I have a Whirlpool DU1048 that started out with a blinking clean light. I reset the dishwasher by pressing the heated dry and normal buttons twice. That worked the clean light stopped blinking. The problem now is the dishwasher seem to be stuck in the wash cycle. I finally have to turn it off after over an hour washing. Is this possibly a heating element problem? is that user replaceable?

I pressed the POWER button to turn on the dishwasher. I pressed the SELECT button, hit HEATED DRY button and the LIGHT WASH buttons. I then hit the START/PAUSE button to start the cycle. All lights came on as normal & I heard the machine trying to **** up water like it normally does. Within 5 minutes or so, the machine started to BEEP & BEEP every minute. When I came to the check why the beeping noise was on, I saw that all the WASH PROGRAM lights were all blinking. I hit the START/PAUSE

My Kenmore ULTRA WASH dishwasher model #1603* does not respond to any command. When I select a desired washing I only get a blinking light on my selection and nothing else. If I select ''Cancel/Drain'' it blinks as well. I receive no response at all if I select ''Start/Resume''. To stop the blinking I must turn off the circuit breaker. When I restore the power, the control board is not lit, however, selecting any of the wash cycles and the blinking starts once again. The manual refers to a blink

I have a Triton dishwasher. Last cycle, it completed washing then started drying and started beeping and the drying light is flashing.

I have a Gallery 900 series GLDB958AS dishwasher. The cycle status lights (just right of the "time remaining" status window) continually blink. None of the buttons on the front panel work and every 10 minutes or so the water pump starts up for about a minute then shuts off. No water enters the dishwasher. I tried turning the power off then on but there is no change. Every so often a random cycle light will blink or light up for a minute, then turns off.

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

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.

Looking at some of the blogs, most often it seems to be the heater or the control panel - does this diagnostic test help to pinpoint what could be wrong?
