Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher
My dishwasher will not longer work. The clean light keeps blinking. I have pushed cancel and I would drain but the light will continue to blink. I have shut the power off at the breaker and that did not work. I need help. The bad part about this is the dishwasher is not that old.
Press back and forth between hi-tempwash and sani rinse several times to get all lights to come on if not then press sani rinse and heated dry back and forth several times. one of though combos will start the test mode. the test mode will stop the light from blinking and you can use the dishwasher again

I had the identical problem with the blinking clean light on the Quiet Partner™ II System. What a pain in the rear!
Clicking Sanitize and Heated Dry button back and forth made the system reset itself out of the funk it was in. Thank you for this remarkably helpful post!
The real question here is this... Why is this happening? I bet it is built in to the system to generate extra revenue for Whirl Pool service calls.
If someone is pissed off enough and has no life, maybe they can begin a class action lawsuit against Whirlpool. Anti Trust or something like that?

Works for Quiet Partner I as well - Pushed, alternatingly...HEATED DRY + HI TEMP buttons over and over. Waited for the lights to go through their sequence 2 minutes...and FIXED.
Whirlpool authorized repair center told my wife that electronics were bad and would be big $$$ to replace. Unit is only a little over 2 years old.
Thanks so much !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Made my day

Also for Quiet Partner IV. Press sani and heat back and forth then shut and press start. 3 minutes time to wait. and should work.

Thank u soooo much it worked... sanirinse and heated dry now my bf will be proud of me..

I pushed the buttons as stated above and it is working again??? Wonder if this will happen on every load? You would think that Whirlpool would figure out that they have a problem by the time they get to "Quiet Partner IV"???? The last time this happened we did have a service man repair a heating sensor and it ran around $150

I've found that the blinking clean light, code 7, can be induced by using hot water excessively prior to starting the dishwasher. The felt temp of the hot water seems to be good but the dishwasher is looking for a higher temp than whats available. My work around is to rinse and load the dishwasher then put it on a delay start for a time I know that water use is minimal and hot water recovery has taken effect.

SOURCE: clean light is flashing
This can be a common issue with some Whirlpool manufactured dishwashers. This information may help in your situation. The following link explains how you may be able to clear the blinking clean light problem:
Now, keep in mind all dish washers are not alike and have different panel options. If you do not have the same set up that I have mentioned, the tech sheet for your dishwasher will explain the touch pad functions. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel under the door and lists the proper sequence of buttons to push for diagnostics and troubleshooting.
NOTE: Sometimes the tech sheet is located behind the inner door panel. You will need to remove the screws securing the inner panel to access it if this is the case. Make sure you turn off the main power breaker before doing so.
Sometimes this can be a momentary glitch in operation. However, if the problem keeps reoccuring the number of flashes is an indication of which circuit is causing your problem. Again, refer to your tech sheet to determine this.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

Testimonial: "Worked perfectly! Thank you."
Tips for a great answer:
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.
