Possible that the main module- processor- has failed - in which case there wont be any switching of the modes. Check power circuits and plug in's , if there is moisture use a heater to remove and reset the PCB.

Whirlpool adp 6515ix dishwasher start button is flashing in 4 time cycles-what does this tell me please. None of the manuals indicate what the flashing could be signalling.

Hello Pat Braley - The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may also prevent the unit to start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

I found a small part (looks like the top part of a pen) in my washer, now when i turn on the washer the goes in but does not stop, does not start the wash cycle. Also door keeps locking and unlocking.


How to run a diagnostic test:
  1. Unplug power cord, then wait 30 seconds.
  2. After plugging in, follow these instructions...
To Enter SERVICE MODE: Press Signal-Delay-5ignal-Delay (within 30 seconds of plugging in washer).

I have a bad Paragon 8145-20 its Sunday all I have in stock is a Paragon 8045-20. I know voltage is the same. Will the 8045-20 work? What is the difference betweentime out and temperature out. If the...


See wiring diagrams and manuals at following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#defrost

8145-20 is 240V time initiated, pressure or temperature terminated with back-up time termination.
8045-20 is 240V time initiated, time terminated.

So 8145-20 has pressure or temperature limit switch that connects to terminal X that turns timer off, and ends defrost cycle. This timer is for hot gas defroster that has pressure/temperature limits. Check and see what the back-up time termination is set at on 8145-20. Look at small inner dial.

The 8045-20 timer does not use pressure/temperature limit switch, and instead you have to estimate length of time you want defrost cycle to run, and set inner dial to that time. Use same time as back-up time termination on 8145-20. Of course the pressure/temperature limits would not be exact and defrost cycle might not work correctly.

Here's the change-over wiring from 8145-20 to 8045-20.
There are other wiring variants depending on equipment.
240V hot wires from breaker box are L1 and L2
a) 8145-20 L1 is at terminal 1 > move L1 to terminal N on 8045-20
8145-20 L2 is at terminal N > move L2 to terminal X on 8045-20

b) 8145-20 hot gas defroster is at NO terminal 3 > move defroster to NO terminal 3 on 8045-20
Complete the 240 circuit to defroster by connecting to L2 at terminal X

c) 8145-20 refrigeration is at NC terminal 4 > move refrigeration to NC terminal 4 on 8045-20
Complete the 240 circuit to refrigeration by connecting to L2 at terminal X

None working Polariod FLM 2601.


Hmm,
Might be a bad connection inside set, but might want to get the obvious stuff out of the way first.
1. Verify outlet is working by plugging something else into it.
2. Make sure the ac cord is pushed in all the way into tv. Might not be making good contact.
3. Double check to make sure tv doesn't have a power on/off switch. Some TVs have a power button and also a power switch somewhere on the bottom or back of set that might've been flipped off if there is one.

8. Switch off the power
9. Switch on the power. The fault code should have cleared
This is the general way of resetting a Dyson machine. For any fault try this first. The diagnostic number are interpreted as follows:- First 3 amount of wash cycle, Second set are the recorded faults, and the last 3 is the software upgrade version

Push in the red "Defrost Button" located in the center of the temperature control dial. Defrost cycle will start immediately. NOTE: Turning the temperature control dial to the OFF position is not required. Defrosting usually takes a few hours. When defrosting is complete, the red "Defrost Button" will release automatically. Then the refrigerator will resume normal operation while moving towards the set temperature. NOTE: After defrosting, allow a few hours to reach the set temperature before making any further adjustments.
