Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

26 Answers

Whirlpool Quiet Partner II

My dishwasher will not longer work. The clean light keeps blinking. I have pushed cancel and I would drain but the light will continue to blink. I have shut the power off at the breaker and that did not work. I need help. The bad part about this is the dishwasher is not that old.

    I had the same problem. This fix worked only in that it reset it so that it would go back to the beginning of the cycle again, but the heating element was obviously gone as the dishes were not hot when the cycle was finished. I guess I'll have to replace the heating element! My dishwasher is only 2 years old!

    My dishwasher was purchased and installed in July/August 2005. It will not work at all. The clean light keeps blinking, specifically in blinks cyclically 7 times then 2 times and repeats again. We tried opening and closing the door several times and it will not cancel. We turned off the breaker and it still will not work.

  • bearparkfarm Aug 18, 2008

    Clean light blinks now for three days. Cannot use the dishwasher at all. Tried the tips on pushing back and forth the high temp wash, sani rinse and heated dry to no avail. Frustrated and my wife is even more frustrated. How do we reset this thing?

  • pjchavaux Aug 18, 2008

    I have the same problem. I think it is related to the tab that inserts itself into the door when it closes. Took the whole thing apart and everything was working but still got the blinking clean light and it won't start the wash cycle.

  • at007 Aug 26, 2008

    Same problem with cleaning button continually blinking. Hitting Sani-Rinse and Heated Dry back a forth a few times reset all the lights. THANK YOU and so easy!

  • Anonymous Sep 07, 2008

    I had the same problem with the Quiet Partner III model. I tried the solution for the Quiet Partner II model to press the sanitize and heated dry alternately and it fixed the problem perfectly.

    The dishwasher wouldn't wash the dishes; we found out that water wasn't pouring in despite the water line into the dishwasher working fine. The solution to press the "Sani Rinse" button worked -- after pressing it on and off, I ran a washing cycle and finally heard that familiar water filling sound. Thanks!

  • Anonymous Nov 28, 2008

    I just tried the same solution and I think it will work now! At least the clean button turned off. Thank goodness I found this site...3 tons of Thanksgiving dishes!

    I thought this was going to work, and the blinking stopped, but it is still not washing the dishes.  It fills up with water, and then nothing happens.  Any ideas?

  • DEZY Feb 14, 2009

    I tried the button thing but now my start/resume light flashes when i hit start. it will not wash the dishes.



  • Anonymous Mar 22, 2009

    I have been having the same problem. I've only had the dishwasher for not quite a year. It just stopped cleaning. The soap dispenser only opens occassionally and the sani light is often blinking after a cycle. The bottom rack seems clean sometimes, but the top rack never does.



    We tried cleaners, taking the top rack sprayer off and checking it for debris, all kinds of stuff, but nothing seems to work.



    I tried pressing the sani and dry buttons and got it to do its thing, and it seemed better, but it is still not right. Very frustrating!!

  • houseofdiamo Mar 28, 2009

    My whirlpool dishwasher runs in normal cycle. when it is complete the clean light comes on, but there is always water at the bottom of the unit. if i hit cancel/drain it drains. is this operating correctly, or should it drain before completion.

  • allyeagleys Apr 11, 2009

    The clean light keeps blinking and it won't start. Pressing cancel just makes it drain, but it still won't start after that.

  • joey_gonz316 May 24, 2009

    the light on the normal button keeps flashing. i need help. i tried to disconect it and start it back up but that dosen't work.

  • Anonymous May 25, 2009

    when i hit the normal button it stays in in soaking and washing mode , am i supposed to press any other buttons to get it out of this cycle?

  • Tina Mar 04, 2012

    WooooHoooo! Thanks guys, pushed the sani-rinse button and heat dry button alternately. All lights lit up and reset my dishwasher. Washing dishes as I type! Love that dishwasher and this site. Thanks again!!!!!!!

  • Jackie Stephenson Feb 23, 2013

    I have a Whirlpool Quietpartner II dishwasher, overall works great. But for some reason now there is no water coming into the unit after I press start. Then it starts working but without the water so I turn it off immediately. The water lines are connected but I can't figure out how to fix it. Any similar experiences our there or ideas? Thanks!

  • Paul Murphy Nov 30, 2013

    Awesome!!! Easiest fix ever!! Thanks for the help!

  • Anonymous Mar 29, 2014

    I set the dishwasher on pots/pans it took only 30 minutes. The clean light was on I opened and closed the light is blinking and will not go off. I hit the cancel/drain but when it finished the light is still blinking. I turned the breaker on and off didn't work still blinking even when open. I have GE Quite Partner I 8575637

Press back and forth between hi-tempwash and sani rinse several times to get all lights to come on if not then press sani rinse and heated dry back and forth several times. one of though combos will start the test mode. the test mode will stop the light from blinking and you can use the dishwasher again

I had the identical problem with the blinking clean light on the Quiet Partner™ II System. What a pain in the rear!

Clicking Sanitize and Heated Dry button back and forth made the system reset itself out of the funk it was in. Thank you for this remarkably helpful post!

The real question here is this... Why is this happening? I bet it is built in to the system to generate extra revenue for Whirl Pool service calls.

If someone is pissed off enough and has no life, maybe they can begin a class action lawsuit against Whirlpool. Anti Trust or something like that?

Works for Quiet Partner I as well - Pushed, alternatingly...HEATED DRY + HI TEMP buttons over and over. Waited for the lights to go through their sequence 2 minutes...and FIXED.

Whirlpool authorized repair center told my wife that electronics were bad and would be big $$$ to replace. Unit is only a little over 2 years old.

Thanks so much !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Made my day

I pushed the buttons as stated above and it is working again??? Wonder if this will happen on every load? You would think that Whirlpool would figure out that they have a problem by the time they get to "Quiet Partner IV"???? The last time this happened we did have a service man repair a heating sensor and it ran around $150

I've found that the blinking clean light, code 7, can be induced by using hot water excessively prior to starting the dishwasher. The felt temp of the hot water seems to be good but the dishwasher is looking for a higher temp than whats available. My work around is to rinse and load the dishwasher then put it on a delay start for a time I know that water use is minimal and hot water recovery has taken effect.

Cheers i have a whirpool 2000 and the rinse light was flashing and the start light was on constent, never would i have thought pushing a few buttons would solve it. Cheers

SOURCE: clean light is flashing

This can be a common issue with some Whirlpool manufactured dishwashers. This information may help in your situation. The following link explains how you may be able to clear the blinking clean light problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r417123-blinking_clean_light_kenmore_whirlpool

Now, keep in mind all dish washers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting.

NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.

Sometimes this can be a momentary glitch in operation. However, if the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of which circuit is causing your problem. Again, refer to your tech sheet to determine this.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you solve your problem.
