Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

The "clean" light is blinking - so the dishwasher isn't working.


Answers :

Hi
\015\012
\015\012Please check if the clean light is blinking 7 times. If yes then please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry.
\015\012
\015\012If this doesn’t work then it’s an issue with the heater circuit, door switch, wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine.

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?

Dishwasher would not work and clean light would blink seven times. Asked an expert and they said to hit saniwash and heated dry two times. This work for a couple of times but now the dishwasher acts like there is no electrical power goimg to it. I tested the power with a voltmeter and there is power going to the circuit board.

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. It seems like it is blinking in sequence.. I cannot afford to spend this kind of money to have this fixed again. The co. that has the contract with kitchenaid is horrible and do not double check their work. The only thing tey care about is the bck.

Model no. MDB6100AWW. Just unloaded the dishwasher. Shut the door and immediately heard clicking (regular cadence). All indicator lights (arrow-shaped) for clean, dry, wash and heating delay were blinking. Opened the door, waited a few minutes, closed the door. Now, just the "Clean" and "6 Hour" arrow indicator lights and "Heated Dry" button light indicator are still blinking continuously. Cannot override. What's going on?
