Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
The start light is flashing. I have cleaned the filters etc and it hasnt helped. If I hold the start button in, the dishwasher starts trying to take water in but then the pump starts and it pumps any water back out straight away.
It means the cycle was interrupted in the middle of the cycle. You'll need to reset the circuit breaker and unplug the dishwasher for 10-20 min.s. If its flashing continously its NTC failure( NTC = Negative Temperature Co-efficient. Basically it's a temperature sensor also known as a feeler. Common problem with Whirlpool machines). Open the underside by removing front inspection panel below door. It's a twist fit probe that fits into the sump. You could try pouring a kettle of boiling water into the sump and trying the machine again. Also take the tech sheet out of the lower kickplate, it would be glued or taped.
Please tell me the model number of your whirlpool dishwasher so that i can provide you with more information.
Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

the washer may still be in safe mode. try this, reset the unit's memory...
keysequence to reset
all lights will come on
then close the door
then clean light should go off
if this should not work this sounds like when the heating element cracked and shorted, the surgegoing backward may have taken out the control board. Replacing thecontrol should solve your problem.
