Thanks to another post, i found how to clear this code, by alternating between the High temp dry and air dry buttons the dishwasher went into diagonostics, then cleared. I found then that the washer would fill but not wash then it would drain. I found the motor was almost seized, I am replacing. The 7 flashes must be a code for the motor going on overload.

Buttons on the dishwasher's control panel is not working. When starting a "normal" load, it switches to "clean" and does not start the wash.


Hello. Most likely, the humming sound you hear is a jammed drain pump which is activated immediately to pump out any stale or standing water below the level which you can see. Then, fresh, hot water enters the tub to start washing the dishes. I need the model number and exactly what lights are blinking--those blinking lights are error codes(combinations of 2 or more lights, one light blinking a certain number of times, then blinking again, a different number of times--ex 3 times, then 7 times) the lights blink a binary error code--thats why I need the model number to look up the code on the chart

How to reset Kenmore Elite 665-16572202 Dishwasher...clean light blinks 7 times pauses then repeats. My model does not have a Heated Dry button it has an Air Dry button.


Here's the key sequence(s) to use, depending on how your keys are labeled:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry.

This will start the diagnostic cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the dioagnostic cycle and clear the error. Please note, that this clears the error, but if you haven't found the cause (water-not-heating error), the condition will come right back the next time you run the dishwasher.

What does it mean when my clean light blinks but I cannot cancel or reset it


Ah, the famous (or infamous) Clean-light blinking problem. Watch that blinking light.... Does it blink 7 times, pauses, and repeats? Or does it blink 3 times (or some other number). The most common problem is 7 blinks which means "water not heating error". This could be caused by a bad heating element, a bad thermal cutoff, a bad controller.

What to if the clean light is flashing and dishwasher will not start


That blinking light is trying to tell you that there is something wrong with your dishwasher. Watch that blinking light.... Does it blink 7 times, pauses, and repeats? Or does it blink 3 times (or some other number). The most common problem is 7 blinks which means "water not heating error". This could be caused by a bad heating element, a bad thermal cutoff or thermostat, a bad controller, or a problem with the door latch and/or switches.

The clean light on kenmore dishwasher elite keeps blinking and will not stop


That blinking light is trying to tell you that there is something wrong with your dishwasher. Watch that blinking light.... Does it blink 7 times, pauses, and repeats? Or does it blink 3 times (or some other number). The most common problem is 7 blinks which means "water not heating error". This could be caused by a bad heating element, a bad thermal cutoff or thermostat, a bad controller, or a problem with the door latch and/or switches. Usually there is a tech-data sheet located on the other side of the toe-kick panel which will explain the meaning of the varius blink codes, but you might still need to call a technician to fix the problem. Don't forget to put that tech data sheet back so he can find it and use it to fix your dishwasher!

The green clean light is flashing. It will not go off even when we press cancel. The wash cycle was not completed. The model # is 665.17283400.


The green clean light means that your dishwasher isn't heating the water. Go to the link below to see how to reset the error code and check for reasons that the error happened.

KENMORE ELITE DISHWASHER - MULTI-LIGHTS FLASHING


Look at your manual, usually available on net for reading or downloading. Blink lights are often used to code out a problem with various combinations and repetition rates to indicate trouble code number for look-up in manual.

Blinking Green Light


Here's what I could find on the your error code:

A blinking clean light that flashes 7 times and cannot be reset, occurs when the electronic control does not detect a water temperature increase during the main wash. This could be an indication of a failed heating element, in line thermostat, electronic control board and/or wiring. This problem can also occur if the main wash pump becomes clogged and it not spraying sufficiently. I hope this helps you.

PS A faulty door latch can also cause this error code.
