Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The model is a Whirlpool # du1055xt5q3 I received infomation on how to get the clean light to stop blinking. I pushed the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in sequence and that worked, now it is doing the same thing and that doesn't work now. The light blinks 7 times at a time.Can this be fixed ?


Answers :

Hi,

The blinking always refer to a certain problem. 7 times blinking refers to defective heating element or control board.

USUALLY 99% PEOPLE HAVE FAULTY CONTROL BOARD. YOU WOULD BE LUCKY ENOUGH IF YOU WOULD ESCAPE.

Replace control board, Once replaced would fix the issue.

Hope i helped.

Thanks for using "Fixya".
The blinking "clean light" is a common problem with some of the\015\012Kenmore and Whirlpool models dishwashers. The problem is usually\015\012attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling.\015\012Apparently, there are some issues with the temperature sensing circuits\015\012in some dishwashers that causes an error code to be generated if a\015\012certain water temperature is not achieved in a specified time interval\015\012(this time may differ between models). There is a reset sequence that\015\012you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.
\015\012
\015\012To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run\015\012your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot BEFORE you start\015\012the dishwasher. This will heat the water in the supply\015\012line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink\015\012supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot\015\012water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that\015\012is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank\015\012located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the\015\012requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault\015\012reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel\015\012under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will\015\012be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a\015\012component problem, it will depend on the number of flashing lights in\015\012the sequence. Refer to the tech sheet to determine WHAT component is\015\012affected and how to troubleshoot.

I have this model dishwasher and last year I spent close to $300.00 having this control panel replaced and as soon as the warranty went p it stopped working again, but there is a green light that blinks next to right side where it says clean.

My dishwasher, a Whirlpool ADP 931, has stopped working. Possibly because the door was opened during operation, right after it was started. There is some kind of error condition indicated through a blinking Start light, but I don't know how to analyze this. This is a quite simple model with very few buttons to press. When I turn the program knob right to start it, the only thing that happens is that the green Start lights begins to blink continuously. There is also another green light

One day the diswasher was working fine...the next time it turned it on it ran for about 3 min. then shut off and seemed to have no power. I checked the breaker...it was fine.

Zanussi Dishwasher ZDT6053. Holding the On/Off button causes the indicator lights to work correctly, but as soon as you remove your finger from the spring loaded button, all the lights go off. Would guess that on/off button should electronically latch via the control board. Have removed mains power for 60 secs in the hope of a 'hard' reset, but no fix. Is there anything obvious to check or fix or must it be a replacement control board?

My Maytag dishwasher goes for long stretches when it won't turn on even though I push the proper buttons. The buttons won't light either. It turns on by itself after a couple of weeks of sitting idle. Some of the lights may blink on the start panel while the dishwasher doesn't work, but only on occasion will it fully operate. I have turned off the power and turned it back on, hoping to reset the computer part of the dishwasher. It didn't work.
