Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1055XTP Built-in Dishwasher
I have the dishwasher listed on the subject line. Basically, the first time, my wife loaded the dishwasher, closed the door and went to hit start. No action and no power on the touchpad control panel. Circuit breaker - fine. Power to dishwasher - fine. So after shutting the dishwasher door hard, minor slamming, the power on the panel came back on. This seems to be the solution when it goes out. So is this a switch problem or a control board problem? Please advise. Thanks!
will these units (silo and jtrip) start back on their own? if so, it is likely they are heating the water.
otherwise it sounds like a logic board, unless there is a defective door switch or sensor issue.
electronics seem to be a recurring problem with whirlpool.
i would ask whirlpool (electorlux) to either buy it back or fix it.

I think I solved the door leaking problem by cleaning out the plastic filter screen on the inside (left) door panel. Didn't even know it was there, never knew it was suppose to be cleaned! It was so clogged and gross. I also discovered that my washer had shifted and was off balance. It has wood shims under the steel casing and one block was loose. No doubt from slamming and banging the door open and closed. Had to take the front skirt and kickplate off to see. I had my son use a lever and hoisted it up a little while I replaced the block shim now making the washer level again. Ran a light wash before fixing problems and it leaked. We ran a light wash after the fix's and so far so good. Haven't ran a regular longer wash yet. My water level was fine, no gasket problems, no washer wand cracks, etc... My husband was thrilled! When he came home, I informed him I have good news and not so good news. The not so good news was dinner was going to be late, the good news was I fixed the leaking (for months!)dishwasher and saved alot of money on repairs!
**Cleaned filter screen, made dishwasher level again.

If that didn't work. I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with my dishwasher right now, and I was looking for the product number on it. And when you open the door to the dishwasher, right on the inside on the top there is a sticker that tells you how to lock and unlock the buttons. On mine it says to hold down on the 'heated dry' button for 5 seconds.

It doesn't work at all
If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check
or selector switch
Power from the house
Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can
be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to
an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least
check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.
The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.
Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors. Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.
