Whirlpool Dishwasher acting as if there is no power to it

The dishwasher stopped running during a cycle and acts as if there is no power. I already checked the CB and the power cables in the circut box of the dishwasher and there is power to it. I have also shorted out each on of the switched on the handle and they both seem to be operating correctly. Any Ideas

    Whirlpool dishwasher DU1055XTPS3 acts as if no power. Still has water in it from last cycle. Circuit breaker is fine and I’ve verified power is getting to the dishwasher’s junction box; and no short within. Door appears to close and latch fine. Is there a fuse, or reset button? Anyone able to offer a diagnosis and/or solution? Also, good way to drain water other than shop-vac???

I had this problem just two days ago. For me it was the thermal fuse. On my dishwasher it is located on the main control board, at the top. It is white and has two wires going into to separate terminals. It says "Microtemp" on it. I used a small wire to short it and see if that was the case. Be careful though. There is also another fuse on the bottom of the dishwasher that looks like a little black cylinder with a silver cap, and two terminals coming out of it for wires. In our case that fuse was fine.

Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

Dishwasher shuts off mid cycle

Hi Ray.
i found this out.
The reason for the dishwasher to stop mid cycle is that the thermal fuse is shorting out because it is either fouled, dirty, broken, or loosely connected. If your dishwasher is older, the thermal fuse is used as a safety switch to stop the motor and circuit board when the dishwasher gets too hot.

I have smeg built in dishwasher. Acts like running cycle but i don't think it's getting enough water. the soap tables are not dissoved. before if opened door during cycle lots of water but now none

Check water inlet filter, check for blockage at the stop valve .

The rubber washer does come loose and blocks/limits the flow into the dishwasher. The fill cycle is on a timer and any restrictions in the water connection will under-fill the unit.
Hope this helps?


I have a whirlpool gu2400 dishwasher. The spring loaded soap dispenser door does not open during the wash cycle to release the soap.

Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor or a solinoid to release the door at a specific time during the cycle. So for proper cleaning the soap cup is nessesary . The part isn't that expensive and fairly simple repair.

Whirlpool dishwasher fe error code

I had this issue with a Whirlpool Dishwasher. I could move the water float valve up and down, and the machine would run a cycle before acting up again. I ran a dishwasher cleaner through it (The one from Finish) and they problem went away! I have always ran the Afresh dishwasher cleaner, but I guess it is not as good as Finish! Conclusion, if you can get it to run a cycle, then try using the Finish Dishwasher cleaner, and see if problem disappears.
