Dishwasher PF warning...weird


I have a 15 yr old Lady Kenmore dishwasher, kept failing for 6 months on and off - and showing PF sign, stopping half way through the cycle (any cycle), plugged it into extension cord on different outlet and has now worked 3 times in a row..

may be a stupid question, but why would an outlet do this, it works fine for the incinerator food disposal...

also, if i switch the plugs, the incinerator runs full time, even without being switched on - somehow seems to have constant current to it?

Your receptacle is likely wired as half switched, half constant on. This is typical, and should not surprise you.

There could be a loose connection at the receptacle. I suggest that you examine the wiring at the receptacle and make sure all connections are sound.

However, don;t do this unless you know what you are doing, as electricity can kill and cause fires.
