Is there a diagnostic test that can be run from the controls of the dishwasher?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 3 months ago

1 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 key presses.

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

After the unit fills with water do you hear the water circulation pump running at all ?

and it never cycles back on ?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
no, eventually it pumps the water out and yet the door has the soap still on it as it has not cycled or rinsed like it should
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 3 months ago

ok so if the circulation pump is coming on at all it is not an issue with the pump .

It has to be an issue with the control board that powers the circulation pump .

I recommend replacing the control board .
