You will have to reset the console. To do this, close the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

Check the main control for the heater relay, this may be faulty and the cause of your issue. Good Luck

I have Whirlpool Gold Quiet III dishwasher model GU 2300XTLB1 and the clean light flashes 7 times. The sump pump is clean. How can verify if my element needs replacement. And how to replace it ? Tx ML


To check the element, you need to remove the unit from under the counter, lay it down so that you can see the connections on the bottom, look for the wires that go to the element. You can either take the element out by removing the fasteners on the connections that hold it to the tub and take it into an appliance store and have them test it or you can get a ohm meter and check it yourself.

Clean light blinks on whirlpool dishwasher won't run


When the light flashes 7 times it means there is/was a problem with the hot water, including a bad heater element. Flip the breaker for a minute and hopefully that will clear the error; otherwise, here's a website that will take you through resetting it.

My Whirlpool DU1145XTP won't turn on. Clean light


Check the themistor in the control panel. Radio Shack sells these for about $1.30 each. I replaced the one in my dishwasher three years ago and have had no issues since.

I have a quite partner 2 and it is stuck on the clean cycle and the light is blinking on and off. It will not work when I push any other buttons.


whirlpool dishwashers sense the water temperature in them the clean light flashing 7 times means either the heater element is not working or the water temperature going into the unit is to cold, start the water at the sink before starting the dishwasher now to get rid of the flashing light press the hi temp wash button and then the sani rinse button press one then the other over and over until all the lights come on it will then go in to a test mode when it completes the flashing light will go out that will solve your problem

Whirlpool GU2400XTP clean light flashes 7 times. User Guide says heater malfunction - (why does the machine have to become inoperable with a heater malfunction? Grrrrrr....)


easy there tiger. at least your machine will tell you what to fix. alot of people on here write in because their machine will run and run and never move the timer. they have no idea that if the water is not hot enough, the timer will not advance to another cycle. confirm the diagnosis with a multimeter and replace the heating element, if needed. checking the connections on the element may be enough. good luck

Whirpool dish washer model #Gu2400 -dishes are clean but clean light keeps flashing


Hi



Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring).
It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).




Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

How do you reset the whirlpool gu2400 xtp83 dishwasher. the clean light is flashing. The unit will not start


Can be caused by detection of a heater circuit problem. You can reset by running the diagnostic cycle. To turn of the diagnostic cycle, press: HEATED DRY button, then NORMAL button, HEATED DRY button again, then NORMAL button. The cycle runsfor ~22 mins. When it completes, the blinking light should go out. You can then try running the dishwasher again. If the problem comes back, the heater element or Thermister may need to be replaced

Whirlpool gu2400 clean light is blinking 7 times


Yes this is a heater fault detection error. The unit may not be heating the water resulting in unsanitary dishes so the unit shuts down in this fault. Also the door may not have completely shut resulting in the heater not working, but everything else does (the heater common line is broken at the door switch. Clear the fault by entering diagnostics with this key dance heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal. All the leds will light, you can then press cancel and try another wash cycle. If fault occurs again, you must repair heater problem.
