    I am locked out of cycle with clean light blinking green and cannot find my manual, dishwasher is about 1 year old. Is there a sequence to break this cycle? I turned off power for varying lengt5hs of time but problems persists. I tried the solution posted by "rhinostack" (heat dry normal heat dry normal cancel). It ran the 2 minutes, then opened and closed, but Clean light is still blinking and I am still locked out of the wash cycles.

    My whirlpool quite partner II is stuck because of clean light keeps blinking.

  • gcbbl Mar 13, 2009

    this fixed my blinking light problem. but i think i know what caused the blinking light . my machine now turns on but makes a hum noise when goes to wash cycle . prior my wash motor was noisy , i think it locked up now. anybody know a cheap place to get a washer pump motor for a whirlpool quiet partner I dishwasher
    any advise would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    The clean light on my Whirlpool Quiet Partner III was blinking: 7 blinks, pause, 7 more blinks. The sequence of heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal, followed by cancel worked! Thanks for posting this solution. I was looking at a counter full of dishes and an expensive service call.

    Had clean light continually blinking, did some troubleshooting and found heating element to be bad. Changed the element and light continued to blink, searched the web for some help and found the "heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal sequence to reset dishwasher to work and correct the blinking light. Thanks!!

Press:

heated dry

normal

heated dry

normal

then cancel..... wait until 2 minute cycle is done. open and close the door and make sure it is closed.

Then run another cycle. saw this on another post and it worked for me. They said that if it did not reset then either the latch has a bad connection or the heater for the water is bad.. it must register that the door is closed in order to actually start the heater for the water. I hope this helps you as well as it helped me.

Try the door switch first. This is a very easy fix if it is it. Otherwise you will kick yourself for not trying it sooner if it turns out to be the problem, trust me I know. Push in on the door when it is closed to close it tighter. If you here a click, and then another click when you release the pressure, then the switch could be your problem. Even if you don't hear a click, try this fix first. There is a double switch in the latch and the one for the heating element can be left off when the rest of the machine is on. I had this problem. I bent down the thin metal tab that the door latches onto. Bending it just a little fixed my problem. Don't bend down too much or you will keep the door from shutting properly.

When I did heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal, cancel, it did not work for me. So I did the same sequence without hitting cancel and it reset itself. Try this if the other way fails.

  • madallmy Feb 06, 2011

    Genius. Thanks. I tried this way and all the panel lights came on...it resumed 9 mins of wash cycle on its own (dont ask me why it resumes a wash cycle) and at least I hear
    water moving around...first time in two days. After its finished...I would suspect open and close and start a new cycle. Its early, but thanks. I really dislike this machine and look forward to replacing it soon, (not financially tho). :>)

  • Deborah Nov 26, 2012

    madallmy, my dishwasher is less than two years old, but it did this problem with me and of all things after thanksgiving dinner when I had a full load. I normally wash by hand when it is just dinner dishes, but I was so tired from cooking and baking for two days, and i have RA, when really tired I hurt badly when I stand for over five minutes. I did this finally today after turning off the power, unloading, reloading, and I found this, and so far so good, at least I hear water at last! So far it has not started washing fully yet, just in the first of the cycle, but like yours, all of my lights lit up across the panel, then that blinking clean light which has tormented me since thanksgiving finally went off, I did allow it to run the one cycle, it then stopped, it did not do the nine minute wash as yours did. Once it stopped, I replaced my wash pod and set it on normal wash with heated dry, and it has started to do something praise God. And I am so thankful for the help from here!

Whirlpool gold- quiet partner III


An angel of mercy on another blog posted this solution and it worked for me as well. My Whirlpool Quiet Partner Dishwasher would not work due to the CLEAN light flashing in 7 interval sequences. I followed these steps and my dishwasher is not working perfectly...hope it works for you:

"Well for mine which is a Whirlpool Gold Model # GU2400XTPS3, I found the seq of buttons that I had to push to reset the curcuit board. I think it may of been in this forum somewhere. But I had to push - Sani Rinse, Heated Dry, Sani Rinse, Heated Dry, and then the dishwasher went through it's diagnostic cycle and then after that the light stopped blinking and the dishwasher works great. Supposily, there is a Product Tech Sheet behide the kick panel of every dishwasher, but mine was gone so I had to find the information on the internet. You might want to do a serach for the correct seq of buttons you have to push to reset the curcuit board. If you know for sure that the heating element is bad, you will have to order one. "
