Title: Lights flashing on touch pad
Post by: Caddy4343 on December 14, 2012, 06:45:20 PM
The Smart Wash and Quick Wash lights keep flashing on the touch pad and sometimes it completes the cycle and sometimes not.  The dishwasher is off when the lights flash. The model number is 665.13114K701.  I ran a diagnostic check per the tech sheet and everything came out ok.  I can't find anything on the tech sheet that refers to those blinking lights.  Does anyone have any ideas?

The tech sheet I look at said this in its troubleshooting section.

Quote
PROBLEM: Won’t Run and LED Above Key(s) is Flashing Rapidly

Potential Cause: Short circuit(s) in keypad or in control’s input lines that read the keys.

Check: Don’t replace both: See first section of “Checking Keypad Operation” for test to determine whether shorts are in the keypad or the control.

I have attached a copy of the tech sheet.

Your model dishwasher uses panel part # W10083047 (http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=omv7WULuxaw&subid=0&offerid=225193.1&type=10&tmpid=2111&RD_PARM0=http%253A%252F%252Fwww.appliancepartspros.com%252Fwhirlpool-panel-cntl-w10083047-ap4323323.html&RD_PARM1=http&RD_PARM2=%253A%252F%252Fwww.appliancepartspros&RD_PARM3=.com%252Fwhirlpool-panel-cntl-w10083047-ap4323323.html) and control board part # W10084141 (http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Main-Control-Board/W10084141/1373167?modelNumber=665.13114K701)

It's been my experience that the panel with the push buttons (W10083047 (http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=omv7WULuxaw&subid=0&offerid=225193.1&type=10&tmpid=2111&RD_PARM0=http%253A%252F%252Fwww.appliancepartspros.com%252Fwhirlpool-panel-cntl-w10083047-ap4323323.html&RD_PARM1=http&RD_PARM2=%253A%252F%252Fwww.appliancepartspros&RD_PARM3=.com%252Fwhirlpool-panel-cntl-w10083047-ap4323323.html)) is at fault and will need to be replaced.

Hope that helps.
