Re: p button stuck

The P button is a part of the control board. You should take apart the control board and see whether the P switch was just stuck and you can fix it or you should replace the unit. Good luck!

Our machine is frozen not responding to panel buttons

You can try resetting your dishwasher.

1. First, unplug the dishwasher power cord or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
2. Then, plug the dishwasher power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
3. After that, press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
4. Finally, start a short cycle, to check operation of the dishwasher, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the dishwasher starts.

Hotpoint slimeline 7801 dishwasher light comes on but wont start

When you say it won't start, do you mean a) the display is on and it won't respond, or b) it responds as it should, but after you hit the start button it doesn't go any further?

If it's b) make sure your water line is turned on. After you hit the start button it needs to make it's waterlevel setpoint to start the recirculation pump (thus shooting water everywhere). If it doesn't fill, then the washer doesn't know to go any further.

Dishwasher won't start and start button doesn't light, but other buttons respond

I think you still have warranty, it sounds you have faulty control panel, even if it's new does not mean it is good.

I have a quite partner 2 and it is stuck on the clean cycle and the light is blinking on and off. It will not work when I push any other buttons.

whirlpool dishwashers sense the water temperature in them the clean light flashing 7 times means either the heater element is not working or the water temperature going into the unit is to cold, start the water at the sink before starting the dishwasher now to get rid of the flashing light press the hi temp wash button and then the sani rinse button press one then the other over and over until all the lights come on it will then go in to a test mode when it completes the flashing light will go out that will solve your problem

Normal wash cycle constantly blinking no other buttons responding dishwasher wont start

one of 3 things is happening, either your "start" button is not funtioning, the door latch is not operating, so the uint doesnt recognize the door closing there fore wont operate, or the "normal" button is "stuck"( electronic switch possible shorted)

the fact that you cant get any other function out of it leads me to believe that you have a stuck button/shorted keypad. this is not available as a seperate part and requires replacing the "console with active overlay"

Dishwasher will not start

you can hold the start atop button down for 5 seconds to re set it or you can turn off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher for 20 sec. That should help. If not, it probably is a bad celenoid which a repairman needs to replace

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Problem

there is no real way of checking the keypad. Not with a meter but if you push normal wash for example and it does not respond this usually means that you have a bad keypad
