#306160 kenmore elite dishwasher model 665.17262400

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 22 October 2014 - 06:10 AM

The Clean light blinking 7 times should indicate a heating issue. Using the strip diagram on the tech sheet, measure resistance from the control through the heating circuit , this would include the heater and thermostat. If resistance is good, would then suspect control heater relay, which could be verified taking an amp reading during the diagnostic cycle, also found on the tech sheet...




#305810 Bosch SHE6AP06UC/06 dishwasher

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 17 October 2014 - 05:32 AM

Tools needed: # 2 Phillips and flat blade screwdrivers
1. Disconnect & pull out dishwasher.
2. Unplug power supply cord from rear of power module.
3. Lift off tank fleece insulation from right side of dishwasher.
4. Lift off cover from power module

5. Two plastic base tabs hold the power module in place. To remove power module, gently pry base tabs until they clear module and lift the module up from the base. If necessary, gently pry up the rear of the power module.

6. Disconnect top / side wire harnesses from power module, making sure to remove the harnesses with their caps, not individually.

 

Not all terminals are used. To protect power modules, two plugs are used to cover unused terminals.

 

TIP: Check error codes before replacing power modules. Many good power modules are replaced and faulty parts aren’t replaced, causing repeat calls.

 

CAUTION – 80% of all controls returned for analysis check out OK. Most control issues are due to loose connections and error codes for other parts.




#305720 kenmore 11047512605

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 16 October 2014 - 07:12 AM

machine has a stored f24 error(water heating error)

checked the connections to the temp sensor,and all the wires in the strain reliefs

 

now here is the question for the dojo

this model has a sanitize option,and a extra hot water option

but it does not have a heater?

 

am i missing something here?

 

The tech sheet actually calls it a "Water temperature sensing error"

You are right, there is no heater, my guess is that it simply uses more hot tap water in the temp mix.

 

Sensor resistance:

 

 32F      35.9 ohms

 86F       9.7k ohms

104F      6.6k ohms

122F      4.6k ohms

140F      3.2k ohms

158F      2.3k ohms

203F          1k ohms

Haven't walked out on many... there's the time my foot went through the floor, and the time the kitchen floor was covered with blood...

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 11 October 2014 - 09:34 PM

Dishwasher will not pump out:

 

1. Drain restricted. (clogged check valves, very common)
2. Defective drain pump.
3. Air lock in drain hose.
4. Blocked impeller. (broken glass, etc.)
5. Open windings. (should be 28 ohms)
6. Wiring or terminal defective.




#305451 Thermal Fuse Blown Twice on Kitchenaid Dishwasher, Model KUDI02IRWH2

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 11 October 2014 - 09:09 PM

Part number: 661663

Part number: 661663

 

It is crucial that the wires included in the kit are replaced when you replace the thermal fuse, or it will almost certainly blow again. It is not clear from your statement if this was done the first time... Do not ONLY change the fuse!

 

This is the reason the fuse changed to Part Number W10258275, the kit.




#305410 Frigidaire Range FEFL79HCB melting connector on oven control board

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 11 October 2014 - 09:45 AM

Imoutoftown, are you replacing the terminals made specifically for ranges?????.....................They are nickel plated terminals, not the terminals purchased at your local auto parts store.........

good point

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 11 October 2014 - 07:43 AM


Edit: Having looked at the schematic a little while ago, it would appear that the 'Temp Boost' thermostat can prevent the timer from advancing thru the cycle. I presume this means that if the heater is bad,

 

If this thermostat is bad, the dishwasher runs forever trying to obtain a temp it can't measure, the dishwasher will fill with steam. The timer stops about in the 5 o'clock position.




#305395 KitchenAid model kude03ftss1 only cancel light works - replaced everything!

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 11 October 2014 - 07:34 AM

Look at the tech sheet and run your diagnostics, make note of the error codes and then clear the error codes. This thing will remember the error and shut down, even after the problem has been corrected, something I learned the hard way... It doesn't know it has been fixed.

 

(Replacing the control should have eliminated this issue, but only if the error had been corrected, that is why you need to read the error codes...)




#305394 Frigidaire Range FEFL79HCB melting connector on oven control board

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 11 October 2014 - 07:26 AM

I would assume that you would have had to change the burnt terminal each time you changed the board... Maybe looking at a bad run of boards with a bad joint at that terminal? Wouldn't be unheard of from Frigidaire...

A loose  connection to the control that gets worse as the temp rises...




#305292 Whirlpool Dishwasher Model# WDT790SAYB, Fills and Drains OK, Doesn't Run

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 10 October 2014 - 06:13 AM

Does anyone know if a repair wire harness exists for this, or do you really have to replace the entire harness: W10496093? Chat, I've seen this before during an inspection a couple years ago and just saw another one yesterday.

You have to order the harness, but I've cut and spliced just the wires to the diverter motor. I look for this everytime I work on a GWS now, saves me a recall and the customer possible water damage.




#305082 Whirlpool Dishwasher GU1500XTLS1 - Grease spots inside

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 07 October 2014 - 07:28 PM

In the diagnostic check, how long does the heating element stay energized?
 

Just a few seconds at the beginning, more accurate to check for amp draw than to try to feel for heat...




#305019 Whirlpool Dishwasher GU1500XTLS1 - Grease spots inside

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 07 October 2014 - 05:03 AM

Now, it looks like the part number is changed and a new element requires a new board....prices range from 150.00-200.00.
Someone said that the new element is low voltage to save energy.
If I found a oem replacement - that didn't require the board change (25.00) would that be a wise choice?

Thanks for all the help.

 Just the opposite, the heater wattage was increased to give off more heat (due to poor wash and dry results) and the board has to be changed to handle the additional amperage,,,




#304361 Whirl pool oven / microwave gmc275prt01

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 28 September 2014 - 01:15 PM

You will note on the wiring diagram that a 15amp fuse and the cavity TCO (TOD) are in line with the Microwave Door Sense Circuit, if either of these are open, it will give you a false door error...
