I've got a Kenmore d/w mod: 665.665.13742k603 that will not power on.  I have already checked and confirmed:

 

1)120VAC at outlet and to terminal block under d/w

2) voltage to the main control board

3) both door switchs

5) Door latch functions normal

4) thermal fuse has continuity

 

This leaves either the touchpad/control panel (p/n: 1551936) at $133.50, or the main control board (p/n: 1874821) at $195.65 as the cause of failure.

 

My question is: how can I determine which one it is without purchasing both expensive electronic components and simply part swapping? 

 

Thanks

Remove power

Disconnect  touch-pad ribbon from control

Shut door

Re-apply power

Does drain pump come on?

If so, board is probably good, replace touch-pad...

Thanks Havoc!

 

I did disconnect power,

unplugged ribbon connector from touchpad,

and then plugged back in,

rebooted power and closed door.

 

No lights, but the drain pump did run for about 20-30 seconds then auto shut off.

 

Is your diagnostic procedure for this in the service manual or is it one of the tricks I just haven't learned yet?

 

I just dont see how any tech is supposed to know that unless its in the service manual or tech sheet...

 

I appreciate the help and knowledge! 

 

Cheers and beers!

If this feature is available it will usually be noted on the techsheet, but worth a try even if not.

IT has been on the tech sheets.  Usually can be found by taking the bottom  cover off and attached to the cover itself.  Common for these touch pads/user interfaces to go bad.  We have changed at least 10 of them in the last year.

So then why on earth won't you, as a tech, search for or request the tech sheet/manual ??




Pre-diagnosising as mentioned in the video doesn't mean just to come on appliantology and ask how to do something. That's expected from a diyer but not from a professional tech, especially one that is inexperienced and wanting to learn.

We don't mind helping each other with questions but we expect each other to have at least put in some research. Then the discussions between us will be more detailed and fruitful as we will indeed be on the same page. Search the site for prior discussions as well.
