I have a 1.5 year old whirlpool gold series dishwasher.

I replaced the pump and motor assembly WPW10671941 because it stopped spraying water. After the install it cleaned and washed the dishes but I found the dishes to be soaking wet. This is an issue I was not having prior to the pump failure and install of pump motor assembly.

So, I have noticed while opening the door, the heating element does not seem to be getting hot. I have also noticed the jet dry container does not seem to be using anything and remains full. I also don’t know if I have noticed and steam coming from the vent motor at all through out the wash cycle?

Could I have messed something up during my pump assembly install that powers all of these?
That’s my last thought is, I messed up on the wiring harness or messed power up somewhere.

I have since replaced the heating element W10518394 and sensor WP661566.

I have also taken it apart and put it back together again about 10 times with no help.

Anyone have any suggestions please?

Hi,

Anytime you replace a part on these dishwashers you always have to run the SERVICE DIAGNOSTICS CYCLE, and let it run all the way through to reset it back to default.

Entry sequence: Press any 3 keys in the sequence 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3 with no more than 1 second between key presses. NOTE: Some models have replaced the “Clean” LED with “Completed.”
The Service Diagnostics Cycle will start when the door is closed.

■ Invoking Service Diagnostics clears all status and last run information from memory and restores defaults. It also forces the next cycle to be a sensor calibration cycle.

LET IT RUN ALL THE WAY THROUGH: Service diagnostic cycle will take about 23 minutes.

Do that, and report back.:)
