Whirlpool Dishwasher will not start

My whirlpool gold dishwasher will not start. Model GU1500XTLS3 Only a few buttons on the control panel appear to work. Using the cancel button will cause the dishwasher to drain for two minutes and the air dry button can light up. All the other buttons appear to be unresponsive. This is the first time I have had this problem Thanks in advance

Contact appliance repairman,

sounds like either a control problem, or the is a problem with the solenoid that opens up to let water in the dishwasher at initial start.

The wash motor has probably froze up.

SOURCE: GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher

in the front left bottom of the tub is a float switch; it sometimes is under a cover with a screw securing it it looks like a big round ball shaped piece of plastic and on the bottom of this float there's a pin going down a hole in the tub (the float pin sits on the switch and, water lifting up and down on the float moves the switch: listen for a distinct "click" as you move the float up and, down
you see; the float rises as the water fills the dishwasher tub closing the float switch and, signaling the washer to start cleaning the dishes
some times dirt prevents movement of the float but,waiting usually displaces the dirt/soap etc. just enough to make it work again until the float pin gets encrusted again the cure is to clean the float pin

SOURCE: Whirlpool GU1500 dishwasher - no wash cycle buttons would turn on

I had the same issue. If you have a 1100,1200,1500 etc you have the first series of the dishwasher and there is a heat sensor issue. The dishwasher runs and checks if the water heats up by 8 degrees. If the water doesn't heat enough then the washer will trigger shut down (assuming that there is an issue somewhere in the water heating process could be a variety of things) Alas, it may only be a one time issue and yet the programming in the dishwasher defaults to a shut down where the normal consumer can't get the machine to run. DO THIS: remove the kick panel on the front of the washer. Behind that is a document with a series of buttons that you push to reset the machine's computer e.g. you might have to press 'saniwash' then airdry then Saniwash then airdry. The machine will start the reset process and may also go through a 'cancel' function. After that you should be back in business. They have fixed this issue on the new machines so that the 8 temp trigger has to fail three wash cycles in a row before the consumer lock out is activated. As for those who own the first series....we do lots of resets. P.S. I learned this AFTER I bought two new panels for my GU1500.
Good Luck

Turned on the 1 hr button and it did start but after a few minutes it stopped. None of the controls are lit and the water is just standing in the bottom. What do I do to get it started again?


If it fills with cold water, it will pause and try to heat the water... if there is no heater function, it will never achieve wash temperature.
To invoke the Diagnostics Cycle, perform the following while in standby:
? Press any 3 keys in the sequence 1-2-3-1-2-3-1-2-3 with no more than 1 second between key presses.
? The Service Diagnostics Cycle will start when the door is closed Whirlpool Dishwasher High Limit Thermostat WP661566 , Whirlpool Dishwasher Heating Element W10518394 , Whirlpool Dishwasher Control Board W10751502

Whirlpool Gold quiet washplus dishwasher Red Light staying on--control locked Cannot get it to run, no buttons will do anything


Which model dishwasher do you have? The Control Lock is a feature that keeps a child from starting the dishwasher when it shouldn't run. The Cancel button will work but not the Start button.

On the DU920QWD, to toggle the Control Lock off, press and hold Air Dry for 5 or more seconds. (Holding it again will turn on the lock.) Most dishwashers will have a the Control Lock key labeled with text in a small font for how to enable the Lock. The direct link to the DU920QWDB4 manual is https://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%203376817.pdf .

For other Whirlpool dishwashers, the Control Lock sequence will be listed in the manual. You can get a PDF of many Whirlpool appliance manuals from http://www.whirlpool.com/owners-center/owners-center-homepage.content.html . Enter the model number (from the rim inside the unit) and click on the right arrow.

I hope this helps.

Whirlpool Gold Silent Partner IV Dishwasher - model Anyway, my PROBLEM is that the control panel isn't working!!! At all!!! Only the cancel button works... Do you have any solutions?


I think the problem here is there is water in the control panel. this can happen and short the other buttons out the cancel has its own circuit. I would recommend changing the control panel.
