Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

The clean light is on we can not start the washer


Answers :

It may be a heat issue. It may not be heating up properly and that will cause it to not start. You may need to reset your panel. It depends on what dishwasher you have, but on the internet, type in your dishwasher number and the word reset. There should be something out there to let you know what buttons you push to reset it. For instance some Whirlpools are hit the Heated Dry button, then the Normal, then Heated Dry button again then Normal button again - push in a sequence and that will start diagnostics and reset the machine. Other Whirlpools are similiar, just find it on the internet. That should reset it, but you still have to find out why it did that. Make sure you turn on the hot water faucet in your sink and get the water as hot as you can before you start your dishwasher. Improper heating can cause it.

I have a kitchen aid dishwasher that is stuck on the clean cycle. It will drain water, but no water seems to be getting into the washer. If i push the start button, cycle will not start. The clean light is the only light that will stay on. the other lights will go on, but they eventually go off without starting the cycle. Is this the thermal fuse???

My Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050RES2 gets stuck in a rinse cycle. The light on the front will be lit "clean" but the bottom of the washer is full of water. Opening the door does not turn off the "clean" light. For me to get it to run, I have to unplug it, plug it back in, push the start button until the ?washing? light comes on. I then push the start button once more and the dishwasher will begin to drain. I open the door as soon as I hear the water stop draining into the sink drain. This

I have a Whirlpool ADG937 dishwasher (9 years old) which will not complete a 65c wash cycle. It starts Ok and runs for a long time but then continually bleeps, when I open the door the programme indicator light is on the rinse cycle. If I reset the programme to 65c it may do the same or occasionally it will finish the cycle. I have tried salt top-up, descaling and filter cleaning all to no avail. Is the programmer faulty (can I bypass it?)or should I replace the washer?
