Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
We have just installed our new dishwasher and it will not run. It beeps like it is on pause, but we can't get it to work. We are also unable to change the program. Thanks

Make sure the dishwasher door is firmly closed, press and hold the start pause button for about 5 seconds, this will clear the cycle, The try selecting a wash cycle and push start.
See if this helps.

Do a "key dance" between normal and heated dry , going bak and forth six times. this will rester the heater fault. That is the clean light flashing code. Now you have to find the cause. Most likely is that there were suds in the last cycle or the door doesn't close smoothly. If the door sttrikes the cabinet in any way it will cause that problem.

Whirlpool Corp. manufactures and sells dishwashers and other home appliances
under its own name, as well as under the brands Kenmore, Maytag and
KitchenAid. Whirlpool has been in business for more than 100 years.
Whirlpool dishwashers carry full warranties for one year, and limited
warranties for longer periods on some of the parts.
Not all issues with Whirlpool dishwashers require a service call from a dishwasher repairperson. You can solve some of these with the troubleshooting tips given below. Some dishwashing problems, however, cannot be solved yourself, but require a qualified plumber.
Has Your Whirlpool Dishwasher Been Recalled?
About 162,000 Whirlpool and Kenmore under-the-counter plastic tall tub dishwashers made by Whirlpool and sold between June 2004 and January 2005 were recalled because of an overheating problem in the wash motor. To find out if your dishwasher is affected, call Whirlpool at 866-769-7260. In the meantime, do not use it or try to fix it.
If your dishwasher is not included in the recalls, you might be able to repair it yourself.
If your dishes are filmy or spotty after they've been washed or you see that the detergent is not completely dissolved, the water temperature might be too low. First, check to see that the dishwasher is connected to the hot water supply. Although the dishwasher heats water automatically at certain times, it will not heat cold water enough throughout the cycle to work properly. Whirlpool recommends that water be 120 degrees Fahrenheit coming into the dishwasher.
If you're sure the incoming water is hot enough and you're using the correct amount of detergent, but you still have problems with spots on dishes or a dishwasher that won't fill, insufficient water pressure might be to blame. Water pressure must be 20 to 120 per square inch for proper functioning of a dishwasher.
If the dishwasher isn't draining well, you might need a drain air gap. This is an external part that keeps drain water from backing up into the dishwasher. Plumbing codes in some jurisdictions require the installation of a drain air gap.
To avoid dishes getting chipped in the dishwasher, make sure you load the dishwasher in a way that the dishes and glassware stay stable in the rack. Do not put delicate china or anything not known to be dishwasher-safe into the dishwasher.
If you see brown stains on dishes and on the inside of the dishwasher, it is probably because your water is high in iron. The remedy for this is rewashing the dishes, the first time without detergent. Put one to three teaspoons of citric acid crystals into the detergent compartment and run a full wash cycle. Next, run a normal dishwashing cycle with detergent.
