Our Whirlpool is not even 18 mos. Old and stopped working. It will start the cycle, fill the tub with water, then just stall. The lights stay on, but nothing happens. There's no blockage with the drain hose, because it drains fine. Thanks in advance!

Hello Jon, thank you for your question. There are a few parts we would reocmmend testing first to determine if they have failed. They are the PartSelect Number PS11743423 Thermostat, PartSelect Number PS8260087 heating element, PartSelect Number: PS11770231 pump and motor and the sensor PartSelect Number PS12070543. If those parts are tested and are fine, the issue would most likely be with the electronic board. I hope this helps.

Even on high heat my dishwasher will not dry dishes at all. Dishes are dripping wet at end of cycle.

Hello Susan, Thank you for your inquiry. We have researched the model you have provided and we would recommend checking the following parts to fix your issue: the heating element, the high limit thermostat, and the door vent. You can test the parts with a multimeter. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, we have videos available to assist you. Also if you don't already use a rinse aid, we would recommend using one to facilitate drying. We hope this helps.

light goes on but will not fill or drain
For model number WDF520PADM7

Hi Michael, thank you for contacting us. We would recommend checking the door latch, part number PS11756967, to fix the issue. It is at the top of the dishwasher door and keeps the door closed when the dishwasher is running. If this is faulty, the dishwasher may not start the cycle. We hope this sorts out your problem!

Lost dishwasher brackets

My filters had completely clogged up with hard deposits and food left on the dishes after running the dishwasher.
My filters had completely clogged up and had not cleaned my filters at all which was a no-no.I had lots of food left on the dishes after running my dishwasher, so I took bothp filters out and replaced them no tools required. I won’t be using powdered or liquid detergent for my dishwasher anymore only pods and promise to clean my filters once a month, so hopefully that’ll help keep them clean. Very easy replacement even for an old woman.
