Clean light is flashing du1145 whirlpool dishwasher, will not run


Hi,

This is a Common Problem. Read the same solution i offered to many Customer's and it actually worked like anything :-

Hi,

This machine was made by Whirlpool and the flashing clean light is a common error code for them.
If 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.
Press 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
or
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!!

My soak/scour light is blinking and cant get my dishwasher to work. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated on how to fix the problem


generally any time a button continuously flashes, you either have a bad door switch that doesnt recognize door closing, therefore will not start, or the electronic keyboard/touch pad is shorted out, in which case youll need to replace the console assy

Problems with Whirlpool dishwasher model GU1500XTKB0


will these units (silo and jtrip) start back on their own? if so, it is likely they are heating the water.
otherwise it sounds like a logic board, unless there is a defective door switch or sensor issue.
electronics seem to be a recurring problem with whirlpool.
i would ask whirlpool (electorlux) to either buy it back or fix it.
good luck
