Arduino Controlled Dishwasher

Arduino Controlled Dishwasher via Arduino blog.

The control panel on the front of it died, it failed from corrosion getting into the laminated plastic PCB that it’s made up of. Not really repairable, just meant to be replaced, except that it’s a $150 part. From what I could find online, it seems to be a common failure, so why buy an overpriced part that’s just going to fail all over again?This is one of the things I love about the Arduino, it allows me to consider alternatives that I’d have NEVER been able to consider before. If I had to program a controller in assembly, or flat do it with just discrete chips, I’d have never considered this as an option. But with the Arduino, not only can I build my own controller, but it’s almost stupidly simple to do.

  1. Most excellent. Talk about taking control of your stuff. What struck me was when he commented about the pre wash. He found a better way of working the system and tailored it to make a better product. While this is not all wiz bang with pretty lights, this is the exact thing that we want people to see. This would have been a hunk of trash if he had not taken the time to make it his own machine. With the new brains, this things life was probably doubled if not more. Great work.
