Whirlpool Dishwasher stops during cycle, clean light flashing

Whirlpool Dishwasher DU1055XTPQ0.
Purchased this dishwasher 3 years ago and have been having problems from the beginning. The problem is that it stops during mid cycle and the clean button flashes 7 times. I am aware this is a very common problem. When it was still under warranty, we had a service call on it, and fixed the problem by setting our hot water heater over 130 degrees. The 2nd time this occurred and it wasn’t under warranty, the service company was nice enough to let us know the fix – Push the High Temp Button then Heated Dry button - hit back and forth 3 times and the washer will reset itself. This usually will reset the machine for about 3 months and then it happens again. It has happened again and I have tried to reset it 3 times but now it does not fix it.

2 months ago, we also had a problem were had it shut down during a cycle but that time we did not have any lights or power to the unit, and had to replace the fuse, which did fix that problem. (I am one of the lucky ones that has a husband that is very handy)

Since these are such a common problems, doesn’t Whirlpool have a fix? Or is my fix simply to replace the unit? Do you think I will ever buy another Whirlpool appliance again?

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.

I have a QuietGuard 3. The sequence Hi Temp, Heated Dry two times initiated a "lock on" so I tried reversing it to Heated Dry then Hi Temp (twice) and now my machine is operating normally. Thanks so much for this helpful, money saving information!

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.

Hi
Door latch.
Open and close the door to make sure the door latch is securely fastened.
Check the dishwasher wiring for a possible loose connection where it connects to the house wiring.
Fuses or circuit breakers.
Check your house fuses or circuit breakers to make sure you have power to the dishwasher.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Just installed a whirlpool dishwasher du1055xtpq0. when trying to start it the start light just flashes


Sounds like the door isn't latching properly,sometimes this can be from not being level,the tub can torque to one side and the latch doesn't line up correctly.

Hello bckp,
Welcome to Fixya


If your dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle

Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing? Opening the door or
interrupting the power stopped the cycle. Close the door and
press START/RESUME.
Does the Start/Resume indicator flash 3 times when you
press START/RESUME? The dishwasher is waiting for you to
open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door,
then press START/RESUME.
Is the door closed tightly and latched?
(NOTE: On models with a dual-digit display, the control
displays “- -” during a cycle if it believes the door is not
latched.)
Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the “Cycle Selection
Charts.”
Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
It is normal for certain cycles to repeatedly pause for several
seconds during the main wash.

If the dishwasher will not fill

Check the overfill protection float that is able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.

Let me know if any of these procedures helped you?
