Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher
Clean Light flashing indicates the heating element is malfunctioning. How can I fix this myself ??
Yes this is a heater fault detection error. The unit may not be heating the water resulting in unsanitary dishes so the unit shuts down in this fault. Also the door may not have completely shut resulting in the heater not working, but everything else does (the heater common line is broken at the door switch. Clear the fault by entering diagnostics with this key dance heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal. All the leds will light, you can then press cancel and try another wash cycle. If fault occurs again, you must repair heater problem.

Try the door switch! Take the metal tab that the door latches on to and bend it down just a little. This fixed my problem! Push on the door when it closed to close it tighter. If you here a click, and then another click when you release the pressure then the switch could be your problem.
Thanks to 'the dr' I fixed my machine. I have been trying to fix my Quiet Partner III for months now, I knew it had to be something fairly simple, because it appeared to function fine except for the heating element, which I was not sure was working. I had to keep clearing the fault to get the machine to run, but it always stopped short and gave the blinking clean light. I read lots of posts about the possibility of the heating element being bad or the contol board, but this was the first one I read that mentioned the door switch, I had assumed that there was just one switch in the door latch. There are in fact two. One for everything except for the heating element and one for the heating element. When I pushed on the switch in the door, I could hear two clicks, one right after the other. If I pushed the door in a little harder, after the door was closed, I could hear the second click which promptly unclicked when I relieved the pressure. I knew then that I had found the problem. Bending the thin metal piece that the door latches onto fixed the problem!
