Whirlpool Dishwasher
« on: September 28, 2010, 12:00:39 PM »

I ran a search and found no other thread on this subject or this model. This diswasher has had this issue once before and it started back on it's own (after 3 or 4 weeks). The unit cannot be turned (no power or green lights) on any washing cycle. The only power it has is if you push the "AIR DRY" or "CANCEL/DRAIN". The lights  for those come on and the motor appears to be running to those two commands. The remaining buttons do not work at all. If I try to run the diagnostics on it, it powers up after you it the "air dry button, then powers down after you hit it again i.e HIGH TEMP SCOUR/AIR DRY/HIGH TEMP SCOUR/AIR DRY. So I get no diagnostics using those commands as recommended in the tech page found inside the unit. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated, and a viable solution would be outstanding.  THX  MM

I would start by disconnecting power,then open the control console and un-plug,then re-plug all wires and harness connections.
Then try it again.
