Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

The normal light on my Whirlpool DU1101XTPQ7 is blinking. Service company installed a new circuit board but this did not solve the problem. Now they are saying it's the control panel (after the third visit to my home to fix this).

A blinking indicator light means the thouch key that geos with that light is stuck. So yes you need a control panel since the touch pad assembly is installed on it at the factory. I would have them put your old control board in with the new touch pad. It should work but sometimes they both go out.

Whirlpool dishwasher model# gu2200xtss3 normal light flasing all the time turning power off does not help in a few minutes back on flashing


The light blinking is an error code--usually it will blink a certain number of times, pause, then blink another sequence(ex. 4 times, then 3 times)in a binary error code. There is a chart in the service manual to decipher the code(s) and locate the issue. It could be anything from a heater circuit failure to the drain pump being jammed. Try to see how many times the light blinks, and which ones blink--there could be, on the first part of the sequence, normal light, then, 2 or 3 lights blink-- I need to know which ones are lit. Thanks! You can try to look up the light combinations on the net with a search for your model number and error codes.

Whirlpool adp 6515ix dishwasher start button is flashing in 4 time cycles-what does this tell me please. None of the manuals indicate what the flashing could be signalling.

Console light blinks rapidlyThe control detects a stuck button on the control panel.A failed control panel or a malfunctioning electronic control board can cause this code. Check the buttons on the control panel using a volt/ohm meter. In most cases, the control panel must be replaced. If that doesn't solve the problem, the electronic control board might be at fault.

Dropped my 8900 blackberry curve in water. i let it dry and reinstalled the battery. Now all i get is a flashing red light.


Hello Friend, Red light is the sign of danger as all we know in case of your phone there is a short circuit into the mobile circuit board so this red light is blinking you have to go to the any expert mobile repairer or company service center for further query and dont install your battery as because of its more damage to IC of phone may occur n there may be the permanent die of your mobile.
Hope this will solve your problem...

My sony ke-mx42a1 shuts down and the stanby


Normally, this happens when the TV detects a bad circuit board and goes into " Protection Mode ". The blinking red light should be a error trouble code. Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.

3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you red light blinking codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.


I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

TV clicked and went blank...no picture, no sound. Power light blinks ten times in one second intervals and then pauses for about five seconds.


Most problems with TV not turning ON is a power supply related problem. The relay click are a normal process that powers up the circuit boards. Right now the TV is most likely in " Protection Mode ". The TV detected a bad circuit board and it will prevent the TV from fully turning ON. This keeps the other circuit board from being damaged. The power light blinking is a code.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.

Washer won't start.


I solved this by buying a new washer. In talking to customer service, they believed over the phone that the control board had gone out.

Code F50 and absolutely no spin cycles at all. Anyone have a solution?. Don't call the service centers, there's no help there. Is it cheap circuit boards?


I didn't solve the problem, so I have to wait for the circuit board to come in and the tech to install it. Really hope this solves the issue.
