Dishwasher loses power early in cycle
My whirlpool dishwasher has started behaving very oddly. When I start a cycle, the basin will fill with water, but after about 40 seconds it completely shuts off. It’s as if it is losing power, as none of the buttons on the control panel work, nor do the indicator LEDs. I know that this is not an issue with the latch, as I have disassembled the door, and checked continuity on the latch. I also ended up completely removing the latch and shorting the switch to ensure that the connection is made, still losing power. I confirmed that the wires are all in-tact and the insulation is still good. Here’s the weird part: if I remove the bottom panel to reach under the washer, I can push up from under it, and it will make the panel lose power. Once I stop applying pressure, it will come back. It appears that something is either loose or shorting. Do you guys have any idea how to troubleshoot this?
