Question about Dishwashers
We have a Whirlpool dishwasher model # DU945PWSQ0. We've not even had it a year, and suddenly it won't advance from the wash cycle, to the rinse cycle, to the dry cycle. Any ideas what the problem might be? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you kindly, Kristy.
both have a wax motor on them that needs to be replaced you just remove the panel and replace the wax motor is what its called

does sound like a timer issue, valve obviously works(fills in rinse) timer not advancing, ( sometimes can be from the timer knog hitting against he console itself, try pulling the knob out a bit, eprhaops its getting stuck.) looked up the timer 8535371 retails for about 115 bucks, dishwashers are no longer very expensive so keep that in mind while trying to repair this one

I had the same problem with my GE Adora. The dishes were getting cloudy and the soap dispenser would not open. Turns out the hard water deposits were causing the soap dispenser to stick shut. I purchased and used Dishwasher Magic which is a dishwasher cleaner designed to remove limescale, rust and buildup. I used as directed and now my dishes are sparkling and the soap dispenser pops right open.

Your timer switch is most likely defective.
It probably needs to be replaced.
It is like a clock with switches at different times
If it is stuck at a particular time it will run there forever.
Before servicing disconnect power!!!!!!!!!!
You can remove inside door panel with about 6 phillips screws or so.
Timer is directly attached to the dial on your machine.
These cost about $100.00 or less.
Can also be found used online for cheaper.

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."

Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from the power supply. Wait 10 minutes and restore power.
Select a "Hi Temp" wash cycle, followed by a heated dry setting on the dishwasher.
Repeat step 3. This will reset the dishwasher.

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 Dry, Saini 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.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
