Whirlpool Dishwasher WDT970SAHVO won't run

Dishwasher will not turn on after choosing your cycle. You can select your cycle the time for normal wash shows 3:15. You then hit start and you get the 4 second count down to close the door. It latches but the unit does not start at all and on the time you see it went down to 1:30 and it continues to count down fast and just goes blank. Is it the control panel?

SOURCE: Electronic controls don't count down properly

Your problem is the electronic control board and unfortant that you cant repair or even get parts for it . Only if you get the whole control board will you fix your problem assy unless you find a good appliance man that repairs electronic control boards

SOURCE: problems with Whirlpool dishwasher model GU1500XTKB0

will these units (silo and jtrip) start back on their own? if so, it is likely they are heating the water.
otherwise it sounds like a logic board, unless there is a defective door switch or sensor issue.
electronics seem to be a recurring problem with whirlpool.
i would ask whirlpool (electorlux) to either buy it back or fix it.
good luck

This is very likely due to a bad main electronic control board but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. If possible use the meter and the wiring diagram to check input/output voltages looking for discrepancies between the diagram and the actual meter readings.

I replaced the heater element on mine and that fixed the problem.

If it's under warranty, get someone to look at it. Probably a bad switch or sensor in the unit, could be something simple, and they're not hard to open up, but the soap dispenser mechanism has to be reassembled (it often falls apart upon taking the door apart). Last resort is the appliance serviceman. New house? New dishwasher? Warranty? That's your best option.

Kenmore elite dishwasher - setting the default wash


Select the desired cycle. If you want to run the last cycle that
was completed, you can simply press START once to show which
options you used, then press START again to start that same cycle.

When i push the start button,it doesn't light up and start. The normal cycle and the other cycles lights work but it won't start. If i push hi-temp wash and heated dry several times, all lights will come...


i would replace the key pad it sounds like since everything else works.. so you hit the normal wash and start the dishwasher sits there for a min or two and turns off.. Its not recognising the start button

Intermittent problem, unable to select normal wash cycle/start


restart curcuit board sequence

push start hold down air dry and start until lights blink and machine starts then it should work normal

most dishwashers have an instruction booklet behind the botton panel that is nearest the floor you wll have to remove the panel it has a couple of screws. the booklet should be there unless installer took it.
If you omly replaced the front panel board then you may have to replace the circuit board inside the door. It works like a mother board in a computer. Good luck

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Problem


there is no real way of checking the keypad. Not with a meter but if you push normal wash for example and it does not respond this usually means that you have a bad keypad

Won't start, can't change wash selections


hi there,

can you tell me if you can hear the motor running? if not
did you trip the house breaker? if not
can you open the door? if not
it's the door latch; if yes
is there water on the bottom of the dishwasher? if yes
you are not draining and the dishwasher lost power; if not
the timer is not advancing to the next cycle

let me know.

Cleaning Cycle goes twice around or more before completing cycle?


Ours did that too. I figured ou that it was because I was putting it on ultra wash by hitting normal wash + high temp, that automaticly sets it to Ultra wash. If you just set it to normal wash and hit start it should only do one cycle.
