Our GU1500 Whirlpool Dishwasher will not start up? It

Customer Question

Our GU1500 Whirlpool Dishwasher will not start up? It appears somehow it's not getting any electricity. I check the electric switches, turned them off and on, but still no juice!

Hi, I'm Mike and I'll be glad to assist you. First check to see if you have a tripped GFCI in the kitchen. If none found, do you have a 2 wire voltage tester? If so, remove the kick panel and open the wiring box, then test for 120V.

Thanks, ***** ***** does GFCI mean?
Expert:  Mike G. replied 2 years ago.
It's a receptacle with test and reset buttons on it. They are generally on kitchen outlets and sometimes the dishwasher is connected to them. May or may not be, but should be checked.

Will check, thank you, Mike! The Dishwasher is 12 years old, so the cost of a service person coming out probably is not worth it...so, a good chance we're off to Home Depot!

I just replaced one myself. Got a great deal at Lowes. Boush with stainless steel interior for $400.
