Clean light blinking, won't start. shut off breaker for five min.to reset


Answers :

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

With the symptom you`ve described ( specifically the clean lite ) this is an error of poor water circulation or a heating fault...many times manifesting in this manner but one in the same.

The\012 first place to look for a remedy is the sump well, wash pump area. \012You`ll need to remove the lower spray arm and then the filter below it.

1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.

2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.

3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".

a ) lift to depress the rear tab, i.e.

b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.

4 ) Now you can remove the center nut...

Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out.

Below the filter you`ll find either alot of food debris, garbage etc. , but also a cover with either a single #15 torx\012 head screw or it will simply be held with a lock tab which must be \012pushed to one side and the cover will pull straight up and out.

Now\012 you should see the chopper and screen assembly, it to can be clogged up\012 pretty bad, clean it best you can...you don`t really want to remove \012this part.

If my explanation is not clear enough, \012herre`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, \012these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.

\012The other posibility is the heating element or wires going to it. to \012access this you`ll need to remove the toe panel/kick plate...

The\012 element and wires are at the very back behind the sump assembly, so it \012is very tough to get at...I typically view it via a telescopic mirror \012and flashlight, or check it via the diagnostic attaching an ammeter to \012the live wire ( black ) near the junction box for amperage draw, below \012is an example...though your whirlpool will likely only pull about 7-8 \012amps.

place it here clamp on the black wire...

If\012 the element checks ok, the wires are attached ( if it draws amps, \012obviously the wires are attached ) then it is an issue with poor \012circulation as I alluded to initially.

Let me know how you make out, please keep me informed if you need further assistance or anything is unclear.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.
