Question about Dishwashers
My Whirlpool DU1055XTSS3 hasn't been working for a couple of years now, and I'd like to stop hand washing all my dishes. I'm not sure what happened when it first stopped working, as I wasn't there, but I noticed not long ago that the Pots & Pans light was constantly flashing. I googled that today and found that I should press Hi-Temp Wash, Heated Dry, Hi-Temp Wash, Heated Dry, Cancel. After doing so, the Normal light started flashing non-stop along with the Pots & Pans light. Any insight would help me find what parts I might need to look for so my dad can help me get it fixed.
I dont know if this indicates a malfunction or not. One user manual may cover several years while many modifications can take place. Ask yourself if any other part of the process can contribute to this. You have electricity to the control board or it will not flash these display indicators.
Is the water on?
Is the waterline kinked under or behind the machine?
Is it connected to hot water? A heater raises the hot water quickly but cold water takes alot longer to reach operating temp. Since the hottest program id pots and pans, this may indicate the heater is bad but since you were able to change the display to pp and normal I think you entered into a controls sequence that technicians can do to make changes to some parameters like temperature setting or water hardness. See if you can get a whirlpool tech to break the grip on his service manual and send you a page by email. Good luck.
