Customer Question
My dishwasher is just...

My dishwasher is just flashing at the clean button and won't turn

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

It is a Whirlpool quiet partner three. It won't let me do anything to it it just keeps flashing clean

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

Only if it is fairly simple

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

I am a woman who is not very mechanically inclined. LOL

I tried doing the time delay to see if it would still turn off, which it did.

A power surge or outage could cause the "Clean" light to flash continuously after the power is restored to your home. Pressing the buttons on the panel in order and within 5 seconds resets the control panel and turns off the flashing light. The buttons must be pressed in the following order: “Heated Dry,” “Normal Wash,” “Heated Dry” and “Normal Wash.” After pressing the buttons, your dishwasher will begin a short, 12 minute test cycle and reset the control panel. See if that solves it.

ok, I did this and all the lights lit up for a quick second, then saw the 12 but I had hit the delay wash earlier and it seems to be counting down bc now it showed 16min left.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
it is running now but not sure what kind of cycle it is doing bc I had soap in the door for a real wash
Customer reply replied 11 months ago

Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 11 months ago

Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 11 months ago
