Question about Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher

Open Question

I have a Whirlpool Gu180 ESJQ with a blinking green start light. If I clear this light (hold the start button for 5 second to place it in the end of cycle) then I can get it to start another wash cycle. However, the next wash cycle ends with a blinking start button again and the dishes aren't dry. I had an appliance service man come to check it out and he could not detect any problem! Now I have a leak!

These dishwashers normally have a "Control Lock" mode.  It's in the manual.  It is provided for child safety.  It's often controlled by holding the "No Heat Dry" button for 4 seconds or more -- same procedure turns it on or off.

Hi,
   The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers. The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher. This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence. Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.

SOURCE: Top shelf dishes aren't getting

Hello,

The most likely reason the dishes in the uppper rack of your dishawasher are not getting clean is because the filter on the pump is built up withe debris and the water is havinga tough time circulating through the pump. This tip i wrote will show ya how to clean that filter.

I am locked out of cycle with clean light blinking green and cannot find my manual, dishwasher is about 1 year old. Is there a sequence to break this cycle? I turned off power for 60 seconds to no avail.


Hi
I have not seen this model in Australia, but normally if you hold down "Start/Stop" button for 3 to 5 seconds, that should clear the cycle.
Otherwise if you have a Clear button press that for 3-5 seconds.

Our Whirlpool Gold GU180 start light blinks continuosly. It will not start going through the cycles even when we press on the start button for 5 seconds or more.


Hi,
   The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers. The problem is usually attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval (this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start the dishwasher. This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in the sequence. Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is affected and how to troubleshoot.

My whirlpool gold dishwasher GU180 wont start


I had the same problem with the exact same model - put your washer on the lowest wash setting - press and hold the start button for about 3 seconds. THe washer will run for about 5 seconds and then turn off (do not have the heated dry setting on when you do this).

Turn it off (turn the dial), and then try to re-wash.
