Question about Whirlpool 24 in. ADP5966 Free-standing Dishwasher
Whirlpool Dishwasher has stopped pumping the water out. It has done this years ago, and the repairmen advised that there is a moisture sensor underneath the machine which stops when it senses moisture under the machine. It is a very sensitive sensor and we had to change brand of washing poweder and rinse as the other one triggered this sensor, even though the machine was not leaking. There is a re-set button under the machine which the tradesman re-sets, and then the machine operates.
This time, as previously the machine is not leaking, and it will take several days to get a tradesman. If it is the pump that is okay, I will wait the distance. But I would like to find the button and reset it to see if I need to wait the 5 - 10 days for the repairman.
the machine is a Whirlpool ADP 5550, free standing (not on your list) with a knob on the left side. No computer programme options for cycles, just the knob.
In the meantime I will start bucketing the water out of the machine. :-)
Thanks for your help
Not a moisture sensor, a water depth sensor to gauge fill level. Not the problem here. There is a solenoid valve under the machine. It routes the water either to the wash arms or to the drain. It is likely jammed so that it will not open to drain the water. Often, these items can be disassembled and cleaned. Just shut the power before going in there. If the valve can't be cleaned or the coil is bad, it will need replacement.
