We troubleshot a weird no-heat complaint on a Whirlpool-built (Kenmore branded) dishwasher. This was Whirlpool's newer Global Wash System (GWS) platform dishwasher. Watch how we use the schematic to identify our Load of Interest and pick test points on the control board for measuring voltage, current, and resistance.
You know that complicated-looking cycle sequence chart on the techsheet you saw us using in the video? The one that no one uses because they don't understand it? Yeah, that one. We explained how to use it in an Appliantology Tips and Tricks webinar. It really is a powerful troubleshooting aid that lets you check all the functions and loads in the machine in just a few minutes. Premium tech members at Appliantology may watch this webinar recording here.
Team Samurai maintains and develops two different websites: Master Samurai Tech and Appliantology. Each site is designed to assist you in different stages of your appliance repair journey.
Master Samurai Tech is an online school that provides state-of-the-art appliance repair training, both for new techs and techs who have been in the business for decades.
Appliantology is a tech support community that provides peer-to-peer tech help, service manual downloads, and live training webinars to techs who are hard at work plying their trade. This is the daily information tool that helps to keep you at the top of your game after you've completed your training. Or, if you are already working in the trade, you can use it while you are also taking your MST courses.
While the sites' missions are distinct, they are interconnected in powerful ways. If you enroll with us at the Master Samurai Tech Academy, you can earn premium membership at Appliantology 100% for free.
These memberships are the Master Samurai Tech Student membership and the Master Samurai Tech Alumnus membership. Here's how they work:
When you enroll in any course at Master Samurai Tech, you immediately become eligible for the MST Student membership. That's 6 months of premium membership, giving you access to everything Appliantology has to offer with no extra charge.
How to sign up: your Appliantology 101 course will step you through the process.
An Alumnus membership is just like a Student membership, empowering you with access to all of Appliantology -- but it can be renewed indefinitely for no charge. All you need to do to keep up an Alumnus membership is participate in the forums (more info on that here).
Enrollment at the Master Samurai Tech Academy doesn't just teach you invaluable repair skills; it also opens the door for access to all the great tech help at Appliantology forever.
Step 2 is using the resources at our sister site, Appliantology.org, to help put your training into practice.
We've made that second step even more attainable by giving MST students a FREE 6-month premium membership.
Appliance repair is a trade, which means you are in a constant cycle of learning then doing.
First you learn the basic principles here at Master Samurai Tech, then you master those skills as you apply them in the field.
Appliantology offers several unique ways to help you rise to the top of the trade.
Tech-only forums where you exchange tips, tricks, and know-how with other professionals who share your desire to be the best
Webinar recordings covering both fundamental and advanced topics
Download and request schematics and service manuals
and much more, all in a private, ad-free, collegial environment (in other words - not Facebook!)

using EEPs (electrically equivalent points) to avoid unnecessary disassembly,
voltage vs. voltage drop,
proper meter settings, and more.
The most important and valuable work we do as appliance techs happens between our ears. Being able to read a schematic, devise smart electrical testing, and interpret the results is what leads to a slam-dunk diagnosis. This is how you avoid call-backs and improve profitability and customer satisfaction.
If you can't quite follow or understand the troubleshooting in the video, fear not: You can learn how to troubleshoot like this, too! We love teaching electric circuit troubleshooting to people who want to learn these skills. If you want to earn more money and have greater job satisfaction, enroll now in Fundamentals of Appliance Repair.
