How old is your washer?
Also how long will it fill before it stops with the beep?
And what do the lights on the display do at that point?
Hi thank you for that, no the timing isn't critical.
Yes you are correct. the Main control board has failed and needs to be replaced.
Make sure you tell them you want one with a pre programmed PROM! Other wise the y could send you one that hasn't been programmed and that would cost you more to have a local tech come in and do that;-)
Its easy to do and I will help. One piece of advice, take pics of the old one before disconnecting the wiring plugs so you know for sure which one goes where. They are all different so it hard to mess that up anyway lol
The best place to get a new main control board is: http://www.ransomspares.co.uk/
I would call them to order this part. WHen you call they usually ship the same day;-)

Hi no the machine doesn't need to come out, I will help when you have the new controller.
And yes that is the part you need ;-)
Thank you and have a great weekend!Tech Michael
Hi Mat, yes that is correct. Once you have exposed the control panel you shoudl be able to see how to replace that one.
Its pretty simple;-)
But let me know if you need more help this.
Hi the Main control panel shoudl be where the PLC is;-)
Let me know what part(s) you have, maybe send me a pic?
yes the best way to locate it is to follow the wires down to the PLC, and once the main controller is replaced and the PLC things should be better. Let me know. Usually just the main control board is the problem on these but you never know so Its good you got both ;-)
Hi, make sure you connected everything correctly and that power is ON at the mains.
Also check the junction box to confirm power there in side the dishwasher where it connects to the main supply voltage;-)
You really need to check this with a meter or a 240 VAC test light.
Also it is possible you received a bad board, but that is unlikely although it does happen occasionally.
Hi, no there shouldn't be anything you need to do, make sure no wires actually slipped off. Check that all first. But if you still get no lights and it wont turn on then yes you likley have a bad main control panel but I would return both parts to be sure as there is no way to test them;-(
But.. that said, usually is a wiring error or a wire has come off somewhere else during the proceedure.
Ive been there a million times and Im well expereienced.
