Whirlpool dishwasher
« on: December 29, 2010, 10:55:21 AM »
Have this dishwasher in one of the rental units,and it is taking a very long time to complete the wash process.It seems like it used to take about an hour and a half to complete the cycle,but now the tenant says sometimes about 3 hours.The tech sheet is missing so I need help in troubleshooting this thing.I have checked the hot water and if you let the kitchen sink faucet run before starting dishwasher it gets to 118 degrees.Can you provide a tech sheet and help me along?

Model DU1145XTPBA

That to me seems like it is in the door latch switches.
May the hinges of our friendship

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.

They had a bunch of trouble with em at one time. All them readings of yours seem to be associated with arcing switches.
