One night it worked and the next morning it didn't. First the Rinse Only light was flashing. I tried disconnecting the power source and allow the machine to reset as instructed by the Whirlpool customer support. Now the RINSE ONLY and the CHINA CRYSTAL lights blink continuously. How do I properly reset the machine to allow it to function again?
Try pressing heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal keys within 6 seconds. All lights should come on and the machine should enter diagnostic mode. If this does not work remove the 2 screws that hold the toe panel on at the bottom front of the dishwasher, attached inside you will find a tech sheet that tells you how to enter the diagnostic mode. Once you get it in diagnostic mode let it do it's thing, will take about 20 minutes total. At the end the control will be reset. If the fault comes back then troubleshoot according to the tech sheet, or call for service.

Hello - Try resetting the dishwasher by disconnecting the power to the unit. This will clear most flashing lights. You can disconnect power by flipping the circuit house breaker off and back on for approximately two minutes. If this does not prove to be successful, contact a professional to move forward accurately. Dishwasher could possibly have a faulty control board or wiring failure.
Have Whirlpool GU1500XTLT1 with exact same symptoms, even tried power off but the lights resumed blinking when powered back up. Used solution from "kent168" of 17 Nov 2010 for similar GU1500XTLS1 with a different problem, and IT WORKED: "Reset the machine: press control buttons in this sequence: sani rinse, air dry, sani rinse, air dry, clear."
Open the door.
Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash,
heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within
6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help
then try pressing Saini
Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air
Rinse, Air Dry, Saini
Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door
and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally.
If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and
try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the
keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.
helps... Please post back if you need more information.
That reset sequence code didn't work for me. We tried everything on a ton of forums. What I did to fix our Whirlpool dishwasher was to disconnect the drainage tube from the garbage disposal. I noticed it smelled really bad so I figured it was clogged. I used a bucket to catch the water left in the tube. I took the sprayer from the sink and flushed out the tube. 4 pumpkin seeds and a couple of beans landed in my bucket. I flushed it a couple times. I hooked the tube back up to the disposal and sure enough all the lights returned to normal. I pressed start and it came on.
Turned Fridgidaire washer on last night before going to bed; this morning, it's running (at least making sounds) but did not wash; 4000 Series Frigidaire; display says Washing Drying Er Clean S; and two lights are flashing - Ultimate Scrub and Rinse only.
I tried turning off the breaker and restarting the machine but that doesn't work.
I've finally tracked down the manual and it the fault code is as follows "Indicates a fault in the heater or in the thermistor" You can go into a fault tracing mode by pushing the "Rinse Hold" button five times within 15 seconds. The first, third, fifth and seventh lights will flash when in this mode and you can test the following parts by pressing the corresponding button. I'm going to try the heater test below and assume that if that works the fault must be with the Thermistor. The other tests could be useful for other faults. User manual found here Rinse Hold - tests detergent solenoid, detergent flaps open after about 60sec Pots & Pans - tests Rinse Aid Solenoid, rinse aid will flow down door Normal Wash - tests water inlet valve, water can be heard entering Light Wash - tests ventilator solenoid, there will be a click followed by a rattling noise Quick Wash - tests the heater, the element heats up, WARNING don’t touch element HOT Temp - tests circulation pump, the pump starts Dry - test outlet pump, the pump starts Manual says to push 55 and 65 degree button to exit, I have no idea where those are so will probably just switch off at wall to reset. Hope this helps someone. I rang ASKO and they said they didn’t know what the fault code meant so either they can’t read or their service sucks, probably a bit of both!
