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.

    Warranty repair! One month old means manufacturers defect. Should be covered under warranty.

Disconnect your circuit breaker for 20 minutes and then reset. It should reset your dishwasher.

SOURCE: Asko dishwasher won't start, just hums and gets hot

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.

Dishes are soaking wet at end of cycle. Is this normal?


No, it's not normal for them to be soaking wet at the end of the cycle, but there are things that can affect this. First, make sure you have Heated Dry selected. Next, make sure you are using rinse-aid (Jet Dry), because the new dishwashers don't use as much heat as the older dishwashers, and Jet Dry will greatly aid in the drying. Be aware that plastics won't get dry in any dishwasher. Other things you can do is turn on the extra heat options in the wash cycle, and turn on the Sani-Rinse option (if you DW has such options). Otherwise, you may have a heater or controller problem.

if it's only 3 months old then it's still well under warranty, call either the manufacturer, the place where you bought it or who installed it and it will be fixed for free or replaced.

The dishwasher doesnot dry anything.


  • 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.

    Cycle buttons work, option buttons dont, Cant deselect heated dry, Wont start


    The part is covered by warranty. However, the labor is not and Whirlpool will not replace the part without having someone service the unit. Every place I checked wanted $100 just to come out and tell me what was wrong. Any service would be extra. Seems like Whirlpool figured out how not to stand behind its products. They should be held accountable.
