Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

My Whirlpool Quiet Partner IV has alternating flashing lights across the front panel where I make selections for the type of cycle. When these lights are flashing, the dishwasher will not operate. We have already replaced the circuit panel and the problem persists. We have shut off power at the circuit box several times with no success. Please help!

\015\012I would try cleaning the control panel ribbon cable connection.
\015\012If this does nothing, check the control panel switches with a meter as \015\012per the tech sheet.

\015\012Do not understand why the two control boards act differently and washer \015\012will not run.
\015\012I cannot explain why the boards act differently.
\015\012Why the washer does not run could be that you have a control panel \015\012problem.
\015\012
\015\012Connector Cleaning / Checking
\015\012Unplug the unit
\015\012Open it up
\015\012Remove the ribbon cable from the keypad to the control board at the \015\012control board.
\015\012Clean the edge connector.
\015\012If it is the type where there is not a connector just the insulation is \015\012removed, it can be cleaned with a pencil eraser. Do not use an ink \015\012eraser as it is too abrasive.
\015\012Check the tracks in the ribbon cable for hairline cracks. A magnifying \015\012glass helps here.
\015\012Would not hurt to clean the connector on the board. Use electronics \015\012contact cleaner or isopropyl alcohol and a tooth brush. Be gentle and do\015\012 not reconnect till all the solvent evaporates.
\015\012Reconnect everything and give it a try.\015\012

Control Panel won't let me hit the start button. The dishwasher is a little over a year old and is used at most once a week. The blue light on the bottom right of the dishwasher seems to no longer light up. The control panel will let me select the wash, but the start button and time indicator does not light up. Not sure if this a real defect and if just a simple exchange of the front control panel will fix the problem? Already tried resetting the circuit breaker and that did not help. Than

Whirlpool model DU960 - from 2001, I think. Stopped running mid-cycle and the cycle lights flash. Won't run. How to fix? If I press 'Cancel/Drain', it flashes that button light. If I press one of the wash cycles again, it turns on the pump for about 1 second, shuts off and the lights flash again. I tried turning off the circuit breaker and turning it back on, but it still won't run. Is this fixable? Do I need to call for service? Or, would I be better off just replacing it?

Dishwasher will not start when pressing the start button. Timer light flashed numbers and went off. None of the lights and buttons work. Circuit breaker in electrical panel is working. Does the on/off switch need replacing, or is it possible a mini circuit board is bad? Dishwasher installed in 2000 and is used on the average once per week.

I have a 8 yr old model 16879 that stops apparently during the drain cycle. At this point the lights on the panel flash in what appears to be a coded sequence. Pushing the cancel button seems to try to start the motor for draining but immediately shuts off. Do I have a controller problem or something in the motor/pump area? David

I have a KitchenAid dishwasher model KUDC10IXWH1 that has no control power. I have already verified that there is 120V at the control board. The unit kept the lights on after the cleaning cycle was done and I couldn't shut them off. I reset the electrical breaker and now nothing works, but the board has power. Please give any advice you might have. I was thinking of replacing the board, but I'm not sure if it is the board or the front control panel. Any way to tell?

My kitchen aid dishwasher will not start I replaced the interface control board thinking that was the obvious problem. When you go to set the dishwasher to start some of the settings don't always light up then when you push the start button the lights will flash then start but it's not flashing and won't start.
