KAID Dishwasher - just runs continuously?
« on: February 08, 2012, 08:05:10 AM »

Dishwasher runs constantly.  Water does get hot, so I assumed the heater element is good.  When I hot cancel, water pumps out without hesitation.  Control Panel touch pad allows you to select cycles and it responds.  Is this a thermistor issue?  or is their a timer like a washer machine?

Back behind your bottom panel there should be a manual,  test the heater to make sure its working

The water does get very hot and there is plenty of steam coming out when you open the door.  Is this enough or do I need to put a meter on it?

It will take 2 to 3 hours to complete a cycle
