Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

1 Answer

Have a Model DU1055XTPT4 Dishwasher purchased in early 2007. Dishwasher starts cycle, fills and then just hums. The lights on the control panel are normal - no flashing. Washer can be drained with cancel so the pump is OK. Any advice?

The drain pump and wash pump are seperate on that unit. So you have a main pump that is locked. The sump and motor assembly runs about $200.00 so you might try taking the pump apart first but I have never had much luck getting one of these cleaned out. The only other thing I've seen do this is a wire off the motor capacitor. But this was always on new installs.

Frigidaire dishwasher fills but then the motor is not running for the wash cycle


Hey Gary, thank you for your inquiry!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher fills with water and then the motor will not run to complete the cycle. This could be an issue within the control panel or motor of the dishwasher. Which lights are flashing on the control panel of the dishwasher? Can you provide me with your model number as well? Once I have that additional information I would be able to assist you. -Matt

Dishwasher hums intermitantly and after the wash cycle is completed


Sounds like you have a bearing going out. It could be in the system pump or the rotating washing arms. I would suggest getting ahold of Kitchenaid's customer support and relay when during which cycle the noise occurs and they should be able to identify whats going wrong.

Maytag MDB4651AWS Dishwasher will not start.


Do you ever hear the fill solenoid click on to begin the filling. That is the first thing that has to occur. The water supply generally connects right to that solenoid. Ohm out the solenoid coil. ( breaker power off)

I have a du1030xtxs1 dishwasher that will not even start filling. The door latch switch, over fill switch and fill valve seem to be okay. I tested the wires coming to the fill valve by disconnecting them...


Yes, probably a control board, or wiring to the valve from the board. Call Whirlpool with your model and serial number, if the manufacturing date is within the last year, they will cover the repair without a date of purchase. Or you can contact the seller and see if they have a date of purchase for you. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Hear a humming sound when the dishwasher turned on. The panel seems to be ok. Model is GU1500'


Hello & Welcome to FixYa


If the hum sound is coming from the bottom panel then it is the moto that has gone bad and needs replacement. However, if you hear the sound from the control then it can be due to a bad relay in the control and it is recommended to replace the control completely. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My dishwasher starts fills water and never starts wash cycle?


If you hear a hum when it should be washing, the motor has seized. Replace motor. If it fills with water and stops quite, run it through a test using the tech sheet under the bottom panel to access. These dishwasher have had issues with the motor.

Watch the light closely. If it blinks 7 times then pauses, this indicates a heater or door latch issue.
Press the following buttons in sequence: Hi Temp Wash, Heated Dry, Hi Temp Wash, Heated Dry, Hi Temp Wash.
If this doesn't work, check the tech sheet. (should be stuck to inside of the bottom toe panel)

All lights should illuminate then a diagnostic sequence will start.
Listen carefully, as soon as you hear the water begin to fill, open the door and feel the heater. if cold, check the heater for continuity (should be around 10ohms)
Also, bend the door catch on the dishwasher tub downward, this will engage the door latch better. Don't bend too far as it will hit the door while closing.
