Question about Whirlpool 24 in. ADP6940 Dishwasher
Hi we have a adp951 dishwasher, wont turn on. Power all ok, door shuts ok, no lights come on at all when turning dial. do they have a fuse inside or any other ideas. thanks Malcolm
Ok with your dishwasher here's the most common things that are most likely stopping it from powering up, check the main power supply box, the latch switch could be bad or the motor ok now......you will need a VOM (volt-ohm meter) to check certain parts. Remember, when checking parts, the power to the dishwasher is always off, unless state otherwise, It's also helpful to keep a notebook nearby to record how things go back together.
ok.... check the power at the source. Make sure the breaker is on. If it is, then check the power at the dishwasher. If it's hardwired, go back and turn the breaker off. You will have to open the dishwasher door, unscrew the screws holding it in place underneath the countertop and shimmy the unit out. The junction box is located at the rear, on the bottom. Open the junction box and check the wires for corrosion, breaks, or loose connections. Check the interior of the box for any burn or "arc" marks. If everything is clear, turn the power back on and check for voltage by probing the black and white wires. If you get no voltage, the breaker may be bad.
If this isn't the problem, then here's a few other things to check:

Have a look underneath dishwasher by removing front bottom access panel, the one touching the floor. Look for a round plastic disc about size of 4 jam lids together, centre front of dishwasher. Inside of it is a foam disc that will float up off the base of the dishwasher if water causes it to do so. This floating up will trip a switch. Clean base of dishwasher of water and maybe test the switch with multimeter. Reset fault by holding down start button.
