Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

1 Answer

I turned on my Whirlpool dishwasher last night before I went to bed. It is a model number DU915PwP82. Sometime shortly after that, a water line broke in my neighborhood. The water was off and caused some sort of problem with my dishwasher. There is some water in the bottom of the dishwasher. It won't drain or start washing. Do I need to call a repair man or is there a reset button of some sort. Thanks for your help. Rina

Hi.
Often there is a lot of grit in the water supply after a pipe has been repaired, and this may have clogged one or more of the valves in your line, or the gauze filter in the inlet port on your machine. I would first turn off the water to the machine and disconnect the flexible pipe at the inlet valve on the back of the machine. If the inlet filter is clogged, there is part of your problem. If it isn't, place the end of the inlet hose in a bucket and turn on the water supply a little bit to see if water comes out. If it doesn't flow freely, then it's likely another valve in the line is clogged.
I think the machine may have stopped because it is waiting for water to reach the required level. You could check this, I guess, by adding water from a jug and then closing the door.

Hope this helps you a bit. D.

'clean' light flashes


Press the normal wash then heated dry buttons in the same sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the cancel button.It will clear any existing faults and makes the dishwasher to operate normally.

To prevent the issue from recurring, run your hot water faucet first to ensure that hot water is present in the entire supply line before starting the filling.

Kenmore Elite 17483 Dishwasher Caught Fire!


Had the exact same problem (Control panel burning up, sparking, and smoking during wash cycle) last night with our Kenmore Elite DW model 665.16293400 purchased Nov. 2004. I have reported it to the CPSC and www.kitchenaidfire.com and will be contacting Sears first thing tomorrow. It is outrageous that this problem is apparently so widespread with nothing being done about it! I have no doubt my kitchen would have been in flames if I had not been sitting right here to shut off power to the D/W.

Dishwasher wont fill


I fit won't fill then apparently you're not getting any water to it, which means it not's fixed. Did you turn the service valve back on since the repairs were made? Sometime when you turn a service valve off they fail to re-open. Crack the inlet water line and verify that you have incoming water.
