Hi, Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water. To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.
Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

Dishwasher will not start cycle.


OK so you have power, your door interlock switch is working, the intake solenoid is operating.

The issue is that the cycle does not start. This would indicate that your timer is not advancing. The timer tells the machine what to do, when, and for how long. It is not advancing and is stuck at the start of the wash cycle (fill with water). This is not a big issue as a timer is usually easy to replace.

I don't know what type of machine you have so I don't know if is a mechanical or a digital timer.

If mechanical dial type you can simply tun the dial and see if the cycles change. If so for sure you timer is the issue. You simply remove and replace.

Digital is harder to check but from what you say it is most likely your timer.

Shut the breaker off.

Remove the screws from the door frame and from inside the door. Gently remove the control panel. The timer is a simple unit to remove. Unscrew it and disconnect the power supply. Go get a new one from your local parts supplier. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Hope this helps, if so please rate this answer.

Whirpool diswasher DU929PFGG2 wont draw water


The pump may be clogged or the motor start capacitor may be bad or the fill switch may be stuck or the timer may be bad. Fill the dishwasher by hand to just below the door level and close it then see if it will run. If it then runs correctly the problem may be the fill switch. If not, it could be the motor, the cap, or the timer

Washer will not start up


check the manual. it sounds like a warning that would be in the troubleshooting section at the back.
usually the motor comes on to discharge any remaining water that could have been left in the bottom, then it fills. if it never gets to fill, then the problem is likely the pump motor unit. especially if you hear it try to run, but then it stops. it could be the fill valve too. if it runs to drain and then trys to fill but the valve does not open, it will not run.
it could also be a timer or capacitor.
good luck
