Whirlpool dp1040xtx flashing code 61 and 66. 61 flashed a couple times. What's wrong?

F6E1 - Water is not present in the machine when it should be.

Could be: inlet hose filter clogged, blocked holes on spray arms, dishes not loaded according to manual, water tap closed or water pressure too low, drain hose placed incorrectly, DW filters clogged, check dispenser (missing dispenser gasket, improper detergent), check water indicator (OWI or VWI) depending of model DW, check connections beetwen OWI (optical water indicator) and CB (control board), main motor, wiring, control board.

Check the foam level in the appliance. Depending what kind of detergent was used. Was the foam level too high?
Comment: Washing tabs combined with short washing cycles can produce too high foam level.

Whirlpool gu1200xtls2 wont drain just stopped


your Whirlpool dishwasher stopped draining mid-cycle, check your circuit breaker or fuses. The cycle won't complete if the power is interrupted. Reset the circuit breaker if tripped, or change out any blown fuses. Fully close the dishwasher door, and restart the cycle if you opened up the door. If you have not used the dishwasher in a while, the motor may be stuck. Open up the main housing, and rotate the motor until it turns freely. You must replace the motor if it's corroded or won't move since it's unlikely that you can fix it.


The pump is located underneath the lower rack and spray arm. This component is responsible for pumping water out of the dishwasher once the cycle is complete. If the pump isn't working, verify that it is not clogged with debris. Use a toothpick or plastic utensil to remove food particles from it. Check the pump impeller. If a section of it is broken, get a new pump since the impeller is difficult to fix.


Clogs in the air gap or drainage hose prevent water from leaving the tub. Clean these components and the water inlet filters, if dirty. Examine the drainage hose, and straighten it if it's kinked. If the hose is badly crushed, you must replace it. Unscrew the drainage hose from the dishwasher to clean it, but reattach it before you restart the cycle. Run the food waste disposer if it's connected to your Whirlpool dishwasher. Remove the knockout plug from the disposer if you have just installed the disposer or dishwasher.

Drain Valve/High Drain Loop

Whirlpool dishwashers have drain valves with an internal solenoid. This valve opens and closes to drain water out of the tub. If the drain valve is stuck, lubricate the lever, and remove any debris clogging the valve. Remove any objects that are preventing the drain valve from freely opening and closing. If the valve is not working properly, you must replace it. Always install a high drain loop to prevent water from the sink entering your dishwasher. Create a loop of the drainage hose that is at least 18 inches high. Attach this hose beneath a section of cabinetry.

Dishwasher will not drain

If you can close the door, turn the control to drain and, can hear the motor running; you have a clog under the pump screen in the back of the Dish Washer preventing the pump impeller from turning
if you hear nothing: reset the house circuit breaker.
to fix: while the DW is on turn off the DW house circuit breaker then remove the pump screen and, remove the broken glass etc. from the pump then: repower and, test.

Water does not drain.

If this is your 1st dishwasher and you have a garbage disposal installed, quite possibly the dw inlet fitting on the disposal still has the knockout in place. Remove the dw drain hose from the disposal and check to see if the knockout has been removed.

Maytag dishwasher doesn't completely drain!

First check to see if anything has gotten into the sump drain inside the bottom of the dishwasher tub. Sometimes a piece of plastic wrap, or other small item can become lodged there, causing the DW to drain slowly.

If nothing there, check the air-gap device at the sink, as these can become clogged over time and that would also prevent proper draining. The air-gap is the round (usually silver chrome colored) cap mounted on the corner of the sink). Pull off the cap, it comes straight up with a little twist and polling motion. Clean out the screen filter and also look down the hose to see if there are any obstructions in the drain hose.

If that is OK, check the drain hose from the air-gap down to the connection at the sink drain, or if you have a disposal, where it is connected to the disposal. Sometimes small bits of stuff can get stuck in the hose at these various points and any build up over time, will make proper draining difficult.

You can also flush the drain lines with hot water to make sure the lines are clear. If none of this works, you could have something in the DW sump pump and that will require removing the DW from under the counter and checking the pump area for obstructions. Sometimes you can easily remove the flexible pump body and get at the drain valves. Just be sure to disconnect the power and turn off the water supply before removing the DW to attempt any repairs.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

It will not hurt the DW, just make ALOT of suds. Get some defoamer used for spa tubs. Use a little at a time, fill, let it wash for 10 seconds then drain. Repeat if necessary until sudsing is gone.
