    I have a Whirlpool Model # GU2500 dishwasher that is completely dead. It worked fine the last time that I used it and when I went to use it this time it will not do anything. The lights on the display will not even come on. Breaker has been checked to make sure it hadn't tripped and all of that is fine. What could be the problem?

Ensure the top tray connection to the water inlet is securely housed when the top tray is pushed back in and no cuttlery is trapped in the sealwhen the door is closed.

Hi generally if the door is not closed on a dishwasher all functions are disabled, This is for saftey. Hence this is a cut out switch operated by the door. Try holding the door shut and seeing if the functions come to life

All you can do is turn the power off at the power point, leave it for a few minutes and then switch the power back on.

After the dishes are done washing, you cannot shut off the washer by pushing on the drain off button on the touchpad.The touchpad is all cracked in front of the button

Warn out close sensor arm. Locate it on door and put a small sticky pad on it to push sensor switch a bit farther. If that works, the adjusting the sensor switch position may be necessary.

My Whirlpool DU1055XTSQ has stopped working. The

Check that the door switch is operating properly, open and close the door a few times, push in on the door with a good amount of force while trying to start the machine, the door switch will not let control power to the panel if it is not getting triggered, to let the processor know that the door is closed and it can start the cycle.

Good Luck !

The unit does not run at certain times. If you push on door or move a little it seems to start but seems to get worse. Any clues. Its like some times it turn right on, other times it won't. Thanks Mike

sounds as if the door switch is bad. this switch is activated when you close the door and lock it. The way the switch works is there is a protrouding peice of metal out of the dishwasher at the top where the latch secures. This metal pushes a lever inside the door itself. If you look at the door at the top where the latch is there is a small hole. If you were to take a small screwdriver and push that tab in at the hole the dishwasher will activate with the dorr open If it doesn't the switch is bad or if you have to wiggle the screwdriver to get the dishwasher to turn on the switch is bad. REMEMBER if the switch is pushed in and the dishwasher turns on the water will spray up at you so make sure you shut yhr door as much as possible and only activate the machine to test the switch. Once you pull the screwdriver out the machine will diengage. If the switch is bad remove the front panel of the door and you will see the swtch. Take the machines model and serial numbers to an appliance repair shop for replacement

Good luck on your repairs hope this helped\

Electronic controls

first thing to check is the door latch switches, and hte strike plate(metal tab protruding from the top of tub assy in which the door closes into, if bent up to high the door will not be recognizedas being closed. you can use a small screw driver nad push down on the top of hte latch( mimicking hte strike plate action) see if the switches indeed do trigger properly
