Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

I own a whirlpool gold model #GU980SCGQ3 . After the rinse cycle the dishwasher stopped . The water has not drained out and nothing on the control panel works when you press the buttons. The breaker did not blow on our main fuse panel in the house. Something similar happened a year after we bought it and the electrical panel had to be replaced under warranty. Is this the same problem? or something different?

My Samsung DMR77LHS dishwasher has lost power completely near the end of a cycle. About an inch of water remains. I have power to the unit. I checked the 15 amp fuse in the unit - it had blown. I replaced it, but still no luck. The fuse is not blowing, but there is no power to panel. Nothing happens when you hit the power button - no lights or anything. Unit acts as if ther is no power at all. I have seen similar posts. Any thoughts?


Hi, whenever a fuse of that magnitude, or any fuse really, Blows, you should never just replace it, as to have any device, blow a fuse, trip a breaker, requires a major fault, they do NOT blow spontaneously ever. So you have had a major short circu ... Samsung DMR77LHS Tall Tub Dishwasher

My dishwasher so my dishwasher seemed to have quitworking during a cycle. like breaker triped or something. i checked the breaker and thats fine. it seams like its hard wired in though.

The dishwasher is built in and it seems decently old its a kenmore ultra wash and it has like 10 buttons for the differend cycles on the left and a

Dishwasher will not finish/start a cycle. The washer filled with water and during the cycle I heard a pop like someone knocked something over in the kitchen. I smelled an electrical burning smell. All the lights and the buttons work on the front panel, but when I try to start I hear an electrical buzz like it is trying to start, but nothing happens and after 3 seconds the electrical buzzing stops and the lights on the panel flash.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher (FDB2810LDC1) and a Er code appears in the display with the sensing, rinsing agent low, sanitized, and clean lights all flashing as is the child lock light. After seeing the Er code, I opened the dishwasher and thought I heard the detergent tray open but most of the detergent was gone with a little remaining. This has happened before and we have had the electronic panel replaced twice. Could it be something else like something blocking the detergent tray from op

DU1055XTPQ3 built in Dishwasher... panel has power "cancel" button when pushed you can hear the pump running but on wash the light blinks about 3 times and goes out, nothing happens. Is there a sensor or something in the panel that needs replaced? Jim

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.


The first thing I would check is if the dishwasher is properly connected\015\012 to power input. There is a junction box under the dishwasher. To get \015\012access to it you have to remove the bottom panel. The power cord should \015\012be connected ... Dishwashers

My smeg dwf 64 sse blew the main fuse yesterday. The machine was up to its rise stage on program 8 then the breaker went. Every time I switch the main back on it blew.

The electronic panel on the top of the door doesnt light up anymore and is unresponsive, when the power is turned on, the machine makes a sound like its running or draining or something, but nothing is happening. This all started after a potential electrical disruption following a power outage. Perhaps there is a fuse or some relatively easy way to fix this? or am I screwed and should just call a repair man. Thanks for your suggestions, Brodie

Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.

Hello. My dishwasher has been pretty perfect for four years. When my house water softener ran out of salt, I added rinse aid and salt to the dishwasher for the first time. I subsequently added salt to the softener. Recently [a few weeks later] the glasses have all come out cloudy, something that never happened before. Also, the cutlery has whitish marks on it which are impossible to remove. I would love some help on this. Many thanks, Terry


Try cleaning the machine by adding white vinegar to the wash water (before the water-fill procedure finishes). Put your stained dishes and cutlery in with the wash to remove the hard water deposits. The combination of salt and rinse aid may have help ... Dishwashers

Kitchenaid Dishwasher model # KUDS25SHBS1 has started making noise. Noise happens when unit is draining so perhaps its the same mechanism that houses the grinder. Can definetly hear a clicking as something spins around to drain the unit.

Noise is getting louder as more draining cycles are being utilized (i.e. as we use the machine more). Anyone have
