Customer had a no responsive d/w, no lights, unable to enter diagnostic mode. Steady green lite on board. Replaced UI board, set personality jumper according to model number. Unit now functions, but no digital display, and the heated dry lite and upper/lower lights not working. I also note the personality jumper on the main control is different than the UI? Both set according to model number. Is different personality pins common?

Hi Robert,

What part number did you order for the UI Board?

Where did you buy it at? If your in Phoenix we have Appliance Parts Company locations all around the Valley, did you get it there?

Here's the UI Board for this model:

All these UI Boards come with instructions to set the jumpers, that's all you need to do. I replaced a UI Board a couple weeks ago and set the jumpers and it worked perfect!

We ordered from APCO, this is a factory order, had to wait 2-3 weeks. Used UI part number as suggested. Maybe the harness has failed somewhere?. The customer claimed they had a GE service tech out, and suggested both the UI board, and main control need to be replaced at the same time. The dishwasher is washing/draining at this time. Seems to be heating water. Just cant see it on the display?

Ok,

Possibly the door wire harness, so let's check for 13.5 Volts DC at the UI Board to verify that.

--->Check for 13.5 Volts DC on the UI board connector J401-1 (blk/grn) to J401-2 (yel/blu).

Let us know what you find.
