Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTPS Built-in Dishwasher
Unfortunately I cannot view the comments from other fixya.com consultants so I am coming in cold on this one.
But it appears you are trying to isolate the problem of why the stop/ cancel light are flashing. I suppose the only solution offered in the user guide is to contact the whirlpool service.
Have you considered if the dishwasher is level and fully secured to the underside of the counter. The door switch needs to be fully engaged (both live and neutral switches) otherwise this model is known to cause faults.
Wiring diagram is shown above. Not sure how good it is.
YOu can download the service manual from http://www.AllRepairManuals.com/ for $4.95 which has all the details.

Ok please find above service manuals, and a user manual too, for your generic unit, please use theses to troubleshoot and hopefully repair. These manual are what engineers use, to troubleshoot and repair these items.
Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
Below is a FIX, that works all to often regardless of why, it often works, so if all else fails give it a go...
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

Hit the keys in this order:
high-temp---> heat-dry---> high-temp----> heat-dry What this does is it will put the unit in a diagnostic mode. It may take a minute or two but should clear everything. If not, try again. Any power interruption while the dishwasher is heating or drying, can throw it off. The manufacturer will not tell you this but will insist on coming to your home and charging you a big fee. Hope this helps you!
