what most likely is going to be the problem is a blown thermal fuse that attaches to the control panel housing. gain access to the control panel and use should see the thermal fuse,the housing for the control board is grey and this part is white.Remove the wires to it and check for contininity (zero ohms) on it using a ohm meter set to a low ohms setting. If it turns out to be good the next thing to check is the switch(s) on the latch asm using the same method to check them as the fuse.BEFORE CHECKING EITHER OF THOSE BE SURE TO DISCONNECT POWER TO THE DISHWASHER
Good luck, i hope that i 've helped you to figure out what is wrong with your dishwasher, Gene
Your dishwasher will do this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water. Sometimes just a false reading.
Reset your console by pressing: high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry
When all the lights are on you are set in diagnostic mode. Just hit cancel a you will be able to run your dishwasher as normal. If this same light appears again then you have a bad element or thermostat.
This is a common problem with Whirlpool washers.If
the clean light is the one flashing then your dishwasher could have a
heater circuit problem (depending on the age) or this could simply just
be water colder than it is used to getting.
Repeatedly press the Heated Dry and Hi-Temp Wash(scrub) which ever yours has until all the LED lights come on, press cancel twice and
try the dishwasher again making sure to run the water at the kitchen
sink till it is hot before starting the dishwasher, if this trips and
locks you have a problem with the heating element, or temp sensor. Press
the heated dry button followed by the normal cycle button, and then
repeat once. You should see all of the lights come on for a second or
two, and then the dishwasher will work again. If you haven't
already, take a look under the kick plate in front to see if there is a
schematic tucked in there somewhere. Whirlpool has put their
diagnostics for specific models on these. I don't have the specific repair manual for you model. So, if the above combination does not work here are two more that have worked for me.
HiTemp Wash + Air Dry + HiTemp Wash + Air Dry in less than 5 sec or Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry + Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry in less than 5 sec
