Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

DISHWASHER I have a problem with my CDA - CW494 dishwasher (6 ½ years old) You can switch it on and the lights come on. Then when you go to shut the door the lights switch off and the dishwasher doesn't start. If you move the door up and down the lights switch on and off. My husband has checked all wiring connections and they seem fine.

One of the switches in the door latch are not making contact properly. before you take the door apart make sure the dishwasher is 100% level. this can affect the door lat switches

The start light is flashing on my GE dishwasher?

What's the model number? How old is this dishwasher? The new GE dishwashers (less than 3 years old) have a weakness in the door switch/latch assembly, and that would cause the light to flash - it wants you to press Start and close the door, but it's not recognizing that the door is closed.

CDA CW494 dishwasher. Was fine yesterday. Switched it on today, and nothing happened - it just beeped and the on-button flashed.

Unfortunately I can't solve your problem but exactly the same thing happened to me yesterday

My Viking Dishwasher is about 7 years old and it does not fill with water

The water that fills your dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with your dishwasher's filling ability.

CDA dishwashers are manufactured by Whirlpool, so you can download the instruction manual from here:

Type the model number (e.g. cw494) into the 'commercial code' box and it will bring up all relevant manuals.
