Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

Open Question

I own a whirlpool gold model #GU980SCGQ3 . After the rinse cycle the dishwasher stopped . The water has not drained out and nothing on the control panel works when you press the buttons. The breaker did not blow on our main fuse panel in the house. Something similar happened a year after we bought it and the electrical panel had to be replaced under warranty. Is this the same problem? or something different?

Hi vicyoung0921,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Will not start, seems to have no power at all. You checked the breaker and it's fine. Is there a reset button somewhere on this dishwasher ?

Whirlpool Dishwasher model gu980scgq3

No reset, if breaker is good then check the connection at the d/w. It's under the d/w behind the kick plate on right or center under a cover box. 9 times out of 10 you'll find a loose, broken or burnt connection there. That done, it's time to call in warranty repair. If beyond warranty you might consider utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repairman. If the d/w has a few years on it perhaps it is time to compare the cost of repair verses replacement.

Feel free contact me again!

After dishwasher completes cycle, it starts again. It will keep going unless we stop it.


If the cycle does not stop that is usually because of a faulty water level sensor. The floater that controls the water level in your appliance.The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely. Check if sensor is stuck or if switch is faulty.Some machine may use a membrane switch instead of a floater.

Stopped runing


If you Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher blinks 7 times and then repeats, indicates a problem in the dishwasher which should be investigated and not just the control 'reset'! That is why the control will not let the dishwasher start once such a condition is detected.
If the dishwasher's electronic control doesn't detect a water temperature increase during the main wash cycle, that symptom can occur. No water temperature increase could be caused by a problem in the heater element, its in-line thermostat, the related wiring or a problem in the electronic control.
It is also possible just the washer not spraying properly (possibly from blockage in the filter or problem in the pump), the dishwasher not filling sufficiently or draining prematurely or even a problem in the door latching mechanism's switch(es) could cause it.

I took the check valve assembly off the bottom of the pump assembly and there was a big chunk of string balled up in the line which created a plug against the screen when trying to drain.Works great now!

My whirlpool gold dishwasher runs wash and rinse cycles, but there is no water in the bottom of the washer.


the drain hose had slipped off its clamp at the back and there was no air gap to prevent siphoning. Replaced clamp, and hopefully this works.

Water does not drain out completely on our model GU1500 Whirlpool Gold dishwasher. This happens about every 4th time we run it. Water is cloudy and about 2" deep in bottom after cycle ends.


there is a PROBLEM with the pump.it is most likely clogged,in which case,it must be removed and cleaned.the pump might also be faulty,and so must be replaced.

Whirlpool Dishwasher DU850DWGX1 won't completely drain


Commonly this is result of low water pressure or hose height/length

As long as the water is below the heating element and the dishes are getting clean its actually normal. Sometimes the pressure or hose length/height meets specs but will not always drain all water.

But as long as it is below the heating element this is normal

I am sure.

Whirlpool gold- quiet partner III


An angel of mercy on another blog posted this solution and it worked for me as well. My Whirlpool Quiet Partner Dishwasher would not work due to the CLEAN light flashing in 7 interval sequences. I followed these steps and my dishwasher is not working perfectly...hope it works for you:

"Well for mine which is a Whirlpool Gold Model # GU2400XTPS3, I found the seq of buttons that I had to push to reset the curcuit board. I think it may of been in this forum somewhere. But I had to push - Sani Rinse, Heated Dry, Sani Rinse, Heated Dry, and then the dishwasher went through it's diagnostic cycle and then after that the light stopped blinking and the dishwasher works great. Supposily, there is a Product Tech Sheet behide the kick panel of every dishwasher, but mine was gone so I had to find the information on the internet. You might want to do a serach for the correct seq of buttons you have to push to reset the curcuit board. If you know for sure that the heating element is bad, you will have to order one. "
