Check the drain check valve "flap"?

March 2011


Customer Concern:

Dishwasher stops approximately 10 minutes into the cycle, “cancel drains” and goes directly to standby mode (off).



Testing has determined that cycle stopping may result from a software error that can cause a false error code that cancels the cycle. Techs will see a 6-1 error code recorded in service diagnostics. This issue is very sporadic, and is affected by the location of the household and region of the country. Other conditions that may also cause this “cancel drain” cycle are: siphoning through the drain hose, severe sudsing, and debris in the sump.



If the customer experiences a “cancel drain” issue, first check the following:
1. Make sure the dishwasher is installed according to installation instructions provided with the unit.
2. Check for water siphoning out through the drain hose. Ensure that the drain hose end termination point is above the water level in the tub. The drain loop attached to the side of the tub is not sufficient to prevent siphoning.
3. Check for severe sudsing or a malfunctioning Rinse Aid dispenser.
4. Check for locked rotor in wash pump.
5. Check for and remove debris in the bottom of the sump/chopper area.
6. Check for water supply and proper water level in the dishwasher.
7. If all the above checks are OK, then the control will need to be replaced with one that has the upgraded
software designed to handle any additional power variation.

Is the wash arm actually moving? Are you getting any error codes from the diagnostics? I had one where the motor was not turning the spray arm...

#308886 Whirlpool GWS Dishwasher GU3600XTVQ1 pump hose slipped off sump

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 05 December 2014 - 07:28 AM

if there is another tech bulletin regarding these earlier GWS models and the pump hose coming completely off, (not just leaking as the tech bulletin that you posted referred to

Whirlpool defines flooded kitchen from hose coming completely off as "a leak", so it is the same issue. When these were in warranty, we replaced the entire sump assembly at Whirlpool's expense -- no having much luck with just replacing the clamp. It tended to pop off again. If you find a narrow clamp at the hardware store, they work better than the ones Whirlpool recommends.

Remove power

Does drain pump come on?

If so, board is probably good, replace touch-pad...

#308453 What time did you guys get home on Wednesday night before Thanksgiving?

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 29 November 2014 - 09:35 AM

Our call load was shut off at 1PM, but you have to realize that if you punch out early - you don't get paid a full day. So I did inventory for a couple of hours to keep on the clock...

If indeed it is from the side, that goes to show you ya cannot trust any information from any appliance repair site other than Appliantology.

For reasons I can't explain, the improper installation of the drain line may take years before a siphon symptom develops. Above link is installation instructions for this model. Drain connection MUST be 20" above the floor installed before a drain trap OR you MUST install an air gap (siphon break).

#308104 Kenmore Induction Cooktop 790.42900601 Error Code 32

Posted by Chat_in_FL on 23 November 2014 - 09:41 AM

That's odd because the tech sheet that I pulled based on the model number you posted says the following for Error code 32:


Low voltage output from 12V supply on Filter board.

Replace filter board.


Seems like they're saying to replace this board Part number: 5304454971

See, I told you the "special tool" was included, LOL

Symptoms of a 240VAC range only getting 120VAC. Check your terminal block connections where the cord attaches to the range (again), the plug and the outlet. Use voltage meter to determine where you are loosing power.

When the control verifies that any of the pads on the membrane switch has been closed for one minute the failure will appear in the display
