OPERATION
ANDREPAIR
SAFETYPRECATIONS
Always turn off the electric power supply before servicing any electrical
component,makingohmmeterchecks,or replacingany parts.
All voltagechecksshouldbe made with a voltmeterhavinga full scale range of
130voltsor higher.
After serviceis completed,be sure all safety-grounding
circuitsare complete,all
electricalconnections
are secure,and all accesspanelsare in place.
T I M ER
With the timer,user selectsthe variouscleaningcyclesof the dishwasher.The
timer controlsall the electricalfunctionsof the dishwasherin all stagesof each
cycle.All functionscan be tracedon the chart.Diagramprovidedin this service
m a n ua l .
To Test The Timer
lf the timer is suspectedof faultyoperation,referencetimer chart and electrical
schematicdiagramand proceedas follows:
1. lndex the timer to the first incrementof the normalcycle,which is a drain
period.
2. lf the pump motorfails to operateduringthe first cycle increment,check for
powerat the pump motorconnectorblock,if there is no powercheckthe door
latch switch,if there is power,check the pump motor as describedin this
section.
3. lf the pumpmotordoes operate,let the timermotoradvancethe timerthrough
the drain incrementto determineif the timer motor and drive train are fully
operative.
4. Let the timer advance,or index it forwardto the portion of the cycle in
question.
5. lf a componentcontrolledby the timerfailsto functionas the timeradvances
throughthe cycle,checkfor voltageat the timerterminals.lf the checkvoltage
is suppliedto the component,check the componentas describedin this
section.
Continuitythrough timer contacts,other controls,and wires can also be
checkedwith an ohmmeterwith electricalpowerdisconnected.
lf the timerscontactsfail to close in the sequenceshownon the timer chart
are burned(have resistancemeasurablewith an ohmmeter),or if timer does
not advanceautomatically,
replacethe timer.
To ReplaceTimer
1. Disconnect

TROUBLESHOOTING
The troubleshootingcheek list is common for all dishwashermodels.
They use differentpartsto accomplishthe samething and diagnosis will
remainsimilar.
When a problem arises,and a possible cause is listed, follow the test,
remove or replace proceduresas outline in this service manual. The
wiring diagram, shematic and timer cycle chat is a necessity when
makingelectricalchecks.In most casesan ohmmeterwill handleall the
tests necessary.
For checking any particularcycle of operation,it absolutely necessary
that the cycle be set up as outlinedin the productowner'sguide.
