Question about Whirlpool 24 in. GU1500XTLS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

None of the Wash Cycles are Working

Hello, my GU1500 XTLS will no start. There is no water in it. The overfill float appears to be okay. The only buttoms that result in something occurring are the Cancel, Delay and Air Dry. When I hit Cancel or Delay, it cycles for 2 minutes, I am assuming it is attempting to drain. When I hit Air Dry the light comes on. When I hit/hold Air Dry, it does activate the Control Lock. When Control Lock is active and I try to hit another button, the Control Lock light flashes, so I assume the dishwashers is registering that the buttons are being pressed. After disabling the Control Lock and hitting any of the wash cycle buttons, nothing happens, no lights, no sounds, a whole lot of nothing occurs. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    I have the same darn problem. What did you need to do to get it fixed?

    I have the same EXACT problem. I replaced the control board and problem persists. How do I change the touch-pad if at all possible or should I give up and go out and buy a bosch? thank you.

It's probably the touchpad - commonly used buttons quit working after a while. If not, then it's the electronic control board.

Getting FE error saw a answer for this model on fixya said to clean the float module where no plastic float on bottom of washer


The FE error or fault code indicates that the washer is overfilling due to a defective water inlet valve. The valve is not repairable and will need to be replaced. If the error persists even after the water inlet valve has been replaced there may be a problem with the main control circuit board

The clean button blinks. the only button that works is the drain button.


Hello

Confirm that the door is closed and latched. dishwashers can detect if the door is open and will cancel any cleaning cycles to prevent water spillage. Wait for around 20 minutes before unplugging or moving the dishwasher in case the washer is cooling down, draining or drying dishes. Call a technician if the dryer does not restart.

Verify that a cycle has been selected using the "Cycles" button and that the "Start/Resume" button has been pressed. Unlike some models of dishwasher, appliances won't start until you select a cleaning cycle and press the "Start/Resume" button.

Confirm that the dishwasher's electrical outlet is switched on, if necessary, and that power is being supplied by plugging in a lamp. You may need to replace a fuse or reset a breaker on the electrical circuit if the lamp will not work in the outlet. Ensure that the dishwasher is plugged into the outlet.

Ensure that the water shutoff valves at the wall are open and that the supply hoses are free of kinks. Your washer will not start if it is unable to access the water supply. Most shutoff valves need to be turned clockwise or moved to the "Open" position to work properly.

Open the door and check the overfill float in the bottom of the dishwasher. Push it down to make sure it can move up and down freely. The machine will not start if the sensor is stuck at the top. The overfill float looks like a small cone on top of a disc with a paddle attached to the side.

Hi My dishwasher seems to get stuck in a cycle when you start it - it lets water in for around 20 secs - then pumps it out - then lets water in for say 20 secs then pumps it out - over and over and...


Hello Gerard,

This is an overfill 'fault' generally caused by one of the following:

1. Faulty or incorrectly installed flow-meter
2. An airlock in the fill chamber
3. Faulty float switch (less likely)

There are some simple checks you can do to determine the cause of the fault and hopefully solve the problem without replacing any parts - no tools required at this point.

First, open the door, pull out the lower basket and locate the float. This is the 'mushroom' in the base of the washing compartment:

belectric_200.jpg
With the washer empty of water, make sure the float is fully lowered. There should be a gap of 2-3mm between the float and the base of the washer and you should be able to lift it about half an inch / 12-15mm. When you lift it, it should fall when you let go. If it's raised when the washer is empty, it should not rise again on its own when pushed down.

If the float seems to be working correctly, the controller is receiving erroneous signals from the flow-meter that the washer is full or overfilled. This causes the washer to pump out - then resume the fill cycle because the water level is too low to start the wash. If this is caused by an air-lock, there is a simple trick to clear the air-lock and, therefore, the fault.

1. Start a wash cycle and keep you finger ready on the power switch on the control panel.
2. As soon as you hear the pump start during the fill cycle, interrupt the cycle by pressing the power switch to the off position
3. Wait for about 10 seconds, then switch the power on again.

The machine should resume filling rather than pumping out. Keep your finger ready on the power switch and repeat steps 2 and 3 until the washer is filled and the washing cycle starts. If you can get the washer to run a cycle using this trick, you may not need to do anything else, but you may need to repeat the procedure described above at the start of the next few cycles.

If the washer does not resume filling and continues pumping when you switch the power on again or you have to repeat the procedure above at the start of every wash cycle before it will run, you will need to check the flow-meter and, most likely, replace it.

I'm happy to provide step-by-step assistance with checking and replacing the flow-meter if required, but please check the float and try the simple trick above first, then let me know if you need further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

Hotpoint FDW60 overfills and spills out onto the floor when


There is a float in the bottom of the tub that is supposed to rise with the water level and tell the machine when it is full. It looks like an upside down teacup, or a little sombrero and should be near the door, but off to one side.

This float might be snagged on something- remove the bottom rack and check for debris (food, utensils, hair, string...) in the tub. Also make sure there is nothing in the rack that is hanging down over the float. With the machine empty try to raise and lower the float with your hand.

If the float appears to be going up and down then check the electrical side of the switch with a continuity tester (ohm meter). It should go from no resistance to open circuit and back again when you move the float.

If that is okay check the wiring and wire ends for frayed wires or corroded terminals from the switch to the controller.

Last item is it could be an issue with the controller.

I am almost certain that your problem is the fill solenoid.

If it does not work, there will be no water entering your machine.

I would either remove it and test it or just replace it at this point.
