Whirlpool Quiet Partner I Dishwasher will not start
I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner I Dishwasher and it will not start. I believe the issue may be with the locking mechanism. If I fuss with it enough, it starts. Has anyone experienced this issue? Is the issue truly with the lock? Is it easily replaceable? Please advise. Thanks.
You might want to see if the fuse (no. 4 in the diagram) on your mechanism is functioning and if the switch(no.10 in the diagram) is seated properly. I do not have your complete model number so I can only give you a generic Quiet Partner diagram. Check on here for more detail on that model. Hope this helps.
The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.
