- Poor water supply, or shut off tap of a water pipe.
- Closures of wires, burnt TEN and other reasons cause the machine to fire, so the machine stops working.

How to repair the dishwasher with your own hands
We offer you to familiarize yourself with the most typical for the PMP "Virpul" breakdown. There are not many of them, but you need to know what to do and how to fix the malfunction - with your own hands or call the master.
The impellers do not work
If the sprinklers stop spinning and spray water, the circulation pump is to blame for the failure. The part is needed for water circulation in the system when washing dishes. If the pump does not work properly, the water that must be splashed does not flow to the impellers. Sprinklers stop spinning and supply water, the washing process stops.
Troubleshooting is to replace a broken pump. To do this, you need to know how to parse your Whirlpool model. If you can not manage at home, contact the service for qualified help.
The dishwasher does not drain the water
In most Whirlpool models, error codes such as E6 or F4 may be lit. The cause of the breakdown may be a drain pump - it drains the water from the machine after finishing washing or rinsing the dishes. If the pump fails, the water remains in the system and the operation of the PMM is blocked.
To solve the problem, you need to replace the pump.
Also, water does not drain if the plastic knee in the sewer system is clogged - at the connection point of the drain hose. Breakage is easy to neutralize by hand - it is enough to clean the knee. If you can not do it yourself, contact the plumber.
Washing mode is not activated
Do not know how to start the mode, if it does not turn on? If the control module is to blame for the failure, it is unlikely that pressing the buttons on the panel again will help the machine to start. When there is a failure in the module, it stops sending "commands and the wash cycle does not start.
About how to turn on the machine when the module breaks down, the service worker knows the operator thoroughly. In most cases, the firmware of the unit is required, less often - it is completely replaced.
