I have a Whirlpool model WDF750SAYW3 which fills with water at the start of a cycle, but the motor does not start. The spray arms do not spray water and therefore the dishes are not cleaned. I'm left with a pile of detergent at the bottom of the washer.

After filling with water, the control panel makes a clicking noise several times (4-5), but nothing else happens.

Other observations:
- The heating element works
- The dishwasher drains normally

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Yes, I agree with Rick.

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.

Check to see if your getting 120 volts to the wash motor when it should be in the wash cycle. His Kenmore 665 is made by Whirlpool, and uses the exact same wash motor yours does.

Take the wire connector off the wash motor and use your 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.
