Question about Dishwashers

Dishwasher won't start

We have a Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus dishwasher (owner's manual says series 900, 915) and it won't start. We used it last night, and loaded it up today without thinking about it twice, but now it won't start at all - no lights go on, etc. We've checked the circuit breaker, water heater, door latch, etc, and haven't found the problem so far...

Re: Dishwasher won't start

Kaclf, If you have no lights at all, dishwasher unresponsive, it's probably one of two things. First check the junction box where the cord hooks up to the dishwasher. Sometimes I find a bad connection in the wire-nut. Second, there is a thermal fuse that sits on the control board. You will have to remove the inside panel. You want to see if it's blown. It will be sitting on the top side of the board, two wires going to it. Catriver

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 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?
