There is no start button,

No on button! Look for a slideswitch, or rocker switch, or a dial switch and turn it clockwise to desired setting. If none of these is present, refer to users manual, or call customer service (800) # that is usually on the door. Good luck, best regards.

It could be a motor with bad bearings. But to check you need to remove washer and take outside or in garage. Put machine on it's "back" and take pump apart and look for obstruction. If you are mechanically inclined this is EZ!

To keep the gaskets and other rubber componats from drying out run it once a week, It's also a good idea to run your garbage disposal while the dishwasher is running about once a week.

Clean light blinks. It blinks


This machine was made by Whirlpool and the flashing clean light is a common error code for them.
If the clean light is the one flashing then your dishawasher could have a heater circuit problem (depending on the age) or this could simply just be water colder than it is used to getting.
Repeatedly press the Heated Dry and Hi-Temp Wash(scrub) which ever yours has untill all the LED lights come on, press cancel twice and try the dishwasher again making sure to run the water at the kitchen sink till it is hot before starting the dishwasher, if this trips and locks you have a problem with the heating element, or temp sensor.
Press the heated dry button followed by the normal cycle button, and then repeat once. You should see all of the lights come on for a second or two, and then the dishwasher will work again.
If you haven't already, take a look under the kick plate in front to see if there is a schematic tucked in there somewhere. Whirlpool has put their diagnostics for specific models on these.
I don't have the specific repair manual for you model.
So, if the above combination does not work here are two more that have worked for me.
HiTemp Wash + Air Dry + HiTemp Wash + Air Dry in less than 5 sec
Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry + Hi Temp Scrub/Scour + Air Dry in less than 5 sec

Let me know, if you need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

It is stuck between cycles. How do i reset?

Have you tried turning the mains power off and on after a short delay?
If this does not work then press the following buttons in quick succession (about 5 sec) and when all lights light up press Cancel.

Dishes in top rack don't clean


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.

Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.

For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water is draining and is not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in dishwasher then check for clogged drain hoses and drain pump.

Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.

Whirlpool Dishwasher No Power: GU1200XT dishwasher


The thermal fuse protects the entire dishwasher circuit from overload. Not just the heater or motor, but everything. From the diagram in the tech sheet, you can see that this fuse is between the incoming line voltage and the door switch. This means it is controlling all power to the dishwasher. Any shorted component can open the fuse

You will get two new wires with the fuse kit.
You need to make sure you use the new wires in the kit with the new fuse.The old wires have a bad connection that create heat and blow the old fuse


And in this link you can download Step by step instructions on how to install the 8193761 Thermal Cutoff in a whirlpool made dishwasher
