Dishwasher stopped mid programme

Whirlpool DWF416W service no. 854241615710.
Yesterday the programme was set but dishwasher stopped mid programme. I openedthe door and the 2 green indicator lights in the door for 'start' and 'selectedprogramme' were off but then came on and go off as the position of the door ischanged by opening and closing it. There was water in the bottom of thedishwasher. I closed the door and the machine started again water was emptied.

Today I reloaded it and set programme, it filled with water, rinsed, releasedsoap tablet then stopped. The tablet is lying on the bottom of the dishwasher.There is water in the bottom of the dishwasher.
The 2 green indicator lights were off when I opened the door but then came onagain but go off when the door is fully closed.
There must be power or the green indicator lights wouldn't come on at all.
Can you help please? It seems to me like it might be the switch in the door??

Re: dishwasher stopped mid programme

First place I would go is the door switches, make sure the dor switch assembly is not broken, and switches working.

We have a Haier DW12-PFE2-U dishwasher thats 2 years old. The cycle stopped yesterday leaving an amount of water in the bottom and all of the program lights are illuminated with a recurring beeping sound...

Refer userr guide on page 21. It reads...

When all the programme indicators " J" blink.

Have you checked whether:
the door is closed properly.

The door switch could be the problem or the door seal is pushing the door open. May need replacement.

My old Whirlpool DU8500X stopped yesterday in mid cycle and now will do nothing. Standing water in bottom. Tried breaker reset already.

If it is a top loader, a whirlpool normally has a fuse in a cartridge holder inside the top panel. Once panel is opened, trace the power wires, and look carefully for the fuse cartridge holder. Replace it. This fuse normally protects overloading of washing so as not to damage motor.If the fuse is good, then try and bridge the door limit out for a short while to ascertain if that is the problem. Please let me know.

Whirlpool ADG 957. Light for rinse programme on but start light flashing intermittently. Cannot change programme, cannot start machine.

Mine was doing exactly the same. I turned off power, held down the 2 black buttons on right, switched back on and the start button flashes intermittently. It then allowed me to change programs, just testing it now!! It started, this was more then it was doing!! lol

No Power

You probably have a bad door switch assm, there is no reset on this unit, if you have a bad door switch the unit thinks the door is open so it won't start.

Whirlpool GU2548 green light flashing, nothing working

I have had the same problem with my the same dishwasher. The manual says that "the dishwasher has malfunctioned. Call service to check heater element". I called service and they are saying that replacing the heater element and possibly the electronic panel may be required. Total cost (part + labor) = $350-400!! I am very very upset with Whirlpool right now.
