Re: dishwasher

What brand is it? go to that web site put in model number and download it there. also you might have the controls locked press and hold the heated dry button for three seconds to see if that unlocks the controlls.

'low rinse' stuck on with full rinse aid, can't start wash cycle

Actually, if you look closely at that Low Rinse button or emblem, you will see a little lock symbol above the words "Low Rinse", and I'll bet THAT light is the one that is on. Basically, you have the control lock (or child-lock) turned on. To turn it off, you have to press and hold the Sanitize button for 3 to 5 seconds until that light goes off. Now your dishwasher will work!

We have a whirlpool ADG 7800 dishwasher ,getting a beeping sound and start button flashes 12 times? Any help

Ok try this and see what happens.
Hold the start button again till it beeps
Then select the first cycle on the left which should be the rinse cycle
Then turn the dishwasher off
Then press and hold the start button and with this held in turn the dishwasher on.
Once the start light is flashing let go
Now press the start button once and close the door.
Now it will run a 12 minute test cycle. If it goes wrong it will drain the water out and beep. So open the door and count the number of flashes from the start light inbetween the pause and let me know.

Won't turn on

Try just pressing the selection pad, without pressing start/cancel and close the door. That has worked for me a couple of times.

My dishwasher will not start. The 3 second button light is on and when I press it nothing happens . I try pressing any other button and nothing works

It sounds like you have "locked" the dishwasher. This was an added feature that most people never wanted since it only seems to be set by accident.

Try pressing the 3 second button and holding it down for at least three seconds. This should turn the light off. Drove us nuts the first time it happened. If it doesn't turn off then I guess it is broken.

My dishwasher doesnt start

1) Ensure the dishwasher is turned off. 2) (may not apply) Turn the plastic blue lever located under the sink to the vertical position (this opens the valve, so water can go into the dishwasher) 3) Pour powder indo the dishwasher 4) Turn the dishwasher controller to the top position (the 12 o?clock position) ? this is the eco-setting. 5) Press the on/power button on the dishwasher, so that it now turned on (a light will display) 6) Move the dishwasher controller to the ?R? position (it?s on the very left), and leave it there a second or two. 7) Move the dishwasher controller back to the eco-setting (the 12 o?clock position

My whirlpool gold dishwasher GU180 wont start

I had the same problem with the exact same model - put your washer on the lowest wash setting - press and hold the start button for about 3 seconds. THe washer will run for about 5 seconds and then turn off (do not have the heated dry setting on when you do this).

Turn it off (turn the dial), and then try to re-wash.
