No water in the tub would indicate the drain is clear (unless it never filled at all...have you confirmed? Do you hear water leaving the unit?).
Those bleeps and flashing lights are of course the machines desperate effort to tell you it's problems and the code may be in the owners manual or a call to the manufacturer.
I'm a big one for checking grunge accumulation and would ensure the discharge hose is clear. This gets back to hearing water leaving the machine. You may need to pull the unit to check the hose, although a common blockage is right at the connection to your disposal.
Also, check for debris under the filter screen in the bottom of the tub, another place detritus accumulates.
Hello - Try resetting the dishwasher by disconnecting the power to the unit. This will clear most flashing lights. You can disconnect power by flipping the circuit house breaker off and back on for approximately two minutes. If this does not prove to be successful, contact a professional to move forward accurately. Dishwasher could possibly have a faulty control board or wiring failure.
Hello Brian, welcome to FixYa. Based on your post I understand your dishwasher is a Kenmore and the clean light is flashing and it won't start, correct ? If so, this is usually an error code indicating there was a problem in the heating process the last cycle it ran, however if you could provide the complete model number I could speak specifically to whether it applies to your machine and potentially what to do about it. Thank you for choosing FixYa and I look forward to your reply. Regards, Macmarkus :)
I have a Haier HDP18PA with the same problem... I tried tilting mine backwards while running...this made a mess BUT the beeping stopped BUT the lights were still flashing. Turned it off and started it again and the lights still were flashing BUT no beeping. Decided to try tilting it forward while running ... made another mess BUT the lights stopped flashing. Turned it off again and restarted it and it is now running fine. Good luck!
Try tilting your dishwasher forwards. Be warned that water will escape from the front. I have had this problem and paid an engineer to come and tell me this. If your machine is not completely level water collects at the front and does not empty. This then causes the machine not to work. Good Luck
Tilt your washer forwards. Water will leak from the front but once this has cleared your dishwasher should be ok again. I paid an engineer to come and tell me this. If your dishwasher is not completely level this can sometimes happen. Hope this helps.
