Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP931 has stopped working. It stopped in the middle of the cycle with 2 to 3 inches of water on the floor of the compartment. I mopped out the water and tried to restart the dishwasher. The green "on" light now comes on when I press the start button. but nothing happens (no motor comes on,no water enters).Repeating the above action several times does not help the washer to restart even though the other function lights will come on when the knob is turned. saturn1914

Hi,

Whenever you see such symptoms, Time for you to investigate it properly. Check the below guide :-

\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Power from the house\015\012\015\012Is\015\012there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test,\015\012because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical\015\012circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a\015\012blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

\015\012\015\012\015\012Door switch\015\012\015\012The\015\012door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher\015\012won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel\015\012cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective,\015\012you need to completely replace it.

\015\012\015\012\015\012Wiring\015\012\015\012Often\015\012the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and\015\012breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be\015\012repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the\015\012wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower\015\012part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken,\015\012burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade\015\012wire and connectors.

\015\012\015\012\015\012Timer or selector switch\015\012\015\012Although\015\012it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If\015\012so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these\015\012can be repaired.If problem still persists, it might be an issue with Control Board.You need to further investigate to confirm the same.

Hope i helped you.

This problem is intermitten. Kenmore 665 16765690. starting the dishwasher, I hear a motor running. I think it is trying to empty water, however there isn't any water. I will turn the time rotor around to the start again. Sometimes, when I do this the motor running sound has stopped and I hear gurgling sound of water entering. Once this happens, the cycle is good and does well. However, there are times, rotation the timer back to the beginning may take several times, up to about 20 times.

Dishwasher is less than a year old. Once in a while it will stop about 10 minutes into the cycle, then the display lights will blink. Sometimes it will stop and the lights wont blink so we will come back later thinking it is done only to open it up and there is water sitting in the bottom. Doesnt happen all the time but sometimes and yesterday happened about 10 times finally gave up. I can cancel and restart the cycle but the same thing happens.

I have a CDA CW494 dishwasher, which is a rebadged Whirlpool. The pump has been changed by a service engineer, using a Whirlpool part instead of the original, apparently it is superior. It seemed to work OK, but now the main jets only squirt for a short burst when the motor stops or starts. The rest of the time the motor can be heard running, but no water comes from the jets. Could the motor be running in reverse?


I would check to see if there is any blockage in the area of the dishwasher where the water collects to be recirculated through the pump back into the washer. It sounds as though the water isn't being allowed into the pump enough to continue the was ... Dishwashers

Kenmore Model 1590 Dishwasher, 1985, sitting unused since about 1994. Takes water into tub but never goes through any washing/rinsing cycles; water stands in bottom (I stop it below door level). A click, like a solenoid activation from the timer area, but motor never does anything. Removed the shroud covering what I assume is the impeller, which was stuck, but freed it by turning several times...made no difference. Suggestions??

I have an LG dishwasher, model LDS 5811ww. The machine fills with water, then stops filling when the error code IE comes on. I have cleaned the inlet filter and the whole inside of the tub, by taking apart the sump filter. There is good water pressure filling the tank. When I turn off the power and restart any cycle, the pump will empty the tank, then begin filling the tank again...until it is stopped by the error code IE again coming on.

I was told by a repairman that the seals around the motor swelled because I had gone on vacation for two weeks and not used the dishwasher. He charged $85 to turn the motor manually and restart the dishwasher. The dishwasher is 5 years old. Does this mean I can never leave for two weeks at a time and come home to a working dishwasher?


No. The unit most likely had some debris stuck in the macerator. The seals are water lubricated and its possible that some detergent dried between the seals. Detergent is a lot like glue when it dries. You are probably using the factory recommend ... GE Dishwashers
