Clean light is flashing du1145 whirlpool dishwasher, will not run
This is a Common Problem. Read the same solution i offered to many Customer's and it actually worked like anything :-
This machine was made by Whirlpool and the flashing clean light is a common error code for them.
the clean light is the one flashing then your dishawasher 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 untill 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.
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
Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry + Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry in less than 5 sec
Let me know, if you need further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
