Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher GU2700XTSB1 and the pots & pans light flashes and the washer will not work.

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

Posted on Jan 02, 2017

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."

SOURCE: Dishwasher's "Pot-n-Pans" light flashing

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.

SOURCE: Whirlpool dishwasher won't work at all

Hi,

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.

SOURCE: The detergent door won't open during the cycle and

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.

Whirlpool du1055xtss3 not working


I dont know if this indicates a malfunction or not. One user manual may cover several years while many modifications can take place. Ask yourself if any other part of the process can contribute to this. You have electricity to the control board or it will not flash these display indicators.
Is the water on?
Is the waterline kinked under or behind the machine?
Is it connected to hot water? A heater raises the hot water quickly but cold water takes alot longer to reach operating temp. Since the hottest program id pots and pans, this may indicate the heater is bad but since you were able to change the display to pp and normal I think you entered into a controls sequence that technicians can do to make changes to some parameters like temperature setting or water hardness. See if you can get a whirlpool tech to break the grip on his service manual and send you a page by email. Good luck.

Pots and pans and normal lights blinking


That reset sequence code didn't work for me. We tried everything on a ton of forums.
What I did to fix our Whirlpool dishwasher was to disconnect the drainage tube from the garbage disposal. I noticed it smelled really bad so I figured it was clogged. I used a bucket to catch the water left in the tube. I took the sprayer from the sink and flushed out the tube. 4 pumpkin seeds and a couple of beans landed in my bucket. I flushed it a couple times. I hooked the tube back up to the disposal and sure enough all the lights returned to normal. I pressed start and it came on.

Flashing pot and pan light


shut off the power and see if the unit will reset. if its plugged in, it will be easy, look under the sink. if not, try a breaker.
let the power stay off for about a minute.
then back on.
if not restored, then you have logic boards that failed.
sorry,
good luck
