Replacing the Electronic Control Board on a Dishwasher

October 11, 2019


The electronic control board runs all the
dishwasher’s functions such as filling, washing, drying and draining. This can make it difficult to pinpoint the
control board as the source of a problem. Refer to your tech sheet for diagnostic tests
or have a service technician test the control board before you replace it. If the electronic control board is faulty
you can replace it using the steps in this video. Wear work gloves to protect your hands. Now, let’s get started. Unplug the dishwasher or shut off the house
circuit breaker for the dishwasher. To verify that power is disconnected, make
sure that the control panel doesn’t light up when you press the buttons. Remove the Torx screws from the inner door
panel. Support the outer door panel with one hand
as you remove the final screws so the outer door panel doesn’t fall. Separate the outer door panel and control
panel slightly from the inner door panel. Disconnect the user interface control wire
harness from the control panel. Pull off the outer door panel and control
panel. Lift the locking tab, slide the control board
slightly left and then release it from the inner door panel. Release the locking tab on the side of the
electronic control board cover. Release the remaining locking tabs and remove
the electronic control board cover. Release locking tabs and remove the wire harness
connector brace. Remove the connector box cover. Disconnect the electronic control board wires
and remove the old control board. Connect all of the wires to the new control
board. Install the wire harness connector brace and
connector box cover. Reinstall the electronic control board cover. Push the new control board into the mounting
slots and slide it to the right to engage the locking tab. Reconnect the user interface control wire
harness and attach the outer door panel and control panel to the inner door panel. Reinstall the mounting screws. Reset the house circuit breaker or plug in
the dishwasher to restore electrical power.
