  4. MST Radio Episode 26: Repairing Electronic Control Boards

    Great comment, @BoardFruit- thanks for confirming my perspective and sharing your insight and experience in this business. I hear some appliance techs talking about repairing electronic boards in terms of "beating the manufacturers at their own game," as if the engineers are deliberately designing in failure or somehow making a game out of it. Anyone who's worked in manufacturing and engineering (I've done both) knows that this is just silly nonsense. Engineering departments have a budget they have to work within. Meeting that budget means making some hard decisions about hardware and software. There is no nefarious plot or conspiracy to defraud the customer or make the lives of repair technicians a living hell. For appliance technicians, the most sensible and cost-effective thing to do (from the appliance repair company's perspective) if a board has provably failed is to either replace it with a new OEM board or have it professionally rebuilt by someone like your company.

  18. MST Radio Episode 26: Repairing Electronic Control Boards

    Wise Samurai. It's very challenging to make a business out of this even when you do know electronics. In fact, knowing electronic theory may only be half of what's needed to make money and happiness out of repairing electronics. The proper Facilities and Equipment are a major investment, and you'll need Qualified, Competent Personnel (expensive) to turn over the Volume fast enough to maintain Customer Satisfaction. You need to cover Logistics: shipping and receiving boards from all over the country/world. And none of it matters if you can't get your name out there, so you need to be good at Marketing. And you have to be constantly innovating and researching to expand your service portfolio in order to keep the volume up.
  19. I have changed out many of sumps on this type because wash pump not working. Very common. Got voltage to pump then change sump. Part number: AP6023350
  20. please send me more info @
  21. If motor is getting power, most likely there are food particles stuck in the screen down in the sump. This will diminish the "cleaning power" of your dishwasher. Pop off the cover with a star bit and remove gray cover, clean the screen wicked well. Have seen problems where it affects the pump, easy to pop in a new sump on this model.
