I have a Whirlpool DU1055XT. The clean light is flashing. The manual says the dishwasher has malfunctioned. Check the heater circuit. Is the heater circuit inside the cabinet or elsewhere? How hard is this to repair?

Hi,

The flashing light indicates the water is not heating, there could be several reasons for this, I have created instructions on how to reset the dishwasher so you can use it and why it may have occurred. If you follow these and still have trouble let me know and we can dig into it deeper.

Dishwasher will not sustain a start up, purchased in 2010 and seldom used


It is very likely the door springs are too tight and causes the door latch to come off. Maybe the dishwasher needs to be levelled properly or adjustment done to springs.
Check pages 16 and 17 in this installation manual.

Dishwasher will not sustain a start


can you hear if the water is coming into the washer? if not then your problem may be the water inlet valve. it is located where the water line connects to the unit.

The Clean light is flashing and unit will not start. Manual says it is a heating circuit malfunction call a repairman. Heating element tests good, wiring appears fine. What is needed?


Hi, the reason why you are getting the flashing light is because the dishwasher failed to detect a 4 degrees rise in the water temp during the first 8 minutes of the cycle. Some reasons for this is a faulty heater, door switch,(heater runs through the nuetral side of the door switch), lack of water, d/w not filling correctly, should be just below heating element. Clear the fault by pressing following order. .

The dishwasher will go through a cancel cycle (drain the tub) and will then let you start it up again.

I have a quite partner 2 and it is stuck on the clean cycle and the light is blinking on and off. It will not work when I push any other buttons.


whirlpool dishwashers sense the water temperature in them the clean light flashing 7 times means either the heater element is not working or the water temperature going into the unit is to cold, start the water at the sink before starting the dishwasher now to get rid of the flashing light press the hi temp wash button and then the sani rinse button press one then the other over and over until all the lights come on it will then go in to a test mode when it completes the flashing light will go out that will solve your problem
