    Dishwasher continues to hum/run after cycle is finished. If I open and close door it still continues. If I open door and hit Reset and close door it works fine again till next run cycle.

    If the noise seems to be coming from the door, then it is probably the blower motor that is bad. The blower motor is located inside the door and it assists with the drying. Let us know what you find.

    This is the blower motor for your model dishwasher:

    Is there a video or repair manual for replacing the blower motor? If so I want to purchase the blower motor from you. Thanks for the help.

    Since the blower is still working couldn't it be the vent door actuator? If so, what is that part number?

    If it was the door actuator I don't think the noise would be constant.

    You are right. It was the fan motor which had seized. Bought a new washer rather than repaired the 7 year old one.

    I have the same issue and am ordering the part from your site. I am trying to download the pdf files for replacing the part but I only get a blank page for each file. Can you send by other means or repost? Thanks
