SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Dishwasher clean light ind flashing and won't start

That means the control sensed that the heater in the d/w did not operate 3 times in a row. so the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. use a meter to see if it reads open, if so order a heater assy it will come with a new control replace it to. If your heater checks good press in sequence normal wash , heat dry ,normal wash,heat dry , normal wash , heat dry three times within 6 sec all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that d/w does not heat it's own water your incoming water temp should be 120. the d/w will maintain that temp. when starting your d/w first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your d/w this insures your unit fills with hot water and not cold

You will have to reset the console. To do this, close the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

SOURCE: Kenmore dishwasher Lock On light flashing

holding the button for four seconds will not do it, you have to hold it until the light stops blinking and
will go back to normal, normall takes more than four seconds to unlock the unit, this is something
the sears repair techs know becouse the are trained on all this things but, they will not share this things, becouse thats how they make money

SOURCE: what does the error code on a kenmore dishwasher

Hi

To resolve this problem you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

* high temp wash
* heated dry
* high temp wash
* heated dry

all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it)


Let us know if you want to know something more else please accept the suggestion.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

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.

Dishwasher won't start and start button doesn't light, but other buttons respond


I think you still have warranty, it sounds you have faulty control panel, even if it's new does not mean it is good.

Clean light keeps blinking; dishwaher won't turn on


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 :)

Clean light flashes 7 times on Whirlpool DU1148XTPB3 dishwasher and it won't run.


Hello,

The light flashing 7 times indicates error code number 7 and E7 is a error code for the flowmeter. What the flowmeter does is measure the amount of water coming into the dishwasher. The E7 error code can be cleared aby pushing the buttons in this order

HIGH TEMP WASH-HEATED DRY-HIGH TEMP WASH-HEATED DRY -- OFF/CANCEL

The error code will be cleared after pushing the buttons in that order...if after running the E7 error code returns the flowmeter would need to be replaced

The flowmeter is the part on the left side of the tub it is where the water enters the tub
this is what it looks likeoldtech2332_96.jpg
The part number for it is W10195536

I have a kitchen-aid dishwasher model # KUDio1ibl6 and it will not come on and the clean light flashes 7 times then pauses and blinks 7 time again. Do you have any Idea what this code stands for I do not...


Hello Asa,

The light blinking seven times is a error code specifically it's error #7 .The E-7 error indicates the part called the flow meter is bad. To clear that error code and get the dishwasher to start push within 3 seconds
HIGH TEMP WASH -HEATED DRY-HIGH TEMP WASH- HEATED DRY

then push CANCEL sereval times to dishwasher shuts off..it should start and run then

If the blinks 7 times again the flowmeter will need to be replaced

ON some models the "HIGH TEMP WASH" button is labled power scrub instead of high temp wash
so in that case push POWER SCRUB-HEATED DRY-POWER SCRUB-HEATED DRY then cancel as described above

In case the E-7 error returns and the flowmeter needs to be replaced the part number for it is W10195536

My kenmore elite dishwasher will not start.


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.
