Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1050SS Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Reset code I recently had a problem with my dishwasher that required me to use a reset code on my control panel. I can no longer find the manual that tells me that code. I was wondering if anyone knows it as to save a tech call. The error occurs when the clean light flashes. We have checked the heating element and the tech told us there is no problem there, we just need to reset the machine. The error has occured again, but this time because I tried to run the machine right when we came home from vacation and the hot water tank was not turned back up yet. Thank you.

    Thank you so much. It worked. I was unable to access the kick panel, because of a stripped screw. I am going to fix that. I just needed to run my dishwasher as it was full at the time and did not leave me with much to use!

    Hey I had the same problem with my whirlpool dishwasher! It was not working when I tried to put it on the normal cycle. I tried the suggestion to reset the control panel and it worked!! Yipee!! I don't run the dishwasher often and was wondering if that was the problem? Or does it have to do with my hot water temperature? I would like to know. I don't have the model because my dishes are cleaning!

    It Worked! Our dishwasher keeps failing and the finished light just flashes but won't run. The technician came out and did the diagnostic test and it ran, but then stopped again after a few loads. I just now punched in the code and it reset! Thanks!

I believe the reset sequence is accomplished by pushing 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. Let me know if this helps.

    If not, there should be a tech sheet that came with the dishwasher located behind the lower kick panel under the door. This sheet includes all diagnostics codes and troubleshooting diagrams.

How to reset control board on kitchenaid dishwasher

Check to see if there is a manual behind the bottom panel. It should tell you what that error code is. It may be the heater is not working or some other issue. You will have to repair the problem before this will stop.

No power to control panel


Reset the panel. Shut off power to the dishwasher, and then turn it back on. This may cause the panel to reset, which may fix certain electrical problems.

Check availability of the control panel part. Find your panel's part number in the user manual or online. Some panels for older models are no longer available. If you are sure the panel is at fault, order your replacement part.

Turn off the power before working on the panel. You can unplug the dishwasher or turn off the circuit breaker for it. Confirm that the power is off before continuing.

Follow your manual to remove the old panel. Note the settings, jumpers and wiring of the old panel before removing it. Take a picture with a digital camera to help your memory.

Find your dishwasher's tech sheet. A tech sheet is usually included inside your dishwasher. You must remove the face plate and reach up inside the dishwasher to find it. This sheet has technical information from the manufacturer for your dishwasher.

Follow your manual to install the new panel. Try not to generate a static charge around sensitive electronic equipment, or the new panel may be damaged. Check the old panel to confirm any jumpers or settings.

Restore the power to the dishwasher. Run through the test sequence for your panel, if applicable. The instructions will be on the tech sheet. Load the dishwasher and do a test load of dishes.

I have a whirlpool DU943PWKQU, first about 6 months ago all the push buttons except light wash stopped working. Now this week it started giving me problems starting all together at first I resolved by...

It seems to be the program controller and you will have to get this checked. Remove the power off for some time and reset it back . If the programs are not responding then you will need to check from the power cord to the control panel to see if this is working and can give hte output with the required inputs when the program is selected.
So does the water go in , if not the controller is faulty.

My Kenmore dishwasher model 665.17604301 has the LOCK ON light on and the dishwasher won't run. How can I turn the lock off?

The LOCK ON can be turned on or off by pressing and holding the AIR DRY button in for 4 seconds. This feature is used to prevent accidental use of the dishwasher, and/or small children from manipulating the control panel. These instructions are on page 15 of the Owner's Manual. If you no longer have a manual, you can download or print a FREE copy at managemylife.com.

If you still require assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Dishwasher does not light up, no power to LED switches

If the model number you listed this question under is correct, there is a thermal fuse (also known as a bi-metal) located inside the control panel of the dishwasher. The part number for the thermal fuse replacement is W10258275.

If you type in your model number you can utilize the exploded view parts diagrams at pcappliancerepair.com, appliancepartspros.com or searspartdirect.com to assist you in locating the part. The fuse is listed as item 6 under the "Control Panel Parts" section.

To replace the fuse, follow these steps:

1. Make sure the dishwasher is unplugged or the breaker is turned off.

2. Open the door and remove only the top screws directly behind the control panel.

3. Remove the protective cover from back of the control panel to expose the main control board.

The thermal fuse should be mounted to the control board. If you remove it and take a resistance check, it should read close to 0 ohms, if good. If bad, replace as necessary.

If you no longer have an owner/operator manual for your dishwasher, you can go to mangemylife.com and obtain one. Just type in your model number under the "Manuals" link and your owner's and installation manuals are available in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.

If you need a troubleshooting guide, all these appliances have a technical data sheet inside them that qualified repairmen refer to. The tech sheet includes all troubleshooting data and wiring diagrams. You can access it usually by removig the lower toe panel under the door. If its not located directly behind the panel, its usually located under the wash tub. Some manufacturers place the tech sheet behind the inner door panel.

If you have any questions about this repair, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

The control panel of our GE Triton is not working. Is there a reset button?

Triton is usually trouble-free, however there is no reset button. Depending on the model and series, there may be a code (that is: a combination of panel buttons to push that will bring the control to a zero entry level (also known as default level). This would be in the owners manual under trouble shooting or problem with the appliance.
The other option that works many times is: disconnect power to the unit for 2 minutes. This will help the control to start its logic from the beginning. Then turn power on and try the machine; this will tell you if the control now responds. IF NOT , you have an 80% chance that a new control panel is needed. Welcome to the wonderful world of electronics. Its great when all is working, but ohhhh so tempermental.
Goodluck, Macgivor

Dishwasher PLD 3465 REC I cannot reset the display panel. I took the kickplate off which was supposed to have the code for the reset but it had nothing related to reseting the display panel. It is stuck on...

Putting the unit into service mode will reset the the display. Look at the instructions behind the front panel. If the unit fills and does not wash, the wash motor may not be working.

Error code 2H

The control panel needs to be replaced (indicated by the "2H" error code displayed at the start of the cycle).
BTW - The number 1 displayed at the end of the cycle indicates the cycle has timed out (i.e., it doesn't mean 1 minute remaining). Hence the continued running of the unit. Until you replace the control panel, you'll have to manually cancel the cycle at this point.

Euroart dishwasher error message

I have the manual for this dishwasher an error code 003 means "longer heating time, but not reaching required temperature" and the possible cause is written as "Malfunction of temperature sensor or heating element". Hope this helps.
