Remove the lower acess panel and there is a tech sheet / troubleshooting guide taped to te back side of it,, in there is detailed explaination of all your issues you may encounter with your machine.
I usually set to a test/diag mode and check to make sure your heater is working, after that if heater check ok youd want to listen for proper water amount being pump around interior of d/w(usually you can hear not really pumping with much force).
try pushing the sani-rinse. heated dry, sani-rinse, heated dry.. all lights should lite, indicating your in hte diag mode, it will then cycle through the tests afeter about 45 secs or so the motor will engage immedialty open the door assy and feel the heater coil for heat,if cold cancel test with the cancel button and try again.( i like to confirm the heater cycle twice),if you coil is still cold refer to the heat cycle test strip for repair.
aferer exiting hte test the clean light willnolonger be blinking regardles of repairing issue or not. perhaps it was a fluke happening youll be alble to run you unit, should it happen again immedialty youllnknow you a problem yoll need to adress

Won't start/run. CLEAN light blinks continuously. manual drain (CANCEL)button works model number DU1100XTPQ9


When the clean light is blinking, the self-test on the dishwasher has reported a problem with the heating circuit. It needs to be fixed. If the dishwasher is still under warranty, call for service.

The manual for the DU1100XTPQ9 is here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/4164/WHIRLPOOL-Dishwasher-L0704454?brand_name_search=DU1100XTPQ9+WHIRLPOOL . Various parts diagrams and links to purchase the parts are here http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Whirlpool-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Model-DU1100XTPQ9/1198/0130000 .

I hope this helps.

The "clean" light is blinking - so the dishwasher isn't working.


Hi

Please check if the clean light is blinking 7 times. If yes then please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry.

If this doesn’t work then it’s an issue with the heater circuit, door switch, wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine.

Please post back for further assistance.

My dishwasher blinks the green clean light


May have a bad heater. press hi temp, air dry,hi temp, air dry (or whatever button is equivalent on your model). this starts a test and will allow unit to work again. When drying light goes out touch the heater. If it is cold then it may be bad. You will need a voltmeter to tell for sure however.

chris72 had the solution to my Whirlpool DU1055XTPQ3 not turning on. Per Chris's suggestion, I pressed back and forth between sani rinse and heated dry. All the lights came on as it reset and it was good to go. The dishwasher started up immediately. Saved me a service call, THANK YOU Chris!!

Whirlpool from ikea DWF415


hazman, depending on your serial number, this model has a bunch of service issues. Everything from the motor rework to the heating element. Sounds like your issue has to do with the heating element. If the dishwasher does not detect a 4 degrees temp. rise in the water in will go into this fault. They have redesigned the board to bypass this fault in later models. Since I don't have a serial number I can't tell if you have one of the affected models, but I assume so. I would call Whirlpool and inquire about any service flashes they have on this dishwasher, you may be covered. Otherwise you would have to do some tests to determine the cause, starting with the heating element. I believe you can clear the fault by pressing these keys in this order: high temp-air dry-high temp-air dry. four key presses...this should put it in the automatic test mode. Let it do it's thing and the fault should clear. For more info on your dishwasher there should be a tech sheet behind the bottom toe panel....Catriver..post back.
