Wil, did it work before you replaced the door latch? What model number is your Whirlpool?

Wil, try to reset your dishwasher. To reset it, you will have to have the door open. It can not be latched. Press "Heated Dry," "Normal," "Heated Dry," "Normal" within three seconds of the first pressed button. Now close the door, this should reset your dishwasher. Hope this helps, good luck.

What if dishwasher doesn't have a button that says normal or heated dry?

by kristie2320

My doesn't light up at all and the reset didn't work any advice would be appreciated

by Tim Delp

Tried this and it worked!!! So glad to have something like this to refer to,

instead of calling the service man. Found out the hard way they don't know as much as I thought they would. From now on, I'm coming here first.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

On some newer models, you can push any 3 buttons in the following sequence: 1-2-3-1-2-3-1-2-3, with no more than a second between each button push. That will put the dishwasher in diagnostic mode. This is the case for our Whirlpool dishwasher bought in late 2014, which doesn't have dedicated 'heat dry' and 'normal' buttons. Rather, it has fewer buttons, each of which can be toggled through several states which include 'heat dry' and 'normal'. So the traditional method of pushing just those 2 buttons in sequence repeatedly didn't work for me. I only learned this new method by pulling off the plastic panel next to the floor, and finding instructions for repair technicians stored there in a plastic bag. It might be worth looking for such instructions stored under your model.

This was the correct answer for me. Thanks.

by Darren Johnson

is this with door open or closed

by Rob Owen

Thanks, This worked for me. I still don't know what the results should look like when the diagnostic runs and completes. I could not find the manual.

by Dave Cooper

This worked. The lights flash and it looks like it is running a diagnostic. But I have no way to interpret what the lights mean. Is there somewhere I can go to tell me what the lights are telling me?

by Dave Cooper

You are awesome! worked for me! Whirlpool model W10632083A

After reset, seems to be washing, but only lasted about 10 minutes. Totally did not do dry cycle. I usually wash on light load, and after pushing >heated dry>normal>heated dry>normal, closed door, and started on normal cycle. Did reset again, and waiting, and started on normal this time too.

This is what happened for me too. Still trying all the suggestions.

by phyllisgoodwin

I found out the hard way that the junk in the bottom of the dishwasher must be removed before the reset will work. The "sump assembly area" where the cutter is must be cleaned out first! You'll be surprised at all the junk in there!

I had the problem and used both methods. The only thing is the machine would act like it was about to wash then stopped. Anyone have a suggestion?

by MIKE R

This is my problem, too and didn't see a solution posted.

by phyllisgoodwin

Try cleaning out the drain area. Sometimes there is paper, glass or food build up that prevents the dishwasher from working properly. Then you can do a Reset.

I started a load last night, I tried to do a heavy wash since we had lots of plates and others in there, and this morning, found my washer, with water at the bottom, the lights flashing, so I pressed cancel, and now the control board does not turn on at all. I can do the heat dry/normal thing to reset, but nothing is working on the front panel?

Did I fry my front board? But it was working to tell me it stopped this am!!! HELP :-)

What kind of dishwasher is it?

The reset works fine but if you don't clean out the cutter area, the dishwasher will not work properly and you'll be right back where you started. Check You Tube ("what to do when the dishwasher won't clean") to learn how to clean out the sump assembly, the cutter screen and chopper arm area and then do a reset. Usually, the junk in the bottom of the dishwasher is what caused the dishwasher to not work properly so just resetting it won't resolve the problem.

I have the Quiet Partner IV. The only light on the panel is a green light next to the heated dry. I can't get it to reset. There is nothing else I can see wrong. Any ideas?

Yohhhoooooo! Thanks, thanks, and thanks. It works. The "reset" method. It was very frustrating for last couple days: A load of dishes in a family of 5 (young kids) and suddenly the dishwasher quits working. God bless
