Customer Question
Hi, For the second time in...
Hi,
For the second time in four years my dishwasher stop working on thanksgiving I have a Whirlpool WDT790SAYW.
It started two days ago by going on by itself after dinner one night.It did it twice in a row and it stopped doing it once I left the door open.I disconnected it from the wall for a few minutes and it seems to be OK. I did a was the next day.Today, it would not start at all.I did all the resetting mentioned on the web and I heated up the controls.First The lights on the panel will go on and of, once I push the start button.Then nothing will happen.Then I closed the door and it started working without water.Then I was able to set my wash but once I push the start button the lights went off.What do you thing is the problem?Thanks.Bob

Bob, try to reset it by pressin any 3 buttons on the console in order 1,2,3 1,2,3 1,2,3 within 8 secs...do not use Power Or Cancel...if done right all the lights will light up. Then press Cancel and try it.

All I ask is please select the 5 STAR rating at the top of your page before leaving otherwise I receive ZERO credit for assisting you. BONUSES are always appreciated...Thanks and you can come back anytime for free followup questions & Happy Thanksgiving!
