Is the 'Clean' light steady, or flashing? If it is flashing does it have a pattern?  Like 3 flashes and a long pause then 2 flashes long pause, repeat?

My heavy cycle started to not work, so I called a technician in. The problem was the control panel as I suspected, but there are old control panels and new ones. My problem was that I tried replacing the old defective model with another one when I really needed to get the updated model. Whirlpool must have realized the control panels have a bug that causes this problem in time, and updated their parts for repairs.

There is a service pointer out for this to replace the main control.
Customer Concern:
After 10 minutes of operation the dishwasher goes into cancel drain and stops. This issue can be very
sporadic. Technicians will find a 6-1 error code recorded in the service diagnostics
Possible Causes:
This issue may be caused by:
Siphoning through the drain hose•
Severe Sudsing•
Debris in the sump•
Control Board software error may cause a false error code resulting in cycle cancellation. (This issue is more•
likely to happen in areas that are susceptible to abnormal power supply variations)
If the customer has a cancel drain issue, check the following:
1. Make sure the dishwasher is installed according to installation instructions provided with the unit.
2. Check for water siphoning out through the drain hose. Insure that the drain hose termination point is
above the water level in the tub. (The drain loop must be attached to the side of the tub and high enough
to prevent siphoning.)
3. Check for severe sudsing or a malfunctioning Rinse Aid dispenser.
4. Check for locked rotor in wash pump.
5. Remove any debris in the bottom of the sump/chopper area.
6. Check for water supply and proper water level in the dishwasher.
7. If all the above checks are OK, then the control will need to be replaced with one that has upgraded
software designed to handle abnormal power variations.
