Whirlpool Dishwasher GU2400XTPS6 dead?
« on: October 21, 2007, 08:08:04 PM »

Hi!  First post here... My Whirlpool dishwasher won't start. When I try the diagnostic cycle, it cycles through fine, then once the diagnostic is done, it still won't start. It shows the two dashes in the display indicating a door problem; I took it apart and couldn't find anything obviously wrong with the latch or other door components. I even cleaned the micro switch contacts with no results. Any ideas?

Model Number: GU2400XTPS6 icon

Check both switches using an ohm meter. There is also a thermal electronic fuse behind the control panel you should check.
