Ok, I talked to Whirlpool customer help (they can help??:yikes:) and hung up under the guise that turning the breaker off for 30 minutes might resolve the issue...but NOOOOO. It did start running for a bit after I pressed the "Start" with "2" in the timer and then went into it's spastic mode of blinking Glass Express after about 1 minute and quit running. Anyway, this dishwasher just decided to lock up with this led flashing.

I can't clear it using the cancel cycle, can't start it, can't choose another cycle or options either. When I try pressing the "Cancel/Drain", the "Normal" cycle led flashes and the "Glass Express goes to a constant light; after pressing/releasing the Cancel/Drain, the light on Normal goes off and the Glass Express goes back to a constant blinking.

I hope this is clearly explained, if not ask away and I'll provide what I can to aid in figuring out this machine's psychological difficulties and give it a dose of whatever anti-depressant it needs. Who knows, maybe Hydrocodone...:shock:....just would like it up and running again....I checked the site for anything similar and didn't find a solution there.

 

Thanks in advance!! :cool:

Need the number after this model number to provide the correct tech sheet please..it will be a revision number so the tech sheet # changes depending on that last number..sounds like you have shorted/stuck keys on the keypad at this point.

The Tech Sheet has vanished or I'd have referred to it. I remember seeing it at some point, but alas, not when I REALLY need it. I appreciate the link. Can't get into Diag mode since there appears to be touchpad intereference. No damaged circuits on the board, motor works, and it will run at it's own will but stops after 30-60 seconds with the button going into a constant rapid blink on the "Glass Express" LED.

Can the touchpad be removed without damage? Guessing not but it's worth asking. There's a place on the touch pad that's been damaged with an indentation going to the outer part of the circle around the button, but it's not at this particular option and seems that all buttons "click" when pressed.....every other button on the wash cycles will work but not any of the options will function. When I press the "Cancel/Drain" the LED on "Normal" will light, then goes off when I press "Cancel/Drain" again. Repeating this, the "Glass Express" will go constant and the "Normal" will light and blink rapidly.......

I read somewhere "There's only two kinds of washers: working and broken" I agree....that's true with most appliances and automobiles. They're GREAT when trouble-free and HORRIBLE when broken or malfunctioning.......:X

As it turns out, I found the control board on Ebay and it's working like a charm now. Thanks for the attempt at helping.;) I would have agreed thast the panel might have a stuck button, however, I could get some response when I pressed various ones, but never could "Reset" properly. I was willing to try the board first since I found it (brand new) for less than half of anywhere else.
