Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers

Open Question

I have a blinking cancel light on model GU1200xtlt1 and will not start in any cycle. Also if I push another button it flashes rinse button and cancel button. Before this it ran in Sani Clean over and over again and I could not change the cycle. I emptied out a bit of water from the bottom because it did not drain also and the water was not smelling too good.

SOURCE: Clean light flashs seven times, stops and then does the same over again.

bellman, on this model I believe you can clear the fault by pressing high temp scrub--air dry--high temp scrub--air dry in that order. Your normal cycle on this dishwasher is approx 97 minutes without the thermal holds, (pauses to heat the water to proper temps.) So of course it's going to go over 97 minutes. This is for heavy soil. Light soil, approx 89 minutes. Some models have a soil sensor, some don't. If the sensor is out of specs..it could add to long wash times. The heater may in fact be the problem, he needs to check it. The heater runs through the nuetral side of the door switch so you want to make sure the switch is closing and the dishwasher is level and secure. He also wants to check out the resistance of the thermistor, should read 48 to 52K ohms at aprox. 75 degrees. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher - Blinking Quick Rinse Light

My guess is that the foil that the buttons are mounted to is defective.  The control module "reads" the buttons that are pushed by the fact that the resistance between two pins on the circuitboard becomes zero ie. your pushing the button shorts out two pins.  the foil could have moistire damage or the resiistance of the tracks could be too high.  Solution for both would be to replace the control panel button foil.

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.

Start light is red


Really need more info, like approximate age and model number. Also does it still run, or does it just sit there? Does the light blink? Does it beep at you? Can you change cycles or options? Can you press Cancel to cancel the cycle and start over? Did you try unplugging the dishwasher and plugging it back in?

Green start button won't stop blinking


START/RESET status indicator light flashing


You have pressed the indicator light flashing START/RESET pad while the START/RESET dishwasher is running. This will cancel the cycle. The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains (about 90 seconds).


Press the pad once to start the dishwasher. Press the pad a second time when the dishwasher is running only if you wish to cancel the cycle.


Power to the dishwasher was turned off while a cycle was running and power has just been restored to the dishwasher. The blinking lights indicate that the dishwasher is draining the potential water inside.


The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains. A new cycle will start automatically.


Good luck

My kenmore dw just stopped running thru cycles except drain


Hello, With the information you supplied I'm going to assume the light is blinking 7 times and pausing then blinking 7 times and so on. With the door cracked open hit the following button combination: -high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry Then close the door and hit cancel. The pump will run for a few moments and then you should be all set. Hope this helps Mike

Cancel Light Flashing on Kitchen Aid Dishwasher


I ran into this same problem. Cutting the power didnt reset it.

After power reset, mine had the normal led blinking. If I pressed cancel, then the cancel and china button leds would start blinking too.

I pulled out the trouble shooting guide (from behind the baseboard kick panel under the dishwasher door). It that if the dishwasher wont run and button LEDs are blinking there is a short circuit in the keypad. It gave a keypad diagnostic sequence which I followed. (disconnect keypad and try to initiate the diagnostic cycle without the keypad by disconecting the yellow leads to OWI sensor twice in less than 6 seconds.

I could hear the diagnostic cycle start, so the problem is a bad keypad. Will order a new one tomorrow and let you know if it works.
