Whirlpool GU2400XTPS3 blinking start light
« on: October 06, 2011, 02:41:34 PM »
Have blinking start light and double bars in display - machine will not start..  When normal is pushed the right bar goes out and the normal light remains on.  No other buttons have any effect.

Thanks for any help!



Model GU2400XTPS3

Hi,

Here is the tech sheet, can you run diagnostics?

J can not run the diagnostics.  I have checked door interlocks and they work.  I have the fast blinking light and am currently checking the keypad.  It appears that I have some anomalies.  In some cases I get readings without pushing the switch and in others the switch does not change anything.  I need to understand the nomenclature before going further,    In the keyboard function table what does     P 1-12 mean?  1 and 12, 1 or 12, or 1 thru 12.  When checking do I need to run all combinations or just find one that works.  I am taking the readings on the side as I do not have a probe small enough to go into the plug.

I reset the control panel  using the hi-temp wash / heater dry sequence 3 times and it ran for a few minutes then the blinking light.  I could not restart the dishwasher.   Later we had a power outage and when the power came back on the dishwasher worked for 30 -40 seconds.  A few hours later the dishwasher started and ran for a few seconds again.  It seems like there is a thermal circuit breaker that is failing.
