Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
There is no sequence to the flashing light, just continually flashes with the door open or closed. I cut power and reset power but no joy.
Change main control board

Testimonial: "After removing the control board I noticed there was a lot of old critter remains and dried critter shells across the solder joints. I took an old toothbrush and air can, cleaned it all up and put it back together hoping that would fix it, and to surprise it worked, no more flashing lights. Thanks for your suggestion."

ga, behind the toe panel on the bottom there should be a tech sheet explaining how to put the dishwasher in the test mode. See if you can enter the test mode. If you can't, you probably have a stuck or shorted keypad. Catriver...post back

Try this solution first
Push the Hi-temp and then push the Sani-rinse. Go back and forth multiple times on these two buttons. I found that after a handfull of pushes that a "1" came up on the display. I continued to keep rotating the two buttons and then a "2" came up on the display and the dishwater started it's "drain" phase. I then hit cancel to clear and then I selected the cycle I wanted. The washer started up just as normal at this point.

If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:
Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.
Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.
Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.
Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

Try resetting breaker if there is no off/on lightswitch type. If continues its the control board a really basic repair skills needed.

Either the spray arm is not turning, or the temperature is not getting hot enough which would explain both symptoms. Or the water pressure is too low. Unless the detergent door is faulty and needs to be replaced.
