\015\012When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops\015\012working and locks the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are\015\012non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and\015\012feeding electrical current into the water.
\015\012
\015\012To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door\015\012and press these buttons in sequence...

\015\012-high temp wash
\015\012-heated dry
\015\012
\015\012...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic\015\012cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
\015\012You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.
\015\012
\015\012If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie.\015\012element, thermostat or wiring).
\015\012It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly\015\012when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it\015\012doesn't hit the door when you close it).

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
