I've bought a house that came with an integrated new world DW60 dishwasher the house had been empty for a number of months.
It worked fine for at least 1 load but now it doesnt enter the wash cycle. On any program it will drain and fill with cold water but now it no longer sprays hot water after several minutes it drains again and fills with cold water.
What i've tried so far
i've opened it up and checked the main wash pump the drain pump and the heating element. they all got what i thought was normal readings from the multimeter
Main wash pump 75 ohms drain pump 135 ohms heating element 30 ohms
the washer was draining fine so wasnt concerned about it but i did find some loose glass around the inlet for that pump.
thinking maybe that was it, i put everything back and switched it on. no joy unfortunately.
if the flowthrough heater was the problem then the machine would spray cold water around but never get up to temperature surely so thats not the problem.
this led me to thinking it is a problem with the main wash pump. which got normal readings from the multimeter 75ohms. the capacitor had no obvious signs of being blown, and when tested with the multimeter seemed to charge up correctly. the shaft rotated freely so there was no blockage.
i removed the motor/pump and hooked it up to AC power using an old lamp cord. and it worked ok. baffled i put the whole thing back together and switched it on still no luck.
and now i'm here. any ideas?
