Whirlpool dishwasher GU2455

Has power, certain lights come on but nothing happens. The time remaining display does not show numbers, just a slash. The cancel/drain will run for a short period, but does nothing. The pots/pans option will make a noise for a very short period, but nothing happens. It is the only option that does anything and there are no lights. All lights on the cycles light up except soak/scrub. No water enters tub. Suggestion?

Try this solution first
Push the Hi-temp and then push the Sani-rinse. Go back and forth multiple times on these two buttons. I found that after a handfull of pushes that a "1" came up on the display. I continued to keep rotating the two buttons and then a "2" came up on the display and the dishwater started it's "drain" phase. I then hit cancel to clear and then I selected the cycle I wanted. The washer started up just as normal at this point.

SOURCE: Whirlpool dishwasher will not start

There is a small replacable part on the control panel circuit board which is like a fuse. It actually is a temperature fuse and it blows when the environment gets too hot for the circuit board. Unplug the dishwasher and take the door apart so you can see the circuit board. If you trace the power wires one of them leads to a little white module with 2 electrical tabs. Unplug the 2 wires and unsnap the module. You can check it with an ohm meter. IF its good the meter will register almost a short. f it's bad it will be open. The parts place I went to didn't even need a model number and he says he goes through a lot of them.

SOURCE: 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

No lights on whirlpool quiet partner ii -- is it dead?


The main board sends power to the display lights. Check with a multimeter for voltage coming out of the main board to the display board. If no voltage the main board is bad or the fuse is bad.

My Whirlpool GU2455 dishwasher door stopping latching all of a sudden. I press the Start button. It just blinks and nothing starts up. Seems like the door latch lost its grip and hangs loose when you touch...


the door latch actually has usually 2 microswitches on it that connect to the timing device ie: timer or control board:: if the door is not latching properly then it will not power the control board and the blinking light is a failt code telling you that... it sounds like the door latch is broke and needs replaced... i would order a new latch very easy to replace. you remove the inner door panel of the dishwasher and then will see the door latch mechanism made of plastic of course isint everything these days.... replace it and reconnect the wires ...obviously i would suggest turning your breaker off to dishwasher prior to operating on it....a few good reputable sites to order parts from

Dishwasher cycle runs until 63 minutes remaining then times out


perhaps the water is not getting hot enough and the machine is waiting for this. test the heater.

I have a whirlpool quiet cycle III that won't start


Check the whirlpool web site. There is a link to see if yours is affected, click that and answer a couple of questions then if will ask for the serial number and then the model number, which are located on the inside wall of the washer. When you submit these numbers it will tell you if yours is recalled which is probably the cause of your problems as well. Since mine was doing something similar and it is one of the washers on recall for a bad motor.

Long washing cycle


sounds like a long time. sounds like it will wear out your dishes before it ever cleans them.
check the manual for cycle times.
could be a bad logic board, too. this happens most often when units are new.
talk to the service center for the unit since its new. they will be able to get right to the problem or send a repairman under warranty.
new units do fail.
good luck
