Dishwasher Repair / Samsung DMT400 Drain error
« Last post by db1911 on August 17, 2014, 12:11:26 AM »
Hello all,
My DMT400 is about two years old and functioned perfectly until last week. Once the wash cycle gets to the point it should drain, the dishwasher doesn't drain and the "Delicate" light flashes indicating a drain fault. If I cancel the wash and drain using the Heavy+Delicate switches, the pump works fine and drains the water. I disassembled the drain, cleaned everything and cleared the drain line with shop air. No issues there. Like I said, it fails to drain normally during the wash cycle but drains if I cancel the wash. Anyone see this before? I suspect that a sensor isn't working since the pump obviously works manually. I would appreciate any insight or knowledge with this issue. I'm not sure where the sensor is located or what it looks like.

I  have looked all over the place for the  service  manual.

I have been able to find the dryer service manual here in  a thread. I have been through the manual section several times. Does anyone know where I can  get a manual  or just instructions  entering service mode and performing test.

Is your liquid line drier hot?  These are famous for condenser coil being blocked. Very thick and fine finned. The only way to clean is compressed air. Blow the coil out. If this is the cause you will see immediate results. Drier will be cool to the touch almost immediately.

Very nice!!

1989 Subzero 532; all of the sudden today the freezer is at 40 degrees. The refrigerator is well within the safe temperature zone. Prior to today the freezer was always very cold at about 8/10.  There is no iceball on the refrigerator or freezer side. When I press the button on the freezer the freezer fan runs. When I press the button on the refrigerator door the refrigerator fan doesn't seem to run, but both doors suction shut and seal well. The freezer compressor appears to be running noisily, and is quite hot. The refrigerator compressor runs less often and is not quite as hot. The freezer compressor makes a slightly irregular soft chirping type sound when listening with a stethoscope. The timer appears to be working correctly and the gears are turning. I tried rebooting the power. The coil fan is running happily and I keep the coils cleaned fairly regularly.

Repairs in the last four years include: new refrigerator side evaporator, condenser motor assembly, heat exchanger, drier, gaskets, control, timer, and fan.

I would think I would see a big ice chunk somewhere on the freezer side if a leak sprung up somewhere in the sealed system, even if the freezer was not cooling - like it did before on the refrigerator. The sudden nature of this is bothersome, do compressors fail suddenly? Perhaps the sealed system is still sealed, and everything is turning on when it is supposed to, but the compressor just "partially died" and now cannot compress enough? Is this system separate from the refrigerator side? Why would the refrigerator be working fine, and why would the freezer be sort of cool but not frozen?

Any constructive input much welcomed.

Replace the IM assy. The ejector may be caught on bent ice strippers. O0

Sounds like the heater is dead, bad sensor (should be located under the im mold if its a flex tray model) or a stripped motor. In any case you would have to replace the entire im to remedy the issue.
