Question about Dishwashers
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.

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

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.
