Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
Thanks for using FixYa. The clean light flashes, pauses and then repeats due to the dishwasher not sensing water temperature increase, it stops working, locks the functions and clean light flashes. It does this as a safety measure in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water. To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

All the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle finish (1-2 minutes). You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal. If the issue returns, 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.
