Question about Whirlpool 24 in. GU3200XTP Built-in Dishwasher
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I understand how vague those manuals can be, very frustrating.
In regards to the fault, while the control can be an issue and ultimately require replacement...that is a worst case scenario and certainly not the "starting line".
Typically this fault is prompted due to poor water circulation, which in turn allows the heater to get too hot, ( water circulationg keeps it from overheating under normal conditions ).
The place to start is to pull the pump filter, spray arm and check for food deposit, broken glass, undesolved detergent and general water deposit built up in the sump well.
The key is to get in there and clean it all out, I`ve attached a link at the bottom that will show you how to go about it. It is not really referring to the heating issue, or maybe even your model, ( Most Whirlpool, Inglis, Kenmore, Kitchen-Aid, Jenn-Air ) but it is the same procedure.
It is also possible the heating element is faulty, but I would focus on this solution first and go from there.
When you`re finished, shut you power of to the dishwasher for several minutes and that should clear the error code. Run it through a test cycle and see how it goes.
Let me know how you make out and what you find.

The blinking clean light is an interruption in the dishwasher program that usually indicates a component problem or program malfunction. If a component is defective, it's commonlly attributed to the heating cycle or a thermostat failure. To rule out component failure, or program error, the following link explains how you may be able to clear (or reset) the blinking clean light problem and possibly avoid a service call:
Keep in mind all dishwashers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting. Just remove the screws that hold the panel in place and remove.
NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.
In many cases, I found this to be a momentary glitch in operation. If the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of WHICH circuit is causing your problem. As all dishwashers differ in operation and features, refer to your tech sheet for the recommended troubleshooting steps.
NOTE: Some dishwashers use the Sani-Rinse/Air Dry combination, some use the Sani-Rinse/Heated Dry combination. Some use a sequence of three, others use a sequence of 5 pushes of the buttons. If the tech sheet is not located behind the lower toe panel, it should be affixed somewhere under the dishwasher. I have also found them located inside the inner door panel. Please post back and let me know if you still need assistance.
