Re: whirlpool gu2400 clean light is blinking 7 times

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.

Clean light blinking

If the clean light blinks four times and then pauses and then blinks four times again and repeats, the problem is your pump motor. If there is water under the DW the pump clamp has probably failed and sprayed water onto and inside the motor. Call a certified Kitchen Aid repair service.

How do you reset the whirlpool gu2400 xtp83 dishwasher. the clean light is flashing. The unit will not start

Can be caused by detection of a heater circuit problem. You can reset by running the diagnostic cycle. To turn of the diagnostic cycle, press: HEATED DRY button, then NORMAL button, HEATED DRY button again, then NORMAL button. The cycle runsfor ~22 mins. When it completes, the blinking light should go out. You can then try running the dishwasher again. If the problem comes back, the heater element or Thermister may need to be replaced

Blinking Clean light in Whirpool dishwasher

Control is programmed to stop running and not allow any further cycles if it detects a water heating problem (no temperature increase detected in heated Main Wash on 3 consecutive cycles). Control blinks the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and disables the Start/Resume key until cleared. Running Diagnostics clears the control and allows it to operate again. The water heating problem must be fixed or the control will stop running again. See potential causes below. Heater circuit problem: ■ Open in heater. ■ Open connection or component in heater circuit. ■ Faulty heater drive circuit on control. 1. Check operation of heater in Diagnostics cycle. 2. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power. 3. Check resistance of heater and all components and connections in the water heating circuit or heat dry circuit.

Whirlpool quiet partner I won't run just keeps blinking

is the cean light blinking 7 times and then repaeating?? If so this is a water heating fault and means that the computer sensed that the water temp didnt rise just 3deg in the last main wash cycle. If its not blinking 7times then repeat, it sounds like the user interface (membrane switches) have failed. Let me know more and i can help.

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.

Dishwasher lights blinking

QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.
