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.

I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner Two dishwasher. The rinse only light & quick wash light constantly blink and I can't run it, none of the buttons will work. Is there a way I can reset my dishwasher?


This generally means the control panel is no longer working and must be replaced. That's the entire plastic assembly at the top of the door, in which the buttons reside. Disconnect power first, remove screws inside the door which hold the panel in place. Unplug power connectors, remove circuit board control board. Find dishwasher model number and search parts for that model. The part is pricey, more than $100 last time I replaced mine. Install control board into new panel, make power connection. Reassemble door. Good to go.

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.

Start/Resume light blinks slowlyIf the dishwasher door is opened or power is interrupted during the cycle, the dishwasher won't start again until the door is detected as closed and the Start/Resume button is pressed.Check the door latch and switch assembly. A failure in the Start/Resume button also can cause this problem.
