Question about Whirlpool 24 in. ADP5966 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher has stopped partway through cycle, not pumped out

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.

Whirlpool gu1200xtls2 wont drain just stopped


Hello

your Whirlpool dishwasher stopped draining mid-cycle, check your circuit breaker or fuses. The cycle won't complete if the power is interrupted. Reset the circuit breaker if tripped, or change out any blown fuses. Fully close the dishwasher door, and restart the cycle if you opened up the door. If you have not used the dishwasher in a while, the motor may be stuck. Open up the main housing, and rotate the motor until it turns freely. You must replace the motor if it's corroded or won't move since it's unlikely that you can fix it.

Pump

The pump is located underneath the lower rack and spray arm. This component is responsible for pumping water out of the dishwasher once the cycle is complete. If the pump isn't working, verify that it is not clogged with debris. Use a toothpick or plastic utensil to remove food particles from it. Check the pump impeller. If a section of it is broken, get a new pump since the impeller is difficult to fix.

Clogs

Clogs in the air gap or drainage hose prevent water from leaving the tub. Clean these components and the water inlet filters, if dirty. Examine the drainage hose, and straighten it if it's kinked. If the hose is badly crushed, you must replace it. Unscrew the drainage hose from the dishwasher to clean it, but reattach it before you restart the cycle. Run the food waste disposer if it's connected to your Whirlpool dishwasher. Remove the knockout plug from the disposer if you have just installed the disposer or dishwasher.

Drain Valve/High Drain Loop

Whirlpool dishwashers have drain valves with an internal solenoid. This valve opens and closes to drain water out of the tub. If the drain valve is stuck, lubricate the lever, and remove any debris clogging the valve. Remove any objects that are preventing the drain valve from freely opening and closing. If the valve is not working properly, you must replace it. Always install a high drain loop to prevent water from the sink entering your dishwasher. Create a loop of the drainage hose that is at least 18 inches high. Attach this hose beneath a section of cabinetry.

Anyone got an answer to this, as I have exactly the same fault.

Dishwasher appears to switch on OK, then after a short time (20 secs?) the pump noise stops and the green light flashes - it seems to e a sequence of 7 flashes, then stop... 7 flashed then stop.

The sequence could indicate a fault detected?

Anyone know anything about these units from IKEA, made by Whirlpool?

Thanks!

Whirlpool dishwasher has food particles baked on.


Heating element may fail. This will lead to the machine stopping part way through its cycle

Pumps. There are 2 pumps in most dishwashers. The drain pump,( which describes itself -it pumps the water out of the machine.)
The recirculating pump which forces the water at high pressure through the spray nozzles and arms. (This is how the cleaning action is performed)
These pump may either leak, or burn out. Either way, the only solution is replacement.

Sounds like a bad pump. If it drains the water and doesn't deliver at arms the pump is more than likely bad. First of all pull the water supply line off and see if there is build up from hard water on the in-line screen (if present), then If you are mechanically inclined you should pull the pump/motor and remove housing to check for any obstructions and or build-up if you have hard water.

Whirlpool gu2200 dishwasher, the detergent


Either:

1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.

Good luck,

Dishwasher starts running for 2 minutes then stops


The first 2 minutes of the cycle is a pump out cycle followed by a brief pause then a water fill cycle.Make sure the water is getting to the water valve underneath. Check the water valve for power with a volt meter just after the pump out cycle. No power= bad timer or bad wire. Power = a bad water valve or no water present.

You will have to check all the connections visually. Since you know how to use a meter, see where the current stops. See if there is current coming from the control board to the pump. the water inlet solenoid valve should "free flow" water into the machine. the pump recirculates the water for the wash and rinse cycles and pumps the water out of the machine to the drain. It is more likely that that water inlet solenoid valve is where the problem is.
