Dishwasher only works in HEAVY Wash Mode
« on: May 03, 2009, 08:03:07 PM »

Dishwasher suddenly stopped working in all modes except for HEAVY.  Delay no longer works.  Everything on Touch pad from Normal on down does not work.  Everything above normal does work.  

I don't think it's the touch pad, because if I lock the keypad and then push "normal" the LED blinks, so the control circuit obviously recognizes that I am pushing the buttons.  

I ran diagnostics but cannot figure out how to use that to determine what the problem might be.  

I am leaning towards a new control module- does anyone else have input / ideas?

Model Number: GU940SCGB3icon

If it only works in one mode most of the time that is the control which is probably the most expensive part of the DW.
