Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Start light flashes - lot of water in machine - she no work!

ADP 951 dishwasher is not working - found a quantity of water in the machine after last wash yesterday - the start light is flashing but won't turn the machine on although I can get it started for about 20 seconds by holding the start button down for a while but then the machine cuts out. The machine is 9 years old but had little use.

    Drain has been completely cleared but still doesn't work. We had a serviceman in about two months ago when we had the same problem but he said that we were using the wrong (and too much) dishwashing powder. He said that we were lucky that an expensive part underneath the dishwasher was OK - not sure the name of the part he was speaking about. I have changed to the recommended brand of powder and have been careful not to overfill the powder receptacle.

    Check the drain for debris, that maybe the reason for the remaining water. Holding the button down for a while isn't good.

    i would say there is still some clogging .....remove machine and have a good look underneith the pump itself may be cloged ....if this is beyond your skillset you may have to call service man back

    note ..please use liquid detergent ....and you should only need to fill compartment about half way ....if machine is not cleaning dishes it may mean it's time for a new machine ...very important to get a good machine , the cheap machines are garbage ...i recommend the "whirlpool quiet partner" about $500 bucks but worth every penny ....

    good luck

Flashing light

I had this problem at home too, it turned out to be a kink in the water outlet pipe. I straightened out the kink in the pipe, put duct tale around it to strenghten it and the dishwasher has been working perfectly since.

Start light flashing

start light on and no other action could mean that the door catch has gone faulty, test accordingly and replace if needed, no wash cycle will work if this item is faulty, the waste outlet pump may be the only part that will work on some models, this is a safety feature hope i have helped if so please rate me, work safe unplug when testing
