Dishwasher not running

Whirlpool Dishwasher DU1055XTVT
The Clean light is continuously flashing and when I press the start/resume button (or any other) the light above those buttons flash 3 times. I have had this happen a couple of weeks ago and disconnected power to the unit at the breaker then restored power and the problem was remedied. This time however, the problem continues. What to do?

I would Google this. There is a code of button pushing that would fix some machines that had the flashing light trouble. I am not sure what models it was now, KitchenAid was for sure. Maybe you can find the answer there or someone here will know. You may also need a new board.

■ Clean light is flashing
The dishwasher has malfunctioned. Call for service.

RE: Dishwasher not running

After a Google search, the best I can tell is that a flashing clean light indicated a problem in the heating circuit. ie. element, sensor, supply temp.
