    Angry WDF760SADM0 Whirlpool gold - wash wont work

    Model Number: WDF760SA
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 1-5 years

    Hi there.

    Our whirlpool gold dishwasher which is just over two years old has recently started acting up.
    Strange part is that sometimes the unit works completely fine and then a couple days later it doesn’t work.

    The machine seems to function fine EXCEPT for washing.

    When you turn it on it begins filling water then stops when full. There is a clicking noise but the washing does not begin and the time on display counts down but nothing is washing.

    Have tried changing to all kinds of different cycles and that does not help.

    There is nothing flashing or beeping....just says WASH on the display in blue.

    Reading on this forum it was recommended to do diagnostic test. We did that.
    At the end of the test there is error codes F- and E-
    At the very beginning of diagnostic test there was error codes F8 and E2

    If it is working sometimes and not the other....is there an easy solution to keep it running all the time?

    Hoping to fix this ourselves. Any advice you could give would be much appreciated.

    Hi,

    Its mostly likely a bad wash motor, this has become a common problem as of late, many members here have reported the same.

    Look at post #7 here: FIXED 665.13472N411 What to check on why it only washes about 5% of the cycle.

    I'd first check to see if your getting 120 volts to the wash motor when it should be in the wash cycle. His Kenmore 665 made by Whirlpool uses the exact same wash motor yours does.

    Take the wire connector off the wash motor and use a multimeter to see if yours is getting 120 volts when it should be washing, if so and it's not running order the wash motor below.

    Here is the wash motor assembly you can order:
