Having problems with your Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher ?

Whirlpool gold dishwasher will not work the clean light flashing 7 times what does that mean?


Answers :

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. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2\015\012minutes).
You should now 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!

Today when I got home from work, the machine just bleeped at me and and the green LED light by the start button flashed 9 times over and over again. Does anyone know what those 9 flash

I have a Kenmore 665.1373 Ultra Wash dishwasher that will not work. In the past few weeks, it stopped mid-cycle, the the clean light began to flash. Sears sent out a technician who told us that the latch was not catching. He adjusted it, did something with a computer and the dishwasher worked for a couple of days. This time, it would not start a cycle, it would only show heated dry if you pushed the smart wash button and nothing if you press start. It looks like some of the lights are continuous
