SOURCE: Whirlpool clean light flashes 7 times

Actually, the button order to put it in a diagnostic cycle and clear the blinking clean light on the gu2500 is HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL not the other way around as Iden had posted.

Do a "key dance" between normal and heated dry , going bak and forth six times. this will rester the heater fault. That is the clean light flashing code. Now you have to find the cause. Most likely is that there were suds in the last cycle or the door doesn't close smoothly. If the door sttrikes the cabinet in any way it will cause that problem.

First press your "Sani-rinse" button and the your "Heat Dry" button and toggle between them a couple times. This will reset your control module. If the clean light continues to blink then it means that your heating element needs replacing.  This is not a big job, either. You will need to order a new element and come back for instructions if you can't figure it out quickly....

SOURCE: clean light flashes

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.

If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock 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).

Hi Melinda,
Thanks in advance for using Fixya.com. Now then firstly by pushing the heated dry and normal buttons then repeating is the proper procedure to reset the control board,below is a the exact buttons to push to reset the control. Also please take a count of the number of times the light flashes befroe going off breifly then repeats the same number of flashes; the number of flashes indicates a error code...if if flashes 5 times that error code 5 and if it flashes 7 times its error code 7 etc,etc.. please get back to me with the number of times it flashes.
Here is what i copied and pasted from my online service manual for Whirlpool dishwashers that shows which buttons must be pushed to reset the board,after pushing the buttons shown push the cancel/off button and the board should be reset so the machine will start at least one time where ya can take note of the number of times the nirmal light flashes,

Try to reset the dishwasher by using this sequence of keys within 6-8 secs.

HiTemp/ heat Dry/ Hi Temp/ heat Dry/ Hi Temp / Heat dry.

If it works all lights should turn on. Press Cancel to exit.

I am assuming you have already tried to turn the mains power off and back on.

If still no difference, then the controller or the panel has packed up.

You can locate the parts from this site.

Hi,

This is a common problem with Whirlpool washers.If the clean light is the one flashing then your dishwasher 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 until 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!!

Whirlpool Gold double oven - started beeping then all lights on the control panel went out. Reset the circuit breaker which makes the oven beep but still have no lights. Oven will not operate.


I was just looking over a manual for a late model double oven. Their is a thermal limit going into the controls that will open if the temp rises enough to harm the controls. They look like this one.2605a73.jpg That kills all power to the control and you will see nothing on the display.

This manual will give an idea where to look:

Whirlpool Gold Conquest light is flashing and clicking sound


With sounds like that I would use caution if installing a light bulb there. The sound and description sounds like a short circuit. Did this happen recently? Could you get me the complete model number, for example GS6SHEXN
