Whirlpool Gold dishwasher
« on: February 16, 2009, 11:48:56 AM »

We purchased our dishwasher 'gently used' and now that we have installed it, the water remains lukewarm throughout the wash - if you open the door during a cycle no steam comes out.   (Water not heating)

The previous owner swears the dishwasher was working perfectly when it left his house.

Model Number: GU1200XTL icon

Was there a dishwasher in your house before this one? And was it heating ok?

What water temp is your water heater set?
130 degree minimum for a dw.Plus you may have to run hot water at the tap before the dishwasher starts.
Otherwise, probably a bad thermostat.Check your heater wires. One may have come off when you moved it.
