Question about Whirlpool 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher w/ SheerClean Dishwasher
I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher DU1145XTPBA i had the clean light blinking problem and reset the console. Now when I run it, it fills with water but does not move the water around to clean the dishes. Is this a repair we could attempt ourselves?
From what you have mentioned I understand the dishwasher moves through the whole wash and drain cycle but you do not hear the water moving inside the dishwasher and even though it completes the program but leaves dishes dirty.
Please check if the dish washer is warm in the end, I am assuming your dishwasher has an internal water heater. Also observe if the wash cycle is running longer than it used to before. This is the time it takes between filling water and when drain pump starts running.
I am assuming you have already done the normal checks of cleaning the bottom of the diswasher and checking the washer arms holes are clear.
If the dishwasher is totally silent during the wash cycle then the wash motor is not starting and a possible reason is that its start capacitor is not functional. (part 26). If you are not familiar with electrical stuff then you will have to get a technician to fix it.

Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems you could have a problem with the heating circuit (i.e. 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 accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

If clean light is blinking then it may be an
issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to
the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error.
If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing
this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air
Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub,
energy saver dry or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated Dry .
Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button
and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an
issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or
due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open
circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater
using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use
multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure
is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post
back if you need more information.
