Re: whirlpool dishwasher stopped working...

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.

We have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner GU980SCGZ0 model. When rinse cycle is over the water only trickles out when draining. We checked the drain and it is not plugged. Water remains sitting in bottom of...

I took the check valve assembly off the bottom of the pump assembly and there was a big chunk of string balled up in the line which created a plug against the screen when trying to drain.Works great now!

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.
