Whirlpool Dishwasher acting as if there is no power to it

The dishwasher stopped running during a cycle and acts as if there is no power. I already checked the CB and the power cables in the circut box of the dishwasher and there is power to it. I have also shorted out each on of the switched on the handle and they both seem to be operating correctly. Any Ideas

Re: Whirlpool Dishwasher acting as if there is no power...

I had this problem just two days ago. For me it was the thermal fuse. On my dishwasher it is located on the main control board, at the top. It is white and has two wires going into to separate terminals. It says "Microtemp" on it. I used a small wire to short it and see if that was the case. Be careful though. There is also another fuse on the bottom of the dishwasher that looks like a little black cylinder with a silver cap, and two terminals coming out of it for wires. In our case that fuse was fine.

Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

I have a whirlpool gu2400 dishwasher. The spring loaded soap dispenser door does not open during the wash cycle to release the soap.

Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor or a solinoid to release the door at a specific time during the cycle. So for proper cleaning the soap cup is nessesary . The part isn't that expensive and fairly simple repair.

Check the sensor of the liquid at the bottom of the dishwasher. Sometimes that is the cause of the fault.

Bosch dishwasher shx55m with bottom tub full of water

The dishwasher really shouldn't pass any particles near large enough to clog the drain hose. It sounds more like a mechanical issue. Check the circuit breaker to make sure it's not tripped. See if you can hit a cancel button or something to make it drain. Try to run another cycle. If the computer is stuck or acting funny, trying cutting the power for a while, holding down a stop/reset/cancel button, or running a cycle that you don't usually run. I had this kitchenaid that would randomly refuse the normal wash cycle, but would run fine when you ran rinse only or something, then regular wash and everything would be fine again too. If the line somehow is clogged, there's a good chance it's right where the hose connects to the disposal or drain pipe.

Cycles won't run

dc, sounds more like a shorted interface, a shorted keypad will act like this. There should be a tech sheet behind the toe panel on the bottom. It should have instructions on how to test the keypad and put the unit into the test cycle. back.
