just hums

- wash motor never gets power

- no lights on the control panel

The clean light continues to blink. 

Basin is empty of water

Does not look like any water was added to the machine during the cycle when it broke(deterent still at the bottom of washer)

close door and press cancel, you hear a pump run(I think) never seems to stop while the clean light still blinks

Press cancel again and all stop(except blinking)

press start and that light blinks 3 quick time and nothing else happens besides the clean blinking.

 

 

Any sugestions on a substitute service manual from your download section?

Hello, my blinking friend.  May I inquire as to why you would need a service manual for this problem?  It would appear that you have chosen not to read our flatulent and tumescent host's eloquent soliloquy which steps your through this exact problem.  Upon what basis, therefore, do you suppose you would benefit from a service manual which contains even more information that you would not read?  


Allahu Akbar!

I did read the link above and I not sure what some of these parts that are to be checked look like.

 

For instance:

 

2. Heating element not getting voltage. This could be as simple as a loose wire on the heating element or a bad hi-limit thermostat. Or the the heater relay on the control board could be bad, in which case you would replace the control board. Trace the circuit back with your meter and the wiring diagram until you find the missing voltage. 

 

WHat does the bad hi-limit thermostat look like and when might I find it. 

 

 

or

 

3. No water in the basin! The control can't sense a rise in water temperature if there's no water to heat. Makes sense, right? To check this, start the dishwasher. After it finishes the pump out cycle, listen for the hissing of the water filling. If it's very quiet or silent, then there's a problem with the water fill components: bad water inlet valve or the valve isn't getting voltage. Open the door and check the fill level. Water level should be a finger width below the heating element. If it's less than this, then the water inlet valve has gookus in the inlet screen and should be replaced.

 

Where is the water inlet valve?

 

Since I have not taken the unit apart yet I do not know how easy it will be to find and check these things.  I thought if there was a service document to look at in your library then I could go over that first.

It turned out to be the heating element.  There was what looked like bubbled up section on the old element, but I was still getting a 3 or 4 readind on the OHM meter.  The unit would do the 7 blink error every 3 to 4 loads.  I just bought a new element as the old one was suspect and it was not expensive.  I ran an OHM check on the new element in the box and it read 6 to 7.  So I was not exactly sure I ordered the right part.  I replaced it anyway and when taking out the old element it snapped right at the bubling point.  I have since run the washer 10 to 15 times since and not error. 

 

Thanks for the help.
