Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Blinking "Normal" button

The "Normal" button is blinking and we can't get it off. The dishwasher won't turn on w/ it blinking. We've tried to reset it - turned off the electricity, etc.

We've checked to make sure there was nothing blocking anything...we can't find anything wrong.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks!

    I have the GU2700 Quiet Partner IV and the Normal light keeps blinking 7 times, stop for a few seconds, and blinks 7xs again. Can I try to do something without calling the serviceman? Thanks!

PROBLEM: STOPPED RUNNING, WILL NOT START AND
CLEAN LED BLINKS 7 TIMES, THEN REPEATS
(WATER HEATING FAULT)
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.
Wash pump not pumping water
past the heater efficiently.
See “WASH PUMP WILL NOT
PUMP”.
Door switch not making
contact consistently:
■ Faulty or sloppy door latch
assembly (which can be
aggravated by high door
closure force keeping strike
plate from fully seating).
■ Faulty door switch (high
resistance).
NOTE: Neutral switch on
plastic tub models is only in
series with motor and heater;
other loads are not affected.
1. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect
power.
2. Measure resistance of door
switch contacts while checking
mechanical operation of latch
assembly. Confirm switches not
loose from assembly. Check strike
plate and door closure.
Lack of water to heat. See “WILL NOT FILL OR LOW
WATER”.
PROBLEM: WON’T START AND START/RESUME K

Error 1 on kenwood dishwasher


Hello.
Manufactured by Whirlpool, Kenmore dishwashers have an electronic control panel that must be unlocked in order to set or make changes to your dishwashing cycle. If an error light is blinking on your dishwasher's control panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinking lights on your dishwasher control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needs to be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the control panel, contact Sears to service your Kenmore dishwasher or consider troubleshooting the appliance yourself.
1Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button on your Kenmore dishwasher for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher control panel.
2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after the other, in fairly quick succession.
3 Wait for the dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
4 Press the "Cancel/Drain" button at the end of the diagnostic test cycle. This should reset the control panel on your Kenmore dishwasher.

Thanks.

Blinking "Normal" light on a Maytag model


Hi


Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.



Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher Model #GU240CXTPB1. The normal light won't stop blinking. Tried turning the breaker to reset, but still blinks. No other button works.


Whirlpool dishwasher reset sequence is usually to hit the heat dry then normal then heat dry then normal buttons within 5 seconds and it usually resets.
