My dishwasher is acting quirky. Cycles get interrupted intermitently. The lights on panel go out when machine stops midcycle. Will come back on by itself and display the cycle its currently running. May stop more than a dozen times to get through the five cycles. Will not go into drying cycle. Water gets heated. Jets are working. When running, motor sounds normal. Control panel going bad? Is there any connections there that may have to be cleaned? Thanks
Answer Hello Dave,
I would check the door switches 3380654 first. If the unit isn't level or if the door is bent, the door switches will not both make electrically. If the door switches are making properly, I would next go to the electrical connections in the junction box on the bottom of the unit behind the kick panel. If the wire nuts are loose or discolored, the wire nuts should be changed. They should be tight enough you can't pull the wires out of them. If these check out good, the control 8530929 may be going bad.
10 year old whirlpool dishwasher- child lock light on and will not go through cycle. Tried holding energy saving button for 4 seconds to reset and no luck. Do you think I need new control panel and how difficult is this to install? Thanks
Answer Hello Jared. If holding the energy saver button for 5 seconds doesn't unlock the controls, I would discontinue power to the control for 10 minutes and try it again. If this doesn't unlock it, I would at that point change the electronic control 8530929. I hope this helps you solve your problem and have a great day!
