  1. My Whirlpool dishwasher won’t cycle. There is a 1 on the panel and the rest of the buttons don’t work. The cancel won’t work and none of the other buttons work. We tried to reset and that didn’t work. This is brand new.

  2. Wdt750sahzo model. My whirlpool dishwasher just quit working. It will fill and drain with no problems. I went in depth to make sure the drain and hoses were not plugged, cleaned everything out. No issues there, no broken glass etc. It will fill,,,, after about two minutes it will make a buzzing noise, that quits within a few seconds, then it drains. Then it refills again, assuming wash cycle. It will eventually drain. How do I tell if it is a circulation wash motor, or a electrical board? Can I run diagnostics off the control panel.

  3. Are you able to tell me what the multimeter should read for a faulty whirlpool thermostat? Heating element checked in fine. I just don’t know about the thermostat. Tired of my dishwasher not drying my dishes or using hot water to wash.
    Thank you

  4. WDF540PADM Whirlpool – Start Cycle as normal, fills, heats, dispenser for washer tablet opens and drains, the sprayers do not even rotate and they are not blocked – I have tried normal mode, sensor mode, I have turned off the breaker for 5 mins, still not working. This washer is not even 6 months old. The clean light has come on – I have removed the filter and washed thoroughly, ensured there is no food in the filter hole. At a loss. Thanks
