For recognizing deadlocks, one should look for threads that get stuck on one of the following:

  • .Result, .GetAwaiter().GetResult(), WaitAll(), and WaitAny() (When working with Tasks)
  • Dispatcher.Invoke() (When working in WPF)
  • Join() (When working with Threads)
  • lock statements (In all cases)
  • WaitOne() methods (When working with AutoResetEvent/EventWaitHandle/Mutex/Semaphore)
