Question about Dishwashers
Have a model 2150 heated mattress pad, one year old, with dual controls. One control is blinking and won't heat up the pad. I have unplugged twice and checked the plugs into the pad itself, and everything is secure. Anyone know why the light may be blinking? Must be a solution... thanks
First, I am not familiar with your particular Pad. But they all work in a similar fashion. Second... you would be wiser taking your pad to an electrician if you are not competent with electricity. (Especially 240V AC where I am.)
If it's only 120v AC then the sting is not as bad. I've had Both!
The Pad is not worth your life.
Obviously the AC power is OFF & disconnected first.
Use a multimeter in Ohms or Beeper Mode to look for an open circuit in the element(s) inside the blanket.
If the pad connector comes to the edge somewhere then this is where to test the pins. No AC Power Needed.
On Ohms mode it should show some small resistance in the element. Thats why it heats up....
If the element is internally broken (open circuit) then I doubt it can be repaired.
A multimeter can be a useful tool in a modern house these days.
They can be picked up pretty cheap now. $10 to $50.
The probes can check for AC & DC voltages.
The current function would never be used by the average person.
The Beeper Test uses the internal battery for open & closed circuit testing. The Ohms function will show the resistance of elements and the like.
If you are unsure how to use one then ask the supplier or an electrician / technician to show you.

will these units (silo and jtrip) start back on their own? if so, it is likely they are heating the water.
otherwise it sounds like a logic board, unless there is a defective door switch or sensor issue.
electronics seem to be a recurring problem with whirlpool.
i would ask whirlpool (electorlux) to either buy it back or fix it.

SOURCE: blinking lights on control panel
Same issue, machine is about 30 days past waranty. Door switch broke, but of course they (GE repair) do not fix the switch, you have to order the Escutcheon Body (whole panel) to fix ~$350 total.

I have the same dishwasher with the same problem, try pushing the delay/resume button, then the drain/off button. When the lights go off start your wash cycle.
