Question about Whirlpool SUD6000HQ Dishwasher

1 Answer

Has power all the way past the latch, but cycle selection buttons dont respond

We found the dishwasher in the morning (we use the delay at night before we go to bed) with water still in the bottom. The dishes were clean and rinsed (no soapy film). I tried to use the cycle selection buttons to get it to drain but they didn't work, at all, like it didn't have power. I checked the GFCI the dishwasher's plugged into with a volt meter and got 120V and the interupter is working properly. I open the bottom panel and the junction box and got 120V there. I took the door appart and was able to get 120V past the latch switch. That's as far is I got. Any ideas?
Thanks for any help,
Nelson

Hi nipdoes2,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You followed the power as far as the door switch.

If you follow it past the door switch you'll find a bad control board. The power goes in but it doesn't come out. It's an integrated circuit so it must be replaced. Check with the manufacturer for the part.

Feel free contact me again!

Dishwasher took 3 hours to complete cycle


If you have set the unit to heated water or your hot water is not hot will delay the wash cycle. The heater in the dishwasher is very slow!
The following is from the user manual.
15
TROUBLESHOOTING
First try the solutions suggested here and possibly avoid
the cost of a service call...
Dishwasher is not operating properly
Dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle
Is the door closed tightly and latched?
Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the "Cycle Selection
Charts."
Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown or circuit breaker tripped?
Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
Is the water shut-off valve (if installed) turned on?
Dishwasher will not fill
Is the overfill protection float able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.
Dishwasher seems to run too long
Is the water supplied to the dishwasher hot enough? The
dishwasher runs longer while heating water. Refer to the
"Dishwasher Efficiency Tips" section.
A delay automatically occurs in some wash and rinse cycles
until the water reaches the proper temperatur

Hope this helps?

My maytag dishwasher dosnt work. the delay light 2,4,6 lights just blinks. I would like to know the reset code to see if i can do a cycle run.


I pressed heavy wash 3 times and then start to make it perform a field test. It tested fine, but it stuck at 61 minutes for an hour while I was testing auto clean. Another thread indicated that the controller cable interface was getting moist.

Dishwasher will start on delay start but won't start with start button


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FBD1050REC, will start on delay start but not just by pressing the start button. Please try resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Start button not working


Good Morning Friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire dishwasher has power but will not start a cycle. Let's try resetting your dishwasher by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is best to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on your dishwasher. Confirm that the door is securely closed and select a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, faulty door latch assembly or control board. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your dishwasher to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Best regards! - Z

Whirlpool Gold Quiet Wash Plus quit working and no lights come on now


The first thing I would check is the latch. If it is not engaging properly then nothing will work. It is simple to check. Set it to run. Open the door a little and take a flat screwdriver & press the inside part of the switch in. It is like a button. You my get a little wet but you may find the problem. The latch can get out of whack. If it is one that has adjustments on it then loosen screws and adjust to make it seal the door tighter. a few models you have to bend the latch to adjust. I hope this helps.

My kenmore dishwasher wont start at all now. It used to start if you pushed certain buttons a bunch of times but now the lights next to most of the buttons light up but it wont start a cycle. any ideas?


Hello

Ensure that the dishwasher is connected to a working power supply. Check the local fuse or circuit breaker and restart as necessary.

Open and shut the door firmly until it latches into place. The dishwasher will not function if the door is not latched into position.

Select the desired cycle and press the cycle button firmly, as you must choose a cycle in order for the dishwasher to begin operation.

Look at the water valve that is connected to the dishwasher and ensure it is turned on.

Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from the power supply to reset the unit. Plug it back in and select a new cycle. Select "Start." If the dishwasher still does not start, contact an authorized service technician.

Dishwasher ran all night still not finished. Error code 4H displaying.


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The 4H is indicating your dishwasher is in the delayed wash start mode. Here is some information from Sears about what to do:


  • The number letter combination indicates that the dishwasher is in a "Delay Start" mode, as well as how many hours were set for the delay start.
  • The dishwasher will not start the wash until it reaches the delayed hour that it was set for. Example: 1H = 1 hour delay start, 2H = 2 hour delay start, etc.
    • To start the dishwasher immediately and not wait for the Delay Start time, cancel the "Delay Start" option, by pressing the Cancel button. Then program the cycle and options and press Start.
    • To start the dishwasher after the Delay time, select the cycle and options desired. Select the "Delay Start" option and on some dishwashers it requires, pressing the Start button.
    • Some dishwashers will display a countdown of the delay time on the display.
Note: Refer to the Owner's Manual or Use & Care Guide for specific instructions on using the "Delay Start" feature.

If you need more assistance we will need your exact model number in any of your future responses.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Water is not coming into my Maytag dishwasher.


Hi,
Is the door open or unlatched?Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons or utensils), that may be interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure. The lights for cycles selected will flash if the door is opened while running a cycle.
Is there power to the dishwasher?Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.
Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob?The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.
Is the control lock option activated?
The indicator light next to the lock graphic will illuminate when the controls are locked. Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for three seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.
Is the delay start option activated?To cancel the delay and cycle, press Start/Cancel twice.
Is the water shutoff valve turned on?Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.

Clean light flashes constanly. Won't clear out to start new cycle


If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

My Maytag NDB9601 will not start any cycle. You can select the cycle and the display will show the time, but the start and delay buttons, located on the front, not the top with the cycle buttons, will not...


Sounds like a possible door switch problem.

If you take that area of the door apart, check the ribbon cable for keypad. You can clean the connector with a pencil eraser.
