Whirlpool Dishwasher stops after filling with water
My dishwasher stops running after it brings hot water in at the very beginning. Sometimes, it will start and stop various times (I suppose, continuing on through consecutive stages, but I can't be sure what it's actually doing because it rarely ends with clean dishes) across many hours. Other times, it never gets past this initial intro stage.
A few times in the past, I had success at cutting the power at the breaker, and then it tended to work perfectly for a handful of times afterwards before it would start acting up again. This last time I tried to cut breaker, however, was unsuccessful, and now it won't get past that first stage (which I always have to hit cancel to drain the water, which luckily still works every time). --Funny but not, I broke the breaker switch flipping it too many times, so I had to replace that today.--
By the way, it opens the soap tab after 5 or 10 minutes, even if it's not running/washing. So, some aspects of the "wash" cycle are working, I guess.
All panel lights are working and displaying on top.
Only 3 years old.
Thanks for any help!
Is dit een goede vraag?
Could you try referring to your user manual and see if it is in the troubleshooting area?
My dishwasher would not start, the buttons all seemed to work except the start button. I found online that the most common issue is the door latch - it was $17 plus shipping and tax - replaced it - still broke. Found error codes to indicate a stuck button (should've done that first) So I ordered what I thought was the touch panel - it was just the plastic parts and not the 2 little computer boards underneath. So I pulled the control panel on my dw apart - there are little buttons on those boards - how they work is kind of annoying. There is a tiny copper disk that is shaped like a concave lens. The shape acts as a spring so if the little copper disk (under the start button) wears out or flattens out it will NOT work and the error code indicates a "stuck" button. I replaced the little copper disk with one from a button I know we wouldn't use (was "top rack wash" only) and left that button not working. This allowed the start button to function. Beware - the parts are tiny! I used tweezers to mess with it.
btw - in my post above I have a whirlpool gold series dishwasher model # wdt710paym6
I read thru the solutions and pushing the door firmer solved my problem and engaged the motor. I recommend others try that before ordering motor parts. Until I did that it would just fill up with water and drain without washing the dishes. This has been the easiest fix ever. Thanks for this forum!
this worked, thx so much! saved me time and money
