Question about Whirlpool GU3600XTS Dishwasher
My gu3600xt has power...the lights work, but it will not start. The display panel simply has two dashes, as if the unit was not shut properly (even though it is). When I press the start button there is no response from the dishwasher
I shut off the power at the plug and at the breaker to see if that would solve it, but it didn't.
This has been a problem in the past, the dishwasher doesn't work for a few days, and then one day it decides to run the cycle after I press start.
The symptoms you are having could be sensor related but I think you are experiencing something more. Since the unit does not start at times I think we should look first at the door latch and door switches.
If the door closes but the latch is worn it may not be electrically 'making' the door interlock switch, this could cause the machine to not start.
One quick test for this would be if you do get it started pull slightly on the door without opening it, see if it turns off, or push on the door while trying to start it. Taking the console off to test the door latch is pretty easy. Take the screws off from the inner door panel around the top and the console will come down.
The other reason I think it is the door latch is the fact that doing the key dance with Heated Dry - Normal...... resets the control, the only reason the control would lock out is for a heating failure, the door switch is part of the heating circuit on your model.
