SOURCE: Whirlpool gold quiet wash plus


It may be an issue with control board please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes plug it back and press & hold AIR DRY button for 20 seconds to check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Whirlpool Gold Quiet Wash Plus...model#gu940scgq2...about 15 years old...washes fine but now there are 2 buttons that do not work - air dry button (which is also the lock/unlock controls) and the...

At 15 years old you are probably going to find that parts will be limited in availability and expensive if they are available. With buttons not working, that sounds like probably a controller problem and that would be an expensive part. You would probably be better off putting your money into replacing the dishwasher. The average lifespan on a dishwasher is anywhere from 7 to 10 years, so you have your money's worth out of that unit. Hope this helps!

Whirlpool quiet wash plus dishwasher

Sounds like the timer module is going bad. Might be getting moisture on contacts. That would explain why it works one time and not the next.Just trying to help!

Whirlpool quiet wash plus DU920GWGD4 runs after cycle is finished. Just hums, no blades turning. No sign of leak... If I turn circuit off then back on it is fine until it runs a few times again. ...any...

Water air lock problem. Check your inlet for free flow.

Pour water from the front and mostly it will ease the problem. After this cycle it should work OK. The humming is due to water starvation in the motor.

My Whirlpool quiet wash plus 940 series is stuck on "lock out"

Same problem and I was about to call for service. Opened the dishwasher to get the model number and noticed a sticker stating to hold down the Heated Dry button for 5 seconds to clear the lock light. Worked for me!

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus Dishwasher is not despensing the detergent properly. After a wash cycle there is still some left.

My Whirlpool Quiet Wash plus dishwasher seems to have died. No power. None of the buttons work, it quiet mid-cycle. No breaker issue, my garbage disposal runs off same breaker and is working fine. Any ideas? I was thinking the comp. board that the buttons work off of is fried. If this is the case any idea how much to replace it? Would it be cheaper to buy a new dishwasher?
