    Removed kick-plate to see how to repair blinking green lights. Was told that the keyboard needs to be replaced. If I bought this dishwasher 12/07 & registered on-line, will this be covered under warranty? Also, how do I go about having this work done?

Mine didn't have a technical sheet under the kick plate.

Mine didn't respond to the key sequence either.

We took a power hit and it wouldn't reset. I went to the breaker box and killed the breaker for about a minute, then turned it back on. That reset it completely. Normal operation now.

Hi my dishwasher won't turn on because the CLEAN Button is blinking what does this mean?


Maybe it blinks 7 times? Most likely the unit did not see the correct temp of water and thinks the heater is not working. you can usually clear this code with a "button dance". usually the 2 buttons are dealing with heated dry cycles or sanitary cycles. press one then the other repetitively 3 to 5 times, eg.(sani-cycle>heated dry>sani-cycle>heated dry...)

Tip

Flashing or blinking green clean light 7 times?


This dishwasher looks for a temperature rise of the water during a heating cycle if it fails to see this rise for multiple cycles it may shut down and blink the clean light 7 times.

The failure can be wide ranging here are a few things to check before resetting the control.

-The unit not being level so both door switches do not make contact

- The sump plugged up so water is not pumping across the heater (see sump clean out below)

- Not enough water filling the dishwasher

- The heat element is not working

To reset the control use this key dance within 5 seconds press:

HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL

This will cause you to enter the diagnosis cycle once this is finished or you hit cancel the control should be unlocked and ready to use.

Dishwasher wont work


Press back and forth between the "sani rinse" button and the "heated dry" button several times. This should put it into a "test mode" where all of the buttons light up and the dishwasher does a self-test. Wait about 5 minutes until you're sure the test is complete, and the dishwasher will operate normally. If those 2 buttons don't work, try going back and forth between the "sani rinse" button and the "hi temp wash" button.

I suspect for either of these units that the timer control boards are bad.

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.

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.
