Whirlpool ADP5966 washer tablet stiil in door

When I run through the cycle, the dishwasher tablet remains in the tablet door (but in a mush) and has not washed the dishes. The door for the tablet seems to be operating and when you close it at the beginning it locks into the latch. Any suggestions as to the fault.

    similar problem - but find that after cycle the connection to the spary arm has come away and I have to slot it in again. How can I stop it coming out? If it does need cleaning - how do I remove it to clean?

Probably that spray arms are not rotating - to check, open the door when in operation and see if arms move. if not moving, usual cause is debris in spray arm jets. (arms only rotate thro water coming out of angled jets at end.) remove arms and clean for which you need patience

My whirlpool washer part no.387298 continues to run water even after the load is full. "There must be a sylinoid sticking or the trickle of water would stop.

The water valve under the unit could be stuck, one test you could perform is to unplug the dishwasher to see if the valve is the problem. when you remove electricity from the unit it should close he valve. if it remain open, its jammed and would need to be replaced. Hope this helps.

My whirlpool dishwasher will not start. It beeps, drains & flashes Err4 on the screen.

If you are using tablets that have rinse aid as well as rinse aid, it causes to many bubbles, these get sucked down the two little outlets (located at the bottom of the dishwasher door, easy to see if you open the door completely) and make the water level in the base seem higher than it actually is which triggers the over flow button. Now to fix it is SUPER hard....NOT! Just pull out your dishwasher, and tip it back slightly. The water stuck in the base will trickle out...not much but will take 5-10 mins. Then turn it on, run on a rinse cycle to be sure its all gone!

Tablet drawer,dispenser wont open at all

Hi, well you we need to check the ribbon cable in the door lining to make sure that none of the cables have been broken with the movement of the door. If they are fine then you should replace the dispenser unit if you are getting 240v to the dispenser solinoid.
Get back if you have further problems...................?

one of 2 things, either you have a bad door switch/latch assy and its not recognizing the door closing, or up have a "stuck keypad" preventing proper operation in which case youll need to replace the keypad/console. if you remove the lower acess panel there is a "tech sheet" explaining different faults and checks for your issue
