SOURCE: Whirlpool dishwasher clean light flashing

That means the control sensed that the heater in the d/w did not operate 3 times in a row. so the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. use a meter to see if it reads open, if so order a heater assy it will come with a new control replace it to. If your heater checks good press in sequence normal wash , heat dry ,normal wash,heat dry , normal wash , heat dry three times within 6 sec all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that d/w does not heat it's own water your incoming water temp should be 120. the d/w will maintain that temp. when starting your d/w first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your d/w this insures your unit fills with hot water and not cold

SOURCE: Kenmore dishwasher, model 665.170 344 01. "Clean" light keeps flashing and will not stop. Have tried everything in the manual and the light still will not stop flashing.

If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses then repeats...

If the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive).

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).

SOURCE: whirlpool gold dishwasher will not work the clean

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.

SOURCE: ''clean'' light flashing (whirlpool Dishwasher GU2300XTLS1 model)

I had the same problem recently and a repair person came to my home to fix the dishwasher. He said he had to reset the control panel. He did this simply by making sure the soap dispenser door inside the washer was closed, then making sure the main dishwasher door was closed and locked. Then he quickly pushed the Heated Dry button and the Hight Temp wash button alternately. He said each button needed to be pushed twice within five seconds. After he did this all the lights on the control panel came on, then turned themselves off before the washer went in to a test cycle. This simple reset fixed the whole problem. Works great so far.

Clean light blinks on whirlpool dishwasher won't run


When the light flashes 7 times it means there is/was a problem with the hot water, including a bad heater element. Flip the breaker for a minute and hopefully that will clear the error; otherwise, here's a website that will take you through resetting it.

Won't start/run. CLEAN light blinks continuously. manual drain (CANCEL)button works model number DU1100XTPQ9


When the clean light is blinking, the self-test on the dishwasher has reported a problem with the heating circuit. It needs to be fixed. If the dishwasher is still under warranty, call for service.

The manual for the DU1100XTPQ9 is here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/4164/WHIRLPOOL-Dishwasher-L0704454?brand_name_search=DU1100XTPQ9+WHIRLPOOL . Various parts diagrams and links to purchase the parts are here http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Whirlpool-Parts/Dishwasher-Parts/Model-DU1100XTPQ9/1198/0130000 .

I hope this helps.

It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

Some lights are flushing and the dishwasher does


Hi,

If the clean light is flashing it is an indication of the water not heating up. I have attached a link to a sheet explaining what might be causing it and how to reset the control so you can use the dishwasher again.

Clean light flashing

If other lights than the clean light are flashing that is an indication there is a short circuit in the keypad control and that part would need replaced. Let me know if you need details on replacing that. If so I would need the complete model number from the tag on the dishwasher just inside the door.

Ive got a flashing clean light and the dishwasher won't run. Is there a reset button or a common part that causes this problem?


Flashing clean light on a Whirlpool dishwasher is a heater malfunction (sorta) this failure code is generated when the unit does not sense a 5 degree rise in water temperature with in 15 seconds (give or take depending on model) some of the earlier models could show code under certain circumstances such as incoming water to cold.

With control off alternately press high temp scrub and heated dry till all the lights flash on and it will go into a diagnostic mode hit cancel/drain button twice and retry using the dishwasher if the code persists try running Your kitchen sink until water is hot then running the dishwasher if the code comes up again begin inspecting the heater in bottom of wash tub for damage or signs of shorting also pull out from under the counter to inpect wiring to the heater, if these look good test the safety cutoff towards the front bottom of the unit small black and silver button sized componant with two wires to it for continuity.

Still ok remove the thermistor from bottom of pump and clean it and test the ohms according to the tech sheet on the back of the toe panel on front of dishwasher, if this is ok test run the dishwasher with a high temp scrub option selected and test voltage to the heater at the two connectors directly at the heater if there is no voltage and You have properly checked the previous items the control has a bad heater relay and will require replacement.
