could be the actuator. I went through that, replaced the board, ordered another board (thinking the new one was bad) in the end it was the actuator, the board can't tell if the motor is moving or not so it locks the lid. Even though all the checks from the tech booklet checked out. "The actuator is the new "coupling" (as in keep one in your toolbox)" is what I heard a Whirlpool trainer say.

Mine looks more like the first one and according to that website it fits my model. I placed the order for a new one but do you think some electrical contact cleaner would give good results in the interim if i sprayed it into the thermostat?

My problem sounds most like the second post, light tap and the compressor/fans kick right on.


Dishwasher Repair / Bosch Dishwasher Not heating Water
« Last post by met on August 22, 2016, 08:33:13 PM »
Hi all,

I have a Bosch Dishwasher, approximately 4 years old.  It is no longer heating water and I am stuck. 

Model # SHX55RL5UC/64

Started with the control board.  No signs of the infamous burnt solder joint. 
Checked the heater resistance and got ~13 ohms. 
Checked the voltage across the heater and had no voltage across it.  Manually toggled the micro switch which checks for flow, and I got voltage across the heater.  THe Mirco switch is not being activated. 

So I shut the dishwasher off, and restarted it and I was able to capture what was happening on video.  I have included a youtube link.

So, when the dishwasher turns on, the flow switch is made, the heater turns on for a split second then drops out.  You can see the plunger retract in the video.

Because of this, I have eliminated the control board as an issue.  The signal is getting to the proper point.  The heater is also working properly as I am getting the proper resistance and I get voltage across the heater when the micro switch is made. 

Next I thought the problem would be a pressure supply to the heater.  So I could have a clog, although it looks like you can drive a truck through the holes in the heater assembly so that doesn't seem likely, the circulator pump impeller could be damaged, or there could be something wrong with the plunger assembly in the heater. 

I verified the motor was spinning, so I decided to drop the sump assembly and pull the circulator pump.  To my disappointment the impeller looks to be in perfect shape.

Now I am stuck.  I seem to have a pressure problem, yet everything seems to be working properly. 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  My wife is getting frustrated with my troubleshooting effort.  a new dishwasher may be in my future if I don't make some solid progress soon.  Any help out there?

Refrigerator & Freezer Repair / Kenmore SxS compressor wont restart
« Last post by jmbaker on August 22, 2016, 08:01:07 PM »
I have a kenmore SxS 10657752790 approximately 18 years old.

Every now and then it will stop cooling and will only re-start after some percussive maintenance to the TOP of the unit. After a soft tap the unit starts up fine and will continue to cool, freeze and even produce ice.

After some investigation it appears the only components in the top of the fridge are the ADC next to the cold control.

Could it be the relay on the ADC is bad? I looked into the compressor start re-lay but it appears to be in the bottom of the unit.

Any ideas.
