Question about Whirlpool 24 in. ADP6940 Dishwasher

2 Answers

Diswasher A couple of days ago my dishwasher would not start, there are lights on the front panel and it starts a washing programme but doesn't actually wash anything. I removed the filter from inside the dishwasher and it is full with water, it seems like there is a blokage somewhere. Would a blockage cause the diswasher not to start. Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    Had a problem when the drain backed up. Dishwasher will drain but not fill. I assume that the float valve (or one-way value?) is the problem. Where is this located and what needs to be done to get the dishwasher working again.

Check the float switch. If it is stuck the machine will start but no water will be allowed in and the pump will turn on to drain the non existant water. This happens often when a small item gets under the float preventing it from allowing the water valve to open. Find the float in the bottom of your machine and make sure it moves freely.

Hello ...

I tried to look up your model numbers here (usa)...
with no success... (Kenmore 13742 / 13744 / 13749)

I rarely (ever) suggest owners go direct to Sears...
but this would seem to be.. appropriate...

(I my opinion they are rude & pushy to sell parts
(good news ... here... their guaranteed fit/fix)).

Before doing so...


Check your water, drain & power at the appliance.

With the breaker turned of...

open the appliance cord JUNCTION BOX and assure the
wiring devices (usually "wire nuts") are still tight and secure.

Finding nothing... you are at the UNHAPPY JUNCTURE
where you need to use SEARS PARTS DIRECT...

Once dishwasher starts wash cyle, it keeps running wash cyle indefinitely. what do i need to do


Possible that the diswasher control panel is not in order and is a suspect. remove power for some to reset the board. Try with different program and if the same action continues check with the panel board before you can think of swapping to confirm the case.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The problem is with the control board that is bad and yes these parts are covered less than 5 to 7 years of warranty, for this you have to contact manufacturer. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

No power or lights in the front panel


Check the fuse / circuit breaker inside washing machine. There may be a extra control circuit fuse normally on the control PCB.

Maytag Quiet Series 200 dishwasher doesn't start


The electronic control panel has gotten wet and needs to be replaced (about $200 for parts plus about $200 for service call/labor) I just had mine replaced about 10 month ago, stopped using the type of dishwasher soap I had based on Maytag Service staff recommendation, stopped using hot wash to prevent high condensation at the door and now its broken again and in need of a new control panel again. You may be money ahead to go buy a new dishwasher that does not have the plastic encased control panel at the top. My understanding is the control panels are poorly engineered and made for most dishwasher manufactures by one of the mega electronic/appliance companies.

KUDS25SHWH1 Kitchenaid Dishwasher Control Panel Only CANCEL light on


I bought a control board for $127.00 figuring that was the problem but it wasn't. I called an appliance guy who came out and said its the touchpad that needs to be replaced. I ordered the touchpad ($325) since I already have to much invested in this dishwasher. I paid $1200 for it 8 years ago and its really a great dishwasher. My appliance confirmed that if it was the fuse-ling that you would not have any lights on.
