    BTW, must have been a time bomb, cuz mine stopped working on 11/17/07 as well. It worked just fine for a little over a year with the "hotter" fuse, but I cant just keep dropping $100+ to fix a $250 unit.

    no power at the circut board I pulled the wires from the white fuse on the control panel and put a jumper wire into the two leads and held down the door switch and it turned on and emptied going to but new fuse

    My solution is to buy ANOTHER BRAND.....This unt is ONLY 18 months old and a 2007 model....So If I have it repaired for $150.00 and then another

    or the SAME circuit blows a year from now, I could have bought a NEW dishwasher with this outlay of resources...When my husband called Whirlpool's 800 line, they knew IMMEDIATELY that it was the circuit board...Logical deduction that this is COMMON with their units, and not an extraordinary problem...I have no intention of wasting any more of MY money to have it repaired...and my NEXT unit WILL NOT be a WHIRLPOOL dishwasher... It's a nice racket, if you can get it!!! They will not be getting THIS one....Donna Kurtz

    Same problem. It stopped working in the middle of a cycle. Checked fuse box, plug, they are fine. No lights on panel. Water in bottom of tub. Tried to check the fuse, but I don't have an ohm meter. just ran a wire from one plug wire to the other. No lights came on the panel. Tub didn't start draining. I did get a good shock when I tried checking the switch though. I have no idea. please help.

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.

    Just wanted to follow up on you dishwasher and see what you found out.



    I agree with you about the cost of repair versus the cost of the unit. Most any appliance that cost less than $350 is a tough call on whether to repair or replace if you don't repair it yourself. The cost to have a tech come repair it will usually run 1/2 the price of a new one if not more. Since yours worked ok for a year then then there is either a different problem or something that is happening very seldomly to cause the fuse to blow. Also, the kit with the "hotter" fuse also has new wire ends with it due to loose connections causing the fuse to heat up and blow. I am finding many techs are not replacing the connectors which can cause a repeat failure. You could have a hi-limit thermostat on the heater sticking or a problem with the control or temp sensor. But unless it causes a problem with every use it is next to impossible to track it down. You could purchase the parts and repair economicly but the cost to have it repaired by someone else would cost more than the machine.

    Good luck with the new dishwasher.

No power to Selections, Water Did Not Drain

When you remove the bottom panel cover, check the wiring connection inside the junction box on the right for a loose or shorted wire.
If that's ok, open up the console and check the continuity of the thermal fuse that's clipped to the control board. Chances are it needs to be replaced.
Good luck!

Dishwasher stopped and will not start

Try jigling the ribbon cable that is connected to the control panel. These ribbon cables sometimes fail. Also check the fuse on the control board to see if it is blown.
