Question about Whirlpool 24 in. ADP5962 Free-standing Dishwasher
The water is not heating up so the dishwasher is not moving through the program. I know there is a reset switch underneath but I can't find it.
Well, the other poster is wrong, some models do heat, the Kenmore Ultrawash (which is made by Whirlpool for Sears) keeps the water in the cycle while it "senses" it's temperature and cleanliness. It will stop the timing cycle while it heats the water to the preferred temp. If your dishwasher is like this model and does not cycle through, then most likely it is the thermal fuse. If not, it could be the heating element.
There is at least one on all models, sometimes more, but for most it is located in the door near, or on the motherboard. Very easy to swap out and probably less than $25. You'll need to kill the power before attempting any service. Take the door panel off from the inside, unplug the fuse and install the new one. Presto!

No dishwasher heats up the wash water, even the commercial ones rely on an external heater. The coil that's in the bottom is for drying the dishes only! There is no reset on the machine. Try resetting the circuit breaker if it's hard wired.

If clean light is blinking then it may be an
issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to
the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error.
If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing
this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air
Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub,
energy saver dry or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated Dry.
Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button
and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue
with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to
lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and
is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a
multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on
Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum
and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you
need more information.
