    My problem is virtually identical. My model is GU2548XTPS3. The "clean" LED flashes 7 times slowly and pauses, then flashes 7 times and pauses, etc. When I set the options and press start, the "start" LED blinks 3 times fast and goes off. The other LEDs stay on and the "time" displays "--" and the "clean" LED flashes as described above (7 times, pause, etc.). After about a minute, the other option LEDs go out and only the "clean" blinks as described.



    When I press "cancel" the timer shows "2" and I can hear the drain pump go on. Again, the "clean" LED blinks and pauses as above. After 2 minutes, the timer counts down and the pump stops.



    No combination of cleaning cycle options seems to work. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    I have the same problem. The clean light is flashing. I tried this solution, did not work. I press cancel/drain and can hear the drain motor run. But after this if I open & close the dishwasher, click on light & try to start the light above start/resume blinks , clean LED continues to blink, nothing starts.

  • MarcC Mar 24, 2008

    I have the same problem. When I select a normal wash cycle and hit start, the "Status Sensing Clean" LED light blinks on and off. If I hit the cancel button, the drain motor kicks and the time remaining display shows 2. After the two minutes, the Status Sensing Clea" LED is still blinking. I unplugged the dishwasher in hopes that whatever computer chip in it would reset, however, the Status Sensing Clean" LED still blinks when I plug it back in. It is two and a half years old and is unusable in this condition.



    Any help would be appreciated.

    Quiet Partner III, I found the normal light flashing one night and dashes in the time remaining space and the dishwasher was not set to run. I removed power and replaced hoping the circuit would reset on the board but the normal light and heated dry came on with the dashes after which the heated dry turned off and the normal light started blinking again. Found the manual and tried to start diagnostics door closed, or opened and it did not make any difference. Any ideas?

  • John B Nov 11, 2008

    Normal light blinks, diagnostics does not start with door open or closed, power interrupted turns on normal and heated dry leds and dashes in time remaining. And then heat dry turns off and normal blinks. no response from any buttons.

    the light above the "Normal" button keeps flashing.  the only thing i can do to make it stop is by unplugging the entire dishwasher.  i can't do anything with it right now.

An angel of mercy on another blog posted this solution and it worked for me as well. My Whirlpool Quiet Partner Dishwasher would not work due to the CLEAN light flashing in 7 interval sequences. I followed these steps and my dishwasher is not working perfectly...hope it works for you:

"Well for mine which is a Whirlpool Gold Model # GU2400XTPS3, I found the seq of buttons that I had to push to reset the curcuit board. I think it may of been in this forum somewhere. But I had to push - Sani Rinse, Heated Dry, Sani Rinse, Heated Dry, and then the dishwasher went through it's diagnostic cycle and then after that the light stopped blinking and the dishwasher works great. Supposily, there is a Product Tech Sheet behide the kick panel of every dishwasher, but mine was gone so I had to find the information on the internet. You might want to do a serach for the correct seq of buttons you have to push to reset the curcuit board. If you know for sure that the heating element is bad, you will have to order one. "

1. Close the door
2. Press Hi Temp, Sani Rinse, Hi Temp, Sani Rinse
3. All the the lights should come on and a diagnostic process will initiate.
4. Wait about 10 minutes and your dishwaser will be ready.


Note: If Hi Temp & Sani Rinse do not start the diagnostic process try Sani Rinse & Heated Dry instead.

My Quiet Partner III stopped working.
If I play with the buttons I can get it to start, then it does not complete a cycle.
Should I just bite the bullet and replace the computer - we had a tech in and had no clue and left!

I have a suspicion that the problem may be related to hot water. I can actually get a full cycle out of the machine sometimes if no hot water had been used almost all day (showers, clothes washer, etc.). So the dishwasher will wash. But only rarely. I am having the hot water heater checked to see whether one of the elements is gone. This was a very expensive dishwasher and I am pretty disappointed at it just quitting like it does. If the hot water is the problem, then it is even worse, since you'd think the design would permit the cycle to finish anyway. Whomever designed this product to fail like this isn't a very good engineer. I'll keep you posted on my results. Meanwhile, if you check the water and find that's you're problem, also, please let me know.

I had a similar problem. So I bought a new computer for it. It didn't fix the problem. It turned out to be the button pannel. With all of moisture surrounding it steam go into the buttons and caused all kinds of faulse info that the computer could not interpt. Had to buy new button pannel and problem was fixed.

