Re: Whirlpool Dishwasher model gu980scgq3
I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
Your question is: Will not start, seems to have no power at all. You checked the breaker and it's fine. Is there a reset button somewhere on this dishwasher ?

No reset, if breaker is good then check the connection at the d/w. It's under the d/w behind the kick plate on right or center under a cover box. 9 times out of 10 you'll find a loose, broken or burnt connection there. That done, it's time to call in warranty repair. If beyond warranty you might consider utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repairman. If the d/w has a few years on it perhaps it is time to compare the cost of repair verses replacement.

My dishwasher just quit mid cycle. (still has water in it) It is a whirlpool partner 1. I checked the breaker and it wasn't tripped... but i reset it anyways. When I tried the dishwasher again it worked for a second and turned off. I have done reading about the thermo fuse but can't find it. Not sure how big of a problem this is.
Dishwasher is 5 years old.
I saw my repair man do the following, which you might try...
Open the door and simultaneously press & hold down the power button with the 2 buttons used on your model to "Cancel & Drain." If the unit comes on it now is in self-diagnosis mode. Release the buttons and close the door. The unit should start to fill with water. Press the power button to exit the mode.
Make sure you have power to the dishwasher, check circuit breaker. If circuit breaker is ok, then remove toe panel at bottom front of machine, on the right hand side is where the power cable goes into a little metal box. Turn off circuit breaker to kill power to the dishwasher, remove electrical box cover and check to make sure that the wire nuts are tight. Reapply power and test. If still no go then remove tech service sheet from toe panel insulation, get yourself a multi-meter and start test individual components until you find the one that is bad. Hope this helps.
