Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Whirlpool dishwasher GU2500XTPQ1 Soak & scour light flashing

I tried to reset it by pressing Normal-Heated Dry-Normal-Heated Dry repeatedly, but this did not clear the light. Also tried SaniRinse-Heated Dry and Hi-Temp/Heated Dry with no luck.

In fact, the Normal light goes on and off when any other button is pressed. Sometimes when I press Accusense, the dashes come up in the time remaining indicator. Pressing the cancel button repeatedly does nothing to help, but sometimes if I hold it in long enough the number 2 appears in the time remaining window and the pump comes on for about 30 seconds and stops the the dashes appear in the time remaining.

If I pull the fuse, then replace it after a few minutes the Soak & scour light comes on solid for about 15 seconds, then starts blinking continuously.

SOURCE: Whirlpool GU2548 green light flashing, nothing working

I have had the same problem with my the same dishwasher. The manual says that "the dishwasher has malfunctioned. Call service to check heater element". I called service and they are saying that replacing the heater element and possibly the electronic panel may be required. Total cost (part + labor) = $350-400!! I am very very upset with Whirlpool right now.

SOURCE: The only button that works is the cancel drain

Sounds like a keypad malfunction or the control board has gone bad.

How do i reset the consol on a westinghouse dishwasher with the buttons rinse only, quick wash, china crystal, normal, pots and pans, soak and scour, hi temp scour, sani scour, air dry and cancel?


Normally you will have to press High Temp and Air dry button alternatively 3 to 4 times within 8 secs until the whole panel lights up. Then press Cancel. That should reset the dishwasher.

Clean light is flashing du1145 whirlpool dishwasher, will not run


Hi,

This is a Common Problem. Read the same solution i offered to many Customer's and it actually worked like anything :-

Hi,

This machine was made by Whirlpool and the flashing clean light is a common error code for them.
If the clean light is the one flashing then your dishawasher 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 untill 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.

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.
