    Hi .. The model number of this Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher is GU3200XTPS0. The fault is mentioned in the Trouble Shooting Manual under "Dishwasher is not Operating Proberly ... "Clean Light is Flashing" on Page 21 of the Manual



    it is the Clean Light which is flashing. There seems to be no water in the machine and you can not start it. Previously there was an odour of something burning eminating from the machine however there is no odour now. We are not sure what part of the cycle the machine was in when it failed. I hope this helps a little..

Please clarify which LED is flashing -
the start/ resume or the clean key. Is the LED always flashing or only when you press the Start/ Resume key.

Please give page no. of manual that mentions problem with Heating circuit.

One of the reasons for flashing LED at start can be the float switch is faulty or the thermal fuse has tripped. Will try to find actual problem if you provide more information I have asked above.

    Please post a comment to confirm if someone has fixed this for you or not. I was not able to respond previously as the problem was locked out.

    The Problem was not repaired. Upon opening the control Panel it was discovered that the computer control assembly had been seriously damaged.. Relays were burnt , tracks on the circuit board burnt etc. Upon investigation it could not be substantiated that this was the actual failure or a result of another more serious failure perhaps pump motor or heater. With the cost of parts escallating it was decided to purchase a new dishwasher rather than rislk further money on this washer.. We own 3 Whirlpool gold appliances which are 6 yrs old. The Ceramic top stove has been replaced and the second one is seriously compromised. Door seal deteriorating and glass window seal broken, The refridgerator which is a 22 cuft side by side , the icemaker failed after 4 yrs. We wouldn't recommend purchasing any whirlpool appliances.

Hello there Rick

If you have the red blinking light then you have the RED light of death AKA the RLOD.

The light is a warning sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the quick explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the PS3, the GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the solder heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time this will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose connection with the motherboard and you get the RLOD.

WHERE TO GO FROM HERE

Option 1 - Call Sony

In warranty the Price is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150, the whole process is 4-6 weeks

You can call Sony and they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back to you

Option 2 - Fix it your Self

You can use a PS3 fix manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you probably already own.

Hello there satnamanu

If you have the brief flashing yellow light, then its followed by a red blinking light then you have the yellow light of death AKA the YLOD.

Red light flashing and console won't start or eject disc


Hi andrew,

Are you seeing any flashing red/yellow lights?

If so this is the red light error and you will find that is why the system will not turn on.

Why Does It Happen?

The GPU and the CPU are the 2 main chips in the system and they deal with all of the number crunching however they can get very hot and if they lose connection the system will either freeze up or turn off and give you the red flashing light.

How To Fix?

The key is stopping the heat build up and you can either send it in and they will fix it for you.

Bear in mind that for the PS3 red flashing light error you will be waiting for about 4 weeks and it will also cost you $150 for the repair bill!

Other Ways To Fix?

You can also use a good PS3 Repair Guide to fix it and this will show you how to stop the heat build up with a few household items.

Just make sure that you get a good guide there are some good ones out there!

Hope this helps and any questions let me know?

I was in the middle of playing a game, the ps3 shut off. I went to hit the power button to turn it back on, it wouldn't come on. I turned the machine completely off, waited a while, turned it back on,...


Hi, its not good news im afraid the reason it shuts down and gives you a ref light is due to damage being done to the circuit board inside the ps3.
it could be that it has over heated which is often the case this could be down to dust build up or if the heat sink paste on the gpu and cpu chip has gone brittle or if you have been using the ps3 on carpet or in top of anything else that gives off heat such as dvd or sky box, these cause it to over heat really quick.

right now you have a couple of options if you have any warranty left take it back and get a refund if your warranty has run out then you could try getting it repaired but their is no guarantee the repair will work or how long it will work after the reapir.

as you have got the red light this does mean the console has over heated and their is a fault with the board so its not going to work again the way it is.

now i repair these for 25 quid plus parts so you need to look around if you want it repaired and see what the best price you can get.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Ps3 starts up, fan is very loud, red light flashes and shuts off


Your most likely cause is the CPU or GPU is damaged due to over heating. This is usually not repairable. Red flashing lights are usually a bad hard ware warning. Try looking up flashing or fault codes for PS3 light patterns and check if any match up to the flashes you get. Another thing to indicate hardware failure is if it boots up at all. I'd like to give you better news but this is more then likely more an autopsy report then anything helpful.

Over heat problem caused internal hardware failure. Sony claims it can't be fixed and your PS3 is one in a million. Only temp fix is available. Heat caused the problem and heat will fix the problem. You need to heat the motherboard with heat gun and bring to using 500 degrees, after evenly heating board, go to 650 degrees and focus on the cpu and gpu. let cool and put back together. similiar to the xbox red ring of death.

Reds light's


you can't just remove the 2 x clamps, you need something to hold the heatsink down. Get yourself some m5 screws and washers and screw it down to hold the headsink, cpu and the board together.
