Question about Whirlpool 24 in. GU3200XTP Built-in Dishwasher
I have a whirlpool dishwasher just over a year old and the clean light keeps flashing and I can't get the dishwasher to start, if I select the cancel button it runs for a couple of minutes but the clean light continues even with the door open or shut, all the buttons work if pushed but nothing happens.

you just save me and my wife a 129.00 service call. this is the strength of people like you and many others that help people at trying times.may God bless you!
Thank you so much! Worked perfectly. I was just about to call the repair man and thought I'd look it up first. I would have never known! :)
Wow; just tried this and it totally worked. So grateful for you help! Thank you! My just over a year whirlpool stainless steel dishwasher clean light would not quit blinking and it would not start. I looked in the manual and it said to call the repair man. Also looked at e-how; said the same thing. I tried your directions and they WORK! Now why couldn't whirlpool put this in the manual? Just wondering...

Flashing clean only means that the water didn't get hot enough at some point during the cycle. Are your dishes dry at the end? If not, it's the heater element, these will run you about $75.
If they are dry, then you're just not getting enough hot water into the washer. Make sure it's not connected to the cold water supply... (it happens)
You probably won't find that tech sheet. They stopped doing that years ago.

I had this same problem and had to have a tech out to look at it. It is a heater issue, but all he did was reset the dishwasher using the sequence mentioned above. What he told me was that the water temperature was not getting hot enough and suggested I run the hot water on my sink until its hot so the dishwasher immediately pulls senses water. The light came on the first time after about a year. It recently came on again and I reset the dishwasher again. Hopefully it won't happen for another year. BTW, I don't run the hot water at my sink and if I have to reset it once a year, so be it.

The flashing clean light is usually an indication of a problem (error code). There should be a tech sheet inside the lower kick panel under the door. The tech sheet will give you details on what to do to clear the problem and/or troubleshooting advice. The flashing clean light may also be in conjunction with other indicators on the front panel. When reading through the troubleshooting section pay close attention to see if there are any other indicators lit at the same time. This will narrow down the error to a specific problem. I wish I could be or more help, but there are several different models that indicate errors in the same manner and mean different things. I hope this may be of some help to you.

Push the following buttons in this order within 6 seconds:heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal. This will restart the dishwasher but you need to check the heater in the bottom.

Had the same problem. Press the sani-rinse and heated dry button back and forth and it should reset.

SOURCE: Clean button will not go off
Alternate solution: Within 6 seconds, alternately press "heated dry" then "normal" buttons. Wait for all lights to come on and for the diswasher to finish washing the load.

You will have to reset the console. To do this, close the door and press these buttons in sequence...
-high temp wash
-high temp wash
...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.

I am having the same problem the dishwasher is not even a year old. The clean light keeps flashing and only when I hit the cancel button it keeps a noise and then shortly stops.
