Question about Whirlpool 24 in. GU2548XTP Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Getting very close

I think you have helped me isloate the problem. When I press Accusense, the display shows "- - " which as you told me means it is not latched. I was able to push in several spots and get the latch to accept and the washer worked once, but can not get it to start again. The washer is latching, but not allowing it to start. I opened the panel and saw the latch mechanism. It works and pushes down two sensors. How do i detemrine which one is faulty or could it be something else?

    I took a multimeter to the switches and they both seem to work. The sensor on the left measures 5 volts when depressed and the sensor on the right measures 120 volts and 0 volts when depressed. Any other things that would make the washer intermittment?

Model ESL 499. Why doesn't it start?

You have activated the delayed start function. Please read following instruction from user manual.

8. Delayed Start button

Allows the start of the programme to be delayed by a minimum of 1 hour, up to 9 hours. How to set the delayed start When the button is pressed, the number appears in the display (4). Press the button again to select the number of hours by which you wish to delay the programme start, up to a maximum of 9. E.g.: if you have selected number , the wash programme will start in 2 hours' time. To cancel the delayed start set, press the button until the number appears. Close the dishwasher door to start the countdown: a long audible signal (about one second) informs you that the function is active. If you open the door again you will see, in the display (4), how long there is to go (in hours) before the programme starts. A flashing dot in the digital display means that the delayed start function has been activated. Opening the door has no effect on a countdown which has already been started. If, during the countdown, you wish to see the programme number selected in the display, press the Programme Selector button (5). If, after having started the countdown by closing the dishwasher door, you wish to cancel the delayed start, press button (9) (Cancel) for about 2 seconds until the short «instruction accepted «signal is heard».

Dishwasher will not start

  • Door latch.
    Make sure door is closed and properly latched.
  • Delay start option.
    If delay start option is available, has it been set and is unit still in time delay before starting.
  • Cycle setting.
    Check to see if cycle is set correctly (refer to Operating Instructions in the "Use & Care Manual").

    If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated Dry . Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

    First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue returns after its cleaned then try to reset the dishwasher control by pressing the HEATED DRY button and hold it for 15 seconds, if its still not resolved then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    Ours does the exact same thing. We pull it out and tip it which drains some water on the floor and then it works.

Does anyone know how this can be fixed more permanently. thanks.

    Accu sense Light keeps flashing and dish washer wont do anything. help

    Under the dishwasher there is a 'kickPlate " turn the power off to the unit and there are 2 screws holding the kickplate on behind it there is a Book ( Tech Sheet ) that will tell you what the accusense lighting means. I thinks it mean you have a bad heater circuit tho which is either a bad heating element or control board. It could possible be the sump motor assy too.
    Any qusetions feel free to ask hope this helped

    Welcome to fixya.

    You said, Your Bosch dish washer won't work. A number 1 is displayed on the electronic panel.

    If it is displaying"01" then that means the extra dry setting is being applied!
    Did you try to use the extra Dry setting?
    Did the dishwasher work before this or is it brand new?
    What is the model number and year?
    Let me know ! I'm waiting for your response

    Below is and example of the usage of 01 or 00 in a Bosch Dishwasher!

    Extra Dry Heat
    With this option you can raise the temperature of the rinse water and increase the drying
    time which will result in improved drying.
    To activate :
    Press and hold the left cancel drain button ,
    Then press and hold the on/off button when the LED display shows a, "00" or a "01"
    To enable the additional drying heat,press the left cancel drain button until the LED display shows a "01"
    To disable the additional drying heat,press the left cancel drain button until the LED display shows a "00"
    press the on/off button to save the settings.
