Resolved Question:

I have a whirlpool dishwasher, DU1050. The "Clean" light is flashing. The owner's manual says to call for service and have the heater circuit checked out. Is this something I can do myself?

Bend the door striker down so it barely goes over the door liner (door striker is the part that goes into the latch on the frame at the top).

Close the door and press: Heated dry >>> High temp wash >>>Heated dry>>>High temp wash>>>heated dry

all the lights will flash then press cancel. That should be everything that you can do before calling service. If it works then great, if not then you have a problem with your heating system.
