I have a Whirlpool GU1100 built-in diswasher that will not clear the pot & pans selection. It is stuck with the pots & pans and the cancel buttons lit and blinking. It will not start or clear. I have tryed to shut the power off for awhile and this has not helped. Other buttons can be pushed and will light but the other two remain blinking. If the clear button is pushed it will clear the other button but not the pots & pans or itself. Is this a problem I can fix myself?

I have just moved into a new house with an Asko Dishwasher. It is not working. I program it, the icon for the cycle I have chosen lights up in red, I press start, that lights up in red, the water runs in for about 30 seconds and then nothing more happens.

Whirlpool GU2300 built in Dishwasher. It rather suddenly began shutting off in mid-cycle. If I cancel or open it, getting it to finish the cycle or even drain takes many tries.Once started, the cycle might take several hours with long pauses during the cycle. When it puases, none of the lights are on at all. If the cycle is disturbed, the normal wash light blinks, and if I hit cancel, the cancel light and the normal wash light blink.

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
