My Whirlpool Gold Series dishwasher keeps tripping my fuse.

My Whirlpool Gold Series...

My Whirlpool Gold Series dishwasher keeps tripping my fuse. Is there a way to determine where the problem is coming from?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is at least 4 years old. The sticker says mod WDT71PAYM0 SER F13815676

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

My husband is a handyman. If possible, he will do the work.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No. Just trying to determine if it is a job we can do ourselves, and where to start looking.

House fuse at the box
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No thanks.

ok if the no thanks was for a phone call prompt I did not send it to you that is done by the web site NOT I .

And since you say it is the house fuse that is blowing can you tell me how long approx does the dishwasher run before this fuse pops?

And what amperage is this fuse?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
The dishwasher seems to run its entire cycle. When I go to turn it on again, it gives me an blinking error light. When I turn the fuse off and back on again, then I can run the dishwasher.Do you need additional information?

what light is it that is blinking?

If it is the clean light how many times is it blinking before it pauses and starts all over again.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

and the unit is NOT tripping the fuse your just powering the unit off and rebooting the electronic control board .

Its the clean light. Not sure how many times it blinks. I know it is just a few. I will have to run the machine through its cycle again to find out how many times it blinks. So, it sounds like you think the problem is with the electronic control board. Is that something that can be repaired/replaced or do you think it would be better to get a new machine?

no It is NOT an issue with the control board.

if the clean light is blinking you will need to run a diagnostics

To invoke the Diagnostics Cycle, perform the following while in standby:

■ Press any 3 keys in the sequence 1-2-3-1-2-3- 1-2-3 with no more than 1 second between keys.

■ The Service Diagnostics Cycle will start when the door is closed

Then count the blinks .

It should blink a number of times ,pause and blink another number of times .

Once you tell me the number of times it blinks before and after the pause then I can tell you what the error code is for!

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Done..5 and then 2.

Thank you the error code of F5-E2 means Control programmed to not start if it suspects the door switch is stuck closed. Control looks for the door switch to open between cycles. ■ Customer didn’t open the door between cycles or door switch contacts stuck closed.

If you turn the dishwasher on after resetting the fuse .and open the door will the unit stop when you open the door?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
