My whirlpool GU980SCGB2 dishwasher continues to repeat the normal cycle. If I cancel the cycle, It will run another cycle all the way through. Then the normal cycle will automatically start. Please advise. Thanks, Eric

I found many forum threads on your subject. Most of them suggest running the diagnostics on the heater to check if it's heating or to pull out the heater element and check its resistance.

My delay light has come on and I cant get the dishwasher to start. The delay light goes out after the time has expired but if you try to move it to the start position the light comes on again


The Control is programmed to stop running and not allow any further cycles if it detects a water heating problem (no temperature increase detected in heated Main Wash on 3 consecutive cycles). The Control will flash the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and will disable the Start/Resume key until cleared.

To clear and reset the control press in this order: Heated Dry ? Normal ? Heated Dry ? Normal and then let the unit run for 1-2 minutes and then press Cancel and let the dishwasher complete the cancel cycle. The dishwasher should operate normally again unless it does not detect a temperature rise in the main wash cycle.

It could be caused by a Heater circuit problem if it continues to stop and flash the Clean light.

It could have one of the following failures:
Open in heater.
Open connection or component in heater circuit.
Faulty heater drive circuit on control.
It can also be caused by the wash pump not pumping water past the heater efficiently.

Model #DU1015XTXS2


With the dishwasher door closed and the unit in standby mode or with no cycle selected and all lights off, press - heated-dry, normal, heated-dry, normal buttons in that sequence. Then press cancel..... wait until 2 minute cycle is done. Open and close the door and make sure it is closed. Then run another cycle.

My quiet partner 111 whirlpool dishwasher is flashing clean


Hello.
Manufactured by Whirlpool, Kenmore dishwashers have an electronic control panel that must be unlocked in order to set or make changes to your dishwashing cycle. If an error light is blinking on your dishwasher's control panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinking lights on your dishwasher control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needs to be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the control panel, contact Sears to service your Kenmore dishwasher or consider troubleshooting the appliance yourself.
1Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button on your Kenmore dishwasher for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher control panel.
2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after the other, in fairly quick succession.
3 Wait for the dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test.
4 Press the "Cancel/Drain" button at the end of the diagnostic test cycle. This should reset the control panel on your Kenmore dishwasher.

Thanks.

DISHWASHER was locked now unlocked but won't run. Goes to drain/Cancel when you push the Normal Cycles


Wondering how you unlocked the dishwasher. Normally you would have pressed Heat Dry for about 4 secs.

I don't this action would have caused the problem. For dishwasher to run you need the door lock switch to operate. If door is not closed it will go to Cancel.

Check item 12 in this diagram.

The normal light blinks, i hit cancel and the light wash light blinks as well. it will go through the sensoring process, then a 2 miniute cycle. then everyhting repeats itself


Try hitting these buttons in this sequence
<High Temp Wash><Heated Dry><High TempWash><Heated dry>   this should reset the board and run a short diagnostic cycle.After that if the problem comes back you have another issue.

Whirlpool Dishwasher won't drain during normal cycle


As you say a clogged line or valve does not make sense.

Try running it without the heated drying and see if it empties or if the cancel button will work then.

The dishes should air dry quickly if you empty it and open the door.

It could be a defective thermostat allowing it to get too hot during the heat cycle
