Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher Model GU2400XTP

I started a cycle on my dishwasher and went to work outside and when I came in my dishwasher had stopped. There were no lights on and all the water had not drained out of it. The dishes were clean however. I could still feel heat I guess from the water. Now it acts like it has no power, and I have checked the breaker, whenever you press a button nothing happens and I can't get it to finish draining. Please help.

    Thanks jsrock516, I found the fuse but can you tell me how to get the darn thing off. It's in a awkward place that is hard to get ahold of. For some reason I do not have a tech sheet inside the kick panel.

    Thank you

There should be a thermal fuse located inside the console on the control board. Most dishwashers have them mounted this way. It's a white square plastic piece, or silver component with two wires connected to it. If the thermal fuse is bad it will give the same symptoms you are describing. To check, you need to turn off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher and remove the screws holding the console in place. This should be the four or five screws at the top of the door (with the door open). Carefully lift the console off the door (support the wires) and flip it over so you can see the control board. The thermal fuse should be mounted somewhere on the control board. The fuse will read a SHORT if good, an OPEN if bad. The fuse is not resettable (meaning you can't reuse it) and must be replaced. If you need further assistance let me know. I hope this helps you. PS There should be a tech sheet located inside the lower kick panel under the door. This includes all the schematics and troubleshooting tips. You may use this as a reference too.

    Kinda hard to tell without seeing it, as all dishwashers aren't manufactured the same. However, most that I am familiar with are attached to the control board by a plastic tab. If you take a small flat blade screwdriver you can slide it under the tab that is clipped to the side of the control board and lift slightly. The thermal fuse should come off fairly easy. Let me know if this helps.

We have the Whirlpool Gold quiet partner III dishwasher and lately have noticed residue on the dishes after the cleaning cycle is complete. Where is the trap to clean?


Make sure your water is hot, at least 120deg f. Also, use least amount of soap you can get away with. Usually around 2 tablespoons for soft water. Use powdered soap not gel. Gel leaves a tiny residue each load and will clog up plumbing in dw after 4,5,or 6 years. Rinse agent such as Jet Dry is highly recommended.

Try the "Tang" trick. Orange Tang drink mix is mildly acidic. With an empty dishwasher, start and fill, then normal drain. On second fill, add a full jar of Tang then let the dishwasher run for a few minutes. Crack the door to stop the dishwasher and let it sit for several hours or overnight. Then close the door, push start and let the dw run through the remaining cycle. This will sometimes clean out the crud in the water lines.

Hope this helps! Ken

My dishwasher model adp 941 won't start - start led flashes


exactly the same problem today with an AD9520

Don't know the cause but from reading other posts re dishwasher problems I tried holding start but on for 5 - 10 seconds and it seemed to clear the symptoms at least. It ran for a short while and stopped but the flashing had stopped and I could start a wash cycle which is now running!

Problems with Whirlpool dishwasher model GU1500XTKB0


will these units (silo and jtrip) start back on their own? if so, it is likely they are heating the water.
otherwise it sounds like a logic board, unless there is a defective door switch or sensor issue.
electronics seem to be a recurring problem with whirlpool.
i would ask whirlpool (electorlux) to either buy it back or fix it.
good luck
