Please follow this steps and fix it. God bless you


Heating Element

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Check Fault Codes

If the display lights are flashing and there is an error code in the display window, check the wiring diagram and tech sheet in the dishwasher that will provide information on the fault.


Drain Pump

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the drain pump might not be working properly. For two-wire drain pump motors check them for continuity using an Ohm meter. If it's defective You'll need to replace it. Drain pumps are not repairable.

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the lights are flashing on the display the entire touchpad and control panel assembly might be defective. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

Touchpad

If the display lights are flickering for no reason, the touchpad might need to be replaced. Sometimes when the touchpad is defective the display lights are flashing randomly.

Sounds like you have a control panel and/or control board issue. Normally when operator functions fail or "halfway" work the main control board, associated keypad, or wiring are the likely suspect. Now...another remote possibility could be the door latch not closing properly. However, this would affect ALL functions. I hope this helps you.

Dishwasher says dishes are clean but is still stuck in cycle. tried resetting the breaker but no luck. the green light that goes on when clean is constantly flashing but dishwasher is non-responsive. any...


Some dishwashers have some sort of float switch. They can stick , try rocking dish washer if stuck mid cycle, I would make sure the food collect grid at bottom is clear, try flushing machine through with an empty load now and then, you can buy stuff for cleaning dishwasher insides too.

My dishwasher is stuck on clean mode? what can i do to reset? it finished cleaning, then will not cancel. just green flashing light that says clean. i tried to unplug the washer for about 1hr ,but no help.


Hi,

The flashing clean light is an indication of an error during the cycle. I put together an explanation of this and how to reset the control so you can use the dishwasher again. Follow this link and let me know if it works for you.

Whirlpool dishwasher reset code


Yup, found it on another site..I had the same issue today.

Reset code: Push 1. Heat Dry 2. Normal 3. Heat Dry 4. Normal

wait about 2 minutes as the controller resets itself. You should see all the leds flash on and then wash and rinse leds stay on for about 30 seconds. A minute or so later ..presto, my machine worked again.

My machine is not the GU3200XTP, but in the same Whirlpool tall tub series (same manual) so leds may not have the same name.
