Question about Whirlpool 24 in. GU1500XT - Multiple Color Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Does not Wash

In every mode, water fills the bottom of the washer and the sensor light comes on while the water is heated. Once the water is heated, the sensor light goes out. This is normal operation up to this point.

Instead of beginning the wash cycle, the water is drained and the sensor light comes on and nothing else happens.

It is important to note that this dishwasher has two motors, a drain motor and a wash motor. Since the drain motor appears to work fine, my assumption is that the wash motor is either obstructed by a small object (i.e. glass) or is broken.

However, before buying a wash motor, it would helpful to eliminate any other possibilities.

First check if there was an object that obstruct the motor, try to clean that area, and run again the unit, if the problem was still there, then could be the washer motor was broke.

Will not start bottom of area full of water.


It sounds like the problem could be caused by the fact that the heating element, or the hot water sensor, has failed so that the washer will not proceed with the wash program until the water is up to the correct temperature. You should be able to easily tell if the element is getting hot. You could try manually putting in hot water before the washer fills up with cold to see if the wash then proceeds which will mean that the heating element needs replacement.

The dishwasher fills up it starts to spray the water but after 5 seconds it emptys. It then does the other the rest of the wash normally. This happens in all modes.


Check to see if water at the base of the washer has caused the "anti flood system" to trigger. The anti flood device is a polystireene float and micro switch that does trigger (and puts the washer in pump out mode) once water via leak or spill is detected. You can tilt the washer to 45 degrees and check if a small amount of water comes out of the bottom. As you indicate that the washer emptys after 5 sec I do think that the anti flood system is causing this.

SHU 53 MODELS To start test program, press and hold both SCRUB WASH and DELICATE/ECONO program buttons, then turn unit on by pressing ON/OFF button. Initially, control module version # will be displayed (e.g./ ?21? = version 1 with jumper). When wash program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press ON/OFF button. To check each program indicator light, press its button. To check Cycle Countdown display, Refill Rinse Agent light and REGULAR WASH light, press REGULAR WASH button (press Delay Start button to test Cycle Countdown display alone). Cycle Countdown display will show ?88″ when REGULAR WASH button is pressed and ?8h? when Delay Start button is pressed. To start testing, press both the SCRUB WASH and DELICATE/ECONO buttons a second time. When testing has ended, Cycle Countdown display will show a fault using codes below. If more than one fault occurs, code numbers will be added together, (e.g./ ?6? = faults 2 + 4). 0 = No faults detected 2 = Heating fault 8 = NTC (temperature sensor) fault 1 = Aqua Sensor (?Sensotronic?) fault 4 = Filling fault F = Filling fault (display occurs during wash, not test) To check for heater, high limit or flow switch problems, start testing until heating starts. Using a meter with a current coil, measure current going into dishwasher. If current is ~ 11 A, then heater, high limit and flow switch are OK. If current stays at ~ 1.5-2 A, then heater, high limit or flow switch are faulty. If water level switch (f1) has failed (opened), display will show fault code ?4″ and unit will continually fill and drain where testing won?t be completed. If flow switch (e5) has failed (opened), display will show ?0″, water won?t heat (to 150?F) and water won?t stop circulating. If NTC probe (f2/f4) has failed (opened), display will show fault code ?8″ immediately and testing will end shortly after water has started circulating.

My maytag neptune washer stop washing with 10 minutes left to go.


If your machine is a FAV6800AWW or FAV9800AWW the (upside down u and f) may be a “NF” for no fill error. The washer has tried to fill the machine with water and has sensed a water fill issue. The control board has shut the wash cycle down with an “NF” error to the display because of excess time to complete the water fill portion of the wash cycle.
Will the machine complete the cycle with Hot water only or Cold water only? I would do a Quick Wash cycle just to test with an empty wash basket.
Regardless of the above test and assuming you have good water pressure for both Hot and Cold supplies to the washer I would do the following. Close the water source valves to the washer and remove the Hot and Cold hose connections at the back of the machine and check for clogged inlet screens. If the water inlet screens are free of restrictions I would go into Service Mode and turn on the Hot and Cold water valves on one at a time and make sure the tub will fill with about 2 inches of water in about 3 minutes in service mode. Check both Hot and Cold inlet valves individually see page 16 of the SM Board Output Test, enter service mode and do the function test for both Hot and Cold Water Valve’s. If the inlet screens are clean and you have water fill restrictions in service mode we may need to look at replacing the water inlet valve assembly. You can turn on the drain pump in service mode to empty the tub or just start a wash cycle and the machine will empty the tub.

Why does it flash F 24 when i push the button to wash??


F24 is a water temp sensor error. If the sensor reading is not within specs during the water heating portion of the wash cycle this code will come up.

1) water was too cold or hot when it filled the washer.
2) you have a bad or unplugged connection of the thermister..
3 you have a faulty thermister..

hope it helps

Overflowing water


If the water comes out when filling, check your water valve by unplugging the washer when it is filling. If the water still runs, replace the valve. If the water stops, check the small tube that goes from the water pressure switch (in the consul) to the bottom of the tub. This must be connected without any holes or obstructions. If this is ok, replace the water pressure switch.
