    We have a Kitchen Aid KUDI01IL dishwasher. It will not start and the clean light is flashing. Tried the cancel button, but clean light still flashes. We do not have the sanirinse and heat dry buttons, so can't exactly do the suggested fix. Tried it with buttons we do have with no success. Thanks for any help you can give.

    I have the same model with the same problem. Is there a water inlet filter that could be clogged?

On Whirlpool and Kitchenaids the flashing clean light means that there is a problem with the heating element circuit and probably the element itself. You can try to reset the machine by clicking the sanirinse and heat dry buttons back and forth a couple of times. All of the lights will come on and it will reset itself. If the machine keeps going to the flashing clean light then replace the heating element and reset the machine again.

Hi recyclr,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: IT WILL NOT START. THE CLEAN LIGHT IS FLASHING. HAD PROBLEM BEFORE AND HAD TO PAY A REPAIRMAN $100 TO RESET THIS. HOW DO YOU RESET THIS.

Turn the power off at the circuit breaker for ten minutes. Sounds like this is only a temporary fix. Something else is going on here. If the problem persists look to the control board. This part usually cost over $ 100 so if the d/w is over six years old I'd compare the costs of repair verses replacement. A new one can be had for under $ 500.

Feel free contact me again!

The Clean light is flashing and unit will not start. Manual says it is a heating circuit malfunction call a repairman. Heating element tests good, wiring appears fine. What is needed?


Hi, the reason why you are getting the flashing light is because the dishwasher failed to detect a 4 degrees rise in the water temp during the first 8 minutes of the cycle. Some reasons for this is a faulty heater, door switch,(heater runs through the nuetral side of the door switch), lack of water, d/w not filling correctly, should be just below heating element. Clear the fault by pressing following order. .

The dishwasher will go through a cancel cycle (drain the tub) and will then let you start it up again.

Control clean light keeps blinking and dishwasher will not function


Your dishwasher will do this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water. Sometimes just a false reading.

Reset your console by pressing: high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry

When all the lights are on you are set in diagnostic mode. Just hit cancel a you will be able to run your dishwasher as normal.
If this same light appears again then you have a bad element or thermostat.

Some lights are flushing and the dishwasher does


Hi,

If the clean light is flashing it is an indication of the water not heating up. I have attached a link to a sheet explaining what might be causing it and how to reset the control so you can use the dishwasher again.

Clean light flashing

If other lights than the clean light are flashing that is an indication there is a short circuit in the keypad control and that part would need replaced. Let me know if you need details on replacing that. If so I would need the complete model number from the tag on the dishwasher just inside the door.

Whirlpool Dishwasher power surge results in flashing clean button


I'm not sure what the sequence would be on your particular model as Whirlpool dishwashers can differ in operaiton. However, if you remove the lower kick panel under the dishwasher door, there should be a tech sheet either directly behind the panel, or tucked inside the door. The tech sheet will list all troubleshooting tips and any fault codes that the owner/operator's manual does not list. This is the SAME sheet the repairman will reference when they come to your home on a service call. Please let me know if you still require assistance. I hope this helps you.
