Hello, I just replaced the circulation pump on the dishwasher as the old one stopped working (we heard a pop one night and the cycle never finished). Now once the door is closed the pump starts running and never stops until I open the door again. I took off the pump and checked the leads going to the pump - it has 120V once the door is closed - this is with all lights off. Can you please advise?

The circulation pump looks to be powered directly from the unit's electronic control (# 807128502). It may be that a relay on the circuit board is shorted and powering the pump continually. Maybe when the motor failed it damaged the control at the same time?

I don't know any other reason the motor would be powered constantly.

Sorry should have mentioned this too... after the initial problem we realised that water was not reaching the top rack even though water was going to the machine. I checked the pump and got no ohms reading so I replaced the pump. Then I got the issue with it running all the time. Could the new pump be faulty?

The circulation pump is what circulates water throughout the whole wash system. Without it running it shouldn't be spraying anywhere. It could still drain as that uses a separate motor and pump, and filling doesn't use a pump at all.

Does that mean the board will have to be replaced?

If the scenario I mentioned is in fact the case, yes the electronic control would need to be replaced. :(
