I have had my whirlpool - Quiet Partner 3 for 1 year and 4 months( off warranty of course). I also had power outage for 3 hours. The dishwasher would never come back on. I tested main volt coming in. No issues it's 120. I'm trying to sort out the next step. No lights and no power. I have read several reviews to check. One I'm concerned about is the door latch switch, the one on the right tested 120v. The switch on the left was .1 no reading. should that part number 8269209 have the same 120 v current on the test? Do you think this is this issue? thanks
You will want to check on the control board for 120 vac between P2 and P6. If there is not 120vac then you want to do a continuity test on the thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse has no continuity then it needs to be replaced. If there is 120 vac to the control board then the control board is bad and needs to be replaced. When checking the door latch, the switch with black wires should have 120 vac and the switch with white should not have voltage as this is the neutral side.
