Question about Whirlpool DU850SWPB
F you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is sudsing too much. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.
Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment.
Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).
Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.
An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one. Rate...me

Thanks for using FixYa. If the cycle doesn't
complete, then the first thing that should be checked is the Timer and then the
heating element. Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the
dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in
one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault.
Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it. Many
dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the
cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled
with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What
happens next depends, as follows: On some units, the pause is timed and the
unit continues after the allotted time. On others, the cycle can't continue
until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of
dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the
heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it
never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle
problem" is fixed too. Please accept the solution if the
issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

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.
