In Topic: Kitchen Aid dishwasher KUDS03FTBL3, lights OK, no wash, ozone odor

17 November 2014 - 02:17 AM

Your dishwasher has two pumps - main circulation pump, as well as a small drain pump.  When you press CANCEL,  it should shut off power to main pump and send power to drain pump.   It sounds like neither are starting for you. Two pumps don't (usually) go out at the same time,  so i'd look a little higher - at main control board in top panel, under keypad.  Run diagnostics (usually this is heated dry>normal>heated dry>normal,  or the other way around in some models) and see if anything blinks.    If so, which light(s)?   If not,  inspect board itself for burnt components.... check for voltage output to pumps....


Your main recirc motor has a large capacitor on it that should be inspected as well.  Look for swelling or leaking.

P.S. When ordering a Samsung refrigerator PCB,  always use the BOM # over the model #.

In Topic: GE JT952Cf4CC With Bad Bake Element

Did tech actually say 120?   Electric oven elements take 220-240V,  never 120.  


Element should not have any power when oven/board is off.  This doesn't mean you shouldn't be careful - boards/relays can fail, giving 220V to element.  Only way to find out is with a voltmeter.

I don't have an explanation, but I can tell you this is "normal" of GE/Frigidaire.   You never know what to expect in terms of pricing.


The original part # was 5304452068,  has been substituted to 5304470638.   Maybe one will pop up on ebay eventually but I wouldn't hold my breath.


If it were my dishwasher,  i'd buy a $500 Bosch (much better dishwasher than ANYTHING Frigidaire sells) and call it a day.

In Topic: 12784415 Jazz Board Issue, I think

First, you've got a bad model #.  Several digits are wrong.


Your description is certainly odd, but if everything you say is true, I would lean towards control board.
