Whirlpool dishwasher heated dry not working right

We have a new whirlpool dishwasher. The manual says you can use the heated dry option with the glass express, however when we push heated dry the light flashes and goes out. No dry cycle runs.
Customer service read us the instructions out of the manual and said that was all they could do. Any thoughts?

Processor board sound bad. May be a loose plug ( or corroded connection on the plug ) . Unplug the dish washer from the wall plug before servicing. The open the front panel to expose the panel control board. Unplug the panel plugs and inspect them to assure no corrotion is apparent. If you see corrotion, use a pencil erracer to clean all contact points on the board and clean the plug the best possible. Plug the dishwasher plug back in the wall and check the unit for proper operation. If the operation is not correct, replace the circuit board. I hope this helps

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold GU15 dishwasher won't start

The appliance repair technician just diagnosed the problem for me. He says it's a bad touchpad, and it would cost $257 for him to replace it. Thought I'd share the diagnosis in case anyone else comes upon this thread.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Type 575-0 Dishwasher has a film on the glass ware

try only filling the detergent cup halfway. but before doing that run a cup of vinegar through the dishwasher. that should solve the problem. you are using to much detergent. plus use powder detergent if it is stated in your owners manuel.

Dishes are soaking wet at end of cycle. Is this normal?


No, it's not normal for them to be soaking wet at the end of the cycle, but there are things that can affect this. First, make sure you have Heated Dry selected. Next, make sure you are using rinse-aid (Jet Dry), because the new dishwashers don't use as much heat as the older dishwashers, and Jet Dry will greatly aid in the drying. Be aware that plastics won't get dry in any dishwasher. Other things you can do is turn on the extra heat options in the wash cycle, and turn on the Sani-Rinse option (if you DW has such options). Otherwise, you may have a heater or controller problem.

I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher Model #WDF310PLAW5. It's only about a month old but it will no longer allow me to select the heat dry option.


My Whirlpool dishwasher stopped heating the water and air for the hot air dry option. It would not accept the command for these options. My older unit had a burned out heating element in the bottom of the wash cabinet. Yours may be burned out or simply have a loose connection to the heating element. Part is not expensive, but the installation is a bit extensive. It should be covered under manufacturers warranty.

I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher Model #GU240CXTPB1. The normal light won't stop blinking. Tried turning the breaker to reset, but still blinks. No other button works.


Whirlpool dishwasher reset sequence is usually to hit the heat dry then normal then heat dry then normal buttons within 5 seconds and it usually resets.

Whirlpool dishwasher won't start


I have had the same problem with my dishwasher. I.e., the buttons don't respond (no LED) when you press them. Only the "Cancel/Drain" light works and the dishwasher reacts to cancel/drain. I found a diagnostic in the kick panel that has you press; "heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal" within 6 seconds and the washer goes through a diagnostic. All of the tests perform as they should and at the end the washer works again. I don't know why unless doing this resets the circuit board. Does anyone know?

Whirlpool dishwasher reset code


Yup, found it on another site..I had the same issue today.

Reset code: Push 1. Heat Dry 2. Normal 3. Heat Dry 4. Normal

wait about 2 minutes as the controller resets itself. You should see all the leds flash on and then wash and rinse leds stay on for about 30 seconds. A minute or so later ..presto, my machine worked again.

My machine is not the GU3200XTP, but in the same Whirlpool tall tub series (same manual) so leds may not have the same name.

These dishwashers normally have a "Control Lock" mode.  It's in the manual.  It is provided for child safety.  It's often controlled by holding the "No Heat Dry" button for 4 seconds or more -- same procedure turns it on or off.
