Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU1055XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Whirlpool dishwasher won't work at all

Mod. No. DU1055XTPSO. No lights flash. There is power to the door switch. Tried reset sequence: Hi temp./Normal/Hi temp/Normal. Didn't help. The push button door panel was replaced about 3 or 4 months ago. What do you suggest ?

    I would very much appreciate it if you would read this entire post before telling me to check to see if I have a blown circuit breaker!!!

    One more time. I have a Whirlpool dishwasher Model No. DU1055XTPS0. The machine appears to be dead - no lights are visible on the door panel. I have checked to see if there is power to the unit. There is power to the unit. I tested the door latch switch to see if it was working properly. It is working properly. By that I mean power goes into the switch and, when the door is closed, power goes out of the switch. So, apparently, the problem is either in the electronic control panel or the door panel. The door panel was replaced about 3 months ago so I'm guessing that probably is not the problem.

    Since this is a newer model, there are only push button controls. There are no knobs to turn or reset. The timer is, I presume, integrated into the electronic control panel.

All of the websites I have checked and the procedures I did point to doing a reset of the control panel, based according to your brand and model. Mine is a whirlpool (push the buttons Normal wash, heated dry, nor. wash, then heated dry again). That did not work for me either. Then, your only other solution is to replace the control panel (mine is $160, and given the cost of dishwashers today, it's cheaper to keep her.) A technician would certainly be a way to go about getting things fixed IF you aren't mechanically or technology inclined. That's also probably the cost to have someone come out and press a button, do a little tekky thing and voila! you still need to replace the control panel. Nope.

First of all you should remove also base cover and harness and hose assembly and check wiring connections, then there should be also a fuse, usually on control pcb, that should be checked.
Here is service manual for a similar model, check troubleshooting steps.

Hi,

If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

The "clean" light is flashing


Hi


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. 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.

Mod #gu2500xtpb1 clean light flashes 7 times


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats--

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence--

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

All the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes). You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Whirlpool Dishwasher power surge results in flashing clean button


I'm not sure what the sequence would be on your particular model as Whirlpool dishwashers can differ in operaiton. However, if you remove the lower kick panel under the dishwasher door, there should be a tech sheet either directly behind the panel, or tucked inside the door. The tech sheet will list all troubleshooting tips and any fault codes that the owner/operator's manual does not list. This is the SAME sheet the repairman will reference when they come to your home on a service call. Please let me know if you still require assistance. I hope this helps you.

Clean Light Flashes


I found this post elsewhere. It seems to have worked for me: Our KitchenAid KUDP series dishwasher went into a mode where it would not start and would only respond to the cancel/drain button. The clean light would flash 7 times in a row, stop, and then repeat. I read that the 7 flashes indicates an error code and that the dishwasher has detected a problem in the heater element circuit. I tried to reset the error mode by turning off power for 15 minutes, however, that did not work.
We called for a repair. The service person found that the dishwasher was completely fine except that it had gone into an error mode. The technician reset the error mode and charge us $115.00.

The reset sequence used was reported to be the following:
1) Crack the door open.
2) Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry
3) Close and latch the door
4) Press the cancel button (the circle with the triangle in it)

We were told the dishwasher expects to see the dish water temperature rise in a certain way. If the water does not heat in this way, the dishwasher becomes confused and thinks the heater element has failed. In deed, this happened just following and extended power failure and our hot water tank was cool. I am curious if this code will work for anybody else with the same problem and save a service call and 115 bucks. Overall, this seems to be a serious logic flaw in the design.
