Lights but won't start

The 'Normal' cycle lights come on and it displays 44 minutes, but it won't start or switch to another cycle or cancel. It's just frozen there.

  • Anonymous Jul 24, 2008

    The "normal" light is on, the time "42 minutes" is shown and this thing beeps about every 20 seconds. I finally unplugged it. While it was still plugged up, it would respond to no commands and seemed to be totally frozen. I have tried plugging and unplugging it several times. It's only about 3 1/2 years old. I can't find a repairman who will touch it.

The problem is with the touch control assembly. It is simple to replace yourself (20min). You can get one through appliancepartspros.com for $109.00 + tax/shipping. Do not call whirlpool. Their price? a whopping $332.00!

I have this machine, and it has had some issues. The sheet used by repairmen is located behind the front cover. To get to it you have to remove the Whirlpool emblem from the front of hte machine. It is a piece of rubber, just pry it with a screwdriver. Remove the screw, and slowly lift up the top coever. Do not go to far, if you do you can pop the metal hinges on the back. These will just reattach if that happens. The sheet is taped to the front in a plastic bag. You will find diagnostic codes and a bunch of other stuff that make troubleshooting this machine easier. Good luck. I hope this helps.

F9 error


Hi

F9 is a door lock error and to solve this issue you can hold the light switch for 15 seconds, this will reset the control. If it won't work then hold the light switch in and set the unit to clean and after a minute press cancel to cancel the clean cycle. If still it won't work then the door lock assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I suspect for either of these units that the timer control boards are bad.

Yes. I replaced the control panel (the panel with all the cycle buttons on it). I downloaded the technician's manual from whirlpool and went through the troubleshooting to find the problem. Th part costs around $106.00. Just make sure you order the right color.

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.
