my whirlpool will not dry, it gets warm at best but will not dry, so far I have replaced heating element and hi limit switch, when I run the diagnostic test the clean light will blink 4 times. Any ideas?

Are sure your reading the error codes right?

I'm attaching your tech data sheet below, look on Page 7--->Service Diagnostics with Error Codes

But lets first do a reset back to default.

Anytime you replace a part on these dishwashers you always have to run the SERVICE DIAGNOSTICS CYCLE, and let it run all the way through to reset it back to default.

Entry sequence: Press any 3 keys in the sequence 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3 with no more than 1 second between key presses. NOTE: Some models have replaced the “Clean” LED with “Completed.”
The Service Diagnostics Cycle will start when the door is closed.

--->Invoking Service Diagnostics clears all status and last run information from memory and restores defaults. It also forces the next cycle to be a sensor calibration cycle.

LET IT RUN ALL THE WAY THROUGH: Service diagnostic cycle will take about 23 minutes.

Do that and run a cycle and see if it starts heating.:)
