Question about Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher
Once use the washer was working fine then went to use it again, and nothing. No lights no sounds nothing works. I checked the breaker at my electrical pannel and it checks out ok. Any suggestions?
I had a similar problem. So I bought a new computer for it. It didn't fix the problem. It turned out to be the button pannel. With all of moisture surrounding it steam go into the buttons and caused all kinds of faulse info that the computer could not interpt. Had to buy new button pannel and problem was fixed.

Ifixall is correct. I also learned several things with the apartment buildings I maintain.
1. the screen or pump trap must also be cleaned regularly to make sure there is no debris, food etc stuck in there.
2. The spray arms must be free of debris or obstructions.
3. Jet dry solution must be filled or has some solution in it.
4. Water must be hot
5. Scraping dishes and prewash them before putting them into dishwasher.
6 install water softner sometimes helps. (I don't know how true this is, since I am unable to do this in our buildings)
7 drain line must be picked up, or secured to prevent backwash.
8. MAKE sure that the lower rack is not obstructing the sprayer arms. Sometimes overloading dishwashers will cause dishes not being cleaned properly.
9. if all else fails, a service technician can come out to determine if the dishwasher is operating properly.

SOURCE: lock light will not go off
what you have to do is push and hold, i believe, the air/heat dry button for 5 seconds and that should change the control from lock to unlocked.
look for a "lock" symbol under the button and thats the one that you have to hold in on.
it may not be the air dry button but there will be one that does have the symbol.

now you'll be able too hear under the tub if motor bearing was the noise.put a long tool to the motor and close to you ear,see if that gives you a clue[i don't want you to give up on it if its not the motor]if was to buy that motor wholesale it would be around 50 bucks or so ,retail about 100 or so.so if replacing depends on the shape of the rest of the unit.[i have sold and installed many]new dishwasher on sale 300$ or so,plus your time to install.but if new its a forsure thing.so depends how much motor,how sure you are wiill solve problem,what shape unit in.hope that helps. God bless ,tom

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.
