    Default Dishwasher problems

    Model Number: GU940SCGZ2
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 6-10 years

    Help Please! I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Wash Plus with the following problem. It seems to wash and rinse fine, but stops when it comes time to drain. It just shuts off and leaves the water in the washer. It will drain out if you push the "drain" button, but when it's done draining it doesn't shut off, it runs through the entire wash and rinse cycles again until it comes time to drain again and then it stops, leaving the water in the dishwasher again. Is this a control board problem, or is there something else I can check out first. Thanks!

    Yes, it sounds like your control board is malfunctioning. I had a few do the same thing as few years back and I replaced the control on them and fixed each one like that.

    Here's the control board for your model you can order:
    Main Control Board 8530929 Order now for same day shipping. 365 day return policy.

    Remember when you order parts from the links I post you can return them within 365 days for a full refund, even if you installed them.
