SOURCE: whirlpool gu2400 clean light is blinking 7 times

Yes this is a heater fault detection error. The unit may not be heating the water resulting in unsanitary dishes so the unit shuts down in this fault. Also the door may not have completely shut resulting in the heater not working, but everything else does (the heater common line is broken at the door switch. Clear the fault by entering diagnostics with this key dance heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal. All the leds will light, you can then press cancel and try another wash cycle. If fault occurs again, you must repair heater problem.

You will have to reset the console. To do this, close 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.

SOURCE: how do you reset the whirlpool gu2400 xtp83

Can be caused by detection of a heater circuit problem. You can reset by running the diagnostic cycle. To turn of the diagnostic cycle, press: HEATED DRY button, then NORMAL button, HEATED DRY button again, then NORMAL button. The cycle runsfor ~22 mins. When it completes, the blinking light should go out. You can then try running the dishwasher again. If the problem comes back, the heater element or Thermister may need to be replaced

I have a whirlpool gu2400 dishwasher. The spring loaded soap dispenser door does not open during the wash cycle to release the soap.


Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor or a solinoid to release the door at a specific time during the cycle. So for proper cleaning the soap cup is nessesary . The part isn't that expensive and fairly simple repair.

Have lost my manual. Cannot remember when putting in the dishwasher salt, should the cap be showing the red spot? Not sure at what point you put in the salt? Thanks for your help


Not sure if you are referring to the dishwasher detergent or the rinse-aid.

The two items are mentioned on pages 13 and 14 of the user guide for GU2400 model.

Hope this helps. Cannot find any mention of salts or cap red spot.

Whirpool dish washer model #Gu2400 -dishes are clean but clean light keeps flashing


Hi



Thanks for using FixYa. 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).




Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

GU2400GTX


electronics fail most often when new. would not be surprised to see you have a logic board failure.
a new unit should not have any issue that would contribute to a malfunction, so looking for door switch problems or motor problems seems like a waste. call the service center for the unit.
good luck
