Question about Whirlpool 24 in. GU1500XT - Multiple Color Built-in Dishwasher
My dishwasher has stopped drying very well. It previously would dry even the plastic containers and plastic cups well, but now most everything plastic and some glassware is still wet when the cycle finishes. Does this sound like it is the heating element that we need to replace?
SOURCE: Won't run - normal light flashes
You may try removing power to D/W for a minute and reconecting. likely cause though is keypad (console). If a light above a pad stays on the pad is likely closed all the time. Normal is probably cycle most often used. you can test the keypad by removing power to D/W and accessing the control panel. remove conncter P-1 and using an ohmeter test resistance between 13 and 4 on the connecter coming from keypad. yes without very small clips or 4 steady hands it is a little tricky. in the field we use a breakout board. if you get any reading when not pushed pad is bad. you may find a manual inside the kickplate which explains the keypad sequence. it may be control but more likely keypad, even if test is inconclusive.

Our heater wasnt working either, read your comments, pulled it apart and bingo! a dry solder on the 12V relay. Thanks everyone you've saved my sanity!!

would be easier to remove the dw form the cabinet , at least partially. Hopefully there is enough slack in the electrical line as well as water feed line. sometomes you can walk the d/w out woithout disconnecting them. the heating element can be unscrewed from underneath( 2 white lug screws mount them to the underneath of unit)..

Check the heating element to see if it is bad. If you just order a heating element for it, it will come with an element and a new control board. That should take care of your problem. Remember use only powder detergent in your machine. No tabs and no gel.
