Hi, we have a Whirlpool - how-to-repair-a-dishwasher-1.jpgOn many dishwashers, the latch engages a switch to activate the timer and other control components. If the latch is not completely engaged or if the switch is faulty, the machine will not operate. Here's how to test and repair a door switch:Step 1: Latch the door and hold the latch tightly in the closed position. This works best on a unit with a lever-type latch. Then turn the control to the ON position. If the unit works, the problem is probably a misaligned lock unit. Adjust the lock unit with a screwdriver. If this doesn't solve the problem, the switch may be faulty.Step 2: Test the switch with a volt-ohm-milliammeter (VOM) set to the RX1 scale. Remove the panel covering the door switch and remove one of the electrical lead wires of the switch from its terminals. Clip one probe of the VOM to each switch terminal and shut the dishwasher's door. If the meter reads zero, the switch is working. If the meter reads higher than zero, the switch is faulty and should be replaced.Step 3: Replace the switch with a new one of the same type. Connect the new switch the same way the old one was connected.

    Hi, on my WAE8987 Washing machine, the fault code 'F07' keeps coming up, can anyone help please? thanks


    Bauknecht are built by Whirlpool.
    F7 on Whirlpool means flow meter failure.
    Check water inlet, check the pressure switch, and check the sump filter at the bottom of the dishwasher.
    To reset try turning on the power and holding the start button and the + and - buttons at the same time.

    How do i reset the dishwasher when light is flshing but not run


    Hi

    To reset the Dishwasher when the light is flashing press in sequence normal wash, heat dry, normal wash, heat dry, normal wash, heat dry three times within 6 sec all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that D/W does not heat its own water your incoming water temp should be 120. The D/W will maintain that temp. When starting your D/W first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your D/W this insures your unit fills with hot water and not cold.

    Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


    Thanks

    HI, this is a control fault and you can confirm failure by shutting off the breaker switch or unplugging for 5 minutes. if the unit continues to malfunction after the 5 minute reset, you will need to replace the electronic control board.

    Whirlpool Dishwasher power surge results in flashing clean button


    I'm not sure what the sequence would be on your particular model as Whirlpool dishwashers can differ in operaiton. However, if you remove the lower kick panel under the dishwasher door, there should be a tech sheet either directly behind the panel, or tucked inside the door. The tech sheet will list all troubleshooting tips and any fault codes that the owner/operator's manual does not list. This is the SAME sheet the repairman will reference when they come to your home on a service call. Please let me know if you still require assistance. I hope this helps you.

    Whirlpool dishwasher not working


    igsanders.. that is a heater fault code. toggle between heated dry and normal until all light light up . press cancel. now ensure door closes without striking cabinet and the unit is level. this fault normally has nothing to do with the heater but rather the nuetral to the door switch which it shares with the heater.it will now operate again.
