There is a short in the machine somewhere. Take a flashlight and look around the wiring and see if you can spot a bare wire touching any of the other metal or the frame.

Most Whirlpool manufactured dishwashers have a thermal fuse, located inside the operator console. When tripped, the dishwasher will not run. A power outage can cause the thermal fuse to trip. It cannot be reset and has to be replaced, if bad. Please post back with your COMPLETE MODEL NUMBER (located around the door opening) so I can determine the configuration of your dishwasher and explain how to access any potential fuses. -->

Check your main power input. Switch off and ON. If no display
Internal fuse / circuit would have tripped.

Try replacing / Resetting. No improvement contact service center for assistance.

Please DO NOT touch this machine IF the power is ON. There is a possibility of shock. The reason, the ONLY reason, that the Breaker "Trips" is, if there is a, Phase fault to Earth/Neutral, in other words the CASE of the machine. Please get a serviceman or electrician.

Whirlpool adg 7540 no power


HI, there are four problem spots that i recommend checking. these are the most common hot spots for a non responsive dishwasher. Check each area thoroughly to address this issue.


1. No power to the dishwasher
Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

3. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

My whirlpool dishwasher keeps tripping the power off. Do you know what the problem could be?


hmmm...I would check the electrical power connections at the bottom of the dishwasher for melting or burning....otherwise it sounds like there is a short in the wiring of the dishwasher somewhere and would hve to be traced out.

If this is a blinking "clean light", this is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models. I believe the problem is attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some sensitivity issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers. There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot. This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on what the flashing light sequence is in determining WHAT component is bad. Let me know if this helps you. Post back with your comments or questions.

It sounds like it, yes. My guess would bedthe heating element. Does it have a "cold was" program you could try? If it still trips the fues it may be the motorr that is broken.
