Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
As you mentioned the coil is burned that can also be the problem.it has to be replaced.but also other possibility is faulty shut-off valve in the dishwasher makes the unit shut -off after certain period of time.
so check the shut-off valve also .
Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher. The shut off valve is usually under the kitchen sink or in the basement or crawlspace near the location of the dishwasher.also check the water inlet valve :------ if its faulty it needs replacement.
Remove the dishwasher's kickplates. The kickplates are usually secured with two to four screws at the upper and lower corners.
Locate the water inlet valve, usually near the front of the dishwasher. You'll see two terminals on the valve with wires attached to them, a water supply line (usually copper tubing) from the house, and a rubber or plastic water feed tube going to the dishwasher.
1 Disconnect the water supply line from the valve by removing the brass compression nut holding it in place.
2 The water supply line is connected to a brass fitting on the valve, usually a 90 degree elbow fittting. Remove this fitting. If you can't get it out of the valve, go to the hardware store and buy another one for $0.78.
3 Remove the screws holding the valve to the dishwasher frame.
4. Remove the wires from the valve by grasping the metal terminal with needle nose pliers and pulling, working it back and forth if you need to. Do not pull on the wires themselves because you could detach them from the terminals.
5. Remove the water feed tube from the valve. You'll see a small hose clamp that you'll remove with a pair of pliers.
6. Reinstall the old brass fitting for the water supply line onto the new valve. Use Teflon tape around the threads to make a water-tight connection.
7. Ok, now just install the new valve in the reverse order of the way you removed it.
8. Turn on the dishwasher water supply and check for leaks.
9. Reinstall the kickplates, turn on the power, and run the dishwasher. ---- you can get the required parts from.www.repairclinic.com ------------ thanks.this will help.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

If clean light is blinking then it may be an
issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to
the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error.
If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing
this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air
Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub,
energy saver dry or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated Dry.
Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button
and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue
with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to
lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and
is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a
multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on
Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum
and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you
need more information.
