How can I reset my whirlpool DW100 dishwasher machine

How can I reset my whirlpool DW100 washing machine.
The machine stopped mid cycle with water in. We restared it and it emptied. We then tried to run a cycle and now when it starts it goes to pump out straight away. The start button flashes, in either groups of 2 or 6 flashes.
We have refilled the salt and rinse aid.

Can you let us know how to reset the machine.

It was purchased in Ikea about 13-14 months ago.
But is seldom used.

Processor board sound bad. May be a loose plug ( or corroded connection on the plug ) . Unplug the dish washer from the wall plug before servicing. The open the front panel to expose the panel control board. Unplug the panel plugs and inspect them to assure no corrotion is apparent. If you see corrotion, use a pencil erracer to clean all contact points on the board and clean the plug the best possible. Plug the dishwasher plug back in the wall and check the unit for proper operation. If the operation is not correct, replace the circuit board. I hope this helps

SOURCE: Washing machine fills in the water but does not start the wash cycle

The fact that it does not fill completely can be related to a problem with the water-level switch, that regulates the water level.

See from Repairclinic:
"This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch."

However, when it is only the switch the mashine usually completes the cycle, but with less water than normal.

A possibilty is that either the timer is faulty or there is a problem with the water supply.

Check that water is coming from water supply with regular pressure, and that hoses back there are not obstructed.

More likely you will have to replace the timer.

See again from Repairclinic:
"When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water."

  • You can find parts at the following websites, you need to input your model number. If the part is not listed contact them.

    SOURCE: Whirlpool Cabrio High Efficiency Top-Loading

    I called Whirlpool and went through the ringer with the customer sercive representative that told me there is not a recall on the model of Cabrio that I have... after she told me that Whirlpool new it was a common issue with that washer. I told her that I thought it was ridiculous that the company would not stand behind their product and asked to speak with a manager. The customer service rep returned to the phone (not the manager) and told me her manager said they would send the part to me free of charge but would not cover the tech coming to fix it. So a few days later I rec'd the part and took the top cover off the washer and replaced it myself - there are several wires that have to be disconnected and reconnected so I would not advise doing this yourself unless you are pretty handy with that type of thing. However, I did it myself and haven't had a problem since.

    My whirlpool washing machine wont stop filling with water after the wash cycle


    your post is vauge

    does it over flow
    you mean it wont stop the rinse cycle


    did you check it for a reset
    do a factory reset

    the machine will fill with water until the flow sensor and level has filled

    so check and clean the machine

    i find a couple of dishwasher cleaner tabs thru it first will clean all the flows and pipes and use a 60 deg long wash for whites
    i think all the electro is aok so must be dirt

    Dishwasher will not turn on,


    OK check Fuses/Breaker.
    Check there is actually power to the outlet, try another appliance in the actual outlet.
    Try this below...
    Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
    Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle.This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
    Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
    So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method,


    If none of the above work etc, then my advise is to get a serviceman to call. Contact a Whirlpool agent, and when they call, ask for a "quote" before allowing any repair work to be undertaken.

    Whirlpool AWO3761 stuck mid-cycle


    The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
