Dishwasher Quit! Please help

I have a whirlpool dishwasher that has quit.

First problem was it had no water which I figured out but after two weeks of no dishwashing it refuses to run.

When I turn it on and you can hear a little buzz sound for a second or two and then it does nothing.

Any suggestions? Thanks a million ~Deborah

Sounds like a bad timer or solenoid.

Whirlpool quiet partner ii dishwasher has quit working. Power is getting to the dishwasher but it is not coming on at all. There is water standing in the bottom of it and a very foul smell is present.


This dishwasher has a thermal fuse that attaches to the main control board that may have failed, it can be tested with a meter for continuity if it does not have continuity then it is your problem.

Dishwasher quit working in rinse cycle. Have checked circut breaker it is ok. The dishwasher has water in the bottom and will do nothing. I bought this disher at lowes on 10/04/2006.Paid $557.00 for it.


Hello,

what most likely is going to be the problem is a blown thermal fuse that attaches to the control panel housing. gain access to the control panel and use should see the thermal fuse,the housing for the control board is grey and this part is white.Remove the wires to it and check for contininity (zero ohms) on it using a ohm meter set to a low ohms setting. If it turns out to be good the next thing to check is the switch(s) on the latch asm using the same method to check them as the fuse.BEFORE CHECKING EITHER OF THOSE BE SURE TO DISCONNECT POWER TO THE DISHWASHER

Good luck, i hope that i 've helped you to figure out what is wrong with your dishwasher,

Hi it is unlikely to be a fuse, more likely it is the pump, the outlet hose or the internal hoses are blocked.

Control clean light keeps blinking and dishwasher will not function


Your dishwasher will do this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water. Sometimes just a false reading.

Reset your console by pressing: high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry

When all the lights are on you are set in diagnostic mode. Just hit cancel a you will be able to run your dishwasher as normal.
If this same light appears again then you have a bad element or thermostat.

My dishwasher quit running. There is water in bottom. I am unable to turn it back on. I have checked latch, electric coming into dishwasher and the breaker to the outlet.


Sounds like the thermal coupler has blown. It si located near the main control board. That can be easily replaced and easy to test.

AS PER DIRECTIONS FROM TECH, I PURCHASED AND INSTALLED A NEW CONTROL UNIT. THIS WAS BECAUSE MY WHIRLPOOL DISHWASHER GOLD GU2300XTLB3 QUIT WORKING IN ALL CYCLES EXCEPT SHORT CYCLE. PUT EVERYTHING BACK...


Hi,

This is a common problem with Whirlpool washers.If the clean light is the one flashing then your dishwasher could have a heater circuit problem (depending on the age) or this could simply just be water colder than it is used to getting.

Repeatedly press the Heated Dry and Hi-Temp Wash(scrub) which ever yours has until all the LED lights come on, press cancel twice and try the dishwasher again making sure to run the water at the kitchen sink till it is hot before starting the dishwasher, if this trips and locks you have a problem with the heating element, or temp sensor.
Press the heated dry button followed by the normal cycle button, and then repeat once. You should see all of the lights come on for a second or two, and then the dishwasher will work again.
If you haven't already, take a look under the kick plate in front to see if there is a schematic tucked in there somewhere. Whirlpool has put their diagnostics for specific models on these.
I don't have the specific repair manual for you model.
So, if the above combination does not work here are two more that have worked for me.

HiTemp Wash + Air Dry + HiTemp Wash + Air Dry in less than 5 sec
or
Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry + Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry in less than 5 sec



Let me know, if you need further assistance.


Hope i helped you.


Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
