Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

I am helping some friends with their property while they are overseas. Their tenants called to say that the dishwasher is not draining. My friend said that the same thing happened before they left. They said that the water was getting too hot and they were able to push some of the control buttons to reset it. Does this make sense? And, how would I do this?

Probably not. BUT the tenant may be opening the door before the rinse/dry cycles are complete. You can change the water temp selection by changing the wash setting. settings like "high temp" and "pots and pans" on most machines will wash in hotter water. try closing the door and press and hold the start button. that might pump out remaining water. also Make sure drain hose (under the sink) has not been moved.

SOURCE: Whirlpool dishwasher will not start

There is a small replacable part on the control panel circuit board which is like a fuse. It actually is a temperature fuse and it blows when the environment gets too hot for the circuit board. Unplug the dishwasher and take the door apart so you can see the circuit board. If you trace the power wires one of them leads to a little white module with 2 electrical tabs. Unplug the 2 wires and unsnap the module. You can check it with an ohm meter. IF its good the meter will register almost a short. f it's bad it will be open. The parts place I went to didn't even need a model number and he says he goes through a lot of them.

SOURCE: the clean light keeps blinking and it won't reset to wash dishes.

The blinking clean light is an interruption in the dishwasher program that usually indicates a component problem or program malfunction. If a component is defective, it's usually attributed to the heating cycle or thermostat failure. To rule out component failure, or program error, the following link explains how you may be able to clear the blinking clean light problem and possibly avoid a service call:

Keep in mind all dishwashers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting. Just remove the screws that hold the panel in place and remove.

NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.

In many cases, I found this to be a momentary glitch in operation. If the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of WHICH circuit is causing your problem. As all dishwashers differ in operation and features, refer to your tech sheet for the recommended troubleshooting steps.

NOTE: Some dishwashers use the Sani-Rinse/Air Dry combination, some use the Sani-Rinse/Heated Dry combination. Some use a sequence of three, others use a sequence of 5 pushes of the buttons. If the tech sheet is not located behind the lower toe panel, it should be affixed somewhere under the dishwasher. I have also found them located inside the inner door panel. Please post back and let me know if you still need assistance.

Dishwasher leak

I appreciate your post, friend!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher leak while in the wash cycle. This could be a leak within your gasket, drain hose, or drain pump. You can review the gaskets and the drain hose to make sure there is no visible damage. If you are unable to locate any issues I would suggest contacting a technician for proper repairs. This can help prevent any housing damage or future issues with the dishwasher. -Matt

Why is my dishwasher just only washing and draining,

Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

I see that you are experiencing issues with your Frigidaire dishwasher only washing and draining. This could be a possible issue with your sensor or control panel. You should attempt a reset to see if that could help clear any miscommunications within your dishwasher. In order to reset your dishwasher you need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. Hopefully this helps to correct your issue. -Matt

Dishwaher does not drain cmpletely ?

Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I see you are having difficulty with your Frigidaire dishwasher not draining. Check the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher because if that gets clogged then it will not allow your dishwasher to drain properly. Additionally, check to assure that the sump pump is hooked up correctly to allow proper siphoning of your dishwasher. If that is correct it could be a potential problem with your control panel or drain pump and I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this helps to some degree. -Matt

Why won't dishwasher drain ?

Good Morning Friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire dishwasher is not draining properly; this can be caused by many reasons. First, I would suggest checking the drain hose to ensure it has not become twisted or kinked. Even if the hose is not kinked make sure it has not fallen behind your dishwasher either as this can prevent draining. Additionally, you could check the filter at the bottom of the tub to make sure no debris has clogged the filter or disposal. Other than that the drain pump could be the culprit. If so, I would recommend a local authorized technician to come out and properly diagnose your dishwasher. I hope this information helps -Z

My diswasher has all brown scum on the inside. how can I clean this and what can I do to prevent it?

you can manually scrub it with barkeepers friend and a small brush then run it (If it is rust)
or you can buy a bottle of jet dry dishwasher cleaner, I prefer to use the barkeepers friend
since I can reclean certain areas and it is less expensive. Also make sure that if you have
a disposal that it is working properly since the dishwasher drains through it. Hope this helps.

Bosch NOT completing cycle NOR draining water

This may or may not be the issue: I have friends that bought a new dishwasher - I'm not certain, but I think it was a Bosch. They did have similar draining issues.

With their dishwasher, the installer did not follow directions properly. Yes, he'd "installed a million dishwashers", but was too self-confident to check the directions for something particular to this machine. There was something about the way one of the drain or supply hoses was supposed to loop around that was unique to installing this brand, and that ended up being the problem.

Make sure that your machine was installed properly in this regard, even if your installer says they know what they were doing. Call Bosch's customer service dept. if you have further questions.
