Lights are not on/blinking lights

Why are the lights not on or why are they blinking?

If the connection light indicator (A) is not on or the Amber House icon (C) or Blue House icon (D) are blinking, it means the appliance is not connected to the home network or router. Make sure the appliance is powered on and in an active state by pressing the "Power" button.

How to connect to WiFi

Now that you have downloaded the app, created and verified your account it is now time to connect your appliance. There are a couple of methods that can be used, we recommend following the instructions found in the app. The app will walk you through every step of  the process and get your appliance connected to the wireless network in your home.

Alternate Connection Methods

Manual Connection 

This manual connection method can be completed from your mobile device, laptop or desktop computer.

  1. Open the WiFi settings screen
  2. Look for a network named similarly to WP_11_22_33_44. This number will match the MAC ID on your SAID label. 
  3. Connect to this network. When prompted, the network password will be the SAID number.
  4. Open a web browser
    1. Go to the address
    2. A page should appear allowing you to select or enter your home network name and password
      • If your home network name does not show in the list close the browser and try again
      • or manually enter the home network name
      • NOTE: The home network name and passwords are case sensitive 
  5. Verify the appliance is connected. Once the dishwasher connects to your router, the dishwasher will automatically attempt connection with the Whirlpool server over the Internet. The Blue House icon (D) will then blink slowly to show the Internet connection process is occuring. This process can take up to 2 minutes. Upon successful connection, the Blue House icon will remain lit.
