    whirlpool dishwasher start light blinks

    Model Number: du1301xtvb4
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 1-5 years

    Start light blinks when pushed, reset the breaker, same cond, all other lights function normally. With the circuit board disconnected the dishwasher will drain for 2 minutes when powered on then stop. Is it the circuit board or the control panel itself?

    When the start/resume key blinks slowly, it usually means that the dishwasher doesn't think the door is shut yet. Have you inspected the door latch bracket to see if anything is broken that would not allow the door switches to connection when the door closes?

    This is the door latch bracket for your model dishwasher:

    I didnt test the switches electrically, but I did look at the latch and it appears normal, it does click and positvely hold the door shut and the light doesnt start flashing until you shut the door and push the start button. Should I test the switches in the latch for continuity?
