Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

GU2400XTPQ6 Whirlpool Clean LED blinking 7 times

Unit started to blink 7 times, could not reset. Could not initiate wash. Entered di (sani-rinse, heated dry, sani, heated) and cycled through diagonstic procedure. No. 3 proved to produce a humming sound but no movement.

Diagonstic cycle completed. Smells a bit like burnt wiring. No smoke evident. Was it from Number 3?

All LEDs have been cleared. Dishwasher can start cycle but still hums. I cancelled the cycle.

Prior to failing, dishwasher motor was getting louder and louder. Dishes were not getting cleaned. Used vinegar wash, different detergents, to no avail. Carefully took bottom assembly apart from the inside (not underneath) and cleaned out screen. Worked well for a month, and then became noisy and finally failure (7 led lights blinking).

What is wrong with this three year old machine?? I am willing to fix it myself, just need directions on what to replace and where I can get step by step instructions.

Thanks in advance!

Rob

SOURCE: ''Clean'' light is blinking, ''Cancel'' does not reset the cycle.

If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing 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.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring).
It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

Good luck!

SOURCE: Blinking Clean light in Whirpool dishwasher

Control is programmed to stop running and not allow any further cycles if it detects a water heating problem (no temperature increase detected in heated Main Wash on 3 consecutive cycles). Control blinks the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and disables the Start/Resume key until cleared. Running Diagnostics clears the control and allows it to operate again. The water heating problem must be fixed or the control will stop running again. See potential causes below. Heater circuit problem: ■ Open in heater. ■ Open connection or component in heater circuit. ■ Faulty heater drive circuit on control. 1. Check operation of heater in Diagnostics cycle. 2. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power. 3. Check resistance of heater and all components and connections in the water heating circuit or heat dry circuit.

SOURCE: starts but will not go into wash cycle

My solution to this problem was to simply unplug the power from the wall for a few seconds...plug back in, try to cycle again and the wash cycle starts fine now. May have been caught in a cycle loop or something. Any way this solution worked for me hope it works for someone else.

I am having the same issue. Did you find a solutions? Looks like websites I've searched talk about resetting the controls by hitting either high temp wash -> airdry -> high temp wash -> air dry OR saniwash -> air dry -> saniwash -> air dry. I'll have to try that tonight.

I have a quite partner 2 and it is stuck on the clean cycle and the light is blinking on and off. It will not work when I push any other buttons.


whirlpool dishwashers sense the water temperature in them the clean light flashing 7 times means either the heater element is not working or the water temperature going into the unit is to cold, start the water at the sink before starting the dishwasher now to get rid of the flashing light press the hi temp wash button and then the sani rinse button press one then the other over and over until all the lights come on it will then go in to a test mode when it completes the flashing light will go out that will solve your problem

Blinking clean light


remove the lower acess panel and there is a tech sheet / troubleshooting guide taped to te back side of it,, in there is detailed explaination of all your issues you may encounter with your machine.
I usually set to a test/diag mode and check to make sure your heater is working, after that if heater check ok youd want to listen for proper water amount being pump around interior of d/w(usually you can hear not really pumping with much force).
try pushing the sani-rinse. heated dry, sani-rinse, heated dry.. all lights should lite, indicating your in hte diag mode, it will then cycle through the tests afeter about 45 secs or so the motor will engage immedialty open the door assy and feel the heater coil for heat,if cold cancel test with the cancel button and try again.( i like to confirm the heater cycle twice),if you coil is still cold refer to the heat cycle test strip for repair.
aferer exiting hte test the clean light willnolonger be blinking regardles of repairing issue or not. perhaps it was a fluke happening youll be alble to run you unit, should it happen again immedialty youllnknow you a problem yoll need to adress

it will enter a diag mode "all lights will light up" wait a few secs and then cancel cycle .. if happens a again or with frequency, then call a servicer, you have a problem, first time chaulk up to a fluke

Whirlpool gold- quiet partner III


An angel of mercy on another blog posted this solution and it worked for me as well. My Whirlpool Quiet Partner Dishwasher would not work due to the CLEAN light flashing in 7 interval sequences. I followed these steps and my dishwasher is not working perfectly...hope it works for you:

"Well for mine which is a Whirlpool Gold Model # GU2400XTPS3, I found the seq of buttons that I had to push to reset the curcuit board. I think it may of been in this forum somewhere. But I had to push - Sani Rinse, Heated Dry, Sani Rinse, Heated Dry, and then the dishwasher went through it's diagnostic cycle and then after that the light stopped blinking and the dishwasher works great. Supposily, there is a Product Tech Sheet behide the kick panel of every dishwasher, but mine was gone so I had to find the information on the internet. You might want to do a serach for the correct seq of buttons you have to push to reset the curcuit board. If you know for sure that the heating element is bad, you will have to order one. "
