Whirlpool Dishwasher part number 8051291

I have a whirlpool dishwasher that just stopped working. I checked for AC coming in and it is there. I checked to make sure that the door switch is functioning properly with an ohm meter. The machine has no water damage around the motor or any component area.

It sounds like the thermal fuse in the control console has blown.
Turn power off to unit.
Remove the outer door panel and then the console.
Remove the black plastic cover from over the circuit board if it has one.
You should see the thermal fuse clipped to the circuit board housing.
If you have an ohm meter, check for continuity across it, it should read closed.
If you don't have a meter, unplug the wires from it and and hook them together.
Turn power back on to unit, hold door switches down and cancel cycle. The washer should drain the water.
If this doesn't work, check your door switches to make sure they are closing properly.

SOURCE: Whirlpool dishwasher will not start

I have a quiet partner I and it is doing the same thing!
I have only had it for 3 months. It did it once before, then after about a week, I tried it again and it worked fine?
I can't find my warranty anywhere. I bought it at Lowes.
Does anyone have any kind of solution? Looks like it is a common problem.

There should be a check valve in the drain hose to prevent that.
Is the sink drain clogged?

DU801 is not the complete model number. Find the complete model number. It should be just inside the door on the right side of the tub.
Go to sears parts direct. And enter your model number and find the part number for the drain hose of your dishwasher. The number in the video may be the correct one.

Aqua stop hose allows water through when disconnected from Whirlpool dishwasher but stops water when dishwasher demands water

looks to me like as if the direction of the hose is incorrect. Check to see if there is a direction of flow arrow on the hose and point that arrow away from the tap towards the machine.

DWF 415 Ikea Whirlpool Dishwasher has constant green blinking light. Drain pump works ok (as it will pump out a jug of water if I tip it into it!) but no water comes in. Cycle stops about 30 seconds after...

Anyone got an answer to this, as I have exactly the same fault.

Dishwasher appears to switch on OK, then after a short time (20 secs?) the pump noise stops and the green light flashes - it seems to e a sequence of 7 flashes, then stop... 7 flashed then stop.

The sequence could indicate a fault detected?

Anyone know anything about these units from IKEA, made by Whirlpool?

Change the thermal fuse in the control and door switches. The thermal fuse is designed to fail if there is a problem with the switches.

Model numbers that are worn or missing are hard to find. When you go to whirlpool's website you might find your dishwasher there, other wise it might not have them listed because it is obsolete.

One place to look is on the panel below your dishwasher door. In some cases it is stuck there, or somewhere else under the dishwasher.
I have seen them inside of the dishwasher housing (under the cabinet between cabinet and dishwasher.

Very rarely will you find the model numbers inside of the dishwasher doors. However according to Whirlpool, if you open your door, you will find a sticker or a riveted plate on the right hand side of the dishwasher's frame, near the seals.

One thing I suggest however once you have discovered the model number, write it down and put it someplace safe.

Good luck

Problems with Whirlpool dishwasher model GU1500XTKB0

will these units (silo and jtrip) start back on their own? if so, it is likely they are heating the water.
otherwise it sounds like a logic board, unless there is a defective door switch or sensor issue.
electronics seem to be a recurring problem with whirlpool.
i would ask whirlpool (electorlux) to either buy it back or fix it.
good luck
