Make sure that the door is closing properly. A problem with the door switch can cause the dishwasher to stop in the middle of the cycle but it will not normally cause the rinsing and normal lights to blink. A blinking light on an unresponsive console usually indicates a stuck button on the control keypad. The stuck button is normally the one that it blinking. A bad keypad console will often cause this problem. This failure can sometimes be caused by a failed electronic control board. A technician will normally shut off the breaker for the dishwasher and test the console keypad using the matrix chart shown in the image below. To test the Normal Wash key, the technician would unplug the ribbon connector from the keypad that is plugged into the electronic control board. The continuity between Pins P1-13 and P1-4 would be checked. With the key not depressed, this reading should be open (infinite resistance). With the Normal Wash Key depressed, this resistance reading should be near zero ohms (closed). If the reading is closed in both conditions, then the key is stuck and the keypad would need to be replaced. An intermittent problem can be difficult to detect.If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can try checking the keypad when the dishwasher freezes up and the light are blinking. If the keypad is okay, then the electronic control board would need to be replaced. Excessive temperature or moisture could affect the electronic control board or the console. You may be able to continue using the dishwasher for a while if you avoid the high temperature cycles

Possible fault with the main controller board or there is a wrong input to the processor. Check the output from the controller to the INLET VALVE and if there is no ouput the board is a suspect. if there is output with no water flow then the valve needs to be checked. Also check the connectors to the motor, check for any short or moisture on the board.

Whirpool Dishwasher ADP5966 Turned dishwasher on. Only light that comes on is normal wash light. Start button is flashing when normal wash light is on. On pressing start button dishwasher does not work


Most likely the door switch is not making proper contact when you shut the door or the Start button is faulty. Needs someone to look in the door panel to fix.

My Diplomat dishwasher ADP8352 keeps stopping


Switch off the machine at your plug end and switch ON.

Check incoming water flow. Check and fill rinse-aid liquid in the dispenser. Check dish washer salt dispenser and fill.

These are the only actions an user can try.

Whirpool dish washer model #Gu2400 -dishes are clean but clean light keeps flashing


Hi



Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing 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.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring).
It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).




Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Dose not finnish washing and starts bleeping and start light keep flahing. water is hot by have not dryed


Neighbor had a similar problem with a GE dishwasher except it wouldn't start and kept beeping when door was closed. So the door was left closed, and while it was beeping, turned off the circuit breaker that fed power to it. Waited about 30 seconds, turned circuit breaker back on, bleeping had stopped, dishwasher was reset. Normal and heated dry were already selected, (since I had tried pressing those two before all this to force a reset), then pressed start and it ran again. Hope this might help you.
