Hi,
Please reset the unit once by unplugging the power cable of the device.
and also mail me the brand name and the type of your device, so that i can give you the exact solution.
This is often the electronic control card, or motor relay, but it is often worth unplugging and reseting any component connector plugs and sockets, as they can work loose, and low-level electronic sensors rely on good connections. Pay particular attention to any plug and socket that looks corroded, burnt, brown, or otherwise discolored compared with the rest. High resistance contacts can create intermittent faults, and cause high current parts of the machine to stop working (e.g. heating elements, or motors) Pull off any suspect plug/socket, and clean the contacts with a small file or emery board . Try above steps hopefully it should work. Thank you........

      Before testing the timer motor, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse boxor breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
      The timer motor regulates the length of time power is routed to each component. If the timer motor does not function properly, it can result in a wide range of problems. Common symptoms include sticking in a cycle, cycle times problem or failure of the dishwasher to start at all.










      window.google_render_ad();

      To service the timer motor, it is necessary to access the control panel in the door. Access varies by model; on some models you can remove just the control panel on others you must remove the interior or exterior panel of the door.

    My delay light has come on and I cant get the dishwasher to start. The delay light goes out after the time has expired but if you try to move it to the start position the light comes on again


    The Control is programmed to stop running and not allow any further cycles if it detects a water heating problem (no temperature increase detected in heated Main Wash on 3 consecutive cycles). The Control will flash the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and will disable the Start/Resume key until cleared.

    To clear and reset the control press in this order: Heated Dry ? Normal ? Heated Dry ? Normal and then let the unit run for 1-2 minutes and then press Cancel and let the dishwasher complete the cancel cycle. The dishwasher should operate normally again unless it does not detect a temperature rise in the main wash cycle.

    It could be caused by a Heater circuit problem if it continues to stop and flash the Clean light.

    It could have one of the following failures:
    Open in heater.
    Open connection or component in heater circuit.
    Faulty heater drive circuit on control.
    It can also be caused by the wash pump not pumping water past the heater efficiently.

    see this causes and fix it. God bles you
    Check Fault Codes If the display lights are flashing and there is an error code in the display window, check the Error Codes guide on our website to determine which component has failed or is failing

    Touchpad If the display lights are flickering for no reason, the touchpad might need to be replaced. Sometimes when the touchpad is defective the display lights are flashing randomly.

    Touchpad and Control Panel If the lights are flashing on the display the entire touchpad and control panel assembly might be defective. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

    Heating Element Assembly If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element assembly might have burned out. The heating element assembly heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element assembly can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

    Drain Pump If lights are flashing on the control panel, the drain pump might not be working properly. For two-wire drain pump motors check them for continuity using an Ohm meter. If it's defective YOU'LL need to replace it. Drain pumps are not repairable.

    Dishwasher won't start - lights for Normal Wash and Cancel are flashing

    Clean light flashing


    this is a safety failure of the unit not heating the water properly. if you push the " water heat, air dry, water heat, air dry" in that order, then it will go into the program mode and clear out that failure code.
    then try the unit again, if you open the door during the heat cycle or it doesnt heat properly it will happen again. make sure you have hot enough water, 120 degrees, going to the unit and dont open the door after you start the cycle. if it continues call sears for service as it has a 1 year warranty.

    You have a internal leak in the dishwasher...there is a safety float system in the base (below where you put the dishes in!) of the unit, which in the event of water in the base will stop the cycle and activate the drain pump continiously.... You will have to open the unit and find the leak. Don't know these models, but usually you have to remove side panels and front panel, drain water from the base and re-start....then check with flashlight where the leak is. Oshie
