Having problems with your Whirlpool 24 in. GU2500XTPS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher ?

Clean light blinking will not start

\015 Stoped during cycle. clean light blinking will not start in any cycle\015

Answers :

If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When\015\012the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops\015\012working and locks the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all\015\012buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the\015\012element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all\015\012the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic\015\012cycle. Let it go through the diagnostic to test the function of the element.(1-2 minutes). When it finishes, open the door and touch the element to see if it is hot (be careful, it can get pretty hot so wet your fingers to avoid burns).
Once the diagnostic has cleared, you should be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If\015\012the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit\015\012(ie. element, thermostat or wiring).
It rarely happens but it could\015\012also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed\015\012(slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door\015\012when you close it).\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012

Good luck!
