Having problems with your Whirlpool DU960PW Dishwasher ?

Lost Power We always run the unit before bed on the delay timer. I heard it kick on last night. When we woke up this morning I first noticed that the clean light wasn't on. Then I noticed that the dishes were still very damp. Lastly it has about a inch of water laying in the bottom of it. It appears that it just lost power during the cycle. What are some areas I may trouble shoot before calling in a repair person. Thanks

Greetings. I have a Fisher & Paykel dishdrawer - the top drawer appears to have lost power mid cycle and the lid has not retracted - no led display - no response from the buttons. The bottom drawer functions ok. I have tried turning the power off at the wall for 30 seconds and on again. I have tried swapping the top and bottom controllers and the bottom still works but the top does not, so the controllers must be ok Not sure where to find the model number sorry. Any suggestions?

The last 2 times I emptied my dishwasher, I noticed a small puddle of water in the bottom that does not appear to have drained. The water looks clean, but is just laying there. Does this mean the drain is clogged and if so how do I unclog it?

We purchased an expensive top of the line Fisher and Paykel 2 dryer dishwasher when we did a total Kitchen rehaul over 1 year ago. We have been noticing water sitting in the bottom of the bottom drawer that smells like sulfur dioxide and now see water is making its way through the maple cabinet to below the sink. None of the plumbing under the sink is leaking. We also purchased a Fisher Paykel gas oven/range at the same time. We notice the oven does not appear to close completely with a tigh

Asko 1996 appears "dead".....no lights flashing, won't respond to repeatedly pushing on/off button. Some water left in the bottom...siphoned it out, cleaned filters, no blockage there. Almost like it's not getting electricity, but breaker is on. Noticed this when I went to empty clean dishes, and noticed that detergent hadn't dissolved and dishes weren't clean and about a gallon of water was still in the bottom.....

Whirlpool dishwasher: Model DU920PWKT0; 8 years old Lately, have noticed not full drainage of water at end of cycle... about 1 inch standing (thus 2 inches at the sump). Glasses have had noticeable film on them. Ran the rinse cycle a number of times to explore problem. When I interrupted the cycle, the water on the bottom was soapy, yet no new soap had been introduced. I even colored the water "left" in the tub to see if it was replaced by fresher water.

Bosch APEXX model number SHY99A05UC/14 lost power. Power input line appears to have arced (white power line and wire nut show signs of stress). The power breaker did not throw at the junction box. Already cut back wire and re-attached new wire nut along with replacing the breaker at the junction box. Still no power. There are no other visible signs of power stress or water damage underneath the unit or inside the doo panel.

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?

My du943 dishwasher will not power on....it looks like it lost power after the dishes were washed and before the water drained. The fuse is not blown, the power box underneath the unit appears ok, and I checked the thermal fuse after reading other posts with the same problem. What to do from here?

It appears that water is not running through the dishwasher or that the sprayers are not working correctly. There doesn't appear to be a clog. However, I did find a round rubber "washer" (I think that is what they are called) laying in the bottom of the dishwasher - where does this part go. It was working fine until this wash. The heating element works fine but like I said it appears that something may be wrong with the spray tower. Please advise Model number of Hotpoint: HDA3420Z01BB T

Hi, I have an LG LDS4821 dishwasher and it appears to stop working properly. The dishes don't seem to be cleaned at all. It seems like the spray arms are not spraying the dishes as the dishes are still dry/dirty after a normal wash cycle. I did notice that the detergent was used during the wash, and a trail of white residue was at the bottom of the tub. I can hear water pumping into the dishwasher, but when I opened it during a wash cycle, there was a puddle of water at the bottom of the

I have a Kenmore, Stock 15649, approximately 14 - 15 yrs old that worked fine until the past few days. The upper rack doesn't appear to be getting any water, as bowls and glasses are still dirty after being washed. It appears as though water would spray from the bottom, through a "nozzle" in the middle of the lower rack, then go to an arm located underneath the upper rack. I haven't noticed any obstructions in this path that would inhibit the water from spraying. Any suggestions (outsid

Kitchenaid dishwasher - small pieces of food are left on otherwise clean dishes. Water level comes to about 1 inch below heater coil. I ran it without dishes (or soap) and added about a quart of water so that level came to about 1/4 inch below heater and that's when I noticed food pieces on drain surfaces (nylon filter under bottom spray arm unit and circular plastic "trap" surrounding it). Spray arms holes are clear and water is hot.


It sounds as if you figured the solution out. The holes in the spray arm(s) get plugged by small debris, (tooth picks, seeds, bits of plastic like candy wrappers, etc) and the water does not reach the dishes to wash and rinse effective ... Dishwashers

GE GHDA485N 10CS Dishwasher that has standing water in the bottom after the cycle completes. I pulled it out and reconnected power and ran a rinse cycle. I could see that water was pumping out the clear drain pipe but there was still about an inch of standing water in the bottom. Any thoughts as to what part has failed. Does the system use a water level switch or a timed drain cycle to determine when the water has pumped out. If it is a timed cycle could a slow drain cause the problem. Thank you

Yes, it sounds like it is time to have the Kenmore Service man over to reseal your dishwasher to keep that soapy water inside where it should stay. Like any rubber product, gaskets degrade over time, and exposure to caustic dish-cleaning products do ... Kenmore Dishwashers

I own a KUDS01FLSS3 KitchenAid dishwasher. The lights on the control panel do not come on and a cycle can not be started. There is about an inch of water in the bottom of the dishwasher basin and it looks like the previous cycle did not complete. I have checked the wall outlet that the washer is plugged into and the washer is receiving power from the wall. And ideas? My next thought was to take the door off and check the power supply running to the door panel and control panel.

My Kenmore Diswasher (Mod # 665.17842400) has crapped out again. Towards the end of a cycle, the power seems to have been lost. There is now water in the bottom, and the user interface won't come on. 2 months ago I replaced the user interface and the magical board it connects to to solve a start button problem. I checked the power coming to the washer and it is live.


There is a thermal fuse on the control board. It protects in a overheating problem or sometimes when there are to many appliances on the same circuit that creates a high amp draw, that melts the fuse not actually blowing it like a short. Check your d ... Kenmore Dishwashers
