The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

Whirlpool adp 6515ix dishwasher start button is flashing in 4 time cycles-what does this tell me please. None of the manuals indicate what the flashing could be signalling.

I have a Whirlpool DU1055XT. The unit will not work


Hi,

The flashing light indicates the water is not heating, there could be several reasons for this, I have created instructions on how to reset the dishwasher so you can use it and why it may have occurred. If you follow these and still have trouble let me know and we can dig into it deeper.

Dishwasher will not do anything and the clean light is blinking


The clean light blinking means you have a problem with the heater circuit. ! of four problems. 1. The heater is bad. should measure about 13 ohms. 2. The control board is bad and is not sending 110 volts to the heater. 3. The overload thermostat has tripped or failed. should measure 0 ohms. 4 Wiring has an open ckt. Check these in order and you should find your problem. Please give me your rating. Thank you.

Blinking Clean light in Whirpool dishwasher


Control is programmed to stop running and not allow any further cycles if it detects a water heating problem (no temperature increase detected in heated Main Wash on 3 consecutive cycles). Control blinks the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and disables the Start/Resume key until cleared. Running Diagnostics clears the control and allows it to operate again. The water heating problem must be fixed or the control will stop running again. See potential causes below. Heater circuit problem: ■ Open in heater. ■ Open connection or component in heater circuit. ■ Faulty heater drive circuit on control. 1. Check operation of heater in Diagnostics cycle. 2. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power. 3. Check resistance of heater and all components and connections in the water heating circuit or heat dry circuit.
