Whirlpoor Dishwasher keeps restarting

Whirlpool dishwasher goes through the normal cycle then after about 30 minutes restarts all over again. It always took a long time to wash as we use "Sani" cycle. But I began to notice that the "add a dish " light would go on after it had passed that option before. Then I realized after it went through all the cycles including drying, it was starting over.

I try to push the "cancel/drain" but it sometimes does that and starts all over after a little "rest". Then I pre-washed the dishes and used the "China" cycle and all went OK.

Today it's back to recycling on the "Normal" mode and it won't cancel drain. So I'm waiting for the dishes to dry with the shelves pulled out. Then I'll try again. But when I push "cancel/drain" the "controls locked" briefly comes on.

My guess is that the foil that the buttons are mounted to is defective.  The control module "reads" the buttons that are pushed by the fact that the resistance between two pins on the circuitboard becomes zero ie. your pushing the button shorts out two pins.  the foil could have moistire damage or the resiistance of the tracks could be too high.  Solution for both would be to replace the control panel button foil.

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.

SOURCE: Clean light keeps blinking and I can't start a new cycle

That is a comon problem with that model. It is not sensing a temperature change in the water.

Push i believe it is heated dry and sani rinse going back and fourth between the two to clear the code and see if you can get it to complete a cycle. If it doesnt call sears and schedule service there is a service flash repair that should not cost you anything to repair the unit.

I suspect for either of these units that the timer control boards are bad.

SOURCE: My Whirlpool quiet wash plus 940 series is stuck on "lock out"

Have the same problem with my Sears ( made by Whirlpool ) 1603. Visited the store and the man said it must have had a power surge. Even the slightest will FRY the electrical in the Power Pad unit. Cost to repair, maybe $ 120 for new unit , installation costs, plus $65 for the man to get in the truck. Is it worth it ? They had the same, but newer Dwasher on sale for $390 , free delivery , pay for installation, take out old $20. What to do....

Door latch.
Open and close the door to make sure the door latch is securely fastened

Hi-Temp Wash, Hi-Temp Rinse, or Sanitize options.
Some models have options that may require a water heating delay, such as Hi-Temp Wash, Hi-Temp Rinse, or Sanitize. Additional time may be required to heat the water to the proper temperature. The dishwasher will continue to circulate water during this heating delay but the timer will not advance until the proper temperature is reached

I get an Er code 5 on our Dishwasher and it keep restarting in the rinse mode


Thank you for your post, friend!

I see you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dishwasher and you are receiving error code "5". However, it appears "5" is an invalid error code. May I have you model number please? Typically you can locate your serial tag on the inside wall on the left hand side. With this information I can better assist you with pinpointing the issue.

In the meantime, let's attempt resetting your dishwasher. You can do this by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position for roughly ten minutes. This usually clears false error codes. -Matt

Hi
Door latch.
Open and close the door to make sure the door latch is securely fastened.
Check the dishwasher wiring for a possible loose connection where it connects to the house wiring.
Fuses or circuit breakers.
Check your house fuses or circuit breakers to make sure you have power to the dishwasher.

Whirlpool dishwasher reset code


Yup, found it on another site..I had the same issue today.

Reset code: Push 1. Heat Dry 2. Normal 3. Heat Dry 4. Normal

wait about 2 minutes as the controller resets itself. You should see all the leds flash on and then wash and rinse leds stay on for about 30 seconds. A minute or so later ..presto, my machine worked again.

My machine is not the GU3200XTP, but in the same Whirlpool tall tub series (same manual) so leds may not have the same name.

Hello bckp,
Welcome to Fixya


If your dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle

Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing? Opening the door or
interrupting the power stopped the cycle. Close the door and
press START/RESUME.
Does the Start/Resume indicator flash 3 times when you
press START/RESUME? The dishwasher is waiting for you to
open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door,
then press START/RESUME.
Is the door closed tightly and latched?
(NOTE: On models with a dual-digit display, the control
displays “- -” during a cycle if it believes the door is not
latched.)
Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the “Cycle Selection
Charts.”
Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
It is normal for certain cycles to repeatedly pause for several
seconds during the main wash.

If the dishwasher will not fill

Check the overfill protection float that is able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.

Let me know if any of these procedures helped you?

Whirlpool 24 in. DU1055XTP Built-in Dishwasher


I don't know if your dishwasher is the same as mine, but this solution may be what you need. For electronic panel dishwashers made by whirlpool (mine is a whirlpool but with a kenmore name on it), some of them can be reset by pushing in sequence the Heated-Dry button followed by the Normal-Wash button, several times in a row. that is... Push Heated-Dry, then Normal-Wash, Then Heated-Dry, then Normal-Wash... Repeat until all lights light up. When all lights light up you can stop. The washer will then take 5-10 minutes to go through a diagnostics cycle, which is about 18-25 steps or so. You can bypass one step at a time by pushing the STart button. This may not apply to your washer, but is pure gold if it does. Good Luck!

Quick Wash cycle restarting


Aestaie, On the quick wash cycle the machine goes through a heated rinse at 160 degrees. I think what's happening here is that the board checks the thermistor and is finding that the water is not hot enough and say's, hey, I need more time to heat this water and resets itself. The element in the dishwasher will only heat the water 1 degree every 3 to 5 minutes. So after the initial wash, there is a 2 minute drain, it fills again and there is the heated rinse. If the water is 120 and the final rinse needs to be 160, we have some heating to do here. Therefore the reset. Sounds like the dishwasher is working OK, Catriver..post back
