AMS900-10N 5 years old and commercial unit

Thank you for that info.

Can you cut all power to this dishwasher by either unplugging it or switching it off at the mains?

Then wait 15 full minutes and re apply power to the dishwasher, it needs to be DEAD for at least 15 mins, with no power even running to it as these parts stay live even when the unit is OFF. I need it to be dead so we can see if the main control board will reset. If it does Great! But if not, and I suspect this may not help you will need a part. But I wll go into that with you after I have confirmation that you have done this test for me;-)

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

ok I have switched off the main power supply at source and waited 15 mins and turned back on and now it appears to be running again.

Ok thats great, its all set ;-)

Sometimes rarely the main control will Glitch in this manner, and that is the solution!

Please rate kindly so I can close this out for us and have a great weekend.
