I got a call for a dishwasher that stops after a few seconds of pressing start. When it stops the washing and add dish lights blink.

I was thinking it may be a bad door latch, but when it's run on sani-rinse it makes it through that cycle without problems. I'm not able to find the tech sheet.

Hi Brian,

Ok, on this model it has the problematic door vent, that can cause this problem.

Do this first--->Disconnect all the wire connectors to your door vent and see if it runs through a complete cycle.

Start reading what bigbuck said at post#18 here:

Your model uses the exact same door vent. If it runs through a complete cycle and everything is back to normal, then order and replace the door vent assembly.

Here it is for your model you can order:
WPW10469574 Vent


To access the vent assembly you will need a T-15 torx screwdriver: Remove 4 screws (long) across top of door, then remove 10 screws (short) on the sides, then the outer door panel pulls off.

Let us know what you find.
