Pots and pans light keeps blinking and not working on Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher - what do I do?


Pots and pans requires HOT water. If your heater is not working it will not run the cycle. Possibly the heating element is bad or has become disconnected. Only has two wires coming in from the bottom of the dishwasher (underneath behind the kick panel). Do not touch them unless you know power to the DW is off. Heating element is nothing but a high resistance wire in a tube so you can check it with an ohm meter. Continuity means it is good. AS LONG AS that continuity is not with the outside tube.

Not hard to replace it but up to you to decide if it is more trouble than you want to do.

Water won't heat


It could be a malfunction heating element, thermostat or both.
In most cases it's the heating element.
Check with a multi-meter for 115/220V on the heater tags.
In case you get this voltage there, you should replace the heating element.
In case you can't read the 115/220V on the heater tags, check thermostat's for continuity (you should read a low resistance). In case you can't get any measurement. You should replace the thermostat.
Good luck

Flasjing green lights on an indest dishawasher which is not working


Hi, the flashing green light indicates a fault in the heating circuit of the appliance.

You would require to have, and be able to use, a multimeter to fully test the components. Check the circuit of the heating element (26 ohms).
Check for an open circuit heater cut-out.
Check pressure switch open circuit (connections 11-14).
Check wiring and connections between module card, pressure switch and heater.

If all above is OK, replace module card.
The heater and the module card are the most common causes of the fault. The heater is on the underside of the appliance and is attached to the top spray arm feed tube. The module card is in the facia of the appliance.

Bosch Eexcell Dishwasher not heating. Accessed heating element by removing right hand side panel, there appears to be continuity between left and right hand terminals - where is the thermostat please and...


Hi, Welcome to FixYa. The hi-limit thermostat and NTC (all in one) are actually directly on top of the heater body, aka instantanious water heater. You'll also see a micro-switch which turns the element on once water begins to circulate, that is the flo-switch. Having said that, the issue is likely the heater relay on the main control board, specifically a burnt solder joint for the heater relay. If you visually inspect the control you'll likely see it right away. Let me know how you make out or if you need any help, good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Model 655-17014401 clean light (green) flashes but dishwasher won't start


This means you have an open heat circuit. It could be either a bad heating element, a bad hi limit thermostat, or a bad control board. The heater and hi limit therm can be tested for continuity with an ohm meter. Most of these units the heater will come with the control board in a kit. Hope this helps.

Clean light blinks 7 times after going through complete cycle up to heated dry. ive reset it using the heated dry/normal wash buttons. so it will run until it has to dry then i get the error. how do i fix?


this error says that there is a fault in the heater circuit. the heater circiut goes thru the doorlock assembly, thermostat(if equipped) then heater and back to the board.

do you see or feel and rough spots on the surface of the heater? if so it is probably burned out. if thats not it i would check continuity on the door switches, then the thermostat and the heater.

Is heater element bad


Does sound like the element is bad, confirm with a multimeter, should see 120v across the element terminals, if voltage is present check for continuity of the heating element with the power off, no continuity equals bad element.

FDW60 not heating / Delicate light flashing.........


I f you have warranty on this please call them, you have a defective D/W.Unless there is no charge for repairs ,don't spend a dollar on what is going to be a on going problem ahead.To explain how to fix this is what the manufacturer should have done in the factory and not made 1 dollar off of this defective D/W until it proved this to be ready .What has happened to Quality Control ? Does it no longer matter ? Very sorry ,you should seek a refund ASAP.

Heating element


  • Remove the screws on the back of the unit and take off the back two panels.
  • Facing the back, there is a thermostat toward the back-middle-right... it has a brass nut that holds it in place and two wires attached to it. (my wires were pink). Check this first: check the wiring here, and if you have a multimeter, check the continuity between the two terminals. It should be closed (conducting) when cold.
  • You should see the wires for the heating coil on the left side. If you have a multimeter, check the resistance across the left and right  terminals (the middle terminal with green wires is ground). If there is no continuity, the heater is dead. 
  • Finally, the only other cause would be the relay (hidden off in the right-rear corner of the unit) or the control panel.
