Dishwasher Turns On By Itself
Model Number: DU920PFGZ2 Brand:
5 - 10 years
I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model DU920PFGZ2 dishwasher that runs perfectly, but it also starts itself - even when nobody is in the room. Your representative told me I need to replace the control console (AP3044891) keypad, a $152 part. This is an expensive part for an older dishwasher. I'd hate to replace it and then find out that it was not the cause of my problem. Is there a way to TEST it to verify it is in fact the cause before ordering a replacement? Are there any other parts that could cause this problem? Note that all the functions and panel lights work properly. The only problem is that they begin to work even when nobody is in the room. I have already shut off the power in the hope that it would "reboot" the electronics, but that didn't help. There doesn't seem to be any pattern to when the dishwasher starts, it just does...
