Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

I have a Whirlpool Model DU943PWKQ0 dishwasher. Several of the controls on the front panel no longer work, ie normal wash, cnacel and drain, etc. Others like heavy duty wash work perfectly. It appears the most used are what is not functioning. My question is should I replace the Microcomputer assembly part number 8530929 or the Console (with overlay) part number 8274732. Can you help as I cannot really afford both!

SOURCE: Are white front door dishwasher replacement panels available?

Absolutly! There is a website that allows you to do a bunch of stuff to the front of your dishwasher , including changing colors, without actually unscrewing anything. Check out www.applianceart.com. They do sell stainless metal panels for cheap there too.

I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner Two dishwasher. The rinse only light & quick wash light constantly blink and I can't run it, none of the buttons will work. Is there a way I can reset my dishwasher?


This generally means the control panel is no longer working and must be replaced. That's the entire plastic assembly at the top of the door, in which the buttons reside. Disconnect power first, remove screws inside the door which hold the panel in place. Unplug power connectors, remove circuit board control board. Find dishwasher model number and search parts for that model. The part is pricey, more than $100 last time I replaced mine. Install control board into new panel, make power connection. Reassemble door. Good to go.

On my Whirlpool Gold the adaptive wash, rinse only, and start/resume lights are on. And the normal, hi temp wash, doorlock, and cancel/drain lights are flashing. Will not run a cycle.


This could be several things.
1. The heating coil in the bottom of the unit is bad.
2. The pump is plugged up with food.
3. The operating panel is bad.

If you take the kick panel off the front under the door, there should be a technicians service sheet. You can use that sheet to see what the exact problem is.

My quiet partner 111 whirlpool dishwasher is flashing clean


Hello.
Manufactured by Whirlpool, Kenmore dishwashers have an electronic control panel that must be unlocked in order to set or make changes to your dishwashing cycle. If an error light is blinking on your dishwasher's control panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinking lights on your dishwasher control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needs to be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the control panel, contact Sears to service your Kenmore dishwasher or consider troubleshooting the appliance yourself.
1Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button on your Kenmore dishwasher for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher control panel.
2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after the other, in fairly quick succession.
3 Wait for the dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
4 Press the "Cancel/Drain" button at the end of the diagnostic test cycle. This should reset the control panel on your Kenmore dishwasher.

Thanks.

I need to reset my Kenmore Elite dishwasher but i don't know how.


Hello,

follow the below instructions:

Unlock your Kenmore dishwasher control panel by pressing and holding the "Heated Dry" button for four seconds.

Press a series of four buttons in quick succession. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" to instruct your Kenmore dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test

Wait for two minutes while your Kenmore dishwasher runs its diagnostic test.

Press the "Cancel/Drain" button once your dishwasher has completed its diagnostic test. This should reset your dishwasher control panel and stop the "Clean" light from blinking repeatedly.
Good luck.

These dishwashers normally have a "Control Lock" mode.  It's in the manual.  It is provided for child safety.  It's often controlled by holding the "No Heat Dry" button for 4 seconds or more -- same procedure turns it on or off.

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher - Blinking Quick Rinse Light


I had the same flashing light problem first the normal wash flashing light then the others. I tried shuting of the breakers but nothing. I tried resetting the panel by pushing normal wash and heated dry simultaneously and nothing. So I took the six screws holding the front panel out and unplugged the ribbon type wires and plug and unplugged it several times to help make a better contact and I was able to get it to work right away. This may not work for all but I worked for me. It is very easy to do and it's worth a try if you're having the same problem. It took me less then 10 minutes.
