Whirlpool 6th sense dishwasher


Can you hear the wash pump running?
Most likely the main wash motor start capacitor is faulty and not able to run the motor.
On a whirlpool this part is mounted on the side of the motor and is about the size of a D battery. It will have 2 to 4 wires going to it. When you replace it, ensure that you use the correct mF rating. This will be printed on the old one, or your local appliance parts store will be able to tell you which one it needs by the model number.
Hope this helps.

Whirlpool Dishwasher won't run


If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:
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.

Door switch 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.

Burning smell in GU 2300 front panel


1) You must change the wire with the same diameter, and solder well or put some connector. 2) Test for some corroded contacts, and clean with special spray contact cleaner. 3) Retight, or resolder, or tight any connector very well. 4) You must shure the dishwahser is only 1 circuite, in other words, only this machine will be work, NOT OTHER, this can cause to recharge in amper the equipmet, and overload.5) Test the c. board, maybe is faulty. you must call to the service tech. There are probably some component failure that cause to hot melting the wires.

God bless you

Whirlpool quiet partner 1 won't drain all the way suddenly


Hello.

HERE ARE TOOLS NEEDED AND INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO SOLVE THE DRAINING PROBLEM BELOW.

(A) Clean cloth(s)
(B) Wrench (if necessary)

Whirlpool brand dishwashers come in black, brown, stainless steel or white finishes and a variety of sizes as well. Most Whirlpool dishwashers are energy efficient, and many have features such as a sanitizing rinse, enhanced sound effects, large capacity tubs and adjustable shelves and racks. However, none of these features will help users much if the dishwasher is not draining. While this issue may require professional repair, some troubleshooting steps may help determine if there is a relatively simple cause for the problem.

1 Verify that the Whirlpool dishwasher has not lost power due to a power failure or motor overload. Wait a few minutes to see if the motor automatically resets and resumes operation. Reset the circuit breaker or fuse if necessary.

2 Press or select "Start" to resume the cycle if the dishwasher was stopped mid-cycle. Choose a new drain cycle if necessary to remove excess water from the unit.

3 Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from power. Examine the connection between the dishwasher and the garbage disposer, usually located underneath the kitchen sink. Make sure the disposer knockout plug was taken out between the two.

4 Run the garbage disposer in the kitchen sink to remove potential blockages.

5 Remove objects that may be blocking the drain on the dishwasher. Clean out the drain hose at the rear of the dishwasher.

Thanks.

I have had a Haier Dishwaher ESD300 for about 2 years. It suddenly just stopped. None of the buttons will work. I have checked fuses etc. All of that is fine. Wondered what I could do to fix the problem.


My dishwasher had the exact same symptoms. The control panel was faulty. I discovered this by testing the connector with my multimeter, looking for the LED connections. When I wasn't able to find anything, I carefully peeled it off. (See picture.) I expect at least one of the traces underneath the nasty brown line is faulty, causing the control panel to not function. On the control board, I jumpered the first pin to the fifth pin from the bottom of the connector, as viewed with the Haier brand right-side up, and pots & pans started right up.

It looks like I can get a replacement control panel from Sears Parts Direct for $30.

Whirlpool Quiet Partner III will not drain


The drain pump motor is in line with the outlet pipe. First check if the outlet pipe is not blocked or obstructed. The motor can be tested by removing the 2 electrical push on connectors and connecting mains supply to the 2 terminals. If the motor spinns it indicates that the motor is OK and that the fault is then with the electronic switching circuit (not normaly a home repair). If the motor does not spin it indicates that the motor is open circuit and needs replacing. (easy job). You can also spin the motor small cooling fan by hand just to determine if it runs freely like it should and is not obstructed by dirt inside the water channel of the pump.

When the unit was running it quit the display went blank? is there a fuse somewhere, all i can find is a printed control panel. DU1055 model.


Does it function at all? If not it's prob not the fuseable link. I'd put money that you have a bad contriol (the circuit board has shorted). I have the same model. Mine shut down during a wash cycle - totally dead. It has power but doesn't function. The wiring diagram (located down on your kick plate) explains how to test various components. Two things you can do when the unit has power but is dead - Turn off the power to the unit. Open the door and unscrew the six screws that hold the top of the dishwasher together. The front top control will now be loose.On the backside there is a gray cover. push the tabs back and remove this cover - make sure the power is shut off at the breaker). Under the cover you will see your circuit board and a bunch of wires. There is a 14 pin connector that connects the circuit board to the key pad. push the tabs back and lift out the circuit board. carefully unplug the 14 pin connector and leave it unplugged. Put your circuit board back in and install the gray cover over the controls - leaving the 14 pin connector unhooked. install the six screws - basically putting the thing totally back together. Leave the dishwasher door open and turn the breaker (power) back on. Count to five and close the door. If you have a bad key pad your dishwasher drain motor will cut on and run for 2 min. If the control is bad (the circuit board) nothing will happen. The control is fairly easy to replace - costs around $122 bucks for parts. Hope this helps!
Oh yeah, if you want to check the fuseable link it's the round thing on the circuit board - has two black wires going into it. MAKE SURE the power is turned off at the breaker before you mess with this.

Water will not run in but it will still cycle through,


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side). Use the procedure below to confirm the damage. Replace the float switch if the valve test proves that the inlet assembly is ok.


To access the inlet valve remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel. The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it. One hose will lead from the valve to the pump/motor assembly in the center of the dishwasher. Check that the hoses are securely connected to the valve and that there are no kinks in the hoses which could restrict water flow. There are two wires (four, if it has two solenoids) connected to the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced. Use a continuity tester or multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. If your valve has two solenoids, test the second one in the same way as the first.

Still having water problems...


Be VERY careful that you do not generate a shock hazard by connecting the electrical wiring wrong. From the feed, the BLACK wire is HOT and the WHITE wire is NEUTRAL. DO NOT REVERSE these leads.

If the frame of the dishwasher is not grounded (which, from your description, I suspect that it's not), a VERY SERIOUS SHOCK HAZARD could result from wiring it up backward.

That said, the water valve is operated on AC current and thus could care less about polarity of the current coming into it. The fact that you reversed input polarity and it worked is purely coincidence. The fact that you opened the circuit when you made the switch may not be, but ALWAYS follow this convention: BLACK-TO-BLACK, WHITE-TO-WHITE, AND BARE TO GROUND. I can't emphasize this enough.

Although the ground and the neutral lead are ultimately connected to the same buss NEVER use the ground lead as a conductor. ALWAYS connect the white wire to the neutral (white) side of the circuit.

And PLEASE be sure that your neutral buss is well grounded from the breaker box. This could cause a VERY SERIOUS SHOCK HAZARD if it is not. Not to mention it could affect how any appliances and other devices connected to the circuit might work.
