Dispenser has a single solenoid that opens the detergent door and dispenses rinse aid. WPW10428214 is the part number of the dispenser. Solenoid opens detergent door during normal cycle about 17 minutes into the wash and then does nothing else for the rest of the cycle. I tried running the dishwasher through the service diagnostics cycle but it only actuates the solenoid once.

1. What could be causing this?
2. How can I find out when in the normal cycle it's supposed to dispense rinse aid?

Amana customer service doesn't seem to be too friendly with handing out techical data. They tried to get me to pay a service technition $89 to work on my $200 dishwasher.

Thank for the help in advance.

Hi,

There should be another digit after the "W" at the end of your model number.

Should be one of these two here:

ADB1400AGW0
ADB1400AGW1

I did locate the tech. data sheet, I'm attaching it below.

Looks like the computer isn't telling the actuator to open the second time. What to do?

Order a new control board.

Here's the control board for your model: W10906422
