Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

Hello, I have a whirlpool gold GU1200, GU2300 or GU640. From what I have found on line, it sounds like I need the reset code. The cancel and soak and scour buttons are flashing and the dishwasher won't start. Any help would be apprecated. Thanks!

I found many forum threads on your subject. Most of them suggest running the diagnostics on the heater to check if it's heating or to pull out the heater element and check its resistance.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool gold

Hi


If the 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.

Gold model GU1200. Is there a filter module and, if so, how do I get access to clean it?


The location is shown as #17 on page 5 of your owner's manual. You may need a magnifying glass to see where the "line" is pointing to, but it does show it in the bottom of the machine. See link below:

My whirlpool gold cooktop has the control lock button lit up- i can't turn on any buners?


Hello there and welcome to fixya
This is a fairly common issue with these
These cooktops have a internal memory built into them and if they get locked they need to be reset
SO what you will need to do is to unplug the power to the cooktop and leave it sit for 1 hr and do not touch ok then after the hour is up tunr on the power to the cooktop you may hear a audiable beep sound or a click sound this is normal now press the cancel button and you should be all right from here but if not please post me back a comment and tell me what is going on and i will give you further troubleshooting steps ok ?
Best regards Mike

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.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Sounds like glass fragments against the pump impeller. This may jam the impeller and reduce water pump volume giving poor wash performance and possible inability to evacuate the wash tub. It will not go away and may cause the impeller to fail. Remove screens and get the glass out. Do not poke around with your fingers unless you like cuts.
