Whirlpool GU1500XTLQ1 - I set it to NORMAL WASH and left

Customer Question

Whirlpool GU1500XTLQ1 - I set it to "NORMAL WASH" and left the house. Returned in 6 hrs. or so and it was still running! Pressed all buttons, turned circuit breaker off and on. Now, "CHINA CRYSTAL" AND "RINSE ONLY" LED's blink. "TIME REMAINING" shows "- -". Water in tub. What's up?

Thanks, Ray

LED's were off. Pressed "CANCEL" and all looked normal. Tried a "NORMAL" wash cycle.


"SENSING" LED stayed on - never noticed that before. Normal countdown timer at first, then "NORMAL" LED went out and "CHINA CRYSTAL" LED came on.


"TIME REMAINING" display started doing the windup thing, then reset to "64" or so.


Steady blinking on "CHINA CRYSTAL" and "RINSE ONLY" LED's. No pattern.

ok thats also a code you will need a new touchpad for this the blinking lights mean that you have a stuck key
