Re: whirlpool quiet partner I won't run just keeps...
Is the cean light blinking 7 times and then repaeating?? If so this is a water heating fault and means that the computer sensed that the water temp didnt rise just 3deg in the last main wash cycle. If its not blinking 7times then repeat, it sounds like the user interface (membrane switches) have failed. Let me know more and i can help.

HERE ARE TOOLS NEEDED AND INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO SOLVE THE DRAINING PROBLEM BELOW.
(A) Clean cloth(s) (B) Wrench (if necessary)
Whirlpool brand dishwashers come in black, brown, stainless steel or white finishes and a variety of sizes as well. Most Whirlpool dishwashers are energy efficient, and many have features such as a sanitizing rinse, enhanced sound effects, large capacity tubs and adjustable shelves and racks. However, none of these features will help users much if the dishwasher is not draining. While this issue may require professional repair, some troubleshooting steps may help determine if there is a relatively simple cause for the problem.
1 Verify that the Whirlpool dishwasher has not lost power due to a power failure or motor overload. Wait a few minutes to see if the motor automatically resets and resumes operation. Reset the circuit breaker or fuse if necessary.
2 Press or select "Start" to resume the cycle if the dishwasher was stopped mid-cycle. Choose a new drain cycle if necessary to remove excess water from the unit.
3 Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from power. Examine the connection between the dishwasher and the garbage disposer, usually located underneath the kitchen sink. Make sure the disposer knockout plug was taken out between the two.
4 Run the garbage disposer in the kitchen sink to remove potential blockages.
5 Remove objects that may be blocking the drain on the dishwasher. Clean out the drain hose at the rear of the dishwasher.
Hello. Manufactured by Whirlpool, Kenmore dishwashers have an electronic control panel that must be unlocked in order to set or make changes to your dishwashing cycle. If an error light is blinking on your dishwasher's control panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinking lights on your dishwasher control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needs to be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the control panel, contact Sears to service your Kenmore dishwasher or consider troubleshooting the appliance yourself. 1Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button on your Kenmore dishwasher for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher control panel. 2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after the other, in fairly quick succession. 3 Wait for the dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test. 4 Press the "Cancel/Drain" button at the end of the diagnostic test cycle. This should reset the control panel on your Kenmore dishwasher.
if you have a heated dry option and normal wash option push those buttons back and forth three times all the lights will come on reseting the board..
push cans. and your done
if this happens again that means you have a bad heater or bad board
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. "
press back and forth between hi-tempwash and sani rinse several times to get all lights to come on if not then press sani rinse and heated dry back and forth several times. one of though combos will start the test mode. the test mode will stop the light from blinking and you can use the dishwasher again
I too had Flashing Clean light and only responded to Cancel light by trying to drain. Whirlpool Model DU1145. I too got problem to clear by pushing High temp,Heated dry, High temp and Heated dry. All lights on display lit up then it went through sequences of all cycles.
