This machine plugs into the drain pump and the drain pump plugs into the wall.  The drain pump has a builtin  safety to shut the machine down if it is clogged and not draining.  Verify you drain is clear.  If it is clear and draining correctly the drain pump needs replaced.  Ive replaced a handful of these over the years.  What you can do to test it is to remove the back cover, unplug the ice maker from the drain pump, and plug it directly into an outlet.  Dont forget to plug the drain pump in well.  This way they can run independtly,  and that will rule out your board.


Pump Part # 1901A

Thank you for the reply, Did that and the control panel will still not power on.

I would verify the pump first.  I doubt it is your board. Read above

Suggestions on best source for the W10122069 control board?     I see listing for new and remanufactured, would anyone ever recommend going with a repaired board over new oem board for this machine?

Most likely the control board. Take it out and look for burnt traces on the pc board. If you have decent soldering skills, you can fix it.

Thanks for the reply Fletch...  When I inspected it, it actually appeared brand new.  No signs that it's been in we service for years, etc.  Both sides of the board are clean...

Hi,

I have this unit and yesterday morning when I opened the unit the light and control panel were not on.

The only thing I found online that causes the unit to lose power to the controls is the high level in the pump reservoir.

      So I did a manual cleaning of the unit including pump reservoir, screen, etc.   I plugged the unit back in and it ran fine.  It made about a 1/4 bin of nice thick ice before I went to bed.  I got up this morning and the unit is once again off.  Still no high level in the water reservoir and everything appears normal in those regards.

The pump operates correctly, the screen is clear, etc.  When I first plug the unit in the pump will cycle on like it's supposed to.  But the control panel still does not light up and cannot be turned on.  If I dump water into the ice bin it will flow down into the pump reservoir, the pump will turn on when it see's the water level and will pump that water out as it should.  The pump will work completely independent of the rest of the ice machine. 

     The control power for the machine is interlocked into the pump circuit for that high level...  I do have 120V coming out of the pump receptacle where the control circuit plugs in.  Furthermore I have 120V power on the plug near the transformer where the control board is located.  So I now figure it's not the power to the machine, the pump high level circuit, the cord sending power to the ac transformer/control board.   

     So is there anything else that I can check that will cause the unit to not power on vs it just being a bad control board at this time.  I took the control board off and inspected it.  I see no corrosion, burns, etc.  All the connections are clean and tight.  I blew all the connection off with compressed air to make sure there is not any water shorting anything out. 

Thanks for any and all help you can provide.


Part number for the control board appears to be W1022069

Dishwasher Repair / KitchenAid KDTE104EBL1 malfunction after one month
« Last post by applianceowner on April 30, 2016, 09:23:58 AM »
In March the unit was installed by a Lowes vendor.  It performed well for a month, at which point the front indicator light (blue, red, white) would not work at the end of cycle.  As well, dishes were not dry, to varying degrees.  A technician was called by the manufacturer.  They ordered a new control board which was installed on the next visit.  The tech left without testing the unit and in fact said that things still seemed amiss.   The problem has continued and another service call is scheduled for next week.  Any insight is appreciated.  Factory defect, installation problem ?  Seems that three or four service calls is about what a new unit should cost the company, which is what I told them today.  Thanks for participation. The company said the tech should have call their technical support before leaving last time and is again instructed to do so on the next visit. Thanks again.
