    My Whirlpool Gold displays a "2" when "Cancel" is pressed. The unit then goes into a 2-minute drain cycle at which time the 2 disappears. The only response that I can get from the washer is to press Cancel, at which point the unit again goes into the 2-minute drain cycle. No other cycles light up when pressed. Any suggestions?

    I have the exact problem as ronmac had:



    "My Whirlpool Gold displays a "2" when "Cancel" is pressed. The unit then goes into a 2-minute drain cycle at which time the 2 disappears.

    My only difference is the "air dry" light will come on if pressed also.



    This happened once before and it asked for rinse fluid. I gave it some and it worked fine ever since. Today I had the same problem without the rinse fluid light. I added some anyway, but no change. HELP

    Dishwasher will not work at all. It went through a complete cycle until the drain cycle--it quit draining and then would not come on at all

    my whirlpool dishwasher clena light blinks seven times and wont cycle on.

    i tried unplugging it. nothing works. i do not have the money for a repair man, im very handy and would like to do it myself.

  • remi908 Dec 30, 2008

    I am having the same problem. I don't know if this is the model I have or not, but to enter the diagnostic menu and reset the machine, you need to press heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal. This will reset it. Only problem is the problem still exists. After 22mins of wash time, it still goes to same fault.

Igsanders.. that is a heater fault code. toggle between heated dry and normal until all light light up . press cancel. now ensure door closes without striking cabinet and the unit is level. this fault normally has nothing to do with the heater but rather the nuetral to the door switch which it shares with the heater.it will now operate again.

My Whirlpool GU2400XTP83 stopped during the wash cycle and there is a blinking light above the "light" cycle button. I can not reset the dishwasher, stop or start it.


Hello,

To reset the dishwasher push in this order the,

HIGH TEMP WASH- HEATED DRY- HIGH TEMP WASH- HEATED DRY - CANCEL/OFF

the control will be reset...but more importantly how many times ina row does the light flash..it will indicate what error code its displaying??

example if it flashes 4 times then a pause then flashes 4 times again its displaying the error code#4
7 flashes then pause then 7 flashes its displaying the error code#7 ect ect

The dish washer starts to fill then stops and starts again then stops and the red light blinks on and off


Hello,
Does it blink seven times, pause, then seven times, pause, seven times, etc. ?? If so you may have a bad heater element. Or the water temp into the D/W is not hot enough. Most machines require at least 120 degree water to work properly. Take a close look at the heater if it looks ok you'll have to check it and the heater circuit with a meter. Turning the breaker off for 7 to 10 minutes will reset the control board but wont fix the heater of course. Good Luck

My dishwasher isn't working. The clean button


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, and then repeats this occurs when the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...


-high temp wash

-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

My Whirlpool DU1145XTP won't turn on. Clean light


Check the themistor in the control panel. Radio Shack sells these for about $1.30 each. I replaced the one in my dishwasher three years ago and have had no issues since.

Clean light flashes


You will have to reset the console. To do this, close the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

Whirlpool dishwasher


Do a "key dance" between normal and heated dry , going bak and forth six times. this will rester the heater fault. That is the clean light flashing code. Now you have to find the cause. Most likely is that there were suds in the last cycle or the door doesn't close smoothly. If the door sttrikes the cabinet in any way it will cause that problem.
