Whirlpool Dishwasher GU1500XTLB2 clean led blinks 7 times

(1/1)

wyandotford:
Model Number: GU1500XTLB2
Type: 575-0
Serial: FP3505435


Problem: Clean LED Blinks 7 times and no response from any inputs. (Unit was operating normal until this fault).

Actions Taken: (Per the service pointer found online for similar models.).
Confirmed the two door switches are working properly (tested with a multimeter).
Confirmed the heating element (tested with multimeter, 12.5 ohms).
Checked all wire connections (pulled off and reinstalled).
Based on an on-line video I found I did not test the thermistor, see http://fixitnow.com/wp/2007/01/20/bl...t-dishwashers/.
Ran the High Temp Scour, Air Dry, High Temp Scour, Air Dry diagnostics cycle. This unit

These can be hard ones to repair.

When the clean led blinks 7 times it's something to do with the heating cycle.

There are times I have replaced heating elements to repair the problem and other times replaced the control board.

There were some whirlpool dishwashers were I ordered a heating element and the new element also had a replacement control board in the box.

How old is the dishwasher?

wyandotford:
I believe the unit is about 4-5 years old.

Last night I tore apart the units motor and found a bearing that was completley worn out. I couldn't see how but it appears moisture had gotten to the bearing. I'm going to replace the bearing and try the motor this evening.

I'll update later.

Thanks

wyandotford:
Replaced the two bearings in the motor and now it is operating like new.

Thanks for the forums.  Very helpful.
