Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher
Just bought gu2300xt. used 10 days, now click any button, it is not working any more and light no longer turns green.
I have had the same problem with my the same dishwasher. The manual says that "the dishwasher has malfunctioned. Call service to check heater element". I called service and they are saying that replacing the heater element and possibly the electronic panel may be required. Total cost (part + labor) = $350-400!! I am very very upset with Whirlpool right now.

I had the same issue. If you have a 1100,1200,1500 etc you have the first series of the dishwasher and there is a heat sensor issue. The dishwasher runs and checks if the water heats up by 8 degrees. If the water doesn't heat enough then the washer will trigger shut down (assuming that there is an issue somewhere in the water heating process could be a variety of things) Alas, it may only be a one time issue and yet the programming in the dishwasher defaults to a shut down where the normal consumer can't get the machine to run. DO THIS: remove the kick panel on the front of the washer. Behind that is a document with a series of buttons that you push to reset the machine's computer e.g. you might have to press 'saniwash' then airdry then Saniwash then airdry. The machine will start the reset process and may also go through a 'cancel' function. After that you should be back in business. They have fixed this issue on the new machines so that the 8 temp trigger has to fail three wash cycles in a row before the consumer lock out is activated. As for those who own the first series....we do lots of resets. P.S. I learned this AFTER I bought two new panels for my GU1500.

SOURCE: My whirlpool dishwasher has a
How many times is the green light flashing on the unit? Or is it just flashing over and over continuosly and not stopping. The number of times the light flashes usually represents an error code with the unit. Also try pushing sani rinse - dry button and then sani rinse - dry button then you should see the control panel light up after that hold cancel for 5 seconds message me back if this does not work. Also have you tryed shutting the unit off for 7 minutes at your breaker box sometimes this allows for the control to reset when this is done I await your reply To how this works with eliminating the blinking normal light Thanks again Rick
