My Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III dishwasher will not start. I have installed a replacement control board that worked for awhile. When it quit I put the old control board back and it worked for awhile with a portion of the lights on the control panel lighting up. After switching control boards back and forth, it will not work at all now. It will run through the diagnostic program (Normal, Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry) but after that the start button plus other buttons are not lit so it will

My KitchenAid KUDS01FLSS0 won't turn on when the "Start" button is pushed. Several months ago it began requiring multiple pushes to get it to start. All the cycle lights on the control panel work when pushed - except the "Start" button. Online & repair parts person suggested I replace the: - Tail Cable Ribbon; did not fix problem, then - - Electronic Control Board (interface) which also did not fix it. Should I replace the Electronic Control Board that is actually the part with the buttons

Whirlpool "Quietflight II" - Will not start. The button for "Delay" works, and the button for "Cancel/Drain" works. Pressing this button will drain the unit. No other buttons will work, however, and the unit will not start. Ideas? I've taken the control panel off and looked at it's guts, as far as I can tell everything looked ok (not burnt and no loose wires), although I am no electrician....


Have you tried testing the control panel with an VOM meter? You can press a button and test the wiring that would go to that particular circuit. See if you get a reading on the specific wire when that particular wire is pushed. Does sound like a cont ... Dishwashers

Dish washer 665.13592K600. Will not start. When door is closed you can hear the click of the latch then a relay on the control board. All buttons work except delay and start. You can push the cancel and drain button and the pump will activate. The start and delay buttons have no effect. Not sure if I have a control board or panel problem.

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad


This could be the 'fill switch', which is the level sensor. Could be a plastic tube that exerts air pressure into the tube as it fills, make sure it's clear and open. The dishwasher has a sensor that monitors the door being closed too. Some use a hig ... Dishwashers

KUDP01ILBS6 Kitchenaid dishwasher Doesn't work, except flashing lights on front panel. I have the normal light flashing. When I push any other button the cancel light starts blinking as well. I replaced the fuse, the main control board inside and it still doesn't work. Push button panel next fix? This is getting expensive. Could it be something minor? The troubleshooting papers didn't provide much guidance.

I have a Kenmore elite 13102 dishwasher touchpad that has begun to crack around the start button. Does this necessitate changing out the whole electronic control pad or is there a part that is the "overlay" to the control panel? The functions for each button on the panel work fine. LH

My Asko D1996 Dishwasher will not start. The control panel has 3 lights staying on - position #1, 6 and 7 and are unresponsive no matter what buttons are pushed - even after turning the power off at the breaker, the outlet and the on/off button.I've tried holding down the start button for several seconds to reset but this did not work. I have also cleared the drain, filters and removed any water and pushed and held the Start button to reset.

Have a 4 year old Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 74382. No problems at all until last week I went to start it and it would not turn on. Lights on the control panel were on with exception to the start light. I opened and shut the door to make sure it clicked and pressed the start button again and nothing. I tapped around the panel with the side of my fist and pressed it again and it began working. Well today different story I went to start it and it did the same thing. I tapped all over front of the

Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2-400-XTB7 Problem started with display cycling through delay times. (1 hr, 2hr, 3 hr and so on.) Was able to cancel that for short periods and then it would repeat the cycle. Was able to run dishwasher by pressing different buttons. Then it would start a cycle but did not run full cycle. Now control panel doesn't work at all. When buttons are pushed, lights do not light up and nothing happens. Is stuck in lock mode.

I have a Maytag QuietSeries 300 dishwasher. My original problem was with the control panel lights not coming on. Another repair website recommended replacing the circuit board. We replaced the board, but it did not solve the problem & the dishwasher would not work. Replaced the control panel. Lights come on, but when the start button is pushed "21" flashes on the time display. What do I do?

The hidden control panel has only about half the lights showing what function is pressed. A couple of days ago the washer would not start. The only function which would work was the far left sensor light. After trying to cut power and pushing other buttons, to no avail, we let the machine sit a couple days. It now works again with only half the lights on function pad working. It acts like there was a electrical short.

PLD2560LCC1 Frigidaire Dishwasher...Control Panel shows 65 minutes left on lower rack, works for about 1 minute, shuts down. None of the buttons work. I changed the control (major circuit) board, same problem. I wonder if it's the control "panel"? I took that off and looked at it. Seems okay, but could the problem. I've heard this model has control problems, but I'm not sure if they mean the major control board or the control panel that has the buttons.

DU1145XTP The buttons don't all work--for a while the normal wash and heated dry were the only functions that worked--now the start button doesn't work. I took the panel off and clicked the door switch and held it and got all the cycle buttons to light up except rinse only and only heated dry in the cycles would light up. The delay buttons don't work and neither does start. Also the panel seems hot.
