Question about Whirlpool 24" White BuiltIn Dishwasher Dishwasher
Hi I am Kelly. What you should do is first turn off input power and perform resistance readings.
1. Unhook one wire of the heating element and read each of the element end terminals ONLY to the chassis and the outside cover of the heating element.(not to each other) If the element has failed internally they are notorious for tripping circuit breakers or burning out thermal links. Make sure to reconnect the heating element terminal if it reads correctly.
2. Make sure the circuit breaker is OFF and then test each of the input power terminals to the pump / motor case. Only the ground should read to the pump motor case. If either of the other 2 leads read to the motor case then most likely water has leaked into the motor and caused a short.
These are the 2 most common dishwasher shorts. There is always a possibility of a chaffed or broken wire somewhere but it is not nearly as common as the first 2 above.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
