SOURCE: Water Sitting In Dishwasher after Completion of Cycle

An obstruction in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off properly. You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! In case cleaning will not help, you should replace the valve. Good luck !

SOURCE: whirlpool dishwasher drainage problem..

This sounds like a bad timer. The timer is what tells the pump to drain at specified times. If it gets a bad contact, that timed cycle won't happen.

PS: Do you know for sure that the drain is occurring in mid-cycle? If not, you may just have an obstruction in the drain and/or anti-siphon valve (where the hose connects under the dishwasher.

SOURCE: Not starting wash cycle

Typically this means that there has been a water leak of some sort and there is water in the lower base pan. This is the large white plastic base that the dishwasher sits on.

If you remove the toe kick and look back past the fill valve on the extreme left side of the dishwasher about 6 to 8 inches from the front you will see a red stick that goes straight up and down. This is a mechanical linkage that activates the drain feature. Be careful as there are live connections here.

This stick rests on a round piece of Styrofoam that acts as a float. If there is water present it will cause the stick to lift and the dishwasher will go into drain. The source of the leak will have to be isolated and corrected. Most likely it is the fill float assembly as referenced at the end of this post.

If the stick is not in the upright position then there is possibly an issue with the switch mechanism itself.

You will have to pull the dishwasher out from beneath the cabinet and remove the panel covering the left hand side. If it is a full panel then there are a couple of screws holding it on from the front through side trim as viewed when the door is open if it is a half panel then it can be removed by removing the large torx screw on the lower right as seen when facing the panel.

If there is a problem with the switch then the entire mechanism should be replaced.

Try the following link to a picture for reference. It is upside down as compared to the installed one:

Hi, if the motor is working then the spring arms are blocked. Pull them out and rinse them on the sink, then put them back on. Simple

My Whirlpool dishwasher is stuck on the clean cycle?


If it continues to run without any alarms or flashing light, I would assume the heater is packed up. It is looking for the water to reach the correct wash temperature.

Try to run on the cold water cycles and see if there is any difference.

Du1055xtsd2 whirlpool dishwasher runs but doesn't fill with water doesnt cycle


A few things could be wrong.

It can't cycle without water. be sure you have water at the valve under the dishwasher. You should be able to see it by dropping the front plate under the DW.

If you have water pressure, then check for voltage (120) at the valve with the timer calling for water. ( start of cycle).

If you have voltage and pressure, replace the valve.

If you don't have voltage, it could be the little switch inside the DW. It pulls up and down. The level switch could be bad.

If that doesn't do it, it may be the timer or the door lock interface.

Good luck.

Water standing in tub


If there is a lot of water sitting inside the applicance, it's possible that the high water float switch has been activated and is preventing the dishwasher from running. Open the door, remove the bottom rack, dip as much water out of the bottom as possible with a shallow ladle or even tupperware container. When that is accomplished, shut the door and try to run a drain cycle. If the unit won't start, you may have to remove more water. You don't have to have the rack in place to run the drain cycle.

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.

Whirlpool Dishwasher won't drain during normal cycle


As you say a clogged line or valve does not make sense.

Try running it without the heated drying and see if it empties or if the cancel button will work then.

The dishes should air dry quickly if you empty it and open the door.

It could be a defective thermostat allowing it to get too hot during the heat cycle

The washing cycle takes 2 hours to complete


Make sure the sani cycle is not selected, or pots and pans, also with the dry cycle most will take about 2 hours, if your dishes are not that dirty use the short cycle. Be sure your water is at least 130 F. Run hot water at faucet before starting the machine.
