Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher
Dishwasher began not working with soak and scour light blinking. Dishwasher was primarily used in the quickwash cycle. Dealer replaced electronic control board twice as well as checked fuse and checked continuity of the heating coil. The door latches were also checked. Dishwasher still doesn't work. When you close the door, the soak and scour light comes on and after 15 seconds starts to blink. If you open and reclose the door, the soak and scour light blinks once and then after 15 seconds starts blinking. When dishwasher stopped working there was a -- line in the time display window at the center of the control panel. Each time after service was done we were able to wash one load of dishes then during the second use, the soak and scour light comes on and the dishwasher stops it's cycle, and stops working. We have tried shutting off power to the dishwasher at the circut breaker box twice to see if the control panel would reset but no success. Have tried using the rapid advance service feature and diagnostics cycle but have not been succesful.

Will these units (silo and jtrip) start back on their own? if so, it is likely they are heating the water.
otherwise it sounds like a logic board, unless there is a defective door switch or sensor issue.
electronics seem to be a recurring problem with whirlpool.
i would ask whirlpool (electorlux) to either buy it back or fix it.

I have a whirlpool model GU2548XTPS1 with a blinking soak and scour light. I have recycled the power to the unit, pressed the button several times, held the button in for a few seconds. I have done everything that the whirlpool site has suggested.
Whirlpool Quiet Partner III Model #GU2500XTP - Exact same problem!! Technician said it was the control board, replaced that, lights still blinked. Took the control board out, said it was the keypad, but then it miraculously started working - he refused to replace it since it was a warranty call (now longer in warranty). It's worked for about 2 months and now we are back to a blinking soak and scour light and no response from any of the other buttons. I had this exact same problem with a brand new Maytag in another house, tech replaced both keypad and electronic board, dishwasher never worked well after that (lights would intermitenly light up and work well on occasion.
For the past couple of days, the control panel on our dishwasher has not been working consistently. We press buttons, they light, and then the light goes off. Eventually, if we wait and try again, it may start. A couple of times it has started but then stopped again almost immediately. It seems to be electronic. The dishwasher was purchased in August 2011.
