  • DIY fix your Maytag dishwasher on the cheap

    I repaired my Kenmore Ultrawash dishwasher, Model 665.13742K607 using the methods found here. Thank you.I peeled off the entire plastic touch pad. Before reattaching it, I used white out to touch up the underside where paint was torn. I scraped off the stained circuit traces with a hand held single edge razor blade. I used this pen to draw the circuits: https://www.circuitscribe.com/product/circuit-scri... rather than the rear window defogger. It worked really well, the line width was just right.

    I repaired my Kenmore Ultrawash dishwasher, Model 665.13742K607 using the methods found here. Thank you.I peeled off the entire plastic touch pad. Before reattaching it, I used white out to touch up the underside where paint was torn. I scraped off the stained circuit traces with a hand held single edge razor blade. I used this pen to draw the circuits: https://www.circuitscribe.com/product/circuit-scri... rather than the rear window defogger. It worked really well, the line width was just right. I used jewler's magnifying glasses and a head light. I didn't use the liquid electrical tape but wish I had. After the ink was dry, I coated that side of the ribbon with one thin coat of 100% silicone spread with a putty knife. We bought this machine eight years ago. By the time we installed it the warranty was up. We used it twice before it started acting up and soon failed to light up at all. We used it as a storage cupboard for cleaning supplies and cutting boards since.The corrosion was where the ribbon turns to enter the slot. In my case, all fourteen of the circuit tracings were stained (rusted?) The stains reached up under the transparent plastic cover strip on top of the ribbon. I removed an inch of it to reach the corrosion, scrape it off and retrace it with the pen. I cleaned off the old adhesive with a putty knife and paint thinner. I reattached the touch pad using 100% silicone caulk and using a bendable stick and two G-clamps, held the touch pad flat while the silicone cured over night. I believe the water that caused the corrosion on the circuits came from liquid running off the counter and over the touch pad and not from steam or water coming from inside the machine during use.
