Question about Whirlpool DU930PWS Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My wife and I just moved into our house and cannot get anything on the dishwasher to activate. We have checked fuses, lightswitches that might be wired to DW power -- nothing has worked. Is there a universal power switch I am missing?

Sounds like a power supply issue. Take off the lower panels below the door and look to the right side of the opening, you will see a little square steel cover. This cover is where your power comes into the dishwasher. Follow the line coming into the dishwasher, it will either be a power cord that leads to an outlet, or a regular power line coming in. IF it leads to an outlet, try plugging something into the outlet. If the outlet is under the sink, try switching the plug from the top outlet to the bottom one (or vice~versa). Sometimes the outlets under sinks are set up so that a garbage disposer can be plugged into one of the outlets that is controlled by a wall switch.
If you get no power to the outlet, and all of your breakers are on, look for a GFI outlet that may have been tripped. These outlets have the little "test" and "reset" buttons on them and often are wired in parallel so that multiple outlets are powered (and protected) by one GFI.
Lastly if you have determined that there is power to the outlet, remove the cover under the dishwasher and inspect the wire connections. I have found many machines that had poor connections causing the wire nuts to burn right off the cord connections.
Now if everything else checks out power wise, you may have a blown fuse located on the control board housing inside the console of the machine. Get the part before you disassemble the door. To access it you will have to remove all the screws around the inner door liner and separate the two halves of the door. The control board is in the top right corner of the door and is usually under a plastic cover. The fuse is a small white thing that clips to the control board housing.
Good luck! Hope this helps you out!

Position the spray arms in a certain position. Activate the dishwasher for a few seconds and then examine the position of the spray arms. If the upper spray arm has not moved, then either there is no water coming to the spray arm or the spray arm is clogged.

No power and its not the breaker.


Some dishwashers have a thermal fuse located behind the console attached to the main board It is always helpful to include model number off unit as Sears does not make any appliances, they just sell them made by other companies with the kenmore name on them. You could have a GE, Whirlpool, Frigidaire, etc....

I cannot be sure of the make/model - there is no power


It sounds like you have a bad controller which is an expensive part if it is over five years old. However, there is a recall on some Bosch dishwashers which involves replacing the control. If you call Bosch at 1-800-944-2904 they can tell you if your model is involved in the recall.

sounds like the fuse on the control blew. you can replace the fuse for around $20 or you can cut and splice the wires for free. If that doesnt work then you may have a loose conection in your junction box under the dishwasher.

Faulty Diplomat Dishwasher - tripping mains fuse


Hello,

My dishwasher a diplomat 12 program (hja8640) was doing exactly the same where every now and again when turned on at the plug it would trip. After engineers coming out several times and failing to fix it, they condemed it. New one was supplied, however did exactly the same thing. The electrician came back, checked the RCD power breaker and this was fine. It was then discovered that some dishwashers and washing machines send out a lot of earth leakage, combine this with other appliances on in the house can be enough to trip.

Soloution. The electrician removed the kitchen circut from the RCD breaker and intalled another breaker RCD just for the kitcehn loop, this therefore means that the kitchen has a seperate trip from the rest of the house, and touch wood, has solved the problem. This mind you has taken about three months to work out so i hope it saves you some time.

Always use a fully qualified electrician though.

Thanks.

Order a Non-Wood Countertop Kit GPF65Check electrical connection to dishwasher. All that moving around may have contributed to a poor connection. Test wire nut connections where the household wire connects to the dishwasher by holding wire nuts and tugging each wire to make sure they are firmly attached. Inspect incomming wire to make sure it has not been damaged.

Check for power with a tester at the junction box under the machine. If power check for a broken door latch switch.
