In Topic: Fisher & Paykel Nautilus Dishwasher, age? and fault.

Thanks for that. Much appreciated.


I let it run for probably 10 minutes or more and there was no discernible heat at all.


I'll check the voltages, but given the resistance readings I'm thinking the fault lies up in the panel.


I'll give it another run and check voltages, but I think I'll end up having to pull the door apart and have a look at the controller/relays.


Are these boards/assemblies available if this is the fault?

Does the blinking light on the back mean anything, or is that just normal?

Hi Guys, thanks for the response.

I got a chance to have another look today. I tinkered around and connected the chilled water solenoid to the ice maker (after changing the keyed tabs), the water made its way to the ice tray no probs. So I returned it all to its original state.

This currently rules out issues with the solenoid, and lines..... However I did notice, that what I now know is the icemaker controller card after watching Samurai Appliance Repair Mans video, is blinking red 4 times. I'm presuming this must be some form of alarm. I noticed this on the previous visit, but didn't think much of it.

Any further thoughts? Dead controller, something else?


In Topic: LG Dishwasher - LD-12AW2 Door leak

30 October 2011 - 07:03 PM

Hi all, It's fixed ... although I'm not entirely sure which item in the final sequence of events was the solution. Here is what was done, I'd be interested in others thoughts.

1/ As per Samanera's suggestion (thanks for your time btw), I pulled all the spray arms out and gave them a clean. Each of the 3 arms had blockages. Probably about two in each of them, with ceramic, and bits and pieces of associated debris.

2/ We pulled the drain pump out to check for blockages

3/ Whilst the drain pump was out we pulled the pressure switch that was connected to this area out and apart. The diaphragm was fine, and we couldn't see any issues.

4/ Before reinstalling the pump and pressure switch, I blew out the pressure switch line, and quite a bit of greasy gunk came out (blocked and not switching perhaps?)

5/ Pump and pressure switch were then reinstalled.

6/ Test ran without the spray arms, and the washer ran with the water level notably lower than previous, and didn't even make it up to the spill / dam seal in the front of the door (i.e. no leak)

8/ Replaced all of the spray arms, and ran again, the water level was even lower with these in place.

Fixed ..... was it most likely the blocked spray arms, or a pressure switch blockage?


Sorry, Samanera should have read "Certified Tech Group 51", read my own title in the post above the last one ..... doh!

Hi, yes I've already done that, and have a price on the hinges, was just trying to get a feel for the likelihood of them being the faulty item. I have also asked this of the importer. I'll go and pull it apart for a look when I get a chance.
