IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
CAUTION: This machine must be electrically grounded through the grounding lead in the 3-prong power cord if plugged into a properly grounded appliance outlet, or through a separate No. 14 AWG or larger wire from the cabinet to an established ground. In all cases the grounding method must comply with any local electrical code requirements. To reduce the risk of shock, disconnect the power supply cord before servicing. CAUTION: ALL TERMINALS AND INTERNAL PARTS SHOULD BE TREATED AS LIVE. IMPORTANT: RECONNECT ALL GROUNDING DEVICES. If grounding wires, screws, straps, clips, nuts or washers are removed for service they must be returned to their original position and properly fastened.
The DD605 and DS605 electronic controllers use a 16-bit microcontroller to provide the user interface, motor and ancillary functions. The microcontroller also controls the switchmode power supply. This power supply uses a dropping resistor on the heater plate and phase control of the mains voltage to produce a variable voltage supply to the motors and solenoids of the DishDrawer. A separate 24v dc power supply on the chassis board (located in the lower left corner of the chassis) supplies power to the microcontroller and LEDs in the electronic controllers.
of the porcelain enamelled steel heater plate. A large dropping resistor is also printed onto the heater plate and forms part of the power supply. The heater plate is clamped in place by a lock ring nut and supports the motor at the bottom of the tub. The heater element is only activated during wash cycles. It is not used for drying. The water temperature is sensed by a thermistor on the heater plate pcb. Overheat protection is provided by a thermal fuse on the heater plate itself. The heater plate must be grounded.
The fan runs continuously during the drying phase of a wash cycle and will restart if the tub is opened and closed again. After the drying phase is complete at the end of the wash program the fan continues to run for up to two hours but will not restart if the tub is opened and closed.
To remove the tub 1. Open the drawer fully. 2. Depress the right-hand tub release clip and push it back about 1.5 inches. Repeat for the left-hand side. 3. Lift the tub up and off the drawer runners. 4. If turning the tub over rotate it counter/anti clockwise. 5. Slide both runners back into the product. 6. Refit in the reverse manner (if the tub was turned over ensure it is rotated clockwise before placing it on the runners).
Tub Home Sensor
The tub home sensor determines when the tub is closed. The tub home sensor consists of an infrared sender and receiver mounted on the right side of electronic controller. When the tub is fully closed infrared light is transmitted from the sender through a light pipe on the side of the tub, through a prism mounted in the chassis trim, then back through the other light pipe to the receiver. If the tub is not fully closed the circuit is not complete and the appliance will not operate.
The detergent dispenser door is opened manually for detergent loading and then manually closed ready for the detergent to be delivered to the tub with the inlet water. An inlet water diverter valve is controlled by the electronics to dispense detergent from either detergent chamber as required. A positive displacement pump unit and storage tank are incorporated in the dispenser to supply rinse agent. The volume of rinse agent dispensed may be adjusted by the user to suit water conditions. A glowing red light on the rinse agent filler cap indicates an empty tank.
Amount of Water
The tub fills with about 0.8 US gallons of water, almost level with the base of the spray arm. Once this level is reached the wash pump becomes primed and pumps water through the spray arm causing it to rotate. The electronic controller senses when the wash pump becomes primed and stops filling by turning off the water inlet valve. The load on the wash pump is continuously monitored during the cycle and water level increased if necessary.
The fan draws air through the rear vent in the tub where it absorbs water from the dish load. The moisture-laden air is then mixed with a large quantity of ambient air (from the kitchen) to minimise the amount of visible vapour exiting from the front of the drawer.
The water heater element is a thick film resistive circuit printed onto the dry side

The power button is used to step through the sub modes. Pressing it again will clear the previous fault as well. • Press Keylock button. Pull the drawer front out slightly at the bottom then downwards away from the handle. Refer to fault code descriptions to translate the LEDs. Components on the front of the tub are now accessible. At the start of a wash cycle both actuators are run for 2 or 3 seconds to pull the lid down onto the tub. When replacing the retaining pins ensure the web in the centre of the pin is vertical. Display/Download Diagnostic Sub Mode • Press and hold down Keylock and Start/Pause buttons for about 5 seconds (ensure Keylock is pressed first). Successive Keylock presses also turn segments of the LCD wash icon off and on. If power to the DishDrawer is disconnected or fails with the lid down the drawer may be forced open manually if access is required. However forcing the drawer closed with the lid down is not recommended as it can damage the seal. Diagnostics Mode Quick Reference Guide Diagnostics Mode Warning: In Diagnostics Mode the element can be turned on with no water in the tub. The electronic controller drives it in a clockwise direction to run the wash pump at 2300 – 2850rpm depending on the wash cycle selected and in the counter/anti clockwise direction to run the drain pump at about 4200rpm. The actuator assembly is clipped to the side rail. the lid actuators will raise the lid to the full up position. All LEDs and LCD segments except Keylock should display. which can result in damage to the tub and element. Lid System The lid is a single piece of polymer plastic with a seal co-injection moulded into it. Water Softener Some models are fitted with a Water Softener. This initiates Pen Upload via the lower tub home sensor (sender) light pipe. A glowing red light on the Salt Reservoir Cap indicates the salt reservoir is empty. The water softener will automatically remove hardness from the water using a salt water solution. which is designed to remove calcium and magnesium ions that cause the water to be ‘hard’. see Samurai Appliance Repair Man at www. 4. or three times to exit to Power Off mode.
