Question about Dishwashers
My Whirlpool dishwasher stopped heating the water and air for the hot air dry option. It would not accept the command for these options. My older unit had a burned out heating element in the bottom of the wash cabinet. Yours may be burned out or simply have a loose connection to the heating element. Part is not expensive, but the installation is a bit extensive. It should be covered under manufacturers warranty.

I am here for the exact same reason. Mine is less than 3 months old. This may be a recall item. I bought, and paid more for a kitchen aide for the name and reputation.....Where can I find the model number?

Get this every few months - don't know the problem but we disconnect from unit and tilt the dishwasher and loads of stinky water spills out - from where I don't know. Then just **** all the water out of the drain bit with a chicken baster - primative but has worked every time so far. Keep trying to get water out until doesn't hum when switched on.

Check the rinse aid indicator beside the rinse aid dispenser cap. If the indicator window is clear, refill the dispenser. The dishwasher will retain moisture and the heat dry option will not perform properly without rinse aid. Turn the dispenser cap clockwise and lift it up to remove it. Pour rinse aid into the dispenser until the indicator appears full. Place the dispenser cap over the dispenser and turn it counterclockwise to tighten it.
Load the dishes properly so that all dishes can drain after the rinse cycle. Do not overload the dishwasher. Towel-dry plastic dishes because they will not dry completely during the dry cycle.
Select the heated dry option on the dishwasher. The air-dry and energy-saving dry options will not perform as well as the heated dry.
