Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
clean indicator that flashes/blinks 7 times and then repeats, indicates
a problem in the dishwasher which should be investigated and not just
the control 'reset'! That is why the control will not let the
dishwasher start once such a condition is detected.
If the dishwasher's electronic control doesn't detect a water temperature increase during the main wash cycle, that symptom can occur. No water temperature increase could be caused by a problem in the heater element, its in-line thermostat, the related wiring or a problem in the electronic control.
It is also possible just the washer not spraying properly (possibly from blockage in the filter or problem in the pump), the dishwasher not filling sufficiently or draining prematurely or even a problem in the door latching mechanism's switch(es) could cause it.
*Some actual investigation should be undertaken to isolate and correct the cause of the symptom.*
Once corrected, the error display may have to be cleared from the control manually. That can usually be done by putting the unit into diagnostic mode by pressing the key sequence 'Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal' and then pressing cancel.
