Resolved Question:

hi michael
my leisure dishwasher keeps heating after the cycle is finished. I see you answered a similar fault with a beko. You suggested that it needs a new heater/dryer thermostat. Could this be the same problem with mine?

KevinWhiteJA :

Hi, welcome to just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

I do not think it is the heating element that is bad

KevinWhiteJA :

If the element is bad it won't heat

KevinWhiteJA :

how old is it ?

Customer:

hi its about 6 years old

KevinWhiteJA :

OK, if the dishwasher gets too hot the high limit thermostat goes bad and if the element is bad it won't heat at all

KevinWhiteJA :

the problem is with the power board

KevinWhiteJA :

it seems the dishwasher gets stuck during drying cycle due to a faulty control and so it overheats

Customer:

the dishwasher is integrated, so i assume the power board is in the door?

KevinWhiteJA :

Yes, a new one will cost around £35 + labor

Customer:

i intend to replace this myself. Is it a clip out clip in part or do i need to solder?

KevinWhiteJA :

fitting it is quite difficult and should be done by someone who has electrical knowledge ... I would not recommend it as a DIY as mistakes might be dangerous

KevinWhiteJA :

although it does not require soldering etc

Customer:

ok thanks for your help
