Customer Question
My dishwasher is now...

My dishwasher is now flashing a light. I can no longer program anything. Does this mean it is time for a new dishwasher?

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?

My dishwasher is a whirlpool gold - energy star(###) ###-####- mod GU2500XTP81 - Ser FR4907466. I do not know how to run a test cycle. None of the buttons respond.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

How easy is it? I dont want to call a technician just to find out I must replace the dishwasher.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I know of.

What light is flashing exactly as this is normally an error code?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
It is a small light on the upper left hand side of the controls - above the controls to program the wash.
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 11 months ago

OK, what button is it over? Is it the clean light?

It is above the Accu Sense button
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 11 months ago

OK perfect, thank you. So that light flashing means your touch control panel has failed and needs to be replaced. The control panel is different from the control board, so don't replace the board---that part is still good. Below is a link to the control panel you'd need to order and replace for your model.