My delay light has come on and I cant get the dishwasher to start. The delay light goes out after the time has expired but if you try to move it to the start position the light comes on again


The 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). The Control will flash the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and will disable the Start/Resume key until cleared.

To clear and reset the control press in this order: Heated Dry ? Normal ? Heated Dry ? Normal and then let the unit run for 1-2 minutes and then press Cancel and let the dishwasher complete the cancel cycle. The dishwasher should operate normally again unless it does not detect a temperature rise in the main wash cycle.

It could be caused by a Heater circuit problem if it continues to stop and flash the Clean light.

It could have one of the following failures:
Open in heater.
Open connection or component in heater circuit.
Faulty heater drive circuit on control.
It can also be caused by the wash pump not pumping water past the heater efficiently.

Ariston l63 is not rinsing proper cycle but instead flashing 12hr light


Error messages,
Your dishwasher is equipped with a safety system which is able to detect any operating anomalies. These anomalies are reported by one or two wash cycle indicator lights "G" flashing rapidly.
24463930-0h3kxpflbez5mdeb5anq3st4-3-0.jpg Flashing LED diode above the mark 12h (drying) indicates faulty NTC thermistor. So, could be faulty: thermistor NTC, wiring between NTC and control board, control board.

Does my whirlpol du1145xtpb1 dishwasherr need to be reset


SERVICE DIAGNOSTICS CYCLE
To start the Service Diagnostics Cycle, press the
following keys, in order, in less than 6 seconds, while in standby(power on but unit off):
Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal
To Rapid advance one interval at a time, press the Start key, noting that
unlike Standard cycles, the Diagnostics Cycle automatically resumes
after door openings and does not require pressing Start to resume.

Once the diagnostic cycle has run and shut off, run a normal wash cycle, empty and with no detergent, to reset the control to factory "normal" operation. Make sure there's plenty of hot water.

Clean light flashing, won't allow cycle to run.


Hi,

This machine was made by Whirlpool and the flashing clean light is a common error code for them.
Ifthe clean light is the one flashing then your dishawasher could have aheater circuit problem (depending on the age) or this could simply justbe water colder than it is used to getting.
Repeatedly press the Heated Dry and Hi-Temp Wash(scrub) which ever yours has untill all the LED lights come on, press cancel twice andtry the dishwasher again making sure to run the water at the kitchensink till it is hot before starting the dishwasher, if this trips andlocks you have a problem with the heating element, or temp sensor.
Pressthe heated dry button followed by the normal cycle button, and thenrepeat once. You should see all of the lights come on for a second ortwo, and then the dishwasher will work again.
If you haven'talready, take a look under the kick plate in front to see if there is aschematic tucked in there somewhere. Whirlpool has put theirdiagnostics for specific models on these.
I don't have the specific repair manual for you model.
So, if the above combination does not work here are two more that have worked for me.
HiTemp Wash + Air Dry + HiTemp Wash + Air Dry in less than 5 sec
or
Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry + Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry in less than 5 sec



Let me know, if you need further assistance.


Hope i helped you.

The cleaning LED flashing and dishwater not working


The blinking clean light is an indication of a malfunction. Which circuit is causing the problem is determined by the number of flashes. Sometimes these error codes can be erroneous, however. If you wish to reset the light to see if you have a glitch, or a legitimate problem, the following link may offer you some assistance:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r417123-blinking_clean_light_kenmore_whirlpool

If the error reappears you will need to refer to the tech sheet that comes with your appliance. The sheet is usually located inside the lower toe panel under the door.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

PS Your dishwasher may have a different series of buttons to push to reset the error, but the steps are similar. If you do not have the same configuration as outlined in the link I provided, refer to your tech sheet.

Clean light flashes 7 times


try doing button setting change from "Hi-Temp Wash - Normal - Hi-Temp Wash - Normal" sequence of button selections. This must occur within 6 seconds and initiates an internal diagnosis of the machine.
The process runs for about 19 min. and shuts off
During the process several LED's light up and several funtions start and stop.
If the machine has no broken systems, you should be able to open the door add some soap and the usual dirty dishes and carry on with normal operation. this is the method to reset the machine.
Most likely is that there were suds in the last cycle or the door doesn't close smoothly.

Normal cycle light flashing


If its the ormal led flashing that is normally caused by a stuck key ing the key pad. Might try unplugging and plugging back in but sounds like you need a new touchpad.

Actually, the button order to put it in a diagnostic cycle and clear the blinking clean light on the gu2500 is HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL not the other way around as Iden had posted.
